First of all – a big welcome to all of our NA players into our newest NA server! Our team worked through the night to bring it live relatively quickly and smoothly in time for our players to hop during the afternoon and evening. We are monitoring any issues players are experiencing as they continue to merge, and you can leave feedback in this thread: http://forums.gamers...merge-feedback/

 

Why Union?

 

Several weeks ago, we ran a poll to gather suggestions for possible names for new servers on each platform (PC/PS4/X1). We take your input very seriously – in fact, Citadel was largely chosen because of its popularity among EU voters. That said, we factor these suggestions as part of our overall decision-making process. At the end of the day, we have to make sure the server name fits within the APB world, makes sense from a design perspective, and of course takes player input into account.

 

Many of you have been vocal about the name ‘Union’ that was chosen for the new server, and are disappointed that some other requested names were not chosen instead. So why did we decide to go with that instead of other popular suggestions?

 

We did receive write-in votes for ‘Union’, and after a lot of debate felt that it was a stronger choice based on the previously mentioned criteria than the other pre-selected names. We hoped that you would have agreed, but clearly we got it wrong. Sorry about that.

 

Can we call it something else?

 

The runner-up names to ‘Citadel’ were ‘Jericho’, ‘Agrotech’ and ‘Somatic’ across all platforms, and the idea was to save these names for the upcoming PS4 and X1 versions. However – considering your feedback we want to let you decide which of these names to claim in a finalist voting round. Or, for the players for whom ‘Union’ is growing on we can simply stick with the current name. So whatever your preference, cast your vote here by Sunday 6/7, 11:59 PM PDT: https://www.surveygi...r-Merge-Re-vote

 

But ‘Joker’ must live on!

 

There are some vocal Joker players that would prefer to see the ‘Joker’ server name live on. Ultimately, every new server in the history of APB has received a new name and it’s important to carry that on to give each world a chance to form its own distinct identity. However – we know how important your original server names are to you and will let you preserve them. Starting this week we will be sending out the first set of early-bird merge rewards that include exclusive character titles with your original server name. Wear these Trailblazer titles proudly to display the birthplace of your character!

 

So welcome again to the new NA server! We look forward to hearing your feedback in the coming week and will announce the new (or existing) name afterward. Please use the link above to vote - while you are free to discuss in this thread, only poll results will be considered.

I dislike the others tbh. Alot of us were hoping for Venom. If I had to choose between agrotech and whatever... I guess just keep it Union, I can make hundreds of jokes with that name, its even starting to grow on me. Plus, makes sense I guess... Colby and Joker united...Union..heh.

Calling our server Venom makes us look like a server of edgy teenagers. 

 

The new list is nice though, thanks RP :3

 

 

Still wish we could vote for TastyBurger... but Somatic or Agrotech is cool too :3

Jobs, you can tell nobody voted for Union because nobody mentioned about voting for it. You're lying to us.

And you can buy the " Joker " title for 150 joker tickets I think.

Its funny too because they've never quite replaced me. They just keep recycling my work 8)

Why did you pull Venom off the list? Why are you guys trolling us so hard right now? We want Venom.

 

All of the other names suck. Taco is a better name than most of them. Even Potato or Fruity McGee.

Because Colby is cheesy.

 

Also not voting until you take off the troll picks like Union and put the other ones like Venom back on.

 

Or just rename it Onion and let us move on.

I don't get what's so bad about "Union"?

I thought it was fitting for the US server.

Joker title will probably be the only thing I will use soon.

 

 

And Jericho reminds me of an interesting television show I watched... So...

It's corny and doesn't fit the players who make up Jolby. It should either be funny or way too serious but not corny and patriotic.

 

What the hell does patriotism have to do with the death and destruction we cause in this game? Nada.

 

And the cars and gun names are even worse than Union I mean at least calling it Onion is funny.

You know, all that's going to happen, is the lovely EU players will look at this, and go "Hey, We're going to vote Union, it sounds lovely."

 

In this angry game of trolls, putting that as an option is just asking for it, lol.

The runner-up names to ‘Citadel’ were ‘Jericho’, ‘Agrotech’ and ‘Somatic’

Did you mean Union, or why would you use the Citadel runner ups and not the Union ones? o_O

I don't know how much people liked or disliked Union, but what bothered me (and likely alot of others) were that it was an unlikely name for alot of people to coincidentally vote on together, and particularly that it would get more votes than any of the preset ones, without any talk about it prior to the voting, and nobody admitted to voting on it afterwards.

It would be nice to see the amount of votes each of the names got, or just a percentage for each of the top five names.

Maybe the poll results weren't very strong.  It's interesting to me so many are interested in the name Venom, that is my least favorite of the official ones.  Regardless, I am happy for an official revote though I'd prefer that Union NOT stick just because it will always be Onion.
