In Defense of Teabagging

Karl explains why teabagging isn't such a bad thing after all. (Halo 4, PS3, Xbox 360)

At the risk of offending everyone who believes that emulating the act of putting your testicles in an opponent's mouth shortly after killing them is "cool" or "hilarious", tea-bagging is in my view exactly as the author describes in his opening paragraph: "synonymous with immaturity". When it happens to me I don't think "he's so awesome" or "I must teabag him back!"; I wonder how on Earth people could find such a thing so funny...

I wish developers would just put a celebration system into games that are more classy so people would stop tea-bagging like idiots. The "Victory Dance" mechanic from the SOCOM series is a nice example of this. (plus doing a moonwalk to a spin and crotch grab is way more cool!)

Ditto. As 'bloodybutcher' says, Naughty Dog did it right with Uncharted 3.

Tea-bagging, while immature is an excellent strategy.

Most gamers are very competitive, and get worked up quite easily when humiliated by a t-bag/tea-bag.

Following that general rule, I will T-bag someone, and when they are angry the let their gaurd down. They will run to the same spot you killed them (if you are camping lets say), which givess you the opportunity to ambush them from elsewhere (observing the previous kill-spot from a new spot).

One things for certain, it does get to me sometimes lol.

For the most part I have noticed people would do that anyway even if you don't teabag. They don't really have a penalty for death other than a number on their statsheet so they just run out to the same spot and die again. I dislike respawn shooters because the player base becomes dumb and predictable.
