I am wildly confident that I and the community would love to be able to Rename/Nickname our dinosaurs.
As a comparison to other popular games with the same feature, it would be a fun addition to an upcoming content/patch for the game. This update would ignite excitement within players personalized team of dinosaurs, impassioned to share them with friends and the JWA community.
Thematically, this would tie very closely to the branding and fantasy of the recent films. Having a team of dinosaurs that you’ve trained and named, like Owen Grady. We could have our own veritable “Blue” from the films. There are already forums/threads on lists of player’s dinosaurs names that they love to share, I believe it’s time to give all players that voice and power!
There are such close parallels to this desire and theme of the game. Collection, training, fusing. You grow up with your dinosaurs. You train and battle with your cunning raptor pals, your powerhouse carnivores, your steadfast titan herbivores.You give that bond a name. As of right now, with it’s unchangeable animal names, it’s as if we’re asked to battle with horse, dolphin, toucan, and a seagirat (Seagull-giraffe-rat hybrid).
Whether you decide to leave the names the same or level up a Tyrannosaurus Rex named “Dr. Spaghetti”, this freedom and bond would give an emotional charge to each victory and defeat.
I M A G I N E:
“You can do it, Speedboat! I believe in you!”
“Oof… Sorry, Littlefoot. We’ll get 'em next match.”
I think we can all agree that our dinosaur names would be private and localized to our game files. This would allow the original species of dinosaur to remain/replaced if we were to delete our dinosaurs nickname and would still likely be mentioned in the dinosaurs bio/profile regardless. Also, having the names be privatized to the users device would disallow players from being subjected to someone else’s crass or racially insensitive named dinosaurs when battling or viewing another’s profile.
Please help to make this a feature, JWA Community! I know that they pay attention to our feedback and suggestions!
