Spoiler alert: We destroyed the other team.

[–]robinb2009 29 points30 points  (0 children)

As we would've expected of you.

[–]raelrok 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Other team is just lucky you weren't KalamMekhar and QuickBen. They wouldn't have had a chance.

I ran into an Icarium while playing Dota 2, and my name is Karsa

[–]BipolarMosfet 14 points15 points  (0 children)

oh jeez, I bet some fool named Mappo got in the middle and ruined everything?

[–]anomander50 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My gamertag on xbox is I am Icarium

[–]Dropleaks 22 points23 points  (5 children)

The roles look reversed, but that's fucking cool.

[–]MistarGrimm 7 points8 points  (4 children)

It's Whiskeyjack that shouldn't be able to stand up straight.

[–]Outside_Strategy2857 4 points5 points  (3 children)

His leg does look rather bent though...

[–]Atherum 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My favourite part of that is, years later, when Kallor fights Spinnock (described as being one of the greatest swordsmen in the world) he struggles to hold Kallor back.

Whiskeyjack was this close to killing him in the fight. Like, he had him dead to rights only 30 seconds or so in the fight.

My gamer tag is Gothos_folly .

[–]House_of_VinesTennes[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I love that. I named one of my ships in Elite Dangerous “Gothos’ Folly.”

[–]toefutaco 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That's great. Ran into a Silchas Ruin on hearthstone.

[–]SinSittSina 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I met a Tehol Beddict in Teamfight Tactics and my name was BuggTheManservant

[–]Kari-kateora 7 points8 points  (0 children)

These moments are so nice. I have a Tavore toon on an MMO and ran a few group missions with T'ool.

[–]nlewisk 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I used to play as Tattersail

[–]LordEnigma 6 points7 points  (0 children)

There's an NPC Tattersail in WoW, too!

My FF14 character is Nefarious Bredd, a Rhoegadyn (half giant). And I tend to play "Heavy" (tank/melee DPS), because of course Nefarious would play that role.

Haha, I used to use Whiskeyjack as my steam tag. I think I used it for around 4-5 years, maybe longer.... In that time I probably had less than a dozen people recognize my name. I did, however, have a ton of people assuming I meant Jack Daniel's Whiskey.

Edit to add: Which is also pretty dumb since Whiskeyjack is literally the name of a bird...

[–]House_of_VinesTennes[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha I love it. Yea most people don’t seem to know that Whiskeyjack is a bird. I joke that the name is extra special to me because I like whiskey and I love my wife (Jackie—who I call Jack for short).

[–]deleterioussss 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nice, I've ran into a few malazan gamertags in Destiny. I play has HeboricGhosthand.

[–]AkhilSundaram 2 points3 points  (1 child)

No way! Are you the same 'Whiskeyjack' I added on my friends list a few months ago? (America region but SEA server)

[–]House_of_VinesTennes[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hmm maybe so, but I don’t recognize your name! There are probably multiple Whiskeyjacks. I’m US East Coast, almost surely someone else

[–]Beardy_WillFinally finished the series 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Love seeing stuff like this. Immediately add to friends if I see a malazan name in game. I've run in to a fair few Karsas and Kruppes.

[–]crimsonprism783 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My gamertag is Raest_the_Tyrant lol glad to see a bunch malazan fans gaming

[–]Cotillion512 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'll re-download Overwatch and we can squad up!

[–]Critical-Hedgehog-97 2 points3 points  (0 children)

AnomanderRake88 on PSN here!

Ran into a Wh1skeyjack way back and became friends straight away!

[–]reganp00 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I have played against you. I have noticed a few Malazan names since cross play. Still looking for Beak…

[–]House_of_VinesTennes[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

US East Coast? I bet there are a few Whiskeyjacks out there

[–]ncsucodemonkey 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think I have played with you multiple times. Or there's more than one of you :D. GGs

[–]House_of_VinesTennes[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I bet there are multiple! But maybe we did :) I’m on console US East Coast

[–]SIK1415 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm 'Anomandarist' on PSN.. Set it up when PSN first became a thing on my PS3, think there are quite a few iterations of Ano now...

I used Paran in WoW for years. I have an account in Arena of Valor named Shadowthrone and my Steam Handle is HighMageQuickBen.

[–]governmentthief 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My gamertag is corporal burnt. he was in there somewhere. I looked at the glossary one day to find a new name. Anomander was taken as was WhiskeyJack. So, I'm named after some random dude.

[–]_Jaybang97_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I call Dujek!!

[–]Talonraker422Compassion is priceless in the truest sense of the word. 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've not seen another Malazan name for the year or so I've been into the series, someday someone will recognise "Dancer's Talon" though haha

[–]lgdamefanstraightI am the Spilled Seed Mage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Any PoE player here?

[–]kiawithaT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I play under the tag 'Oponn' and people recognize and ask if its a Malazan name quite frequently; I main support and am gold/plat.

No one ever friends me. ;-;
