Unicum!  I have no idea what it is but I've seen references to it in the Forums as of late.  :amazed:

The phrase putnamJavi offered, of whose meaning he was unaware of, was "unicum." I didn't think the mods would appreciate that term being defined in detail. For all intents and purposes, "unicorn" means the same thing, but is less vulgar.

Mods are OK with it. It's used all the time on the PC forums.

A google search of "box tank wot" seems to associate that term with the SU-100Y, but if you find any sources that point to the Tiger I, please let me know. 

Well I made that one up....tiger I is a almost perfect square the su-100y is more of a large......target....so I adjusted the names to such

Nice, dude. Start using it in gameplay. Who knows, maybe it will catch on?

Awesome guide - well done Triarii! :medal:

 

Block Quote

 

55.INB4/I Know Before

phrase

1. a shorthand way of saying "I Know Before."

e.g. "inb4 we're going to get slaughtered"

 

Usually "INB4" I believe means "In Before" as used in forums - it usually means I am getting my comment "In Before" the thread is locked or deleted.

 

Your explanation for "LOL" I believe should be "Laugh Out Loud". As in "That Panther tried to ram me in my T-150 and ended up killing himself, LOL! Way to sui-scout n00b."

I suggest "Drive wheel" - maybe a bit too self explanatory but won't be obvious to n00bs.

 

The geared wheel on a tank's track that connects to the transmission and turns the track. "Shoot the drive wheel to have the best chance to track that medium before he can flank us!"  American and German tanks tend to have the drive wheel at the front while Russian and British tanks tend to have the drive wheel at the rear.

Sprocket, I'm pretty sure many players in Blitz don't even know what it means.

Excellent. Thanks for reading through the glossary and pointing these things out. I'm going to be adding a few things here shortly and when I do I'll make sure to edit the above definitions. Thanks again.

Just a heads up: The "WoTB terms, phrases defined" post has exceeded the maximum allowed character value. In other words... it's just too dang long. Keep leaving your ideas for new definitions and once this is remedied I'll be sure to add them in. Thanks.
