I was impersonated last night.

    Last night I was running TSDe with a player who is a fairly popular streamer on Twitch and a fairly well known player around the game and somebody decided to create a character with a name that looked like mine but with a different combination of "I"s and "L"s and apparently was harassing her. I have no idea what they said but understandably, she and some of her friends fired back at me in her defense. Personally, I'm a grown a** man and outgrew toxic behavior a long, long time ago. I also no longer have a capacity or interest in even dealing with toxic situations so I just declared that I never sent anything and left the raid. I've got better things to do.

    Immediately after I tried to add every name that could look like mine but with different "I"s and "L"s. Most if not all didn't exist but one did and they were online at that time.

    I'm not sure if it was later talked about or how many people were given the impression that I acted that way towards her. I just wanted to say on here that it was not me. Honestly, thinking about it now I'm surprised it's taken this long for something like this to happen given my characters name and the countless shenanigans pulled in this game utilizing uppercase "i"s and lowercase "L"s. The devs really should look in to changing the game's primary font. But yeah, just wanted to put this out there.

    Have a good day everybody.

    That used to be a thing in WT n HoD. If you didn't like a player or you wanted to prank them really bad you'd copy their styles and maybe put a Jr beside the name and pretend your their long lost child or whatever. Used to be pretty funny but I can see not much for the intended victim though :D

    You used to be able to put a certain amount of spaces in your message and a "Name>" that could make it look like someone was saying something they weren't directly after your line, which was also pretty funny in certain circumstances.

    I would kind of assume if the guy was being a PITA, the streamer would have ignored them and that would have been done so off the 'recent text' option, not off just looking at the name and typing what they THINK it is. If you then can send an email in game saying, "BTW...that guy in your stream being a PITA was not me"...and it gets through...it wasn't you. Seems a more direct resolution to the situation than posting here.

    But good luck with it.
