There isn't much going on in the scene lately, so it was time to take the matter in my own hands and start exploring the scene for some funny facts. I will be doing this more often but here is a nice starter with some origins of nicknames by a few hardcore UrT players. Care to share your own origin? Feel free to comment here below!
lokie: "honestly i cant even remember where i got it from, lol"
Vrederust: "well vrede means peace and rust means rest I copied it from a local street name"
Carhum: "Well the history of my name is pretty easy, one of my friends urt name was Carbon, I liked the name and changed the name a bit into Carhum. I've been thinking many times to change the name, but since im famous under Carhum I didn't. thats kind of ma history"
nioubie: "my first nick was newbie, but i decided to modify into a french style, its still mean the same thing."
bobbelin: "My older brother came up with the nickname when I just started highschool. It was bobbeling remix back then. When I first started online gaming I made it BoBBeLiN. I removed the caps a few years back, altho ryu seems to like the caps."
Mess: "at the beginning, it was Mesrine, a famous french criminal, then it was Mes, then it was Mess because everyone started calling me that.
Chrillo: "Well, when I was a little boi i needed a nickname and since I was hiphopper I choose GANG$TAR. Then I grew up and realized how stupid it is to call urself some random nick so I choose my IRL nick Chrille for Christian and later chrillo."
h0ltes: "Well my nickname is from an old game who i played when i got like 10 years old it was something like "Battle field la chute du faucon noir"
rovis: "btw, my nick came to me, it's my destiny"
rYuuJiN: "My first nickname was M0oN$t4R.. then I started calling myself M0onieZ. But during this time it was a scene to have japanese nicknames, so googles > japanese names -> ryuujin which means dragon god, corny as hell but oh well :p"
over: "started with the nickname crashover, it was a nickname from the movie "Hackers", I copied it and later shortened it to over which sounds better"
