What Does OOR Mean?

OOR means Out of Resource in an online gaming context.

Similar to OOM (Out of MANA or Out of Magic Points), OOR tells your team mates that your energy levels (e.g., life, weapon power, magic levels) have been depleted.

Typing OOM (which is far quicker than typing "My energy has all gone") typically happens during a large-scale team battle (e.g., a culminating fight against a boss monster) when the pressure is on.
