I will not add any abbr. for specific titans or builders, because they don't matter really and are extremely self-explanatory. Noone ever asked me what "cling" or "FB" means.

Some of those are very important though and I'll add them, if they aren't covered in another part of the guide (wallwalking for example).

Ice Lord is never called Abb. Common term is Ice.

For people that don't know what Ice Lord is, they say Abb, or Abber... Although it's technically spelled Aberration.

Not important those. I will add "stacking" though, because that IS in fact very important.

Further I will add focus-firing and nydus proofing to basing, but not as terms.

The one time I saw someone say abberation atleast 6 people in the game yelled at him for 5+ minutes that it was Ice Lord and then kicked him.
