To facilitate improving communication between FA's long-time WvW regulars and the new Chinese guilds, let's put together some translation guide of basic WvW jargon.  We have some FA players who can provide the Mandarin translations.

 

For example:

Names of objectives:

nc (north camp) -

nwc (northwest camp) -

nwt (northwest tower) -

 

etc...

 

Please post here translations and I will update the original post.

Camp:

North - 北

NE - 东北

NW - 西北

 

South - 南

SE - 东南

SW - 西南

 

 

Tower:

NE - 东北

NW - 西北

 

SE - 东南

SW - 西南

 

Do you want me to type out how to pronounce them? Cause from experience, a lot of people get stumped if they see "xi" which is the way to say west. 

 

 

Also, if CN server has specific Chinese names on their maps, I'm willing to type out what Bay/Hills/Garrison is if someone can find it.

We'll need to figure out what bay/hills/garri and the tower/keep/camp names in EB are, probably by asking them what they call those objectives.

 

How about gate names for keeps too?

Gate:

North - 北门

South - 南门

East - 东

West - 西

NE - 东北门

NW - 西北

SE - 东南

SW - 西南

Watergate - 水门 (literal translation, I have no idea if they actually have a specific way to call this)

 

I also have no idea how they would say "spawn side gate" cause in Chinese there really isn't one word for respawn/beginning :x

Cata wall and suicide gate might be used differently too.

 

Wall:

North - 北墙(壁)

South - 南墙(壁)

East - 东墙(壁)

West - 西墙(壁)

NE - 东北墙(壁)

NW - 西北墙(壁)

SE - 东南墙(壁)

SW - 西南墙(壁)

** I put a bracket for the second character cause "wall" in full is 墙壁 but just 墙 means the same thing.

 

 

I assume the easier call out for SMC would be: 城堡 but I could be wrong. It can also be misleading since "Keeps" (the ones on the borderlands) in English is more or less the same thing in Chinese to mean a castle.

 

And also:

EBG: 永恒战场

EoTM: 迷雾边界

(Got these from some random image on Google; though I'm doubtful they would actually say the full name like that o.o)

Just cause,

 

Assjam = 屁股插入

Push = 冲进 // 推进

Dibs = 优先 // 我们要先

NNK nuthugging TFV = NNK TFV 睡在一起 // NNK TFV 牵手 (sadly, I don't know the slang for balls, so all I got is the two are in a bed together or holding hands :c)

 

Scrim = 争 //

Official = 正式

As Intended = 如你所说的

Salty =

PvDoor = 撞门

Pirate Ship = 海盗船

Respect Fights = 尊敬战斗 // 不要叉进来

 

Some of these might not be aren't accurate at all, cause I don't know the slang for it and some things just sound cooler in English. 

Anyone has a link to a Chinese Guild gvg'ing with comms? Might improve accuracy if that's what you really want :P

Also @mio or anyone watching the vid - the guild in that video, [Ge], has been in NA gw2 t1 server before, and because of that you'll hear english shouts and things from prominent gvg guilds. their style/comms are influenced by the na gvg guilds that were in t1 before they all migrated to t2

肏你妈 (pronounced "cào nǐ mā") is a common curse meaning "f**k your mother." The first character is a more vulgar derivative of 入肉 (pronounced "rù ròu", literally "enter meat").

Not sure how to extract commands from that video cause it's pretty intense with a lot of their calls being overlapped. 

What I can make out is that when they call downs, engage, regroups and bombs, they just use normal terms, so don't know if typing them out would help much ):

 

 

And great link, Anvil, I should remember how to type that out cause it's one of the popular swears.
