Player names
Ok, I'm curious (treat this as a new year's survey, if you will).

Do you coaches out there care about the names of your opponent's players?

The site rules disallow numerical player names (eg, 1,2,3 etc), but do you find it less enjoyable to play vs a team of "vrhl", "utfn", "mmmn", and their friends, or do you prefer to play a team with proper names that fit some type of team fluff? Is it more enjoyable to kill "Ragnar the Mighty, son of Bjork", or could you care less? Is the "sploosh" of "nbft4" as satisfying as smooshing "Elfchild the Beloved"? Do we like seeing "gfat2" in the TOP PLAYER lists, or does it make you feel as if some part of you just died of sadness?

https://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=623913#623913

Let the fun begin!

<3 proper, suiting names.
Posted by keggiemckill on 2015-01-03 01:22:47
I rarely read my opponents player names, but if I notice I do care that people don't put in that minuscule effort into a team.
Posted by pythrr on 2015-01-03 01:28:36
Damn me and my name improvising. I have to make an elf team called "Elfchild and the Beloveds" now...
Posted by pythrr on 2015-01-03 01:28:54
Or a band. One or the other.

Names make it better. Don't like random letters or numbers.
Your are commish of a fluffy league...you should know better!!!
/me would spank pythrr but me knows he would like that
Posted by Chainsaw on 2015-01-03 02:32:18
I don't like names that sound like speech impediments.

Totally on the side of fluff & proper names here.
Posted by Cavetroll on 2015-01-03 03:24:58
I enjoy reading fluff created by other coaches.
Posted by roante on 2015-01-03 08:24:34
Even if you don't care about player names, you could use this little tool I wrote:

https://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=23639

With a single click, you get a random fluffy name.

Use roantes RNG.
I do, and it's awesome!
Posted by akaRenton on 2015-01-03 10:28:56
I use an RNG, but as it generates names in batches of 50 I can still sift out the ones I like. All my Dirty Cranberries players were named from the site. Link if it's of use to any:

When killing for recruitment it's nice if they have a good name
Posted by albinv on 2015-01-03 15:13:31
I have da bestest player names. Sometimes.
Posted by uzkulak on 2015-01-03 15:57:23
I use the same player names on my DE teams that I first imagined 20 years ago... they shall never die!
Posted by SerenadeOfSorrow on 2015-01-03 16:25:00
i agree to names should be made to stand out so if they become legend it doesnt sound like someone coughing up phlegm when whispering there name in the stands
Posted by Verminardo on 2015-01-03 17:25:43
Good point SoS. Imagine you had the greatest player ever to walk Fumbbl and you hadn't even bothered to start his name with a Capital. ;-)

When playing in the client, I don't usually pay much attention to the player names, but I do when I check out teams I am scheduled against or that play in tourneys I am following, and I do when speccing other coaches.
Posted by SpecialOne on 2015-01-03 20:30:41
I like the fluff that is in the names. That is why I made this team:

https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=790750

And I have several players lined up. I'm most sad that David Beckham died off so early in the teams career
Posted by pythrr on 2015-01-03 21:35:35
you, sir, should be playing in OBBA.
