    Who would give a name like that on american servers or even europe servers? If you read a classes name, you have a guess what that class possibly does. If you tell me "guandao is so great", I might be thinking you are talking about a dish lol....
    Lunar Dancer seems OK to me, or anything similar.

    I am sorry if American and European can't make a good MMO and they never invented Martial Arts or any weapon related to them, it is not my fault dear.

    Not sure what naming schemes have to do with quality of a game...

    Just so you know the glaive is a european weapon, and 'glaive' is a French word.

    Anyway, the point is, we need a name in English, not Chinese.

    It does when they say English name, the origin of the game comes from Asia, so it wasn't unrelated, wanted an English name, give an English name but that lecture I don't get it.
  • Using native name only works if there's no equivalent meaning word in English/ or when the term is a lot more popular even in the west. For example, ninja, samurai, nunchaku,... The equivalence of guandao in the west is glaive, so there's no reason to make things complicated by bringing in some unknown foreign name.
    It doesn't matter what they're called in the eastern version of the game, but the main point of localization is to bring the game closer to the intended market's culture. That's why it's called localization, not translation.

  • Poke-man. No, that's to close to some other brand name. Poke-woman.
    Curtain Railer. Stabbin Crew. stipdick.

    Does not actually play like Slayer.

    Something ending in -er would match up with everybody else (assuming we ignore Ninja)

    They're likely just going to call it 'Dancer'. Remember back when we got word of the 'Arcane Engineer'? Nope, Gunner.

    Class doesn't exactly dance.

    but in a video we see her dancing when she use her pole to do pole dance when she turn aroud her weapon to kill 500 monsters in 10 secondes :3

    I doubt they'll go with Dancer, as that really says nothing of the class and it sounds too... weak, or out of place.

    I'd go with Spearmaster or something. Boring, but safe.

    ye spearmaster very pervers name ;)

    the french glaive is not really the same than english glaive

    the french glaive is the roman sword they used to build their republic and empire
  • Never heard or read the word Guandao before, and honestly it sounds like some sort of 3rd world country. My bet is on Glaiver.
  • call it pole grinder

    I know it's not the same weapon, I was just pointing out that the word 'glaive' was French.

    A glaive (or glave) is a European polearm weapon, consisting of a single-edged blade on the end of a pole. It is similar to the Japanese naginata, the Chinese guandao, Russian sovnya and Siberian palma (ru).

    It is just a Cultural Word.
