Glossary of Armada slang & abbreviations

Recommended Posts

Surely it should be SAd. or SAd'  to signify that the Ad is the start of a word?

 

Now it cant be SAD because the D is not the first letter of a 3rd word so its not a true TLA (three letter abbreviation :p) and therefore not deserving the capitalisation.....

 

\grammar Nazi in training .... :P

(confirmation that this post is said in jest and not serious in nature!!!!!!)

Hence why I said technically. I just find SAD more aesthetically pleasing.

Actually SAd is more aesthetically pleasant. SAD is boring. It is like putting the object in the center of the picture: bad composing. 

:P

Maybe. But I like symmetry. With only one none cap, it's not consistent. If it were sAd, SaD, sad, or SAD, it would at least look nicer. Sad, SAd, sAD and saD don't.

But it is at least 2/3 what is closer to the golden proportion than what you propose. And that's proven by centuries of art history and, also, nature. :P

Good point.  Based on this, I propose that all abbreviations from now on consist of 55 characters, 34 of which are upper case.

So...

As of this post, “Chirpy” has 91 results. “Edsel-Blerg Theory” has 19 results. “RAF” has 87 results. “Squid” has 99 results, and this will be number 100. Does it now qualify for a place on the list?

Fight on telling the squid truth! :)

(The Squid exists. Many have already found out the truth.  The Edsel-Blerg Theory? It does not.  99/100 Armada players think that is a discontinued Starship)

People new to this forum can sometimes find the slang and abbreviations somewhat obscure. Here's a list of the most commonly used ones:

 

Terms scheduled for deletion:

  • CW: Clone Wars era. See also GCW, OT, PT, TFA, TCW.
  • GCW: Galactic Civil War era. See also CW, OT, PT, TFA.
  • OT: Original Trilogy, i.e. Episodes IV-VI.  See also CW, GCW, PT, TFA.
  • PT: Prequel Trilogy, i.e. Episodes I-III.  See also CW, GCW, OT, TFA.
  • TCW: The Clone Wars animated TV series. See also CW.
  • TFA: The Force Awakens, i.e. Episode VII. See also CW, GCW, OT, PT.
  • Ugly: Scurrg H-6 bomber. Can also refer to starfighters cobbled together from parts.
  • VVV (also VVG, VGG, etc): Fleet comprised of a specific combination of Victory-class and/or Gladiator-class Star Destroyers.  

 
Please let me know if I've missed anything! I will also try to keep this updated as our local language evolves, e.g. when new cards enter the meta.

Time for an update. Do we still need SWM20 due to it now being confirmed as the Executor?
