Game Terms and Names

In order to keep conformity with the terms used ingame and help users to quickly relate the wiki's contents to the game, it would be better to use the exact ingame names and terms in all aspects related to the pages, including the page name. Hobbes (talk) 20:24, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Here are a couple of the terms that have different versions:

  • ADVENT (ingame it seems to be always used with all caps)
  • MEC (same as above)

Alert or Strength?

I think it's something we should decide and keep consistent. Should we use the term Alert or Strength when talking about what's internally referred as Alert Level but displayed as Strength? Currently most pages use Alert but for players coming here to search for information this term means nothing. If we keep using this term we should probably add a link to explain what this means. Alternatively we might simply refer to that as ADVENT Strength since it's what players see in various parts of the UI. Not knowing it's internally called "Alert Level" won't hurt their game but reading about some strange parameter apparently not shown anywhere can. I think it would make the wiki easier to read if we used Strength. --Lord Yanaek (talk) 19:26, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
