In the Internet world, ID is an important part of our identity. In games and professional competitions, the importance of players’ID can also be seen. It is said that the facade of players can not be overstated. So how do professional players get their ID names? Next, I will introduce the origin of the ID of some LCK players.
Name is ID
Representatives: KZ. Naehyun, HLE. Moojin, AF. Kiin, etc. These players use their names as their IDs, which is the easiest way to get IDs.
ID carrying the wish
Representatives: DWG. Showmaker, SKT. Crazy, etc. They turned their wishes into ID. One wanted to create more Showtime in the game, and the other wanted to be a crazy player.
Destiny is ID
Representatives: SKT. Mata, GEN. CuVee, SKT. Blank, etc. The above players use their favorite characters or characters as their ID names. SKT. Mata’s ID originated from his favorite Spanish football player Juan Mata. GEN. CuVee’s ID was Chubby in his favorite animation “Little Magic Girl Round.” Once SKT. Blank’s ID was inspired by Taylor Swift’s song “Blank”.
Representatives: SKT. Clid, GEN. Fly, JAG. Lindarang, etc. The above contestants thought that their names did not have any special meaning, but they thought they read them smoothly, so they took the ID. But I want to introduce the JAG. Lindarang player in particular. In the interview, he mentioned that the ID originated from a Chinese TV play he watched when he was a student, and should originate from Linda Lang, the hero of “Shanghai Pie Sweet Heart”.
ID that corresponds to your character’s image
Representatives: SKT. Khan, KZ. Deft, GRF. Tarzan, etc. SKT’s Khan player ID comes from a kind of fruit in Khan’s hometown. Deft means “skilled, agile” in English, and it fits well with Deft’s image. Tarzan is the ape we are familiar with, Mount Tai, meaning: the king of the wilderness.
Representatives: former SKT. Bang, GEN. Ruler, etc. The IDs of the above two players are recommended by others, Bang’s ID is recommended by his friends, and Ruler’s ID is recommended by previous supervisors.
