Im sure you have noticed by now that we all call both hawken credits and Meteor Credits, Meteor Points and Hawken Points. Its become the name through the forums and its probably time to amend a change to the interface to reflect this. Another point I will bring is that MechWarrior also uses MC as their purchase currency. Changing yours to MP would make it different.

I also just prefer to say points rather than credits anyway. Just a movement on the forums that probably could be taken to heart in the interface.

We previously referred to them as points. The problem is, you end up with HP and MP... and those already have well known connotations in many games already. (health or hit points and magic/mana points)

We also tend to call HP health here. kind of funny right.


Also Tazz its a suggestion. It doesnt mean it has to get done now. Its just that the way we call stuff and the way its named in the interface is different.

Then at least make the Meteor Credits Meteor points because there is no way there is mana in here unless im missing something.

Keeping them both as 'Credits' emphasizes that they serve the same role (buying things).

As fwip said, being named "credits" implies what they are...a form of money, one earned in game and one bought by actual money. Therefore being named points would not be correct or indicative of their function.

Just take the time to learn what acronyms mean what, it took me a couple of days of posting on here to understand most of them without having to ask what they were.

MC = Meteor Credits
HC = Hawken Credits
XP = Experience Points
CBE = Closed Beta Event
OB = Open Beta
SS = Sharpshooter
etc.

Cheers,

Gagzila

Let's just call them by their true, honest name:

Space Bucks.
Reason as my minor ego, and opposite my desire to be a murderer.
A coagulated, gloomy thinking in the intelligence, as my major ego.
An antinomian theorem of behaviorism, in all of my thinkings.
It's what we call "The Inversion Impulse."
