I have 4 IGNs:
> 将軍 (Shogun)
> Puri-puri <3
> Vlan Tross (Present)
This nick name when I entered the world of online games and social media. When I came up this ign since 12 years from various Japanese online games and the origin is not planed as I expected, just randomly picked that.
After 3 years, I decide to change my ign for a new forum that I joined, this ign sounds very funny in different perspective, and I joined foreign communities just for killing my boredom. Just for the lols.
When I stumble CS:S for the first time so I decided for a cool foreign nick name. Good old days, It's kind of nostalgic to hear that nick name again. It has good memories. And that time that I decide to be a modder which I only make weapon skins, and turns out fine. I joined a Russian modding community which it is nowhere to be found today. I met some Russian players and make friends. One of the nicest Russian players I met, quite rare today*. They mentioned me that they want to make my Russian like ign, and so I came this name called-------
Vlan Tross (Present)
Long story short, 4 years spending on a Russian modding community and I came up this ign for a successful community and carve it to a monolith of that community. "Vlan" has a story, which I call it "successful" which I just defined it that way. And "usefulness" which the modding community defined not me. And today still using that ign because It has good memories that delights me the most.
