When gaming, you might message "NP" to another gamer to congratulate them on a good move. For example, if your opponent checkmates you in chess online, you might message them, "NP. I didn't see that coming."
Gamers may use NP in all sorts of games, including card-based games like poker and Hearthstone, and turn-based games like RISK or Monopoly. While people may send NP to opponents, they typically send it to teammates because they're too competitive.
Use of NP in sports
People may also message NP when remarking about a person's feat in a sporting competition. For example, if a shortstop (SS) makes a diving stop in baseball and throws the runner out, you might say, "Did you see that NP by Correa?"

Number of pitches
In baseball and softball, NP is a statistic for the total number of pitches one or more pitchers have thrown. The NP may pertain to a specific at-bat (AB), the pitches a pitcher has thrown in an inning or game, or the number of pitches multiple pitchers have thrown in a game.
You will most likely see NP when perusing stats for a game on a sports site or if you follow a sports enthusiast on social media. For example, you may follow a sports writer on Twitter, and they may tweet, "I can't believe he's at 35 NP thru 5 innings. That's Maddux-level efficiency!"

Np is an abbreviation of "Neopets," which are virtual pets people create and care for via the neopets.com website. The game is similar to Tamagotchi and Pokémon.
Adam and Donna Powell launched the site in 1999, Viacom and Nickelodeon acquired it in 2005, then sold it to JumpStart Games in 2014, which NetDragon acquired in 2017. Np was especially popular in the 2000s, primarily among kids and tweens.
In the game, you must take care of your Neopets, or they may die. But you can also earn currency (Neopoints or Neocash), buy items for your Neopets, and explore the Neopia world.

NP is another way of saying "you're welcome" or "don't mention it" when texting, gaming, or messaging online. People commonly use it when responding to someone's gratitude.
For example, when your friend thanks you for helping him move, you might respond with "NP. Glad I could help!" Or, when your crush apologizes for hitting you with her car, you might say, "NP, I don't need the use of my legs!"
NP is one of many abbreviations and acronyms for responding to someone's thanks. Other options include YW, NBD, urw, and NTN.
