Re: 2012 Newb of the Year Award

Postby DoomYoshi on Wed Dec 12, 2012 10:04 am

Here is the Wikipedia definition:
Newbie, newb, n00b or noob 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[1] or Linux use.[2][3] It can have derogatory connotations, but is also often used for descriptive purposes only, without a value judgment.

I am using it here for descriptive purposes only for fucking assholes (also used for descriptive purposes only).

If you want a history of the classic board game we all know and love, the connections that appeared or disappeared etc., you have to go to Robinette

This was a joke. Perhaps not a very funny one, but I don't mean it seriously funky.

New nomination.

Ultimatelatios54 for his post:

If you are on the corner of a "out of a game" knockout and you KNOW you are going to lose, kamikaze can help inflict a good amount of damage before death. It's bad to do early and mid game because you don't know if you'll lose. I even done some personal kamikazes myself, but it didn't really help and it net me the loss. So it balances in 50 / 50 on the scale currently. Unless the owner of this site implants a new kamikaze setting.

G: Dooooode u just pwned that newb.

This stops players in January from having an undue advantage. Unfortunately, it gives Octoberites an undue advantage, but it has to split up somewhere.

The both of us have join dates from 2+ years back, but only seem to have gotten involved in the past year.
