Pro XP - Playing with their emotions

Pro XP - Playing with their emotions

Written by: King DX on January 15, 2014.
Today I wanted to talk about a tactic that is used so much in online gaming that people forget that it has a strategic place. That tactic comes in various forms such as taunting, teabagging and the internets favorite word TROLLING. Trolling is a very valuable tool that a lot of players do without even knowing that their doing it. Getting into your opponents head and altering the way they play can be favorable for you. While I personally do not condone trolling I do accept that it is something that will not online happen to you in games but life as well.

Ignoring trolling or unsportsmanlike conduct is something you will need to learn to do. Emotions are real and different emotions can make changes in your behavior, these changes could cause you the game. Anger, anxiety and frustration are all real feelings that can be brought out by what some would consider childish behavior. My only question is how dumb could your opponent be if he just forced you to make a mistake and loss the game?

With that being said I would like to show you a bit of trolling that has been running around the internet today. No, the guy below isn't winning any prizes (probably not even rounds) but some people just enjoy being assholes. Hell I enjoyed watching it!
