You kind of posted in the new player forum board, so you did get a lot of the explanation to your implied "new player" question. That's kind of what the board is about.

No a much less accurate term would be stuns.
You got roots, snares, fears, mezzes, stuns etc.
Already have people saying stun this or that when they really mean mez/sleep, don't want to confuse them more by lumping all forms of CC as "stuns"

One wow specific term I haven't yet encountered in swtor is: gogogogogo

But I'm sure we'll see it when the LFD tool arrives.

I wont lecture you, but, please, for other player's gaming experience, use standard terms to help people learn how the game works.

And i just really hate these terms, i mean, this is SWTOR- EMBRACE IT!!!
Oh, and i know the Devs use them to- remember, Bioware and lucasarts hired MMO staff, so they use the terms.

Still a lack of acceptance, or contrition, that what they originally said was just wrong. Now angry at being corrected so many times.

Well said.
OP - you posted with some incorrect 'facts' and a lot of people took time to correct you. You weren't being trolled, you were being educated. Unfortunately you didn't show any level of humility or apology that you'd posted things as fact when they were wrong, or thanks to the people that corrected you. You're probably lucky you posted in the new player forum because you would have just been ripped to shreds in the general forum

Anyway, move on and learn from your fail. No one will think less of you if you learn from mistakes ... only if you keep repeating them.

I don't know whether these terms come from WoW or not, but I come here after years of playing WoW, and that was the only other MMORPG I've ever played. I will say that I often don't use SWTOR terms because I'm just not used to them yet. Slowly however, I am converting.

Sorry OP, but most of these terms are general MMO terms. Please don't think that WoW was the only MMO and there was nothing before it.

While I have seen some stupid use of wow terms, such as people saying "auction house" when they mean GTN, which is stupid, since you can't auction anything there,
Why's it stupid? The GTN works exactly the same way as the AH except not as well.

What is wrong with you people, just because you are newbs in the MMO world doesn't mean you should be angry that the rest of us are using words that have been around for 15 + years like MOB, I almost spit my coffee on the screen when I saw that OP call that a random word.

So you haven't ever used the Auction House for it's intended purpose, i take it.

Go back to WoW for a trial, and look at the Auction House. did you ever notice the second price on stuff. that's a bid amount. in fact, you don't even have to have a buy price, and can just let people bid. it works like eBay.

The GTN has no bid. you pay what the seller asks for, or no item. They're different, and you need to at least know a little about your topic before you rage about it if you want people to take you seriously.
I am a Farker. What that means to you is that I speak my mind. If the above post was offensive to you for any reason, be glad that I won't even know if you ignore me. Welcome to the internet.
