People in Russia are called Russians, those in France are French, and people from America are Americans; but what should people in Dual Universe be called?

"Dual Universians" is kind of immersion-breaking, since it is nothing other than the title of the game itself.

So, what do you think?

If you have any suggestions other than what is on the poll, please feel free to suggest them!
I will try to keep up with this and post any other REASONABLE options on the poll. I will not be putting up anything I think is offensive, or if it is just pointless. (like: "name-of-my-organization"-ites, or "I-like-space"-ers.)

Other than that, let's hear your thoughts!

(By the way, you can select more than one option in the poll. :) )

Why? There's no need for that, each community/organization will call themselves and others as they please.

Of course people will call themselves and others what they wish, Shynras. This is meant as a "community brainstorm" for a generalized reference. Nothing is stopping you from referring to yourself as part of an organization or community, I am just trying to see what others think is a good name to refer to players as "in general".

If you feel that this is a pointless thread, feel free to ignore that it exists, I won't be offended. :)

I know people will call them selves Citizen of whatever org they are in but as a collective term i like Colonist or something like Arkian(s) because i believe coming from an Arkship comes before the Nov- in the name.


Who needs a signature anyways

Twerk suggested Arkers in the other thread.

I like both colonists and arkers.

And you shouldnt look at this question as coming up with an in game term. Its more in the sense of how to call a DU player outside of the game. ;)

Or, you know, just call everyone Boobians. It's the only name that has any worth in this community.  :D

Great comments fellas!

I like Pioneer too, Cybrex, but I'm not sure it is a term that would apply to everyone for long. After all, once Alioth is settled, the true pioneers will be those going out to explore the galaxy, while others will live comfortably behind the front lines.

Kurock, Aliothians is what those who live on Alioth will be called for sure! It doesn't really apply to everyone though. Same thing with "Earthers", it is a good name, just not quite as universal (pardon the pun) as what I am referring to. :)

Surprised that "Passengers" hasn't shown up yet.


Probably because we are only passengers until we get off the Arkship, after that....
It does have a nice ring to it though!

As falstaf said we might need an outside name or a general name instead of simply 'players'

Citizens, players, noobs. 

 

It is possible that players could mostly get their names from the organizations they join, with maybe 'Neutral' Players, Cinderfallians, Imperials, Unionists, etc.


May the wing under your wings bear you up where the sun sails and the moon walks.
