why does he call champions funny names? gangplank=pirate, amumu=mummy, brand=blaze and twisted fate=cardmaster.

only reason i ask is because i saw him type "CM ult to gank" and i know if someone ever typed that on my team i would be so confused.

are those the names in like the eu servers or something?

its just a stupid question i guess haha

TreeEskimo plays US and I guess he just calls them strange names because he feels like it. Personally I've never heard "brand=blaze" but I know that he calls Anivia "cryophoenix" or just "cryo", Gangplank "pirate", Amumu "mummy", etc, etc. I guess it's just a habit of his. Maybe it's some alpha thing.

I think those are also the dev names for the characters too. The older ones anyway.
Sig courtesy of GrandmasterD. Go get your own sig from them. :D

if you look at the champ images in the assets folder, alot of the older files are named by a champs subtitle. For example, ashe's images are all names frostarcher_x (number). Most likely dev names that stuck around as subtitles. Luckily they don't do that anymore because it makes it really difficult to look for a champ not listed by their actual name.

Lol, when uninstalling some custom skins it can confuse me, since, for example, Warwick is called wolfman, Renekton is called dragonflies (lolwut), and Singed is chemicalman.


I make sigs, PM me if you want one :D (Thanks for the Nidalee sig, The_Nameless_Bard!)

Ya, those are almost all dev names I think (which makes sense as he IS an intern now).


Thanks to The Nameless Bard and Vavena for the sigs!

Twisted Fate IS the Card Master... just look at the champs full name & title (Twisted Fate the Card Master)

Yea if you look in your characters folders that's the names that they'll be listed under. I guess he just goes by that.

Pirate, Mummy, and Cryopheonix, along with "bear" (tibbers) and Cardmaster are the names of the characters in the client folder and are used by a lot of higher ELO players because it's fun and it makes them feel cool :s.

I.E. "Dark Champion", guess that one.

And her character folder is Bowmaster :S

It's pretty funny.
