Talk:Jargon

From Empires Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I have NEVER heard anyone ever call a camera a pixerduhduh. Should that be in jargon? Also, broccoli, what, you don't like man-eating bears? Jeez, it's like you want this wiki to be helpful and useful and not filled with stupid jokes or something. Wierdo!!!--The Buttery Lobster 17:13, 23 June 2007 (EDT)

Whoops, I must have missed the joke about the BEAR, I was having to merge because every time I tried to submit, you had already updated the article *mumble, mumble*... I'll add it back in. Pixerduhduh came from the forums, not from in-game. I can't remember the source, but I've heard it used several times since (only jokingly, of course. 'Cam' is much more practical on the battlefield). Broccoli 17:16, 23 June 2007 (EDT)

Well I have to be afk until tomorrow now, and I can't think of any more common jargon that people use... maybe something about jeep races, or something, but I can't think of anything. At any rate, I'll not be here, so you might actually be able to edit stuff :). The only other terms I can think of relate to the forums, such as Krenzyte, Dev, or variants of important ppl's names. Also the definition of "Flip/Flipped" needs a link to the ninth mine trick.--The Buttery Lobster 17:23, 23 June 2007 (EDT)

Thought: Yesterday, someone (Bodrick, i think?) called me a "Splitter" when I tried to join NF and everyone was BE during the jeep races when Bodrick used admin power to override alot of the usual restrictions. WTF is a splitter, and should it be included in the jargon?--The Buttery Lobster 00:39, 24 June 2007 (EDT)

A splitter is somebody who abandons their team without hesitation when times get hard. Examples include "The popular front? He's over there. (shouting) SPLITTERS!" It's a general term, I don't think we need to include it in the jargon. Broccoli 10:45, 24 June 2007 (EDT)

is "tags" applicable to empires, only, or to clans in general? If it applies to all game clans, it should maybe be removed to simplify terminology and not overwhelm people.--The Buttery Lobster 21:13, 26 July 2007 (EDT)

I have no clue why that is there at all. BALEET PLZ --Arklansman 22:27, 26 July 2007 (EDT)

Weedy, "RC" is not a term specific to Empires, for this reason it was deleted. The same goes for "tags". -- Broccoli 14:46, 11 August 2007 (EDT)

possible definition: roflman=rifleman. But I've only heard ark use this, so idk. he might just be crazy.--The Buttery Lobster 23:32, 7 September 2007 (EDT)

Does a ShotGun Heavy count? I have used this term and I know others have??? Love that tank. --Cyber-Kun 12:32, 1 November 2007 (PDT)

Possible new terms, depending on what everyone thinks: Aura: SL aura, SL: squad leader, SL Power: gee, idk, the SL power? Or any variation on these terms. Include?--The Buttery Lobster 17:57, 12 November 2007 (PST)

  • Definitely include. It's jargon, and Empires-specific. --Chahk 18:49, 13 November 2007 (PST)
