I think each person should be limited to one suggestion each tbh, but I'm going for The Paragon and The Renegade.
I'm stressing way too hard about what to put here, so I'm just gonna leave it blank.... or....

Just name them after the major dev of the update as compensation for their gud wurk~
CM was obviously inspired by Starcraft: Ghost opening. At least when marines takes too long to deploy.

As much as I like Bill Paxton and John Hurt, I'd rather not name it after them. It's a little too stern and I'd rather not be reminded of their deaths each time I play CM.

CM is, in general, fairly serious, but we have our moments of silliness, vulgarity and excessiveness. I'd really prefer not to muddle that in with something as meaningful as a memorial. It can (and will) look pretty bad, because the dropships are basically a slaughterhouse.


That being said (sorry if I got so serious), my two names are Lone-star (Green, with a Texan flag emblem) and Thunderbolt (Blue, with a lightning bolt emblem).

Hey! I understand you... I thought it would be honorable and to pay with respects. But yeah...

Aside from this I think the dropship should be renamed to a major dev in Pre Alpha such as Infernas and Joshua... these guys were a very polite devs back then.

I'm honored by that request :angel:

I'm too much of an eccentric boywad to really deserve a tribute though.

I do like these names a lot, and he makes a good point. Now that we have the memorial room we could have it say, "Among the warriors two names stick out, Bill Paxton and John Hurt."

Exactly. That's a much better way to pay tribute (if that is our intention) in my opinion. It's just much more appropriate.

I hadn't thought of that until you said that. And personally, I really like the gardens. Its an appropriate place for it.

Dante and Vergilius
Ares and Athena
Neptune and Theta

Only names I could think of that had some symbolism to them, and in an OOC sense, it highlights our first 2 Alpha Edition maps/game modes; Shiva's Snowball (an Arctic colony with a blue color theme) and LV-426 Lazarus (a mostly green, jungle setting). Plus the Rasputin is a gunship and is much larger (Ares was superior to Athena, in certain aspects; and he's the God of War, and Athena is the Goddess of Strategy, Knowledge, and Wisdom)
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.

I am John "Buckshot" Rhodes, the Tactical Snowflake Hunter

Sorry to dump more than one on you, but I've been thinking about it, actually, and I've come up with a few;

Sturm (und) Drang
Ebony and Ivory
Thelma and Louise

The first is from a German literature movement, they mean "Storm" and "Stress", respectively.
The second, just from the song, because who doesn't love old culture references.
The third is from the movie, which, fittingly enough, RIdley Scott directed.
When the voice from the shadows calls you
When the wind whips past your ears
Will you stand when the weight is upon you
Or will you go to your knees in fear?

I'll probably be cutting a bunch of these suggested names to get a smaller voting topic.
