The first time was newbie charm. This time, not so much. :thumbsupsmiley: Your shock paddles didn't bring it back this time.

OLD SIG
When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.

One of my own that others keep adopting as well:

Toodle - mainly RPG's - the act of wandering while seeking treasure/items/people or just generally taking a look around undisturbed. It is very aggravating to be aggro'd every 3 seconds while toodling.

Lol, I am an Oblivion toodler, then. ;) I spent a total of twelve hours as one character just wandering the West Weald, discovering fuck-everything. I hadn't even done the rest of the map, but I'd already found like 200 places.


Then I accidentally deleted my save, earning me Dick Of The Day award for that day.

And that's why you do the 'Anvil parkour' glitch! Toodling without actually encountering monsters is awesome. The more you know. ;) *annoying chimes*

If the Anvil Parkour is what I think it is, you also commonly get loading errors. The more you know ;) *chime*

hers one..
tea bagging..used in FPS
a non verbal insult/taunt to a player who has been killed by another player. the killer stands over the killed persons face and presses crouch several times. this action looks like the player is applying his genitils/balls into the dead persons face, basically saying "i'm fucking better than you" and "you suck hard at this game"

Various Red Alert 2 abbreviations:

Deso- Abbreviation for the Soviet Iraqi Desolator, a radiation trooper.

Desobomb- A common tactic used by Iraq players against Allied Mirage tanks and other Soviet players. The player loads up 5 Desolators in a Flak Track and sends them to the enemy, where the Flak Track will deploy/be killed. Then the Desolators will deploy and hopefully destroy the opposing force, meaning it is a 'bomb' so to speak.

Mirages- Mirage Tanks en masse.

Sovwar- A free for all or a battle game with all the sides picking a Soviet side (usually Iraq) see [Iraqwar]

Iraqwar- A more focused description with all the sides forced to play as Iraq.

TOE- The most played map on Yuri's Revenge, and despised by the 'pro'/average players of Yuri's Revenge. People who play this game are seen as [Tour noobs].

Tour noob- A person who plays Tour of Egypt or hosts this game with crates on are seen as 'new' or 'noob' (TOE has a higher concentration of crates), and develops rules which are despised by 'pro' and average players. This includes no superweapons, selling of Yuri and France because it interrupts the camp on the hills and because of Mags and Grand Cannons, the spending of the entire game getting 100 or so Prism Tanks all elite, several BF's with Boris and Desolators inside all elite with the BF elite as well turning it into an unstoppable machine, no rushes until the first [gap] or 10-30 mins which lasts even longer due to the fact no sane player is ever going to attack them with that sheer amount of massed force.

Gap- Gap Generator used to hide bases from radar and generate shroud over a small area.

Mag/Mags/Megatron- Sometimes used to refer to the Magnetron with huge imbalance qualities see [juggling tanks] and which can also instant kill tanks by dropping them onto a cliff, on a refinery, on base buildings, in water or on a tree/rock. Megatron, although rare is taken from the infamous Transformers villain and is used to express it's ability.

Juggling tanks- A trick used by Yuri players seen as an abuse which ends up with them flamed as a [Yuri noob], which is when tanks are completely sent up in the air, stopped and the next tank is targetted, which ends up with those tanks uncontrollable by the player. Sometimes tanks end up immobilised with a giant purple beam just hovering on the tanks, where the player sends reinforcements in the form of mind control or [gats]/[lashers].

Drone- Terror Drone, not to get confused with the Chaos drone simply called [Chaos]

Drone Rush- A flak track with a drone inside designed to fool the enemy into parking near it's [MCV] to show it's an [Engi IFV rush] (sometimes it is but just a drone packed in with it). When the MCV moves to prevent being captured, the drone leaps into action and jumps inside the MCV ensuring easy victory. Players are then flamed as [noobs].

Chaos- Chaos Drone

UFO/Discs- Yuri's floating disc.

Imba- Imbalance or cheese, sometimes reffered to [Yuri's army].

PP- Power plant (or any power for that matter).

Rax- Barracks.

Rockies/Rocks- Rocketeers

Rambo hack- A hack/cheat on Red Alert 2 used by cheaters to bring the bodybuilder into the game. The bodybuilder in the campaign has a huge resemblance to Rambo, which is where the name comes from. 'Rambo' can instant kill infantry and buildings.

Prez/Pres IFV/ Prez hack- A hack/cheat on Red Alert 2 used by cheaters to bring the president into the game. The president can enter an IFV and turn it's weapon into a bright purple laser which deals tremendous damage.

Griz- Abbreviation for Grizzly tanks.

Lashies/Lashers/Lash- Lasher tanks.

James Bond- sometimes reffered to the Spy, taken from the British famous character in the movies. I.e. 'James Bond > your superweapon'.

YP- Yuri Prime not to be confused with [Yuris]
Yuris- Yuri clones.

Dreads- Dreadnoughts
AC- Aircraft Carrier

Pills- Pillboxes
Sentries- Sentry guns.
Gats- Gattling Tanks (sometimes reffered to as the Gattling cannon as well)

Engi IFV/SEAL rush- Both of these tactics are deeply despised upon by many players, although the SEAL rush is more accepted than the Engi rush, presumably it has more honour. An Engi rush begins VERY early in the game and usually accompanies an IFV or a Flak Track see [Drone Rush] as well, but it can be common for an Engi to move to an enemy base undetected on foot see [Walking Engi]. The Engi almost goes for the [MCV] 100% or the Warfactory /[WF]. Rare targets include the Barracks/[Rax] as well or the Power/[PP]. Afterwards the said player will be flamed a [n00b] and begin to spam [Sentries] or [Pills] in the enemy base or sell it. This is sometimes an excuse to counter Yuri's army due to the fact they couldn't beat him 'normally'.

