That is my second favourite title so far, after SARPBC 2.[/quote]

SocCar on the other hand is kind of weird, NA-centric (since it's only soccer here), and if we ever expanded into other game modes it might be unnecessarily restrictive.

Ideally, the name would:
- Quickly and simply communicate that it's a game about car "sports". If we expanded into other modes later those could fit under that umbrella.
- Have a decent acronym =p
- Be usable in a sentence without getting odd looks

Are you looking to go down the route of making it sound like an established sports body, like say, NBA? That I assume would make it a little more marketable in the US at least.. For example; Car Soccer Federation (CSF). This would be quite easy to make a recognisable logo for too. I guess you could give it a subtitle or something, CSF: LIVE! (lol), this also allows for it (CSF for example) being the umbrella so to speak. I don't think the word Supersonic fits very well into this kind of thing unfortunately, though. Again, if this was the case, we still have the issue of tying it in with the original in some way. Dare I say, perhaps a fresh slate?

The advantage of a small, hardcore community like you guys, in my opinion, is that we could name it "Kitten Petting Simulator 2014" and the whole community would know it was the sequel and try to play it. It's a luxury to have the option of changing the name and feel like the playerbase will be informed enough to know what's up regardless.

A "league name" like you mention would make a ton of sense both for accessibility and for overall branding, but we've yet to come up with a good name (World Battlecar League - WBL - was tossed around a bit a few years ago, but didn't gain much traction internally).

Isn't it like a cheat code for some game, like GTA or something?

It's the code to enable blood in Mortal Kombat. GTA was never released on a console with a "C" button :lol:

Cheers for the reply! At least this gives us some idea of what you might be going for ideas-generation-wise, so we can get on it! I say we, I forgot how non-constructive the internets are..

Come on guys! Any serious league names? I think it would be awesome if we had a hand in re-branding our favourite game (hence the topic lol).

P.S. If you made Supersonic Kitten Petting Simulator 2014, I'd buy it. I think the speed of the kittens would add to the challenge. Perhaps that for Kickstarter? That sounds like the kind of indie-game-jam game which gets funded all the time.. plus insta-Steam!

I will suggest two words that sound good together and resume the car fighting spirit of this game I think, Arena Car or Car Arena. We can mix this words and do Arena Car Football or Arena Car Soccer or Car Arena Rocked Soccer or something else who sounds better.

I like the use of the word arena. I would also like to suggest "sphere" since that all maps are spherical in shape.
