Team Name Suggestions

Postby Overwatch » Tue Nov 15, 2011 3:03 am

Motto: "Try as they may, none can hide"
Weapon: Particle Beam Rifle
Hi everyone, I joined the site about a week ago and have been playing Heavy Metal War. I have currently have 5 characters in my team and will expand it to the maximum number eventually. Sadly though, I have been unable to come up with a name that embodies my team. So, as the name of the thread suggests, I am asking you all for some suggestions. Also, if it helps, my team are decepticons.

...So suggest away.

Overwatch, welcome to the game!
Firstly, good choice of faction. Secondly, what's the concept behind your team? It'll make it easier to help you choose a name if we know what sort of team you have.

Loyal Soldiers of Megatron/Galvatron/Thunderwing/etc.?
Decepticon Elite Special Forces?
Escaped Prisoners?
Autobots who have turned to evil because good is dumb?
Pizza Delivery Seekers?
Demon-worshipping Playboy Industrialists... oh wait - that's me. :twisted:


Drop us a link to your team (In the registry, if you click the link that says 'View Team' and copy the URL here...) and the suggestion will flow like scraplets.

I can't help but think there is a story behind Burn's suggestion, I noticed 2 teams in the high scores table going by this name and I believe one of them was his team.

Thanks for the welcome Psychout. The team would fall under Loyal Soldiers of Megatron I guess. I'd like to think the idea behind the team is that they are a group of decepticons, who join Megatron's uprising (fight the system type of thing) and whose function is similar to Delta Squad from Gears of War. Must say though, your concept is quite cool.

...or be like Absolute Zero!

Anyhow, you provided the right link for your team. BTW, not a critique, but why just 5 characters, and not the maximum of 12? Or even 6, so you can put them all into a mission?

For more background into the game, into the people playing this game and for a lot of excellent advice about stats, upgrades and leveling, be sure to browse around the topics in this forum.

As for a team-name, just use something that you think sounds cool or intimidating or just fun!
I'm so meta, even this acronym...

Yes.. Yes.... This may change however:

420,575 to my goal
1,104,764 to AZ's goal.

At this rate I should change my team name to the Converters and start collecting Energon from AD.

I was holding off on making a the other 7 characters when I was low on energon. Now that I have a decent amount, I will be creating them (once I think up some names, concepts, etc)

For more background into the game, into the people playing this game and for a lot of excellent advice about stats, upgrades and leveling, be sure to browse around the topics in this forum.


I have read a few already, I read _Anshin_'s stories/story-based competition (read the first few lines of the newest chapter and decided to go back and find the 1st, it is a well written story). Just finished reading the first few pages of an autobot saviour thread. Burn's first suggestion now makes a bit more sense.

Phaze will explain all through the medium of profanity when he eventually reads my posts, as will any other Brit here who is classed as a 'Sountherner'.

Why would profanity be required to explain the deficiencies of those from the north when they're clearly evident? >:oP

I think it has something to do with either french moving into the south, or their heritage being from france, from all the invasions. If that was the case though, I'm sure france could claim northern france as england if they wanted.
