Hello and welcome to another Crap Name of the Week! I’ve trawled my archive of screenshots for another genius and unearthed this…
This week’s offering illustrates two problems; the use
of the letters “dk” at the end of names, and the use of the letters “dk” at the end of names of non-DKs.
Death Knights are of course commonplace now. Many of us know players who primarily play this class. Some people even like these players on a personal level. It’s just not as easy to automatically, irrationally hate those people as it was is the initial deluge of Pwnlulzdks and Irapeallyoosdks after the class’ introduction.
Fortunately, for those fuelled by an uncommon rage, there does seem to have been a spate of “-dk” naming for non-Death Knights. One common factor is that the word or words preceding
the “dk” are almost invariably crap, especially in combination with this suffix.
Magicdk here, was a priest. Priests use a form of magic, but sourced from the shadow or the light. Magic is primarily associated with … mages, with the arcane. So even the first part of this name is inappropriate for this character. A double-hitter!
a joke – not a good joke, of course. Either way, representing a whole class of terrible people, Magicdk – welcome to the gallery of twats.
