Off topic, but the name comes from a character I had when I played WoW. The name was longer than 'Ames', but eventually it got shortened to it, and when I server transferred I went ahead with the new name. It's stuck ever since. Also, the reference to 'RiotGames' makes me chuckle.
On topic: I don't think 'gg' is rude, and I've never had a bad reaction to it. 'gg noobs' or something similar is a different matter entirely, but if they said that without the 'noobs' part, it'd be just as insulting, right?
