Missing map[edit]

Map is to be added later. If someone wants to go ahead and make please do so [try to color the regions as closer to their in game color]. ~ SolSys (talk) 18:32, 30 December 2015 (CET)

Name change?[edit]

Zraith suggested the name Upper Asia for this page. TBH, I like it more then my original name since it give the users a better understanding of where the area is. Maybe we should change it when all the region pages are done? ~ SolSys (talk) 01:09, 2 January 2016 (CET)

Maybe North(ern) Asia would sond more serious? Puchacz (talk) 11:33, 2 January 2016 (CET)
Northern was one of my choices, but I discarded it for Greater. The page contains many nations people associate with the far east so I thought it might be a bit confusing. Upper seems even better because it gives a better indication of location [upper half / lower half] and actually contains all the upper half of the continent. ~ SolSys (talk) 12:34, 2 January 2016 (CET)
However, upper is not a geographic term, is it? Puchacz (talk) 12:43, 2 January 2016 (CET)
No, not really. For geographic term Northern is better. For naming Upper seems more right[?]. Anyway, we still have another couple of weeks to decide so there's no rush to choose a different name now. ~ SolSys (talk) 13:00, 2 January 2016 (CET)
I think I prefer Northern as a term, eventually I'd like to have them in a navbox in the top right corner of the page. If possible we could look into placing the regions on a small map as wikipedia do on the [1] Administrative divisions of Ghana. Dauth (talk) 14:02, 2 January 2016 (CET)
If I am not wrong Upper is for higher region, indeed Upper Egypt is in South and Lower Egypt is in North. So I prefer Northern. Stigni (talk) 15:18, 2 January 2016 (CET)
I'll agree if by higher you mean further away from the mouth of the river and thus higher in elevation as I believe that's how the terms Upper/Lower are used (Upper/Lower Egypt, Lowlands). Was thinking what to call it when I was making the map and Northern was a thought, but I discarded it because of Tibet (this especially) and Central Asia, otherwise I'll agree with calling it Northern Asia.

Name Suggestions[edit]

Anyone got name suggestions for the combined super-regions of Near East + Persia? See the maps here to get a feel of the area. ~ SolSys (talk) 18:54, 2 January 2016 (CET)

Middle East seems to be the right name for this combination. Puchacz (talk) 23:33, 2 January 2016 (CET)
I concur, Middle East is the best for the area. Zraith (talk) 00:59, 3 January 2016 (CET)
