    This is inspired by the "Rude People" thread, as it briefly touched upon 'Noobs' and 'Newbs'. What are your definitions for these two terms?

    As far as I knew 'Newbs' were people who were new to the forum/gaming arena and still had alot to learn/understand, while noobs were people who were deliberate jerks (notably in the gaming arena, as in the infamous Counter-Strike campers with the AWP, players in Metroid Prime Hunters who only use Trace for his Imperialist/Invisibility, or Weavel for his Half-Turret).

    What are your thoughts on this one guys?

    I never knew there was a difference but I guess those definations sound reasonable enough

    n00b = tries and still sucks
    newb = new player that may have potential, but may just become a n00b.
    n00bs generally are rude to people trying to teach them while newbs try to learn.

    As far as I'm aware, Newb is short for Newbie. Noob is an internet slang version of that, and n00b is a "1337 speak" version of it. To me, none of them have different meanings at all, other than how people interpret them. Usually just mix it up. Sometimes newb, sometimes noob. Usually it's just as a joke between the two of us.

    One thing though, I don't quite get the whole "flaming of newbs" in the gaming arena thing, and why are they always the first targeted? If people target the newbs first just for the sake of easy kills or points, maybe they are the real noobs of the arena (because that is like, so dishonourable!).

    LoL, sparked by, yours truly. It is true though, what I said in my post there, about Newb=Suck cause they are new Noob=Suck in general. But of course your "jerks" definition would be correct. Damn AWP campers, just as less-skill-requiring as Snipers in CoD2, and Marth abusers, by the way, if Marth is your main in SSBM or your mainly a sniper in CoD2 and acutaly think your good, you suck! =] Yes, yes, Marth and Sniper would apply to your: players in ....... use ....... becuase ...........

    Oh and, Ezickel, thats totaly true. They are noobs if they constantly hunt the newbs.

    Sovieto, your a total n00b so stfu. If your a good player it doesn't matter what your opponent is doing, you should know how to counter them. Please stop complaining about Marth and other things, its pathetic.
