A language/dialect used by to a certain extent by nearly all gamers and computer hackers. The grammar of 1337 varies, and not only are letters replaced by symbols, but there are other rules too, such as certain misspellings.

1337 is basically the 1337 way of saying elite. One who is elite often speaks in 1337 to put across this message, though crappy players often use the to try and appear 1337 (elite).

Some common 1337 words:
1337- elite
pwn- own (kick the ass of)
h4xx0r- hacker
5uxxz0r- sucker
n00b- newbie, crappy person
STFU- shut the f*ck up
OMFG- oh my f*cking g*d
R0FL/\/\GD/\/\F40- rolling around floor laoughing my g*d damn mother f*cking ass off!
j00- you

Over 1337ing should be avoided at all costs. It looks untidy. And in an online game it is
a) hard to type without dieing
b) hard for team mates to read without dieing
