List of acronyms, initialisms and abbreviations used for MCoC

I've tried to make a comprehensive list, but I still feel I've missed some. Moreover, the game is forever evolving, so more will be added.

Feel free to add any that I've missed.

    Best one.

    Lol glad you noticed.
  • There is one more you missed:
    AAR - Ability accuracy reduction.
  • CassyCassy Posts: 469
    Ultron OG is also known as ultron drone (thoug he is not i know) because He looks like the Drones from the original ultron aou Event.
    In germany very common.

    Great job OP!

    Here are some additional ones I'd like to add:
    - Pilot = Using someone else's account (which is against the ToS)
    - Mercs (Mercenaries): There are two types of mercs
    1. Piloters: People who get paid to play the game for you (which violates the ToS)
    2. Part-time Bosskillers: People who join an alliance temporarily to help them in AQ, AW, AE (alliance events), etc (this type is much less common as far as I'm aware of)
    - RNG: Random Number Generator aka how lucky you are
    - Ability Accuracy: The chance to proc/trigger abilities such as regeneration, bleed, shock, power drain, stun, etc.
    - 12.0: The update that weakened Thor and Scarlet Witch, killed off Black Widow and Doctor Strange, brought the flat value system into the game, caused a ton of annoying bugs and made a lot of players butthurt
    - God tier champions: Really, really useful characters that people love

    As much as I used ST+KM, it's embarrassing I missed this one.
  • Thanks for the list, very handy if I forget an acronym.

    Well buff/nerf is indeed in forum terms an improvement/decline of a champion, in-game it is buff/debuff and applies to a certain type of status effect that yield positive/negative results.

    Don't forget nodes, a lot of people (myself included) don't usually know all the effects by hard. I've searched the internet and there is nowhere a list of those. Like:
    • Masochism
    • Buffet
    • Mesmerize
    • etc.

    Also: meme champion: KK, Colossus, Spider-Gwen, Joe Fixit,...

    Also, nicknames. Like potato head (MODOK).

    This is a list of acronyms though, so your point is not necessarily relevant in this discussion.
  • Or......we could negate the need for a comprehensive list of acronyms and abbreviations by not being lazy and actually typing out the names.

    Do you say "DNA" or "deoxyribonucleic acid"?

    Point being, using the initialism is easier and it conveys the same meaning.

    Your point is also moot if you have ever used contractions like "don't" or 'can't".
  • Do kabam have the ability to pin this discussion?

    Dupe - Duplicate Champion
    Kabam-med - Getting a horrible champion in a crystal you invested a lot of time on. Otherwise known as life slapping you in the face.

    That's all I got.

    You haven't used the in-game chat much, don't you?

    The node name is a sort of abbreviation. Nobody really states if it is a node or what it does, but assumes everyone knows.
  • F2P is a good one.
  • Wow what do you people do with all the time you save by using these stupid abbreviations

    Win the game - achieve something thought to be very difficult in nature, especially that which one previously believed that one would never achieve. (Ex. ROL, LOL, Darkhawk Uncollected)
