Freya Hardmode Nomenclature

Postby Joanadark » Thu Jul 23, 2009 2:32 pm

I've noticed a ton of people recently have been referring to Freya's hard mode acheivement [Knock, Knock, Knock on Wood] as "KKK". First time I saw it i did a complete double-take.
"3 knock Freya" (verses "2 knock Freya" or "1 knock Freya") has a much better ring to it in my opinion. I've also gotten a kick out of hearing people call it "Freya 3-tree" in reference to "Sarth 3-d".

How did this whole KKK business start?

Personally, I prefer,

Freya 3D
or
Freya Knocked Up

Freya +3 is the best notation though for consistency, with the Yogg ones going Yogg -1, Yogg -2, Yogg -3 and Yogg -4

There's a sizeable population on teh intarweb that finds sly references to racism utterly hilarious. I blame them.

I always like 3-tree.

Didn't see "KKK" until a few days ago. Not a fan.
I used to play a paladin.

I usually just stick to + notation for everything where it applies, because it's just easier for me to type.

Sarth+3
Freya+3
Yogg+1

And so on.

I call it "knock, knock, knock."

I like, "Freya3T."

freya +3
yogg+0
Sarth10 3d

As someone said, theres always going to be someone who thinks "KKK" is a fun a joke. Usually they are 12 year old or don't know what the movement really meant.

It was shorter, still made sense, and I'm lazy. And KKKoW sounds like a Batman sound effect.

If people are offended, I can go to the batman version. It's still fewer characters and descriptive of the achievement. I think the only one I'm still calling by the boss name is "Vezax hard" - which bugs me because it sounds like he's walking around with an erection. And "I love the smell of Saronite in the morning" truncates to ILtSoSitM ... which takes long enough to work through and type out that "vezax hard" would have been easier.

Could be Vezax+1 (for the animus)!

Or Vezax -8 (I think it's 8 vapors you give up breaking)...

+/- notation encompasses all!
