Yup, its a salute. Lots of clan members do this is they see each other in game or something like that. Or someone sees a clan they respect.

It's a quick way to say, "Good luck and have fun," or a way to honor fellow clan mates that happen to be in the same random pub match. There's a lot hidden in that little salute guy :honoring:

I'm assuming that it's a left handed salute?
EDIT: Why the -1? This o7 looks to me like someone facing me and saluting me with their left hand. Although I guess they could be facing the other direction. But that would be just rude.

For a right hand salute you would need a backwards 7.

7o -> see? doesn't work.

The appearance of the o7 resembles you saluting someone else, looking from the rear, not the front.  In my opinion, since you o are the one rendering the honor, then it is you facing front (your behind your o)with the 7 being your right arm up and saluting.
