I don't believe we should make it a synonym for league-of-legends as the game play is vastly different for TFT than for any other game mode in League of Legends. It is essentially a different game, it ...

Rename tags zerg, terran, and protoss to starcraft-zerg, starcraft-terran, and starcraft-protoss?

I personally think that we should rename them to be starcraft-zerg, starcraft-protoss, and starcraft-terran. The reason being is that all other tags that have subcategories in them, such as Minecraft, ...
