    FTW...FTL...epic win....epic loss ..............W-T-F?

    I know what they stand for, but just, when did these terms originate?

    Does anyone say in person "for the win" for e.g.?

    These terms quietly irk me lol. Daft, i know, but they do.

    I just picture geeks all sat round a computer monitor cackling away to themselves because someone hit an o instead of a p & typed out a word wrongly, and these geeks just cackle away to themselves saying it was "epic loss" & what not. Nope, it was just a typing error, nothing "epic" about it. & since when did so many non-epic things become so "epic" anyway?

    That's just my mini rant lol. I know others must surely feel the same about various net/text abbreviations, this one for some reason, just bugs me more than most.

    Even moredso because i almost found myself using it the other day
