/og/ (CMU) 1. In the multi-player space combat game Netrek, to execute kamikaze attacks against enemy ships which are carrying armies or occupying strategic positions. Named during a game in which one of the players repeatedly used the tactic while playing Orion ship G, showing up in the player list as “Og”. This trick has been roundly denounced by those who would return to the good old days when the tactic of dogfighting was dominant, but as Sun Tzu wrote, “What is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy’s strategy.” However, the traditional answer to the newbie question “What does ogg mean?” is just “Pick up some armies and I’ll show you.”
2. In other games, to forcefully attack an opponent with the expectation that the resources expended will be renewed faster than the opponent will be able to regain his previous advantage. Taken more seriously as a tactic since it has gained a simple name.
3. To do anything forcefully, possibly without consideration of the drain on future resources. “I guess I’d better go ogg the problem set that’s due tomorrow.” “Whoops! I looked down at the map for a sec and almost ogged that oncoming car.”
