Difference between revisions of "Jargon"
(I don't think people use "spamming" towards filling up the list server. Some directional jargon and acronyms. Changed "pass" to link to a tactics article.)
(I took 'G' out of the Acronyms - it's just a flag abbreviation, and we can't put all of them in here.)

This page hopes to clarify some common jargon, acronyms and slang used by many players in game. They can be useful to know, especially in team situations, as other players will assume that you know what they are talking about.
Many players use map "landmarks," like "mid tower" or "@ R jump," to signify places on the map, so it's a good idea to learn your maps as well as the jargon.
