I've been playing some online games and reading "Overlord" (manga about an MMORPG) and slowly learning chatspeak so I'll start making a list of what I figure out here!

おは: おは[ようございます] "good morning!"
ノ: 乗る "riding" as in "i'll ride/hop on the bandwagon" = "i agree", "i'll come join the raid" etc. usually someone will ask something and then a string of people will "raise their hand" like this to agree.
あざーす: あ[りがとう ご]ざ[いま]す "thanks"
イベ: イベント "event", ex. キルイベ "kill event" (event where you're supposed to kill enemy soldiers)
サブ: "sub" as in "sub-account, my non-main account"
アカ: アカウント "account", ex. サブアカ "sub account"
イン(している): ログインしている "is logged in" (インする to become logged in = to log on). note that instead of saying someone's "offline" they tend to just say "not logged in" (インしていない).
テレポ: テレポート (アイテム) "teleport(ation scroll etc)"
引退: "retirement" = quit the game (or guild)
神: "god" = what you'll be called if you're online constantly, appear whenever someone needs you, or can translate between japanese and another language
kwsk: 詳しく "in detail" = details/source please
w: 笑、笑う "laugh" = lol
g: ゴールド "gold" (in-game money)
(お)ひさ:久しぶり "long time (no see)"
萌え: 萌える "buds, becomes sprouting" but actually this is the kanji for "moe". Ex. ギャップ萌え "gap moe", the moe of a gap in looks vs personality.
ノンケ : ノンゲイ "non-gay", straight.
i am japanese! : this actually means "i only speak japanese, i don't understand a single word of what you're saying, slow down and be nice" etc.
native : too foreign/not japanese (as in "i only understand broken english, not authentic english!" = "too native lol i'm japanese lol").
モン: モンスター monster
ハン: ハント、ハンチング hunt(ing), ex. モンハン monster-hunting

General useful vocabulary:

同盟 "alliance" = guild (in certain games)
合併 "merge" = merging 2 guilds into one etc
兵士 = soldiers
切れ(た) = ran out of something, ex. スタミナ 切れ "out of stamina"
敵 = enemy
襲う = attacks, robs
敵襲 (=敵 襲う) = raid (enemy attacking you)
攻撃(される) = (become) attacked
