Okay, this might sound daft but I am so curious now and have wondered for a long time what "ftw" stands for. Can somebody please tell me?

Yup, "For the win".

Quote:

FTW
"For The Win."

An enthusiastic emphasis to the end of a comment, message, or post. Sometimes genuine, but often sarcastic.

Originated from the game show Hollywood Squares where the result of the player's response is expected to win the game.
Bob: Your 1up t-shirt rocks
Sally: 1up t-shirts ftw.

Thesaurus:
is better, beats, pwns.
Good ol' urban dictionary.

I think it's used to say that something is good like I'd say Teenhelp FTW. But I'm sure someone else can add to that and make it sound better then I explained it.

It stood for Fuck The World....but that has been eroded in turn by For The Win.


The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.

"Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it." - George Bernard Shaw


22:36 [Ergg] It's so much better to be a girl
22:36 [Ergg] IMO
22:36 [Jamie] Naw. Two words: Periods. Childbirth.
22:36 [Ergg] One word: Birth control
22:37 [Jamie] That's two words.

Actually it does in some contexts. I believe it was the Hells' Angels slogan with that meaning.

Generally it means For the Win though.

Biker: Ahh... I need to look all tough like. FTW

person: I just ate ice cream
other person: ICE CREAM FTW!
