The latest update for CATAN – World Explorers was a terrible blow to the life of the famous Catanian: Roger the Shrubber. Roger lived a simple life, just exploring the world, walking to new pastures and collecting those pesky Shrubs all over the globe. He traveled wide and far, made new friends, and sent them on quests. Season 17 suddenly left him without a job – are those busy developers ever thinking of the common Catanian? It seems not. This is why it’s time for the community to step in!

We are looking for your help to rename Roger the Shrubber. Traditionally Catanians are named after their profession or some character trait that defines them, like Tyra the Tireless or Helga the Haggler.

Please submit your suggestions in the comments below by Friday 18th, 2021. The best suggestions will then be collected and put up for vote (we may also add a few suggestions ourselves). Please note: Only reasonable submissions will be considered for the vote, we don’t want Roger to have a second identity crisis. After a week of voting, we will update Roger’s name in an upcoming update to the game according to the outcome of the vote!*


Yours

Boaty McBoatface and the CATAN – World Explorers Team

    Tyra the Tireless? Helga the Haggler? Roger the Rogue?

  • DavejjjjjDavejjjjj Member Posts: 21 ✭✭

    Roger the Robber, out of work and resorts to crime.

  • GrogyanGrogyan Member Posts: 535 ✭✭✭✭

    Roger the Rascal

  • GrogyanGrogyan Member Posts: 535 ✭✭✭✭

    In my opinion,

    Titles should alliterative to the name

    Eg Bob the Boss

    Tyra the Tireless


    And be interesting,

  • WindWind Member Posts: 548 ✭✭✭✭✭

    If need tomsuits with the theme that already in place


    Roger the Resourceful gets my vote

  • GrogyanGrogyan Member Posts: 535 ✭✭✭✭

    @Wind It may be popular, but it isn't very interesting.

    We have an opportunity here to make something bland, interesting and fun/funny

  • FiddleheadNZFiddleheadNZ Member Posts: 56 ✭✭✭

    Roger has been one of my favourites right from the start so I like that he gets a rebrand.

    How about “Roger the Rummager”?

  • YondabyYondaby Member Posts: 8 ✭✭

    The post didn't stayed if keeping the name "Roger" is required. They might be open to entirely rename him for some word fun.

  • CATANdominikCATANdominik Administrator, Community Manager Posts: 195 Community Manager, Global

    @Yondaby I just checked in with him, and Roger said, he would be open for some more creative name suggestions that would include switching to a new name entirely.

    @CATANdominik yay, more alliterative cleverness

  • NdorfynNdorfyn Member Posts: 31 ✭✭

    @Grogyan Roger the resourceful is alliterative cleverness. Because It both fits with the theme of the rest of the Catanians and is a thematic pun- 'resource full'

    Easily my favorite suggestion so far
