WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???

Most people agree it is more fun to play Kings of Chaos with other people in an alliance; but for new players, communicating may be confusing because experienced players tend to speak in short-cuts. This brief guide is designed to help the new player interpret some of the more common verbal short-cuts. It is not meant to be a “how-to” but a way to at least understand what others may be talking about.

PR = Phoenix Rising...that's US!!


KoC – Kings of Chaos…common acronym/short-cut for this crazy game.

TBG - turn-based gold
This is the amount of gold you receive every turn; this amount is calculated based on the type of soldiers you have in your army and the number of each one.

UP - Unit Production
This is the number of units/untrained soldiers that you get every 24 hrs.

IS - Invisibility Shield
(main Defense weapon)

BPM - Blackpowder Missile (main Strike weapon)

Nuns or Chuks - Nunchakus (main Spy tool)

LT or Towers - Lookout Towers (main Sentry tool)

SA - strike action
This is the overall strength of your combined strike (offense) weapons and your trained and untrained soldiers.

DA - defensive action
This is the overall rating/strength of your combined defensive weapons and defensive soldiers

TFF - total fighting force
The total number of fighting men in your army; this number excludes spies and sentries.


STATS - statistics
- Your statistics can be found under Military Effectiveness on your Command Center page (upper right hand corner) as well as on your Armory page (middle left of the page); your statistics are made up of your Strike Action, Defense Action, Spy Rating, and Sentry Rating

BF - the KoC battlefield; may also refer to the Battlefield Section of the forums

SAB - sabotage action the purpose of which is to destroy the targets weapons and/or tools.

RECON = reconnaissance mission
Sending your spies in to another player's camp to see the status of their armory and army


MASS - when a group of people get together and make multiple attacks or sabs on a specific target or targets at the same time

BREAK - This is a single attack on a player who has just had his defensive weapons sabbed; the purpose of the break is to give a final blow to the sabbed weapons.

FARMING - An unacceptable habit of hitting the same target repeatedly in defiance of the target's farming rules, e.g. more than once a day if a PR target.

MERC = mercenary - soldier that may be purchased


PRCO or CHAIN ONLY - These are players who may be in PR chain of command, but are not actually full members of the alliance. Of course, "Chain Only" applies to any alliance.

CAPTCHA - These are the letters that must be typed in when you are buying weapons, reconning, sabbing, or even sending messages. Most actions in KoC require filling in a captcha. It is a contrived acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart", trademarked by Carnegie Mellon University.


AA - Alliance Affiliation
The little box on your Command Page where you can write a message that other players will see.

MOD - a moderator on our forums – someone who is responsible for monitoring activity and posts on a specific section of the forum

IRIS - Integrated Reconnaissance Information System
PR's game tool and probably KoC's best tool, since it performs different tasks such as:

1.- Store information about KoC players
When a PR member is logged in to IRIS and recons another player, IRIS saves the stat information after a successful recon; the recorded/saved stats would be Strike, Defense, Spy and Sentry.


2.- Look for gold
With the addition of the gold script, IRIS allows high spy members to look for gold for the other PR members by scanning the battlefield and using IRC; the script tells PR members the amount of gold a player is holding, his total fighting force and also shows the last Defensive action and the date of the last update.

3.-Record sabs
Every time a member uses IRIS while sabbing, IRIS records the sab and sends the information to the forums, transforming the amount of weapons into gold value which will in turn give you the total value of all your sabbing activities. For example, sabbing a BlackPowder Missile will be shown as 850,00 in your sab stats.

4.-Provide information about masses and general advice
IRIS provides information and pop-up messages about PR activities, such as masses or wars. If there's a mass going to happen, IRIS will pop up a window with the information about the mass, or any general information that might be useful to a player. It also will provide an alert when there are mercenaries available for purchase.
