WoW-clone- This is one of the most overused terms. WoW mechanics are very much similar to mechanics of MMOs that even came before it, and people even call those games WoWclones. Like the developers of DAoC or EverQuest used a time machine, traveled into the future, and "stole" poor old Blizzard's ideas. In addition it is used on ANY mmo coming out. MMO announced,(parrot squark) WRAAAAAAAAAK, WoW clone WoW clone, WRAAAAAAAAAAAAAK, WoW CLONE!(parrot whisle) GW2 was called one, when its mechanics are a tad bit different, ESO is called one, even though its said to have different mechanics. In short, if its an MMO, its apprently a WoW clone, because Blizzard apprently invented MMOs.

X Killer- Similar to the above. It was way overused, and is used for every and any MMO released. Why do you care so much that X(usually WoW) continues to exist? Apprently people still enjoy it, why do you want that taken from them. Also why does your MMO of the week's success depend on being a WoW killer. 

Carebear- Basically epeen stroking insults for people that like PvP more then someone else does, and therefor that person is a carebear.

U Mad Bro- Just a stupid insult that makes you look unorginal.

Fail- Oh sweet jebus am I sick of this one. People use it way to often for any MMO that has yet to come out with topics such as, "Why this game has already failed" or when a game doesn't reach 12 million subscribers that it "failed". That apprently means that EverQuest "failed" since it only reached around....I think 500k at its peak? Yeah, no I doubt that. It is also used in several topics its like a vowel or something. Something like, "This failure of a game is fail because it has fail graphics, fail mechanics, and fail developers and anyone who likes this failure of a game are failures themselves". The only saving grace for this word is any "review" I see with the word fail I know right away is most likely no worth looking into.

I'm sure there are more words I despise, but these are the ones I have for now.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

12/18/12 8:11:19 PM#82

Not so much as words but phrases that I can't stand, such as:

 

  • Elder Scrolls Online is a WoW clone
  • Sandbox is the only real MMO game play
  • FFA Full Loot PvP promotes skill
  • GW2 is a horrible game and is hemoraging players left and right
  • Arch Age is going to change the face of MMO's
 
 
etc.

 

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Seriously?  No one is going to say "mob"?  It's an abbreviation for mobile object, and no MMO has been object oriented design like MUDs where the term originates.  They can be "monster", "NPC", or whatever else you want, but they are not and have never been "mob".

Do you have an alternative to the word "hyperbole?"  The word is fine.  Hearing people try and pronounce it is kind of funny though.

Exaggerate.

That word lacks the implied sarcasm or rhetoric that hyperbole conveys.  It would be like using the word fruit when you are talking about a banana.  Correct, but not accurate.

A few years ago you saw the word used next to never. Then, some sort of outbreak took place, and we now have everyone and their dogs spewing it up all over the place. The quest to be clever has reduced it's impact to squat. Similar to the case of "straw man argument". Instead of coming across as bright and original (which is obviously the intention), you just end up looking like a putz.

Overuse seems to be a problem with a lot of the examples in this thread. It's funny, much like the titles that make up this the genre, the gamers who play them are just as unoriginal and stagnant

Hyperbole is the greatest term ever to be used in regards to mmo's - bar none;  from the past, for now and for the future, and anyone who thinks differently is the type which will bring our entire society to destruction.

I get it, well played.  Well played indeed.

Oh crap...I forgot about "well-played"

That one is really annoying.

I am no longer responsible for anything my phone decides is correct in the way of word choices and punctuation.

My biggest pet peeve is when people misuse the word "literally," particularly when they use it as hyperbole, exaggeration, or emphasis. This isn't unique to MMO players or gamers in general, but some of them are guilty of it.

 

-Literally every feature of this game is awful.

-Literally the worst game ever.

 

And more generally:

 

-There were literally a million people there.

-My parents are literally going to kill me.

-It was literally, like, so much fun. (unnecessary)

Winnar. Noob/Newb/N00b and its additional variants. Boi. Gurl. 

Someday I am going to write an editorial about the importance of swapping out of vowels in cyberland. OP, I'll be sure to make generous use of hyperbole in said editorial. 

I also hate epic fail.  

I teach the second grade and one kid told another that his presentation was an "epic fail." 

Agree that zergling should be kept in Starcraft.

I am shocked nobody said the big two yet.  I'll say em though.  Most misunderstood 2 words in MMO gaming.

 

1) themepark

2) sandbox

Haha! Good stuff! That really got a big chuckle out of me.

My personal favourite peeve is "WoW clone". I think that term has created an atmosphere of vitriol. A clone is an exact copy of something else; a WoW clone would get sued by Blizz. I think it is best to say that X game is too similar to WoW rather than saying it is a "WoW clone". It is now used as a mantra to tear down any game that incorporates a few of the features that are in WoW.

Other less annoying terms: the derogatory ones based on sexual orientation or ethnic groups I hear quite a few times in general chats in many games, rouge, and herpderp. Rouge is the one that annoys me the most out of the three since people think it is funny to deliberately misspell it, but in my language it means "red". It took me a while to catch onto what they meant.

Its definitely overused.  Rift (vanilla) was defiiinitely a WoW clone.  GW2 and TSW are not.

If you are a themepark and have most of this list you are a WoW clone:

 

three talent tree system

heavy focus on linear instance repetition for currencies

main pvp focus is instanced team matches

leveling designed to be done solo

gather, click, combine, auto skill up professions

grey, white, green, blue, purple item progession

 

 

Some of these WoW wasnt the first to use, but not all.  WoW was one of the first two true themeparks that both released within weeks of each other though.  It was the first hit MMO where solo was by far the preferred (and intended) levelling method.  It was the first MMO where instanced matches beacame the prime form of PvP that I can think of.

People in SWTOR always use the word fun.

I think its mostly paid employees from Bioware that log on the SWTOR forums that keep overusingthat word.

Its like they cant use innovative , exciting , immersive , alive or interactive so they just use fun.

Its about all they can use since SWTOR dosent have much.

Aren't they objects in a game? Assets, as it were? Do they move? Sounds to me like they are, in fact, Mobile OBjects. Unlike other assets like buildings, vehicles, and the like that do not move.

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

Such a fun thread. :)
