Yes hello

Postby Spearderpsy » Tue Apr 25, 2017 12:02 am

As the subject says!
Been playing since, uh, a bit into last season, but I figured I'd poke my head into the forums as well.
I do things on occasion! That said, introductions are not among the things I have any appreciable skill at...

Anyways! Just started on a personal project to make a team of uniform names, because silly self-imposed challenges are the best kind. <3

So, that's all for now, I guess. Once again, yes hello.

I may or may not have confused surnames with first names. In my defense, it's 2:30 in the morning.

That said, I'm not sure yet. I'll be keeping an eye on the tradelists and see if I can figure out which names come up more often than others.

Hi and welcome to the game and especially the forums!

Usually last-/sur-/family names are more likely to repeat than first-/given-/fore-/Christian names, so I'd go for the thing that goes on the end of the name and choose an English one, if you'd like it to be somewhat achievable. ;)

Got it, thanks!

It does mean that the match reports won't be quite as amazing, but there's still definitely some opportunity for fun, there!

Exactly my point! As far as I was aware, match reports use a player's given name, rather than their surname.
That said, with similar surnames, I can make it canon that the entire team is actually just a bunch of siblings that decided to make a team on a lark :^)

Maybe I got it wrong, too; yea, First Names does sound like it will be easier.

Welcome, welcome. I'm Deatheater. I kinda had some problems and there was drama towards the end of my first career, so I haven't been here in... I don't know, a year? I was forgotten, but I'm back, for who knows how long. Things you should know about me:
I'm crazy and irrational
Stupidly ambitious
Totally unreasonable
Occasionally humourous, though mostly awkward

So yeah. Have fun here, and a word of advice- don't make any deals with me. Also don't piss off anybody like I have. (Sokolov a couple times, cygnus-flamel I think, maybe Xter, and Cygnus once)
Ew why was my signature so cheesy?

Really, song lyrics? Yeesh, I haven't left all of my cringiness behind. I promise, it's mostly gone now.

I should have at least quoted a less dramatic song.
