    BR, why and since when?

    ello!
    I have to write of my weird frustration, why do people all the time write BR (Battle ress) instead of CR (Combat ress). For me it has always been CR and everybody else have written CR, nowadays all I see is BR all the time. What happened?

    People just call it whatever they're use to.

    Personally, I call it Brez.

    Big thanks to Yoni for making this Avatar and Signature!

    From my experience, Americans use "BR" and Europeans use "CR".

    Slightly off topic but what happened to that well thought out idea behind "Rise of the Legion" topic you had? The one with the fancy artwork and so on?

    Even in other games with spells like this battle rez or BR is the common lingo used.

    Regional thing I imagine. It's always been BR any server I've played on.

    Always called it brez myself. Usually what everyone I have seen call it. Can't say I have ever heard of it called CR.

    Heard the term - Battle res in Vanilla/TBC and have stuck with it.
    Lets all go to the Blizz-store, Lets all go to the Blizz-store, Lets all go to the Blizz-store to buy ourselves some treats. Delicious things for geeks, the Pixels can't be beat. The Achievement points are just dandy, them sparkling mounts are quite handy. So Lets all go to the Blizz-store and buy ourselves a treat.

    I think, as other said, it's region based.
    Here in europe, I rarely se BR or Brez. It's mostly CR.
    Doesn't matter whatever picture I post here, "Scrapbot" will allways infract me for it.

    CR, that's always meant Corpse Run to me....

    As in: Damn man, this CR is ridiculous. Let's kite the jerks who killed us back in this direction if we can!
    And eight, eight, I forget what eight was for

    For as long as I can remember it's been "brez". Just say "brez". The last thing this game needs is more acronyms.

    Same as most other people on this thread, I've always used BR, since Burning Crusade at least. I've never heard of it being called CR.
