Usually people mean "Gamersgate" when they use it here, since GG is one retailer that sells CKII.

DRM means digital rights management, a word for a variety of processes companies use to prevent people from sharing, reproducing or otherwise using their games without paying.

Yeah, Gamersgate was familiar to me because of the endless Steam/Gamersgate discussions (obviously more prevalent around patch and DLC releases) but recently I saw GG/gg mentioned in posts where Gamersgate didn't fit in the context. But Wikipedia saved me!

DRM was new word for me, too. I think both DRM and GG (both meanings) should be added to the list.

Nice thread !

Some suggestions:
"FoW" - "Fog of War" - Hides troop movements in provinces more than 1 province away from the player's realm borders, troops (including allies), or councillors.
"HK" - "Hunter Killer" - A huge army stack ? (not sure - was in patch 2.0 notes)
"Wincest - Concatenation of win and incest. Used as a noun to describe the benefits of Zoroastrian divine blood mechanic, which allows and rewards incestuous marriages.

Haven't forgotten since, alas, the problem lies in the fact that I can't edit the post as it is a locked thread :confused:

Was the generic word list really necessary? Even grandmothers know what LOL means.
