Ship Names T10 IJN Cruiser - Senjo戦場 to Zao蔵王山 0.3.1?

 

Unless there has been changes. The next major update will change the Tier 10 IJN cruiser name to Zao from Senjo.

 

Now I assume Senjo is a papership hence the devs could call any name to it, which probably ended up and named Senjou = battlefield, however they probably changed it to 'Zao' as historical naming of IJN heavy cruisers and bigger ships after mountains. That mountain is Mt. Zao as many assume. But the name Zao by all means sound chinese.

 

The patriotic chinese wont probably like a chinese sounding name into an IJN ship. It may or may not cause some trouble in the future.

 

There are alternate mountains names to choose fromUnless its official paper ship name is Zao?

 

If anyone is following the chinese and japanese threads what are their opinion on the ship naming?

I'm full on objection for this renaming. (not because I'm cultural racist against CH :hiding:)

I can't see a reason why WG keeps renaming paper ships, especially in this case because Senjo have more of that "Japanese" feeling to it than Zao.

Disregard I'm blind. It still feels Chinese no matter how you think about it.

 

Well, it it makes you feel any better, it's also ざおう

IJN heavy cruisers are named from mountains.

 

"Senjo" derived from Senjo(-ga)-take 仙丈(ケ)岳( Mt. Senjo)

"Zao" derived from Zao-san 蔵王山(Mt. Zao) (or Zao-renpo 蔵王連峰(zaou-mountains))

 

Few IJN heavy cruisers have its original mountain name with "ga-take".

almost all of IJN CA have their original mountain name with "san" or "yama" (山)

so "Zao" is  more suited than "Senjo".

 

But "Zao" sounds not so good as IJN CA name for me.

I think "Zao" is short a little and "Senjo" has proper length.

Zaou and Senjou and both valid, though i feel Zaou is more suited, because Senjou should correctly be named Senjou-Dake, which feels pretty weird to call a ship.

Also, no idea why so many of you think of the Chinese when you hear 'Zaou'. Zaou-san's lake is very a famous tourist spot. 'Za-Ou' means 'Great Hole', probably referring to its caldera lake.

I guess that's what happens when all you know about Japan comes from pop-culture.....

 

Yes, but like every other ship in the game, they will take the U out so it will become Zao.

Hey that's a good idea, having custom name for our ship :great:

 

They mentioned on the recent Anchor report that they are looking into it. Soooo there may some form of hope.

Well looks like it was still changed to Zao.

Pity because Senjo sounded more like Japanese, and personally i think Senjo sounds better.

Senjo sounds good

but Zao sounds too Chinese

I feel bad about this name, it looks like Mao

I initially have a little desire to grind the IJN CA line

but after that patch, I have no motivation the grind it any more

This is an old topic, don't necro it.

 

Also, the decision to rename was already made, and if you get turned off just by the name, I'd say you are too much of a weaboo :P (kidding :hiding:)
