    Regen is a ficticious player i think, someone who is introduced to the game when the 'real' players start to retire etc.

    AI = Computer.

    Maybe wrong, but thats just a guess.

    regen = player generated by the game to replace someone who's retired.

    ai = artificial intelligence. in this case, refers to computer controlled clubs and managers

    Regens are also often called newgens these days, to reflect the fact that the system for production of new players for the database changed some time back.

    They used to just regenerate the old players, so there'd be a new Michael Laudrup born with a different name etc. Now the newgens are created from scratch.

    Actually they should now be Fred's, as their generation is no longer tied to retirements.

    Challenges forum has a lot of "KUTGW's" floating about. FWIW is regularly used in OTF (Off Topic Forum) - and GOAT gets used rarely, but I like it.

    ROFLMMFOA - Rolling on floor laughing my mother f'ing ass off.
    LMAO - laughing my ass off
    GTFOH - Get the f' outta here.

    Yea, people 'round here are getting soft

    On a level though, there's so much bad grammar nowadays, its hard to know what's actually the right way of spelling something
