well, I'll give you a basic lexicon to start off with. l337: leet, or elite. A description of something that's excellent or really good. l337speak: a written language used by sad gamers where numbers and symbols replace letters. Alo has it's own slang terminology. E.g. "You aren't very good" becomes "j00 r t3h suxx0rs!" t3h/teh: Common replacement for 'the'. roxx0rs: if something is 't3h roxx0rs' it's really good. the opposite of this is 't3h suxx0rs.' n00b: A derogatory term for a newbie player, usually because they'retoo bone-headed to make an effort. It's become a general insult. newb/newbie: A more affectionate term for new players or users. h4x: hacks, usually a trainer or something downloaded by a player to give them an unfair advantage. Same as 'sploitz'. h4x is often called out by n00bs when they get the shit kicked out of them by experienced players. w00t: Originally standing for 'we own the other team' w00t has become a general exclamation of delight or satisfaction. pwn/pwnage/ownage: ownage (or pwnage, or teh pwn) is where someone is totally beaten down (owned) by someone else. That's everything I can think of. I can't give you a l337 alphabet because it varies from person to person, and can use very intricate combinations of symbols and numbers or a more basic version.

(sp?) and such variations are put after a word when the person isn't sure if they spelt it right. if they drop the questionmark they know they spelt it wrong.

i r 1337 amphbius (sp?) demon killz0rz!1

the person thinks they spelt 'amphibious' wrong.

i r 1337 amphbius (sp) demon killz0rz!1

the persons knows they spelt 'amphibious' wrong.

j/k and jk stand for 'just kidding.'

Either way, you should know what these mean, but don't say them. '1337speak' is for braindead people.

^^^(could that be bad grammar?) I used to do "2" in place of to "U" in place of you and "r" in place of are. I eventaully started typing normal english again. The people who speak like that are almost nearly noobs or dumb. It is funny when we use it(1337 speek) in the spam fourm thoughsmilie.gif.

Yeah. But thats just sarcasm... Well... I'm not sure if thats quite the right sense I'm looking for, but its close enough. Satire, perhaps?

No, using "l33t" is a way for people try to fill superior but without actually saying anything intelligent so instead of using "big words" they use words that, "kind sort of" look like or sound like another word.
