    I can foresee confusion in the future regarding the new War for Cybertron. I've seen people already calling characters in this series "Cybertron Prime", "Cybertron Ironhide", etc... To me this is just unacceptable, and will no doubt become quite the headache in years to come, as it is too easily confused with "Transformers:Cybertron" (2005).

    We already know that fan titles are nothing new. For example:

    Beast Wars = BW
    Robots in Disguise = RiD
    Titanium = Tit (snickers childishly)
    The War Within = WW or TWW

    Now I pose a question to you all. How should we resolve this potentially confusing situation?

    What should be the official fan title for "War for Cybertron"?



    I for one recommend the method of simply entitling everything from this line 'War...', for example:

    War Prime
    War Starscream
    War Magnus
    War Trypticon



    discuss.

    That's not much of a problem seeing how people are already saying WFC.

    Dude, WFC is about as "official" as you get. Plus, when someone makes up an official title, nobody really uses it.

    WfC has been working out quite fine, and most, if not all, people on here seem to understand what it stands for. No need for an "official fan title", when we've already got something that works, and coincides with all previous TF series (G1, G2, BW, BM, RID, Ar, En, Cy, An). If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    WFC, as everybody has been calling it. What's wrong with that?

    just for the sake of argument, suppose one is speaking verbally about the line. It would take a little less time to say 'wfc' instead of 'war'. 5 syllables instead of 1. du-bul-yu-eph-see. plus war sounds a tad cooler.

    Is it really official if it's a fan term? Is it a fan term if it's official? They call them fingers, but have you ever seen them fing?

    :crazy: 

    1. 99% of your WFC discussions will be written. Online. I hope you don't expect discussing this game with your group of friends for all eternity..but go ahead, call it 'War'. :) 
    2. It's not that hard to spell out three letters. Really. And when you're already on the subject of 'WFC', why would you have to keep adding a prefix to characters when naming them?
    3. War doesn't sound cool, and if you want it to sound cool I think you picked the wrong hobby.

    If you want to call it War, or whatever..feel free to do so, of course. :)  But what the hell are we talking about again?...

    when we first heard about this game I wanted people to call it TFW:FC then just TFW for TransFormers War. they could have used it for every following series too. for example if they remade BW in this inverse it could be called TFW:BW. TransFormers War : Beast Wars.

    It makes the TFW site that much more official. and it would provide a decent way keep this new universe connected and separated form every other TF universe.
