But yeah, when you get trolled, how do you handle it, do you go toe to toe, ignore them, or fight back with random non sequiturs, I knew one guy that started being polite using his native tongue and someone got mad at him and he was like "all I said was thank you for the advice" but he said it in Russian (forgot how to say the phrase).

Your methods for trolls, how do?


As a frequent LoL troller (trolling Silver 3 games ... just so awesome. They're really serious @ that rank), I can say that a troll's only goal is to elicit negative emotions from their targets. (why do I do it? because it's kinda a refined skill. Rito bans people who are toxic, intentionally feed, etc. etc. So to be able to intentionally lose games or rage at your team /without/ being toxic or intentionally feed takes some major major skill :D. It's like a game inside a game! It's a guilty pleasure and I really should stop but... YOU KNOW!)

What really peeves me is when I troll so hard, but get no reaction from my team. It's just frustrating :D. So the best thing to do is actually walk away, keep quiet, or become even more polite to a troll. Even though they don't show it or ramp up their efforts the truth is, they're really PO'd!

maybe it's just me but I just wish it was easy for people to just say "hey, I'm an not so cordial person and I intend to irritate you with no provocation whatsoever". I mean, you'd think that with it being 2015, people could just admit that now'days.

Ignore them. They always win if they get attention

I don't really see anything wrong with them or getting trolled, just a trickster behind a keyboard who seeks a conversation or just wants to play around. Sometimes it's fun to play around or sometimes I'm not up for it so I don't participate. There is value in a troll, or rather something to be seen, something to be learned about the human condition.


Bro... that's deep.
