    newbie: someone new to the game.
    n00b: 1: someone new to the game who refuses to learn, doesn't listen or read the manual, doesn't have a clue how to play and either doesn't give a damn or thinks he does know. 2: someone who's not very good at the game.

    Have you ever seen silenced skulks in early game? You walk, you don't hear ANYTHING but your own footsteps and suddenly *CHOMP*CHOMP* you're dead. MC first is not a noob tactic.

    I believe pg = phase gate has not been mentioned
    I've also seen hs = health spam and as = ammo spam used by some people to get their commander to do as such.

    Some basic RTS terms often used in NS are:

    turtle / turtling - building up the base a lot with turrets, etc. while having little or no expansion
    rush - a group charging the opposing team's base

    Also: smile.gif

    RTS / FPS - real time strategy, first person shooter. NS is a combination of these two types of games.

    turret farm - a huge collection of turrets, the marine equivalent of the WoL.

    res whoring - placing down as many resource points as possible (marine tactic)

    tech rush - a marine tactic; upgrading as fast as possible in order to rush the alien hive, usually to JPs and HMGs and probably using res whoring tactics.

    waypoint - a marine's current order as placed by the commander.

    spawn camp - to sit on/in the spawn of the opposing team and kill them as soon as they appear.

    lame / llama - someone or something or a tactic which is frowned upon.

    spray and pray - holding down the trigger and pointing in the general direction of your enemy in the hope that you will hit him.

    spam - randomly doing lots of the mentioned action, as in "med spam", also just "spam" as in "spray and pray" firing.

    bunnyhop - to jump continously in such a manner that you gain a speed boost from doing it.

    para'd / para'ed - short for parasited.

    para - short for parasite or paralyse depending on the context.

    tank - another word for heavy armour.

    bitegun - the skulks "bite" attack, taken from the console name for this.

    obv / obsv - some people use this for observatory.

    sens - sensory chambers.

    off - offense chambers/towers.

    rawr - this is either used after taking out a lot of marines, or after evolving to a high-level alien (fade, onos). probably in imitation of how the aliens make the noise smile.gif

    yes but is this silence viable against a group of marines (the way it was meant to be played) to take it over healing? (dcs healing OCs/hives/skulks/giving carapace)
    Not so sure. Nonetheless, I surely find it quite funny, and I'm sure I'm going to get a game or two of silenced skulking on my server since I dont make noise chomping either smile.gif

    Tagged - As Kharaa it means you've parasited specific marines (Is used in conjunction with other acronyms, e.g. I've Tagged 3 HA HMGs.) As a marine it means you've been parasited.

    Tagging - Means your intention right now is to tag as many marines as possible rather than just throwing yourself at them.
