OMG! This is the B.E.S.T. You know im at level 25/gold and havent a CLUE of what it is im doing! Until I found you. THX!


#145

I’ve never personally heard these terms in chat or on the boards. Citations?


#146

Origins

From other MMOs. Yes, I am an old fogy ( Those young whipper snappers need to get off my base and stop doing seasonal summons all over the place. When I was in school we had Elemental summons, epic summons and daily, none of this fancy VIP Pass…)

Alternative jargon

Heavy= Stone Wall

Anchor = Mighty Glacier

Citations

You know what, I just give the fluff up. Gorram Google Only brings up Anchor’s Hero Guide and some anime called Heavy Unit.

So. What does your alliance call heroes that are not centers but not glass cannons?

@Tamicristi, this would be a good one to translate for the ally!!!


#149

Okay silly question, but it bothers me not knowing. Why do people refer to ascension items for heroes as “mats”? If it is an acronym I could see “Minimum Ascension [?]” but still don’t get it.

Thanks

@Drewrobi I moved your question to a thread where we can help answer it. :slight_smile:

“Mats” isn’t an acronym, but rather a (bit odd) abbreviation:


Why are ascension items called mats by some?
#151

The game inventory system calls such items ‘Ascension Materials’ so the common usage abbreviates that term to ‘Mats’.


#152

Nothing odd there. ‘Mats’ has been a common single syllable abbreviation for ‘materials’ across multiple online games for years.


#153

Ok, just odd to me. :slight_smile:

I hadn’t played any other games that used it, so E&P was the first place I encountered it.


#154

Actually these terms are not equivalent. I wonder what the kids are currently using for Heavy and Anchor.

Here is an example from team chat where Center, Stonewall and Mighty Glacier do not apply:

Found out all A.I. Damage is colorless - this means defense teams also - so I swapped out Glass Cannon sniper Guardian Jackal for Heavy sniper Joon as my defense team’s corner sniper. A fast mana speed heavy sniper with 6 turn accuracy debuff should annoy attackers.

Thanks, added. :heart_decoration:

New version of 20likesThanks or can moderators run out of likes.

Just a 20-character extender. “heart_decoration” is lengthy.

:heart: increase with trust level. I think i’ve got 150/day.


#158

Moderator can you please stop doing this? Its ANNOYING, i dont want to click somewhere else for the initial topic i clicked on, i don’t want to dig through the answers to a differently worded but similar topic. The newly split topic is still on the front page. STOP PLEASE


#159

I tend to talk about being at “matwall” (when I can’t advance any further without getting the proper ascension materials). I assume I got it from somewhere here… Is this common enough to add?


#160

No, sorry. If the poster searched first and didn’t make a duplicate, we wouldn’t be splitting posts. Very simple fix. :slight_smile:


#161

No, ok. But remember this power trip, the majority dont appreciate this, cheerleaders and part timers to this forum will. Outside coming in, majority, hates this. - copkilla

If clicking links and reading posts to learn what you’re interested in learning is that unpleasant for you, maybe forums aren’t for you. There are a number of line groups that give advice and answer questions too.

@Rigs is something of a clearinghouse for connecting people up with the line groups. Perhaps he can help you.
