What does "to eighty-six a run" means? I get the gist that it's to ruin the run, but that's an expression I never heard...The only thing that the article fails to mention is that the CtA feature will, at least at first, increase the numbers of "bad" tanks in the queues, therefore increasing the frustration of other players. By bad tanks, I mean those who queue just to get the insta-queue then try to kick someone since they can't really tank (who are really the worst ones), undergeared or unexperienced tanks. There's nothing wrong with being undergeared or unexperienced, everyone has to start somewhere, but when you add it all up, it will create a bad combination: DPS are already cranky due to queue times, the tank is not very good AND he gets more than the DPS out of the run. For these tanks, while the bag will be added incentive, it will also be added pressure.

Yahoo answers tells us:To remove, end usage, or take something out or away. Despite ALL other posts suggestion the origion of this phrase there is only one true answer:Chumley's, a famous and OLD New York speakeasy, is located at 86 Bedford St. During Prohibition, an enterance through an interior adjoing courtyard was used, as it provided privacy and discretion for customers.As was (and is) a New York tradition, the cops were on the payroll of the bar and would give a ring to the bar that they were coming for a raid. The bartender would then give the command "86 everybody!", which meant that everyone should hightail it out the 86 Bedford enterance because the cops were coming in through the courtyard door."86 that light"

86 is a term to mean throw out, unwanted. I used to be a cook and we would 86 the baked potatoes at the end of the night. And if a bouncer didn't like your attitude in the bar, he 86'd you.
