Is there a reason to how you name your survivors

I have switched to stats as a name so i can know what survivor can do what to which type of walker/savior

With this being my highest level hunter the name is 1H for #1 Hunter followed by 1308 for Damage and 1203 for Health
Makes it easier for me so if there is a certain level walker i know who to use or if one has to take a hit i know who can afford to do so
Interested to see if anyone else uses any type of strategy in their naming

    I name them by number according to strenth. Eg. Warriors= W1, W2... Hunters= H1, H2..etc

    Just a thought i might remove the 1H and then try to do a letter for traits

    Haha @DrPsychedelic that is how i had them before doing this, i thought of naming them this way a couple days ago then i forgot

    @Lydia thanks, so far it is helping me out a good bit, i never remember their stats so while im in a mission i can see who i need to use for which walker

    For some strange reason I want them all to have names that begin with different letters of the alphabet. Thank goodness I only have 24 player slots open :o

    But you'd need to change their name every time you change their gear.
    I don't have that much good gear to go around. My people have to share.

    I just name mine what I think they look like.

    I assign a Game of Thrones house to each class (e.g., Warriors = Targaryens, Hunters = Starks, etc.), and then name my survivors after GoT characters within the respective house :)

    I name mine based on how they look to me. My warrior in the blue shirt that looks a lot like Glenn I named Chopstix. My shooter with the dark sunglasses I named Shades.

    @tunky, Tywin Lanester got shot while dropping a deuce, by his vertically impaired son, with a crossbow he stole from the bastard king.

    My method is also very scientific and based in logic and statistics (NOT). :D

    Personally, I enjoy coming up with either fun names or what I feel they look like, but I get your method. The lack of available in-game info on your survivors is lame. Numerical health would be a starter, that red bar is inadequate.

    Aside from health & damage, I like to know which guy has the interrupt weapon and each survivor's dodge chance (including luck). Could even throw iron skin in there. Like you said, so you can choose who takes the hit. Not that I'm expecting all that info on the avatars. In the meantime, I just have shit written down for reference

    Mine are based on looks and for laughs. My number 1 hunter is Hank Hill and I got a shooter that passes for Peggy Hill. One assault I have is Mamalickabooboo and so on and so forth :smiley:
