MMO, MMORPG & it's slangs - Let's learn it

 Whether it's mobile/android/iOS, like the ones I play (i.e. Summoners War, AFK Arena) or PC one (e.g. World of Warcraft, Blade & Soul etc.) there are certain abbreviations we keep using very frequently. I am mainly a mobile gamer till date. So here I will be listing the ones I found very often be used in the games I play. Main purpose is to let my readers know the meaning when I use some of those slangs in my future posts. A big thanks to channel 108 of Asia server of Summoners War for helping me remember some of these.
