Super ZAM name [POLL]! 1 of 3Follow

Ok, so based on THESE THREE POLLS, these seem to be the top three choices. But having 3 choices seems to always beg the question 'what if' it was only 2 of them. So what if it was a run-off between the 3? If one name wins both of its polls it's a clear winner, and if it ends in a rock, paper, scissor tie maybe we can analyze just how close it is.

Please vote in all 3! That way even if your top name isn't chosen, your voice will be heard no matter what.

(The) Kraken Club or ZAM
(The) Kraken Club :31 (48.4%)
ZAM :33 (51.6%)
Total:64





Poll 1: http://ffxiv.zam.com/forum.html?forum=152&mid=137720105128083762
Poll 2: http://ffxiv.zam.com/forum.html?forum=152&mid=1377201377287985033
Poll 3: http://ffxiv.zam.com/forum.html?forum=152&mid=1377201399288196847

I was trying to put 3 polls into one post, then that didn't work so I made a second post, and it kicked that back too. I'll make a part 2 and 3 in a second.

Which 4th choice? Allakhazam and Knights of ZAM are close in the one poll, but then Allazhzam gets trounced in the 3 way poll. But because Kraken and ZAM are dead even in that poll, and ZAM and Karma are basically even in the other, I figured those were the top 3 for any run off. Since ZAM and Kraken are dead even, it would be hard to decide what should run against Karma, hence the 3 way poll.

Shouldn't it be "The Kraken Club" rather than "Kraken Club"?

Hmm.. I agree, I think it should, but so far all the polls have listed it just as "Kraken Club" so I wanted to keep it true to the others. I suppose it could be another discussion if it wins.

Indeed. I think "The Kraken Club" has a certain je ne sais quoi.

I really hope Kraken Club pulls it out. I mean, we already have the website ZAM, I just hope we get something different for an FC.

And since it's a FC we can have ZAM be the identifier no matter what we choose. I am also hopeful for KC. It's a Club. For Krakens.

I do too, it's what I voted for initially. ZAM just seems so boring to me, no offense mods! Great name for a website, just kinda lacking that flair for a FC. I like my FC's with FLAIR!

I hope the same.

After some thinking, I'm not sure if a ZAM related name is the best way to go. Not everyone in the LS was a ZAM user. Heck, I would be surprised if half the members were ZAM users. If anything, it should be called ZAM & Friends rather than just ZAM.

Yeah, I'm actually pretty bummed it's so far in front now. A bunch of my friends are going to be joining the FC, and I know they won't be too excited over the name. Stupid democracies! Smiley: tongue

Maybe make a ZAM LS that isn't Karma Zameleons. Because in there I'm not sure all of them were from ZAM (no idea though).

I'm hoping Kraken pulls out in the end.

I would be cool with this. It would give a way for ZAM users in other FCs to communicate with us.

Kraken Club is beating KZ by more than ZAM is beating KZ, and is beating ZAM in the other poll but not this one... I'm so confused!

Well, the other polls top off at about 60 votes so maybe it will surge ahead for a come from behind victory!

I'll be totally happy with ZAM or KZ, too... it's just fun to have something game-related to focus on.

Where are all the Kraken Club people?

Don't you want to be able to shout UNLEASH THE KRAKENS at the start of dungeon runs?

Man, looks like i missed a lot of stuff this week. Since Beta P4 was going to start on Friday, naturally my computer died on the Wednesday prior. finally got it fixed just now, so sorry for being late on the voting. :)

i picked Kraken club for reasons beyond my own comprehension.

Typing this site's name in back then was such a pain... put that H in the wrong place and BAM, RMT central and you installed a keylogger.

This.

It could be a shout feared across Ultros for PVP as well.
