Impenetrable Jargon

Posted at 11:35 Permalink

Sometimes, I wonder at the kind of language which gamers use. There are many terms that mean something very specific and explain a situation completely, but, devoid of context and experience, can be complete gibberish to the non-gamer. Consider this strategy: "[S]ince I will pick up Divine Sacrifice, I can use it during the second tantrum as long as I have not spent my bubble. I have been using my bubble on the bombs. Alternatively I can just Hand of Sacrifice on Kal and beacon myself." Yeah, it means something.
