What is OP ?

Posted by GilaChess
The definition of OP is 

Overpowered (usually in a video game, in which a person or group becomes or is too powerful; has become very popular in the mmorpg crowd).

I use this often in the game of Starcraft when new changes suddenly makes a unit seem too strong i.e OP.

Recently too, I think it's Evan Capel who coined the term "too strong" in Facebook when complimenting some chess player's achievement. So to me OP or "too strong" is the same thing :)

Here's to using the term (hopefully) more in describing (seriously or jokingly) various aspects of Malaysian chess in future :)
