Your assumption is correct. Any city which can be reached by land is considered "on the same continent". If you built Bach's Cathedral in Paris, it would affect cities in Asia but would not affect London.
I think they are telling you to deploy as far you can, so you have to deploy at 40m of distance from the portal. The resos will be at max distance positioned, so will be more "difficult" to destroy. But as is said, "A picture is worth a thousand words:"
I don't think it's ingress specific. I think "spot on" here means correctly, that is with resonators nicely spread out as it's recommended. The local guy is concerned that someone in the rush of destroying and capturing may deploy without care.
Wikipedia calls this a programming game.
Like 5pike said it's random number generator For Example in Hearthstone-Casts (Blizzards Card Game) it is even used as a word: "Player 2 got 'out-rng-ed'" Meaning Player 2 got the bad end of a dice roll. Equals bad luck.
RNG stands for random number generator. It is often used in speedruns, to say that you had luck (like "I got lucky with the RNG") or that a section can be quite random ("The RNG in this section can be a pain"). You might also hear rngesus ("pray to rngesus that it works") - basically praying for good luck.
Especially in competitive games, balance is very important. If something in a game (in this case a card) is too strong, it is often considered "OP" which is short for overpowered. No one likes overpowered items in games, because it gives the player who uses it an advantage. In order to make the game balanced again, the "OP" item (card) gets nerfed. This ...
From wikipedia: In video gaming, a nerf is a change to a game that makes something less effective or desirable.
A nerf is the opposite of a buff. In this context, it means weakening the card, for example by increasing its mana cost or reducing its stats, sometimes also changing how its effect works so it's less strong. Nerfs are often called for by communities, but especially in growing card games, they are rarely implemented in favor of new releases, which can ...
Nerf pretty much means to make something weaker. This term is not unique to Hearthstone. The wikipedia article has some more information. The opposite of a nerf is a buff (make something stronger).
A link is a sequence of moves that do not overlap each other's frames, so it looks like this, -move1- -move2- -move3-, where - represent starting and finishing frames. A chain is when a of normal move(not special, normal or ultra) neglects some or all recovery frames of the preceding move. so it looks like -move1-move2-move3- Another word is cancel, which ...
I've never heard of "killfeed", but then I haven't been into games in a while. In Quake (the first one) they were called obituaries. See here for the list of Quake's obituary messages, including such classics as "X rides Y's rocket", "X accepts Y's shaft", and "X chewed on Y's boomstick".
Killfeed is the correct answer however it is a term much that is much older than Cod and probably dates back to quake, I know I knew of it long before COD exsisted. The results you are seeing are biased due to popularity of search terms and lack of inter-generational gaming history. The first COD game was in 2006 and the term kill feed was widely used before ...
In some games, these messages are known as "Obituaries".
This is known as the killfeed. This term has been widely used throughout many different multiplayer games, including old ones such as Quake, Counter-Strike, Starsiege's Tribes, etc. For the etymology of the word the origin is unknown but it has likely started off with Quake/Quake II. Some examples of killfeed from the games you have mentioned: From ...
