One thing I constantly run up against is the sheer number of acronyms involed in gaming. WitPAE has done it's share to continue the trend. While not the dimest blub around, it has taken me a while to translate these into words I can understand . Obviously either I do not a) play enough, or b) read the forums enough, lol.
I took me awhile to understand the following
DEI = Dutch East Indes (Not sure why this was a mystery as it makes perfect sense now)
KB = Initial CV task force that bombs Perl Harbor (which I understand most Jap players keep togeather for as long as possible)
However, I still have issues understanding the following
JFB = ?
Baby KB = ? (is this the CVL fleet at the start?)
If anyone has other acronyms that they would like to add, I would love to see them as long as they are sepecifcly AE related. Who knows, it may make me a better player, lol. God knows I can use the help
Thanks in advance.
JFB= Japanese fanboy
AFB= allied fanboy
Baby KB = this is the CVL units at start.
KB = Kido Butai refers to the grouping of the fleet carriers
There used to be a post on the WitP site that had a list of the acronyms but I couldn't find it.
