Sewer terminology

Posted on: February 6th, 2009 by Scott Eats Bullets

Hi everybody,

I’m trying to determine something. Something that’s bugged me for a while.

This relates to 2fort, as many things in our community do, and has to do with what we call things. No, this isn’t the next installment of “How to talk like a Newb” (though that is coming). I just want to collect some thoughts.

What do you guys call the different parts of the sewer?

I tend to refer to the “pipe” or the the “tunnel” for the long straight section, the “platform” for the area with the health and ammo (where the engies always build), and the “elbow” for the curvy part that leads out to the water.

However, I’ve found that these terms aren’t always understood clearly, so I’m curious if I’m using the wrong terminology or if I’m just crazy.

We’ve established clear definitions of every other part of the map, so the sewers should be as well.

Feel free to dicsuss it on the forum in this thread, or in the comments here.

    I’ve never really thought what to call each part. I guess now I’ll have to come up with some ideas as to what I should call them.

    i just call it our sewers or there sewers as a general, or if there in the area with the health/ammo ill call it our/their sewer elbow

    I’ve never seen a reason to differentiate beyond “their sewers” “our sewers” “the water” and their/our “sewer stairs” simply because the sewers is just a tube. There’s one way in, one way out, and people pretty much always stand in one of two spots, the health and ammo spawn, or the stairs.

    also, I pwn for getting two typos in a 5 letter name.

  5. Zhukov Says:

    I always just call it the sewers – I see no point in complicating that area since it isn’t very detailed/advanced. If you say sewers, it’s one pathway and that is easily clear, unlike the base itself which has many entry points and pathways.
