A tactic used in Warcraft 3 footman frenzy games. The process invovles spending the 2000 gold you have to upgrade your soldiers as oppose to buying a hero for 1900 gold (the usual tactic). It is highly debated whether this tactic, which is most likely carried over from the game this mod was based on, starcraft bunker wars (a game that featured no heros and a system that required "teching"), is second nature to starcraft vets or a cheap win tactic created by newbs. Either way, it is usually effective and destroys other low level heros for a quick start easily making it a hated tactic by "non-techers".

There are two different worlds in Endless-Online. You have, the in-game community that consists of idiots, morons, people, more people, and more idiots. Then, you have the Endless-Online forum community; which is TOTALLY the opposite of the in-game community.(Not really, but you get the picture.)more...
The game is created by Vult-r using the C+ engine and is currently sponsored by Layered Tech. The game has several admins but the majority of them are not helpful and can really give players a hard time.(Except for Arvid. He's the best.) Many of the admin's handle in-game issues in an unjust manner so don't be surprised when you get jailed or banned without a warning. The admins will not bother launching an investigation. The most effective way of getting out of the jail system, is by talking to an admin over an instant chat messenger and persuading them to let you free.
The endless-online forum community is full of forum trolls. It is definitely not for the weak hearted. You can expect insults and vulgar language to be in every topic you read.
I really don't have much more to say about this game; other than I dislike it a lot. I still check on the forums every now and then because I get a laugh from it.
But don't take my word for it, check th...
Someone who is new to technology. A non-geek.
Anything new has a tendency to invoke fear, wariness and distrust. Newcomers to the technoscene are commonly assailed with pejoratives: but we were all newbies once; and every one of us remains a noob in some field of human endeavour - nobody knows it all.
The term 'technovice' is a more polite, welcoming term. It says, "Hi there friend, I see you're new here, do you need a hand?" whereas "FOAD you loser n00b!" simply pollutes cyberspace.
The word can be read as 'tech'+'novice', describing the present state of the user's knowledge (or rather, lack of it): but hidden within is the suggestion of things to come, when read as 'techno'+'vice' :)
"Mandy's a real technovice, I had to show her where the power switch was on her PC."
n.(in ter dyu cat' shun) Education of and/or about things on, of, and relating to, the internet. (Not commonly practiced in schools, but we're working on it.)
v. Interducate: to educate one about things on, of, or relating to, the internet
I just received an interducation on creating a web page.
Someone that always thinks there is something wrong with their computer.
Adina is a complete electrochondriac. All she does is complain about her laptop.
DoS or DDoS can refer to a "Denial of Service" or a "Distributed Denial-Of-Service" attack.
A DoS Artist is a person that will attempt a DoS attack on a server and tell their friends that they actually hacked the server. This type of person makes their entire "hacker life" all about staying holed up in their rooms to try this attack on other people or servers, usually so they can brag about it to their friends some more. These types of people are also often associated with "Script Kiddies"
'John' isn't a hacker, he's a total DoS artist... That's all he does.
