    Inconsistent comparison.
    The Unit Name is Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. If you're following the standard you just presented, it would be JMOK.
    No Legendaries are referred to as Legendary in their abbreviation.
    No Epic Confrontation characters are referred to as ECs in their abbreviation.
    Stop trying to make it a thing. It isn't even that clever.

    People who try to make GLOW happen are the same ones who pronounce GIF JIF

    Hey now, I think GLOW is stupid and I pronounce it "jif" (correctly)

    Well, GAS is the officially sanctioned abbreviation, so bad example. FOX is First Order eXecutioner (maybe should be FOE, but still just using an accepted swap for Ex), and BAM is the right letters just in a different order.

    People trying to do GLOW or JMOWK are adding things to try to make the abbreviation work. I'll admit GLOW is fun (I tried to make GLEE a thing for SEE; it worked as well as fetch), but it's just not going to stick.

    Actually, pretty sure the unit name is simply "Jedi Master Kenobi" since that is how CG has been referring to him the entire time.

    I'm not trying to make GLOW a thing. I'm just pointing out you listed a bunch of cherry-picked examples to try and insist there's an arbitrary set of rules. The community has shown there are no hard rules for abbreviation conventions. They'll come up with whatever they think works. It's unlikely to be GLOW in this instance. But it *could* be, if people liked it, because there are no rules.
  • All these people complaining about WAT being required... LOL

    This is a game of progression.

    Did you complain about ROLO being needed previously?

    Not everything is for every player from the jump; you have to earn your way up. You shouldn't be able to get the same toons as a player with 8mil GP that has been grinding their tails off for 5 years (or spending lots of money) with your 3mil account. I'm sorry, but that just isn't equitable and doesn't make sense in any way, shape or form.

    I think these last reqs are too easy. I wanted to see R8 KAM.

    I'll go back to my Ivory Tower since I'm an elitist.

    An acronym is a word (like a synonym or an antonym), so you should be able to pronounce it like a word (foe, fox, gas, bam work). If not, they’re just boring initials.

    Brilliant.

    Only limiting naming conventions to GLs is cherry picking. Not only are there no rules for fans' naming conventions, to suggest that there are different rules for GLs vs the rest of the characters is out of left field. You don't have to like someone else's acronym; that's fine. But just say you don't like it. Don't pretend there are rules.
