    Amm, same reason why singers use their stage names instead of their real names? Not difficult to understand.

    mystery announcer? so... its going to be a woman, and then someone who identifies as a deer.
    The signal virtue that this company does now is worse than how they are treating their current retail game.
    So, sad to see.

    Take a print screen on this comment and look at it after the summer. Then, if you feel like this is the person you want to be. Go all in. But hopefully you'll see what you look like from another perspective and grow the f up lol.

    People still call Dwayne Johnson "The Rock," so it's not just the gaming community.
