Having lurked in these forums for a couple of weeks, I have learned quite a lot to better my gameplay. Early on I read about "glass cannons", which helped me lot, for example. Nevertheless, as you can see below, I might have misconstrued a few terms, because the discussions here tend to be laden with words, which for me as a kinda noob, can be difficult to comprehend. Anyway, here's, what I've got so far.
TOON - "character", word seemingly coming from the game publisher and never used by the developers
MOLASSES - toon which is very slow despite buffs and synergies
GLASS CANNON - toon with superior offensive power, but very fragile
CUPCAKE - non threatening toon, that gets spared for last, like Chewy or Barriss Toffee
NERF - decrease of effectiveness or "buff"
BUFF - increase of effectiveness or "nerf"
OP - "it is like, 'only Poe' was", "overpowered"
JC - da man himself. Everybody's friend and refuge, especially during times of Galactic War.
REZ - resurrection of a fallen combatant during battle
BOT - assumption that Mol Eliza teams in Squad Arena are not actual user accounts
STRATEGY - "have this(!) character!! And then press the attack button!!! BOOM! TOTAL META CHANGE!!!!"
META - frequent usage of this word often indicates a person roused by fondness of themselves to the dire need to tell other people about their Squad Arena team
NEW / CURRENT META - about the Squad Arena part of the game, void of intellectually meaningful considerations
META CHANGE - minor superficial alterations, without any change on an abstract level whatsoever
TESTING - playing the game, while dreaming up non existent correlations
IMPOSSIBLE - "improbable" or "feces"
ALWAYS - "occasionally" or "in this specific instance only"
DROP RATE - catalyst for wild imaginations
RNG - according to happy folks, "Fortuna", permanent stealth toon, Nightsister of Chance. Or according to others, "publisher malfeasance"
PROBABILITY THEORY - something utterly useless.
STOCHASTIC - dirty word, which circumvents netiquette nicely or sometimes not at all. who knows?
ONE SHOT - short but satisfying experience of a stochasm
In the forums of the other game I frequent (and have played for years) the favored term is "Wallet Warrior", which is catchy & the name says it all; I'll probably carry over to these boards.
In Game Name: E Chu Ta
WHALE - from casino language for "really huge spender"
DOLPHIN - somebody spending less than thousands of $$
PLANKTON - players religiously spending not a single penny
P2W - "pay to win" , usage of this word usually indicates bitterness and/or envy
P2P - "pay to play" label for those who realized, that there ain't no such thing as a free lunch
F2P - "free lunch to the people", an inalienable right of every whiner on earth
EA - "Electronic Artists" nonprofit organization of likeminded, free spirited digital arts aficionados for global peace and understanding
CG - "Capital Gains", nicknamed "Colden Goose" ;-)
GG - "General Grievous", character name, which is so true and real that it hurts many forum members to write it. Hence the ubiquitous abbreviation. (nota bene: Not to be confused with the following two)
JJ - "Jeffrey Jacob" , intern, who was responsible for Poe being OP
GS - "Geonosian Soldier", toon that is easily accessible and farmable. Speedy with assist attack and useful in many team setups. He even got an ugly mug like GG! What's not to like?
GENERAL DISCUSSION - Full of brutal attacks that cut down reasonable arguments, while protecting themselves with forced logic taunts
GRANDMASTER YODA - still a rare sight. Met him once in Arena, I panicked and activated assassin protocol, he immediately left, not with fireworks but a fizzle
FOGEY - British, humorous for "old school"
VAGUE - what people tell you about their gaming before SWGOH
WIND - indicates underpowered attack capability
NOODLE - same as above, comes from observing Barriss Offee's attack animation, where her light saber bends like a wet noodle
DPS - "damage points" -yes? Still not sure.
SNIP - indicates either an act of intervention or self censorship (very much appreciated anyway, I mean it)
that was funny
Thank You, didn't know that one :v
Yes, thanks. The point of the OP was to define the jargon, not define jargon.
Anything starting with FO is First Order...primarily FOTP for the Tie Pilot.
CUP - Needful abbreviation for the needlessly long Coruscant Underworld Police
Tic or Tick-- Refers to the increasing of a character's turn meter as each character takes an action. Less common since the Speed change in the last major update. (The turn meters still tick, though.)
Personally I hate GG since everyone outside SWGOH uses that for good game.
