Talking PR player names.

Am i the only one wondering that in a mod that tries to come as close as possible to real life combat every player has somekind of name that no mother in her right state of mind would give to her beloved child.
Not saying that you should use your real name, but using an excisting real name would be one of the easiest ways to make the game more real.
Nor am i saying it should be realy done, but its just so obvious.

Ummm... Don't you play with a name like "Epim3theus".

If you so choose, make an account with a name like happy-noob said. I like my nick.

I made a real name character but then realized I piss too many people off and knowing my name is the first step to stalking me.
I like to see people's originalty in their names.

My name was original and then people started stealing it left and right

But my name is original.

no, all you can do is add/change your prefix.
unless you start a new account just for PR.

I like to think of player names as nicknames that RL soldiers often give each other.

However, if someone joins your squad and he is named something like 1337SNIPAH662, just call them Private Pyle, shit for brains, maggot, or some other name.

It works. They will quickly realize what a retarded name they have.

Hell at Karate my nicknames are Bond or Supermodel (really long story). It would be kinda cool if the SL could somehow assign nicknames to people in the squad. Now that would be fun.
