Ingame Company Name Discussion July 2022

Good Morning!

There has been several comments the last few days the new server with alts that individuals would like to consider changing the name of the companies.

Currently we use OTG Omega and OTG Zeta.

On Orefena we used OTG Vanguard for the alts storming the beaches of the new server.

I’m uncertain if you can reuse the company name as soon as you change it or not.

There has also been discussion about changing the company crest we use to help make it stand out more among other crests in large groups.

Please use this thread to:

  • Provide your input on changing or keeping the current company names, yay or nah.
  • Suggestions for two companies names if you are in favor of updating our company names.
  • Provide your input on changing the crest, yay or nah.
  • Suggestions for new crest (screenshots).

I am going to leave this open to discussion for about a week before moving forward with a final decision to be made by staff.

Really liking the OTG Vangaurd name :slight_smile: So vote to use that one for alt, and OTG for the main.

Since we are so good at bear puns:

I’m not sure if we can use Vanguard again or not without moving people to that company. I don’t know how the reservations work if it’s account reserved or character reserved. People who transferred servers have to drop their company and the name isn’t always available again after the 24 hour thing. Will have to see if thats a popular choice.

I’d also like to avoid having one simply named OTG unless we get down to one guild.

Crest backgrounds…basically the light color is one of 3 faction colors.

The crest can be any of the following colors for the logo…

The crests with carts by them require purchase others are free…

How much for the turkey? :turkey:

Or really, how much for any of the paid ones? If it’s a modest cost, we could have a fund drive. I have a mild preference for the ones that cost simply because we won’t see them so often as the freebies.

I like the ones where you can tell them from a distance, not too fiddly.

All that said, my faves are all free. I like the flames one because we’re light-bringers, no? Theoretically.

My suggestion would be any of the “O” shapes. They work from a distance, and support “OTG” and “Omega”, if we keep that, or “OTG [something else]” if we don’t. There are a few, so we could have more than one OTG with an “O” as the banner, even “OTG-Vanguard”.

For the logo, from what I saw running around for Ebonscale Reach, I didn’t see anyone else with a black background and yellow circle like the paw crest Awduum created. I’d vote for that one to make it stand out more.

For the name, I don’t really have a preference. I’m good with all of the ones that have been suggested so far.

The bear claw is not an option anymore?

I like my Guild name…
Logo…mox nix…

I like what we have but will go along with whatever you decide.

Out of curiosity, this was for the alt company, correct? What is the final name of the alt company?

This was for both and no decision or change was made as yet since we didn’t get a whole lot of feedback.

I’m good with the name change, I like the bear head, however, at a distance I wouldn’t be able to tell what it was.

Our Existing Crest

Based on the suggestions - here’s what some look like from the game.

I just jumped into the game for the first time in a long time recently. (Been in game a few times and even joined in chat and talked with some folks.) Haven’t asked to rejoin the guild yet since I’m just trying to get a feel for whether enough has been done about the stuff I didn’t like to let me get to having fun. But, that had me look in the NW forum and saw this. So, take this with my grain of salt.

I agree not to drop down to just an OTG guild name. Honestly, even if there were going to be just one guild I would suggest never just using OTG unless the guild has unlimited size. If the game jumps up all of a sudden and a second guild is needed… you are back in the guild name game challenge.

I like the ouroboros themed crest (last pic in Sonicat’s post just above). I also like the swirly crest in that post. (It appears twice just after the current crest.)

Assuming that shield shape is independent from crest, I think it would help to see which crests people like on the different shields. (For example, I think the ouroboros would look better in a shield that isn’t colored in…)

Well I am partial to the bears :slight_smile: The first bear looks too much like the CA state bear.

That being said if we aren’t going bears, I like the last one the best.

For the most part the feedback I am looking for is related to the actual emblem itself not the full banner. As we don’t and have no aspirations to own territory the most important part here is that in game when very small and over our heads is it distinct and something we can pick out in a crowd.

The thing I hate about the system is how they don’t offer the same backgrounds in all shapes of the shield component and many of the backgrounds are a 50/50 horizontal segment making top left corner black and bottom corner yellow, or a yellow stripe down the middle with black edges, or checkered. There is no option for a border on the emblem which is the only part that you can change the color on. So 90% of the combinations look absolutely hideous.

If someone sees a background I’ve shared and it looks good but wants to see it with a different emblem let me know.
