Y U NO – Meme History

No comments

Y U NOAn abbreviation of the phrase “why you no,” Y U NO is an image of a stick-figure wearing a distinct facial expression of irritation and anger. It is superimposed with text to form an image macro series that uses a shorthand style commonly used in text messaging as well as erroneous grammar in order to address/question a certain topic. The meme is also sometimes known as TXT BAK or Y U NO guy on the Internet. 

Origin

The clearly disturbed face of the guy is considered to be based from a character from Gantz, a Japanese sci-fi manga / anime series in which two friends died and somehow transported themselves to an unreal world full of violence. The expression is particularly found in Chapter 55: Naked King, which was first published in February 2002 and then translated into English in June 2009.

Origin of the Y U NO Facial Expression

Before it was exploited as the Y U NO image macro, the image has spread around 4chan imageboards.

The first appearance that came with the Y U NO text was seen in a LOLTumblrWallpapers post that garnered a combination of more than 10,000 reblogs & likes on the social blog Tumblr. It said, “I TXT U, Y U NO TXT BAK!?”

First Y U NO TXT BAK

As it started to become popular, several websites that allow users to generate their own meme uploaded the image as an exploitable or a blank template. The common pattern in the text would be “[subject], Y U NO [verb]?”.

Goredom – Brawler’s Guild (Rank 1)

No comments

GoredomeGoredom is the third opponent in Rank 1 and the third overall opponent in the Brawler’s Guild. A level 92 shoveltusk with 1.6M health, his fight is fairly easy with only skill to watch out for.

Announcer’s Introduction

Also entering the arena: Goredome! He WILL attempt to gore you. With his dome.

Skills / Abilities / Spells

Lumbering Charge

Goredome readies from a distance and, after a second, charges forward. 

Tactics / Strategy / How to Defeat

Goredom - Rank 1 Brawler's GuildThe fight is quite similar to the first brawl with Bruce, although this time the opponent uses a long-range skill to one shot the player. Every time Goredom uses Lumbering Charge, a red indicator appears on the ground to mark where it will end up killing the player in an instant. Hence, the player need only to move away from the marker before Goredome arrives.

Anyone who suffers from lag, with game latencies going beyond 200ms, may want to move away faster than they should. Actually, it is best stop any actions being done, be it channeling spells or healing with First Aid, and maneuver from the red circle of death the moment it appears since only a second of grace time is given.

The lumbering charge can be interrupted by any rooting spells (such as Frost Nova), stuns, and other skills that cause Goredom loss of control.

Goredome occasionally inflicts the player with normal melee attacks. Fortunately, the damage is weak enough that even Cloth-wearing classes equipped with rare quality gear can withstand the blows.

To summarize, just keep on damaging Goredom unless you need to evade the red circle.

Mage Tips

Avoiding the red marker with a simple Blink should do the trick, so will the aforementioned Frost Nova and spells that cause loss of control.
