WL

What does WL stand for?

Whatta loser

If a gamer does something dumb or annoying, other players can hit back with the acronym WL, short for “whatta loser.” This is a way for players to let another player know they messed up or are not acting appropriately.

Outside of gaming, you might see WL pop up in text messages or internet chats. Here, it’s typically used to describe how a third party is acting. For instance, if a friend is acting silly or making poor choices, a person might text WL to another friend to comment on the situation without directly confronting the person in question.
