I voted for Rain of Steel.
I think this rolls off the tounge the easiest.

Could you post the list of game titles from the survey. Once you take the survey you can't go back and view it again.

I'll be one of the minority to say that I don't like the "rain" titles. Rain conjures up air attacks only and I feel the game offers much more than airplanes. I much prefer Storm of Steel as I can imagine a massive build-up of armour, planes, shells etc. waiting to be unleashed in a fury.

I think this the right communication attitude to create a solid fan group for CoH system.
The picture is great.

RAINING STEEL

some personal advices:
Steel from the sky
Gray Skies
Gray Storm

I think Storm of Steel evicts the the massive tonnage used by both sides, with a slight innuendo of Stoßtruppen.

But, you could call it Barbie Does Moscow and I'd still buy it!

I voted for Steel Rain. It's simple and straight forward, and is what I already thought it was going to be named!

Rain of Steel is the best IMO. 'The Bear Unleashed' could be a nice alternative for the follow up on 'Awakening the Bear'.

I voted for "Stahlgewitter", which is Storm of Steel in German.

Cheers,

Me too, for the same reasons.

Between the proposed names (Steel Rain, etc) and the cover art (with THREE airplanes), the game 'feels' more like an air combat game than I suspect you are intending.

'Rain' suggests air and artillery.
'Storm' evokes more than that-perhaps a combined arms attack, with air, armor, artillery, etc.

Thus, I'd change the cover art. Have one airplane only (perhaps the one strafing the ground troops). Make sure some of the Russian ground forces can be seen (right now, its all black smoke-perhaps add a T-34 that can be seen, or a russian trench line, or something).

Considering the first game included a T34/85 and an MG43 on the cover (both anachronisms for the period covered by the game), I had expected this one to include a Leopard II and AK-47s

I prefer "Steel Rain" over "Rain of Steel", which sounds too close to "Tide of Iron".

"Storms of Raining Steel!" is kind of fun in a "my native language is not English" kind of way too.

Rain of Steel sounds needlessly indirect. "Steel Rain" packs a punch, especially after the preamble of "Conflict of Heroes."

I have to agree with Steel Rain being the best title. All the other titles sound... strained.

Darn, it looks like Survey Monkey popped out after 150 votes. Is anyone else having difficulty voting for the first time? Any other survey options available online, maybe through google?
Thanks,
Uwe

Had the survey not been closed I would have voted for "Steel Rain"

If I could have suggested a name I would pose: "Hammered to Hell"

Both evoke a similar vision

The cover art needs to ditch at least one plane and add more armor, maybe a higher vantage/perspective point would help to introduce new tanks, as that has been the selling point of this game/series expansion.
