People who name their accounts after ships, why did you do it?

As some of you may know, I only play 1 ship and that one ship is ~(You know)... But I am curious why I see all these players in game that have their name after a ship like "ShimakazeXx1" (I just typed that in, not calling anyone out). But then I see them playing a multitude of different ships that are not their namesake. Does that make you feel weird because you are not keeping true to your name, or is the purpose of it to honor and remember the ship?

I had a ship name for a long time, but it became too confusing in other game titles and in Discord and Teamspeak

So I switched to the lowest common denominator

I've been a fan of HMS Dreadnought forever.  The mother of all battleships.  Plus I'm big, so when I used to play paintball back in the day "Dreadnought" was as good a handle as any.  So it's just been my generic online handle for quite a while.  Thinking about getting a Dreadnought tattoo actually.

Ironically, we don't even have HMS Dreadnought in game at the moment.  Bellerophon is close, but she's not THE Dreadnought.

Try to imagine defending yourself against an Isokaze with guns taken from the Tachibana, while simultaneously fighting a main armament duel with a Nassau. That's what Dreadnought would be like.

Spoiler

Back in 2015 there were numerous ships named after Trump. I had one player say he "captured" a Fubuki Class Destroyer and named it the USS Trump...

You are declaring yourself 3rd after 40 or so games? Don't get me wrong, you are off to a great start, but a bit premature, no?

Most of the the people here named after ships have to do with the clans FOG and KNTAI to start off with and have moved on from their and started more clans. At one point You had to change your name to join Kntai.

This was my ROBLOX name, and during the time of making it I was interested with the Titanic. For some reason I decided to keep the name when I made a Wargaming account.

Should have used a Mutsuki; then both could have been "Most Sucky".

I remember when Pirates of the Burning Sea went live and every 3rd person had a name that was some variant of "Jack Sparrow".

 

Nothing will ever compare to that.

Well I think they should make her a Tier 2, and introduce a bunch of Pre-Dreads, so people get a feel for why she was so awesome.
