    Nicemadeupstory Your Gamertag story?

    So i was was looking at the online member list and thought "I wonder if there's a story behind those names..."

    What's the story behind your current name/gamertag? Some random thing you thought of, your name, your moms name, or maybe some wizard bestowed you with it.



    Mines a weird one... The story, not the name ResoSketch, tho one can argue

    So about a year and a bit ago, Under the name 111shaneb111 (i was young when i made that name) i was playing a game called starmade with some friends of mine.
    My faction mate was in a ship called HMS LUNA. It looked a bit like a rainbow. Not important. Anyways someone in chat called for help as he "accidently" flew his ship into a star.
    So i jumped on hms luna with him and he flew into the star to knock the ship out of it (wow this seemed like a great idea at the time)

    "HMS LUNA DESTROYED
    ENTITY STAR"

    So as we respawn someone says "DAMMIT LUNA WHY DID YOU GET BANISHED AGAIN"
    I didn't get the joke (ill explain it later) but my friend (who i was in teamspeak with)(im using to many brackets) burst out laughing for a good 5 minutes straight and kept randomly laughing after that.

    So after he regains enough composure to talk again, about ten minutes later, He explains how Luna is the goddess of night from my little pony and that her sister, celestia, goddess of the sun, banished her to the moon for 1000 years for turning evil. (Isn't funny enough to laugh at for ten minutes but hey, if thats your thing)

    After a "why the buck do you watch my little pony" speech he said watch the first 3 episodes and i guarantee you will like it, and if you don't ill give you the blueprint for HMS luna"
    I accepted his challenge because HMS Luna was a neat looking rainbow ship.

    So around episode 9 is when i noticed what happened.
    He made me a damn brony.

    Wait, what has this to do with your name reso? shush wait im getting to it

    So After a while of enjoying ponies way to much i wanted to post my art online. But i didn't want to use my 111shaneb111 name because eww it has 6 1's and my name in it.
    So after computer gave a popup telling me that it has to scale down the resolution of a picture i took the name kinda got into my head. Reso(resolution) and Sketch (because it was a sketch)


    Tl:DR
    took picture of drawing with camera
    Camera= Resolution
    Drawing= Sketch

    ResoSketch. (pronounced: Rez-o-sketch)

    The meaning behind my gamertag is actually quite simple. While I served in the 101st Airborne. The unit I served with was the Rakkasans. Did two tours with that badass unit (Afghanistan and Iraq). And my baby was the 240b.

    First real mmo I played was Ultima Online. Helped GM a private server with only 100 people so I was able to make my characters name Rob. UO has a karma system for titles. I got The Meek. Hence RTM. I ran with RobTheMeek for many years. Then I started doing video editing for fun, hence Productions. = RTMPro. I've had RTMPro for, probably, the last 10 years or so...give or take.

    For a long time i went as CyberWraith. That whole ghost in the machine thing. My current name is because i was a Khazix main on LoL and thought this name was more catchy.

    Well I dont have a very inventive name however I have been using this since 1999 so I guess thats something lol I was born in 1980 and he-man was a big thing for us 80's babies and I always though skeletor got a bad rap plus at the time I never saw anyone use it so why not :)

    I'm not a very tall or muscular guy.

    I had moved in with a roommate a few years back. He was a big guy, football player build. He was nice enough to give me a 2 room suite in the back of the apartment while he and his girlfriend took the larger room at the other end. I naturally used one room as a bedroom, and the other as a computer room. I had a pretty nice setup in there for what I had at the time.

    The only unfortunate part about it was the laundry room was right off of my computer room, but it never bothered me as I used a headset.

    One night, about 1:30, I was getting ready for the horde of drunks coming to get something to eat before heading home when I get a call on the store phone. It was my roommate. Not uncommon as we worked together for a while before I was put on nights. Sometimes he asked if he worked the next day, sometimes he needed to tell me about something that happened earlier in the day that would effect me closing the store.

    He was stammering trying to tell me not to get mad, and hesitated for quite a while before finally telling me he accidentally flipped a switch in the computer room trying to turn off a light in the laundry room, but it turned out the switch was hooked up to the only power outlet in the room, the one all my computer components were connected to.

    I came home later that night to my roommate doing whatever he could to avoid me for a while. While trying to figure out if any damage was caused as my computer had been defragging when it was turned off, my roommate finally mustered the courage to come back and ask if he killed it.

    I told him all was fine. He told me he was relieved because "You're pretty psychotic about your tech, man!"

    Thus, I started using the name Psychotech, Psycho for short.

    It even carried over into my work...

    nothing special, takuta was just half of the name of an old toy I had 12 or so years ago. it's also the maorian word for doctor, but that's not why I picked it.

    I had made a post like this when I started in this clan but I couldn't find it but oh well. Mine comes from my favorite episode of "Kirby Right back at Ya", on episode 95 kirby is possessed by a devilfrog and goes on a rampage so my gamer tag is a simple reminder of what episode it was.

    Back when I was seven years old, I asked my dad if I could play Battlefield 2142 on his computer. He said yes, but I had to find out a name for my profile. Wingdude100 came out of it. Then for about 4 years, during my Wii days, I used many different names, ranging from Metroid to "Me." Then once I got my PS3, since Metroid was taken, I had to get a more unique gamertag. Then, I thought back to many years ago, when I played one of my favorite games, and resurrected this name, and I've been using it ever since.

    There once was an evil pirate known as LeChuck. He abducted the beautiful Elaine Marley, Governor of Mle Island, and being the mighty pirate that I was, I sailed after him, armed with myriad companions. I am Guybrush, the mighty pirate!

    Disclaimer: If you weren't around for the days of DOS gaming, you probably won't know this game. But for those interested, The Secret of Monkey Island

    I had mine for years. I think the first game I used it was SWG. When I was trying to think of one, I wrote out my full name and tried to create some type of anagram for it. Since the anagram for entire name would be too long, I used two letters from each and what resulted sounded kinda cool. So I have been using it since.

    Well, my gamer tag has changed through the years of gamin. started off as just Dragon, then I implemented a taste for blood into the name cause dragon was just too popular, so Blooddragon06 became my user name on the psn, 06 being the year I graduated from high school. lately though it seems like Blooddragoon has become popular to, so I changed it to what it currently is being Bloodreaperdragoon06 the numbers make it nearly impossible to be taken alot, and Blood being my favorite color of red, reapers are my favorite starcraft 2 unit, and the dragoons are my favorite protoss unit in the old games. so there is my history of finding the gamer tag.

    My name is grizzlyyy because I chew grizzly wintergreen tobacco. It has 3 y's because grizzly was obviously taken a majority of the time I tried to use the name in games. Exciting I know.
