What Does FEEDER Mean in a Text?

FEEDER means Player Who Dies Easily in a Game in an online gaming context.

A FEEDER is a player who repeatedly "Dies Easily in a Game" and thereby feeds the opposition with skills, experience money or other items.

Most FEEDERs are inexperienced players who die because they are unable to work out how to defeat an enemy. However, sometimes feeding is done deliberately (e.g., when a player wants to speed up the game if they do not see any chance of winning, or simply to ruin other players' games. (See GRIEFER (Player Who Provokes Other Players).)

A player who benefits from a FEEDER is referred to as FED.
