  • Definitions:OWNZ,PWNZ,w00t,sUx0rs,Your Base are belong to us

    I don't play many online games... this is my second.. (first was midtown madness.. that game rocks)

    So i see a lot of sayings in the online community that I dont speak.

    I figured out what OWNZ means... basically the same as I RULE

    but what about PWNZ? I assume someone meant to put OWNZ, but hit the 'P' so many times that it just became funny.

    And what the hell is w00t? I take is as some cry of jubilation.. but Im not positive... people seem to use it when they are confused, happy, excited, baffled.

    Suxors = sucks.. i get that.. but where did saying it like that come from?

    and "All your Base are belong to us" What the hell does that mean?!!!! It is not gramatically correct sense in the English language and it drives me maaaaad.

    "All your base..." comes from a mistranslation in a video game. You can read about it here:
    http://www.wired.com/news/culture/0,1284,42009,00.html

    ownz, pnz, pwnz, etc. all just mean "owns" as in "I'm so good I own this!" or whatever.

    w00t: We Own the Other Team. (Or as the RLF say, Wining by Outsmarting and Outmanuvering Thieves.)

    SuXors: "Sucks" + "XOR." XOR means "exclusive or" (it's an assembly language construct that means OR but not AND.)

      I am not that jiggy wit it when it comes to all these sayings, but:

      I thought 'Suxors' meant suckers, as in, "you fool"

      And the 'All your Base belong to us" is a bad translation from some old Japaneese game. But enough people thought it was funny to use it a lot.

              That "Yatta" song is hilarious. The video is even better.

                  I thought that "pwnz", "pwned", "ownz", "j00 suxors" all meant "I am an idiot". well, that's what I always take them to mean :lol:

                  w00t doesn't really carry this meaning but. :grin:

                      What he said. I look back shame-facedly on the couple of times I have ever said "w00t" in a moment of weakness.

                      "1337" means "leet", and it came from "31337". That came from hackers.. but progressed onto coming from 12 year old boys who think using netbus and back orifice makes them the dogs bollocks. I'm not sure if the meme then passed from there to gamers, or whether H4X0R-wannabes and gamers are two parallel branches from hacker-speak.
