TLDR; Help us out. Spell it out. 😉

 

Shouldn't that be: "Too long; didn't read?" ;)

I agree with a few previous comments, a lot of these names written feel like they weren't spoken out loud before writing.

How many times have we seen Kharadron Overlords spelled wrong before? Khadaron, Kharadon, etc. I event had to look at the webstore to remember how it was spelled out. Or I could just use KO. :P

It's even worse if you've played Warmachine.

Thanks for the replies - they make a lot of sense, so I can see why we are trying to keep things in plain English.

I mean, I have no idea what DPR means (it was mentioned in relation to save after saves).

 

My guess would be its 'Damage per Round' as Damage per second  (DPS) is a common way of mentioning damage output in MMO's.  Doesn't really apply to tabletop gaming.

Having a sticky thread with some commonly used acronyms might not be  a bad idea.  Could be very helpful for new players.
