Any words out there that you hear people say, yet have no idea wtf they are talking about? just post here and maybe some of the community can help you out.

A couple i can think of off the top of my head would prolly be...

Carebear: This is someone who for the most part doesnt want to fight, and would rather sit around and mine/manufacture all day. It is usually looked on in a negative light.

DPS: which is damage per second, its calculated by multiplying your damage mod, with your ammo damage, and dividing it by your ROF.

Anyone know any other confusing terms? and is there a place on the eve site with any of these definitions?

actually it is on the second page, but it does not go very in depth, and as i see it, the term carebear in eve is really much more than just someone who dislikes pvp...EVE Search - Confusing Online Game Vocabulary? (27)

Podding and pod-killing. Now, my corpmates and I had a chat about this, and we seem to have a slightly different view to everyone else. "Podded" to me means "Ship destroyed, pilot now in pod". "Pod-killed" - well, self explanatory. But apparently this is not so?

Back in my Mordred days..

A 'Newbie' was someone who was genuinely new to the game, usually not very high level and completely clueless about PvP.

"Go kill some NPC's, newbie. You con grey to me!"

A 'Noob' was someone who could have been playing since day 1 and had all the best items in the world but still didn't know his elbow from his arse when it came to PvP combat.

"Where did you get that char, noob? You sux.. Ebay FTL!"

Thank you, I asked about carebear earlier because I took a very long hiatus from the game and its a new term to me... but one of the mods just gave me a stupid answer and locked the thread.

The terms armortank and shieldtank should probably be added. Also should add "gankageddon" and "blasterthron" and others of that nature.

I guess I could sorta be considered a carebear as of right now I'm not into PvP.

I'm not aginst it, I just don't really wish to risk something expendsive untill I have the ability to replace it.

Edit: I think they should remove the term PoS on that list cause POS as we know it now has nothing to do with a pod... if someone spots a pod.. they refer to it as that.

No, they are only a carebear when they whine like little girls and demand the game mechanics are changed to protect them.

Okay, not a game term so much as a forum one, but I really haven't figured out why after a fight some players give 'props' to their opponants. EVE Search - Confusing Online Game Vocabulary? (83)

I'm sure there must be a relatively straight forward meaning to this slang term, but I've not seen it anywhere else.

Anyone care to enlighten me?

'props' could be said to be akin to respect.
As in props (respect) to SUPRM for a good fight.

So what do you guys think should be updated on the page?

Heres a few that I can see..

Ganka---- Refers to a ship set up for maxium damage.

Blasterex Refers to a thorax set up with blasters.

Blasterthron Refers to a megathron set up with blasters

Tank Refers to the defence of a ship

POS Player owned station

Poc Refers to the apoc

4TW For the win

EDIT: Most of the tech 2 ships have common names which arn't in the dictionary yet.

All the terms I can think of that aren't in the dictionary-

PCS: Player Conquerable Station (NOT the same as a POS, like an NPC station only shootable/ownable).

Ebil: Like evil, only worse! EVE Search - Confusing Online Game Vocabulary? (92)

Kessie: Kestrel class frigate.

IBTL: In Before The Lock. Posting for the sake of posting in a thread you believe will soon be locked (because of the topic's content/subject).

Griefer: A player who kills/annoys other players with the sole intent of harming that player. They aren't doing it for fun or profit (otherwise, they are NOT griefers).

afaik = As far as I know.

Also, dreadnaughts are not titans. EVE Search - Confusing Online Game Vocabulary? (102)

Titans are large vessels for industrial use, not combat. Their exact uses will await to be seen but essentially I'm expecting a mobile form of POS.
