The meaning of the OP acronym may vary slightly, depending on the context. In online video games, the term OP is used to describe a character or some object that isn’t balanced. That is, it’s overpowered. Such things happen often because online games are often updated, there is added various new content almost every week, not to mention the technical patches, etc.
What OP means in gaming
In general, when you see the term overpowered or OP in video games, it means that a character, weapon, or some other feature gives players an advantage over others in the game. This is because overpowered is a description of the object as the strongest and the best in the game. There is also a synonym for it – broken – which means that the object is so strong that it seems to break the game.
If this happens, the community often asks the developers to nerf an object or character that is overpowered. For example, League of Legends (LoL) often adds new champions that are initially OP, before being nerfed in later patches.
There is the opposite, though. For example, if a character or object is not strong enough or may not be popular with the community, many people ask the developers to buff these characters.
Such buffs and nerfs are used almost constantly because all the games are service games that constantly bring players new content. No wonder the developers have to constantly keep the game balanced by such methods.
