Great thread idea Loki!

And cool barracks ;) A lot of "-el" there on your namings! Somehow "Duriel" escaped you; you know, the insect-like boss in Diablo II.

Funny. My crew is almost IDENTICAL yours, except for these differences:
(1) I have 3RM and 2BM, where you got 2RM and 3BM
(2) I have only Rank-1 units :(
(3) My unit names are kinda Greek-sounding, whereas yours are kinda Jewish-sounding
(4) My kills are less, e.g., my top-one (a BM!) is at ~130.
(5) Don't have any special colorings :(

I'll post my Barracks when I get back from work.

Ok, so this is what the barracks might look like when you play too much :

My top killers are :
Tied for the lead are Hoth and Kodlak, at 279 kills each (sic)
Behind at 200+ are Lydia (BM) and Eorlund (WM)
I think about 10 more are over 100 kills...

Your barracks are definitely crowded! And I'm noting some Skyrim inspired names there, quite apt, if may comment (except for Mjoll the Lioness!:D)

I didn't upgrade anyone to r2 or r3 until prices fell to their current levels, and tend to spread the kills around pretty evenly. These guys have a lot of kills though: Beli @ 242, PangurBán @ 104.

The names are mostly either from Wikipedia, looking for Nordic and Irish stuff, or game devs so far. When I run out of names on those themes, I'll go to the endless pool of musicians I like. "Shitrig" and "Oxmantown" are my favorite names so far, but I look forward to naming a mender "Shamhat".

I don't have a large barrack but my highest kill count is Laimiro at 348, second highest is OlafSoul at 136. My current team is all over 50 kills though. Most of the names are anagrams of friends or legendary/renowned weapons that I smudged.

Here is my barracks:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/99633386/TBSF_MyCrew_20130501.jpg
(note the similarity to SeraphimLoki's? :D)

The names of my characters are basically Greek words, spelled/restyled in a fashion resembling Scandinavian writing. Nevertheless, the sonority is purely Greek. Here's their meanings:

Aetien = She-eagle
Yerakyn = She-falcon
Lavrah = Heat-wave
Photya = Fire
Lefkye = White
Dhontig = Tooth
Nichyil = Fang
Heremdyn = "Calm strength"
Spastyss = Breaker
Warraton = "Hit him!"
Norsmetl = "Norwegian Metalhead"
Trellos = Madman
Erethyss = Provoker (!)
Ntukyi = "Well-built"
Tzartzar = "Shover" (mostly used in football terms)
Gdoupos = "Thud"
Typhonas = Hurricane
Khopanos = Maul/Pestle
Ghermorr = Nickname of "Kolokotronis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolokotronis)" (a general of the 1821-revolution in Greece)
Palikarr = "Stout-hearted man"

I always pick name from random in-game names, sometimes I cycle through 10-20 before I find one I like.

I also like the in-game names, but I'm also quite into etymology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etymology), i.e. the meaning of words. I wish I could understand more about Scandinavian words, to apply "proper" names to my characters. Because of this, I find it easier to pick a Greek word and paraphrase it to make it sound like the in-game ones. If my keyboard supported those weird accents etc, I'd be sure to use a lot of them too! :D

@Aleo: Copy-pasteable accented letters: http://copypastecharacter.com/alphabetical-order Those should work, I think...

Thanks Frank, interesting & useful! I'll have to check if copy/paste works from the web-browser onto the TBSF naming UI. But then again, 10Renown for renaming is quite a lot, even more for consistency across my 20 characters :(

Did change names of 12 characters, was crying like a baby, but it was worth it:O.

You got more RMs than BBs?!? From your streams, I'd have guessed you'd have like 9x BBs :D

The lvl 0 are waiting with 5 or more kills for their promotion, to whatever is needed.

I will eventually have 2 of every level.. then they will release new classes and I shall bang my head many times upon the wall. xD

I am posting an updated version of my barracks....

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/99633386/TBSF_MyCrew_June2013.jpg

You can definitely see where this is going: 1 unit of each type of each rank. No more barrack lines are needed for this quest! I am currently playing builds with no-two same units (well except those two RMs, sometimes, :rolleyes:), but, even so, at p12 I can still combine Rank1+Rank3 units of the same type. I am gonna color them too, with ranks 1/2/3 getting each of the three available color-variations.

Only thing I'm sort on is ~2800 Renown (!), which would take me ~280 matches to earn, i.e. another 3-4 months of play, at my rate... And just when I get there, the Saga will be launched :cool:

Some funny names there AP :) -- "Tiny" (WM), "Ender" (SM), "Fukuf" (PK), "Aiiiieeee" (BM), "The Dude" (RM).

:) Thanks. I just made the underlying connection of:
4 unit classes ==> 4 lines per barracks-page,
9 slots per-line ==> 3 units per-class x 3 ranks per-unit

However, I'm seriously screwed when the 4th unit-type (per class) appears :p Hopefully, the barracks UI will make some accommodations to make those numbers commensurate. Perhaps 12 slots per line?

Butters

Maybe the (supposedly incoming) sorting options would be enough to deal with that. 12 units per line could be a bit bloated. Maybe have a list with "categories" (by base classes) ? That means get rid of the empty squares and add a "barracks capacity 32/41" type of display somewhere on the PG screen. Maybe make the categories collapsible for easier navigation.

Maybe in the future they can explore a different Proving Ground UI/presentation. Make things even more stream lined. For example when there are a plethora of other units they could do it card/deck style, where you go have something like a wheel/selector for class/advanced class first (like you scroll through the unit portraits), then once you've selected it expands to the roster of your units you have for that class. So you could theoretically have a regiment per class to fit the 3ranks x 3 class limit, per unit

... when there are a plethora of other units ...

Oh, the promises! :) Let the units come and everything will fit in nicely! :cool:
