    Does it really matter?
    I saw @Mr. Chompers saying that we need forum post about slang used in these forums and I decided that I will create this because people (especialy new membere might struggle undestanding some phrases and words)

    FORUM RELATED
    as the title says this part is about words that are related to things in the forums
    1. op - original poster, somebody who came with some idea, started thread etc.; look in the game related part for other definition
    2. TL;DR (or tl;dr) - to long, didn't read, this appears mostly under long posts when someone is lazy/don't have time to read
    3. RNGesus - compound of acronym RNG (Random Number Generator) and name Jesus; fictional existence which is responsible for your luck, drops of good items, getting critical hits etc.
    4. MVP - most valuable posters; moderators of this community
    5. af - some has some attribute which is really big; for example: "sniper is op af!"
    6. lmao - laugh(ing) my ass off
    7. ffs - for f*cks sake
    8. brb - be right back
    9. AM - American Marauder. Yes, this is used quite frequently.
    10. dev - developer of Battle Bay. Used to represent community coordinators and anybody that works for Rovio. Could also be some sort of slang insult... at least that is what it is most commonly used for.
    11. whale - person that pays a lot; they help to keep the game running
    12. P2W/PTW/P2P - pay to win/play. Basically you spend money to make you stronger in game
    13. F2P/F2W - free to play/win. Poor souls
    GAME RELATED
    now it's time to move to the game related part

    1. turtle - fixer; used because of the green color
    2. lawnmower - fixer
    3. banana (boat/ship) - speeder; used because of the yellow color (and may be because of the shape?)
    4. raptor - look at the banana
    5. leggy - legendary; highest item rarity in game
    6. BT - big torpedo
    7. FG - flare gun
    8. RG - rail gun
    9. seal clubbers - people who intentionaly drop/control their infamy to have easier matches with lower mk ships
    10. AFK - away from keyboard; floater
    11. floater - person who floats; not moving his ship nor firing weapons
    12. op - overpovered; in this case having stats to high, dealing too much damage or absorbing too high damage etc.
    13. TDM - team death match
    14. selfish fixer - now it gets tricky, there are three subcategories of this fixer type, they are 1) ultimate selfish - running only tapes 2)selfish - tape+pulse/box 3)not realy selfish - majority of items are for team healing
    15. potato - player who plays BB but doesn't have any fingers
    16. ExC: Explosive Cannon
    17. LRM: Long Range Mortar
    18. berta: Big Berta
    19. standcan: Standard Cannon
    20. carro: Carronade
    21. blast: Blast cannon
    22. bolt: Repair Bolt
    23. ballpark: Ballpark mortar
    24. torp: Torpedo
    25. pulse: Repair Pulse
    26. tesshield: Tesla Shield - "The most annoying word on the forums"


    authors notes:
    I am not in community for long time so I either might wrote bad definition or forgot something
    help is appreciated, if you know anything that should be added to the list, write it in the comments

    Quite so lol, what a famous guy.
    I've heard a few people say "dolphin" for someone between a whale and f2p, for those who do spend money but not up in the hundreds/thousands like common whales.
    LOL

    SPLASH

    verb, adverb

    When a player uses a weapon that has a AOE damage such as a Torpedo or a EC, and it hits another ship along with the targeted boat, causing damage to more than one ship.

    “Bro, I was running with my Turtle and I saw a Big Torp coming, so I moved away, but the banana boat didn’t see it and I got splashed by the explosion!”

    “The splash of the EC is nice when you aim it right.”

    “My whole team got splashed by that FB. Good thing I got my Pulses!”

    Pretty sure that the technical name for a Fixer = Lawnmower.
