BOT

1. What is bot short for?

Bottom lane

Bot is an abbreviation used in League of Legends (LOL) , Defense of the Ancients (DOTA), and other MOBA games. It refers to the bottom lane, which, along with the top and middle lanes, can be "pushed" against your enemies to gain map control, and ultimately, victory.

The LoL and DotA maps consist of a top, mid, and bottom lane with a jungle area in between the top-mid lanes and mid-bottom lanes. The champions that play in the jungle area are called junglers.

Example

While you hold bot, we're gonna push top really hard to see if we can get the tower down.

2. What does BOT stand for in work and forum discussions?

Back on topic

In workplace and forum discussions, BOT likely stands for "back on topic." Someone who uses this acronym wants to push a discussion back toward its original topic, after a period of derailment.

For example, if your coworker starts a group chat about an important issue facing your company, and everyone else in the chat instead wants to discuss Lisa's new baby, your coworker might respond with "That's great, Lisa had a kid. Can we get BOT, plz?" This likely won't go over well with the rest of the group.

Example

BOT, I think the new release is pretty stable. I think we could push it out next week.

4. What does BOT stand for?

Be on that

On some rare occasions, BOT might be short for "be on that." A gamer might tell you they'll BOT when you ask them to do something, or they might tell you they'll BOT when a new game or service is released.

However, most gamers understand "bot" to mean either automated player characters or the bottom lane in League of Legends (LOL) and other MOBA-style games. Also, most non-gamers use the BOT acronym to mean "back on topic." So, you'll rarely see BOT used to mean "be on that."

Example

I'll BOT new game as soon as it comes out. How 'bout u?
