    People that take other people's gamer tags. There is some dude that has decided to use my tag, and he played(s) on balloon race_V2B.

    I don't know why that bothers me, but it really does. I just found that out when I was going to look at my stats.

    My in-game name (tag) is Proven. The only real gripe I have with the Source engine is that more than one person can have the same name (tag) in game. Other games I have played only allowed one person to have a particular name.

    I hate the idea that someone is playing on the same servers as I am with the same name as I am. If they are being idiots and it is reported I don't want to get banned because of them.

    I hope I am explaining it right, if I am not, then you could do a search for my name in the TF2 Stats and see that there are two people named Proven now. The impostor has had a second alias "The Carpenter" before.

    :shock: lol...

    I attached a screen capture of what I am talking about. I am the Proven highlighted in red. They don't look like they have played very long (like 18h total), but it still irks me.

    I lol'd. But seriously, I enjoy that the names don't need to be unique. It's awesome. Makes it so you can have any name you want, eliminates the massive amounts of people who don't use Steam anymore with names you want from taking them from you.

    It doesn't matter what your name is because it's your SteamID that identifies you.

    A case of the Copycats. That is, if they actually played with you.

    Of course, if I meet another Cappabitch, I'll choke the cunt through the screen.

    Thank you Cappabitch for making me feel less crazy. He keeps playing on Balloon Race when I am not logged on. Copycat is a better name for it and in some places it would be considered "Flattering." Only on here, it is called reputation stealing because that is the server I typically play on and the regulars know me.

    Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't such a terrible player...he's got 3 kills and 14 deaths. Damn....

    I just noticed in Tf2stats their is another Hills. And here I thought I was being original. WTF. I'm claiming it back to 1996, so this dude is SOL.

    When I read this, all I could think about is the Dave Chappelle episode with Wayne Brady and choking a bitch. Here is a link for everyone to enjoy.

    Hmm, seems he's been using that Proven tag since November of 2008...and he was here first! He probably doesn't play much because he can't stand playing and getting confused with "that other Proven" who plays on the same servers as he does!

    Luckily you're a VIP and have a killer backstory to support your claim to the Proven tag! I definitely understand why you'd be a little irked by someone misrepresenting you on the servers though...especially with stats like "2 flamethrower, 1 world" for kill stats! :lol:

    As for the so-called -{[No Heroes]}- clan tags, they have made me chuckle ever since I was in a game where a few of them joined and one of the VIPs wrote MORE CLAN MEAT for all to see. Hehehe... :wink:
