Learn Some of the Basic Gaming Terms
You may have heard a few people who play online games spout certain terms like F2P, P2P, NPC or leveling up. These terms are what you might call online gaming jargon and, unless you are already an experienced online gamer, you probably aren’t yet aware of what mobbing, farming or hunting mean in online gaming. Here are some of the most basic terms that you may or may not hear from certain online gamers:
P2P – This term is short for Pay-to-Play and basically means that for you to be able to log-in to a game and to play, you need to get a paid subscription from the distributor of the game in your country or region. Usually, subscriptions can come in monthly, quarterly and yearly choices with discounts being given to those who opt for longer subscription periods.
F2P – This term is a shortened form of free-to-play and describes those games which can be played online without the need for any paid subscription. The fact that they are free doesn’t mean that they are low quality though; indeed, some of the best and most popular online games are F2P.
Bots – This term refers to those characters within a game which are being controlled by a computer rather than a human. Bots are generally more predictable than human players as they can only follow pre-determined scripts, however, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are weaker. Still, once you have learnt the typical behavior of a particular bot then they are not difficult to overcome.
NPC – This term means non-player character and this pertains to all harmless and non-monster characters in the game. These are usually the characters you approach to buy and sell weapons and armors from in the game, get quests from and learn in-game tips from.
Mobbing – This means to go on a mass killing spree in a short period of time. It is done if there happens to be a lot of weak players in the surrounding area or if someone want to quickly improve their characters points or reputation.
Loots / Drops – When you kill another character within a game you are rewarded with what is called loots or drops. These appear at the spot where the fatal blow was struck and can come in different forms. What exactly loots or drops are is dependent on the type of the character that has just been killed and what they were carrying. Typically though, you can expect them to be one, or a combination of, money, weapons, potions or accessories.
Farming – This term is related to mobbing and loots / drops, in that it applies to a situation where lots of characters have been killed in a short space of time, in a specific area of the online map, and, as a result, there are lots of items that can be picked up. So, a character that is farming is basically going around collecting lots of items from characters that have already been killed.
