"Pure Pwnage" (pronounced "pure ownage",The word "pwnage" can be pronounced several different ways. The show's creators pronounce it "ownage". Jeremy justifies this pronunciation with the following statements: "When people say '/poʊn/', they sound like a complete fag, and I'm not cool with being a fag, so I pronounce it 'own'." "'Pwn' was originally a typo of 'own', because the 'P' is near the 'O' on the keyboard. The person is still trying to say 'own'." [TeamSpeak chat, December 13 2005] .] IPA2|'phjʊɹ oʊnɪdʒ) is an Internet-distributed mockumentary series from ROFLMAO Productions. The fictional series purports to chronicle the life and adventures of Jeremy (played by Jarett Cale), a Canadian self-proclaimed "pro gamer". Originating in 2004, eighteen episodes of the series have been released to date. The creators of the show recently estimated their current viewer base to be well over three million. [cite web| title = The Infancy of Internet Television | author = Geoff Lapaire | publisher = Pure Pwnage| url = http://www.purepwnage.com/index.php?GUID=19150 | accessdate = 2007-11-17 ] The series is filmed primarily in Toronto but has also included scenes filmed in Calgary, Montreal, and the Netherlands.

Overview

The episodes are filmed mostly from the vantage point of Kyle (Geoff Lapaire), Jeremy's brother and roommate in the series. Lapaire, a former Ph.D. physics student, [cite web| title = Geoff Lapaire Curriculum Vitae| publisher = University of Toronto|url = http://www.physics.utoronto.ca/~glapaire/ | accessdate = 2007-11-17 ] is currently working full time on "Pure Pwnage", making income from the "noobstore", an online store selling merchandise such as T-shirts, stickers, a DVD version of the first twelve episodes and a CD soundtrack.cite video |people= Darren Kitchen (Host), Wes Tobler (Co-Host), Alanna Buehring (Co-host)|date2= 2006-12-05 |title= Hak5 Pure Pwnage Documentary|url=http://www.hak5.org/archives/152 | publisher= Hak5|accessdate=2007-11-18 | time= 26:30] In an interview with "Good Game", Geoff Lapaire (Kyle) stated that there will be three seasons each consisting of twelve episodes and possibly a feature length film, although their plans are not set in stone.

This show has generated a strong cult following. The characters, as seen through eighteen episodes, are becoming known in real life. Although staged, the recognition seems genuine. As well, the official Internet forum has several users counting posts into the thousands discussing the show.

Most of the information about the "Pure Pwnage" series comes from the TeamSpeak chat public interviewsStarting with Episode 8, the "Pure Pwnage" cast and crew hold a public TeamSpeak interview soon after the release of each episode, revealing many details about the show and the personalities involved in its creation. The recordings of each episode are linked in a [http://www.purepwnage.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=54783 post] on the forums.] , the "Pure Pwnage" website, the featurettes, and the regular episodes (see List of Pure Pwnage episodes).

The world of "Pure Pwnage"

"Pure Pwnage" takes the audience to a world where the power and importance of video games is revealed to be far greater than the gaming layman might expect. Kyle appears to film the show in gonzo, and it seems to mix the real world with a fictional one, blurring this with references outside Kyle's lens at times (shown in a letterboxed format). The show, and its extension in the internet community, extensively breaks the "fourth wall". Hence fans typically address the show's characters as if they were real people. However, in episode 12, the final episode of season one, this trend was altered. In the end credits, the names of the cast and creators of "Pure Pwnage" were revealed. The face of Kyle, which had never been seen before in the series, was also revealed.

Gamer Army

Often referred to as "Teh Gamer Army" or "PPGA", this is a small part of the "Pure Pwnage" community where gamers can [http://www.gamerarmy.com sign up] (for US$19.99) to obtain "gamer army" status on the forum, thereby gaining access to deeper parts of the forum where gamers discuss events that could be played between members of the gamer army. They also receive material recognition under the form of a dog tag with their gamer army number, name, and two other lines of their choice (suggested is favourite game, guild/clan name, date of birth or real-life name). [cite web | url = http://www.purepwnage.com/member/signup.php | title = Gamer Army Recruitment center| accessdate=2007-11-18 | author = Pure Pwnage]

The gamer army's soldiers have grown exponentially, and currently are led primarily by classified members of the Special Ops Division. Almost all knowledge of the Special Ops Division is classified, and unknown. There seems to be an Alternate Reality Game taking place, revolving around a kidnapped member of the Gamer Army. Parts of this mission have been recently [http://www.gamerarmy.com/public_affairs.php?player=revver&mediaId=490684&affiliateId=108598&title=Mask%20is%20MIA:%20Mission%20Summary de-classified] .

