So like, the trolling was funny but now but this conversation has been blown waaay out of proportion. It's brewing into shitstorm that is getting pretty stupid, even for SSG standards. Now I can understand irritation with the similarities in names (despite there being a pretty obvious 'S' at the end) but I see in this thread some pretty heated posts over something so trival. Honestly people, there are better things to get worked up about.
Sirovv has already stated that he isn't the one who created the name and if we put our hate aside for one second, we can infer
that the actual holder of the name probably wasn't intentionally trying to steal the fabled Ahi name. We can conclude this by:
1- As mentioned before there is an S.
2- There is an 'Darth' in the name. So Ahis obviously isn't a last name. Ahi happens to be a last name. Big difference.
3- Future potential Darth Ahis has yet to make a comment in this thread, there could be many reasons for this but we can guess that they have little to no clue of the issue concerning the name, unless Sirovv told them.
4- There are only like three characters in the Ahi name. OH GOD *gasp* it's impossible for someone to accidenly use those exactly same three characters, next to each other. If I made a character named Ahiu / Ahil would that suddenly be stealing be stealing the infamous Mando last name?
5- Character is a Sith, not Mandalorian. Besides the three letters there is nothing here that suggests Darth Ahis was copying -anything-.
The Ahi don't care who did what. Change it.
I don't know whether you're trolling or not (judging from your later posts I would assume you aren't) but if I accidently chose a name similar to someone's toon and then they presented me with this sort of demanding attitude? I would not change a damn thing for them.
Wouldn't the better route have been to send pms instead of advertising this little issue across the OP's thread? Because from my perspective it certainly seems like you're trying to start drama for the hell of it.
THIS MADNESS IS NOT LEGITIMATE...yet.
Damn people, we don't even know if Darth Ahis intentionally copied the name. Maybe wait for a response from the owner of the name before you pass judgement? The moment they see all this hate I'm sure they'd be more than willing to change the name. If they don't and have an attitude about it? Then that's a different story. But still, it's not like the name Ahi or any variation of it can only be used by certain people. While it's a dick move for someone to steal another's name, sometimes you have just ignore and deal with it.
Also, the main topic seems to be concerning the name, Darth Ahis, so why are we rashing on the guild's name and the guild in general? I will be the first to admit Imperial Marine Corps is a pretty uncreative and generic name... but who really cares? That's their choice as guild leader.
So yeah, I support trolling this thread and any others because it's fun and that's the only use Starsidergalaxy is for these days but when it turns into actual drama I gotta laugh and butt in. Though it doesn't seem that way, I'm assuming the Ahis are just trolling. Or... I could be wrong.
Does my opinion count or does anyone care? Nope and probably not. But don't care. Posted it anyways.
Now I am going to go back to lurking and watching how this unfolds.
