    So if you are VIP you automatically know what those terms mean? I don't get it.

    I'm a VIP player and I still don't know all of the acronyms so your point is what? The person was trying to trying to compliment you. 0/10 for a fail troll.

    I never understand why people use acronyms when they're just going to have to explain them anyhow. Seems like more work when you're trying to be lazy.

    No, you told him what BG and DN was ... And you're trolling the forums, not the player.

    we all have to learn one day, doesn't mean that it's only f2p players who are clueless. I've played with more VIP's than I can name who don't have a clue.

    Stop beating on people who are f2p. It's attitudes like that, that cause a divide amongst the community of LOTRO. A community that is much better than any other MMo out there. You want this place to decend into the same type of community elitism that exists on other popular MMO's?

    QFT. Somebody asking a simple question isn't as funny as somebody coming on the forums and acting like they're something special just because they can poke fun at new players.

    Re: lol @ F2P

    I hardly ever use the IM tab - don't you have to erase the name out of the "sessions" to the right there?

    The correct questions would have probably been "what does XYZ stand for". Anyways, there are certain things that could potentially be funny - but blaming someone for not knowing acronyms is not really hilarious.

    Carry on lively.

    Lol.Again,he explained what the acronyms were before he even asked.Yet after being told what they were,the player still asked what they were.You dont need to know what the acronym is to understand that they are raids.

    Well no worries, it's just that I can't see that in the screenshot provided ...

    I would still erase the two other spots where the name pops up ...

    Cheers, done with my work for today, time to head home.

    No he explained what the acronyms represent, not what they mean. You not actually getting this is starting to get funny to me.

    To make it easier for you if he explained the acronyms he would've said OD = Ost Denizen and BG is Barad Gularan. I presume you do know this yourself... .

    So saying those names will instantly explain what they are?The person asked what they are,NOT what they stand for
    You not comprehending that is funny to me.Whats even funnier is you F-ing up what they actually stand for.Ill give you points for trying but you still look like a tool.

    Re: lol @ F2P

    And you my friend are like the nitpicky history teacher everybody gets annoyed at.

    When a person asks what BG is, he IS asking what it stands for, and what it is. It's one and the same.

    Example~ Noob: Whats OD?
    You: OD is Ost Dunhoth, a 12 person instance in Enedwaith.

    Re: lol @ F2P

    Ugh now I remember why I hate coming on this forum. It's like a big party where everyone comes to call each other noobs for asking questions, point out why everyone else is wrong and stupid, and just generally be mean. What ever happened to trying to be helpful to someone without:

    A) Running off, LoLing at him and calling him a noob somewhere. Like we ALL weren't new to the game at some point...
    B) Being totally snarky and sarcastic because you found someone who knows less about the game than you,
    or
    C) Taking the time to screenshot some person's polite and innocent question and then posting it on the forum for the sake of loling @ F2P or whatever?

    It seems like you, my friend, need to find something better to do with your time than try (unsuccessfully, I might add) to make fun of new players on the forum...

    I write user manuals in real life, and this method is standard operating procedure. On the first use in a topic, use the full name and give the acronym/initialism. After that, you can use the acronym/initialism at will (with subtle reminders about what it means). It's a little thing, but it is one of the things that separates good writers from mediocre ones.
