Evolving from the word New-byers, meaning new passing byers in town, this changed to newbie, the shortened form of this is newb.

A newb is a word used over the internet many times, usually meaning new to a subject/topic, usually a game.

A noob was evolved through the uneducated side of games played by usually children, runescape for example, where children didn't know the exact spelling of newb and changed it to noob.

Newb and noob shouldn't be confused however, newb is a new person to a game but wants to become better and be like the higher levels in a game. A noob is a new player who tends to be aggrovating and will usually spam, beg, or find any other way to annoy other players.

As not many people like those kind (noobs), the term has become something over the internet to become offensive.

Noo-B
-noun

1. A popular slang word in Internet gaming, used to insult and demean an opposing gamer as if they were inexperiened or completely inept at their respective game.

(Newb derives from Newbie. noob, nub, n00b are all acceptable substitutions for newb. It is commonly thought today that noob predates newb, which is incorrect. Real newbs have created a rift between the words newb and noob, which in reality is a mistake because they are synonyms. It is believed in the last 2 years with the emergence of kids born post-1990 in the gaming world that noob has become the more popular of the two because these newbs are searching for their own identity and 'original' word.
