Yes I've had. Many times. But I feel like you just learn to get over it because honestly, would I really want to waste my life away being a victim to some bully when I've got a humungous world in front of me with better things to see and do? So right, I wouldn't want to miss out on all that. One thing I learned is: you have to let these things go. If you keep living by them, you're only making your life miserable, and you'll continue to be miserable so long as it sticks in your head. So I say "F it" and try thinking of something else. Or doing something more productive that benefits me and makes me happy (like reading books and buying a bunch of Japanese sweets online lol!)

Nope, not even in rl

Learn how to fight and

just stop it before it gets out of control, like the first day they decide to pick on you. And then get an army of tough looking mates.

and for cyber bullying

You do know you don't HAVE to have social media right? And if you do, you HAVE to get thick-skinned and not be easily offended.

[edit]

Bonus if you get as hard core as Kaneki

Ah, yes. Being cyber bullied. I got insults from "you're ugly" to "you stink" to "kill yourself". They were anonymous too, so i never found out who they were.

Yea i have been on league of legends. The community is horrible and the worst part about it you would have to play with them for about 40 minutes. Multiple times I have been bullied on that game. Mostly its basically all my teammates ganging up on me and saying how bad I am and I cant walk away! I have to finish the game. I really love that game but i've had it with that game so I quit it just because of them. I know you could mute them but still their in basically every game i'm in and its getting really annoying.

Not really. I just get sometimes insulted by trolls on YouTube or when I play League of Legends.

I think I have, by some of the mods on another forum. One time my friends were online while it was happening so they quickly squashed it. Another time, I just stood up for myself and kind of started being annoying on purpose and then I got bored so I just stopped responding. I was never able to take it seriously.

Unfortunately, one of my friends ended up in some really deep stuff and it was not good for him. The guys cyber bullying him were really getting a kick out of it, and he was not the type to stand down and just ignore people. He eventually ended up staying away for a while, and it took some time for things to die down, but he eventually came back.

I understand how people can get caught up in it. My online life is like a second life to me, and when I'm not doing so great irl, the last thing I want is for someone to screw up my online life. Of course, now I'm much more indifferent to things than I used to be so I don't even notice things like that anymore.

Some people are HYPER sensitive towards bullying of all kinds. So some people get easily affected by insults on the internet the same way they would in off the internet. People want the internet to be peaceful yet it is not. Assholes won't stop being assholes regardless.

Cyber bullying is still bullying to those people.

I've noticed that too. Crunchyroll forums are usually, if not always, a very friendly community.

It's pretty much the case for every PvP game if the community is either large or unsupervised enough.

LoL stands out because the community is so huge and the MOBA genre isn't the forgiving to newcomers, or even just people having a bad night.

Riot does get some credit for not burrowing their head into the sand pretending that the problem doesn't exist.
I started playing online games in 1998 (Brood War) and sadly, cyber bullying was considered to be "normal Internet trashtalk".
The issue is that it took nearly 15 years for game companies, and players in general, to realize that it's not acceptable behavior.

It'll take more than just Riot Lyte and his team to reform the behavior of the Internet. But it's a step in the right direction.
