    Question Do you have your own name shown in (options).

    Hey there,

    I was wondering, do you have your own name shown with the option to enable that?

    Personaly i dont, but i have a few friends that have that and find it strange without.

    I dont have it because default doenst enable that.

    Also made a poll.

    Vote!

    Cheers!

    Yes.

    I suppose I don't have any particular reason, I just have always had it visible. I like seeing my character as others see her.

    I have ALL names off, NPCs even, except when targeted. Really helps with immersion.

    Neh, I don't need to see my own name. I kind of know it.
    Arguing with a troll is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter what you do or say, he will just knock over the pieces, take a shit on the board and strut around like he won the whole damn thing.

    Turn almost all names off, makes things look so much cleaner.

    I have all names turned on. Do not know why though I always had it that way.

    I have names + titles turned on, but no guild name turned on for me and everyone else. It's clean enough for me without the guild tag and I like actually seeing the title that I have turned on.

    I have all names (NPC and Player) turned off unless they're being targeted. I get more information from health bars rather than names. I PvP mostly now and when people call a target it's easier to say "Kill the shadow priest!" and see their health bar (addon color-codes them by class) rather than "Kill Kigdaggedon", for example, and you're sitting there looking for a name. I've been playing that way for years however, regardless of PvE or PvP focus.



    PS, Rivellana, I love your signature. :3

    I know my own name and what guild im in, i dont need to be reminded of that all the time.

    i have it on so that i can see titles and things - as it annoys me when people have really long titles under their names, so in order to make sure i dont fall foul of a new title being applied without noticing, i like to keep my name visible.

    thats about the only real reason i have for it
    where's the goddamned ESO sub forum?

    I have all names, titles, etc. turned off. I have enemy name plates on though, of course, but friendlies? Don't care, don't need to know.

    Besides I can recognise most of my guildies by their transmog sets anyway. And obviously, I know who I am. :P

    no, it's stupid.

    I have my own name turned off as i don't see a reason for it to be shown, I mean I know what my name is. I also have friendly players titles turned off, don't need that clutter on my screen.

    i'm inclined to agree, I can't see what the point is having your own name over your head as you're running around. I have NPC names and mob names on, but having my own name on just seems... pointless

    I have all names off, I always have since way back when I found I could get a few extra FPS in mass world PVP by having them off.

    Nope. I don't like seeing my name. For more immersion I've been debating turning it off completely.

  19. #19
    Yes, for no other reason than I've never bothered to turn it off
