55 replies 954 views Edited Oct 7, 2012
My friend recently made an account named "iBiZaSki" which is obviously a knock off of iBiZaTwist's (Idk how caps go) name. This made me realize how much that annoys me. Why the heck copy someone else? because he/she has the most kills/wins/obj points, unluckies,deaths? Are they THAT much of an idol to them? I don't get it.

I see more people using certain clan tags like, GET+ or OMG!, and that gets to me more than people creating ALT accounts that are similar to known players. Lol, just yesterday I ran into someone using the GET+ clan tag, and his/her stats were 1,200 kills and 5,500 deaths (not exact, but close enough). 

 

I will say that the only time I encountered a player with a PSN name similar to a very good player, they were pretty good (iBiza_Mix). I assumed it was an alt account, because they had close to a 5 KDR.

I play Uncharted 2 since the release and I must say the amount of The_Legend_10's I met in those years is insane. Sometimes whole parties with that name.

I find that mildly offensive... although it's only slightly similar to mine... I just refused to use numbers and really wanted this name back when I got my PS3. When I foung another Skin and Bones I immediately added them though! Easiest friend request ever! Hey we both have the same name. Let's be rivals and stuff.

 

On topic I've seen quite a few Darkshadow's, and since I have one on my friend's list and all the variants are just "Darkshadow###" it can be very confusing because the numbers are usually very similar.

I have 2 friends whose names are of the form iBiZa_. One of them said he's hoping to join iBiZa_Twist's clan and when I join his party, he's got all these other iBiZas like iBiZa_ShaRk and iBiZa_SunRyz. Seriously, what the hell?
