  • Does my name confuse you guys as well?

    Solarity sounds a lot like Celerity. Which in this game can add to a bit of confusion. I came up with the name in wow and I liked it because I normally suck at thinking of names. I got the name as I like astronomy and sol = sun. So I just threw something at the end of it to give it a cool sounding name. I use to use the tag Hostage as I would sometimes get someone to hesitate shooting me in CS when they saw the word "Hostage". (Squirrel moment)

    ...Anyway when I am ADD'ing out in the game on Alien and I hear someone say celerity I sometimes think they are referring to me. It is a bit of a let down when someone says Celerity is awesome or I love celerity, only to realize they are speaking of the ability :(

    Random Thoughts,

    Don't worry so much. If you like your name stick with it. I would suggest you might be over thinking it a tad :).

          My name is a bit long to say while gaming (what? 7 syllables?), but most people shorten it to Cing (pronounced 'sing') when trying to spit it out in the middle of some gaming action. Perhaps we should shorten your name to 'Sol' when in-game?

            I think your name is cool. Keep it!

            3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

              +1 for keeping. Celerity will fall forgotten into history. Our great-grandchildren will sing songs about Solarity.

                    I find this comment mildly amusing mainly due to the name of the person posting it.

                    I have to admit, pubbing in NS2 has created a whole new level of weirdness when it comes to my name. Fen-icks no longer bothers me, but I've been called "The" for short a few times since this game launched, like "Hey, The, you're a pretty good lerk, go X and hold them off." I have no idea who they're talking to, then everyone starts yelling at me for chewing faces on the other side of the map.

                      Keep it, it is very easy to remember and in 14 years of online gaming I don't recall anything too similar.
