looked up vanoss on mobile but typo'd it as vankss and thought it was cool and changed it to vanxi cause apparently there was already someone named vankss in some other gaming community

i was a WoW player before i ever touched an fps game, and i always thought the raid boss "Patchwerk" from naxxramas had a cool name, so when i first started playing fps i went originally by "kubs" but i didn't really care for it, around this time i started playing wow again, and came across the name patchwerk again, so my alias was born.

TLDR: my name comes from a WoW raid boss and not a copy of clockwork, like people think. :)

i65 ama12 year old me wanted to make a YouTube channel about the xbox360 vs ps3 vs Wii called ConsoleWarsGamer bc I was a Nintendo fan and wanted to point out Nintendo fucks. Carried through as my username on steam when I discovered competitive tf2 and downloaded the game. Shortened to TF2Console when I started helping host pugs and got interested in moving up from UGC to ESEA, and went to Console- because everyone just called me Console- in pugs and I had friends that put dashes in their name for stylizing.

Came out as trans, shifted from Console- to Connie :)

my alias is because my name is hugh, which starts the same way hubris does, so its hugh hubris. here though its this stupid thing because i didnt want to put in hugh hubris. sometimes i shorten it to hu or something. i like it stylized as hu better, it can mean hubris or hugh and people call me both. hubris is why my old pfp was some dude with a large brain to go with the theme, although now its a racoon wearing a bandana lol.
