    Thanks dude. Many newbies ask this. Now we can refer this link to them.

    By the way, can u please clean it by removing the excessive symbols? I think due to difference in fonts, the copy/paste has messed up a bit. (some excessive ? are in there.)

    Yea, Evony likes to change quote marks into question marks. Refresh it, I've since fixed it. I've quit the game, and I STILL get asked about lingo more than anything else. I think it's one area where newer players struggle the most.