Micro

Most characters in "Pure Pwnage" exhibit a video game playing ability known simply as micro. The neologism "micro" stems from micromanagement strategies inherent in playing RTS games effectively. Micromanagement in RTS was originally known as the player's direct, real time control of any of his given units, causing them to behave exactly as intended, reacting on the small scale. This control method requires a high degree of dexterity, speed and skill in handling input devices such as a mouse and keyboard. "Macro"management, in contrast, is a management style concerned with planning and organizing economy, infrastructure, and strategic movements on a larger scale. One's "micro" ability is applicable to any manner of video gaming, suggesting that any individual function of any given game peripheral may be managed with a significant level of refinement and expertise.

The primary function of micro is to win while playing video games, and otherwise pwning n00bs. However, micro can be both practiced and made use of in real life, otherwise known as "RL". Examples of this include efficiently dialing telephone numbers and quickly checking one's bank balance at an ATM.

When a video game player reaches a certain high level of ability, that gamer transcends mere micro ability, and thus possesses "über micro". [Episode 2 ("Girls") suggests that only pro gamers such as Jeremy possess über micro. Examples of his superior micro ability are apparent in every episode. Jeremy's explanation of über micro were reported in the December 2005, UK edition of PC Gamer. He was quoted as saying, "to have über-micro is to be completely at one with the controls of the game. It's to have a thought in your head, and never for one moment examine how that's going to get out into the game; it just flows through you. To have über-micro is to know that at every moment all your units are doing exactly what you want. Your brain is flowing straight to your hands. It's sort of like qi, you know. You've got to close your mind to all things, and focus on the micro."] To attain a high degree of über micro, the gamer must undergo significant physical and spiritual training. This training is conducted under the tutelage of a person with much greater micro. [Episode 4 ("Pwn or Be Pwned") shows Jeremy enhancing his micro with training by Teh_Masterer, who certainly displays micro capabilities greater than Jeremy's in multi-genre gaming. Teh_Masterer is also seen training lesser video game players in Episode 9 ("The Story of Dave"). Episode 8 ("LANageddon") shows Jeremy and Doug training each other in their respective genres, as each man possessed substantially greater micro than the other in their individual games before the training session.]

Those who possess partial or complete über micro abilities are able to practice their micro without the aid of an actual peripheral device. To the layperson, it appears that a person demonstrating über micro is keying and mouse-clicking empty space. [Jeremy shows his micro to Teh_Masterer in Episode 4 ("Pwn or Be Pwned") without the use of a keyboard. Being an experienced video game player, Teh_Masterer comprehends Jeremy's micro ability. In Episode 2 ("Girls") the non-gaming people do not comprehend Jeremy's micro demonstration.] Micro can also be performed to a lesser extent using console or arcade controllers.

Those who have achieved a significantly high level of über micro may begin to manifest their video game playing abilities in more profound ways while in real life. In this way, characters in "Pure Pwnage" are not limited by the normal restrictions of reality. [In Episode 9 ("The Story of Dave"), many characters clearly demonstrate abilities that transcend the boundaries of reality. Most notable is the ability for various pro gamers to use their micro to physically combat each other in real life, their skills and powers manifesting in the form of electrical orbs that can be used as projectiles. Said projectiles appear in multiple colors and size variations. Kyle being knocked to the ground by a micro attack during the micro battle shows that micro can also be effective against non-gamers.]

Characters

During an interview, director Geoff Lapaire (although as "Kyle"; Lapaire maintained his "Kyle" identity among fans and media) insisted that all of the characters on the show are not acting.Starting with Episode 8, the "Pure Pwnage" cast and crew hold a public TeamSpeak interview soon after the release of each episode, revealing many details about the show and the personalities involved in its creation. The recordings of each episode are linked in a [http://www.purepwnage.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=54783 post] on the forums.] He suggests that the personalities on "Pure Pwnage" display their true-to-life abilities and eccentricities, and the characters take great pains to maintain that the "Pure Pwnage" world is simply an extension of the real world. Lapaire has finally admitted that they are in fact actors. The sixth fanchat with the crew was out-of-character, where the fact that the characters within "Pure Pwnage" are exaggerated versions of the actors was confirmed.

; Jeremy (aka teh_pwnerer) (played by [http://www.myspace.com/jarettcale Jarett Cale] ) : The protagonist of "Pure Pwnage", twenty-five year old Jeremy [cite web |url=http://www.myspace.com/teh_real_jeremy |title=Jeremy's Official Myspace |accessdate=2007-08-17 |format=html |work= ] is a stereotypical pro gamer. He lives in Toronto, Canada with his younger brother, Kyle. Jeremy spends the vast majority of his time playing video games and "pwning n00bs", using the online handle teh_pwnerer ("the owner-er"). He has been playing games since the age of two, when he used to "toaly pwn Pong" (totally own Pong).

