Lol that is a lot of what is said in the game.
You are a prime example .
Why would you say such hateful thing's?
I nor anyone i know goes around raping people and stealing home's.
and yes i am my country..
But just cause OUR GOVERNMENT does stuff you don't like doesn't mien you take it out on every United sates citizen.
I must be old fashioned cause if i ever said talked to people this way growing up i would have got backhanded.
What would this guy's post have to do with a video game?
Because i am a American citizen i have no right to speak...cause of what my government does.
well good day.
and i am glad i brought a little of the League of legend community with me to flame the thread lol
God it is a game not to be used as a political tool.

I should have been a bit clearer. Talking "smack" is a time honored tradition in all games, not just on line. It's when it becomes impersonal over the internet that it can take a turn for the malicious.

I pulled the plug on the online and multiplayer chat games real quick in my house. Sure there were some things as are mentioned in the OP.. but the things I heard grown men saying to my daughter made my hair stand on end. More perving on there than playing or terrorizing IMO. Blech..
Anonymity on these games gives the pervs a great open door into your home.. and access to your kids. I have 17, 12, and 5 yr old girls. The things I read that people say to them ( not the 5 yr old yet) everywhere online is really proof that female children have a huge target on their foreheads and the adult men are pretty gross and bold since they THINK they are anonymous. Scary stuff. Since this is just what they have in theri heads even if they arent hidden behind a computer, Ive used some of it as a teaching experience for the girls.. how to deal with the pervs they will encounter in real life. WHen your 17 yr old realizes the guy that just said some seriously raunchy crap to them could be their neighbor or the nice teacher at school... it teaches them to be wary, observe, and be on guard against what lurks in the mids of "normal" folks.
I wont even get into the garbage on myspace and facebook between children and adults, between the kids themselves, or between enemies. Its a brave new world out there that my generation didnt have to deal with and develop skills for.
