It's like screaming "INB4!!!" all the time during a discussion with your friends or prof. That would be pretty nuts too right.

Come on Pizza, it's not like this game is the only thing in the world with a jargon

that's true. the jargon is just so out there though. i mean three years ago i had two roommates who would play that game spending 3-4 hours a day on there, and just for kicks i would try and talk to them about the game using the jargon i had picked up from this website, and they couldn't understand me!

i had made fun of them for being total losers by spending that much time on WoW, but only after these conversations did I realize how much deeper into the culture the people here at BF are than my friends. you guys must put a lot more time and emotional attachment into the game.

another example: a good friend of mine lost his girlfriend of three years over this game. that's pretty bad, right? and yet he still wasn't into the game enough to be able to understand the jargon used in this forum.

Your friend needs to get his priorities straight. And lingo isn't the same all over. Look up the term "vernacular".

Just which terms did you use that had them stumped? I find it hard to believe that there would be much of anything that couldnt be understood if they played 3-4 hours a day and lost girlfriends and such over it. Also, if its verbal maybe you pronounced it differently than they may have imagined it? This is particularly the case with words that are shortened or acronyms (RAF for example if you said it IRL I would have no clue what you are talking about)

I don't remember exactly...I think I said some things like gold farming, grinding, nerfing, alts, purple items, aggro, raiding, etc.

I find it seriously hard to believe that they didnt know what you were talking about. The chat channels in the game (guild/party/city) are full of people that bring those terms up. You would have to be completely ignorant to anything going on around you and play 100% alone to not know them, especially since a lot are based on common english words.

Well I don't think my roommates were in any guilds, but they did know a few people in real life that they played with at the same time. Maybe they knew and were playing dumb so they would look "cooler" to me, but I doubt this.

No, but on Scilla they may use different words than people on Ner'zhul or Archimonde. There are different terms in different places you tool.

What's happening?
I keep my dreadlocks in a napkin ring
Rap and sing
Unlike the homogenous clones
I'm in to earth tones, birth stones, and erogenous zones
The more ticklish the more you have
Sitting on the curb of what used to be the burbs
And before that was Canarcie
I'm a disturbed and bitter herb
Like saltwater and parsley

for those who play wow as their first serious MMO, it's unlikely that they'll know right off the bat what raiding, grinding, or even things like parties are. much less anything wow specific like gold, races, classes, skills, etc...

We're gonna be level 70 in like two weeks, there will be three of us (once we hit 60 my friend is transferring his 60 blood elf paladin to our server to quest with us) join us and we can find some other scrub and ruin the arenas.

And Pizza, given that you openly admit you don't understand the lingo well, I don't particularly see how you're forming dedicated scientific experiments to discover the relative "emotional attachment" or dedication that members here have vs. your roommates. If they don't understand your terminology, perhaps you're not using it correctly? Really after reading trade chat for a month you pretty much learn everything there is to learn.

It's not like it's evolving rapidly or changing in any way. Grinding, goldfarming, raiding, etc. have been basically the same thing since Molten Core years ago (or so I'm told).
