I was always quite intrigued by the amazing creativity behind what people call themselves online.
Some are funny, some deep and most trollsome! =D I'd like to ask you, people of the carmageddon forum, to share here the origin story of your nicks, if you'd like to!
I for one will sure read thru that and hopefully solve the mysteries behind some nicks =D
Perhaps I should be the first tho so here is how my nick formed:
When I was 15 I was playing lot of half-life deathmatch and even painkiller later. I was switching nicks very often as I was never happy with the one I used at the time.
One day I decided to create "life long" nick for me. After long hours of serious brain sweating, at this ridiculous and useless thing It finally hit me.
In late 1990s there was topic of massive techno parties in czech republic, people were basically going Woodstock - only listening to hardcore techno, they called it CzechTech.
I admired how easy to remember that is, seeing how media spreaded the usual propaganda about how the youngsters are going out of controll. I've decided to parody that,
But Czech*what?* ... And since I was playing online - killing other players, I decided to be all tough and intimidating and went with jouvinal and somewhat dumb "CzechDeath"
I even made little czech flag with grim reaper as spray logo. However since I'm not strong in any kind of nationalism. I later, upon playing DOOM3, ripped some textures of blood sprites, out of the game files and I've created the CzechDeath, written in blood, so when I spray it on the wall in HL and HL2 dm it looks like some mad person just utterly massacred somebody, in that ingame world and wrote their signature in victim's blood.
So there =D what is your story? =D Dont be shy and share it! I want to know =D
