Hi People! I'm pretty new in the wolrd of aoe3, I started to play it 2 weeks ago and I thought that it would be nice to join an aoe3 community thus I could get better at managing my colony, but I find very hard to understand some posts here and that's because I don't undesrtand many of the abbreviations you use but I googled some of them (the most obvious i must admit) for instance: I thought ASAP was an strategy lol... but it is as soon as possible.
There are some others i canīt find by searching on google or other web searcher. Could someone post a reply with a list of the most used abbreviations and acronyms in the forum? I would appreciate it very much! Thanks Guys!

Welcome to AOE3Heaven, djtato87!

The link Marneus Calgar provided will give you most of the abbreviations. If there are any that you still don't understand post them in the Question & Answer sticky and someone will tell you what they mean.

Giskard: BrianManahan = Tsar_Ivan_VII? Discuss.
Giskard: BrianManahan = Tsar_Ivan_VII. It's no longer a question.
Giskard: Isn't BrianManahan liable to be banned anyway for being the smurf of a banned forumer (Tsar_Ivan_VII)?
BrianManahan: I'm not sure who that is, Giskard, but I see what you is trying to do. I don't smurf >:O

Welcome, I joined 2 days ago...

when i first looked at the forums i could not fathom it when ppl said
"i had a double rax"
"Spam musks to counter the h cav"
"lol he was pwned!" ---Still dont know exactly why ppl say pwned, something to do with chess i think...

I'm guessing that it is because P is next to O, and so at first it was a typo. But soon became a common variant of the word.

No idea though :P

You're right, it's just a common typo that has become, or will become, a common word. Its the same as how people type "zomg". They try to type OMG, but they hit the "z" key instead of the shift key.
