A French gamer spent 7-months hunting down another Counter-Strike player so he could stab him in real life after the guy killed him during an in-game knife fight. Geez, somebody's high school guidance counselor didn't do their job!
Julien Barreaux, 20, told police he wanted to see his rival player "wiped out" after his character in the game Counter-Strike died in a virtual knife fight.
A court in Cambrai, northern France, heard how Barreaux plotted revenge for seven months after the online "killing" last November.
He then located the victim, named only as Mikhael, several miles from his home.
When the man answered the door, he plunged a kitchen knife into his chest, missing his heart by less than an inch, a police officer told the court.
Barreaux was jailed for two years for causing grievous bodily harm, and ordered to undergo psychiatric tests and anger management therapy.
What. The. F***?! I'm gonna have to seriously think twice before pwning noobs in the future. The last thing I need is some crazy showing up at my door trying to stab me. Because I'd have no choice but to cut his head off WITH MY PEENER. I'm talking penicular manslaughter, folks. First time I got six years.
Thanks to melissa and Salazar, who would have stabbed the wanker with his own knife and kicked him down the stairs.
