Japan Amazed By L33T Speak

L33T Speak probably isn't something you want to teach someone, if only because it is an annoying way to type. But an American reporter decided that Japan needs to learn the fine nuances of the 'l33t' language and the Japanese audience seemed thrilled with this new way of typing! (Mobile)

You can thank old school Counter Strike fans for 1337 speak.

I'd rather BLAME them for l33t speak

It spread from Quake.
Though, make no mistake, it existed even before then. But Quake and later Quake3 messed it up and spread it to Counter-Strike, polluting it.

im fairly positive it was invented by starcraft players. But made popular by cs players

NO VIDEOGAMES invented ''L337'' speak
''L337'' speak is just stupid abbreviations and numbers used instead of letters.

It was not invented by any community. I DEFINITELY remember McD signs using numbers if they ran out of a letter back before online gaming was anything (Or even the internet).

leet speak is just annoying. I don't see what the point is really. Anyone with a brain can understand leet speak so you might as well type normally.

It is annoying but as gamers we are used to it. Every thing we talk about and read gets abbreviated. Game titles especially..

MGS4 to name just a few examples. But you and I know exactly what each of those means.
Pennywise  +   1789d ago
That is not l33t speak... thats abbreviations or acronyms .

Just like they were and still are thrilled with the English language.

Don't tell Japan about these things, it only makes things worse.

No, I'm not anyone of historical significance, whatever the hell that means. Americans physicists also invented the first transistors a long time ago, so I was just joking about L33T speak being the first thing. Foxgod, don't be a douche, please.

I though 133t was made by Hackers.
I thought 133t was made by hackers to thwart the FBI from using the old search engines to sniff out hacker webpages during one of the hacker crackdown's.

Started with Quake 1. Sadly I was a part of this back in the day. :( Quake 1 by itself wasn't popular enough to allow it to catch on at a widespread level. For that, you can thank Counter-Strike. Now we are teaching the Japanese bad language and grammar. Yay!
