  • pet peeve of the moment: misleading names

    of all the things i cant stand, its when arrogant pricks come into servers, call themselves "newb" or something along those lines yet obviously own pretty much everyone there

    like just a few minutes ago i finished on a dm server in 1st place with 30 kills in 7 minutes and so i see some guy called ultimate-newb (probably with some weird capitalization algorhythm) and in just 3 minutes he has like 22...

    your opinions? i personally think that anyone who has to disguise themselves as a newb is just completely insecure as a person and makes them look like *******s. point is: if youre going to call yourself a noob, you better play like one

        Lmao, were you playing on a demo server as "haha" last night? I saw you there asking that guy to change his name, lol. I was aliasing, like I usually do on DM pubs.

              but why

              dont you realize you just wind up appearing as a player whos insecure about their skills

              that kind of mentality is even worse in some clanned people - its like theyll alias in case they lose, but if they win theyll put on their "1337" clan tag to show everyone theyre "1337"

              :bulb:

              and no im not that "haha" guy but apparently he has a point

                True n00bs don't call themselves n00b, they call everyone else n00b.

                  I really don't know why I alias in DM pubs, it's not really because I'm insecure about my skill as I can win most of the time in pubs. I think it's more of a routine, it's not like I don't want people to know I alias because I leave xfire on, and anyone who has me on their list can notice I'm aliasing. And no, I have never unaliased during a game to show how "1337" me and my clan are.

                    yeah it can be annoying

                    yeah I find it annoying when people that are pretty good at the game have that kinda names....with noob in it......I'm not sure why...personally I guess I feel like I'm being made fun of......and if you say that its a joke.....well I don't see how it is funny.......but anyways I hold no grief toward them....its all cool...

                      I sometimes alias when I'm learning a new gametype or something - I don't want to embarass myself. It's quite interesting the difference in play style it makes. When I'm using my real name, I get much more atatched to the game. If I alias, I can play without feeling the need to win as much.

                        So... if I name myself KickArseLeetSOB and you kill me a bunch will you feel better then?

                        Rarely do I notice names, and only then to know who's kickin' my butt. Don't much care what the name is... just need to watch out for that one at that time. duh.

                          Quit complaining about stupid little details. Who cares what his name is. Do you only play people who are terrible or are you just scared of a little challenge if you're good then you'll beat him no matter what his name is.

                            So people shouldn't be allowed to call themselves whatever they want. Yeah Right. In case you can't guess my nick on INA is an alias. :haha:
