Default first floor - bottom floor?

Just a little argument I've had too many times in a lot of games with my friends. In my own language we also have a word for bottom floor. The floor above that is the 1st floor.

But some of my friends argue that another term for bottom floor is 1st floor. So when I say 1st floor it's not the floor that they'll be looking at for the contact seen.

SO, what is other people's idea on this? Or are my friends just a bit stupid? (my guess tbh)

in Brazil:

ground
1st floor
2nd floor
3rd floor
4th floor

just like in the elevators...

and bottom floor is not the 1st floor, your friends are wrong and you are right

Youre friends are stupid - i have very good sources on that.
Also 1st floor is the floor above the bottom floor in german aswell, so for me it is the same as for you.

Yeah, its the same in Danish so i'we had this problem loads of times too.
Bottom floor = Ground floor, then comes 1, 2, 3 etc

Fisen is Estonian if i'm correct, so atleast in Baltics we say 1st floor for the ground floor. And that floor above ground floor is 2nd floor. Not like in elavetors

It depends where you come from: Storey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

British etc call the "bottom floor", the "ground floor" or Floor 0 or G0 etc then the floor above it the first floor etc.

Americans call the "Bottom floor" the 1st floor, the floor above it the 2nd floor etc.

There is no real right or wrong way but ye, can get pretty confusing

to get around this i've learned to use
ground, or ground plus one...
or top, top minus two...

enemy is top minus 2, second window from left. 2 second call out and it's international

easy directions to count 2 down from top floor and get guns on the window.

take no possessions
