Hello summoners!

For a long time I never knew what the sertain lingo that is used in League of Legends and was confused and embarrassed sometimes to ask what things meant. So I wanted to post the current LOL lingo for everybody's information. Let me know if there is something I left out, I don't know them all!

To MOST of you these will seem obvious but just remember the first time you had to ask what these were! Just look at all the things League of Legends has taught you to say!

a lot of these were really unnecessary, cho is obviously cho'gath, cait is obviously caitlyn, ect. Others never used, like CP, JP, and TP for gankplank. TP actually stands for Teleport, don't confuse the newbies. This could be a decent thread, just not in GD.


P.S. you put pirate twice

Although some of these are fairly easy to figure out, it's still a great list.
