The perpetrator obviously has some deep underlying mental issues.

World of Warcraft is just his conduit to display his instability. If it wasn't this particular game, it would have been a road rage incident or something else that would have set him off.

Stabber needs to get a better dagger - not enough melee damage.

1 pennies = copper
1 dollar = silver
100 dollars = 1 gold.

Mages don't heal, noob. Priests, Druids, Shaman, or *snicker* Paladins.

The real news here is that a Warcraft addict was physically capable of moving fast enough to stab that skinny dude. Maybe he hid the knife in his bag of Doritos.
 
2012-07-12 07:41:58 PM  
He was stabbed, not hit with a hammer.
Leroy Jenkins was a paladin, n00bmitter.

There are pics & video online of the cops making the arrest.

the more you immerse yourself in the la-la land of virtual stupidity the more it grows on you. balance is a vitally important factor in life. be a well rounded individual. fanaticism is a terribly dangerous thing no matter what the subject matter is.

-- my niece in PA knows a family that was destroyed because the husband/dad lost it on video games. would not stop. lost his freakin' job, their house, and the wife took the kids and left him. poor stupid bastard.

Ha, no. Only videogames would make a man this violent. Why, before videogames, there was no violence in the world, ever.

Good thing Canada has very strict laws on owning handguns. After all, if you take away the handguns then the violence goes away!

subby - what does that have to do with Leroy Jenkis? He wiped a raid by abruptly yelling out his name and pulling the mobs when the raid wasn't ready. He didn't attack his guild directly - the mobs killed them. This guy attacked his neighbor directly.

A CoD rager would've been sputtering derp and teabagging the body when the cops showed up.

A League of Legends rager would've done the same as WoW assaulter, then ragequit halfway through the stabbing.

An EVE Online player would've stabbed him, took some of his belongings, then repeat until nothing was left.

F--k dealing with the ultra serious business crowd -- reason I like single player games or compstomp with teammates options. In League of Legends I started off 9-60 in regular games, then zoomed up to a winning record by more than 60 games over .500 after I found toons that suited my style. But I gave up playing PvP in that game because the ragers were just getting on my nerves even in VICTORIES. As in WoW, some people don't get that shiat happens and you can't win them all. And no, you are not likely destined to be playing professionally against South Korea's best anytime soon.

If he'd have just went,

Stealth / Premeditation / Shadowstep / Ambush / Rupture / Backstab / Backstab / Vanish,

he'd have probably gotten away with it.

I encounter a guy like that in every other random BG I run. :-(

You can't reason with a person like that. They are mentally unstable and should really be seeking professional help or institutionalized. They're usually extremely sexist, misogynistic, bigoted, and incapable of being calm or seeing reason.

They also hate it when you tell them "I truly hope you're not breeding."

But if there wasn't video games for these sad folks, what would they be doing? Being serial killers? Going postal? I shudder to think. I hope this man gets the psychological treatment he so desperately needs.

It's legit, he opened with a garrotte, hit hemo a few times and finished with a four point evisc. Anything more might pull aggro off the tank!

He's lucky he didn't get stabbed in the back for an instant kill.
