In-game name. And if it's voice comms, call everyone else by their character name as well.

I've healed in raids where someone would say "Heal Martin", to which the only answer is "Who is Martin?" and it turns out Martin is xxSexyTailxx the Drenai huntress. And dead, because the health bars didn't have a "Martin" on the list of names.

My friends who I met online call me different variations of my game name and friends I know in real life refer to .e by my first name or one of several nicknames I have obtained.

I prefer my game name, Mask for everything. It makes me seem edgy and mysterious... :ph34r:

My name for games has always been my nickname which is "Mimi," if it's taken, I go by "MimiMango." I don't put numbers on my username. They're for skrubs

Most people call me by my Team Speak name, but I'll tell my closer internet friends to just call me Noah but they still prefer to call me my TS name.

game name. if i'm playing with my real life friend, 1 on 1 then we call eachother by real names. but i prefer my game name, Larkspur. i use it almost all the time (even here). sometimes i play with a different name to stay annon.
i find if i tell them my actual name, it's like a barrier is lifted and my socially anxious self hits. behind the handle, i can be confident.

I guess it depends who i'm playing with, if its friends from real life then they use my name, if its in game people then its the in game name.

I would say my ingame one because it has the word dude in it so they usually just call me dude. Unless I know them in real life then I don't care.

I don't really have a preference. Most people I meet online will call me by my gamertag, but a large chunk of my gaming is done with my real life friends and they'll call me by my real name, except for one... He's even called me by my gamertag a few times in real life, which I've found amusing.
