My guess goes to capital i and a normal l. Both names have deadly in it, so the l could be an i in one of the names.

DeadlyMachine and DeadlyMachine_ it would appear. Saw the StanleyTweedles platooned with themselves once, couldn't figure it out at the time, it seems I was unable to see the underscore at the end of the name.

 l  in deadly  might be a small  "L"  and in the other case  I as  big "i"  

lI no difference

DeadlyMachine

DeadIyMachine

As TsundereWaffle says the L in the second name is actually a capital 'i'....you can see it more clearly when you view their clan list...https://eu.wargaming.net/clans/wot/500155876/players/#players&offset=0&limit=25&order=-role&timeframe=all&battle_type=default

Yes, it is this. If you find the players by their clan in the wargaming profiles, then add them to the comparison feature, the "l" in deadly is a different height in both names in the comparison window (uses a different font, I guess - one I is as tall as the d before it, the other a little shorter) - so they are different characters that just look the same in the in game font.

 

edit - what Bravely said too :)

The old capital i and small l trick. Try finding me by putting Polestar with an L. Good luck ;)

Yup, along with questions like "magnets, how do they work?"

Think about it this way, you stopped a guy's head from exploding.

Someone doesn't have to clean up the mess now and is very thankful for it.
