Fun talk:Pwned

Isn't pwned a subjective term? If one person claims the other one was pwned and the other denies it, how can we know who is speaking the truth? Is there some objective criterion to determine whether if someone has been pwned or not? — Unsigned, by: Forces / talk / contribs

Outside of clear cases (e.g. FLAWLESS VICTORY), I think it's usually decided by observers. Kind of like /thread, it's usually considered bad form to claim it for yourself. YMMV, but that's been my experience. 192․168․1․42 (talk) 23:46, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

You had to mention The Game, didn't you?[edit]

You fucking cunts. I made it through 6 seasons of The Guild without losing The Game, but 3 days of reading this wiki ruined the last 6 months of playing. I'm gonna report you to the FSM or something. Jwebb (talk) 17:47, 25 January 2015 (UTC)


I thought it was was a hacker contraction of publicly owned Threadnaught (talk) 18:56, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Ever since I was a teenager, I always thought "pwn" came from a cross between "pawn" and "owned", a pawn being the lowest ranked chesspiece or a person who's just being used to further the means of another. Like "You're a pawn and I just fkng owned you." I don't know if that's just me being stupid or what, though. Nemo (talk) 23:56, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
