    Post The Clash of Clans ACRONYM Dictionary! (Clash phases and their meanings!)

    Clarification: this post is in general because it does relatively relate to clash in a way.

    All clans are different. You'll find it interesting that many clans use teh same acronyms.... way too much! Here are some of the most commonly used clash acronyms:

    Used everywhere

    lol = laugh out loud
    brb = be right back
    gtg = got to go
    bbl = be back later
    cya = see ya
    ikr = I know right
    ik = I know
    ttyl = talk to you later
    tbh = to be honest
    imo = in my opinion
    gj = good job
    nj = nice job
    nw = nice work
    ty = thank you
    yw = you're welcome
    np = no problem

    Related mainly to Clash of Clans
    (and a few other games) (many of these can be singular or plural)
    CoC = Clash of Clans
    barb = barbarian
    arch = archer
    gob = goblin
    wb = wall breaker
    loon = balloon
    wiz = wizard
    drag = dragon
    min = minion
    hog = hog rider
    valk = valkyrie
    hound = lava hound
    at = archer tower
    ad = air defense
    air d = air defense
    wt = wizard tower
    wiz t = wizard tower
    bk = barbarian king
    aq = archer queen
    bh = builder's hut
    hut = builder's hut
    lvl = level
    lv = level
    atk = attack
    cw = clan war
    de = dark elixir

    BB = Boom Beach
    SC = Supercell
    HD = Hay Day
