Good job

Gamers use GJ to compliment other players on a "good job." For example, a teammate might send you GJ after you pull off an epic move or finisher.

While players typically use GJ to congratulate victorious teammates or opponents, they may also send it to an oppo who played well. That's why, even after you lose a hard-fought match, you might receive GJ in chat.
