  • When released, make Templar Assassin's default name "Lanaya"

    1: That's how it seemed to be earlier on in development, when she was accidentally made playable near the start of the year. With some more recent data-mining, however, it seems she has been renamed to "Templar Assassin".

    2: With the release of her and Nyx Assassin, we'll have three Agility heroes with "assassin" in their name. While I don't mind Nyx Assassin and Phantom Assassin having the "assassin" part in their name, there is a chance that if Lanaya is named "Templar Assassin" in-game it will be confusing for new players, as her and PA are both stealthy female assassin characters. Not only this, but I feel that having three heroes with "assassin" in their default name may be just one too many.

    Um, I think that's it. I have a couple more arguments involving her using a proper name making her more relatable to and familiar for LoL players coming to Dota, but I'll leave that out for now. I said assassin a lot of times.

    TL;DR: Make TA's default name Lanaya when she is released.

      moved to lore.

      actually it's four assassins (you forgot Stealth Assassin).

      i also think, this heavily leans into this thread.

        imo making phantom assasin -> mortred would be better. its obnoxious when there is phantom lancer (and mortred sounds cooler :3 ).
        But anyway, ya lanaya would be fine althogh it doesn't say as much about her character as mortred does for phantom assasin.

        My hope is that somehow they'll (eventually) fit both names and titles in tho :/

          Mortred > PA and Lanaya > TA imo, especially considering there's another Phantom already.

            I do have to agree that too many heroes having their name on the screen containing assassin could be confusion for new players at time.

                Instead of making her default name "Lanaya", why not simply implemented something in the interface to show the Hero name?

                SA PA NA TA? wow, we can do a lot of interesting anagrams here.

                            Her Art Feedback forum is called Lanaya, so chances are she will be called that.

                              Valve usually chooses the name that was used more ingame by players, like more people used Sven than Rogue Knight. And PA rather than mortred. So I think Lanaya will be used because that's what most people call her ingame
