Brainstorming combine related names

Post by TankNut on Fri May 03, 2013 6:55 pm

Right, so I'm thinking about how we are going to run the combine factions. As we have the pill pack (Which should be working) we will need a whole lot of names.

And well, I'm not the most creative in the term of names relating to the combine, so I'm just going to post below what I have at the moment (Really simple stuff) and allow people to share their opinions about it.

Overwatch soldiers:
CMD-STORM.SqL-001 - Squad leader
CMD-STORM.TAC-002 - Your average run of the mill unit
CMD-STORM.TAC-003 - See above
CMD-STORM.TAC-004 - See above
CMD-STORM.SpT-005 - Supporting unit

Hunters:
CMD-SYN.HUNT-001

Synth Scanners:
CMD-SYN:AW.SCN-001

Hunter choppers:
CMD-NOMAD-001

Gunships:
CMD-SYN:AW.RAZOR-001

Dropships:
CMD-SYN:AW.BOOMER-001

Strider:
Nothing at all, probably won't be used anytime soon.

These are the ones that I am focusing on right now. And the ones that will see the most use.

Dropships - Confirmed Boomer FYI.

Gunships: NOMAD.

Hunter Chopper: GHOST, since that's a bit of a common name used even today.

I'm still not 100% on calling gunships NOMAD and hunter choppers GHOST. But BOOMER is pretty much confirmed then.

Yes the names are still terrible.

This thread isn't meant to be only about the names like NOMAD and VICE and such. It's also about the full names.

I honestly am terrible with these. I'll give it a try... Since Dropships and Gunships are synths... How about OTA-SYNTH.DRP-001 Or... OTA-SYNTH.GNS-001. We already had OTA names at Apex but they sounded quite dull. I was thinking 'STINGER' as a fast response style team (Similar to the old STORM), 'APEX' as some form of sniper team, and 'RAZOR' for building and engineering within the OTA.

could you explain what are the meanings of OTA Soldier ranks please? by putting a "-" after each of them. Also add a Strider tab.

Alright, you know OTA and you all know what it means.

But what about alternatives? What do you like? I'll name a few examples below.

OTF - Overwatch Transhuman Force
CMD - Overwatch Military Division
USF - Union Stabilization Force

EDIT: Forgot to credit Tony for these names, my bad!

OGSF and OGAF?

EDIT: To be honest I prefer CMD, as that's also the name that is printed on pretty much everything combine related.
Actually, that's CMB, any ideas on what that could stand for? (Could actually just be CoMBine)

I updated the OP a bit ago with some new names. Feel free to give feedback on them.

OSF - Overwatch Synthetical Force?

Would simplify it, make the name OSF.SYNTH NAME-ID

For example OSF.HUNTER-314

For now I've just gone with the current names as they are stated in the OP, I'm working on radio codes and a basic system for the time being.

Stiches' idea sounds good actually. Combine treats human soldiers the same as others, just weaker units used for diffrent purposes.

How about player manhacks? May be not needed. But say during the uprising, a high-up CPA deploys a manhack (OfC's carry them on their backs) then they can get the pill to turn into their manhack and not have the manhack attack the CPA.

A name could be..

CMD-STINGER-001

If anything, it would be CMD-VISCERATOR-001. I'll look into it later.

Derp, forgot they were VISCERATOR's. But it may need shortening. Like... CMD-VISC.-001
