POLL: What is the abbrevation for "Tri-Realm"?

meddyckmeddyck USAPosts: 1,185Member Uncommon
In DAOC, we had "RvR". In GW 2 "WvW". In TESO it will be "AvA". So what will we shorten "Tri-Realm" to if CU funds? "TR"? "Tri-R"? "3R"? "Tri"? Any other ideas?

    You mean 12 years ago and yes I played DAOC too. But it will be called Tri-Realm in CU and we'll end up abbreviating that when referring to it so as not to confuse people who didn't play DAOC just like we'll call the realms by their CU names instead of Albs, Mids, and Hibs. Well I still might call TDD "Hibs" because "TDD" is meh. ;)

    RvR

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    What's wrong with 'TriRealm RvR'?

    Or do we HAVE to save on letters so it fits in a Tweet?

    Anyhoo, DAoC is TriRealm RvR and everyone just calls it RvR.

    DAoC is simply RvR. If not, they trademarked the wrong term. Drop them a line and let them know.

    I like Tri-R personally. But knowing our pension for reduction, I would guess 3R, or R^3

    It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom — for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself. ~Declaration of Arbroath

     I'll still call it RvRvR no need for new terminology when the masses already know this imo.

    TBH I've never seen anybody call it "RvRvR" before. It's always just "RvR".

    In Game of Thrones its House vs House vs House vs House vs House etc....

    RvR - can't get any simpler than that.

    Officially they may have to call it Tri-Realm... but I'll forever call it RvR.

    No need to reinvent the wheel here.

    Exactly, just call it RvR. Who cares about EA anyway?

    They can trademark it all they want but they can't stop the players from using it. So let's just call it what it is, RvR.

    First time I've heard "RvR" being referenced as "RvRvR" - That seems like a cheap ripoff of "WvWvW"

    My name is Plastic-Metal and my name is an oxymoron.

    In Game of Thrones, the fighting between the house's IS the Game of Thrones.

    With regards to the OP, maybe you should wait and see if there is actually a need for an abbreviation....

    A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not the desire to beat others.

    Precisely, it's rvr, it's always going to be rvr.

    I tend to think this is correct, but it might still be called "tri-duck."

    RvRvR is too long imo.  Something shorter like X3

    CSE will continue to refer to it as Tri-Realm, no abbreviation necessary.  The community will still use 'RvR'. ;)

    Hmm, lemme try an idea.

    Maybe an 8 to represent that we are in infinite war. Also 2 threes face to face form an 8. So, three relm war. I'll use a pacman symbol for war since pacman is kinda like the ultimate symbol for a never stopping devourer of innocence. So what do we have?

    Our 3 way fighting equals infinite war. 8=>

    That work for you guys?

    RvR, my mind can never call it anything else, just like the three realms are going to be Alb,Mid and Hib no matter what they are called.
