Fighting game lingo you find annoying

As streams get more popular it seems as if players have become more robotic in their vocabulary and just seem to copy one another. So what key words, phrases, or memes do you find particularly annoying and wish would just disappear?

Personally atm the term fraud or fraudulent has been getting used way more than a cheap hookers snatch. Not only is it annoying, but I dont even know what fraudulent is anymore because it seems anything and everything is considered this by everyone.

The 8.95 meme was funny for the hour it started, then it just became stupid as shit.

I use to hate the term MAHVEL when MvC3 first came out but that one has since died down a bit (since people have realized MvC3 does not classify as Mahvel).

    Real talk, I always thought the term 'footsies' sounded gay as shit.

    I don't know how regular SF tournament attendees can go around saying it with a straight face.

    I hate the term 'Happy Birthday'.

    I know getting 2 characters at once in Marvel 3 is death, but damn, can we think of a better name than 'Happy Birthday'?

    - Lamed out/Lame it out: Why is it lame to play a keep away game?

    - Broken: People forgot what this word means or don't know its meaning.

    - Deal With It: This one annoys me because we say this to everyone who cries about stuff, then when developers cater to them, they throw it right back at us. Hypocrisy much.

    - Rare footage of Daigo doing something.

    - Free/Stay Free: Don't know why a lot of people use this; I doubt most of these ppl could win a MM against any of these players and you can't do money matches over XBL/PSN.

    - Random: Another word people don't know the meaning of.

    "In the Lab" - I know it has its origins outside of the FGC, I guess, but it still sounds lame as hell. Same for "technology".

    I should have added this in my original post as I want to pull out my hair when I hear a lot of stream commentators talk about new techonlogy... especially in the mvc3 world...

    In the MvC3 world apparently using a different assist for your teleport mix up or using a different assist to extend an OTG combo is considered technology. Blows my mind.

    I find the use of the term "technology" to be incredibly annoying. Technically it is being used in the right sense in terms of the dictionary definition, but it just sounds weird when its not being applied in a non-engineering sense. Its not like you created new software, you've only discovered how to take advantage of the currently existing one.

    I think "run-back" is also annoying because this isn't a football game. What's next? When it's the final round, is someone going to say: its fourth down, here comes the hail mary ultra for the win! omg!

    EDIT. Turns out run back is already accepted urban slang.
    You shouldn't care about the division between ST and HDR, but rather the message you are sending to tournament organizers if you stop supporting the classic style of Street Fighter II.

    all of them are stupid. you can't see a headline from iantothemax without seeing "technology" in it, he sounds like a 15 year old that wandered into the room and desperately wants approval. "Get hype" has always been stupid and probably moreso more than any other term because of the mouthbreathing attempt at forced grammar negation. and if any of these terms are said now, it's not by whoever came up with it, so it makes everyone that uses them sound like a plagiarizing faceless retard.

    "Mahvel" basically used for people who got into mvc2 late or have no idea how to play the game or what they are watching. People who say "it's mahvel baybee" just use it as a way to get hype without actually knowing wtf is going on the screen. Not everything that happens on the screen is crazy.

    "blown up"
    "chucking plasma" AKA we from norcal.

    "New technology" to refer to new combos or properties for moves or simply new tactics? That's stupid. If anything it should reference a glitch or exploit in the system like DHC glitch, CvS2 roll canceling, Sentinel's unfly mode, something that was not necessarily intended.

    I don't know how regular SF tournament attendees can go around saying it with a straight face.

    'Footsies' is actually a martial arts term describing fighters vying for position using legs and feet contact, usually in judo, BJJ and aikido. I'm not sure how the term came about in U.S. fighting game scene, and the way it's used in describing fighting games is rather incorrect, but I won't be surprised if it came directly from the martial arts tie.
