Default <Riot> and <Aftermath> are Horrible Guild Names

After taking a 5+ year break I come back to these 2 guilds being top dogs. The question is, who is responsible for coming up with these 2 names? I would perma ban them from the server. They don't belong here.

Riot is just pure laziness...sounds like you had a bunch of random guys just shout out random words and you picked one. Also, what are your rioting? The other neckbeards on the server for phat loot?

Aftermath sounds way too nerdy. The word math should never be used in a guild name, under any conditions. One word guild names should be banned as well. They just sounds so millennial (makes it feel that people don't have the time to think of something creative so they get lazy and pick a single random word).

At least put the word "the" in front of them. Doing this at least makes the name sound more epic (ie. "The Aftermath"). The Riot still sounds kindergarteny. Notice I just made that word up...at least it's something unique, unlike both of your names.

Guild names should be at minimum 2 words, preferably 3. TMO was an awesome name for example (they were the top dogs when I last played).

I recommend you guys /petition and change your guild's name to something more awesome and respectable. Freakin' Riot and Aftermath. Lame.

I.... agree.

Paradigm Shift was pretty neat, and so is Azure Guard.

Rest of the big guild names I can't stand.

Lol, yes. Only because I wasn't playing during when Kunark launched and missed out on firepot binding, so I bought another shaman bound at pots and sold my shaman (no need to have 2 shaman accounts).

The voting process for <Aftermath> was pretty gay and most of the poll names were terrible. Aftermath was actually one of the better options somehow. When you are looking over 75 names they all start to look corny TBH
