Abbreviations used in DCUO

Discussion in 'Gotham City' started by ARCHIVED-Prozacpostergirl, Dec 12, 2011.

  1. Ok, so I am fairly new at this and upon reading the forums and chat windows I am learning slowly what each abbreviation stands for (or think I do.) I looked on the forum search for all the different meanings for abbreviations used in the game and couldn't find one, so I thought it would be nice to start a thread for the noobs (such as I) since it all looks chinese to me.

    I have not added any because if I feel bad enough not knowing in the first place, and I don't want to misinform anyone because It's a guessing game for me.

    It should be Damage because everyone can do damage per second lol Or DD for damage dealer i am used to that term
  14. CC Central City (DLC)
    KF Kid Flash
    DT Donna Troy

  15. See the problem?
    CC = Captain Cold e.g. cc under deathstroke
    CC = Central City e.g. lf group cc bounties
    fortunately, no one says CC for Coast City
    WW = Wonder Woman e.g. can ww mentor let me in electronics
    WW = Weather Wizard e.g. ww in parking lot

    That is why you say "cc is up" and weather wizard isn't a mentor so that's kinda obvious
