Ok seen like that I guess it could be considered a major offense. I was being a little short sighted I guess. Besides, we all know what the first thing these idiots are gonna do when they eventually log in again....grief more.

I'm just generally into giving people a second chance. Maybe that's not the way to go here, I dunno.

So let me get straight what you're saying here.

If someone gets griefed but doesn't know how to adequately react to it, for example because they aren't so experienced and educationally and intellectually superior as yourself, they cease to be victims.

That is some pretty warped logic there. In fact, it's griefer and borderline psychopathic logic in itself: "If they can't defend themselves it's OK", is what you're saying here.

Players who are pestered by other players, for the sole reason that those people (like the makers of the video) enjoy seeing others suffer or because they are after some form of internet infamy, are victims regardless of their ability to fight back.

 

Now, one could argue that the game in question is a welcome haven for that kind of behaviour in the first place. Except the fact that the terms of service for the game and the fact that the offenders in question did get banned, objectively suggests otherwise.

 

In my opinion, these kinds of people are attention whores. They're probably snickering behind their screens at all the reactions they're getting.

Only solution is to ignore them and dish out permabans for further offensive behaviour.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

What did you people expect from pure pvp game, you'll always have to deal with hacking, trolling and greiffing.

If you think baning payers is the option, you're dead wrong, simply, change game mechanics which alow greiffers to greif, so they couln't greif.

This Article is realy over blowing the effects these idiots are actually cabable of.

 

I recall in DF1.0 they came and made some posts about how they were going to drive people away and all this nonsense.

I never saw them in game or heard of anyone who did and they stopped posting in about two weeks.

 

It seems like that is all they do.  They try and make a forum presence, annoy a few people, get some attention, then they leave.

 

If they stay at it AV will just perma ban them and people like this don't have the money to keep buying accounts and getting banned over and over.

 

They are really nothing and make no impact on anything.

It wasn't worth bringing them up to just give them some attention that they are looking for.

 

Basically, you just brought up a nat that you chased out of your house.....not really worth mentioning..

Wouldn't it be interesting if cyber-bullying ended up being a federal offense punishable by jail time (which should and will happen) and in-game griefers potentially could be charged under the same premise.

Interesting? More like pathetic... So called "cyber bullying" is typical of a certain nanny state mentality.  Its only words on a screen.  They have no more import than what one assigns to them.   Getting Mordor on the Potomac involved, is a VERY bad idea.

That having been said, they should have perma banned those clowns.   They went WAY out of their way to ruin other players game experience.  Not only that, they recorded it and then posted it online.  Thats bad for a games reputation, and its business model.

If they were playing ffa sandbox they would be dead in few minutes.

 

So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.

*wry grin.  Gotta admit this is the most entertainment I have had in a while.  It is amazing how low some griefers will sink to visit misery on other people.  Griefing in a safe zone OMG! Lol.

Seems some of these people getting their kicks out of bullying people online as one stated above are real cowards, Internet tough guys that most likely have a hard life or never grew up in the first place, let alone have any real responsibilities ect. I watched the video and to be honest I am not surprised,. For one, that is starting to be the norm in a lot of mmos now adays and I think it's sad, I would KILL to play online games with people who are talkative, respectful and polite, but that's not going to happen, so what I do is ignore general chat on most mmos and don't say a word only to those few I deem my friends. Back in the EQ days the community was amazing , I've spoke to a lot of very friendly people, respectful people and whom we all enjoyed the company of the others and got quests done, most of us met in real life and formed strong friendships, now, it's more then likely you would like to find these rude littles pricks and beat the snot outta them. I find it sad that people have to treat others like that poor person playing the game and trying to fish, just pisses me the right off!

Well said.  I'm not sure which is a 'sadder' state of affairs - two fools annoying / "griefing" a person who is harvesting, or actually then talking over those same pathetic actions and posting it to YouTube.  They are obviously very proud of themselves, and perhaps they can have a chat about it while they wait for the first-period bell to ring...children.

Ok excuse my newb-ness. I'm new to open PVP games. But why is it that open pvp (with full loot, I guess) have to equal griefing? I read the thread linked to in the article and people keep saying it over and over. The only PVP games that I have experience with is Salem and Age of Wushu and I just started playing those. What I get from those games is to "learn how to fight and defend your self when needed" and "don't sweat getting killed; its just part of the game." I guess since this type of game is pretty new to me, I just don't see how griefing - especially when you have to go out of your way to do so - has to be a part of it.

This griefing specifically had nothing to do with PVP.

They chose to make sure and do it where someone couldn't kill him/them , as is there usual way.

 

HOGG is know for being pansies , runners , and all around not very good.

Not a fan of Goons etc , but they are nothing to be compared as they still actually fight.

