A Gaming Glossary: J
|from (fighting game event organizer) Alex Jebailey + “bait”|
To bait an opponent; to lure or trick someone into a disadvantageous spot. A player can be jebaited by the game itself, and the term is used as an interjection to imply either “I tricked them!” or “I got tricked!”
Let’s see if I can lure them off the point. [enemy follows player off point and is killed] Haha, jebaited!
I wonder what’s in this treasure chest. [chest turns out to be a mimic] Oof, jebaited!
The past participle jebaited is much more common; jebait appears to be a back-formation.
|Jet seed||In randomizer speedrunning, a seed that can be completed rapidly due to favorable starting conditions. A jet seed in an RPG rando, for instance, might allow access to powerful spells or equipment much earlier in the game than the vanilla version.|
The stat gains these first few levels have been great. This is shaping up to be a jet seed!