: Due to Jeremy's profound immersion in video game culture, his social skills have atrophied. Because Jeremy has lived in his basement for most of his life, he has had very little conversation with any other person and has therefore taught himself how to speak. This means his fictional accent is slurred and full of interjections such as "like" and "'n' stuff". However, he has also developed the ability to quickly master any video game, and can play competitively against extremely skilled opponents. Jeremy often makes narcissistic comments about himself. See [http://www.myspace.com/teh_real_jeremy Jeremy's MySpace] .

; Kyle (played by [http://www.myspace.com/geofflapaire Geoff Lapaire] ) : Jeremy's younger brother and director of the show, Kyle is working full-time on Pure Pwnage, and ROFLMAO productions . He determines what events to film, but usually just follows Jeremy around. Occasionally, he tries to introduce Jeremy to a diversion from video gaming. According to Jeremy, Kyle is a "toal n00b" (total noob) in many ways.

: The show is shot almost entirely from Kyle's point of view and he often talks to the other characters. [There are some instances where Kyle is caught on camera. In Episode 2 ("Girls"), when Jeremy is talking about the one time he pwned, the mirror behind him gives a presumably accidental glimpse of Kyle filming. In addition, Episode 9 ("The Story of Dave"), gives a third person shot of Kyle filming when the group is ambushed, but his face is hidden behind the camera as usual.] His face is finally revealed in Episode 12.

: In Episode 18, it reveals that Kyle is also a porn director.

; Doug (aka fps_doug) (played by [http://www.myspace.com/joelgardiner Joel Gardiner] ) : Jeremy's boisterous best friend and rival, Doug spends most of his time playing FPS games such as "", "Call of Duty 4", and defeating his opponents by skillfully "getting the headshot". According to Doug, his skills frequently get him banned from servers due to accusations of him hacking. Doug has serious anger management issues, and can appear to be a psychopath, obsessed with FPS games to the point that he goes out training and practicing headshots in real life with an imaginary gun and holding the belief that carrying a large kitchen knife whilst running makes him go faster. At the end of the first season, Doug betrays Jeremy for a conspiring, unidentified organization, but they reunite as friends during Jeremy's birthday party in episode 16 as they pwn together on .

: Doug's triumphant catchphrase, "BOOM! HEADSHOT!", has become a popular exclamation among FPS players and has appeared on many online message boards and chatrooms.: The character Brucie in Grand Theft Auto IV bears a striking resemblance to Doug both in terms of looks and personality and is reported to have been modelled on him.

; Dave (aka Dawei, his Chinese name) (played by [http://www.myspace.com/pro_at_cooking Dave Lee] ): Jeremy's friend, notable for his cooking skills and his nonchalant sense of humour, Dave is first introduced as a crew member in a "behind the scenes" featurette at the end of Episode 3 ("FPS Doug"). He excels at fighting games such as "Street Fighter II" but is usually seen cooking or casually observing Jeremy's and Kyle's antics. He has started his own web cooking show, named "Pro at Cooking".

: Dave left the show after Episode 9 ("The Story of Dave"), saying he had things to do back in China (he later returned in Episode 13, entitled "Old Habits"). The webcomic later revealed that he was really moving to Vancouver for a new job. However, the creators of "Pure Pwnage" have been known to be misleading, and the webcomic could very well be a filler for those looking for an explanation on why Dave left the show. The [http://www.hak5.org/archives/152 Hak5 episode 2x05] on Pure Pwnage implies that Dave simply didn't want to star in the show and requested to be written out in a positive way. Recently, Dave posted a story on the main page of the website about his life in China, with a picture attached. One of Jeremy's MySpace friends took pictures of the [http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/8772/tnlookingfordavekv8.jpg"spot"] where Dave also took his picture, and is in fact located in Toronto's Chinatown, also in his new show "Pro at Cooking" at 1:33 he walks by the same place. Dave returned to the show in season 2, rescuing Jeremy from his "near pwned" experience vs Doug and the Big Bad. He refused to say what happened in China but he resumes playing games and cooking for Jeremy and Kyle.

