Default List of abbreviations and specific terms commonly used in Regnum

A lot of abbreviations are used in Regnum, which I believe can be a little confusing for new players. That's why I decided to make this list, so that it's a little easier for them to understand what is going on. I know we don't really have that much new players anymore, but let's be optimistic and hope at least one person will find this guide useful.

GENERAL

Added those, thank you.

I originally didn't add terms like "nvm" or "omg" as I wanted to keep this thread for terms used only in RO or MMORPGs in general, but I guess it can't hurt to have them here. ^^

Correctly it is spelled "acá" and it is used mainly in south america, especially in Argentina. In Spain and other spanish countries they use the word "aquí" instead of "acá"
