Well whats been some reproachful class nicknamesand positive class nicknames that you have run across so far?
in WoW the biggest MMO I played to date, there would be certain negative names attached to certain classes and specs.
And some of them were good names as well

 

Some to name a few.

 

*Warrior
positive == (none known)
Negative == Warios ( aka a Warrior in WvW with Condition spec or Great Sword. lol)

*Engineer
positive== Mr fix it (for the heals and buffs)
negatives== tool man taylor.

*Guardian
positive==Healadin (name comes from WoW which Guards play a similar support role in WvW)
negative==(none known)

     Never heard Warios. Warriors nickname has always been "wars".

    Also never heard those ones on Engineer you've mentioned. It is always either "Eng" or "bomberman".

    Also, Healadin is derogatory, implying that one can do not BUT heal.

    Some guy on my srver was calling thieves "roaches" in WvW the other day and everyone else quickly started using the term. Hasn't caught on otherwise, though :)

    I think the OP should play a warrior (or even just the game) before trying to be funny with nicknames.

    While condition damage is weak as for most classes in PvP/WvW, greatsword works just fine - it's just a matter of speccing correctly for it. Mind you, I'm greatsword/longbow for WvW and doing just fine.

    The only class/spec combo deserving a nickname is the heavy stealth specced thieves. I would call it "cowards". Basically the same kind of people who play PvP rogues in WoW - people afraid to die in PvP and playing the class with the most chances to escape death.

    Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2, The Crew, SotA

    Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.

    Mesmers == (negative) Hackers

    I kid, I kid. I have a mesmer. Someone in WvW complained that the enemy team was using "hax" because he was suddenly pulled in and fell off the tower. For those who are unaware and don't play mesmers, we have the 4th skill on our Focus that can activate a "pull".

    And also we have portals.

    distorting warrior in any way always makes me think of this:

    The more I'm around the forums on this site, the more bitter I become.
