    Good idea. When I first read HB = health bar, I thought to myself... how old is this material? We don't use food in Entropia!

    I've never seen anyone use this, I use revive for short.
    And as for RT, you already state that is ROCKtropia further down the list, and that is much more correct, imo.
    Do consider putting the list in alphabetical order please!

    Along those lines, a few people use CP to mean Calypso, not Crystal Palace. So when they hop in your ship and say "take me to CP", you should probably double check the destination :D

    On a related note, in Entropia WC is not short for "water closet". People will typically make this remark to indicate that their most recent comment was made in the "wrong channel", or "wrong chat".

    An example of things we say everyday ingame, taking for granted everyone knows what they mean, but I have actually had newcomers ask me what some of these mean :D

    ty - thank you
    yw -you're welcome
    np- no problem

    also one that has a very different meaning in some other games, DPS

    And one that's usually heard after a string of NRFs or no-looters - FUMA!

    Meaning - "I'm not very happy with you MindArk"

    Hi,

    nice thread! I may add some:


    • hf & gl - "have fun & good luck", often used when a GD enters the radar
    • HA - "hit ability" on a weapon, should be 10/10
    • noob or nOOb - should be known, but has a different meaning in EU; it lacks the derogative connotation and is usually used for any new player; is also often used to refer to themselves by more advanced players.
    Have a good time!
