    GLOSSARY

    RSL
    Starting level is also called RSL. RSL is an acronym for: Recommended Survivor Level, as shown at the startscreen of your missions.

    RNG
    Acronym for: Random Number Generator. It's the programming that simulates randomness in the game. The feeling of luck, chance, probabilities, etc.

  • This is the kind of post we should have as a sticky. Moderators, is that something that can be done?
    Anyway thanks for the post I am bookmarking it for sure!

  • ty for starting this thread

    as i stated elsewhere, my recommendation would be to keep this in the General forum. that is the first place i went as a new player and expected to see something like this thread there. i didnt consider the strategy forum bc to me thats some place you go to discuss specific strategies once you become seasoned in the game, most usually to get past difficult missions. a new player wouldnt be concerned with those kinds of strategy discussions bc they are still in the learning the basics phase, which is what this thread is actually for

    i realize these forums appear to have a tradition established where all strategy discussions come here. however, i would expect most new players to operate under the same assumption i did, meaning they will go right to the General forum first and this thread will get far less attention from new players than it should

    Thank you for your support!

    I didn't:
    • in order to keep the stickies to a minimum
    • and to keep responses to beginners as a case to case thing, keeping it personal.

    This thread can be easily linked to when the occasion arises. A link to it is also in my signature.

    So far the use for it has been fairly limited, so I don't see the need to make it any more prominent than it is now.

  • The problem with it being posted in the general section is it would quickly be knocked down the list and would be impossiible to find after a few weeks (unless it was being searched for}. Thanks for your work @MadPuppy

    @WeekOne , not sure what the issue is please don't be toxic. You've said your piece already so stop spamming and move on. Last warning. Further disregard for the rules will result in loss of forum privileges.

    @zbot I thought the forums was for all members and since I see the thread called "useful links" I figured it was fitting to add that thread for n00bs and veterans to share. I don't see where spamming is coming from today?

    Am I limited to how many posts I can do in one day and which threads? I just want to understand. Thank you!

  • What does it mean to get a badge for posting? What does TG mean in reference to outpost? How can I find an avatar?

    Google avatar, other search engines are available
    Probably better searching "forum avatar" as most results come back with the 2009 Film Avatar

    Any picture can serve as an avatar - your real life pic, a character from media, a piece of cheese, or whatever else you can imagine
