I started playing World of Warcraft in October, 2006. I have friends who’ve been playing since the game was released in November, 2004.

Some explanation to those who don’t get it:
– WOW (World Of Warcraft) is a multi-player online game where you live vicariously through a fantastical character you create. You accomplish quests and kill enemies to advance in level. The game has a lot of depth.
– Noob stands for “newbie”, meaning someone who’s obviously new to an experience, demonstrated by the silly things that may do or ask.
– Pwned stands for pawned or owned, a taunt directed at someone for losing at something or doing something stupid.
Even though I’ve been using the internet forever, I’ve never used those terms. I’ve seen them a lot, but I never was immersed into the internet culture that much to adopt them; however, now that I’m playing WOW and using its chat system, I find myself writing LOL and “ty” (“thank you”) much too often, and that bugs me for some reason.
