It's one in which you usually do not know the other people, and they're not very experienced. Pubs are played in Garena and B.Net.

pub = public.
It means everyone is welcome to play there.
Whether or not you will bow to me is not open to debate. The question is, will I ever let you rise?

Before you post, remember this...
-The opinion of the majority doesn't represent a fact (it represents an opinion).
-You do not represent the majority.
-em is part of DotA. Denying it is the same as living in denial.
-Whining is part of the human nature.
-Adding insults in your text doesn't make you look cool, it makes you look stupid.

the term pub is often used by elitist fags to show how awesome they are and how crappy moron someone else is.

common uses:
everything works in pub: to show that your penis is bigger than the OPs.
pubstomp: another way to express how awesome you are. "i pubstomped with xy crap hero" means that you're so awesome that you can win versus a bunch of other guys using and underused hero (which usually has suboptimal items). the fact that you're able to pubstomp with xy usually shows nothing and noone cares about it, but it's a good way to boost your ego.
pubber: the pubber is usually someone, who - as far as you know - has smaller penis than you (either on internet or irl).

A pub game is a game in which you play with and against players you haven't played a lot with before.
