A Free-to-Play (and not Pay-to-Win) MMO
focused around... well, tanks. Red Orchestra meets World of Warcraft
meets Battlefield 1942, in other words. Infamous for its bias towards Russian tanks, but otherwise a very original take on the Genre. Also has a large volume of Paper Panzers
that didn't actually make production in real life. AKA "WoT"
World of Tanks proves to us that a nice 105mm round is way better than any greatsword.

US gun terminology. Switching your gun from semi-automatic (one bullet per trigger pull) to automatic (keeps firing until you let go or you run out of ammunition). Typically refers to the function in the increasingly rare pre-1986 Assault Weapons Ban automatics though older guns (i.e. pre-1960s import ban) guns. Because of the very unlikely chance of someone buying an older gun for anything beyond having fun with it, the automatic mode of fire is instead used for pure entertainment value, as an excellent way to expend incredibly large (and expensive) amounts of ammunition in a very short period of time.

Royal Team: BASE RAPE TEH NUBS!
National Team: Noooo!
Person A: Why do they call it "base raping?"
Person B: Because it's like forcing someone to have sex with you. It might feel good for the perpetrator, but the other people of the world think it's wrong.
