It seems to me that noob has lost its meaning - I am LV 5, my daughter is LV 5 and she is pretty good (50% win/lose in pairs). Now we are sometimes called noobs (even by others of lower rank), appears to me that NOOB has just become a derogarotary remark made by a partner when he does not like how you are playing. Surely a Noob is someone new to the game and still getting to grips with the basics, spmeone you should be encouraging even if you are losing!

Or am I wrong and a Noob is anyone below say LV 7?

How come we don't get that kind of thing in C&C or Act of War or Dawn of War or Call of Duty - generally there derogatory comments are a rarity and if anyone is new we try to help them (not throw our toys) - what is it that brings a new meaning to Noob in COH and the attitude so different?

Ok , i am fairly new , i have played about 45 games online .. won 35 lost 10. I only play 1 on 1 since i have no decent team mate to play with and it frustrates me when i lose due to the ignorance of others. I am level 2 , But i dont really care about my rank so i dont play ranked games. However i am beating people who are on level 7 and above on 1 v 1 games. Imo "n00b" has nothing to do with your rank , since some1 on rank 7 could be the same skill level as a rank 1 due to the rank 1 not wanting to play ranked matches. IMO a n00b on coh is some1 who doesnt understand the concept of using the resource sectors , does not using cover , uses snipers without cammo and basicaly just turtles in his base.

I wouldn't sweat it Eigs. Online play is unfortunately smattered with people who like name calling - "n00b" being one. Don't pay any attention to it. Try to find a handful of online "friends" you can count on to be normal and play with them.

Using "n00b" to call everyone is a less direct way of saying, "I am a huge pussy and have nothing better to do with my meaningless life." Thats why I only play LAN's with friends and the computer. Those douches also play so much that its hella unfair and not fun for anyone, except them of course.
