Revision as of 01:12, 27 November 2016

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.

Flag Running=Working against your own team, taking your team's flag towards the other team's base. If you do this you are a flag runner.

Flag Shopping=Rapidly picking up and dropping flags, in order to find a particularly powerful or useful one. Also known as flag farming.

Laser Spamming=Uselessly, blindly, rapidly shooting with the laser flag, often resulting in team kills.

Pass=Send the flag to the middle, or to a safe zone. See this article.

Spawn camping=Sitting near a team's spawn site waiting to kill them when they respawn after their flag is captured.

Spawn killing=Killing someone as soon as they spawn.

Tele=Teleporter

Theirs=Attack the other team's flag, or used to signify the other team's base.
