ggnore

interjection Greeting; acronym; clipping
a parting message at the end of a competitive (videogame) match, which means “Good Game NO REmatch.”
 
The word is sarcastically typically by the winners of a competitive, oftentimes video-gaming, match. They are mocking the idea of good sportsmanship, which involves saying “good game” and shaking hands at the end of a game. They modify the phrase “good game” with a “no rematch,” which denies the opponents any chance of retribution for their loss, thus leaving the winner with an unmarked record. Like many phrases in video-gaming, keyboard phrases are meant to be easy to type, and are thus simplified immensely to a form of jargon. This term was probably coined to demonstrate feigned respect for the opponent, in an effort to mock. Example: You guys were terrible, ggnore.
Etymology : ggnore is a modification of the phrase “good game.” ggnore is an acronym of the words good, game, no, and rematch. The root match has the affix re- attached to it, which means again or once more. The portion of ggnore for rematch is clipped into re.
