Yeah all the maps are spherical and closed, I think Arena imply rightly the spherical shape of the maps and means too Battle. "Sphere" is good but I think it will better in a kind of name to a Sarpbc2 ground. I think it will be desirable to find a word who also show that Sarpbc2 is multiplayer, team and funny, show this angle. And of course, the most important, a word who says that looks like football. Arena Car Fantasy Ball sounds cool but it's missed something, it's so imprecise, can much better.

I really don't think anyone's going to come up with a name to describe the game better than Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars that isn't too obvious and uninteresting (like Car Ball or Car Soccer/Football). If you look at the names of any other sports, they don't describe the game very well either. Football? Sure, you use your feet, and there's a ball, but that hardly explains the entire game. Baseball? Doesn't mention the primary skills of batting, pitching, and fielding. The most concise name for a sport that I can think of is NASCAR, and that's a six letter acronym.

"Car Soccer" or something similar isn't very concise because there have already been games that combine cars with soccer, and SARPBC doesn't play anything like them. What makes BC so much fun is that the cars don't behave like cars. They behave like supersonic, acrobatic, rocket-powered battle-cars. You can't really get any more concise than SARPBC because it describes all the primary functions of the thing that the player controls. It can go really fast (Supersonic), it can fly and move around in the air (Acrobatic), it uses high-power fuel to go faster and control flight (Rocket-Powered), and it can demolish other cars to bits (Battle-Cars). All of that is expressed in four words that can be simplified into a four letter acronym.

The biggest complaint about the current name is that it sounds like some kind of car-combat game, and while that may be true, it doesn't really matter. Everyone who plays the game found out about it in one of three ways: A friend/family member told them about it, they read a review about it online, or they saw it in the Playstation Store. In any of those cases they should have had a decent understanding of what Battle-Cars is before playing it. And even If for some reason someone's friend told them to check out this game but didn't tell me what it is, I imagine they would be much more likely to look into a game called Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars than a game called Car Ball.

NASCAR's actually an interesting example in that it's a long ass name like SARBPC but with a memorable, pronounceable acronym that has the word CAR in it

Corey's struggles with the current name only serve to emphasize my point 8-) Maybe SARB-PC should be the codename for the Alpha?

Does the name have to perfectly describe the premise of the game? Most games names just give an indication as to the general theme of the game, eg. Call of duty, World of Warcraft, Fallout, Mortal Kombat. I know it's probably different for indie game that most people will never have heard of before, or games with such an obscure premise as SARPBC. Perhaps you could use a name like Octane Soccer, or something.

I still think SocCar is the best choice imo. None of these ridiculous long names would work, serious or not

Psyonix could have "Battle-Cars" with the hyphen. I see no hyphen in that title.

That's not how it works. You can't just name a game Twisted-Metal or Donkey-Kong

Superbatic turbo-boosting battle-cars STBC

Or maybe you could try go down the e-sport road

So league of cars, or battle league?

Heck maybe even Rocket League?



People think assassin was the guy that called the name, but I looked through here carefully and saw that it was this guy.

I wonder if they every messaged him about it...
