An incredibly stupid typo of "Ownt" which a bunch of nerds picked up and when asked why they responded with the first thing they could think of.
Nerd1: I PWNT YOU NUBE
Guy: STFU NERD, PWNT ISN'T EVEN A WORD
Nerd2:YEAH IT IS YOU NEWBER!!!11
Guy:THEN WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Nerd1:UMMMMMM.... POWER OWNT AHAHAHAH!!!oneonetilde!!!
Origins stem from owned, ownage, ownt. The character 'o' is next to the character 'p' on the keyboard. It was formed when some anonymous original party accidentally hit the 'p' for the word "OWNED".
It has the exact same meaning as the verb to own. The two words and their derivatives can be used interchangeably.
1. When a player is severely beaten by another player or party of players, in a game.
2. An expletive about a situation where something painful, embarassing, or bad happens to someone in real life.
The main dispute with this word is its pronunciation. It is originally believed that the 'p' is an accident and therefore not pronounced. However, several pronunciations have become accepted: p'ownt, pwynt, pinnt, etc.
1. Gamer 1: I just killed your entire group and won the game.
Gamer 2: You pwnt us all...
2. Oh my God, did you see that guy get hit by that car? He was pwnt!
A contraction of pwned. Whiles its meaning is essentially the same, the word's abrupt ending lends it a terse quality, making it especially suitable for the description of particularly sudden or decisive ownage.
Noob1 runs out firing constantly in a spasticated fashion, but suddenly stops dead after being killed by a single shot to the head. In this scenario, Noob1 has been pwnt.
A sudden, decisive and somewhat catastrophic ownage. the word originates from pwnage which roots from ownage. A synonym would be ownt and can be used in the same context.
killerking is blown out of cover by insomniac's grenade, then mercilessly sniped in the head.
After reading what others have posted regarding this 'word', I decided I had to post the real origins of this word, as everyone had left out an important part of the word's makeup: the 'P'.
The word is a simple combination of pawn/pawned and own/owned.
I pwnt that noob.
Is pownt (power owned) times pi.
Dude1:Yes! I ownd u.
Dude2:I pownt you.
Dude3:I pwnt u all hahaha.
Refer to the other definition except pwnt was not an accidental mis-spell of the word "owned" or "ownt". Yes, the 'p' IS beside the 'o' geographically on the keyboard, however, the word 'pwn' actually means 'pure ownage'. GGKTHXn00b.
1. Bragging n00b A: I asura'd that guy in the balls
Dead n00b B: he pwnt me D:
2. i pwnt the definition above :d
Originnally a typo of own, pwn also can be looked at as "Pawned." pwnt is just the past tense of pwn.

SOFII player2: pwnt like a n00b ;)
