Yeah well I think it's bullshit when people use their names so all of their buddies won't hit them.
That's not always the case. Sometimes people are more likely to attack you if you are well known. So they can test you out and see how good you are, and have bragging rights if they manage to beat you. And if someone doesn't like you on the boards, they'll likely be hunting you ingame. It can be a blessing and
The point is, that you have the nuts to put your reputation on the line. Someone who pulls random names out of their ass, will never have to face up to the embarrassment of someone making a thread letting the world know how they bitch slapped you back to the stone age. And point out every stupid mistake you made, at 3 in the morning, half drunk and half asleep.
And I think it's bullshit when people use feeders as a crutch for lack of skill, so they can acquire easy land without fear of retaliation.
