Contrary to popular belief, QQ is not a set of crying
eyes. It actually originated with the advent of Warcraft II. On battlenet, you could
press ALT+Q+Q to immediately exit the match and program. Thus the term "QQ" was to tell people
to just quit because they are unskilled. The term later developed
and lost it's origin and is usually mistaken as crying
In contemporary gamer
culture, QQ has become the mainstream emoticon for crying
eyes, though it is still often used in it's traditional sense.
