    i dont get the cleave names, no idea what each one means. no idea who comes up with the names either.
    Too cool for a signature

    None of those are actual names. As for the real names, I'm pretty sure they're just to make it easier to make strategies, instead of saying War/DK/Pally you can just say TSG, makes it simpler.

    because when you make a comp that works and play it at a competitive level, you get to name it

    and when someone can give their kid a retarded name, odds are they can give a name to something less significant that makes even less sense / is just as terrible

    My friend used to say TSG stood for "Tree Storm Grip" even though I later found out that it did not and was "teh super gosus" or something that is an inside joke.
    You get a thumbs up, pat on the back and a "way to go" from your label every day, looking boy
    Hey, looking boy, what you say looking boy? I get a "hell yeah" from Dre, looking boy
    I work for everything I have, never asked nobody for shit. Get outta my face, looking boy

    As a multiglad I can safely say I have never heard of the comps you named, though I think I know most, if you have any questions about what comp is which ill gladly answer it

    Yeah none of those are real names, and most are easy to figure out or a quick google search will find your answer. For example...

    Vanguards cleave - was the team vanguards played in S11.
    Jungle Cleave - Feral/Hunter/X (obvious)
    Thug Cleave (can at least tell it will involve a rogue)

    Before, the comps used to be about making a strong hard switch to a target and cleaving them down. Now... I think its just to give a ring to each name because literally every well known comp has become something-cleave or something-play.

    Never heard of those names.
    Most of the names originated from rage threads on AJ.

    For example, I remember the birth thread of "wizard cleave", somebody ranted about S8 casters and made a very beautiful paint picture, describing the pain of S8 with Wizard Hats. Wizards were born.

    TSG was also named after the players who played it first (I cant remember exactly who it was, valrath was one of the I think)

    Heres a list of almost all viable comps, if the name you heard isnt on the list, its not a thing.

    It was just their team name.

    Because calling every comp after the classes in it, ie RMP/PHDK, is boring as hell. Anyone remember spicy chicken cleave with DS trinks? Fire mage/boomkin/healer

    Teh Super Gosus. Named after the first competitive team that played it I belive.

    I like the cleave names, saying I play Man cleave is alot more fun than saying I play double warrior pally

    would be handy to have an up to date list of all the team comp names for beginners reference :3

    Cleave names have got stupid, I'd rather they just list class abbreviations than use retarded names like "kung fu cleave" to describe a team without a Monk. Plus whenever I see KFC I keep thinking of fried Chicken!

    Funny thing is UH Spec lost its Desecrated Ground ability so it doesn't really apply nowadays.

    Probably would be better off calling it the STD Cleave (UH DKs spreading AIDs), or Necrotic Cleave.

    The most obnoxious pvp'ers will name things considering everyone hears them due to their huge mouths and egos.
    Most comp names seem to derrive from them, spreading the retardednes.

    Some comp names are funny, some are just retarded (like "hitlercleave", really?)
