    Pf - Pathfinder
    While yes this is correct you often also hear pf referred to as mario, less because of the beard and more because of his ability to kill things by jumping on there heads. (Engi and sometimes fo also referred to as marios, mostly cause of the beards tho)

    Billy T - Nickname for Ability.
    Darcy - A fat bitch.
    Pulling a Kith - Actually has two meanings; either it involves tanking something incredibly well and surviving something that should not have been survived (such as a nuke to the face), or dying in a completely retarded fashion due to overconfidence.
    Pulling a Shooz - :]
    Pulling a Nite - Nuking the team or applying murder to a boss
    Flintlckwooding - Shooting things to death with the pistol. Most commonly used to reference Commandos doing so.

    Here are lots more. Some of it is outdated though, working on that right now :)

    Edit: Updated better, let me know if there are still some outdated issues.
  7. Extifer
    • Warden
    • Donator

    Extifer Stiffy is what Lyanden calls me.

    I call this pulling an extifer, aka when you use Pathfinder to jump smash at least 4 banelings and live to tell the tale.

    Bonus: Killing a festor as well.

    All in NM mode btw.

    "Parrots" is jargon for the broodlord unit
  11. Ramses II
    • Donator

    "the broodlord units" is jargon for Lelanthos.

    It's not really, considering that "Broodlord" is the name given to the unit model in vanilla sc2, you know, the thing you have to have in order to play NOTDNA.

    sooo face tanking a titan and surviving is "pulling a kith"?

    Miracle NOTD Staff: Assistant of many things

    I suppose the act of reporting someone to Community Watch simply because he or she is unknown and has questionable amount of experience "Pulling a Thermidor"?'

    I didn't actually report him to comm watch but yeah I remember that game. Archangel had the name "Titan" if I'm not mistaken and I never heard of a "Titan" on the EU server so I got suspicious because of his high exp. All was clear when he said he was Archangel from NA.

    Good times!
