Today I found that trolling still goes on despite friendly fire off being on. The troll will fire so as to get spotted, then move behind you so the enemy fires at them but hit you. I decided to shoot near the troll with HE as a lessen and you can be critical of that, but I really hate bullies like these trolls since junior school. I will always punch back because these people ALWAYS get away with it until punished hard in my personal experience!

 

I can only hope the troll will have learned not to troll but I doubt it.

I'd be careful tho.

 

Remember the golden phrase: don't feed the troll

News flash, thing that's always happened continues to happen, film at 11. :mellow:

 

Besides, FF is active until 1.6, which will probably arrive on Thursday so I'm not sure what you mean by FF "off being on".

I think it's definitely a step in the right direction (regarding countering trolls). I doubt the things you describe will happen that often since I can't recall that happening to me.

So nice of you to give others advice on how to best troll others. Wouldn't these people get banned, if they troll this way - or maybe you happen to know that they are unlikely to?

 

The plot thickens.

Wonder what sort of player causes these things. It's not the first time I've heard about these things happening, but it's always through a certain kind of forum post we hear these tales - ain't I right?

It a real life person causing social and dysfunctions.

 

I think I'm normal as I just want to play and be left alone to do my own thing.

 

But I'm finding the blamer who just go on how everyone must report you for not winning the battle, or the troll that pushes you out of cover, or shots to be seen and hides behind you is the child that's been getting away with this since junior school.

 

I really would like a better way to deal with them, but until there is standing up and punching back is my only solution that's worked.

The occasional troll you described I encounter less than the below average Tomato's that seem to under perform deliberately each game....

A good way to not be trolled in battle is playing well, or at least visibly show that you try to win.

It's too tempting, and easy, to retaliate at trolling players, but long term it's probably best to just move off and leave them to their selfish tomfoolery :)

 

I'm glad someone else said FF is still active, as I thought it wasn't until 1.6 that it was disabled too! 

 

The tactic of firing behind someone to get them hit when they're unspotted isn't a new one either, best bet is still to just move away, once they've fired you're going to get all the love arty can place in that map positon anyway :) :arta:

Every time you end up on a  team that team gets trolled simply by your presence.

Like most humans I am happy to make suggestions sometimes. Up to them if the accept them or not, I'm not here to force them by pushing orshooting them if they are just doing their own thing.

 

You seem to think its ok to bully others to do what you want by your bringing it up and accusing me of it. thats called projection. It might explain why you not have (or your fans) a solution to prevent it?

Why blame the victem when hiding the perpretators.
