We are on a ship, and we will all be heroes of some kind, why not just call these groups a "Crew" or maybe a "Squad"?

The dev team is flexible. It kind of depends on what the community wants.

I think Super Group is hardwired into my brain from 8 years of CoH. But, I kinda like Hero Group (HG). Simple, and focusing more on our heroism than our superpowers. Just spit-balling...

Hero Group (HG) also goes very well with Heroic Games. :)

Very true...I didn't even make that connection! Maximum branding! 8-)

Even in other games I tend to call alliances or guilds SG's. so Supergroup

'Supergroup' also works for both hero and villain groups (when or if villains are ever introduced).

I feel like Super Group is iconic. It says something without having to explain it to most. I prefer it. But there was an alternative that was brought up many moons ago. I think Eulb mentioned HSG as in Hero Ship Group in a similar discussion. It seems like VSG would work equally well. Both flow of the tongue easily. Maybe I’m just nostalgic for the good old SG. But I could live with HSG and VSG too. But I don’t feel that there’s a true risk of violating an owned IP here. Perhaps I’ve missed some points made in other discussions during my sabbatical from these forums as to why we need to change the title or is it just the desire to make the term exclusive to SoH?

I believe the question came up because it was about the old word (which I prefer myself) is linked to the new game (so new game new name).

To the topic : I still think we should keep in mind that the name should work for any kind of type -
for those who want to have a military flair,
for those who want to have some elite ring,
for those who are maybe cosmic or magical themed,
for those who want to be like a hobby team ;)
and of course also for those who want to be darker - maybe anti-hero-like
And actually I don´t think we need to remind anybody with anything all the time that we are on a ship.
Its part of the lore but thats it as I think
So lets stick with Supergroup :D

Super Group is used with Champions Online.

There's the movie, Justice League.

Why can't we be a?

"HERO LEAGUE"


Anything that says, "Hero" not super. Not that our characters aren't super, but it is so over-used.

And since this is on a ship.

"Ship Hero Group"

I think we shouldn’t change some things just for the sake of change. Supergroup has been utilized for quite some time between several different MMO’s. We have quite a few people already upset with us for saying “ship” of heroes. Changing the name of something as fundamental as ‘supergroup’ might upset a few more people as well. Let it remain supergroup.

Like I mentioned earlier - I don´t think we need to push everyone into noticing, that we are on a ship - and since the term will also be used when eventuallay we will have villains, the word hero would force us to change the term for them (Villain League?) already and somehow I feel it does sound strange to be honest.
And I think something being used a lot or for a while does not necessarily make it over-used. That would be more the case if people cannot hear it anymore. But just because something is being used at other areas too... .
Just to reflect the point - the word hero is over-used too - They use it since millenia and in thousands of movies, books, comics and games (if not millions) still we are willing to use it ;)

Upon review, and time to ponder. It seems, that Super Group is the best TITLE for a "Guild" "Clan" etc. for a Super Hero/Villain mmorpg.

I cast my VOTE for:

Super Group
