Some people have no humor I guess, I just made a light hearted comment because this player's name has the word funk in it and references a famous Funk band. 

At first I thought he was just joking but he actually gave me bad karma... lots of angry people today in chat, kinda scary to think that's the world we are living.

I had something similar happen to me. 

It had to do with the name too.

I say don't have an interesting name and then get bent out of shape when someone notices.

Let me guess...it was Funkadelic?

They probably just disagree with you on something on the forum. Probably your sub support. 

Ive run into a few players like that.

I've met in Battle guys that disagree with me here, but usually we joke about it and have a good time. Knowing someone from the Forum give both of us a common ground, it is a shame some guys can't get pass having different opinions...

It's the tribal instinct that has been resurfacing lately.

Tribe is more important that truth.

ArIskander a bad player…

Let me check noodle translate.

Ah…

ArIskander didn’t play the way I wanted, so I look good, therefore ArIskander is a bad player.

It was interesting because it was right out of the gate, like the first thing that was said in chat... I didn't even had the chance to dissapoint no one :Smile_amazed:

I too have been randomly told that I “suck” by someone in game, completely out of the blue. I can only assume it had to do with something I said in these forums in response to said player’s typical :etc_swear:stirring.

I just rolled by eyes and moved on.

Maybe he was referencing your puns,?

Clearly his definition of bad and mine are worlds apart.

Strangely enough, some people get upset when a person repeatedly ridicules the name they have chosen.

Yeah I played a couple of games with & against this guy, seems he has anger issues. Started 1 match laying into player on opposite team for being a crap player, only to get sunk early while the red player went on to about 2nd or 3rd in his (winning) team.

My name came from when I was in the Navy. My brother sent a letter to my barracks with the correct room number but addressed to "Admiral Swervenkill". It rhymed with my name so was pretty funny but apparently the barracks petty officer didn't think so because he sent it back.

Ridicule? Why a person would think that? ... it is not meant to ridicule the player, It's being playful. 

A few days ago I shared a match with a player named Grabthar, first thing I do of course is to type on chat "by Grabthar's hammer!", The guy answers "what a savings"... We all laughed and had a fun time. It works like that, it isn't intended to ridicule. 

If your IGN references some common cultural knowledge, you shouldn't be surprised if people echoes that.

I admit I've been curious about your name.
Thanks for sharing the story.  It's much better than my hypotheses ever were.  :Smile_teethhappy:

Your idea of being playful is not everyone else idea of playful.

Just like your love of Pig Boats is not indicative of what other's love.

In fact one could construe this thread as a drama thread looking for attention. I am sure this is not your intent BUT not everyone is you and see's things your way.

You poked and poked and poked and got a response, what did you expect in PvP?

It is looking to be funny. A lot of interesting, weird and funny situations happens during matches, I'm sharing with fellow players in the same vein you go to drink some beers after a sports game with your team mates and recap and laugh about moments in the match.

Poked? really? how sensitive one needs to be to think like that? ... It isn't like I expect anything, I just found the reaction funny enough to share it.
