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 disagree all you want, but you're wrong if you do. English is not a normal language (i.e. English is the hardest to learn common language [I use common because there are some very obscure and rarely used languages that are almost impossible to learn]). If a word is used to mean something it didn't used to for long enough, it gains the new meaning. (for example--as previously stated, the word gay didn't used to have anything at all to do with your sexual preference until it was [incorrectly] used to mean that for long enough that the meaning stuck)
Fact: Noob = bad player.
Fact: Newb = new player.

P.S. Does this mean these 2 terms will always mean these 2 different things forever? Not necessarily.

I always thought the word "noob" was actually a cleaver acronym for "not out of bread".

Huh.


LOL

Yes people often tell me i am 'not out of bread' when I am playing games....

How do they know? Can they see my kitchen? Do they know my baker?

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.


See this is why the term "scrub" came into existence.

Noob = bad new player
Scrub = bad old player

YOU can disagree all you want but YOU ARE WRONG!

I have been playing games a looooong time, and I supsect longer than you.

I have SEEN the word change, I KNOW where the words came from.

Look it up online if you don't believe me, then get back to me and apologise.

I'm not saying things haven't changed, they HAVE, but originally noob=newb=newbie, I bet you werent even born when the word 'newbie' started to be used.

Get your FACTS right!

Then why is everyone else in this thread saying your wrong? You've been caught saying something wrong and can't admit it because of how foolish you'd look, so instead you attempt to declare the truth is a lie. I can sympathize with your unwillingness to admit a mistake--everyone goes through that every now and then, but trying to pass off false information as fact is just pathetic. I'd love to stay around and laugh at your further attempts to continue this farce, but at the same time I don't much enjoy talking to a brick wall. Hopefully you'll see the light soon though, but I'm not holding my breath...

And I've been gaming for 19 years. I can tell you that newb has always had a much different meaning than noob. Players would admit to being a newb; it has always been an insult to call someone a noob.

Ignore him, it's just some sophomoric rant.

I totally agree, they are the same thing. I always laugh a little when people say I'm a noob even though I started play straight out of beta, it's been a while, definately not new to the game anymore.
