Latin is language of passion when speaking the words choosen also reflect emotion as well as the tone used my alter meaning in one conversation. It would have to be in the passive tense, and it is definitely in the active tense. Figuring out Confido proves a bit more of a challenge. To rely upon something is to deem it necessary.

Last edited by Incunabulum ; Jun 6, 6: By this reading, the verb is confido I trust and vigilo is vigill dative of vigil watchman, guard.
Do not post users’ personal information. The first word, Vigilo is probably the easiest to parse, though not at one in the morning when I first started trying to figure this out.
Mine Stowasser, Latin-German gives first person singular present indicative active as well as first person singular perfect indicative active and the passive perfect participle please excuse me if these aren’t the right terms, English is not the language in which I learnt about Latin grammar. It is the very context which makes this statement gramatically incorrect as most mottos are, simply because they are ellipsis and these are per definition incomplete sentences.
I think its more along the lines of Watch and be Vigilant, Trust and Believe. I just took two years of Latin. I’m cinfido the High Command. Though the point is still valid.

View October 13, Vigilo Confido is not that good. I loved that game; it’s one of my favorites of all time. View October 7, View June 26, We know that there is something what they watch out for and what they believe in. That is, let the aliens find you and not the other way around.
Yeah but overwatch doesn’t help all that much mid combat, not unless you have confidence in your troops. They are both verbs. This is certainly an example for good latin, for a good and catchy sentence. I’m right aren’t I?
Man… I am a big fan of Vigil since the beginning… I wanted to know what this Vigilo Confido motto means… and I got my mind blown up… All of your translations are great and work… keep going!!! As an additional wild guess: The level vkgilo detail that seems to be going into this game is amazing, definitely one of my most anticipated titles in years after being such a fan of the original.
Don’t believe the church and state and everything they tell you. To start from the bottom, your assessment is more or less correct, although I moved quickly enough through my studies that I can confidently read primary historical sources and, a bit more importantly for the sake of my not being bored, skip a couple semesters of beginning Latin in grad school I’ll soon see if that was far enough ahead.

Somehow saying the same thing in French — Le derniner raison du rois seems less impressive. I like XCOMs motto, I like what his thought process behind it was and I think he culminated his thoughts quite well into the motto. Viyilo let alone connfido grammar.
I personally believe its “I protect and keep secret” or “I protect secretly”. Mine places them all in the infinitive form, since that’s concido base you work from to conjugate everything.
