STF- Special Task Force- used to be for Borg missions but generic term for all qued missions. 

DPS- Damage per second- a measure for a player's damage output

ISA- Infected Space Advanced- most commonly run space PVE que, the basis for the DPS league parses.

CLR- Combat Log Reader- An older parser that is used by some people in the game

IF- Intelligence Fleet- an ability that improves armor penetration only activatable by 1 person, the player will usual specify where in the ISA mission he will use it, i.e. "if right" would be" Intelligence Fleet would be activated by me when I reach  the right transformer"

Tf- Tactical Fleet- provides a damage buff, same as above with IF

t/if or tif- Player has both Tactical and Intelligence Fleet

WFP- Wait for Pets- wait at the start of the mission so that team can deploy pets- i.e. don't start until everyone is ready.

Not at all, I just wish everyone looked at this- I get asked "what is BOTSE?" or even 'what is ISA?" at least 5 times a day Smile

Hey Aaaict,

You might want to add Azure Nebula Rescue Advanced/Normal (ANRX) to the list.  You almost never see it on the DPS channels, but it's still good to know. 

Cheers,
