This may be true to some extend, but when the game already gives the neccessary terminology everything else is just self-placatation without any real value. The point isn't about using terminology when available, either. It's about inferring some kind of superiority and flat-out dismissing arguments that have nothing to do with the terminology whatsoever. This happens all too frequently on this forum. And if I remember correctly, I am not the first one to point that out either.
Your argument comes down to this: If someone uses terminology that is not generally known, the person is just asserting his superiority over everyone else.
This is emphatically not the case. People use these terms because they best describe what is being talked about. People who are familiar with such terms also like to use them because
they are familiar. Terms like AA, AAA, SAM and MBT aren't used in the game, yet everyone uses them because they properly describe what they want to talk about and the people using them are familiar with their meaning.
Besides, the term "MANPADS" sounds too funny not
As for flat-out dismissing arguments, this often comes about because if two people aren't arguing from the same definitions, then they are not even arguing the same thing, essentially meaning you just have two people just yelling stuff while happening to occupy the same space. Simply put, there is
no argument. In the case with you, your argument regarding SAMs carried by infantry wasn't so much flat-out dismissed as you weren't actually arguing with the other person because you two were using different terminologies.
Again, a terminology debate. In no way shape or form does it touch any of the arguments in this thread.
If you're not familiar with the terminology used in an argument, you're really going to be unable to effectively argue for or against it.
I am not going to discuss terminology or plain nonsense.
Again, if two people aren't using the same terminology in their argument, they are really arguing with each other.
not that they never have a golden run in 1 out of 100 games. The probability for that to happen is actually quite high. If you're discussing quality of units, the important factor is versatility, or, the "amount" of usefulness of a certain unit over a streak of games.
You provided one video as your evidence, and it was a lone Roland that was panicked. I provided a single video of evidence, and it was two Rolands against two Mi-28's. One anecdote to counter another anecdote.
