I have noticed that NOOB is so freequently used word in this game.

Tbh i don't think the majority even knows the meaning of the word. It is used as a smear word and in wrong pretexts all the time.

- Noob or Newbie: is a slang term for a novice or newcomer, or somebody inexperienced in any profession or activity. Contemporary use can particularly refer to a beginner or new user of computers, often concerning Internet activity, such as online gaming. It can have derogatory connotations, but is also often used for descriptive purposes only, without a value judgment.

So it's not a bad word you call ppl you rage at, on the contrary you are accualy giving them a whitewash for their stupidity. This makes me laught all the time.

I play with ppl around lvl30 and i still hear ppl say the word. You can't be a novice or newcomer at that lvl only plain bad at the game!

Just a litle FYI. GLHF in future games.

FYI noob means a person who has played for a long time and still sucks.
Newbie means they are new to the game and suck.

Does he truly take what he thinks as fact?


Or is this all merely a clever ruse...?

I still think it's hilarious that people call each other "noob, newb, nub" and expect the other person to be offended. :/

It just seems like such a childish thing to do. I'm a grown man, I don't need to be talking **** to pre-teens on the internet all day. And if someone sucks at the game, who am i to cast judgement. I'll gladly just beat them, grab my IP, and move on.

Noob is kinda starting to lose its insult value. People have become so accustomed to using it/seeing it it doesn't really mean much anymore.


Click on them. You know you want to. Except Jax. He's just there for color.

I believe "Anon is Legion" is meant as a joke-threat. If you've seen Ghost Rider you know what I am talking about, as this seems like a movie quote.
"I am Legion, cause we are many".

Noob is slang for Newbie therefor the same meaning. God, kids today think they know stuff old gamers invented ages ago. This game is full of them tbh. Think the average age in this game is around 15. Even 18 is a kid in my eyes but atleast they behave a litle better...
