Who came up with these forum names?
Commandos Legacy? Sounds crippy...
Why wasn't it called the Commandos saga? OR the commandos thrillogy?

Yeah I agree, Commandos Legacy doesn't sounds right. I think Commandos would have been a better name for the old Commandos games, but in little text below, it could say something like "This forum is dedicated to discussion of Commandos BEL and Commandos BCD"

This is possible, to change the name I mean. Only we need some kind of agreement on this. Change the name and somebody else won't like it.

Well, all we have to do is baby steps.
Firstly if we agree on the "we want a new name for the forums".
That's what the poll up there is all about.
Secondly we make a thread with suggestions.
A poll.
A change in the names.

I think it's a great name, but there is a "but" about it, It's a matter of getting used to it. :(

Well, if we CAN change the name of the forums, as previously suggested let's start the name giving.
I propose:
a. Commandos Saga
b. Commandos thrillogy
c. Commandos original Universe.

yeah commandos could become our religion.

our church is the barracks and our bible is the field manual or commandos manual for those who own a copied version of the game

I will say the same thing at commandos what I said about FF7

Commandos isnt game, its lifestyle:cool:

Actually Legacy gives the Commandos serie a godlike value + it bears the BEL & BCD spirit under its name. :D

What if we shake all the new names into a pot and stir it until it's ready then pour it on the thinking table to see what comes out of it. "Centenial Commandos"

Hey Nel! :cool: I like the new name "Red Mage" I guess we lost all of are post count from the old ones even if we kept the name.

If they change it to commandos renegade westwood will sue them. :D

Why not just Behind enemy lines and Beyond the Call of Duty etc, not these weird names that got nothing to do with the games.

It's got to be something spontaneous and extraordinary. BEL and BTCOD is something old, already used and should be disregarded as a contender...

Iakovos:)

PS. How about Commandos to infinity and beyond... :D

Well, it should be a name we have seen before, not something nobody ever linked to commandos before.

According to you then the "Commandos Legacy" name is something we have all seen before?

No, it's 1 of the names that was never linked to commandos before, a new name would be great but it should have something familiar that reminds you of commandos.

I don't think they'll allow creative names such as "Commandos to infinity and beyond". It isn't directly assosiated with Commandos BEL and BTCOD while it SHOULD.
Also, "Commandos Saga" is not really a good name cuz saga is in my understanding, something that involves deep storyline (over multiple episodes). Commandos don't.

Personally, I think that Legacy is pretty good name.

Other original ideas: :rolleyes:

Commandos
Commandos Original
Commandos BEL & BTCOD

Well, I do not see any connection between Commandos Legacy with commandos.
It sounds more like something of the past.
The "Commandos Making history" sounds more pleasant and accurate.

Can't they just use the name of the games? That way everybody can be happy and it will stop new people with bad eyesight to post in the wrong forums.

The idea of having new names is actually that... to have NEW names.

Well, these names they got noware new, just giving the forums the names of the games that they belong too makes more sense than this.

iakovos

It's not us, the forum users that decided on the above names. Your suggestion is an old one nevertheless.
