Neither Dig Steal Kill or Dig Steal Slay rolls of the tongue, because of the short words and pauses.
Try and say them five times, fast:
Dig Steal Kill Dig still kll dig sill kh...
Dig steal slay dig slteel say sdig...
Counter-strike / Call of Duty / Minecraft / etc are all much easier to say. They "flow" better, so you don't get tongue-tied trying to say them fast.
Battlefield on the other hand is another one that is a bit awkward to say a lot, so my friends call it BF.
Battlefield batterfield batterfull baffle...
Because they're awkward phrases to say, people won't say them, they'll use the abbreviations instead.
Out of the abbreviations, Diss is better than Disk, because it's already a slang word for "to insult", where as disk is a word for a round thing.
Out of: "Hey wanna play insults?" and "Hey, wanna play with round things?", to me the insult-game sounds more fun than the round-thing-game
Personally, I'd try to come up with a name with a noun in it and an adjective or adverb, instead of a bunch of verbs thrown together.
Digger killers. Shovel Slayers. Sandpit swordfight. Dirt wars. Thief Killers. Muddy fortress. Dwarvern heist. Miner wars (that's already a game ). Six feet blunder.
Cow-ess for counter strike? I haven't heard that one before, but it makes sense I guess My friends call it see-ess.
