>calling an NPC a "mob"
>calling your player character or avatar a "toon"
>calling a potion a "pot"

WHY DO PEOPLE DO ANY OF THESE THINGS!?
>>
The first one and last one are perfectly normal and I'm pretty sure this is bait.

They don't have autism so it doesn't bother them

>people get asspained over these things.

Whatever, I'm gonna go on my toon to kill mobs for some pots
>>
>>257518714
I call NPCs NPC's unless they're a monster, then i say monster... I call my player character, my guy. And I call potions potions and pots if I'm lazy

I would do so much to/for/with Rita you have no idea.

It doesn't exactly bother me, but I'd like to know how this started.

I suspect this, but others say it goes back further.
>>
I don't even get "toon"? What does it mean, "cartoon"? Is it implying all main characters are cartoons?
>>
>>257519358
>>257519457

I thought it was one of the retarded terms developed by the portion of the WoW player base that's made of baddies who don't play other games.

Like how they call a "pub" a "pug"
>>
>>257519687
Okay shortening the name of something is one thing, but just arbitrarily changing a character in the name of something is absolutely ridiculous.

WHO DID THIS?

watch both of these videos and then kill yourself

pug = "pick up group"

what the hells a pub?
>>
>>257518714
I agree with the toon part, and calling a non-combatant NPC a mob. But you're retarded on the rest of it.
>>
>>257519687
Pub?
I played wow for 5 years and NEVER EVER heard of the word toon. First time I heard of the term was in /v/

>>257520061
pub is shorthand for "public"

how have you never heard of a "pub stomp" or something similar in any other multiplayer game?
>>
>>257519687
Pug stands for Pick Up Group
>>
I hate it when people call controllers "remotes".
>>
>>257520506
I've never heard of pub used for a group either, started hearing pug with content finder type systems. Maybe hub? Those were places to meet new players to form up in older online games.
>>
I call fodder enemies mobs.
>>
>>257520354
That's how I think it happened. Fuck that.
>>
>Not calling them marios
>>
I've never seen "pot" but isn't "mob" a generally accepted term even outside of MMOs?

People who use "toon" for anything but WoW characters can fuck right off though.

>>257520354
Ah, it's like how old timey English slang got started than
>slang for fist
>use an existing slang
>"knives and forks"
>use a different phrase that rhymes
>"the dukes of York"
>shorten it
>"dukes"
>that's the new slang for fist
>"put up your dukes"
>>
Just came in here to tell you to go fuck yourself with point #1
