  3. "Real" - what does it mean -.-?
4 years ago#1
Was in a game yesterday and players kept saying "Real (charactername)"

or "You so real"

I've kind of figured out its supposed to be insulting, but what is the actual meaning/reasoning behind it -.-?

It replaces the obvious.

Just real is like "damnit blag blag blag happened"

real (charactername) means they're doing something wrong

some high elo players started saying it a lot on streams and now everyone that plays LoL says it


next season I'm going to force myself to 3k elo and get a stream and start calling **** "pringles" with my friends, and then everyone in the league of legends will be promoting the use of "pringles" as an adjective.

Real is a joke on the word viable.

People used to say, is x viable?

Then people started to use the word legit, as in. That's a legit build. (Legit was short lived on LoL)

Which turned into real. People typically say it sarcastically. As in "You so real"

It's basically people trying to be anti-meta. It's the same people who think tires don exits (urban dictionary if you don't get that).

I've never heard anyone say that, but it sounds like one of the fad words people use. I wouldn't pay to much attention to it, it will fade away quickly.

Read the topic title and first thing that popped into my head was "****in magnets how do they work."

The word pringles is already used by the fighting game community.
