It might just come back to hurt you....

Electronics and computer video game chat can cause trouble. Please watch what you say to people online. PC games are just that, games.

Mexico City, Mexico-(MH)-Mexican World of Warcraft player Bronco Carson reported to local police on Saturday that 3 men broke into his home and beat his arms with clubs and smashed his computer. It was supposedly in retaliation for Carson stalking and repeatedly killing one of the attackers wife’s character during computer video game play.

Carson admitted to police that he had been “making it hard for her to get far in the game.” He said that after repeated online threats from the woman, she sent her husband and friends over to his house to “take care of him.” Carson later said that he had made the mistake of telling her where he lived and “if her husband was man enough to just come meet me to settle this.”

2 weeks leading up to the assault he said he had been harassed by a few characters constantly during game play. “I knew that I might be messed with in the game but I didn’t really expect her husband to come looking for me. I couldn’t have been more wrong.”

Carson suffered 2 broken fingers and a fractured wrist during the assault. They also destroyed his computer and entertainment center before leaving. No arrests have been made in connection with the assault.

Carson should be Beat up daily just because he's a Gameing Ass that we all would love to take a Baseball bat to. I've met Hundreds of people That think its fun messing up peoples Games and would love to tie them to a chair while they watch a 20 Pound Sludge Hammer Destroy There Comps.
If Carson in any way can see this post All I have to say to him is.
"HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA" too bad they didn't break both your Arms instead of just a couple of fingers.
Remember these are just games so don't get too upset
when you get your ass handed to you in a hat box

Careful, if you beat someone in DoTA. That someone will come and beat you up in real life.

That's quality

I must admit, some of the comments are great:

I wonder if those orcs collected any gold and how much xp they gained from the raid.
if it took 3 people to down him, i bet he played a warlock.

I play Horde. If there are allys about, I'll kill them. I don't repeatedly gank or corpse camp, but the game is played like a war. So if I see a level 20 ally, I won't hesitate to one shot him.

Horde vs Alliance. It's a war, so I play it like one.
