Commonly Used Abbreviations List

Postby adowell on Wed Dec 12, 2012 1:12 pm

There appears to be a often used lingo on walls, in game, and on the forums. It would be nice to have a list somewhere that will let people know what the short terms are... almost like a "texting" guide is.

Concise description:
One short term that I see is misused...
rt = Re-Try or is it Real-Time?

A few of the often used are:
gl = good luck
gla = good luck all
gg = good game

Specifics/Details:
Maybe just a quick list on the forum or a tab for the newbies to use, or the experienced ones to make sure they are all on the same page.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
This will also allow the newbies to learn the common courtesy associated with most games. I think it is good to always give luck, and concede the game with a good game.

Just a thought. There may even be a list and I didnt see it. I'm still fairly new.

Happy Conquering!

Is this really needed? I've had people ask me in game chat what something means and I tell them. I think I figured most of them out myself when I say hi hf at the top of every game I joined. I would think that either of these would be sufficient and less work for a newb than trying to find the forum post with common abbreviations.

No.

Considering my age and the ability to embarrass my kids easily just by walking into a room, I get the majority of them. Ones I don't, easy to look them up or ask. :lol:

If you are speaking of native english speaker you are probably right, but speaking of people from other country sometimes it's difficult to know.

LFMAO for example
FAMO is specific CC I also believe.

And recently someone asks me what means "wp".

Defintely useful to make that list !

I'm a fairly young guy (25), and I am usually pretty good with abbreviations and text talk... but some of them throw me for a loop and I have to think about it.

GLHF = good luck, have fun - i would have never got that one!

This seems to me to be the best solution. I'm not sure how often it will get used though. I still think most of these questions could or should get answered in LC or GC (livechat or gamechat :lol: )
