So as you can see I've been told to change my username.

Not upset as the reason given was a fair and valid one.

 

Problem is, getting a nice new one.

100% of names I like have been taken already. Most on unused accounts... (And some were really, really far-fetched...)

WG won't release those names. I asked them pointing one out I really liked that had 0 tanks played, 0 battles, 0 activity ever since registering back in 2011....

 

So I need to find something original/nice/not too immature

But if I ask you guys to post suggestions here, I somwehow suspect someone else will register it first :P

What to do, what to do... I'm reaching the bottom of my creativity pit fast and don't want to end up as XxX_HyperStealthNinjaSniperAssassinZeroCommanderWolf_XxX

 

(Edit: I have used numerous lists of rare/unusual English words (I was quite smitten with Calliphygian, but alas - taken.) , tried online name generators, tried combining different names, tried to be funny, tried to be not funny, been through my favourite books, movies, songs... )

Try more underscores or X-ses? :trollface:

But yeah, coming up with a new name becomes increasingly harder, and not just for WoT. :sceptic:

Got a bit of an issue thinking up stuff myself.

It has to have PL.

When people see PL they know that you are very good player.

Quite interesting that the system has given you a name which is not allowed due to the similarity between the letter S and the number 5.

PM me, i am perfectly happy with my name and would not change it or steal yours. Alternatively, why not speak to real life friends and family

Combine some well known unicorn names. So you could have a QuickyCir, or Skillsbaby, or, or, or,......... damn I don't know any others.

Hear Ye, Hear ye.

 

A decision has been made.

 

Taking into account the following criteria:

 

- No names of real/fictional personalites/characters

- No number suffixes. Don't want to be the 34th person who couldn't think of anything better than adding a number to an OK-ish name...

- Name preferrably also not taken in alternative spellings.

- Accurately reflect my l33t level of skill and experience at this tank decorating game.

- Instill fear and confusion into the hearts and minds of all who dare oppose me.

- When I savagely carry a game, people look at my name and say, respectfully: "We never doubted him"

- When I stupidly throw a game, people look at my name and say, respectfully: "We didn't even bother to watch it end"

- Not including the words Elite, Pro, Sniper, Fighter, Warrior, Cupcake, Panda, Destroyer, Slayer, Gunner or Girl

- Suitable for someone who only has tier 6 tanks but won a tier 8 in the christmas loot boxes

 

So, from this day on, I shall be known as

 

SoupFork

 

Why?

I would avoid anything Cliche

 

Like sniper, Rambo, Chuck Norris etc these are kind of unoriginal

 

Also I have had some vaguley humourous names such as

 

Fartbreaker funny for around 2 days

Vomlette Ditto

Krapulax & Krapulon. Based on the Finnish word "Krapula" which means hangover.

 

My old one which was copied  a lot was Captain-Insane-o

 

some that I quite liked " Wesley-Snipes"

"AquaCat" "Spazypaddy"

 

I often try to think of something surreal or from some other part of my life to with work or hobbies , but avoid things like BMW or Colt 

 

and of course my own name Discontinued As it causes some confusion, as people thought their thread had been closed when I replied

 There is a good wy to find your porno name that could also be applied 

 

1st name = Your first pet

2nd name your mothers maiden name

 

mine would have come out as 

 

Junior Niskanen
