Hey guys just always wondered about how people came up with their ingame names, was it randomness? Did you just happen to see something which made you say: huh, i wanna name my sc2 account that. Or was it just a coincidence?
For me i got my name Brultze when i was very young and was trying to copy my bros online names which were dtrulze and atrulze(the first and second letter represented their first and last name while rulze represented well... rules... and was supposed to be pronounced as d-t-rules or a-t-rules). But i was super young and copied it wrongly... So instead of btrulze i typed in brultze... However, i liked the name and so it stuck with me for almost all the games ive played.
So for me i got my name by accident. How about you guys?

Been Next_rim for ages, all the way from warcraft 2. I only changed in in WoW for Nemezida, cuz you can't use underscore, and I don't really like NextRim that much. I don't really remember how I came up with this nick. I think it all started when I was like 9, and was setting up my first e-mail account.
back when i was 16 i started this clan called alternative. at that point of time i thought it would be cool for there to be a theme for the clan and everyone to pick their favourite band as their handle(silly idea lmao). my favourite band at that time was nirvana. the end!
I originally used usernames based off pure randomness, but eventually I came up with a name based off a meme from a garrysmod community.
In this garrysmod community, called gmod tower, one of the players used to say THATS CUPTASTIC! heaps... My brother was pretty involved in that community, and told me about it, which I thought was pretty funny. So for a while I used the username "Cuptastic" because it was funny.
Then minecraft came out. So I used the username "Cubetastic", and still have an account on minecraft called that.
Then when I got interested in starcraft and starcraft 2, and found zerg extremely fun (Yes, I chose zerg only because it was fun, I thought I was better at protoss), I decided on the username Zergtastic. Although I've considered changing my username to something more serious, I probably wont end up changing it, as I think its going to stick.

I got WC3 RoC for christmas, and as you guys know it's really hot in Australia during christmas. I installed the game and went to go play on B.net but my computer kept over heating and resetting . So i opened her up and discovered my Fan had stopped working. So after changing the Bios settings so my PC wouldn't reset. I logged onto B.net and made the account "Nofan".
Not my original ID from SC1 but it has been so long I can't even remember what that was (I think I first started using xpaperclip on AMV.org). For a while I just used my real name on forums, then one day I was inspired by an animated paperclip that got sacked. Perhaps a little odd, but I've grown attached to it.
