A basic error on the part of a Warcraft Map Designer; It is a misinterpretation of the word "owned"
In gaming language, it means to be elite and "totally dominate" or to "Own" with a "p" or "Pwn"

It can also be used as sort of a refrence to being "elite" or "uber"

This word was first used when a Warcraft Map Designer screwed up in his designing and programmed the computer(when the other player had lost) to say "You were owned." He made a typo and instead the computer ended up saying "You were pwned."
1."Dude, I just pwned you!"

meaning "Dude, I just owned you!"

2. "Dude, my 90th-level sorceror pwns!"

meaning "Dude, my 90th-level sorceror owns!"

A corrupted version of the word "owned", this..."word"...has been plagueing internet space since the day some nerd accidently hit the "P" key instead of the "o" to display owned. its definition is unknown, as only the retarded can say it, but it is believed to mean "I have no place in Internet gaming".
"Dude I just pwned you hardcore!" *gunshots from every direction*

"Dude I was pwned!" *gunshots from every direction*

The total ownage and/or complete shutdown of a person, place, or thing.

Derived from the word "owned" but is much cooler and more widely used.

It was created because of an idiot who can't spell "owned" (and so therefore he was pwned)
Speaker one: We totally kicked @$$ in the game last night!

Speaker two: Yeah, that team got PWNED!!

This word's origins do infact come from quake 3 like a gentlemen from the first page mentioned. A player named O.G. coined the term. Furthermore it was not a typo error it was done intentionally. I know this because I am the very O.G. himself. Some may remember my handle, mostly played ctf4 on quake.oarie.net. I'm an unknown e-legend. LOL. I am also the one who coined the term "knee grow."
I pwned your ass
Your whole team got pwned.

1. Came from Counter-Strike, meaning "Pistol Owned". Very humiliating for whoever got "pwned" as the pistol is the weakest weapon in the game.
*JN01 just filled Foo full of holes with the pistol!
<JNO1>Hah! You just got pwned!
<Foo>... stfu
