It works when a few players have them, but when you have Rob Walker giving literally every player a nickname, it just sounds false.
Yeah I agree with this. You should have to earn your nickname and it should also be somewhat relevant to you.
For example I preferred “when he’s good he’s On Fire” Stephen Maguire to Stephen The Maverick Maguire because it spoke to his fiery temper.
Enter The Dragon Ding Junhui feels mildly racist to me especially since Ding’s personality couldn’t be further from that of a dragon. But hey he’s Chinese so let’s root his nickname in that because it’s the only recognisable thing about him, right?
