Caldari ships (mostly) are named after birds and mythical creatures (sometimes even mythical birds).

You cannot name the Badger II the Tayra as a Tayra is neither, and therefore is breaking the theme naming.

Now not EVERY caldari ship fits this naming scheme, but the vast majority do. And you are making it even worse by adding another out of theme name.

Things are only impossible until they are not.

Oh man, I hope this is a troll. Of all the things to rage about.

If troll 5/10, sort of creative.

If not troll, please place tears in jar and be happy they are re-balancing whether or not they continue with or without naming convention.

Also, you realize a Tayra is sort of like a badger right? Or was that the troll?

I wasn't aware a Badger was a mythical creature, what part of the world do you come from that they are mythical creatures known only to you via far off and long forgotten by most legends.

The Badger isn't a bird or a mythical creature to begin with.

Just sayin.

They're said to eat lots of mushrooms, too.

How do you know that all the animals Caldari ships are named after aren't considered mythical in the post-gate New Eden? I imagine that when they have larps on Eve's planets they are dreaming of a magical fantasy world with such fantastical creatures as Ravens, Badgers, Kitsunes and Tayras.

Well, there's always this:

There are a couple of Caldari ship names that I do no like as they "break the mold". The Golem, for example. Also the Onyx. Neither are birds, neither are animals, one is a lump of quartz and the other is an uppity lump of clay!

What's next, the Cummingtonite? (Yes, it's a mineral.)

Badgers are getting nerfed. They are being culled and being given contraceptives:

I personally think Twinky would be a fitting name for a ship.

After all, it is now a mythical creature aswell.

The next Caldari ship needs to be a Panda then.

They're bound to be extinct and mythical by this time period.


EDIT: Plus it might get more WoW converts - let the Panda ship be a monk or maybe a shaman class.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.
