Hi,

Please don't draw parallels with real-life stereotypes, it's offensive and ends up with people arguing about religion and politics which isn't allowed anywhere on these forums!

Thanks.

fun: completely and utterly ruining another person's day.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

soft point - Dont shoot the target until everyone in fleet is on it and instead just activate EWAR modules, so everyone gets on the killmail prior to popping the target.

Disenage ="We're all screwed."
FC: fleet commander
Hic/Hictor = Heavy interceptor
Dic/Dictor = Interdictor

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

Only when the +1 fleet wins.

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

ON FLEET OPS

warp to the out-gate = jump through the outgate
hold on the gate = jump half the fleet through the gate
hold your cloaks = align to a random direction
the primary is (whatever) = engage any target except (whatever)


All so true!


AB = afterburner
AP = auto pilot
WTZ = warp to zero
WT = war target.
PI = Planetary Interaction.
MWD = microwarp drive, also used as a verb.
optimal = elusive weaponry G spot.
Apocrypha = best EvE expansion for the players, called their worst expansion by the developers (duh!).
boot.ini = epic CCP screwup at releasing an expansion that would delete a system file, now it's a pair of pants part of an epic CCP screwup at releasing an items shop.
LP Store = bachelor's grade example about how to NEVER code an user interface. Closely matched by the invention user interface.
FC = fleet commader = the totally drunk guy, singing old tunes, whose orders get accurately ignored.
FC: "Burn to XYZ" = everybody warp to random gates, with different autopilot settings and then spam fleet chat where the hell everybody is.
Primary = first thing on your overview, sometimes in your own fleet (oops forgot to set overview).
FC: "Primary XYZ" = everybody shoot the guy whose name begins with "A".
logi = guy to blame in any case. His duty IS to keep you alive against that alpha fleet you just MWDed in the optimal of.
POS = piece of sh***. Oh wait it's that lovely thing everybody shoot for hours and then hope to get a Rifter BPO out of it.
reinforced XYZ = structure whose shields have gone and becomes impervious to damage for some time (depends on "stront" that is how much Strontium Calathrates it got fed).
FC All Warp to Titan at 10k = best way to get the bridge Titan bumped out of a POS shields, there's always someone too pro or too slow to do what's told.
blob = somebody else's fleet, usually 1/10 of yours but still kicked your ass.
bomb squad spotted! = everybody turn on MWD and give the bombers their best transversal.
scammer = the good teacher who parts the dumbs off their money.

carebear = any form of game play in which belligerent undesirables don't agree with.

"U mad bro?" = can mean everything between:
-literally "are you mad?" as a rethorical question
-everything the filter in this forum would mask
-and "regards from your mum AND your sister"

"U seem mad." = can mean everything between:
-Answer and amplification to a rethorical question (-> see "U mad bro?")
-redundant insult
-and "they will not be home any time soon, pizza is in the fridge"

In that vein:

u jelly?

Are you jealous? Usually said after someone posts a real shiny kill mail and others are angry they stayed ratting instead of going on the roam.
