Darkfall Insider's Terminology 101: "Do You Even Lift?"

LuxuriousbubbabathLuxuriousbubbabath Bellingham, WAPosts: 7Member

Hi,

 

I've been scouring the Darkfall forum of late, and am impressed and weirded out by the level of inside jokes and overarching, shared aesthetic. This is the kind of thing I've only seen when people share a passion and connection to something, so it makes me almost freakishly excited to learn more about this game. It's like, I can see that there's something special about Darkfall through the eyes of its players.  I mean, there's something kind of damp and strange about it, but that just makes it more titilating. Is it okay to refer to the Darkfall community as "titilating"? 

 

Here is a list of the terms I have seen bandied about, and I'm hoping someone can offer some insight as to what each one means; I will fill in the answers in red as they "come at me":

 

1) "Do you even lift?" Tasos never actually said "do you even lift", it's an internet saying that people originally said to prove how tough they are over the internet, and it is now employed ad nausuem among the Darkfall elite.

 

2) GSO: Stands for Get Shit On,  (not df exclusive,  it's internet slang)

 

3) Derp: The sound that a so called 'retarded' person might make. Usage: if someone is ranting and off target, an opposing view might reduce the entirety of the ranter's stance to, merely, "derp derp derp".

 

4) Pixels: Used as a defense mechanism after dying and getting looted to emphasize that you place little importance on equipment.  "Oh no, don't take my pixels." Also used to describe people who are overly obsessed with gear: "Pixel Tard".

 

5) Robed Warrior: Someone who is too scared to put on their quality gear due to fear of having it looted, so they just run around in a cheap robe, while all their gear sits in a bank.  AKA "Pixel Horder".  Often heard saying "Derp derp derp".

 

6) "Fuck it, we'll do it live": Originally from bill o'reilly - - used in reference to Tasos/Aventurine deciding not to have a Beta phase for Darkfall (which is happening again with Unholy Wars, though some would argue that the original Darkfall WAS the Beta for Unholy Wars).  As in "Beta? Fuck it, we'll do it live".

 

7) Zag Raid:

 

If anyone would care to add to this list, please gimme some terms and I'll pop them into this post.

    1) "Do you even lift?"  Gym reference to determine your real life toughness, and nerd-level

    2) GSO  Get Sh*t on (something to say when you beat another player either in game or on forumfall)

    3) Derp Retarded

    4) Pixils Armor, weapons, gold, ingame stuff

    5) Robed Warrior (or something like that, I lost track of the thread)  Likely a reference to a percieved "ungeared or undergeared" player, (can't take someone's stuff if their not wearing anything worth taking)

    6) "Fuck it, we'll do it live"  Launching without an official beta test

    If anyone would care to add to this list, please gimme some terms and I'll pop them into this post. I'll add the meaning to each as they're explained. Thank you, Darkfall Community.

    It's only fair I warn you, being a long term player, this is a trollalalalalla community.  You'd think we all hate each other with the hard trolling...but its just a big game of troll....so must know that before coming in.  Also, Do you even lift?  If not....probably shouldn't come over.

    I was hoping Tasos actually said "Do you even lift" at some point, as well as "fuck it, we'll do it live".  Is that not the case?

    I was hoping you could elaborate on this:

     

    How does the term "Pixils" refer to Armor, Weapons, gold, etc.? What does that even mean?  And how did the term come about? 

     

    Did Tasos ever actually say "Do you even lift" or "fuck it, we'll do it live"?

    omg guy...

     

    pixels refer to the ingame items, cause thats how they are displayed through pixels, meaning when you die you lose those items (pixels).

     

    no tasos never actually said do you even lift, its an internet saying that people originally said to prove how tough they are over the internet, it turned into a joke to say the least. Fuck it we'll do it live is from bill o'reilly, the fact that you never... you know what i don't even... just watch this...

    Pixel - "A pixel is generally thought of as the smallest single component of a digital image."

    Used as a defense mechanism after dying and getting looted to emphasize that you place little importance on equipment.  "Oh no, don't take my pixels."

    (when taking items from a corpse you have to drag the little pictures from gravestone container into your characters backpack, so you are clicking on groups of pixels)

    and adding to th is, Tasos is kind of stocky...so, someone made a post a while ago about Tasos lifting weights...it stuck.

    QQ means cry or crying (I'm QQ - QQ more you noob!!!), used in most online games. Basically it means to look like two eyes (circles) with the tears coming down.

    What can men do against such reckless hate?

    It's pixels, not pixils!

     

    Also there was a beta for the original Darkfall.

     

    And yeah you are correct that ForumFall is a very special corner of the internet.. a result of great passion, many letdowns and a very competetive playerbase I would say..

    none of the aforementioned is original to the darkfall community, nor are the memes prevalent enough to worry about nor "inside" enough to misunderstand.

    you know what is original to the darkfall community though?

    "It's just pixels" is a common phrase in MMOs, especially when trying to help someone get over their pet/mount/loot that somebody just killed.

    hardcore ->  generally the game is too hard for me; Please don't kill me.

    "there are more important things currently" -> i need more time to use the exploit/bug, as i havn't figured it out yet, or not made a lot out of it yet.

    "we", "us", "everyone", "worldwide" -> I

    from what i was told, "QQ" has evolved from what was once the old battlenet starcraft menu "q" and quit "q" command. apparently when people tried to rage quit mid game they would often do it in a hurry and type qq in chat then log off.

     

    the "do you even lift" was probably something another player said to someone on the forums during a semi serious troll argument.  im not 100% but i wouldnt surprise me that someone got personal and said it in a serious manner at one point.  

    one should note that on the more recent interviews with tasos it showed him in a short tight sleeved shirt, leading people to many tasos related lifting jokes including the infamous community photoshopping tasos head on any and all things, putting the face on a body builder body.

    The current DF community is pretty tight knit, as any game with a low population has.

    Do you even lift came from a fight on a forums of body builders. Sadly the only thing I actualy saw that could be from DF is Pixels. Which isn't really known by memers yet.
