To be honest I liked "Shiva" better. Had a nice ring to it. Exodus has biblical connotations but also the most improtant thing is that it implies that people are leaving the game. Its sort of like when SOE named their expansion pack "Shadows of Luclin" not thinking that it would be abbreviated as SOL.

I vote you guys stick with Shiva. Its much cooler sounding even.

I thought Shiva was the name for the expansion and Exodus was the new name for EVE to replace Genesis.

Exodus is cool, fun will be made anyway. You ever looked up what meaning Shiva has as a deity ?

Not wanting to be pedantic but

Quote:
Shiva is the destroyer of the world, following Brahma the creator and Vishnu the preserver, after which Brahma again creates the world and so on. Shiva is responsible for change both in the form of death and destruction and in the positive sense of the shedding of old habits. In Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram or Truth, Goodness and Beauty, Shiva also represents the most essential goodness.


Linkage

So they both have religious connections.

I think Planes of Power would be a better name.

I would have called it "ShinRa"

Seriously though, Exodus is growing on me, Shiva was just the inhouse name

So the new name will be:

Eve Online: Exodus (Castor)
Eve Online: Exodus (Shiva)?

Shiva sounds good by itself but I don't think it works as well in a release name like EVE: Shiva, that's a name followed by another name and has an awkward feel to it. Exodus sounds good to me.

What was the name of the release version, btw? I started playing just after Castor was released.

More edit: Guess Hakera gave me the aswer to that question while I was editing. Smile

It makes sense, as Genesis is the first book in the Old Testament, and I'm pretty sure that Exodus is the second book.

Just think, in a few years time, we might all be playing Eve-Online: Ezekiel

I find it kinda ******ed that christians talk crap about Exodus having a religious meaning and etc. Wow, Shiva is a god itself. The ignorance is mindboggling. Exodus is a cool name, altho it won't stick for another 6 months I bet. People will just call it shiva...

Ok well im not all knowing or anything on this subject, but what i think is, theyre just changing the name of Eve the second genesis because the game is comepltely diffrent now in some ways. Gemini, and Castor, were both Eve Online, the second genesis, but the build of that game was still named gemini and castor. shiva will still be used to tell what build the game is in, but the main name will be Eve online -exodus. so you still have both, Exodus is not replacing the name shiva, because it wasnt going to be called Eve Online - Shiva.

yeah i see your point.

EVE Online - Shiva just doesn't have that ring to it like EVE Online - EXODUS. If you think about it, nearly everyone is going to want access to 0.0 for thier POS so a kind of EXODUS is going to happen.

*ponders the idea of charging isk for the use of our corp name*

*ponders logging into the game with 30k skillpoints and -10 standings towards all factions and oveur waiting outside station in his own personal titan*

*stops pondering before it gets him into trouble*


so yeah I kinda like the new name...um...er...eh...yeah. Razz
