When I was 8 years old, my friends and I would insult each other with terms we had heard from older kids and adults, without knowing what they were. We didn't know what fuck you or daussé meant, but we knew it was really bad, and that is all that mattered.

I must admit that I've realized that I am sort of in the same situation today about several Eve insults, and I guess asking is the best way to find out.

Shitlord: Someone who sucks at Eve? There must be more to it than that...
Pubbie: ???
Publord: someone who is both.
Tryhard: seems self evident
Scrub: someone with little isk or influence?
Scrublord: a shitlord who is a scrub?
carebear: included for completeness sake, a hs dweller unwilling to fight.

Comments or further eve insults welcome.

Pubbie originated from the Something Awful forums (i.e., Goonswarm) as a derisive method of referring to a member of the 'public', that is, anyone not in SA. In eve, its usage has mutated to the point where it essentially has no meaning, but it mostly implies someone who isn't in a major null sec alliance. What counts as a major null sec alliance depends on the speaker.

 

Scrub is heavily used in the competitive video game scene, and merely refers to someone who is not only expected to lose, but is unlikely to even come close, losing every game badly. In eve terms, this would be someone who badly pilots a badly fit ship with badly trained skills.

People who whine about not being trusted are either:<br />1) Operatives for the Enemy<br />2) Totally clueless about concepts like OPSEC and need-to-know<br />3) Dangerously neurotic and/or immature<br />and are consequently not to be trusted.

It could also refer to a player who never fits any weapons, and only flies super fast ships that only ever fit electronic warfare to whore on killmails.

A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me; hanging out the passenger side of his best friend's ride, trying to holler at me.

Ok I've always thought:

Shitlord - sov holder who razes his peasants farms, kills their cattle and sleeps with the wives

Pubbie - someone new and ineffectual, someone who needs to find a job

Publord - dude who sits on the same gate day in and day out to keep the Red's from moving it (ok I'm sorry Lady)

Tryhard - someone who just doesn't quite get it ever

Scrub - a member of the fleet who does what he's told

Scrublord - the fc

Carebear - the person who is opposed to any kind of pvp, often mistakenly believes the only place pvp takes place is in a fight with guns

 

I don't like any of them, I prefer to just call someone a renter, a newb or a dumbass.  I don't want to die, and have them not 100% sure of what I meant to call them ;)

Insults specific to RvB

To Baal Zaan: to fly an unnecessarily high class of ship (especially a Battleship) that is lolfitted.

To Cosmo Blink: to spend hours begging for isk to buy a ship that you'll end up losing almost the instant you undock.

Teleing: To never shut up on fleet comms

Ok so scrub and pubbie we have more or less explained, still not quite sure what shitlord is though.  Northern's explanation could be plausible but I've seen it used in situations where that would make no sense at all.
