In gaming terms it is an acronym for Real Time Strategy, as opposed to Turn Based Strategy. RTS is the "request to send" signal to the modem from a computer, which would normally be answered with CTS, or "clear to send." Each of them have standard pin selection and voltage levels under RS232 and related standards. Many implementations simply ignore these or tie them to DSR (dataset ready) or DTR (terminal ready) or similar.
