[-] GW numbers
« on: March 29, 2019, 07:45:50 AM »
Due to the long duration of gameworlds (up to almost 2 years!) and the significant time they consume in our everyday life, I would propose a change of the game world-numbering.

Instead of using GW1 to GW4 constantly, I would propose a number sequence rising. So after a gamewold ends, the number is being retired. So the next starting gameworld would be GW5, and after that GW6... etc.

Why? Well... it will certainly make life easier when explaining our future grandchildren stories. Imagine this:

DD: You know, in GW2 I had a fleet of 500 Boeing 727-100!
Grandchild: I dont believe you!  >:( I was in GW2 and you just had those lame Tridents!
DD: Oh, no, i meant another GW2 before that.
Grandchild: The one from 2048 to 2050?
DD: No, the one from 2019 to 2020.

How easy would that be, if we could just say:

DD: You know, in GW17 I had a fleet of 500 Boeing 727-100!
Grandchild: Amazing!  ;D Thats awesome. I am planning to get a few in GW46 now too!

Once upon a time, another text based online MMO called OGame (OCrack) used to use numbering for each of it's game world's or universes.

However, after a while, they ended up needing to swap from a number based system to an A-Z based system, ie each world had a name beginning with the next letter of the alphabet.

Problem you have is eventually the numbers will reach 3 digits, and they become just as anonymous as the current system.

I don't like the new numbering either.  There used to be, for example Modern Times 5, Modern Times 6 etc, before the game numbering was changed....

Have already a plan to do some game renaming soon.
