By chance, MOP’s Carlo struck up a conversation among our team a week ago all about embarrassing character names and gaming handles. Apparently he was teasing a friend for his “xxXLegolasXxx”-style name, when his wife slammed him hard by teasing him for his old handle: TWISTING FANGS. It’s a Guild Wars skill name, but he cringed anyway. Ah, marriage!
Anyhow, it turns out most of us are guilty, and our team had a good time roasting each other for our really dumb online names. I’ve confessed my sins before: When I was a teenager, I used to name my MMO characters after obscure Wheel of Time characters. But some of my colleagues turn out to have far worse examples, so I feel slightly less embarrassed. Slightly.
How about you? What’s your most embarrassing MMO character name?
