    Default Akaian League 0.2

    Dear Mod Developers ,

    Last september i did a critique to you about the unintelligent and indolent way you chose to name Achean league . Essentially instead of doing proper research you duplicated a name. I tried to point out the problem with a colorful use of language . Instead of apologizing for you mistake like a great person would do you chose to report and deny the mistake. I am a stakeholder of twc since 2007 I never before came to my perception such self pride and self admiration and myopic behavior among mod developers.

    Not Sincerely

    Accusing the entire team of being myopic or having extreme self-admiration is pointlessly insulting, especially when most of the mod developers have absolutely nothing to do with the faction naming.

    I believe it's spelled "Akaian" instead of "Achaean" because in English it's closer to the correct pronunciation of the word. It's the same in vanilla Rome 2.

    It's just a name. You can very easily and trivially mod it yourself if you want. We'd be very happy if you created a submod upon release to correct this for people who prefer the traditional spelling.

    We did originally agree with this and said we'd look into it when we had less important things to work on. We did not chose to report you because you picked out a mistake... that would have been ridiculous as we'd have to have reported all 30+ of our testers

    Jesus so childish. I got excited to see some work on the "Achaean" League done.

    Perhaps u should start a war on the name Apeiros instead of Epeiros or Epirus.

    My god, somebody needs a hug.

    So... I hereby request the mod team leaves the faction name as is. The only reasonable response to such a rude post.

    I don't believe spite-driven mod development is the best strategy.

    That was some of the most conceited writing I've seen in a while. Like hey guys I'm white I'm going to use big words to showcase the fact I'm right and you're wrong while being as passive aggressive as possible! Like how dare anyone do things outside of my scope without my say so. Kid shut up and let the team do their job how the deem it fit, you can easily go into the files later and adjust to your own little beliefs; but for the meantime keep your obnoxious personality out of here.

    The name was already changed in our/my text files. I'm surprised this is such a heated issue, and there's nothing really left to discuss so I'm just going to lock this.
