Noob VS Newb - The Definition

Sunday, March 9, 2008
Well, I often hear people in MMO especially calling each other as noob. (My MMO was Ragnarok Online). At that time, I don't really care because it never appear in the dictionary. But still, the way people are using it to insult are getting weirder and weirder everyday.

Before reading any further, I want to emphasize that, I made this article based on current gaming style at MY/SG.

For example... B call A as noob because A killed(pvp) B using weapon that is very strong that is not common for other player to afford it. For me, it is a misuse of the word 'noob'.

Commonly in MMO games, after a few years, there will be a few groups/guilds/unions that monopoly the game and of course, they are quite popular. But then, other new groups/guilds/unions are called as noob because they consists of weak/new player. Is that alright?

Useable Items/Equipments that gives no or weak ability to the player are called as noob items. Is that alright?

I don't really mind if I were to be called noob in such situation, I know they are misusing it.

Anyway, today, I found this cartoon strip on the internet.

But I think people aren't too soft to say 'newb' in games. Hahah!
