  • Man Spends Six Months Plotting Murder of CSS Rival

    From Kotaku

    A Counter-Strike player in France has spent six months plotting a revenge attack against a man who beat him in an in-game knife fight. His eventual revenge was not in-game.

    20 year-old Julien Barreaux, from Cambrai, had his Counter-Strike character "knifed" in a game late last year against another man, known only as "Mikhael". Enraged at this blight against his talents, Barreaux spent six months tracking him down in the real world.

    When he eventually found the victim, Barreaux knocked on the guy's front door, then "plunged a kitchen knife into his chest" when Mikhael opened it to greet him. He missed his heart by an inch.

    A local police officer told the courts "Barreaux was arrested within the hour and told us he had wanted to see his rival wiped out for killing off his character."

    The judge, who locked him up for two years on a charge of causing grievous bodily harm, says of Barreaux, "You are a menace to society. I am frankly terrified of the disproportionate reaction you could have if someone looked at you the wrong way in the street."
    Obviously not a reflection on the gaming community at large (could be spun that way), but hey, there are crazy people everywhere.

    Just thought you guys might think this is interesting.

      But the guy only got 2 years in jail for attempted murder ?

      It is just another lesson in NOT giving out personal info on the internet.

          Dont necessarily have to. A clever person would start by getting the ip address. After that, pay 20 bucks on an IP address tracer site to give you an exact address. Truth be told, this psycho CSS stalker took about 5.75 months longer than he could have if he had been smart. Then again, stabbing someone in the chest with a kitchen knife for beating you at a CSS knife fight doesnt exactly imply intelligence. Either way, with todays technological standard, if you get online somewhere and someone is determined enough to track you down, no personal information is required.

                  There is an old trick call "backstrapping" where you run a phone line or in this case a cable line, from one house to another.

                      I mean if you trace my IP to a street address, it won't be MY address, it will be my neighbors.
