How to be a bastard

griefer gri:fõ_ noun
1) Someone, usually in an online game, who deliberately attempts to degrade another’s gaming experience.
2) Someone with more imagination than the rest...

Griefers are much maligned. Condemned as the playground bullies of the online world, they are in fact masters of innovation. Sure, there’s the sort of idiot who mindlessly crashes an online funeral, but what about the guy who figures out a way to ninja-style-kill a Battlefield pilot in midair? For every jerk who spawn-camps, there’s another who is healing the enemy when no one’s looking. These are the anarchists of gaming, taking the ingredients they’re given and making a cake no one was expecting. Jealous? You should be. So why not begin your career of adding imagination to multiplayer gaming today?
