    Lightbulb Nomenclature

    Nomenclature: noun: a system or set of terms or symbols especially in a particular science, discipline, or art.

    Once you have been playing a while, you and your CoC clanmates/community have likely begun to create a naming system for specific actions. A simple example might be "leveling up" meaning to upgrade your Town Hall. Even "Town Hall" is commonly indicated as "TH"

    So this thread is for sharing your unique examples of nomenclature used within Clash of Clans.

    I'll go first:
    "Daddied": verb: to be attacked and 3 starred by a mass hoard of lvl 6 Balloons. May include some support troops esp. Minions.
    Usage: " Oh man, I checked my base this morning and found I got daddied overnight....

    Origin: Named for the CoC youtuber/forum moderator who made this type of attack popular.
    ------

    All right clashers: What words/terms do you use to describe specific CoC items, actions, or situations?

    ok here's one I use from time to time

    "Bank of noob": phrase: Making a withdrawal from the bank of noob
    Usage: "Oh cool my troops are ready, i'll be right back, going to make a small withdrawal from the bank of noob" - a term to describe farming other players with less well developed bases

    I refer to all raids on my alt as "punching babies". Why? It is so easy that it makes me feel like I am punching babies.

    To be "HB'ed":

    to lose a debate to someone with better rhetorical and debating skills, particularly when your argument was stronger to begin with.

    to "Jungliang":

    to troll someone by purposefully misspelling their forum handle when you suspect that it'll annoy them. No offense Jun.

    If you need to ask "Should I upgrade my Townhall?", the answer is no.

    Eggcrate:

    A base with many walls overlapping each other with only a few key defences and buildings inside. Many buildings left outside.
