Is it bad if I plug adapter into my Macbook pro when its battery is 50% full?
Cause I plan to play a game and battery will quickly go to 5% otherwise.

Do you mean, is it okay to plug the charger in when the battery is 50%?

I can't see it being a problem. You could wait until it went to 5%, personally I don't think it matters.

So just plug it in, and enjoy your game!

No worries, your English is better than some English people we get on here so I wouldn't worry. I just wanted to clarify what you were asking.

Enjoy.

No, it is the right thing to do. Smaller more frequent charges are the best for your Lithium battery...keep recharging from the red zone and your battery will not last as long.

Also, be sure to read this article about your battery:

Apple - Batteries - Notebooks

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
