IIRC 'vanilla' is in this context used to describe a standard list, ie the normal druchii list as from the army book, not CoS.

The normal dark elf list, that you find in the book (so not the cult, patrol or garrison. Sometimes people also use it on army list that are very "standard".

Edit: I was the quickest gunslinger of all times. Until I met the one known as Mornedhel.

Also I've seen around D.net:

WoC - Warriors of Chaos

D.net - Druchii.net (obvious but abbreviation nonetheless)

AB - Armybook

And as we include ROFL, LOL, WTF etc. - the English-mangling stuff that the terms of service (basically) forbid..
(at least as FYI)

FYI - For your information (used when adding information that are either not relevant to the subject or to the part of the subject, that is discussed at the moment. Also used to create an aggresive/pseudo-ironic "epiphany" to make someone feel bad about himself/hermself while exploiting his/her consience [And FYI, I did LOVE HER!])

Woot (Wut)? - What? A sign of major confusion by something he/she said, posted and/or done. It's usually a reaction on something ridiculous and/or absurd. Examples:
Bad: Woot are you playing tonight?
Good: And now I deploy a high sorceress with an Executioner's axe and BA.
          You: Woot?

NOTE: Woot (Wut) may come without a question mark. Then it's less "are you REALLY doing this?" and more like "Oh,... wow". I know woot isn't an abbreviation, but I feel it's good to understand and it's, basically, the same kind of operation - saying less and expressing more.
If it's a problem, I'll take it out.


JK - Just kidding (very rare these days)

OMG - Oh My GOD!!

OMFG - As above but vulgar

NOTE: OMG is often used when he/she did something stupid, may substitute woot as an expression of astonishment. OMFG is OMG^2, it's used when he/she did something EXTREMELY stupid, ridiculous, that makes you want to hit your head against the table. OMFG is an expression of this anger. It's also used as extreme OMG in woot/wut substitution.


FTW - For the win. (e.g. Malekith FTW [ftw also possible - not case sensitive], means Malekith is the best, Woohooo, Malekith! etc.)

Some threadomancy? >_<

Also as a mod said further up in this all these terms are already available in the website's FAQ.

I know it's old.
But: It's sticky, so it won't move due to my post.
There is a direct link to this thread in some welcoming PM (or something like that) so I thought, I'd add something with no damage done. People who end up following the mod's post wont miss anything and those who don't, at least, learn something useful (maybe).
It's sort of necromantic community-service with zero risk.

Ah well, no worries. I didn't realise it was sticky, most of the stickies usually have Sticky: in front of the topic title. =)

Agreed, this sort of thing is useful for people to know. Especially for those that don't speak English as their first language.

FYI, a more recent thread has been created, with not only up-to-date abbreviations (the whole thread was Last edited by tmr on Tue Aug 18, 2009, i.e. ...yesterday!), but also a treasure of other useful informations:

Hyperlink => D.R.A.I.C.H. - Complementary material

That hyperlink is also in the D.R.A.I.C.H. first post.
The D.R.A.I.C.H. itself is stickied in the tactics forum.
Have a look, you'll be impressed!
and tmr welcomes you to provide any complement to his thread, of course!

The hell, I've never used Woot or seen Woot used like that, "woot" is more like "yay" or something.

"Woot! I made it!"

I've always understood woot to be an abbreviation of 'Wonderful loot'...so if something good happens (you get some nice loot...) you can say woot!
