An informative thread for people that don't seem to understand what 'noob' means.....

noob = newb = newbie = a new player
(i.e. someone who hasn't played much and generally doen't know wtf they are doing so are pretty bad players)

So.....

If I kill you or win the game, why are you calling me a 'noob' ?

It is basically a self derogatory comment, you are basically saying you have been killed or lost a game to an inferior player.

You are therefore admitting to everyone and yourself that you are an even worse player.

Or, maybe you WIN the game, and you call the other team 'noobs', does that mean you are only capable of beating new players?

Let's stop the childish trolling shall we?

Take your loss like a man, or win with some dignity..!

GROW UP!

Noob =/= newbie

Otherwise I agree completely.

All your logic sounds pretty good except Noob = Newb.
Noob = bad player
Newb= new player

You can be a noob by being a newb but don't have to be a newb to be a noob if you get what I am saying.

Or it means that specific player on the other team got carried. This isn't a 1v1 game.

He's saying noobs are not newbs. Indeed, quite the opposite of what you said.

New player != inferior player.

Just how gay meant happy once, the meaning of noob has also changed.

Noob = bad player.

ggn.

I get what you are saying, but I disagree...

Noob is merely an evolution of the word newbie. Noob has basically evolved into an insult, hence why most youngsters these days don't know the original meaning. They fling it around like someone might say 'idiot'.

I know, I have been playing games for 30 years.

You can be a noob to the level of skill though.

A person can have 4000 games played and still be a noob when they go play ranked, or get in a hard game.

Noob =/= newbie

Noob = someone who refuses to cooperate or get better at the game, consistently playing badly with no regard for others nor understanding their shortcomings. Newbie just means new player.
