LoL Dictionary, Updated o4/3o
I spend most of my time when I'm on LoL in the noob chat helping out people.
I've ran into a lot of people who didn't understand the lingo of LoL, or kept forgetting the terms.
Thus the LoL Dictionary is born!
If I forget anything, let me know!
Press Control & F to search up things.

Stat Terms
AD - Attack Damage
AP - Ability Power
MR - Magic Resist
AS - Attack Speed
CD - Cool Down
DPS - Damage Per Second
Carries - Powerful characters with strong AD or AP Stats. They're known to "carry there teammates to victory" at times.
True Damage - Is Damage done to the enemy ignoring the Armor stat they have, meaning it's like you're attacking someone who has 0 Armor.

GP - GangPlank
LB - LeBlanc
MF - Miss Fortune
TF - Twisted Fate
WW - Warwick


In-game Terms

Blue Buff - a buff for characters who use mana/energy & AP.
Red Buff - a buff for characters who are the DPS/AD carries of the team.
Bd- stands for back dooring, back dooring is the act of attack a separate tower while the rest of your team is busy working on another tower. The enemies are usually too busy trying to fend off your teammates.
Glhf - Good luck, Have fun, said at the beginning of games. Just gamer manors so to speak.
GG - Good Game, said at the ending of games as a respect to everyone's efforts.
Gj - Good Job, complimenting a teammate on killing the enemies.
Push(ing) - Is referring to getting down enemy tower(s). "Push middle lane guys." meaning get mid lane tower down~.

Jungling - is the process of not laning, but kill the neutral minions in the jungle for exp & gold.
Jungler - referring to characters that can jungle. Please note that not everyone can jungle.
Juke/Juked - Fooling the enemies as they're chasing you. Meaning you move over the wall, behind them, or trick them out. Shaco, Kassadin, & Ezreal are some of the champions that are very good at this.
Kite/Kiting - 1v1 baiting while you do damage to the enemy, without taking damage.

re - is a shorter version of "reappeared", as in the enemy is back from missing.
Fountain - is another name for the spawn area/pool & healing area.
MIA - Missing in Action, this term comes in very handy. If someone is missing from a lane, simply call out "InsertCharacterName Mia"
CC - Crowd Control, consists of Stuns, Snares, Fears, Taunts, Knock Ups, & Slows. (tell me if I missed one)
Nuke - Someone who can take chucks of the enemies out in seconds. Think of the nuke bomb hitting enemy, Boom goes there health
Baron(ing) - Is the super buff that can win you the game if obtained. The act of Baroning is killing Baron. See the "Extra Knowledge" section for more information.

TP - Teleport
Blink - slang for Teleport, &/or teleporting skills, EX:Kassadin's Rift.

Extra Knowledge
Magic Damage is known as Ability Power; in other words Ability Power is Magic Damage.
Generally, Characters that have AP Skills will most likely suck if you build AD.
Generally, Characters that have AD skills will more likely suck if you build AP.
Blue Buff - "Crest of the Ancient Golem" This unit regens 1.5% mana (or energy) per second and has (16 + Level*0.5)% cooldown reduction on their abilities. If slain, this buff transfers to the killer.

Baron Nashor - is the epic monster that appears at the 15 minute mark in game.
Baron (Buff) - "Exalted with Baron Nashor" The buff gives the wielders 40 Ap, 40 Ad, 3% of your max HP, in HP Regen, & 1% of your max MP as MP Regen. This buff is Baron is killed, will be given to all living champions, & cannot be transfered to enemies in the wielders are killed.
Always call MIA's
Users often refer to others by their choice of champion, so If I was playing Lux, you wouldn't say "RidleyOh, be careful" you'd say "Lux, be careful"
Ward - an item in the "consume" section of the item shop, which gives temporary vision in an area for a couple of minutes
Warding - the act of placing a ward
Counter Jungle - To kill their jungler in the beginning of the game to slow him/her down in there jungling. Also called "Gank the jungler"


For The Really "Noob"
Ult - shorter way of saying Ultimate, referring to your Ultimate skill/R hotkey.
Care - Short for Careful, meaning in shorter terms, be careful. (Obviously..)
Focus - Focusing a certain champion.
Top - Top Lane
Mid - Middle Lane
Bot - Bottom Lane

Q - Referring to your first skill, Q hotkey
W - Referring to your second skill, W hotkey
E - Referring to your third skill, E Hot Key
Last Hitting - Refers to landing the last hit on minions to acquire higher exp & gold.
Aggro - sometimes called Leashing, is to force jungle creeps to attack you, so the jungler on your team, does not take damage.


Used at Higher Levels (From my exp.)
Facecheck - Checking the bushes.
Lom - low on mana/mp
Oom - out of mana/mp
ArP - Another shorten version of Armor Penetration
CS - Creep Score, the amount of creeps/minions you killed.


Hopefully this has expanded your LoL gaming knowledge~
Like I said early, if I missed something, let me know!

RE: LoL Dictionary
How to pin. This should be included in like a tab or something in-game because there are a lot of people who think they know a lot of the terminology, but actually don't and when you say something, under the influence that it means something else, it can really hinder communication. Nice work.

could add things like:

PUG (not sure a lot of people still use it much, its being replaced with Randoms now)
Elo
Nuke
CC
Ult
facecheck
Baron (a lot of people surprisingly don't know what baron is, even at 30, it amazes me at times when you say Baron, and they just stand there confused)
counter-jungle
warding
GA

RE: LoL Dictionary
Might as well add on the usual types of shorties like:

AOE - Area of Effect; spells or abilities that effect an area instead of a single target or single target ones that also effect the area around them thus giving the abiity a wider range of effect.

DOT - Damage Over Time; abilities/spells that do damage over a period of time such as poisons, Malz's Nightmare, Noc's tether/fear,etc.

DC - Disconnect; when Riot fails us and we get severed from the server and thus have to take time to reconnect or restart client/computer

Leaver - Someone who for some reason leaves the game be it from parents yanking us off, thunderstorm, natural diseaster, rage quit,etc.

HELP - The one commodity we all need but no one ever wants to share. (Yes, this is a joke)

RE: LoL Dictionary
Most of the terms all of you left where either common sense, common gamer knowledge, &/or terms I've never heard of before.
I'm a lvl 30 who's been around for months, & if i don't see the terms, i usually don't include them.
I'll add the rest later on when my main computer gets fixed.

RE: LoL Dictionary, Updated o4/o8
You might as well add these:
ArP : Armor Penetration
Last Hitting is self-explanatory, but who knows...

Also you might tell about the kind of builds you can go for:
Tank: Character with lots of HP and armor/ magic resistance, whose job is to initiate battles with the enemy players/turrets as to draw damage onto himself and protect his fellow champions
Support: Characters who can help other teamates with some of their abilities
Also maybe telling what ragequitting is?

Hope this helped



Lock in your characters and let me explain
The tale of a man who's caused so much pain
Demacia is the place he was raised
If you listen to me you'll be quite amazed
To learn why he's the king of the Rift
The enemy, they're all scared stiff
The heart of a team on mid lane pushes
The reason your foes stay out of the bushes.
The heat of a battle, Garen appears
Down the top lane runs a river of tears
A beacon of light, watch his enemies run
On his back eighteen cloaks of the sun
The lane seems clear but it's hard to say
Is he in the bushes, is he MIA?
It's team fight time, he'll lead the charge
His scarf is long his sword is large.
