What does NvN mean in Diablo?

Necro vs Necro

Diablo players use NvN as shorthand for Necro versus Necro. This acronym refers to a player versus player (PvP) match in which both players are playing as Necromancers.

Necromancers, as you're likely already aware, are sorcerers who can summon skeletons, zombies, and other undead minions. In Diablo, the Necromancer class has been available since Diablo II, and is one of the game's primary summoning classes (alongside Druids).
