"Endgame" is the gameplay available when the player has reached the end of any existing levelling structure, at which point play for character advancement is irrelevant but prestige amongst peers, pursuit of rare items, participation in group activities, and conquering goals unattainable except by large numbers of highest-level players are the lure to continue playing.
    Added a few based on this, thanks!

    Just find out all of this posts cause I just entered the MMO Class.

    A glossary is perfect for me. Necessary and great thing.

    As a French guy, I follow tutorials and work my english at the same time :P

    Added:

    Power creep: The gradual unbalancing of a game due to successive releases of new content. The phenomenon may be caused by a number of different factors and, in extreme cases, can be damaging to the longevity of the game in which it takes place.

    As new expansions or updates are released, new game mechanics or effects are introduced, making it increasingly difficult for older content to remain in balance without changes. Usually, this means new content releases grow successively more powerful while older content becomes relatively underpowered.
