Some of the terms used by players for gaming in general as well as game-specific jargon.


Boxing
Boxing is creating a wall around another player so he can't escape and will eventually run into it
Camping
Camping is when you basically box yourself (in a large box). By the time you can't go any further, the other players should have killed one another, so you can win. (On the server I play on), This is a dishonorable action and if you accidentally do it, you are expected to suicide. It also does not earn you points unless another player stupidly runs into your wall.
Doublebind
Doublebinding is what is referred to when more than one key is bound to the same action. A detailed discussion will not be provided on the Double Binding page.
Grinding
Grinding is what happens when you rub your cycle against a wall. If you are running parallel to a wall and you are very close to it, you will be grinding. A sound effect and sparks will normally accompany a grind.
kick
Kicking is when you vote to get rid of a teammate because they are causing a nuisance.
Lag
Lag is the difference between what you see on your computer screen and what is computed on the server which centralises all the different players info.
Rubber
Rubber is a mechanism that helps to account for lag. An understanding of rubber is only of arguable use, a detailed discussion is available on the Rubber page.
tk
Team-Killing is when a player takes out his teammates. This is often a mistake and very rarely intentional.
