The word “pwned” was a mistake. A guy from the Warcraft 3 development team meant to type “owned” but made a typo. Now, everybody uses it.

I’ve been wondering where that originated. Thanks!

never a problem, I think one key would have been a massive mistake!!
Agree. Imagine if you’re working on something and accidentally clicked that single button. puff – everything is gone.

Never a problem for me either, not to mention that a one button only could have been pressed accidentally and alt-tabbing me from Dota2 (it happens sometimes with the Win logo tho :bigsmile: ).
