First of all, my name IS NOT FROM TEEN WOLF! I've had so many people ask me if it's from that stupid show, and it isn't. Wolfsbane is one of the deadliest poisons on the planet, and the 1s are for the single drop of Wolfsbane it can take to kill a person. It was used extensively in Ancient Japan by the Ninjas as a weapon.

My username is also my Minecraft username. 


Flashback to 2011. Minecraft is growing in popularity. I started making papercrafts (little fold-up paper models) and sold them at school so I could buy Minecraft. I sold a few life-size Nether Stars, a diamond sword, and a fully articulated Herobrine. I has 22 dollars, enough to buy the game. 


On the bus home, sitting next to my then-friend, Breanna. I asked her what I should use as my username. She knew my nickname at the time was "Pixel" because I used to make all of the school's powerpoints because I was so good at it, and I always used the pixelate transition. She said it should start with "Pixel." I tried to think of something unique, as my previous usernames for Roblox were "herobryan" and "Applegeek." 


I threw random words out, and eventually I said "Pixel-Bucket." We both agreed that it was catchy, so that's the username that stuck.


Come 2014, I'm discovering WoTB, and in creating my account, instead of coming up with something completely different, I stuck with PixelBucket. I considered at one point changing it to "RazorTheFox", but never could afford to, and now if I were to change it, my clan name wouldn't make sense.

My Top Tanks: Lowe (#880), Type 61 (#834), Helsing H0 (#797), Pz. S35 739 (#778), ARL 44 (#661), T7 Car (#654), STB-1 (#502), MT-25 (#442), Excelsior (ironically(#422), M22 Locust (#322), T23E3 (#223), Pz. 38 (t) nA (#211), Alecto (#197), Pz 35 (t) (#168),

T-25 (#166), Stridsvagn 74A2 (#151), Angry Connor (#63!), T-15 (#50!), Pz. 38 (t) (#31!)

In My Garage: T-25, Tetrarch, Pz 38 (t), Pz 35 (t),  SU-122-44, Helsing H0, Kuro Mori Mine, Pz IV Anko SP, E 50 M, T7 Car, T2 Light, Locust, T-15, Stridsvagn 74A2, T23E3, Angry Connor, Lowe, Leopard 1, 112, STB-1, AMX M4 45, Type 61, WT Auf Pz IV, T28 Proto

I've been getting a few questions recently about why my username is _34. So, I became curious to see why other people have chosen theirs.


I chose the number 34 for a few reasons:

-The rows, columns and diagonals of a 4x4 magic square add up to 34

-The word 'devil' is used in the Bible 34 times (hehehe this is post #666)

-34 is a Fibbonaci number (google it)

-Dante's Inferno consists of 34 songs


So, how about you guys? Comment below!

2x2: 8.xx

OH: 30.xx

4x4: 1:45

Oh nevermind, wrong forum.

One day, when I was only 10 years old, I liked watching Minecraft youtubers and wanted to become one.


Partly a reference to SkyDoesMinecraft, but I was never interested in him.


And then when I joined in 2014, with the help of my friends, I quickly made an account linked to my Game Center! :D

Considering the game I thought the title 'the adversary' was fitting. Of course to the holier than I religous zealots its their boogie man and therefore its use is banned in chat.

My name is Daniel.

Sparten was an attempt to be spelled Spartan but I used to be a small kid and made an account on Minecraft. My username ended up as danielsparten. The word "Sparten" was inspired by my favorite characters in Halo which notably was Master chief or Spartan 117. So I ended up having my name mashed with "Sparten" only to find out that I spelled Spartan wrong but I figure it seems unique and different than having my name with "DanielSpartan." it's mostly my username and gamer name sometimes being different with "DanielSparta" or "xX_DanielSparten_Xx" as some names are taken and some only allow certain amount of characters.
