King Crimson is a phenomenon that sometimes appears in multiplayer games, especially multiplayer shooters like Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, and Call of Duty. A King Crimson event occurs when a player is experiencing such a high volume of lag and packet loss that they appear to teleport between positions rather than actually move to them. King Crimsons are notoriously hard to kill, as one can never truly be sure where their true position is. Combined with the forgiving lag compensation in the Source Engine, a King Crimson is a major threat to all those in opposition when it appears on the battlefield.
King Crimson is named after a character of the same name in the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga. In the series, King Crimson is a ‘stand’ with the ability to erase “frames” of time like how one edits a movie. The result is something which mirrors the way packet loss is handled in some multiplayer games.
As an added bonus, the character is named after an awesome prog band.
The final form (sometimes called fully loaded) is an Imperialish term used in Counter-Strike to refer to an OPERATOR that is fully loaded with their best weapons in every slot. Normally, this includes an OPERATOR‘s best primary weapon, favourite sidearm, a full stack of grenades, full armour, a defuse kit (if available), and sometimes a Zeus x27 for good measure. Predictably, the bill for this loadout tends to run very high; as such, it takes several round wins in a row in order for an OPERATOR to achieve their final form.
An OPERATOR that has achieved their final form is one of the scariest opponents anyone can face. At this point, even flanking the OPERATOR isn’t a reliable option anymore, as they have access to a powerful sidearm. Fully loaded OPERATORS can clear bomb sites effortlessly with pop flashbangs, HE grenades, firebombs, and can deny areas with smoke coverage and powerful rifles. Indeed, there is no better soldier to have handy in a high-pressure clutch situation than a final form OPERATOR.
Though originally a Counter-Strike-exclusive antic, the final form also makes an appearance in several other titles, such as Modern Doomfare 2 and Killing Floor. Its usage in these titles is nearly identical to its usage in Counter-Strike.
The Steyr AUG (Imperialish: AUG HBAR, pronounced “huh-bar”) is an Austrian bullpup assault rifle. It is of much importance to the Empire due to its clutch characteristics. When unleashed in Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Doomfare 2, it showers the target with an unending barrage of bullets and death. Needless to say, many Revenants and Jabronis fell prey to this beast of a machine. The AUG was first discovered in Counter-Strike 1.6, but due to its inherent shittiness of not being an AK-47, AWP, or an M4A1, it was ignored by the Empire. Later, in Counter-Strike: Goyim Offensive, the weapon received significant rebalancing to make it much more OPERATOR.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (Imperialish: Goyim Offensive, sometimes called CS:GO fuck yourself or CS: pls go) is a 2012 game by Valve Software. Global Offensive is a very popular game in the Empire, touted as being the true successor to Counter-Strike 1.6 and reinvigorating the series’ competitive presence without maiming its deep gameplay. The game consists of two teams, OPERATORS and Jabronis, vying for control over a series of different game modes and locales. The game features realistic weaponry and a robust recoil system that rewards skill and experience.
The term “Goyim Offensive” originated from the massive economy that exists revolving around in-game customization items. Much like Hat Fortress 2, the amount of money that flows in the Goyim Offensive economy rivals the output of a small state. The existence of an Israeli faction in the game also contributed to the title, “Goyim Offensive.”
Though Counter-Strike 1.6 was very popular in pre-Empire times, the game’s antiquated mechanics, stagnated metagame, idiotic playerbase, and insulting advertising in later years led to the game being shelved indefinitely as a vague “good ol’ times” memory. With the release of Global Offensive, the game sparked the community back to life and established itself as one of the best realistic shooters on the market.
The FAMAS (Imperialish: FRENCH PIECE OF SHIT) is a French bullpup assault rifle, and is regarded by OPERATORS as one of the most disgusting pieces of trash ever created. This monstrosity is featured in Modern Warfare 2, where it was first determined by OPERATORS to be garbage. The FELIN variant of the FRENCH PIECE OF SHIT, developed in the 2000’s, is featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops, which is set in the 60s. As of 2011, the French Army has realized that OPERATORS know what’s up and that their standard issue service rifle is indeed a piece of shit. The FRENCH PIECE OF SHIT also makes an appearance in Bad Company 2. A less shit version appears in Counter-Strike, where it is a good economy weapon for the CT team.
In Imperialish, the term “FRENCH PIECE OF SHIT” can also refer to anything that is French, and is a common name for Napoleon and his French Empire in games of Civilization.
“Everyone go D!” is a military tactic employed by Good Company which involves the entire OPERATOR team committing every single resource to defence. The tactic has its roots in Quake III: Arena, where OPERATORS would, during CTF matches, capture a flag to score a single point, and then proceed to order “Everyone go D!” and turtle up in the flag room until the match ends.
The tactic can be employed in similar games like Team Fortress 2, provided the gamemode allows the Imperial team to completely devote themselves to defence after gaining a marginal lead. The tactic is an inherent strategy in Counter-Strike, where the Terrorist team will entirely devote themselves to defending a bomb after it has been planted, regardless of whether the resulting explosion will eliminate them. In Advanced Warfare, the Uplink gamemode lends itself very well to this strategy.
“Deag & Kevlar” (also known as On-Site Procurement) refers to an Imperial military tactic developed by Good Company. In Counter-Strike, the tactic involves the OPERATOR purchasing and utilizing only two items: a Desert Eagle pistol and Kevlar armour. Using these tools, the OPERATOR must accomplish their mission without being incapacitated.
The purpose of the Deag & Kevlar tactic is to provide the most economic way in which to murder Jabronis, so that the OPERATOR can procure or purchase more expensive weaponry with which to murder Jabronis in future rounds. The Kevlar (with optional helmet) provides bare-bones protection against enemy attacks while the Desert Eagle administers its dosage to hostiles.
The primary advantage of using the Desert Eagle is that, in all versions of Counter-Strike, it is the cheapest weapon that can kill a Jabroni, fully armored or otherwise, with a single headshot. Goyim Offensive breaks this tradition somewhat by introducing other, cheaper weapon with one-shot capabilities. However, the Desert Eagle remains the best option when you consider the return on investment you get in the consistency of the Desert Eagle’s deadliness with proper practice and drilling.
In situations where the emergency protocols are in effect, Deag & Kevlar tactics are often employed in order to keep costs low and OPERATORS mobile and dangerous.
7DEAG is an Imperialish tactic of firing off the entire magazine of one’s Desert Eagle in hopes of getting a quick kill. Though its tactical reliability may be dubious, the 7DEAG’s unrivaled ability to put out a monsoon of damage has yet to be dethroned as the best way to confirm a kill once your primary weapon runs dry.
The term is derived from the Counter-Strike term, “1DEAG,” which is the act of swiftly killing an opposing player with a single Desert Eagle headshot. The 7 in 7DEAG comes from the fact that a fully loaded Desert Eagle holds 7 rounds. 7DEAG is mainly used in Call of Duty 4, Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Doomfare 2, where the classic 1DEAG is impractical, but in times of panic, the 7DEAG can be successful in Counter-Strike as well. It is customary among OPERATORS to declare “7DEAG!” if you get the kill.
The 7DEAG tactic can also be employed with a revolver, where all 6 shots are emptied in quick succession (while fanning the revolver). This is called a “6COLT”.
7DEAG is one of the two OPERATOR strategies involving the Desert Eagle, the other being the Deag & Kevlar.
