Online Games Forum Terminologies: Part 1

Courtesy of Google

An online game, believe me or not, will never be successful without a well managed community. Who would want to be in a game full of ill-mannered people anyways? Tight bonds between the players are usually formed in the game's forums; a place where the players can express their thoughts through posts and images. Given such, Moderators play an important role in keeping the interaction healthy amongst users. In order for them to pick the rotten tomatoes from the healthy ones, they have some terminologies/categories, or whatever you may call it, as their basis.

Here are some of the Terminologies that most of you may be familiar of:

1. Flaming - a hostile way of talking to other users. It projects as a form of bash or insult, verbally or nonverbally, which starts a derailed, unconstructive conversation. It attacks the person behind the figure/avatar which then results to a never ending exchange of bullets.

2. Necro - as the term implies, it revolves around the act of revival. It is usually associated with the threads that have been long forgotten or dead. You can do it by searching for a thread that has been made ages ago and post whatever it is that you wanted to post as a reply. Expect a series of bashing/trolling plus a couple of Moderator notices afterwards. This will indicate that you have successfully done a Thread Necro. Congratulations!

3. Trolling - the act of farming a provocative response or producing an off-topic reply. The term trolling has evolved through the years and has a lot of variations now. It has essentially lost its true meaning. It is needless to say that all of us here have heard of this term.

4. Spamming - the act of posting irrelevant replies or those that have no bearing to the ongoing discussion. It is usually done with the intent of increasing one's post count. It is sometimes interchanged with trolling.

5. Siggy - a.k.a. Signature. A part of your profile or post that contains either a picture or a message. Most of the forumers use this to express their personalities or insights. There are different size requirements based on the forum your on.

6. Creeper - someone who views your information but doesn't make any contact. Can be used interchangeably with Stalker.

7. xoxo - I'm not very sure about this but as far as I know, it means "hugs and kisses". Don't ask me why. I don't know how that made sense.

8. Bump - the same act as that of Necro but with a different intention. Usually, Bumping is allowed and legit while Necro isn't.

9. Nerf - to weaken, nullify or decrease one's capability or effectivity. This term is usually directed to skills and/or characters of a certain game which experienced a downgrade.

 

There are also some abbreviations but I won't be discussing them one by one as they differ per game. It will only end up as a huge wall of text. If you are playing a game, make sure to visit its forum and interact with other users, You may find your true love or your worst enemy there. Good luck! xoxo

Simply Poetic

 

Swordsman

“My sword is my best friend. I never take it off my side. I’ve mastered each and every possible way of using it. When swung, foes back off with the fear of being slashed. I’m very protective of my teammates and I would sacrifice everything, even my life, for their sake. I live for honor and pride.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

         

 Magician

“Don’t be afraid of the elements, they are your comrades. Be as powerful as fire, as calm as the waters, as free as the wind and as sturdy as the Earth. I am not bound by rules set by an average mind. I go above the system and create my own wonders.”

 

Thief

“My people like it nice and easy. Live life as it is with no hassle or stress. Once we spot our prey, we move quietly and strike without hesitation. By hiding in someone else’s shadow and being equipped with sharp poisonous tools, we can take their heads off in broad daylight.”

 

Merchant

“Money makes the world go round. For the sake of money, crimes were committed, lives were ruined and at some point, faith and trust were lost. I control the economy. Gambling is a part of the game but bargaining and discounts are out of the question. Let your money talk to me.”

 

Acolyte

“I follow the path of truth and light. I stand up against evil and fight for what’s right. Wounds need to be healed, ailments need to be cured and darkness needs to fall. I’m a double-edged sword. I can come in the form of destruction or peace.”

 

Archer

“Be one with nature. Everything you need is around you. I like my tools long, hard, dexterous and can pierce through anything. Music flows though my veins; the kind of music that can tear your flesh and bones apart; the kind of music that encourages and uplifts.”

It is probably one of the best MMORPGs out there, in my own opinion that is, and is one of the pioneers of the existing games today. This 2D oriented PC game by Gravity opened the doors to countless possibilities of the gaming world. From map exploration to card collection topped with cuteness and an overall captivating storyline, this is one game that you wouldn’t like to miss.

Everything revolves around a place called Midgard. This kingdom went under the rule of King Tristan III. Monsters can be found just outside the towns and portals are your only divisions. You start off by creating your character, its stats and appearance. You’ll step inside the world of Ragnarok as a Novice and later on, through harsh and countless hours of training, you’ll be able to change your so-called Job Class. This Job Class is where the distinction of the game itself comes in. You can either become a swordsman, magician, acolyte, thief, merchant or an archer. Each class has different capabilities, strengths and weaknesses which will later on be discussed on my next blogs.

 

 

Zeny is the in-game currency used here to buy items, weapons and other services. The most common types of money-making strategies here are boss/rare item hunting, gold hunting and engaging in player trades.

The game became quite popular and even had its own animation series. It is needless to say that the animation was composed of the different Job Classes for its characters which will later on deal with the MVP/Boss Monsters.
