    So, was on my way home from work and listening to the Free Beer and Hotwings show and they played this video. Fucking amazing. I'm so proud of some good trolls out there.

    Trolling instead of playing is what sucks about online gaming. Unfortunately the trolls have run off too many of the legit gamers.

    This could all be fixed by not using a mic....... I used to play Bad company 2 a lot on console when i borrowed it from my brother in law and i never used that shit.

    But honestly...... if your that stupid to do that then you deserve it. Kinda like the emote in Wow PVP where they do the:

    Snuffles has reported you afk! Type /afk to unafk.

    and 15 people leave bg

    Sexy girl voice though :thumbsup

    What your saying is that you went into a game with the intent of ruining someone else's pleasure in playing the game. Just so that you can call them stupid and feel smug about it, and you don't see anything wrong with that?

    Edit* Congratulations on outsmarting 11yo's

    Read better...... I didn't say "I" did that, just that i've seen it. I used MY name instead of trying to make up a name.......... literal much?

    And yes if your speak before you think and something bad happens then yes it is your own fault

    You did imply that u did it, and my argument against trolling is still valid despite my inability to hear your tone in written form. What are your thoughts on trolling then? I'm sure you have some reasonable thoughts and don't simply name call when somebody expresses an idea contrary to yours.

    Trolling is just internet pranks.... Take them too seriously and you only make a fool of yourself.

    So in our community we should accept people going into our servers with the intention of hurting the experience for others? Trolling has wrecked many online games, to the point that an MMO can not be successful unless it is virtually troll proof. Xbox and Playstation spend countless man hours banning trolls, as trolling hurts the sales of games and communities like ours that try to host servers. As an example look our usually empty TTT server, it's a troll heavy game so nobody plays it because the trolls have run everybody out. Prank's are something fun for both sides, trolls don't intend for there trolls to be funny to the other person, rather they usually intend to ruin the other persons gaming experience.

    I see you keep resorting to name calling in place of intelligence. Perhaps some actual thought is in order?

    what name calling?!?

    I wasn't calling YOU a fool, i used it as the general saying of "making a fool of yourself"

    Man.. are you trolling me...

    Not all trolling has an intent to harm or ruin peoples experience. Take this video, it's 'trolling' and although it leads to the sign out screen, it doesn't actually sign anyone out, and most people who fell for it end up laughing because, it's fairly clever and funny.
    There's different levels of trolling, and harmless stuff like this shouldn't be taken seriously, because the offence isn't serious. People that take down whole servers? Yeah not many people like that crap. There's a difference between minor inconvenience and seriously messing everything up.
    Legit gamers are not leaving because of trolling, though they may change server (logical.. easy.. etc).

    The less pissed off you get, the easier it is to move on and find rational solutions.

    I don't think in this particular instance it was harmless. He was intentionally pissing them off to make them yell Xbox Sign Out. If they were just calling his name to get his attention that would be different. He was body blocking in several shots so they players couldn't move. That's bad trolling.

    Either way, if you stop feeding trolls they will die. They feed on what you say. If nobody acknowledges trolls then there will be no more trolling.
