View Full Version : Thinking of changing my callsign. Need opinions.

CRASH is my Navy Flight Callsign. It was given to me by my Air Crew Instructors in 1992. Said I looked like a Traincrash when I ran. They just dropped the "train" and the rest is history. People at work just call me Crash, so it's what I'm used to.

But lately in HL there are just too many posers. I'm getting tired of all the other Crash's. I was on Forgotten Server. TS_CRASH and VF-17_CRASH were in there. III/JG53*CRASH flies in War Clouds. 54th_Crash, 94th_Crash, and 334th_Crash all were in Ghost Skies. And don't forget BOA_Crash.

Just too many. The 2 in Forgotten Server with the capitol spelling was the straw that broke my back.

I really don't want to. But I feel compelled to. I can't stand being one of 7 or more guys with the same name. It cheapens it for me. I'll keep my Navy callsign... cause I don't have a choice... But for the game, I'm thinking I need something unique.

So, even though I'm sure I'll get flamed, I'd like your help in deciding if this is something I should do.


P.S. I have no idea what the change would be. Maybe "Ace"?

Ya keep it. We won't confuse you with those other crashes. CRASH will always be CRASH. And... the name fits you too well.

You can pick almost any name you want and unless it's really wierd or unusual you will see others people using it too. Start using ace and you'll just see a bunch of guys named ace flying around.

I don't know how many guys out there are called Shadow, but I run into them all the time. I've been using Shadow for 15 years now. I don't plan on changing it. Often wonder what made them choose the name.

01-21-2005, 07:22 AM
My opinon..................DON'T.

I became Beebop when I joined my first squad.

Why Beebop?

Bebop was a relatively new form of jazz back in the early 40's and popular with younger "avant garde" music affciandos. Being a musican muself it seemed to fit in with this sims era. I try and fly using the number 54 because it represents 5/4 time, a common jazz time signature.

I've continued to use it because I feel it defines me in a way.

I think you should keep your callsign. You received it from the real world of flight unlike many of us who just made something up. It has a history and was not given to you for your flight skills but as a friendly jibe at a personal quirk of yours.
I would be proud to use a callsign I had been given by my peers. In that respect you are a lucky one.

Just my opinion.

Hey crash! My primary advice would be to keep your handle. You should be flattered that so many posers wanna emulate. The people that matter to you know the difference, and F all the rest.

But if you are determined to change your handle I think your new moniker should have something to do with "Joker" or "Jester". I for one have enjoyed your dry sense of humor and think your new handle should reflect this aspect of your personality!

Good luck pal!

Well, I'm another Crash. My elementary school librarian used to tell stories of a barnstormer named 'Crash Moses' who gave free rides to children in the town where she grew up in the 1930's. I adopted the name when I first got into flight sims and I've been using it for the last 20 years.

However, 'Crash', in and of itself, isn't exactly original considering the nature of combat flight sims in general, but you obviously have some history behind it and I think you should keep it. I personally like the way you've highlighted 'CRASH' with the x's on either end (wish I'd thought of that). That, by itself, makes it unique. Keep it! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Crash, be grateful you got a navy call-sign like that in the first place...

In the RAF call-signs are allocated according to aircraft, sqdn etc. Random. This means they're all a lot less serious about their "call sign" on their jacket.

If they ever get into US airspace, they have to start using that.

Now I know a chap, surname rhymes with *ock - therefore he was 'given' Small *ock as his flight suit name!

I'm just waiting for a tower to call...!

Just keep it! I've been called Toad ever since I was a small boy. No sense fighting it. Besides its a big world and a fast selling CD and alot of people joining in. There has to be doubles triples. Heck if we look I bet we can find someone that even looks like you, around here. I read once no matter who you meet they can be no more than your 15th cousin. So just how many family member share your real name?

It's You Man!

I feel your pain. I hate going to any kind of server and seeing 20 people named "ace" or "hawk" or god knows what. They have no imagination. If you don't want to use crash you should come up with something very origional.

Back in the day I was obsessed with the origional Starseige game. I used the name "Cybrid" for a long time to come. Not only was that a rare name but it left the masses scratching their heads. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Keep it bro. Call signs make the man. I've never met ya nor have I heard spoken word from you but I have a clear picture in my head of what your all about. If ya change the name I'll be lost.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

A few notable call signs from my Naval Air days. All were Whale drivers.

Skag - notorious for dragging the *** end of the bird on trap.

Sparks - had a habit of boltering whenever we were in bingo range of Cubi Point.

Cosmo - spacy kind of lad. Made sure my koch fittings were cinched every time I flew with him.

NoNose - bird strike king of the squadron.

And a host of others. I think about them from time to time. Always with a smile on my face.

Crash If I had a Dollar for every Viper that was out there id be rich. Stick with it man people know you as your handle dont let them discourage you.

Viper was my callsign in the Marine Corps. Our Hawk Missle Batteries were each given a main callsign and each individual was given a callsign so as not to confuse anyone else.

Stick with it man.

let's assemble a "Witch-hunt crew" and we can scan the boards, hyperlobby games etc, until we find the culprits.
Then we can gather the gas, matches, and Cher's greatest hits CD, and start the party!

The Cher CD would be crule and unusual.



I like the idea!

I like the original callsign and would keep it, however if you have to change there are similar words:

CRUSH ? (Crash is under pressure)

CRUNCH ? (Crash is eating cornflakes)

CRASS ? (Crash is being rude)

CARESS ? (Crash is getting *****)
