Ban List Updated!

Recommended Posts

 

Did you use "BL" to signify Bomb Loadout and then not even equip a bomb upgrade? 

Or does "BL" somehow translate to the title, or something else entirely?

 

Genuinely asking. 

 

I thought he meant BTL-A4.

 

 

That would make more sense than Bomb Loadout I guess. Omitting a letter is easier than omitting an upgrade.

I guess he means BTL-A4 title, but the abbreviation BTL was too long for him, so he abbreviated the abbreviation

Do you know what I like most about your breakfast/dinner pics Joe?

 

It's the fact that you always have everything laid out properly. You're clearly a man who respects the art of eating like a gentleman.

 

Kudos.

 

Cheers

Baaa

 

I am sure it is the same for you as well as many of our brethren here.

;)

If you're going to use abbreviations, write out the meaning of each just for the first use.

Example: "Use autoblaster turrets (ABT) with accuracy corrector (AC) for great results!"

If you're going to post in a wargaming forum...

 

 

 

This is a proper Wargaming forum?

Thought this would be about the banned players list.

Was disappointed. Totes.

Ditto.

 

And you had to have read his previous topic to get the 'joke', too. Until the helpful context halfway down the page, this just looked like gibberish.

I've (I have) never had A1 Sauce, is it any good or a cheap imitation of HP (sorry I should have said Houses of Parliament) Sauce?

 

Now that's (that is) a breakfast sauce.

 

Cheers

Baaa

 

 

Oh it is very good...

:D

 

A1 is better than that Vegemite stuff... Or is it vitavegameatamin? And I don't even care for A1 :P

Nope.  It's Bomb Loadout.

 

My neat Scum list runs Bomb Loadout on the Hired Guns.  Why not?

 

And yeah IG88E's totally inane comment on my other thread had in fact spurred me to create an entirely new thread solely for the purpose of making fun of him (or her, as the case may be). 

 

I mean, it's a more grown-up solution than say... giving his email address to 4Chan with a note saying "loves MLP/Harry Potter porn".

 

On a more serious note though, what exactly is the point of complaining about abbreviated text?  You can either exercise some mental acuity and figure out what is being discussed or you can go find a more easily read thread to glom over.  Maybe one with big bold letters  and  double  line  spacing?

You do know that like, on this very page, some players who are very familiar with the game and its various upgrades had to speculate about whether you were using BTL-A4 or the completely pointless Bomb Loadout, right?

 

Also, if you just paste your list out of popular web builders, they'll spell it all out for you, so you won't have to bother. That'll save you some time and your readers some speculation. Look, here's one now: https://geordanr.github.io/xwing/

But like...is IG88E the one who comes off badly here? I'm definitely laughing at someone from this thread, but it's not IG88E.

Agreed. Maybe DC will be able to crack my devilishly devious code as to who it is, lol.

 

Oops, meant laugh out loud, lol.  :P

I got my wife to try Heinz 57 sauce and it blew her mind. Try that.

DC doesn't understand that some people ARE NOT wired to understand certain things. For me it is social cues, facial expressions, and emotions. It takes me a little while to decipher abbreviations. I am sure I am not the only one who is WIRED differently. It would be a shame if DC was made fun of because he doesn't understand the difference between childish and adult-like.

Well, 'DC' is better and more mature than what I was thinking of calling him that has the same letters.

The only DC I know makes horribad movies and then wonders why Marvel kicks its butt.

So you aggressively acronymise your post for absolute brevity in favor of clarity, then type in extraneous upgrades that have no mechanical effect but serve to raise the mental load of parsing the thing even further, as people double-check the build to make sense of it in case they missed a trick... And do this in a thread where you're interested in feedback and discussion, ie, are dependant on people to have goodwill if you're ever going to have an interesting conversation about it.

So, in short, you neither saved characters, nor improved the odds of people usefully discussing the build.

'why not' indeed.
