Well my name Joshboy is pretty uncreative haha, just something a lot of my friends used to call me. But my alt account I use Atlas, referencing the character from Bioshock, which is in reference to the titan in greek mythology, cause I just love that story so much
I've had my share of cheesy names over the years but they were usually 2 word names and I could never fit the whole thing in with clan tags when I got a game so I decided I wanted a 1 word name. I looked up a word generator online and chose "rare" words and spammed generate until this came up. I'd never heard "Hydroid" before so I googled it a bit and found out that a Hydroid is a life stage for animals of the class "Hydrozoa" and although they look docile and harmless some can pack a painful sting. I thought that was the kinda image I wanted to give and so I chose it.
My Battlefield 2 name was - T3hmuffinM4nyo (Which reads - The muffin man yo).
I was playing a 16v16 competition "the netGameRadio battlefield masters" and one of the shoutcasters (Jonny Sisko) couldn't pronounce my name properly, he called me;
The muffin may no
the muffin man mayo
the muffin mayo
the muffin may-no
So I started playing CSS at MachoMuffin and ended up using Mayo
Pure randomness... Well actually I changed my name several times. First it was ggsnipes then SGak (ppl prononunce it s - Gak its SG-ak) then to snipes then back to ggsnipes than to dns then back to ggsnipes.
tbh my first ever nickname was Gaaranarutol >.< (I was 12 rofl)
ULTRALISK DROP HARASS!!!! THE QUESTION IS WHICH OVERLORD IS THE ULTRALISK IN??????? Playing DotA 2 beta at the moment...
In real life, I'm pretty mean to my friends around me. I just make jokes about them a lot (in a friendly way of course). So people started calling me meanie, so I just tweaked a little bit to produce MeaNy
Neatnoicepls just comes from how I drink whisky. Since I'm a bit of a whisky geek and have about 30 bottles.
SlowHands was just a joke nickname I got at a lan cafe I used to go to in England way back. I wasn't that fast but compared to all the WoW and Hon players there I was pretty quick so they started calling me slow hands.
My ign is mrfool and its actually my 2nd account, I gave myself that name because I felt like an epix fool after some major losing streaks after a long hiatus from the game! Well, fools are cool right?
Uni camp, we stayed up drinking all night and I went to bed earlier than the rest of the guys because my group had to get up at 5am, the others not till 8am. After about an hour they decide I should come back out to the campfire, so they burst into my room and start dragging me across the floor in my sleepingbag.
Now this being a hot night I was sleeping in nothing but my boxers, so in my sleepy/drunken state I scream out DON'T I'M NOT WEARING ANY PANTS! I was then dubbed PantlessPete and the next night (whilst again drunk) one of the guys said it should be my SC2 name, so I got on his laptop and changed it right there and then.
5-6 years ago I played a CS rip-off basically called Kuma War and I name myself Private_Potthead. I couldn't think of anything better when I joined SC2 so just became Potthead, then I joined VB clan so added the tag
I was at school, in the library, talking to my friends about their Starcraft 2 names, at the time my name was horrible and i was in the process of finding a new one. SUDDENLY, i saw a book from across the room, named "Profiles in Audacity", and i was like BOOM, that's my new Starcraft 2 name. Then the bell rang and i went to maths class. True story, and a cool one at that...
