Noob is a derogatory term. Newbie is inoffensive. That's the main difference as far as I know.

And "newb" is just what you say to confuse people.

Noob=somebody who has experience with the game/site yet has no clue what they are doing.

Newbie=somebody that is new to a game/site and has no former experience of the subject.

Yeah there is.
A newb is new.
A n00b is up for bashing.

From my experience the old timers just don't give a sh*t. The use both words whenever it suits them. I just ignore them. Like they did when they first joined.

who cares?

Yeah, only n00bs say newbie


Just kidding. A newbie is a beginner, a noob is a novice.
I always thought of noob as being less experienced, and newbies as being new in chronological terms. Noobs don't neccessarily refuse to learn, they just don't have the same experience as the old timers. Still, most people seem to use both term interchangeably, so I guess in the long run it doesn't make a difference.

completly off topic, but why are you always so negative?

When you call someone a noob you're making fun of them, but when calling them a newb you're not.

Noobs use cheap-@$$ tricks. Newbies just suck. To make it worse, a lot of newbies are turning into noobs since there are so many nowadays, the newbies think it's the way to play.