A SEAL rush is basically a Nighthawk chopper or an IFV which plants down in an enemy base and begins destroying key buildings to stop the enemy from winning. A Nighthawk/[Hawk] has more honour than a rush by an IFV, simply because of the IFV's speed and the skill involved with the Nighthawk. And a SEAL rush has more honour than an Engi rush because it destroys the enemies base rather than captures it.

Hawk- Nighthawk chopper. Rarely seen in games.

Enginoob/Engi noob- Someone who uses the Engi IFV rush.

WF- War Factory, producer of tanks. Targets of [alt exploits].

Alt Exploit- A player that uses the alt button to drive a tank onto the enemy's war factory pad. A vehicle when produced therefore cannot exit the War Factory. Players who do this are flamed as [alt-noobs].

MCV- Mobile construction vehicle.

Nub/Nublet- derivative of n00b.

Alt-noob- A person who uses the [alt exploit].

TC- 'Tank Control' a person who correctly uses tanks to engage and retreat from the enemy.

Yuri noob/Yuri's army- A person who uses Yuri's army. The topic is widely debated in that Yuri's army is the best side or overpowering and those that use it especially in [QM] should be exiled from their peers, with the opinion that 'Yuri is overpowered' outnumbering the 'Yuri is not overpowered' opinion (mainly due to [MC], [Mutator trick], [Mags] and [UFOs]). Others see that Yuri's side may be the best but that other armies still have their own overpowering aspects such as the [BF] and that it is a lack of skill by the player to let the Yuri build up to reach this stage.

MC- Mind Control.

Mutator/Grinder trick- A player that uses this builds a cloning vat and pumps out 20+ Initiates each for $200. The vat increases the initiates to 40+. Mutator then turns them into brutes meaning 40+ initiates are now worth $500, where they are grinded and turned into something else, usually Disc armadas, essentially giving the Yuri player infinite money. This trick can also be done on slaves.

Disc armada- Taken from a naval armada or the 'Spanish Armada', this is basically the massing of an overwhelming amount of discs that can litterally crush everything in their path and is roughly unstoppable unless in the hands of a good player. People who do this are seen as [Yuri noobs].

Boomer rush- Yuri players build a Radar first and get a missile submarine called the Boomer which can level entire bases without sufficient defences meaning Yuri wins in most cases. Players who do this are usually flamed [Yuri noobs].

BF- Battle Fortress
BF Camper/Noob- A player who spends the whole game getting as many BF's as they can, the most powerful allied unit in the game filled with 5 [GGI's]. Often seen with turtlers, (see [turtle])

QM- Quick Match

CM- Clan Match

GGI- Guardian GI

MMs/Masters- Mastermind Tanks

Paras- American paradrops.

note to olli

i think your talking about this
Raped-FPS,whenever someone dies from someone,the person who caused the death tends to go repeat the motion of crouching then standing back up so it looks like he is getting raped,folowed by two other things,1 the person either walks away or he uses slang on the dead player like "you got owned bitch!" or "i just raped you!haha!"
2 the other players join in the taunting and start to shout to the guy who died saying "you just got raped!"
or "you got officialy PWNED!haha!"

Perhaps you haven't been gaming on PC, or period, for too long, young Padawan. Back in the day, it was 'teabagging'. :dry:

Some things I've learned as a chopper pilot in Armed Assault. Most of these happened in the worst way possible...

"I'm going to light up that ridgeline in 20" - In 20 seconds, you had better be at least 1000m from that ridgeline, or you'll be hit by [Hydra, M230, 500lb bombs, A10 cannon, M197, artillery]. And you're lucky I gave you the heads up.
"Inbound, ETA 10" - I'm lost.
"Watch THIS!" - Make sure you hit respawn.

"Ok, troops dead ahead... in the factory? Ok, steer clear" - Troops sitting in factory near fuel tanks, engaged with FFARs.
"No no no no no!!!!" - Well... unfortunately, the two spotters were at the barrier wall less than 18 meters away.
"Oh shit. Oh SHIT!" - Lit up the infantry, got the little bastards, and got the spotters, and then the fuel tanks, which I hadn't seen, exploded, resulting in aircraft loss.

"Laying down suppressive fire" - The AI is so ridiculous that if I fire before I see them, I'm dead. If I'm shooting at humans, I'll get my ass sniped.
"Mud spike, 12" - Take up crash positions, we're sooooooo fucked.
"Su-34, 3! 4! 5! 6! 6 far!" - Meh, he'd never.
"FARP will be up in just a minute" - Don't bother, just go back to base.


There are more, most of them are rather hilarious when you think about how you tend to learn these things, usually the death of the poor bastards you ferried down there.

"Inbound, ETA 10" - I'm lost.

I'm pretty sure that means, I'll/we'll be there in 10 mins or the enemy will be here/there in 10 mins.


Also here's something to add.

Arty n00bs - World in Conflict - Someone who plays support and uses just artillery and sucks at it and brags when he kills an enemy unit(There's more to it, but that's what I can gather so far from the forums on Massgate).

I always say I'll be ten minutes when I'm holding in a hover looking at my map saying "Now what valley is this?"
It seems to happen a lot when people are in trouble.

Thats probably what the console gamers call it.

Because there about 10 years late :p
