Name and number Edit

The announcer says he's combatant 11 when he's de-rezzed, and the rotating player list says number 11 is Pike. The matchups are inconclusive, but the numbers never change. How much more proof does that need to say that he's number 11, and his name is Pike?--24.186.68.204 20:33, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

The problem is that the names are basically just pulled out of a hat and assigned somewhat randomly. There is at least one character that dies and is then seen alive again in Sam's light cycle team. I don't have my notes right now, but I went to the trouble of working out almost the entire lineup with hopes of documenting who was who, but ultimately discovered that the names are not valid. Pike doesn't cause as many logic problems as a couple of the others, but at most all the documentation that can be granted to that name is a trivia note under Disc Opponent #1, and a disclaimer about its validity should be supplied as well. -- WarBlade 08:12, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
Isn't that pretty much what kept being reverted in the respective articles? A note at the bottom that says "They were #_, and #_ was named ___." All that would be needed in addition is a second note saying how there's a flub in who's derezzed or not where applicable.--24.186.68.204 09:27, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Either way, wouldn't it be better to have him listed as "Combatant 11" rather than "Disc Opponent 1," since the former is what he is referred to in the movie? Disc Opponent 1 just makes it sound like he was never designated in the movie so there's nothing to go off of at all other than his role against Sam.

"Disc Opponent #1" is his official designation in the credits. -- WarBlade 11:56, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
