1. Thanks for all your efforts with rating recently! You have helped a lot with making this site more user-friendly! There are still many builds that have not received a single rating though, so if you see a build with no stars, you know what to do ;)!

Your phonetic build names sound like a 3-year old

    Yes, I'm looking at you, with your DakkaDakkaTingTingTingTing, BoomBoomWhooshWhoosh, and the other EckeEckeEckePtingZoingPang-like names for your mech build. Imagine real Mechwarriors using those names for their 'Mech variants.

    Don't do that. Get creative you noobs

    Well nothing makes my day better than seeing "Midnite has killed mother and children" or "his own father" in game.
    I wonder. How are those guys called in teamspeak? Own? Father? Mommy? :rofl:

    I would like to see more Callsigns instead of just plain dumb/silly names as well.....

    My absolute fav was: "Iwantedtotakejakebutthatwasalreadytaken"

    Well, I do that once in a while with those annoying names. Imagine people trying to tell their friends about the build!
    Trollish names are kinda fun once in a while, you should do it too! :cool:

    Well, at least that is what I was thinking when I made that DakkaDakkaTingTingTingTing name. Granted, some jukebox was playing some crap techno with almost the same tune (was in a coffee place waiting for a friend).

    Most of my names are pretty weird to many people, but here are a bunch if you want to use them.
    Some have a reference, eg "Sir Eglamore" was due to the song by Kate Rusby ()

    Others I use to name mechs, eg my firestarters are Eldjotun, Muspell, Surtur, and Yimir.

    I need to make more builds... Feel free to use these. Obviously not all the phrases/names are mine. Equally obviously, I like Ian M. Banks & Alistair Reynolds' naming styles.

    To bad when I made my callsign in open Béta (11-25-2011), I did't think about calling myself "Nobody".

    Nobody killed .....
    .....
    killed Nobody
