Newbie is usually more of an affectionate term, while noob is not, as matt said.
I didn't make it!
Hi Thanks for all taking the time and trouble to reply, the reason for asking the question is that me and 3 of my sons all play in a clan we made up and r so fed up for want of a better word of every other word being noob normally pointed at someone who just killed them by whatever means. Just annoying really but puts the kids off. Slightly of track just bought 3 copies of CODUO been trying a few servers, mostly laggy, thinking of setting up or renting my own server any advice would be appreciated. How many could i get playing on a 2mb connection without it lagging, i know theres a lot of variables involved ie other peoples connections and so on. Been thinking of renting a server from filefront if i can get some help with paying. Thanks again

I'd say less than 10, preferably around 5. I'm not an expert, though.
Mr. Whitlow Oh, and most people who call people noobs are noobs themselves. Or just kids/immature people.
Or retards and nerds. You forgot those.
noob is just a word i say to me mates wen we playing cod and just having a laugh, and wen they make a really stupid mistake, "lol noob"
I don't spend enough time here

You will often get called a n00b if you are killing someone over and over. It is just a way for immature people to express their frustration. I've seen the expression "n00btard" used as well. I'm guilty of calling Jeep TKers "jeeptards".
when someone else calls someone a noob its because they are new to the game and whoever is calling is most likely to be a "1337", elite in other words, but what that elite person dont know is that noob is just a way to saying "Hi, im 11 yrs old and im hacking"... and so on
