Unit Names

Recommended Posts

What are the odds we'll see changes to the unit names? Not counting Commanders, we have 10 units available. Of those 10, 3 have "crawler" in the name and 3 are "[noun]ed [verb]ers" (plus a fourth "[noun]ed [noun]"), including two different "[noun]ed Crawlers".

Far from the end of the world, of course, but I'd rather see more "Yarazi" and "Karkinoi" style names.

I don't mind the ...ers... it seems to fit a lot of them.

That said Karkinoi is cool!  comes from here I believe Karkinoi is the plural:

Also, they're used in D&D

Whelks are also awesome as they're based off a real animal!  It's the mighty sea snail!  Google it!

No idea what Yarazi are... If anyone could track those down that would be awesome!

Karkinoi and Yarazi feel like they might be their proper names, like what Stormsiren would call them.  Barbed Creepers and Spotted Skulkers and the like seem like they are what the British soldiers dubbed them.
