Sam-Spam

noun; compounding (Rhyming Compound)
When a player in Starcraft 2 repeatedly creates a large amount of Crooked Sams to overwhelm the opponent.
 
The term was used to refer to a strategy in Starcraft 2 where a player spams Crooked Sam to overwhelm their opponent. The term clips “Sam” from the unit’s name and combines it with “spam” to create a name for the strategy. I’m not sure if the word is used commonly in the Starcraft 2 community or if it was just a nonce word but the context makes it seem as if the strategy is fairly common even if the name for it may or may not be as common.
Etymology : Clipping of the name “Crooked Sam” plus spam.
