For the loss
I'm switching to my handgun and coming after you FTL.
|URAL||You are a loser|
|Ragequit||To angrily quit a game|
|Take the L||Take the loss|
|WEML||Whatever major loser|
|FTEW||For the epic win|
|FTW||For the win|
|BIO||Bring it on|
When a gamer is about to lose a match, they may message "FTL," which stands for "for the loss." People may also use it to comment on a depressing situation, like an embarrassing confession or fail.
FTL is a sarcastic counterstatement to FTW and the preface to the more grandiose FTEL. Typically, people use FTL to be funny, almost like celebrating a soon-to-be-loss.
For example, if a gamer knows this is their last move before being defeated, they might message, "Sending my last squadron FTL!" Or, if a person is using FTL to comment on an embarrassing political gaffe, they might tweet, "POTUS FTL!"