If you google HOGG and specifically the poster of the video , you can find people making fun of him and them for years on the AoC forums and other places.

The other guilds in DF want to actually PVP , whether they are annoying or ganking or whatever , but HOGG only wants to do things where they cant be killed as they are really , really not very good at actual gameplay.

While it is pitiful that these guys went to the lengths they did, it is FAR MORE pitiful that people make such asinine comments as to suggest that "cyber-bullying" be a federal offense.

 

Wow..

 

This is why children now are afraid of any and everything.  This is why humanity is going down hill.  Everyone is wussified so much that they would rather shelter everyone than teach them coping skills.  Yes...they were in the wrong, but you seriously don't think the guy swearing at the "griefers" was equally at wrong?  He handled the situation poorly as well.

 

In so many ways, minus technology, the 50s were better.  Men were men...women were women and people would tell you to get thicker skin if you were crying over something stupid.  Now, instead of coping skills we teach apathy and sheltering, so kids end up imploding one day leaving x amount dead at y event/location.

Yet in the 50's women were treated unfairly, so many people couldn't stand up for what they believe in because it was the norm back then.

While I will say yes having a thicker skin does indeed help,. But that does not correct the problem , it makes it worse. It's time that people like these griefers get disciplined , no way is it the fault of the people getting griefed.

People who choose to act like that are simply not happy with their lives so they take it on others to make them feel good. These "griefers" are probably the same type of people that course others into committing suicide and that mentality needs to change with the extreme cases of jail time.

The guys who made this video need a ip ban from this game and in all rights should be black listed from other games as well,. We don't need this "type" in the games , activities we enjoy, simple as that.

No...simple psychology (101 even) would enlighten you to the fact that they're just wanting a reaction.  The kid in the film was reacting...over and over and over and over.  Giving them the reinforcement that they were doing what they intended.  If you don't throw them the bone, they don't get their reward and they get bored and go do something else or (try) to harrass someone else.  It's only because people buy into it that they continue.

 

Now...is it likely that everyone will be able to ignore them?  No...sadly humanity is weak-willed as a whole and therefore they react easily.

Actually cyber-bullying is a real problem causing suicides in teens from having their photos and such passed among social media.  This IS a real problem, and there is a very large percentage of people wanting legal ability to prosecute the people who perform these types of crimes. 

I recognize the difference between griefing and cyberbullying but there is going to be legislation and if it put griefers into hot water, well, I probably wouldn't care.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

Cirin, I agree with you on the " throwing the bone bit" but man, a line HAS to be drawn, and like it or not these things will get worse if it is not dealt with.

In the old days if a bully was harassing me I would beat the crap outta him and the issue would be resolved, but since this is on the Internet, ignoring the problem will not work, it might in some case but of the 90% of them out there it won't work.

The people causing these sorts of problems need to be know. To local authorities in their resident area, that will correct the problem in most cases, do a similar law were they track sexual predators.

The temp ban of this guild almost makes me think AV is interested in actually making money instead of providing a litterbox for jerks to grief each other in until the servers shut down due to all the actual paying players quitting.

Only an innocent newbie of online games could not imagine that games like Darkfall would not have a ton of trolls, flamers, griefers, stalkers, etc; usually games like this one gather around itself the most elitist and unwanted people; i am glad to Darkfall for to exist because from now all these bad people can go to ruin the fun each other in this game instead to wander around in other games.

From the time of UO, full loot means a lot of of things and 90% of them are not positive, good luck to the moderators of Darkfall, i for sure don't be jealous of their work!

My challenge to a HOGG member.. Want to exert your "dominance" on the world? Ready to show us all who's really the BOSS HOGG? You guys should make videos in like a big city walking around and randomly calling people "gimps" as you try and interrupt what they are doing..

You know, that guy lifting weights trying to pump out those real life prowess points, go ahead and stand in front of him and pull his weights from him while calling him a gimp.. Show us how it's really done..

The internet just isn't hardcore enough, you guys need a bigger arena... Get famous..

sillynannies..

I actually remember seeing an old video of these guys doing the exact same thing in WoW I cant even remember how many years ago. I thought it funny to myself that these guys thought themselves witty at all in their attempts at what they called griefing. I've been in numerous games with similar functions such as the line of sight where players can cause a player to get frustrated from just simple things like this. I think the guys that are in hogg or whatever the hell they call themselves need some serious mental therapy. I swear these guys have the IQ of 4 year olds fighting over a piece of candy. I guess they just really want attention of some kind I mean they probably see this article even and feel proud of themselves that someone out in the interwebs giving mention to them but hey what can you expect when dealing with people with a lower IQ average than the excrement I flush down the tiolette.
