How to Deal with Trolls

Post by JibJabJessie on February 12th 2013, 12:59 am

So with this Season 5 Confogl League, we do not plan on enforcing anti-teabagging rules or "he called me bad" type of complaints. We've ALL gone through this kind of trolling, and some of us even partake in this action as well. Why do people do it? Well they do it for many reasons, but the main reason I would say is for entertainment. The best way to deal with someone who bothers you is to ignore them. You may respond back to them at your discretion, but be aware they will think, hook, line, and sinker. You responding merely adds fuel to the fire. Unless of course you want to be a troll back at them, go ahead. I personally don't want any part of it. Been there, done that. Thing is, this is NOT life. Dust that dirt off your shoulder. Best way to forgive is to forget. You will save a lot of time and crying sessions in bed if you learn to ignore the trolls.

But with that being said, there are limitations that could possibly get a team banned. This will be extremely rare, if it happens at all. Why ban teams for being trolls when our community is so small in the first place? Please learn to deal with the trolls. Don't take the bait!

I will probably get hella trolled now, but I'm a honeybadger. This is a videogame and other people's opinions of my skill level or personal life are meaningless to me. (Unless of course it's my friends saying that, then I will probably cry so hawd...)

Not saying I'm coming out of retirement, because I'm not,
but how do you guys plan on (if anything) improving ddddodging? That's my question.
I say x3 counts of dodging is sentenced to testicular amputation.

Sorry for not answering in a timely manner. Currently, I have this concern addressed in the rules as such:

"The most difficult issue to address is the problem of “dodging”. I personally will not force one team to play another team, unless it’s the finals. I will play your team if you have an issue with other teams dodging you for whatever reason. I will not try to boost your points; however, I will play if no one else is playing your team. Plus, it is potentially a bad idea for a team to dodge your team. If that team makes it to the finals, then they have no practice against your team. It’s sort of burying your chances of winning against that team. Teams that are above average and show the passion to play do deserve to win, in my opinion. I will also match-make your team with other teams who claim to be dodged, if any. If not, again I will personally play you myself (and be a tryhard :P). I do not believe in free wins, and I hope the rest of the community has the same idea. Play fair and square, por favor."

TL;DR I will have my team play you and/or if there are other teams claiming to be dodged, they'll be matched against you.

Honestly, I know that's not a good enough answer for dodging problems. We will be discussing this issue on our podcast @ 10PM EST 2/14. I'd much rather the best teams go head to head in the regular season as it should be. Dodging is the main concern, as it's always been and as you know. In the past, I do not think I was right in meddling with people's teams to make them play another team. We might do a match-making system, but that's an idea tossed in the air. We should have a better answer when we cast tomorrow night.

Thank you for your interest! I would love to see your team come join our league if you could. I want to see some competition!

And what if women dodge you if that punishment gets enacted? o.o

I suppose we'll just take it up with you guys as it happens.
If I play.

Also in the matter of women, I suppose they have to go through the arduous process of having them grafted on and then subsequently removed following rule breakage. Bad day for vagina havers.

If you get a message just troll back or delete it. Please don't let a "get good" or "2EZ" message break you. Its a videogame people.

As far as dodging, its a videogame people. We are all here to PLAY.

^ Agreed,

Being someone who was harassed for a total of 3 seasons straight, I feel that if you cannot handle a simple troll then you are being sensitive, and need to stop. I got over the trolling, and I think it is counterproductive to feed into it. scratch But for some reason other people have a hard time using the block option xbox has provided you.

Like i've said before, we will handle extreme cases... but if a light tea bag to the forehead or a "2EZ" message hurts... maybe you should consider not playing COD, LFD, Gotham, Battlefield, or any other multi-player game.

Let us all just have fun... and enjoy this game while it is still crawling.
