holy crap man you've gone renoob on us...
When you're good at something, then you go for an extended period of time NOT doing it. You lose your touch, and suck at it again. This is being a renoob.
You can also refer to it as describing someone else renoobed, or renoobified.
According to the definition of noob, the word can also be used as 'renewb' , 'renewbie' and 'renewbified'.
"Man, I used to play pool all the time - but after 7 months of not playing, I've become a renoob."
"He used to be so damn good at Halo, but now he's a renoob!"
"Man, he used to be so good at pool - but now he has renoobified."
"Man, he used to be so good at pool - but now he renoobed."
After an extended absence in online gaming, a re-noob is a formerly proficient player who now finds himself making noob-level mistakes.
