  • 45-Year-Old Man Arrested for Threatening an 11-Year-Old Fortnite Player - MMORPG.com

    Few thoughts from a rational critical thinking person.

    1) let's stop the "but the poor children" act turns out children can be just as evil as an adult a quick google will educate you on the numerous crimes even murder committed by kids even younger than 11. Do another search on the number of kids driven to suicide by other kids relentless bullying as just another example of those harmless poor 11 years olds /rollseyes.

    2) Lets stop the "45 year old picking on the 11 year old" because I am fairly certain there is no way the old guy could truly know the kids actual age over x-box chat right? Yeah we call that critical thinking instead of emotional knee jerk response.

    3) A reasonable thoughtful person would defend neither party and instead identify that ALL parties involved are examples of what went wrong. Starting with the irresponsible parents who use the x-box as a cheap babysitter to relieve themselves of actually being a responsible parent, the obnoxious child who gets his kicks out of anonymously being a D-bag on the internet, and the out of control 45 year old man who seems to have ZERO self control raging to the point of threatening to murder a person over taunting words from a random stranger.

    None of this is defensible yet most of you managed to defend or deflect responsibility on at least one party. Maybe reflect on that.

    you guys dont actually understand the idea of a game, do ya?



    do you cry every time a new shooter is released? wolfenstein already came out over 20 years ago, and people still "join the bandwagon".



    get over it, game types are not unique.


    That's not at all the same. Wolfenstein has hand-crafted PvE content for each title.  It isn't just the same content relaunched.

    Battle royales games are merely the game mode and PvP.  They aren't unique enough from one another in terms of content to warrant having so many.



    Uhm no its the EXACT same lol. Each new BR is a handcrafted PVP content. Its the same things, infact games like PUBG are just clones of old FPS games with a really minor tweek a shrinking play area and no respawn.

    Atleast this is a twist on the gameplay which is something different and might prove to be more fun to people who prefer a moba style combat but also like the format of a BR pvp mode.

    so it means we dont get force freiend whit gey or lesbo quests so game be political corect





    Because those things don't happen in real life or aren't part of the world's culture. Gotcha. *facepalms*



    Cuz like an issue that affects 3% of the worlds population should be pounded down our throats pretending it is mainstream and a pressing issue for the world? KEK /rollseyes. I certainly agree that more freedom of the dev's choices of story to be told would be great, as opposed to the tiresome usual predictable SJW status we have now. Hey look another brown female character being the boss of white peons as they battle another white evil man hungry for power /yawn.

    None of them should have been fired, they HAVE THE FUCKING RIGHT to think / and say WHATEVER they want in their FREE TIME, if they did something illegal, or disrecpectfull, you can report tweet on twitter or give your lawyer a call

    They got fired, i hope they'll sure ArenaNet, America is fucked up
    I think most of us would agree with you, unfortunately its the wacko leftists who started these witch hunts demanding people be fired for saying things they deemed "insensitive". you are late to the game and its been a one sided hackfest with all the PC lefties constantly demanding people be fired finally one of their own has been axed for it and they lost their mind.

    Its a really sick state of affairs in the west right now primarily because of these zealots on the left, luckily i think they have gone so far that people are starting to rebel. I can name you 20 people who lost their jobs who said things on twitter/facebook not even on work accounts because the left activists.

    So please aim your rhetoric at the people responsible for this atmosphere.

    You know, that is interesting that you brought up gamergate (I wasn't aware of it until years). One of the /r/guildwars2 threads I was reading there was a person questioning whether gamergate was right on its assessment regarding gaming press, considering how falsely and on a script the whole situation with guildwars2 is portrait.

    Gaming press has indeed lost considerable relevance over the years, exactly because they chose to push ideology over the facts.

    The reaction towards both your editorial pieces should be an indication on how people that are not necessarily invested in Anet feel. The same contrast is there between the reaction of Guildwars2 players and the gaming press.

    The bottom line was that the CEO of Anet had to choose between appeasing the players or the press. I think he made the right choice, but time will tell.
    I didn't write that. I simply posted quotes from the link provided in the response I made. It's an interesting side light to the overall discussion. The people who wrote that article are not games press. 

    I don't have an opinion so let's not sling shade please. It's been a very reasonable discussion and I hope it stays that way. 

    @mmrv Again - I did NOT write that, simply provided a link and two quotes from the larger piece. Keep it civil, please.
    The problem is that the article that you provided was yet another biased and poorly researched outside perspective of the situation which pushes the same incorrect narrative that these threads have attempted to push in their OP's. 

    If you had wanted an actual neutral, comprehensive, level-headed analysis of the situation, you would have linked Woodenpotatoes' 57 minute video on the topic.
    I wasn't LOOKING for a neutral, unbiased article. I posted the link to yet another piece of the puzzle that has interesting discussion opportunities within its words. I like to read all sides of any argument. That makes me informed.

    Just stop.
    You didn't provide a piece of the puzzle you provided a deceptive pile of misinformation that was written in her defense yet oddly enough it actually condemned the exact behavior she displayed. Its mind boggling how they managed to twist the issue in the article to try to portray her as the victim when she actually was the toxic online personality they condemn.
