Thumbs down Why? *shakes head*

The story...

I am playing a online ctf game while holding my own, and our team wins.

Now the next game starts...

While playing I notice someone on the other team has switched their name to look the same as mine with a extra space on the end so the server will except it.

Anyways, I was wondering why some people have to be like that and change their name mid game just to "try" to piss me off. Personally I think its funny that some people take "A GAME" so serious that they have to do things like this to try and piss people off. Oh well, to each his own I guess.

I think some people just get bored or just are that way and have to do it. I've thought about doing a lot of stupid things online, but would never actually do them. Also, they're probably just trying to get a rise out of you; ignore them!

I would just ignore the childish behavior and continue to enjoy the game. Whats really pisses me off is the idiots that get in the game to make noise. Constantly repeating voice commands like DIE BITCH on & on. Just have to ignore them and hope they get kicked out.

If that's their definition of getting some action, then they got some serious problems.

I have had the nick Stillborn since I started playing UT online (over 18 months ago) and as far as I know I was the only Stillborn back then (I checked ngstats for another thread a along long time ago...)

So, a couple of days ago I jumped on a server and started playing... I then saw another guy called Stillborn And he started spamming to his buddies in Swedish "look what that feckin' russian is called" (I play under the nick [RSU]Stillborn... RUS-Russia RSU-Respawners United... big difference ) they call me llame and so on without realising that I'm Swedish too... I sit there listening and after a while I jump into their conversation and I ask (in English) the other Stillborn how long he has had that name and where he got it from...

He says that he has had it over a year and that he saw a Swedish player use it once... I then starts talking Swedish to the guy and I tell him that he is the llame one and that I'm not from Russia... It was me that he saw and he stole my nick that game a year ago... Damn was he quiet after that...

If you want peace, prepare for war..

LOL @ Stillborn

There is only one Crakdeala in the UT scene and I am not really worried about competition However, I considered changing it many times because
a) people assume that folks called Crakdeala will display lame behavior and want to get a headstart on me
b) It is offensive to some... I picked it as a rebellious teenager and well... thought it was cool. Now it's just my name. People call me Crakie anyway, maybe I should change it to that

Some would argue I am an evil man. But in fact, I have the heart of a young boy.... in a jar... on my desk.

That's happened to me b4: ppl started showing up with similar names as mine, with the same characters..
At first I looked at the screen in disbelief
then I realized that it must be the tortured souls of sore losers that I had fragged again and again, and I thought, "Wow! I have a fan club now! COOL!"
Still didn't stop me from dropping them with my guns...

So take it in stride, man! Gives you all the more incentive to take them down.
