Whats in a Name
« on: November 21, 2013, 03:01:30 PM »
The name is Web Rat, not Wee Brat. I got the name from being a Web offset Pressman
and has nothing to do with web surfing. Been gaming online since BF1942, ah the good old days eh.

Right out of High School, I was taking some auto repair classes at the community college and needed a new e-mail address. I guess either smoked too many drugs and frogot the password to my old account or got too tired of the spam from giving it away to unsavory websites. So I randomly picked metalmechanic as my new screen name on MSN as I listened to Metal and was taking classes to be a mechanic.

Years later when my boss got me to buy BF2, I was trying to find a cool name but of course they were all taken. The game having been out for well over a year. So finally I just entered the name from my e-mail address. I wanted to change it for a long time but was unwilling to give up my horrible stats.

Originally I was going to be Countfah-Qla, but EA wouldn't allow it.

Well, when I was a teenager the kids used to call me Italian Stallion as they do to most Italians when joking around.  I was a teenager when the Movie Rocky came out so it was a big thing back in that time period.

So, I tried to come up with a gamer name and decided to use just Stallion but the name was obviously taken and if it was not taken on a new game it would be within the first day.

So, I put the word Fire at the end of it to reference firing a weapon or for speed in a racing game.

I put it together and made the name StallionFire.

So there you go.  And just to clarify,  I am not Stalin as in Joseph Stalin.  Sometimes people read it that way and I just let it go.  lol....

Took my name from one of the main villains in the movie The Road Warrior. His name is Wez but is referred to as Almighty Wez at one point, so I took that. When I first started gaming online with Quake 2 it was RedDevil, then went to Ronin for Day of Defeat in 2000.

Went by "Biker", for a while, in my earlier gaming days (I like to ride 'cycles, duh)... just didn't seem to fit me: while I am an avid motorcyclist, I don't fit the "standard" description of a 'biker'.

Was always amused at the overly-serious names some players take... decided I needed an anti-ostentatious name.
In the Celtic-American community, I am   widely known as "Amadan", which loosely translated, means 'fool'.
One thing lead to another, and "Drooling Moron" was born.
I figure it serves, at least, two purpose: everybody loves to kill a moron... and it humiliates just a bit more to be killed by one.
(plus it's a hoot when I piss someone off, and they call me a moron, in chat... kinda missed the boat on that one, didn't they?)

Hi I'm BoosterStevens in game however, most people call me Booster. I started out with this name way in the beginning and never looked back. I really just wanted a unique name that I know would never be taken. I have been with this crew since the end of desert combat.

Was StarlifterFE because I had been a Flight Engineer [Flight Examiner] on the C141B Starlifter cargo aircraft in the USAF. AKA ToxicDebt for a while after the Financial meltdown in 2008. Now I am cRiNkLeStAr because I've been called an asshole more times than I can count. :lol:

Really have been thinking of the following. We should vote on it.

Curmudgeon - Merriam-Webster Online
www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/curmudgeon?
a person (especially an old man) who is easily annoyed or angered and who often complains. Full Definition of CURMUDGEON. 1. archaic : miser. 2. : a crusty ...

Should I continue with:

cRiNkLeStAr

or

cUrMuDgEoN

I vote StarlifterFE... No name changes allowed.

You're permitted to wear the the Tags [CAM], if you wish, because you're a crusty archaic miser.

My name is Drowsy Genie...but I started with the name Gooftroop, I got the name Gooftroop when I was like 7ish and my dad gave me a name for my Xbox 360 Account.  I wanted something "cool" like my dad's name Javageek and my brother's name Haconyc, so he gave me that name.  Fast forward 7 years and lots of different websites with the name Gooftroop slandered all over website's forums - and my Xbox Live account decided to never let me play on it again.  Tried to prove that I was indeed Gooftroop to Microsoft with no luck,  I would prove myself and 1 day later they would make me wait 12 hours for my identification form to process again.  Happened 5 times so my dad removed me from the Gold Family Pack and readded a new account.  I randomized my name several times and I got the name Drowsy Taco...  Didn't like the sound of it so I named myself Drowsy Genie.  

It leads to quite fun times when I hop in a server because they ask me for 3 wishes and I have to say "No, I am too tired to deal with such things"


I am 15 and been on the server for a couple of months now.  I might die frequently but I will usually take one or two down with me, I'm not the most patient of people.

Started out with some silly name (I think onehoyle), But the oldtimers will remember Makina.from the early 1942 days. She was a always spawning in front of my sniper rifle, with each kill she would write (your going to die) so I became Going to Die (Going: for short) and I miss those days. We had A lot of people from all over the world who would jam into teamspeak and ask for a opening on the server. Couldn't help but laugh at all stunts that were pulled on each and everyone.

Hmmmm...  I used to go by !InTeNsE! however some smart guy took my name.  Then games wouldn't let me utilize the "!" in the character name.  I struggled for a while and came up with m00snukl but my friend liked it and he used that one.  So back to square 1, I then went with droolcup but that wasn't good enough!  So I went to the instruction manual and kept seeing "Melee" referred too.  Let's face it what is better than a melee?  I love punching people and getting punched, to be part of a group of people who love the same thing is a dream come true.  So I went with my military rank of E-5 and Waaalaaaa  SgtMelee it is!
