Whatever happened to using good names for Helpers? Lately, there seems to be a war to see who can come up with the most ridiculous acronym. Let’s take a look at a few of the leaders in this atrocity:

ATTAC – short for Advanced Tradewars Tactical Assault and Conquer. I’m sorry but I never call something “Advanced” if it’s written in Visual Basic.

SWATH – short for Special Weapons and Automagic Tradewars helper. Is it just me or should the phrase “Special Weapons” never be associated with a word that doesn’t exist? These must be some very special weapons indeed! But unlike our next contestant, the SWATH guys have an excuse: they’re Norwegian!

J-Twat I’m not even going to try. But if you look at how the acronym is spelled, there’s a hyphen between J and Twat. This means that these guys actually put some thought into that hyphen placement. I’d hate to break it to the creators, but I don’t think people who are searching for porn through google are going to use your helper.

What ever happened to the TWAssist and TWHelper like names? Both of those tell you exactly what it does in the name! Please, stop the insanity. But more importantly, stop the ridiculous acronymns!
