Co-op Bot Names

Post by HairyRussianDude » July 3rd, 2020, 5:52 pm

One item on my to do list is wanting to change the default names of the bots in co-op to reflect our player base.
Trench had a fun suggestion of using spinoffs of player names rather than actual names.
So an easy example is how I always asked Christina to change her name to C4ristina. I'll never forget Rye rambling on about real estate forms once in awhile on TS so his bot could be Rye_on_the_T36 Form. We all know how impatient and mean Trench is so his bot could be Rage Trench.
More importantly, I wanted to do this to honor Patches by putting him back in the game.
So, I would love to hear your suggestions! What do you want your bot to be named? Any ideas for players past and present (we need at least 47 names!) and do you have any stories behind your suggestion? And what should we name Patches Bot in memory of him?

I do not know exact character limits offhand, but lets try to keep them short-ish. Bots also have a first and last name.
And please stay within the realm of respect when poking fun at other players.

EDIT: After seeing the initial replies, I just want to try wording this differently to get more results. When you no longer play this game, what would you like your bot to be named to carry on your legacy here? I think I'm going with "True Story HRD".
And lets focus on Patches. What should his bot be named?

Use ' Paul E. Wogg" for me. It's the name I used for my High School graduation practice. Was hilarious hearing the Vice principal read it off before realizing what he was saying. My buddiy used 'Jim Shorts'. I love names that are a play on words.

A few others:

Eta Pizza
Heimlich Manure

Just "C4ristina" might be harder to realize its just a bot. Maybe "C4ristina Jihad", trying to acknowledge blowing themselves up with it?

I think Otto's bot doppelgänger should actually be "Full Kontrol".

This is a really good idea. I think it’d make the server community feel “appreciated” whenever they hop in for a few rounds of coop.

Patches definitely needs to have a bot name, or two, one for each team.

Then I’d say any of the retired players that had a huge impact on the community. Old admins and such. I don’t know too many, but guys like Sarge Reyalp..

Good idea though hairy. I like it.

Oh and speaking of coop.

Moongamers usually adds 5-10 bots a side for conquest maps, it allows you to feel like the servers more populated. Maybe we could try that out and run some bots conquest along with our 10v10 regulars.., just a suggestion.

Otto, it shall be done!

Trench, I like it, done!

Bang, that is up to our overlords but personally I don't like the false player count when servers do that. I'm personally content with being able to choose co-op for a comp stomp if there are only a few people.
Got any name suggestions for the list?

I particularly found the idea very interesting.

In addition to honoring Patches, this could also honor players who are no longer playing on this server.

Please, no bot with the name of Christina, I beg you all.

One suggestion could be "Angry bird", to make a reference to my friend Screaming Eagle. :lol:

I could have a bot called blinkfanoob, I don't know why. :D

Finally, based on what Bang said about Moongamers, on another server "The Great Escape", they have a command "Nobots" something like that, when players start complaining about bots, they no longer respawn when they die and there is no need to change the map.

Just small suggestions.

Yeah the CQ bots would be good. Easy command to turn them off. But let’s say you were running 10v10, map changes, then we have 6v6. You add 5 a side, and it feels the same. Lol.

It’s practically like having a bunch of blinks on each side. I.E. free kills...

Lol

Like her or not, Christina was a long time player and we have slots to fill so C4ristina Jihad will be a thing. Enjoy killing her bot I guess!

What about Fackofa Typer for Blink to immortalize his favorite word and best skill?

Mali, since you have such a potty mouth on TS I would like your blessing to make your bot [WB] Ass

Blaine eats a lot of spicy stuff and cheese which leads to nightly TS poop announcements, so how about -=Bowel Blitzer=-

tona changes names a lot, so how about identitycrisis wanderas

i had actually thought of this some time ago, but wasnt sure if it could be done....
im trying to think of old regs names that once graced this server...perhaps Tona and others can help add to what i have so far :

Gizmo
**YODA**
Social Reciprocity
Red Wagon (i think this guy was also suffering from cancer...at least he said he was)
57Chevywagon (i think this is how he had his name ?!)
Malgeric (one of many who moved from the DHA server to join us here)


of course we should have the likes of :

Patches
Swanny
Carnivore
Specialist
SOS
Southern Cross


then we have ricks infamous incog name : Hoof Hearted

for those who were on TS many years ago, might remember the constant out burst/temper tantrum/cussing/rage quit .... Ewwing

if someone took the time, the list of members on this forum have so many that no longer play...although not all of them were constant regulars..

The "always BS" person I remember was T-BONE. Although it was in-game chat, since I wasn't in TeamSpeak.

No problemo bud. And Patches Bot will be the first on the list but I'd like to hear some community suggestions as to what we should name it.

I spent hours and hours and hours 1v1 with AIDS teaching him how to fight in an Apache.
He popped on the server for a brief visit not all that long ago.

I don't remember what it was now, but there was something wrong with his gameplay...

For what it's worth, he's been on after the legacy ban list was dropped. At least I'm thinking 1SK -- "one shot kill" -- is AIDS, in which case he was on the game server 10 months ago.

Oh this was very recently...May/June? On Bocage. I recognized his helo flying/fighting.
I almost think BOP banned him at some point...it's all foggy. But we used to all have a lot of fun back then on EA117.
