    Or they can just change the material name to be more accurate :)

    Did you know the original ending for "The Emperor's New Clothes" have the royal court hang the kid for saying the emperor is naked and everyone continues to praise the new clothes as though they're there?
    It's not but if you don't look into it further after reading this, you might actually believe it.
    There are actually precursors to this story and it's actually fascinating.

    As noted, Cheetah's spots are a little inconsistent in the comics, and we went with what we thought was the very most cool. We won't change the material and I doubt we will change the name, either.

    Do you understand the difference between Misinformation and Disinformation, Megzilla?

    Sass me all you want since we've burned bridge anyway, you can't even do a correction like Blizzard did.

    I too express my disbelief in the wrong name.

    I vote the material be renamed to "Bob"

    You think you're being funny, but Bobcats still have patterns closer to cheetahs than leopards.
  11. Ryll Committed Player

    How dare you assume I was refering to bobcats. I was talking about the shortened name for "Robert".

    What happen to the short shorts? Was it in the summer or did I just miss it somewhere?
  14. Ryazan Dedicated Player

    Just change the material name.

    Do not keep the cheetahs sad.

    Look, Kat Percussion, they used weasle words. They said "inspired by Cheetah" ... and named the skin accordingly.
    If they had made spots, they would've been lambasted for a polkadot skin.
    It's pretty. It makes people happy. A kitteh should be happy to get a kitteh skin made available.

    Pretty is irrelevant. They didn't name it accordingly. People are following in the devs footsteps and calling it wrong. That's the whole issue.
    Answer this: If another game have faced this exact same issue before and can correct it, why does this game do the exact opposite of that?

    Of all the hills you want to make a stand on you choose this? Umm...

    Hey!! I named my RSK Bob. Don't you go taking his name in vein with this "obviously: horrific misnaming!!

    How about you ask the devs why of all the hills they choose to double down on an obviously wrong choice instead of just doing a name change?
  19. DeitySupreme Steadfast Player

    Because there is no need for it? They went with a design directly in the comics. Maybe it was leopard who wanted to be called a cheetah. Does it matter? If it bothers you that much you could just delete the material on day 21 so you never have to look at the atrocity on your toon.
  20. Catastrophic Repercussion Dedicated Player

    The pattern didn't originate from the comics. The pattern originated from real life animals.
    This isn't even a misnomer situation. It's just wrong, and using other wrong examples to justify it.
    Names matter.
