Why do you exactly choose THAT name?

Read this befor go on reading:
this thread is not supposed to push down other servers, im jus wondering....

Its now my 70min school break and im looking through the server lists of RMS
and i saw that many servers with all kinds of name....

I always thought you choose a name because it fits the server and that you can see ingame why the server is called like that  ???

i mean Oo look at my server

Ecchi-RO (old name Porn-RO  ::) )

Explanation of the word Ecchi-Ro

we have choosen our name because we have 2 clients, one client got the normal ragnarok style and the second client got the special style where all classes are going to be naked (note: ONLY naked and nothing more).

and now i saw servers like....

Legend RO => whats so legendary about that server? normal server, with normal features, nothing what could be legendary

System Ro => whats the system there Oo every game got a system right?

Yggdrasil Online => lol when i saw this name i imagined everyone running around wiht yggdrasil style or maintown in yggdrasil place *could be a nice idea*

FeelRO => i thought: "WTF how can you feel that?" are they giving you electroshocks when a monster kills ya?

nja there are much more names which  have often no sense

like TaROt, MouRo, JustRo, Also-Ro, Chaos-Ro, Shining Ragnarok Online, Noob Fury Ro, Rated Ro

i really wonder why they have choosen that name ~~ i would never choose a name just for fun or just because it sounds nice...
only Names where players can say like in my server "thats really ecchi (sexy, hentai etc bla bla) here"

what do you think why they choose their names?

Sadly it is quite apparent that -most- server owners do not really put any thought into what their servers name is, and just go with something that sounds cool.

Most names aren't even unique anymore and are used over and over again (Chaos, Dark and generally any name that has anything to do with evilness or implied satanism).

Basically, admins / owners want people to look at their name and say "OH EM GEE! THAT SOUNDS SOO COOL" and not question what the story behind the name is.


yeah but what....

lets take an Emo for excample *rofl* want to play ChaosRo or DarkRo Oo and then he see no chaos or nothing dark

i mean i would expect from ChaosRo a story of chaos and explosions.... like burned prontera style, everything burned, burned grass, bloody water

and in darkro for excample only night, everything in dark colors ~~

kind of a mean thing calling something chocolate candy when there is no chocolate in at all T_T

You have to remember, though, not every name is going to have a solid-in-your-face-this-is-what-it-means name. You have to think hard with some names, because some servers use the name as theoretical symbols. I've come across a lot of servers who's names don't stand for a certain theme, but for a certain meaning, which in all honesty, seems a lot more promising than a server with a set theme.

You can't always look at things skin-deep.

I agree some names make no sense at all, might as well call it wtfRO xD

For our server we had a huge brainstorming session, I wanted to call the server LoveRO, wanting to make a cute server that would appeal to girls a lot or romantic people in general, there was gonna be cute little love porings and matchmaking npc, custom wedding, etc.... sadly the starting team (all real life friends) was composed of myself (girl), another girl and 4 guys, and the guys didn't like the idea at all, so that idea was quickly brought down T_T

After 2 weeks of discussion that was going nowhere, we finally agreed upon heRO wanting to explore the "heroic" theme, even if it's kinda common in most rpg. I brought forth the Allegiance Light VS Dark system and how we would make the server storyline revolve around that and finally we all agreed. So all in all I think our name fits our server even if the concept is perhaps simple ^_^
