Grin I had to think way way back to try and remember

Back way before 2142 days thought it was cool to try and get known. Thought I could play and become a bit of a wild card, jump in a server cause some havoc and leave. Being the self interested person I am lol thought people would like this wild card on their side, i.e traditional wild card that could be substituted for any other class/card. So I could play any role and mix it up.

Except then some random took it at some stage so had to change to livewildcard. Because you guessed it I'm alive. Original I know. But since then it has stuck and I use it for everything.

I've been through a few ingame names so bear with me Smile

ulrik9999 - First ever online pc name, taken from a Space Wolf character from Warhammer 40k.

Rock_N_Rolla - Created after watching the movie Smile Someone stole it for Bc2 though Sad

Evil.Clown - Created just after we started JKS used in 2142 and Bc2

Union.Jack - Bc2 pretty obvious where this name comes from. Anyone who doesn't get it should be shot Smile

(it took luckys brother 3 months to realise)

Always interesting to learn how people come to have the names they have!

Evil.Clown has a great amount of humor but also sends a warning message my vote for best name so far!

Jailbird, from the Simpsons "Snake Jailbird"

Chester Turley, or Snake Jailbird, also known as Professor Jailbird and Detention Bird, is a recidivist criminal, always getting arrested, but rarely appearing to stay in prison. He speaks with a "Valley Boy" accent. He is partial to fast cars and fast women, and has a knack for reckless abandon.

I'm pretty sure we've got a couple of other threads on this too Moo, but I'll forgive you for not searching for them mate - the forums are cluttered with 2 years worth of crap, lol. Plus it's Xmas so I'll be nice Razz


As for my name - nothing special. I was about 19 or so and hadn't ever played any online games FPS's or otherwise. I wanted to be cool, call myself something awesome like "Blade" or "Devestator" or "The Terminator" or god only knows what.

Naturally they were all taken within an hour of the game going live, and I was about 6 months off the pace. ( I'd actually bought 2142 about 3 months before I installed it not knowing whether I'd like this online garbage.....still not sure. CUNTS! )

So anyway on the day, with all the "good" names taken, I decided to muck around. Tried a name, taken, had a beer. Tried another, also taken, had another beer... Eventually I got to thinking about the game and playing styles. Thought about "lying low" or "lie low" but by this stage I was onto my 4rd or 5th coldie, and couldn't think how to spell "lie" so I went with "lylow". The name stuck and Ive used it ever since.

The moral of this story is: Stoopidity will reign supreme!

I've also used a few since then:
  • "GiggedyGiggedy" Because who doesnt love Quagmire?
  • "CheekyMonkey" This name I created so I could basically play next to my mates, be a cunt to everyone (specifically those same mates) and no one would know it was me. Lasted about an hour before someone said "Lylow is that you with the shotgun? You dolphin diving whore!" Rolling Eyes
  • "Uncle_ChopChop" - Wanted a new character, going through a phase where I must have watched every "Ronnie Johns Half Hour" about four times over, and what better name to use? HELLO KIDDIES! ITS UNCLE CHOPPER!
  • =LOL= SHOTGUN AHOY - By far and away the most fun I ever had with an alternate. Was back in the days before we created JKS and a few of us were a bit upset with how our previous clan was doing. I had enough one afternoon, so I made up LOL tags, and gave myself the name of my favourite gun. Told my mates what I was up to... and before I knew it, there were about 12 "=LOL= (INSERT_GUN_NAME_ HERE) AHOY's" running around. Jack, Mettie, Lucky, Cracka, I think even zoomie and reefer were in on it. (And Im sure there are more of you, sorry if Ive forgotten!) Ahhh the memories! Id like to think it was the fore-runner of JKS! Love

Well, my real name is Regan. All my friends call me Regs, but when I'd just bought Battlefield 2142 Regs was taken, and one of my best mates had started calling me Regats, well that was available so I went with it.

OMG Reefer, I always thought Reefer reffered to a "joint" because thats what it means to me. So you're not a pot head after all? lol.

I knew you were Regan mate, but never twigged that Regats was a nickname off your name in RL! Lol, stupid me hey? Nice one mate.


And as for Au_Reefer... Sick He should switch back to Shadofighter. The day Reefer was born, a little part of me died inside. Sad
