I fight a guy named Betelgeuse. In my game before this one I fight Wolfy and Shrike. Is this just coincidence, you all take the name from that or the game take the name from you.

They are named after the users. Its something of an easter-egg ;) . IIRC, there are 3 or 4 different gladiators with wolf-themed names.

Some people just have more arena-y names.

You can see Betelgeuse or Wolfy in the arena and it will seem a reasonable stage name even if you don't know the community.

Atarlost, Ttech, and Digdug not so much.

Yeah, it's more reasonable, I wonder if there will be my name (Kid) as the arena opponent in the next release :D

If what I wish about my name in the battle arena come true maybe with a custom description like:

"Don't be fooled by the name, he will make a short work of you in the arena"

Like that :D

Next release? unlikely; generally easter eggs get added for someone who has been around long enough to have made significant contributions to the game or the community. Find a bug or two and you can make it right into the credits list though.

Nah, maybe I will follow what Wolfy say, I'm just not yet a modder but for bugs I find a lot like stacked stations, I fight The Slicer as an opponent in the selection screen but I just reset my laptop so it all gone :cry:

I guess I'll have to make Hoshigami exist, I wanna fight myself someday.

TO DO: Hoshigami's take on Centauris: There are 2 of it! Neo-Centauris now have access to lasers, hence Arco Vaughn's comrade, (tentatively named) Catherine Vaughn, will be seen leading Centauri gunships, armed with supplies from Pandayan corp.

TO DO #2: FIGHT A CENTAURI in ARENA!
