THEN WHY NOT CALL THEM SNs?
They call 'em rogues. They travel fast and alone.

The first time I was exposed to this community I really did get confused, thinking there was some big discussion hub on IGN or something >>
Don't get why it's used instead of screen name / SN, username / whatever. It's not like anyone's gonna ask for their "OGN"

I dunno, maybe because IGN is universally used.

SNs = Just LoL

IGNs = Every game where you can pick a name

Because my IGN is very different from any of my SNs

Screen Names are more generic and can apply to anything like gamefaqs or youtube, whereas IGN refers specifically to what you are called in the game.
