I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

A Guide to Video Game Lingo 2

1. Leeroy Jenkins - (noun) a situation where a character charges into a pre-planned situation haphazardly and causes great disaster; named after a popular internet video where a World of Warcraft guild plans a complicated battle strategy while Leeroy Jenkins is away from his computer; upon returning to his computer, Leeroy Jenkins charges into battle shouting his own name and getting his entire guild killed.


2. Noob - (noun) a newcomer or novice; someone without any experience; derived from the word Newbie; sometime spelled n00b.

"Watch out! There's a n00b camping in the stairwell."

3. Face Pull - (verb) to unintentionally initiate combat, most commonly by a character who is unable to serve as a tank; similar to a body pull.

"That n00b face pulled the boss."
