    Well when playing WoW ( actually that is already shortened) I shorten all of the basic gamer words like "lol", "omg", "ffs" and then instance names and so on.
    What do rogues and noobs have in common?

    RTFM?

    OT: My most used is probably "wtf", because of all the "omg" these days

    Edit: I found out what RTFM means.

    Abbreviations and Acronyms are not the same thing and shortening a word.

    In my opinion:
    Saying lol or brb is acceptable as an accronym. Saying "ur" instead of "your" is just lazy and makes you look ignorant.
    I also really hate when people call Heroics, hc's. It just doesn't make sense.

    I try not to abbreviate too many phrases. The only ones I can think of are lol, brb and afk. I only use ty when I'm competitively playing League of Legends and can't spend too much time typing. I need to be really focused on everybody's locations.

    Actually, I think I abbreviate most dungeon names as well but only in text, I don't actually spell out any of them verbally. AV is the only battleground I abbreviate.

    Nothing can hold me back!

    Since you seem to like nitpicking, BRB isn't an acronym, it is an initialism.

    As for calling Heroics HC's: I herd u liek DeoxyriboNucleic Acid, united states Special Operations COMmand, KaNINE, OKay, AlasKa, ElektroKardioGramm, FooLy CooLy, FallOut 3, DataBase, etc.

    My favorite is easily gl;hf.

    I'm sorry.

    You seem to be missing the point. The complaint isn't shortening "heroic" to "hc", the complaint is with adding in a random apostrophe for no reason. People don't understand what apostrophes are used for. Changing "Heroics" to "HC's" means you're either saying something belongs to the heroic (the heroic's handbag? - doesn't make sense) or you're saying the heroic IS something (this heroic's hard, please nerf it!). Saying "LFM random hc's" doesn't make sense.

    People need to learn how and when to use apostrophes and not just randomly throw them into sentences when they see fit.
