COLO or KOLO

I have some spare time on my hands, and I find more and more that noobs and nubettes do not know the basic and important grepo lingo. So here is a guide that teaches you all the lingo and the context it's used in.


First and most important word

Grepo: A nickname for Grepolis. Everybody calls it grepo for short, that means you will now call it grepo too because I said so.

In Context: "Hey dude let's play some grepo and destroy some noobs"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Second Word

Noob(or newb (if you are a noob) or nub): A person who has just started the game and does not know much about it, or a person who has played for a little bit of time but hasn't really been on a whole lot.

In Context: You
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Third Word

Nubette: Not really an official word, a friend made it up and said she was my favorite nubette. She spelled it that way too because quite frankly she is a nubette.

In Context: "Dude, you're a nubette"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fourth Word (no longer in order of importance)

Simming: When you get on grepolis just about once everyday, but you aren't as active as you could be and aren't really involved in much except for building 2 buildings a day, alliances don't usually like these dudes unless they're an MRA in which case they love them.

In Context: "This dude is just simming, shouldn't be a problem to take his city"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fifth Word, I don't feel like announcing the number anymore

MRA: While there are different definitions I'll give you mine. An alliance that mass recruits people, can be everybody in their ocean, be all the top players, all the active people, or just everybody. Most fail to get people, all those alliances that are ranked 15,16,17... etc are usually the alliances who tried to do this but they joined the more successful ones instead. Also MRA's are distinctive with their low player point average.

In Context: KANNA
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sixth Word, I lied, this is taking forever, i'm actually stopping now.

Rim(Rimming): When you take another person's city, most commonly said in the Rim A Mod achievement.

In Context: "I'm going to Rim Tyler Boyd"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Siege: For conquest worlds only, when the cs has landed at the enemy city.

In Context: "Your city is under siege by me, there is 11 hours to go till it's mine"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ALU(Or OLU): Attack Land Units(Offensive Land Units). Slingers, hoptiles,horsemen,chariots. Sometimes refer God units such as harpies or Manticores.

In Context: "Send ALU at horez"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DLU(GDU): Defensive Land Units(or Ground Defensive Units (thanks to W4RR10R)) , Swordsmen, Archers, Hoptiles, Chariots. Sometimes refer God units such as pegasus or centaurs.

In Context: "I need DLU in my city because it's getting attacked"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Birs: Birmes, the defence navy ship.

In Context: Send some birs to horez cause he's being attacked.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LS: Light Ships, the attack navy ship.

In Context: "Send some LS to horez cause we have to clear his harbor"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CS: Colony Ship, what you need to take horez's city.

In Context: " My cs lands at horez's city at 08:00"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nukes: A large amount of a specific troop or naval ship. Popular nukes include slingers, horses, ls, birs, harpies, and mantis.

In Context: " Horez has a cs in his city, please send all your ls nukes at him to break it"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mantis: Short for manticores noob.

In Context: "Check out my sick manti nuke"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hops: Short for hoptiles, used for both offense and defence.

In Context: "Need a hop nuke at horez's city, he has a lot of swords"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DBP: Defensive Battle Points

In Context: haha what a joke
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ABP: Attack Battle Ponits

In Context: "Horez has a lot of ABP, he should join"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RV'D: Another name for revolt. If you do now know what revolt is then here is the link http://wiki.en.grepolis.com/wiki/Revolt

In Context: "W4RR10R's city is RV'd, please send support!"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Horez: He's beast

In Context: He's beast


If I left out any please tell me and I'll add them, now you are no longer a big noob, but you still might be a small one.

Almost forgot this one

Spam (N) def 1: a type of food def 2: A bunch of posts that don't really mean anything but daedalus loves them. Make sure you give him some spam.

In context:
I don't like Spam
I don't like it here or there
I don't like it anywhere
I don't like Spam at all
Keep spaming and I'll ban you all

(Thanks to Daedalus...and Kyllman)
I've been playing Grepo for over 5 years, and I've recently run into a term/s commonly used that I've never seen before. I believe they mean Colony Ship, but I don't get the KOLO usage in that case. Any ideas?
