Do you think Trolls Ruin Your Gaming Experience

Trolls, you can find them in almost every online multiplayer game out there these days. They can be funny but, at times they can be rather annoying. Gamers who prefer to concentrate on the objective are usually interrupted by trollish behavior which is typically fed by rage. This trolling usually fails but can easily interrupt a gaming session which disrupts the community and the legitimate players within it. (PC, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox)

aslong as it's the enemies that are trolling, i don't mind.

Call of Duty has forced gamers to mute millions of people and to create good friends lists. I think they do have some impact.

There needs to be more accountability going forward.

They don't in games, but often times they do ruin the experience on the Wii U section of N4G.

I stopped gaming online for the most part so yes and no depending how you look at it

i wonder if all these trolling will stop once you have your REAL name on your profile and then your Alias Below your real name just like on the ps4. they should have a policy that if your real name is fake you could get console banned for that so that people will troll less online.

Trollers gonna troll

People calling for console-bans for trolling are the reason why people do it. They're in it for the reaction and until trolling is outlawed in the terms of service in all online games, then people will still do it. Getting reactions from people spurs the trolls on and I, myself find overreactions over video games highly amusing. Yeah, it can be annoying when you're on a good run and a teammate comes up and pops your face, or having a good lap on F1 and you're punted off the track and on to a fence, but what are the consequences once that game is over? A slight statistical difference on a web page with no real value. So what?

- Although I question the authenticity of this video (Voices change drastically for the same player, mic icons aren't active, etc), reactions such as this are hilarious.

Ironic to see a article about Trolls on n4G, the site is full of them unfortunately.

Very few people that make very insightful and well thought out comments.

Those people deserve all the bubbles:)

Trolling is as much abuse as anything else, digital or real life. They should both be taken seriously, just one less than the other :P

There will eventually be a Fine system for this:)

I somewhat disagree, master troll posts can be quite entertaining. Its rare but it does keep you on your toes.

Master troll is a myth. Any good post goes under witty or funny.

Trolling is the act of annoying, if done in good taste then it's no longer trolling it becomes entertaining...which is opposed trolling which is meant to cause chaos.

I whole heartily disagree:)

I been studying trolls for a while I never realized how it was until I came onto this site. I don't mind them like other people do because I'm a grown ass man myself. The best way to deal with them is not to. Somebody trolls online don't respond. They do it in a game delete them. It's like in school the class clown is acting up to garner attention. Listen to him and you can't learn.

They do for the a server I may be in. Most of the the time I have a laugh which usually works on the mic because it usually ends with:

A. They give up because they see that I am not getting upset.
B. Laugh themselves then ask why I am cool with being team-killed/failed the objective which usually ends with a funny conversation.

I have two or three friends on my list who were trolls.
