SARPBC2 Name-Storm!

Postby VivaEmptiness on Fri Sep 06, 2013 2:14 pm

What a terrible name for a thread.

This thread is a crowd-brainstorming session to generate ideas relating to what SARPBC2 might be called (if not SARPBC2).

Here's the official word (out of context) from Dave on the subject:
Psyonix-Dave wrote:We haven't fully decided if we are changing the name. If we did we would want to do it some way that still tied it to the original game though. We usually refer to the original game as Battle-Cars or Soccar for short. Battle-Cars has some trademark issues though and we felt that Soccar was just too odd sounding to be popular. There are also a lot of different aspects to take into account for naming a game (legal, branding, etc) which makes it difficult to do with a contest.


So ideally what I'm thinking is:

- Be as concise as possible (Brief but comprehensive ideas, possible single words)
- Ideas for possible new acronyms (SARPBC doesn't roll off the tongue)
- Relate ideas to SARPBC (There must be a link)
- Be a genius. (This could generally work to your advantage)

Maybe it should just be called its acronym?
"SARPBC 2" looks pretty when I lay my eyes on it. And in the description they could spell out the entire thing while summarizing what the game is all about.

They should go down the Ipad route, call it the exact same as the original!

I think it'll have to be as long as the original.

it's what drew a lot of us to the game, it's definitely not something you see everyday.

US: Mechanical Soccer
UK: Mechanical Football

I love soccer, if I have known that sarpbc was about soccer, would have got it the first day it came out. Like on my iPad, first thing I searched when looking for games, was "Soccer".

Or, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars, THE BATTLE BEGINS

Yeah, I think it'd be great to just have a new string of adjectives preceding "Battle-Cars"

I would miss telling people the game's name.

That brain fart when they attempt repeating it: lol.
Showing them what it is: Priceless.

I dig Pie's idea, though. Battle-Cars can't go. How about just upgrading the rest?

That is the ideal situation but it holds the main flaw here, BC is the awkward part of SARPBC.. People cut that part off when they say it, it's always SARP or SARB, the BC kind of doesn't work unless you can end one set of letters with B and start another with C. For example STABCAR (lol), but that almost certainly won't work either as you'd want to end it with Battle-Cars really. It may not even be renameable to a point that Psyonix would be happy. Sadface.

So here's a bunch of random words, some dumber than others, that's how I always brainstorm:

Supersonic: Hypersonic, Lightspeed, Accelerated, Flash, Screamin', Velocious

Acrobatic: Agile, Nimble, Flying, Somersaulting, Majestic

Rocket: Missile, Torpedo, Boost, Thrust, Afterburner, Nuclear

Powered: Propelled, Supercharged, Fusion, Electro, Steam (lol steampunk Sarp)

Battle: War, Fight, Assault, Clash, Attack, Combat, Warfare, Carnage, Onslaught, Massacre

Cars: Vehicular, Ride, Motors, Buggies, RC?, -mobiles, Engines, Machines


So there are some words to inspire some thought on the subject anyway.. Example name: Hypersonic Thrust Soccer. Also we should maybe think about compound words, like Acro-car/Acrobaticar. Acrobatic was always the weak point in the name for me, acrobats aren't cool lol.

Accelerated Rocket-Soccer: Engage!

Maybe in on of the many updates we'll definitely get, eh? :P

With a sexy steaming heavy mechanical ball..

Water tanks instead of boost capsules, if you run out, that's it.

I'm so off-topic but I want this. :shock:

I like Hypersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. It clearly sounds like an upgrade to the original (five times faster!), stays true to the original name while being easily distinguishable (the first word is different), AND its acronym is HARP.
