List - This article is considered a List-class article on the wiki quality scale


I think we should sort the slang separately from the acronyms. Makes the list easier to read. ~ Meneth (talk) 19:26, 4 August 2013 (CEST)

Not sure what else could be added.[edit]

Other than a few more abbreviations, acronyms and mnemonics, what else actually needs to be added to this article to make it an 'A'-class?--General Baker Great Britain.png (Talk | Contribs) 15:30, 30 October 2013 (CET)

It should probably just be List class, really. ~ Meneth (talk) 15:37, 30 October 2013 (CET)

To cheese/cheesing[edit]

I've heard it on different livestreams (e.g. by DDRJake) and read it on quite a few forum threads (AAR, guides,..), but what exactly does to cheese/cheesing mean in connection with EU4? Is it just to use exploits? Skylofter (talk) 11:26, 13 August 2014 (CEST)

A rough definition: "'Cheese' is a term used to refer to anything cheap, unfair, or something that is easy to do, does much damage, and requires no skill." So in the context of EU4 essentially abusing the mechanics in ways the devs didn't expect, though not necessarily (but can be) actual exploits. ~ Meneth (talk) 12:06, 13 August 2014 (CEST)
Anything the speaker doesn't like and accuses of being an exploit. 12:16, 13 August 2014 (CEST)


Am I the only one who uses "mingplosion" (ming + implosion, when the whole thing collapses into rebellions)? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (Talk) 08:59, 30 July 2016‎ (CEST)


"Prussian Troops, for their Tendency to get quite good stats through the prussian National Ideas. The Term is taken from the same named Supersoldiers in the Warhammer 40,000 franchise" --Ctanr (talk) 14:06, 28 September 2016 (CEST)


Isn't Kebab the most common slang name for the Ottoman Empire. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:45, 2 October 2016

Due to the negative connotations it has, and the very low number of people actively searching the wiki for it, we don't include it on the list. ~ Meneth (talk) 22:57, 2 October 2016 (CEST)


Suggestion for new jargon term that needs a definition. Can any more experienced players propose a definition? "When a nations borders become highly irregular due to expansion, especially if there disconnected provinces."
