If I hover over something and its name is displayed, that's what I'm calling it.

I hate when cheeky bastards go "Whats a crusher?"

I either just call it the Hive mind, queen, or Matriarch as one other dude in this thread calls it.

Calling them X-rays is way cooler. I'm gonna rotate between starship troopers bugs and x-com X-rays from now on, unless it's something funny like the big bitch

"Space Jamaicans"
"Reggae dancers"

All of these need to be nuked from orbit.

I don't mind "Dogs", "Lizards", "bugs", "Queen", "Screecher".

When will there be rule that calling Preds anything related to Jamaicans or Rasta culture removes grief protection?
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

A slightly irrelevant thing, but i noticed that some people STILL confuse a Praetorian with the Queen, and its cringeworthy.

God-dammit learn your differences, the text says its a prae, its crest is REALLY visibly different, and you can hover it and it says "Praetorian"

Nothing more exciting than somebody yelling "SCREECHER DOWN", then you run up and find out its a Praetorian, but its too late, the entire marine force charged in, confident that nothing can stop them, and then the REAL QUEEN comes in and destroys them in less than 10 seconds.

Also yeah i still call them Queen or Screecher, they both fit.

This is a small theory of mine. I like to think that the only three real/accurate names for the xenos are the Queens, the Drones and the Larvas. Everything else is just what a marine would call them. Like "oh shit, it just shot gas that husked that guy and melted straight through that barricade! Some kind of... BOILER?!" or "Oh shit, it runs fast as fuck,some kind of creature, a fucking runner!"

doesn't work so well with sents and praes but *shrug*

In a nutshell, whenever I see that the queen went dead, my char will would rather say "Large thing dead!", "Big guy down!", or something like "Bigass screaming thing dead!".
Same goes with other things, I don't usually call them by name, since ICly, I don't know their name at all. So I usually call boilers as "Boomy Acid thingy" (rarely), Ravagers as "Big Reds" or "Momma doggies", and so on and so forth. Unless if I somehow know this by someone else or I'm just a researcher (Which is never going to happen).
