    I don't mind him being called Doom, but if Doom Bringer is copyrighted, why don't just change it to Bringer of Doom?

    WHY they had to rename Doom Bringer is unknown but the reason they went with Doom is because it's much easier to simply cut out any lines that reffer him to doom bringer than record new ones. But jesus, I'm sorry but simply Doom is pretty bad and stupid, Tusk is pretty bad too but somewhat more accepted than this.

    Bringer of Doom like the post above me seems nice, but I think they should just stick to Lucifer, why the hell not? Why not call more heroes by their names?

    Ok, he doesn't have a spawn line calling himself Lucifer, he also doesn't have missing lines, so when they eventually record those can't they record the extra spawn line aswell?

    Also, only 4 heroes reffer to him by Doom Bringer: Axe, Chen, Kunkka, Omniknight. SF and SD call him Lucifer, Clink actually calls him Doom already, and Ursa mentions how he brings Doom but can just be reffering to what he does, other heroes don't bring up the name.

    So there are these lines:

    Axe: "Doombringer brings doom, Axe brings axe." (what are you gonna rename this one to? Doom brings doom?)
    You can just remove it, Axe had plenty of rivalry lines and it doesn't fell like a must to have a doom one. THOUGH in this context he can just be reffering to what he does and not be calling him by name.

    Chen: "Doom Bringer, be damned."
    Cut to simply "Be damned" or just remove it since he has another line for Doom.

    Clinkz: "Doom, I'll see you in Seventh Hell."
    This can remain even if you change it to Lucifer beause there is no harm in heroes calling other heroes by their titles aswell.

    Kunkka: "Doom Bringer, meet Tidebringer."
    If your gonna change it to "Doom, meet Tidebringer." it loses the purpose so just remove it. THOUGH in this context he can just be reffering to what he does and not be calling him by name.

    Omniknight: "Doom Bringer, in you I have bested the inferno itself."
    Just cut the name and keep the line, like to did to Spirit Breaker's line to Magnus.

    Sigh, the only problem is the poor Bastion announcer, I don't suppose they can get Logan to just record one more line.

    Valve must have another reason for doing this, but whatever it is I'm pretty sure it's a shitty one. Name should be changed back pronto.
    It's not possible to copyright a name. However, some names may be protected under trademark law, so there's that...

    Big lol to you for coming to a lore forum saying that lore means nothing. QQ less please and go away.

    Probably won't have to change that, it can be ambiguous which way it's meant to be understood so that can probably be spared. But the fact that the Bastion announcer has these lines must means it was an extremely recent choice and not something planned.

    If the problem is Blizzard then count the days until they have to rename Windrunner.

    Sure, because "Doom" is obviously just shorthand and holds absolutely no meaning of its own.

    The change from "Doom Bringer" to "Doom" detracts absolutely nothing from the hero's concept or lore. If anything, it's even more intimidating - he's not a bringer of doom, he's doom itself.
