I removed all my old asshole of the day/month posts a while back and did not plan to post them anymore. I felt it was simply drawing attention to the trolls and reflected negatively on the game; however, I changed my mind today.
This afternoon, during only my second match of the day, I met my demise at the had of a skillful skycancer named “The_Real_Jammer”.
I made a bad play, got tracked on a ridge, and several tanks hit me, the final kill shot came from an artillery hit that took about 32HP from my tank.
I signed, picked another tank and moved on with my day.
After my next battle, I noticed a message from another player and I had to go back a in the post battle results to find out which game it was from.
Here’s the text of the conversation:
“The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 12:28:46 PM) rekt
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:34:57 PM) congrats scumbag, you got 1 kill.
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:35:00 PM) feels good.
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:35:14 PM) and then you drowned yourself. special.
The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 12:37:28 PM) after I put you down like a sick mangy dog the game was over because my team mates failed.
The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 12:37:44 PM) But watching you go up in flames made it all worth it.
The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 12:37:49 PM) gg and better luck next time kiddo
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:42:37 PM) are you 12?
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:43:18 PM) Who sends messages after battle to brag about getting 32hp of damage and then drowns themselves?
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:44:01 PM) good job? I don’t know, you seem like you need some kind of validation. I guess I feel a little sorry for you.
(*my keyboard stopped working and I had to restart the client!!)
The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 12:48:11 PM) I took most of your hp son…I made you my bitch…deal with it.
The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 12:48:21 PM) You seriously rage too much over an online game beat down.
The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 12:48:25 PM) loser
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:52:18 PM) lol
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:52:35 PM) I’m not raging, I’m really curious why you think you need to send these messages after battle.
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:52:59 PM) I will be posting this conversation on my Tanks Blog, I’ve selected you as asshole of the month for November.
skagalak (11/17/2019 12:53:03 PM) Congrats!
The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 1:01:58 PM) haha…great and I am posting the bitch slapping I gave you on my youtube channel.
The_Real_Jammer (11/17/2019 1:02:08 PM) Thanks for the good material
skagalak (11/17/2019 1:02:39 PM) please share that one, I’m sure the ending with you drowning will be a big hit.”
I rarely send after battle messages myself. I don’t find my job in tormenting bad players. I do send congrats-type messages to teammates who carry the team or to an enemy player who played very, very well (win or lose).
But most of the time I just move on to the next match.
This guy, “The_Real_Jammer” seems to have some need to be a troll and I don’t have much time for trolls.
