  • City names with attitude

    I am on the quest of collecting fun city names. Those of you who play lots of MP gimmie some good names you remeber.

    My fav so far is "Bag's End" I love that!

    My favorites are the ones that people are starting to use in MP games. When two settlers meet, and you get to lay your city down first, taking advantage of those whales or fishes...
    "Screw You" or "Beat You" or "Ha Ha"
    (Last time I used Ha Ha, somebody then built "Ho Ho, and "Heh Heh" right next to it)

      I wonder if anyone ever named a city after Fenway park with the great wall....

        I have to admit that renaming a city Fenway Park, when it builds the Great Wall is inspired!

        However, for utter consistency to a theme, I would have to give the award to Vlad and the Vampires on Acid tribe. Some are generally ghoulish ("Bloody Nipple"); others are specific to their opponents (Owl's Death). I have to give credit to whomever plays as "Lord of the Ferrets" for using "Ferret" so often in city names.

          My favorite is the old put the wonder in parenthesis after the city name city - so it shows up in the diplomacy screen as:

          Moscow (building Manhatten Project)
          Be the bid!

              People somtimes name cities for what they do, science city, Production city stuff like that. Although this is a terrible idea in multiplayer it shows how names can be used strategicly.

              **ROTFLMAO** That's like painting a big red bulls-eye on your city, especially in MP. Definitely not good in MP ... but if people out there actually do that, more power to ME!!!! Makes the job of tracking down key cities easier .

                Before spies come along - if you spend a diplomat investigating a city, you can rename the place after his findings - so you don't forget. For example: 3M/NCF is Three Musketeers and no coastal fortress!

                      Hmmm...my most recent trend in city-naming in mp has been to spell out Homer's "Iliad", word by word, in ancient Greek, but that seems to be bad luck, since I never got past Book I.

                      In sp I used to play as the souix or aztec and name cities insulting parodies of the original names, but, sadly, they aren't printable...

                      How about a new strategy for mp-play: use each city name to insult your opponent/opponent's tribe...then, as you lose, watch the city names slowly change, one by one...

                        In one game I was trying to hide where my capital city was, so i renamed two of my cities as NONE(Capital). Then moved my capital to one of those cities.

                          For the Warlord of the lawyers army "Come to Judgement" maybe, or, "Injuncted" (for a mountain city perhaps)?

                          Any use to you? I might release my copyright - for a modest fee, of course. (One good MP tip apiece will do).

                          I've been thinking of trying MP and this thread may provide the incentive I need to do it.

                            Xin Yu still did it best. We were in a MP game, on different sides of an alliance, and we were looking for each others cities.

                            He had found my farthest outpost, but I hadn't found his yet. He renamed all his cities close to me "Boston", the same name as the city I had closest to him... Every time I went to check to see if my exploring units were still closer to my city... sure enough, it always said they were closest to Boston

                            Xin is the master

                              Sounds like a good time. Whenever I take over a city I rename it "Anal(old city name." So if I take Boston it would be changed to Anal Boston. Made me laugh when it said Anal Boston build a granary. Naming cities for whatr they do makes things easier for me. Like "mountain post" that way you don't start building things they don't need.
