I did a search and did not find this in the word list.   maybe needs some discussion for better understanding.
dis·per·sion
/diˈspərZHən,diˈspərSHən/
noun
 
  1. the action or process of distributing things or people over a wide area.
    "some seeds rely on birds for dispersion"
    • the state of being dispersed over a wide area.
      "the general dispersion of Hellenistic culture"
    • ECOLOGY
      the pattern of distribution of individuals within a habitat.

 

Dispersion is kinda confusing but is a good rating for accuracy. The value you see suggests the maximum distance in meters that your shot *can* deviate from the center of your reticle if you're fully aimed in. The value, if I recall correctly, is for 100m from the target. Accordingly, your dispersion will increase a bit the farther you are from a target which makes sense.

 

Lower dispersion = better gun.

Just been browsing through the backlog of comments on this thread and see there's a lot of terms that need to be added/adjusted. It's been a pretty long time since I've played so I'm quite unfamiliar with the new nomenclature and colloquialisms for the new tanks, perks etc, so please let me know what you think needs to be added to this glossary!

-Spagetto/Pasta Tanks: Referring to the new Italian tanks (t7-10), the former is more specifically the Progetto (t10)

-"WZ Fake Tank" refers to the OP Chinese TD: https://blitzhangar.com/en/tank/wz-120-1-ft

-"Fake Tanks" as a whole refer to fictional tanks added to the game. Drac, Helsing, Smasher, Predator are some of the most prominent ones. Usually seen as "Fk fake tanks" or some variant after one is blown up by such a tank

-Can't believe you don't have "meme tanks". Played for sheer hilarity and trolling. Prime examples are UE 57, TOG, and T95.

-"Lucky Player" is an upvote as part of Military Honor. As opposed to the other upvotes, this one is typically reserved for that one lucky SOB, or given to a clanmate to anger them. It definitely has a negative connotation, kind of "You don't have any skill, you were just good because RNG".

-RGN is the top clan in NA right now. Mostly made up of former PRAMO members, they just were crowned regional champs and came in second to 7STAR in Twister.

-7STAR is a Russian clan with mostly former C4 players. They beat RGN in the Twister Finals.

-ATGM tanks are a hot-button topic right now, they are being re-introduced as Tier 9 and 10 tanks in the American tech tree. The guided-missile mechanic provokes much rage.

-"Newb Bay" and "Dynasty's Hurl" are popular names for recently introduced maps New Bay and Dynasty's Pearl. Needless to say, they are not very popular.

-Horrorstadt was the Halloween version of the Alpenstadt map.

1. Ribble (RibbleStripe is his full name):

(proper noun)

The current WG community representative for NA, ASIA, and EU servers. He's the one that primarily posts on the forums and Discord about news. 

 

2. Bait

   a. (noun) one or more tanks placed in a position that draws the enemy to that position. Primarily used to then flank the enemy with the main force from the side, or to lure the enemy away from a cap position. The bait tanks usually die but no victory is made without sacrifice.

(e.g) The slow heavy took the bait role while the rest of the greens flanked the reds hard from the side.

   b. (verb) when in combat with an enemy, to make the enemy shoot the gun and miss and then either relocate or retaliate while the enemy is reloading and helpless. A player usually baits the enemy with their cupola or tracks and pulls back right as the enemy shoots. 

(e.g) The skilled player knew the enemy was aiming for his cupola, so he pulled back right at the last moment and was able to run away safely without getting shot.

 

3. Discord

(noun)

A free chat app that has essentially replaced Teamspeak and its competitors. It allows people to create and join servers of text and voice channels. Most commonly used form of communication these days for the entire Blitz community, including NA, EU, ASIA, and RU servers. WG has set up an English and a Russian official Discord server with 45,000 and 80,000 members respectively. In addition, nearly all competitive clans have their own Discord servers, most of them having a private area for their clanmates and a public area for anyone else that wants to be on their server. PRAMO currently has the largest NA clan server with over 2000 members. 

Discord features a "role" system that allows players to have certain permissions and viewing access. For example, a person may have a role that allows them to see a certain locked channel, or have a role that allows them to ban or mute players on the server. In addition, Discord allows features bots that can perform certain activities for the server members, such as provide a moderation log, play music in voice channels for members to listen to, and even can play games with members.

- _Cletus is the best looking player in NA.  He's probably the best looking in the world but he hear's Ribble's pretty hot so he's just claiming the NA title for now.
