Replacing your current WGT avatar is certainly optional. But, it appears that other teams are coordinating official looking graphics.

The team name and theme originated from science fiction’s version of mythological demigod/classic antihero (not just BSG characters). I thought the use of cycloptic robots (presumably without depth perception) juxtaposed against the 2D nature of the WGT platform was kinda funny and slightly intimidating. It also doesn’t hurt that Battlestar Galactica was badass.
