Dictionary of game slang, abbreviations, special terms

AuthorDictionary of game slang, abbreviations, special terms
Below are slang words, expressions, acronyms etc in Russian and their meaning in terms our community is accustomed to.
Our team made special selections in [such brackets] to list possible interpretations that could be especially hard to understand. That's what players of low literacy, or those who type directly in Russian with English letters, or those who use automated translation like Google translate oddities =) could use.

Please note that communication is subjective, and many players may invert some of these phrases to his or her commodity, or even to play a prank on a player who is not familiar with Russian language etc. It's all complicated, and adapting may indeed be a very tough thing to do, but we ought to start with something.
