Post JK/Gamer Slang

OK I've had the full game of JK for about a year now (June 5, 2002. One of the best days of my life) and i've been active on the Zone. One thing i noticed is that JK gamers seem to have their own sort of slang that describes stuff. Or is this gamer slang and i'm just sheltered from other games???...

ok here's my compendium:

w00t: cool. really really cool.

w00tness: pretty much the same as w00t

n00b: newbie, or not newbie but an insult...

OwN: To Kick *** at

OwNaGe: the art/process of owning

Lagger: sometimes combined with n00b, someone with a 1k modem that lives in siberia

Haxor: not sure about this one... only saw it once when i was using my saber throw pistol (Hehehehe)

Anything else to add? u got more words/better definitions?

no im definitely not a n00b, but i havent advanced to the rank of level builder/cog maker yet. im sorta "middle class Jedi Knight"

heheheh "n00b OwNaGe" games at MERC oasis are funny to watch..........

Actually that slang came forth from Quake 3 Arena o.o and other such games, it's commonly known as l33t

Is that pronounced like "late" or "leet"?

Aresen, where sanity is abnormal.
JK.com, where you can wax nostalgic about a great game
GB.com, where people are more normal, but still fun to hang around with

Leet, since the 3 representeds an E o.o it Leet originated from the word "Elite" as well , those silly gamers.

This sort of lingo has been around since the Quake 2 days and before in almost every FPS. You're just sheltered.

Ye but many of those words are now cliché's like n00b, that obviously originated from newbie, meaning new and sucks but so many "noobs" use that word themselves that its not even insulting if your called a noob.