; Teh_Masterer (voiced by Fr William Craig and played by Geoff Lapaire) : Always clad entirely in ninja clothing, Teh_Masterer is a mysterious master gamer who trains Jeremy and others in the ways of being a pro gamer. His micro ability is so profound that he can play multiple video games at once, and he claims that he once "beat Garry Kasparov and Deep Blue with nothing more than a row of pawns and a single bishop." He lives in seclusion in a small apartment , but he does have access to a training area (Kyle refers to this as the "room with no exits"). His true identity was unknown until Episode 12, where it is stated that Geoff Lapaire (who plays Kyle) plays Teh_Masterer. In Episode 11, when Jeremy visits Holland, Teh_Masterer appears to be under surveillance by some form of agency such as the CIA, who are tracking Teh_Masterer's network of gamers and apprentices. Whether this story arc will be picked up on or continued in the future is unknown. Teh_Masterer wears black ninja clothing to protect his exceptionally sensitive skin, a condition he developed from playing video games for fifteen straight years in a dim basement. [In the "Pure Pwnage" forums, a user's [http://www.purepwnage.com/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=6702&view=findpost&p=88712 post] pointed out a physical resemblance between Teh_Masterer and a musician named Geoff Lapaire (Kyle), based in Toronto. The presence of a link to the "Pure Pwnage" site at the bottom of [http://www.physics.utoronto.ca/~glapaire/ Lapaire's website] suggests the possibility that he is the actor who plays Teh_Masterer and/or is "Pure Pwnage"'s music producer. In Episode 12, it is revealed that Geoff Lapaire plays both Kyle and Teh_Masterer. A [http://www.purepwnage.com/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=6702&view=findpost&p=156298 later post] in the same thread confirms Geoff Lapaire's association with "Pure Pwnage", as the purepwnage.com domain name is registered under the name "Geoff Lapaire." His specific connection to Teh_Masterer remained unconfirmed until recently, although in a FAQ by a root admin of the forum [http://www.purepwnage.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=649&st=0&p=12204&entry12204] it was verified that "Geoff is the web guy, he makes the Pure Pwnage web page and the store page." In Episode 12, however, it was revealed that Kyle is played by Lapaire and that Lapaire directs Pure Pwnage, as well as composing music for the show]

; Anastasia (Nicknames: Stasia and Tagi) (played by [http://www.myspace.com/miranda_plant Miranda Plant] ): MMO-playing Anastasia is Jeremy's first, but former love interest on "Pure Pwnage". She interacts with Jeremy off-camera in Episode 2 ("Girls"), but the audience never sees her meet him until Episode 6 ("Imapwnu of Azeroth"). She plays "World of Warcraft" under the pseudonym "Tagi". In episode 14, Jeremy decides to delete her character in World of Warcraft after it becomes apparent that Anastasia has become addicted to it. Anastasia and Jeremy have different views about video games, as she believes they should be social—not just about pwning noobs. In episode 12, it is revealed that she has turned into a vegetarian because of the health benefits. In episode 17, Jeremy sees Anastasia dancing with a guy, when she told him she was going for a "girl's night out." This ultimately leads to their break up. See also [http://mmogrrl.blogspot.com/ Anastasia's weblog] .

; Terence Brown (Nicknames: T-bag) (played by [http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=62225467 Troy Dixon] ): In episode 15 T-bag is introduced to the cast. An expert at the Halo series, quoted as making "250 000 last year playing Halo". Jeremy and him get off to a bad start at the release of Halo 3 as they wait in line. However they meet again in the street and decided to start anew. Jeremy is invited to T-bags Halo 3 party, where he sees Doug. Doug and Jeremy then have a 1v1, and Jeremy eventually decides to leave because he didn't feel comfortable. It can be assumed that T-bag will now be a permanent part of the cast as he also appeared in episodes 16-18.

; Kris: In episode 17, Dave is shown with a younger pupil that is a part of an exchange training program set-up by Teh_Masterer. Kris is the young gamer that is assigned to Jeremy. Jeremy explains that Kris is the best of the younger gamers. In episode 18 Jeremy talks about Kris with T-Bag once they are on his yacht, where Jeremy implies that Kris is a guy, But at the very end of the episode, we are shown a brief clip of Kris, who turns out to be a very attractive girl in goth wear.

Online community

"Pure Pwnage" has spawned a large online gaming community on the web; the [http://www.purepwnage.com/forums Official Pure Pwnage Forums] , which were created in early October 2004, boast more than one million posts to which over 20,000 members have contributed, and 1,338 users were simultaneously online on June 21, 2006. Pure Pwnage also runs a [irc://irc.quakenet.org/purepwnage Community Internet Relay Chat] and its own TeamSpeak server, in which many of its fan chats are held.

Pure Pwnage: The Comic

From February 28, 2006 to March 7, 2007, the "Pure Pwnage" website featured a regularly issued comic, of which a new page was released once every two to three weeks. Apparently set in the "real world" rather than in the magical world of "Pure Pwnage", the comic breaks most of the fourth wall of the show. For example, Dave held in the show that he was leaving it due to unfinished business in China, the comic claims that the real reason was that he had found a new job in Vancouver.

However, both the show and comic clearly contain elements that are either symbolic representations of reality (for example, pwning an opponent with "micro balls" as a possible metaphor for pwning them in an actual video game) or are not based in reality whatsoever.
