Okay, what does it mean?

YOLO -

Seal clubbing - I know what this means in real life but in here?

And there is probably a few more.  But those two.

Someone should make a tutorial for that because I am an old man and can't understand some of this stuff. :cap_hmm:

Yolo -- to rush into an area with not a care in the world and immediately get blapped by the defenders. Or to go off anywhere that is not productive, as in "He just yoloed off to the edge of the map."

Seal clubbing -- also called noob bashing. Being an expert but going into low tiers and dominating new players.

YOLO means "you only live once".  Usually said right before doing something that is generally not going to end well.

Seal clubbing was explained above.

That makes more sense. Well, I will never be YoLO. I'm usually the last ship to move. I got tired of getting run over by other ships when I moved out to fast. Or put on my Auto-steering on the map.

Sometimes hanging back pays off. That award is the "Solo Warrior" if you are not aware. It's among the rarest of the awards.

YOLO, charge in and die doing little if any damage.

Sealing clubbing, this varies but to me it is any enemy team that is completely unprepared for the enemy team. Some look at it as experienced players beating up on unexperienced players.

YOLO is the acronym of "you only live once". Along the same lines as the Latin "carpe diem" ("seize the day"), it is a call to live life to its fullest extent, even embracing behavior which carries inherent risk

Seal clubbing is self explanatory really, you know, killing defenseless animals.

Your search engine is a great place to look for today's acronyms, remembering them is the hard part.

Wow! That be a great reward to get.

Most easily obtained by CV players due to their ability to hang back throughout the fight & be able to outrun the remaining red ships after the green team has held enough caps throughout the battle (before the rest die) to give a substantial enough lead that points run out before the CV can be run down & killed (was not as easy as the 2nd easiest way before the 0.8.0 CV rework as CVs used to be able to hunt down & kill the "out of range" remaining CV easier in the RTS version).

2nd easiest way to obtain one is usually by DDs (most of the time although any type of ship theoretically can earn one this way) that manage to cap out the red base while red team is all too far away due to trying to cap green base & being reset/delayed by the rest of the green team just long enough to reset the green cap enough that reds can't cap in time & can't make it back to their own red base to reset the DD (my only 2 solo warriors were this type both times).

Hardest (& should have a separate achievement altogether to distinguish it w/a more substantial reward) is what I personally call the "Earned Solo Warrior" which is actually ending the battle w/"all enemy ships destroyed" which of course requires you to actually kill the last 4 remaining ships & survive.

Seal Clubbing: What the Tier 10 ships do to the unlucky Tier 8 ships in the current match maker. (minus the Massachusetts)

Seal Clubbing : What the Tier 9 ships do to the Tier 7 ships in the current match maker.  (no ships of equivalents here)

I don’t think either of those have ever been referred to as seal clubbing by common wows culture. 

No tier anything ever seal clubbed another tier anything- the term exclusively refers to highly skilled people wiping their [edited]with low skilled people.

Except in co-op mode. The bots are unnaturally good at dodging torpedoes there (they know where they are at all times and exactly how much rudder/power to apply without delay), so you need to get in stupidly close in order to reliably get a full salvo home and sink something.  The upside is that the bots are otherwise relatively stupid, and you stand a higher chance of pulling this off than against a good human player. Not recommended against ANY human opponent who has any idea of what they are doing, unless they are terribly distracted by other things (e.g. your team-mates).

The only people getting seal clubbed in T7&8 ships is those who bought premiums without any prior experience past T4 or 5.

Seal clubbing has nothing to do with tiering, it's all about relative gameplay experience levels.

By your definition, a 1000 game Kamikaze vet isn't seal clubbing, because none of his targets are 2 tiers lower.

Well for me it's Seal clubbing, as the low tier ships can't see or reach out to defend, and get shot without seeing who was shooting.

Yes I know when a person that has 10,000 games plays his 19 point capt in low tiers is a definition of seal clubbing, but cannot the above mentioned be the same.

So just add it to your definition because it is what it is.

Carry on.

I was amazed how many responses it took to get to someone who knew what seal clubbing meant.

specifically in this game, good players from High tiers target defenseless new players (the seals) by playing lower tiers with maxed out boats (the club). also good to know... do not google the term... unless you want to be sad for the rest of the day.

How about "OP", seen it used in different ways?

 

For a thread started here, OP stands for original poster.

OP in reference to a ship means overpowered.

And Overpowered in common forum usage means "anything that stands between you and winning every battle you're in with what you have." I say this slightly tongue in cheek but I think the term has been significantly watered down over time.
