Or like i said before, a small banner ?
Say a banner on the chosen color tunic you could paint by yourself. A small square in the middle..
Perhaps an Aura surrounding the player.. though yeah your right it would sooner or later fade away in its uniqueness.
A colored tunic with a branded name is also neat and if it could be possible to only enable guild members to wear it.. Nice.

I couldn't find a better one... but if the names are as clogged up as that... *censor*. :P

@Enq - who says its going to be the same? Changing the font of the names and making them more clear would be a start..

Another easy solution to this is to make guild tags show up as a different color on your screen. Think Ultima Online, WoW etc..

Think a 2D game using tiles. There is simply no room *around* the tiles to write out the name without obscuring something else; what's in the adjacent tiles. And names will take up the 3 tiles above your character, therefore also going into 2 tiles of those who stand to the right and left of you. Thus names will clash.

Could you show me a screenshot (or just a drawing) of your idea? Show me one character surrounded by eight and each name readable.

Nope, as I'm not an artist. But the text looked pretty large and bulky in Akarra which could be changed I would think. And having your guild players in a different color their color would stick out. I don't have akarra experience but I have seen this work in another 2d game I use to play back in the ages.

The additional slot for it sounds really cool. It could add an element of RPing to the battlefields too, providing a realistic way to recognise other people as friend or foe in mid battle without trying to discern their face through their gladiator mask. They used a similar thing last time I went paintballing since we couldn't see each others faces through the masks.

Yes it did was rather large. I'd rather have something smaller but still read-able and it doesn't clash like Enq. said. Could be done with a certain size i think..

What about just having the name and tag show up only when you hover your mouse over the player? And maybe the cursor could turn into their guild banner.

It did that in Akarra, there was an option to enable it permanently too..

Good idea that.

That is a good idea by Thand. It would cut the long names out and I think its more original and cool than a robe or something.
