We all know that person, the one that thinks it’s funny to disrupt your roleplaying with immersion-breaking nonsense. He’s the one that will walk into a room and scream something about genitals before running away. He’s the guy that does it for the lulz. Many free MMORPGs and pay-to-play games alike suffer the wrath of these inconsiderate (and likely sexually-frustrated) jerks, otherwise known as trolls.

So what can you do about it? Well, there’s not much by way of instant gratification with trolls. It takes a few incidents reported over time to get satisfaction. But that’s just it, it has to be reported. Copy the incident in question into a notepad file and go through whatever your chosen game’s process is to report that person.

Some people just let it go as general idiocy, which is fine to a point. Generally speaking, if no one reacts (do not feed the trolls) the moron will get bored with the game and go away. But for those persistent enough to stick around, feel free to report them.

This is very important!

***DO NOT TELL THE IDIOT YOU’RE GOING TO REPORT HIM, JUST DO IT!***

This is very important!

Trolls feed off the negative attention they cause, don’t give them satisfaction. Keep a cool head and just report them without saying a word. Don’t get mad, get even, as the old saying goes. Encourage your friends to do the same.

That’s all for this one. It’s a bit short, but it’s solid advice for dealing with idiots. Be patient; keep a cool head and report. All free MMORPGs especially get hit by these morons and it can ruin a community for people. The top MUD I play is carefully moderated by people who care about your in-game experience, so I’m lucky in this way.

If you haven’t tried an Iron Realms game, what’s stopping you? They’re free to play and can be played as browser games as well as with third-party client software.
