what exactly is a games troll

  KEITH 1955 22:58 12 May 2019

I am puzzled I have been a gamer since 1982 and recently I have been called a game troll. It all started a few days ago when I decided to try out dota2. Obviously I made mistakes and got swore at a lot because dota2 players don't seem to like noobs. Next I got a lot of players saying I was a game troll. I always thought a troll was a person who targeted anyone in real life and was the equivalent of a stalker on the street.

I am currently suspended to the lowest rank for 10 games and I don't even know what I did wrong.

Dota is deep, and constantly evolving, but it's never too late to join. Learn the ropes playing co-op vs. bots. Sharpen your skills in the hero demo mode. Jump into the behavior- and skill-based matchmaking system that ensures you'll be matched with the right players each game.

Seems you didn't get enough practice and you're trying to play above your skill-set :(

Them referring to you as a Game troll means that your performance was so bad they assumed it was a wind-up.

This happens often in online gaming nowadays quite often.

Getting any game later than a few months after release means that you're going to have an incredibly steep learning curve ahead of you. The longer you wait after a game's release the harder time you may have joining the "community."

I have heard bad things about the DOTA playing community before. Games are something to do for fun so, if the other players are that bad, just leave them to it. Find a game where the players are more reasonable, or stick to solo games. BTW, I find the community tends to be much better in the MMORPGs I favour playing.
