I see abbreviations alot in the forums and often times don’t know what the hell you guys are saying lol. I need help understanding. Some examples : CC, Bob, Mad Mags, I’m sure there are plenty but these are just the few I can think of right kow.
CC is crowd control, Bob is Behemoth, Mad Mags is Wasteland Maggie.
I figured Mad Mags might be WLM. But I don’t understand why lol. We’ll is that all of them?
