When something is better than something else of the same category.
Examples[edit | edit source]
- "Whoa, you're imba!"
- "That class is just a little too imba."
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
The term derives from gaming, where different classes within the same game may rise or fall in power as patches and new content is released. Every so often, a class will receive a spell seen to be overpowered in comparison to other classes, and this creates a imbalance between them. To be imbalanced is either a term used to put down those that (seemingly) win fights too easily or it can simply be used to brag about your own accomplishments.
