Huh don't really have friends that can game online as much as I do so I never had a preference. I would like some for friends so this can become a problem for me. Don't get me wrong I have friends, they just don't game as much as me.

Usually prefer my game name, but that can get really confusing in a TS with people from different games cause I don't use the same name everywhere.

do you want people to prefer to as you game handle or your real name.
I make it a point on teamspeak to make my handle my real name and when people on my team I'm playing with on TS are using my ingame name to tell them I prefer for them to call me Ashley (my real name) instead of my game handle.
The only time I ever let people used my ingame name was back on a plat league team 2 years ago when they would all call me Halo which was my game handle at that time.
I have started to think about not using Ashley anymore just to abvoid questions because in todays world on diffrent teamspeaks I get tons of private messages asking if I prefer to be referred to as a boy or girl because due to my girlish name people think I'm transgender. I am not.


I tend to get called by my game name unless i add someone to my Skype then names become more personal normally i liked being called Joshy i even got my name badge at work to read Joshy. In game the only one who comes close to calling me by my name is my brother and he just calls me bro normally sometimes Joshy.

I only play co-op games and those I game with I've known for a few years now so we address each other with our real names.

In my Discord for my HEX TCG Clan I am either called Random or Jen. On twitch everyone calls me Random.

My real name sounds like a gamertag/in-game name, so I just go with whatever people want to call me. Commonly, I'm called "Endy" (nickname of my real name).

I prefer my ign because I'd rather not have strangers knowing much about me. Though there are a few game friends I've known for a long time that I don't mind. But for the most part people just call me by my ign.

I usually prefer my real name since I find it weird to be called by my ingame name
