There are several cheeky references to "GG" in the Mission guides when discussing the GG-101 Doom Cannon. What exactly does "GG" mean in this context?

GG means "Good game".

At the end of just about every game of League of Legends, players will all say "gg" to each other. Kind of like an over-the-internet way of shaking hands.

People say it in most PC games. You might even see it outside of games. Often when people are being sarcastic about someone failing an attempt at something.

Thanks for the replies. So "GG" in the cannon name means that you are about to get hit with a cannon so destructive it will definitely end your game, and therefore, "Good Game!"

Have I got that right?

Yeah that's about right. Often when playing I might say to my friends "well that's gg" to mean that's the game over.

It's even a step more. Much like Mike hints at, the cannon's name is Good Game - Laugh out Loud.

The boss is actually mocking you. And seeing that the bosses name is Kades...

Chris Cantrell, one of the popular guys in LoL community, now Producer (I think? something like that) at Rito. He did a lot of work on MvsM. Kades is his nickname, even presented here on his BGG profile.

Fun piece of trivia, I also did the voice for the boss minion in the English version of the radio play.

Wow a dev, just ordered, will be here Friday, really quick shipping, and I am excited to say the least! Mostly a solo player, but this will be a hit with my group.

Right.
I knew about Chris his nickname but had figured it be the other way around. That Chris had added "Kades" after MvM got published.
Thanks for clearing that up. It's fun to know you "got beaten by the designer".

You made it personal. All it did was buy you a little more pain than most.

Also in the modern lexicon it can be interpreted in certain instances as "Git Gud".

Heh. Kinda like in FPS, where NS could mean either "Nice Shot" or "Noob Sprayer".

Although I don't know if this is still a thing. When GUNZ went offline, I stopped playing shooters.
