After a round of Heroes of the Storm, two players typed "rp" in chat instead of the customary "gg". One player was speaking in Spanish at the start of the round, so I assume it's just the local version of "gg" - but what does it stand for?

A Google search in both English and Spanish turned up nothing useful because of the much more common meanings of "rp" in gaming.

    Usually it means "Role Play", and in this game, it might be applicable, but I think we'd need the appropriate context for that. Eg, did the heroes win in this particular game? I.e. Diablo, Kerrigan lost in the fight? – Ben Jul 23 '18 at 0:36
  • Context: the five of us won the game (Heroes only allows team chat, not all-chat), and it was generally a friendly game (e.g. nobody was flaming in chat or misbehaving). – nneonneo Jul 23 '18 at 0:40

    We won by a fairly sizable margin, though, so it's possible it's a variant on "RIP", although it struck me as odd that two players would use the exact same spelling. – nneonneo Jul 23 '18 at 0:41

    were they in a party? maybe it's simply their "thing" – gl_prout Jul 24 '18 at 11:18

    My first thoughts were "RIP" and "reported" – snetch Oct 9 '18 at 14:10

It means "Ranked Points"

"I carried you" or "Here are your free ranked points" if you're feeling snarky

"Yay we're about to get a ton of ranked points" if you're feeling cocky

It's not a very good or well thought out replacement for "GG", but hey what can you do
