I’d like to hear some of the nicknames you have for troops or teams that you see all over the place. I’ll start with some of the one that I use fairly regularly.
Emperor Khorvash/Manticore teams: “Manti/Khor”
Khorvash, himself: “Khorvy”. One of my friends just about died of laughter when I told her that “Khorvy-chan is being a b*tch” and pouted because twenty true damage to two troops HURTS
I find myself comparing Mab to vocalist Tarja Turunen rather frequently.
In the same vein as Khorvash, I end up calling Sheggra “Sheggy” and Gorgotha “Gorggy”
Not so much a nickname, but overdramatically pronouncing “BOOHNEE-NAAHG” is amusing. Even though nobody ever uses it.
Celestasia, after a string of fairly bad casts, resulting in giving the enemy team no less than five extra turns in one cast, she has been nicknamed “Moon-Moon the Mana Dragon”. She just can’t line up an extra turn for anyone but the enemy, and it’s sad.
Crimson Bat has been referred to ad “Bats”, “Batsy”, and other Joker-inspired nicknames for a very long time now
Dust Devil gets called Optimus, and there’s a fun story behind this. The vacuum cleaner at my apartment is awesome and transforms into like five different modes in the coolest ways possible, and the first time I saw my roommate use it, I couldn’t help but cry out “OPTIMUS! Is that you!?” Laughter ensued. And Dust Devil is a brand of vacuum cleaner. Or at least was. So therefore, Dust Devil -> Vacuum Cleaner -> Optimus
Gloom Leaf is Emo-Tree. Just read his description. He is not amused.
Hellcat gets called “KITTY~!” on a regular basis, in the same tone Boo used in Monsters Inc.
Jarl Firemantle goes by many names. I often get confused, because I want to say the Jarl lives in Whiteru- er, Whitehelm. But no, the Jarl lives up north, where he should.
Kerberos is Hellpuppy. Hellhound isn’t Hellpuppy. Kerberos is.
I always apologize to Sirrian, in my head, when I have to kill a Luther. Luther is Sirrian. Sirrian is Luther. There is no seperating the two in my head. Sirrian also looks exactly like Luther in my head. Nobody can tell me otherwise. No, not even you, Sirrian.
Mercy: “HEROES NEVER DIE!”
Moloch occasionally gets called Stan. Because, well, he’s not strong enough to be Satan.
Psion doesn’t really have a nickname, but it reminds me of a player from an MMO that I used to frequent named Mentallista. Not a coincidence that this person mained Psychics.
Anubite/Settite warriors get called Nasus (Or Susan) and Renekton, respectively. If you’re a LoL player, you know why.
“TYRI NO DON’T” might as well be an alternate name for her at this point
Venoxia is still Ol’ Swamp-ass
Webspinner is the cutest little buggy ever and if you don’t agree, I wish to watch as she eats you whole.
Do you guys have any fun ones?
