Yes, there are plenty of naming conventions used by the community to identify different groups of different units. I'll list some of them: Protoss: Death Ball: Main Protoss army formed mainly by Zealots, Stalkers, Sentries, Immortals and Colossi. This term was hugely used in both WOL and HOTS since Colossi were the real backbone of Protoss Army. In LOTV, ...
SS = Missing or switching sides. It is not used with any other meaning (at least in EUW servers), though I have heard of some Americans using it for summoner spells. I wouldn't recommend that usage; for summoner spells it is more usefull to call the spell they burned, since ignite and flash are way diffrent things. "Mid no flash" "Galio burned r" "ss Mid" ...
I believe you are referring to the Parallax Scrolling technique. Parallax scrolling is a technique in computer graphics and web design, where background images move by the camera slower than foreground images, creating an illusion of depth in a 2D scene and adding to the immersion. Referring back to the screenshots in OP, this appears to be the ...
I have seen this term used in a completely different context, specifically with console games and "boosting". People may use a rubber band on their controller to force analog sticks and/or other buttons (such as a trigger) to function. I believe it is mostly done by people who want to appear active in an online game mode that kicks players for being idle. ...
Final Offensive Weapon-perhaps because it's the last weapon before you can get into the centcom!as well as the last best chance to take out the toughest places or opponents after trying everything else?

Actually, I used to use it in a game called EverQuest back in 1999. Before that, I used it on a BBS called "HOT BBS" as far back as 1982. I used to have a submenu on my BBS where I listed features that were coming. It was called "Coming Soon" for a while, but the jokes started that I never finished things on my Coming Soon list (I was a teen, and girls ...
First seen use dates back to playing Counter-Strike 1.1 circa 2001. Definitely meaning Newbie shortened to Newb and Translated into l33t sp34k. N00b.
The wall texture on the original Inferno (1.1/1.3) was yellow and the shape of the path was a banana.
Because it's curved like a banana. (Some people online say it's because there's a yellow car, but this is incorrect - the same stretch was called 'banana' in CS 1.6, and there was no car on the map back then)
I'm assuming it means Forward Operating Weapon, as FOB means, in real military lingo, Forward Operating Base.
Family of Weapon, I believe. Could be wrong but seems to match
The term that comes to mind, as @djsmiley2k mentions in the comments, is casual. While not a perfect source, Wikipedia describes a casual video game as (emphasis mine): Extremely simple gameplay, like a puzzle game that can be played entirely using a one-button mouse or cellphone keypad Familiar genre, like a card game or board game Allowing ...
