Name for Barrelers/Hoopers Class
« on: March 04, 2021, 04:03:34 PM »
Has any thought been given to a name for the new combined class? There must be something pithier than Barrelers/Hoopers or Hoopers/Barrelers. Something that wouldnít take up as much space on premiums. Something that wouldnít take as much effort to say or type. Something that would roll off the tongue as freely as the names of other classes, like Weavers, or Jumpers.

Anyway, I was thinking about hoops (which are round) and barrels (which are also round, and which the dogs go around), and started to think that Rounders might be an appropriate name. It describes the obstacles (sort of), itís fun to say, and best of all, itís pithy. The more I thought about it, the more I liked it. And it doesn't have any negative connotations that I can think of (even on Urban Dictionary). But there must be other suggestions that would work just as well. Any other ideas?

I like the idea, but my issue is there's nothing in the name that "names" the main obstacles like Weavers has weaves, tunnelers is all tunnels, etc.  I can't think of a catchy name that would give someone an idea what was actually the main focus of the class.  I'll keep thinking.

This is definitely not official yet, so please nobody think that it is, but in the office so far we have been using the name Grounders because of the all ground work nature of it... the chances of that sticking are pretty good but time will tell.

Grounders was actually the name I came up with first, and for the same reason! That's what led me to Rounders.  I think I ended up liking Rounders a little better because it conveyed more of a sense of motion (as in rounding the barrels), whereas Grounders made me think of tripping and planting my face into the ground. Not that I've ever done that. But it's nice to know that you're thinking along the same lines. Grounders and Rounders are equally pithy.  ;D

Bloopers - Definitely my favorite choice name of the combined class.  Sounds like something Elivs and I would excel in.
