Players of online games nowadays have a lot to worry about. From figuring out how to fork out the expenses needed for upgrading their new gaming rig to infighting between gamers, there is a lot to think about. But, there’s one problem that’s even worse than having to install multiple store-clients (Blizzard, Steam, Origin).
Yeah. You guessed it – trolls. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that trolls are the most malignant creatures that exist on the web. They are the spawns of the devil that were chased out of hell and somehow found a home in the pixelated world of online gaming.
We’ve all been there. You’ve just won a crucial game and before you get a chance to celebrate your big victory, you suddenly notice everyone spamming the in-game chat with “bg boring” or “gg ez” or some other profanity. Even worse, trolls that kill you and then stick around waiting for their victims to come back to life only so that they can stab/shoot/axe them dead again, is something we gamers call “griefing” or “camping.”
While many gamers can’t wrap their heads around the sick mindset that leads to this unsportsmanlike behavior, there are still countless trolls on online games, taking out their frustrations, fears, and insecurities out on noobs.
What’s even worse, is what once was a practice of a bunch of 15-year-old brats has now become a norm amongst adults, who find a lack of stimulation “IRL” (in real life) which is just a shame.
