Am I just behind the curve as usual, or have they announced the names for the drone regions yet? On the Influence Map they've been labeled already with the names that were chosen. I'm too lazy to list them here, but I can accurately say that the majority of them sound pretty stupid.

Any thoughts?

Arrow They sound better then what they were... ie random numbers & letters
Arrow It's all subjective. Whether they sound good or not is not really the question. Point is that if I'm not mistaken, they were chosen by a commission.

Yeah they are pretty terrible names. It say segment the drone regions, make it easier and rename it World of Spacecraft because you could easily mistake those names for fantasy mmo zones. It would need to be a terrible mmo to actually name there zones that though. NeutralNeutralNeutralNeutral

the names were never going to please everyone, no matter what they were called, of course not everyone is going to like every name.

So they settled for World of Warcraft names, because everyone loves WoW?

I've got nothing against "Outer Passage" or "Oasa".

But seriously, "Etherium Reach", "Cobalt Edge" and "The Spire" are all WoW related.

My first thought is that if the names chosen for the regions were to reflect the current inhabitants main attribute; the fact that they sound stupid would be in strict accordance this criteria, especially so for the drone regions. Laughing

One of the other Grimpaks was clearly hiding the news announcement about it from you, better keep an eye on that one.

The Spire is an actual place in WoW.
Etherium Reach and Cobalt Edge I am unsure about, as I haven't played in 10 months+, but they could be. One of the main ores in WoW is Etherium, and alot of places have names after it. Cobalt is a race you often meet, so "Cobalt Edge" is also very likely to be an actual palce.

This is all that needs to be said. It's nice that they have a name, so that I can say "We should go invade Cobalt Edge" instead of having to say "We should go invade H-38JD" and have everyone look at me with a deer-in-headlights face.YARRRR!! Smile

What is a "Oasa"?

Does it stand for "Observer's Assessment of Sedation and Anesthesia"?

If so, it's pretty much what I was doing when I lived there
