What is griefing well from wikipedia [quote]A griefer is a player who does things in a game to deliberately cause annoyance ("grief" in the sense of "giving someone grief") with the intent of deriving pleasure primarily or exclusively from the act of causing another player grief. Such a player is a particular nuisance in online gaming communities, since griefers often cannot be deterred by penalties related to in-game goals. Exact griefing methods differ from game to game, an act of griefing in an area of one game may be an intended function or mechanic of another game or the same game in another "area." Common methods may include but are not exclusive to: Player killing in games that do not have separate areas, or an option, to keep those who want this type of gameplay from attacking those who do not. This does not include games that are designed with constant player combat in mind. Intentional friendly fire or deliberately performing actions detrimental to team members' game performance, including wasting key game elements and colluding with the opposition for the primary or exclusive purpose of causing grief to team members and deriving pleasure from that act rather than deriving some benefit.(referred to as "ghosting") Any methods of reversing another player's progress for the primary or exclusive purpose of causing grief to team members and deriving pleasure from that act rather than deriving some benefit. (such as randomly destroying other players' creations in Minecraft or Terraria) Written and/or verbal insults, false accusations of cheating/griefing Stealing other players' items and/or experience (when done for the purpose of harassment, not self-gain) Spamming when done with an element of intent to bother other players rather than derive some benefit. Camping at a corpse or area to kill someone as soon as they resurrect when done for the sole purpose of causing grief to another player or players. Acting out-of-character in a role-play setting when done with the intent of harming of disrupting the game play of others. Luring many monsters or one big one to chase the griefer and then rushing to where others are (kiting), for the purpose of getting other people killed by this surprise mass of monsters. The line of monsters in pursuit looks like a train, and hence this is sometimes called "training". Blocking another player's way so they cannot move or get out of a particular area, or access an in-game resource (such as a non-player character) for the purpose of harming that player without deriving any benefit from the act Deliberately blocking shots from your own team or blocking a player's view by standing in front of them so they can not damage the enemy with the sole purpose of harming your own team, rather than deriving a benefit from doing so. The term is sometimes applied more generally to mean a person who uses the internet to cause distress to others as a prank,or to intentionally inflict harm, as when it was used to describe an incident in March 2008, when malicious users posted seizure-inducing animations on epilepsy forums [/quote] Generally I've always loved Griefing be it simple or over the top gold stunts such as one half of your team reacting Titanic much to the dismay of your teammates in a ranked pub game. Now come on, intentional or not whenever have you caused someone to go batshit crazy for amusement or just dick around..... Now griefing and dickey could be done in two ways, simple things such as blocking a exit or nade chucking allies for causing rage or doing deliberate grand plans for a extreme grief along the lines of the infamous 4chan hobbo hotel pool stunt or something awful second life spider invasion. Many stories can be found here but only few of my own experience. The WoW Funeral Raid -During the early run of WoW a forum poster on the WoW forum I went on went nuts on a certain event that happened, this forum poster was a Role Player who had a gulid that really took Role Playing Serious. A fellow gulid member had died in real life and the circle of RPers decided to have a in-game Funeral for them. A mass gathering would happen as the funeral would take place in a 10-20 questzone that was optional. However some of the members decided to broadcast this whole thing on the whole bloody server that wasn't even a RP server to begin with :v: somewhere along the line groups of people conjured up on the purpose to crash the funeral and cause tears. When the funeral started the griefing group would try and fit in before using a item that would class you as PVP, it didn't take long before everyone was classed as PVP and the slaughter happened much to the ranting and flaming spamming the chat area [Media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHJVolaC8pw[/media] Cottan Episodes -UO stories [url]http://www.askcorran.com/belan/episodes.html[/url] Good Old Battlefield Vietnam Trick [quote]In Battlefield Vietnam there are transport helicopters that you can jump into and walk around in. As in all Battlefield games there's a certain subset of gamers that love using the helicopters and believe that they are more skilled than any other player in the history of mankind. Helicopter meet mortar. See, Battlefield Vietnam also includes deployable mortars which are actually small vehicles. The mortar has one interesting physics property - it wants to make contact with level ground any way that it can. Now, Dice were kind of smart when they implemented the mortar, they made it so you couldn't deploy the mortar on top of vehicles. Unfortunately it's extremely easy to work around this and the results are hilarious. So just before a freshly spawned helicopter takes off you jump into the back of it and deploy your mortar inside, before hopping out and watching from a distance. As the helicopter takes off it seems like nothing is happening at first, then eventually whoever is flying will try and bank a bit to turn. This means that the mortar - with its physics property of wanting to reach the ground - will move towards one of the walls of the helicopter, making that side of the helicopter also want to come into contact with the ground and increasing the helicopters bank. Eventually the bank will increase so much that the mortar will move onto the ceiling of the helicopter making the ceiling want to make contact with the ground. Essentially the helicopter goes up, flips, and hits the ground upside down. Of course the person flying knows that something was wrong with the helicopter, but try telling that to 4 or 5 angry team mates that have just died. Normally one person in particular will be spectacularly butt hurt about this, claiming that the pilot is a "nub" and insisting that they fly next.[/quote] Halo Custom Edition Rolling - In Halo custom edition there were a series of maps that were always played on by 24/7 servers, Coldsnap and Extinction were a few of these that literally everyone played. When you start your armed with a C4 and a sniper rifle that does amazing physic griefing abilities such as sniper jumping around or shooting a vehicle 5000 yards away from someone who needed it. In red base there was two custom vehicles that dropped nukes that would blow everything and instant kill, naturally if the server had friendly fire doing the nuke or c4 would still launch your allies off the cliff (The bases were on a interior with instant kill ledges and black abysses for anyone who fell). You could easily sit a C4 or nuke on, hide and watch as the ensuring hilarity before doing it again (you could also team-change which would then instant register as you killing the players). Protips for those who would stick a C4 on a allies vehicle right before they hit the teleporter to the outside only then for the bomb to launch them into heaven....finally there was a general secret teleporter that would teleport blue players inside red team's base (the bases were sealed and no way of getting in). it took a simple roam inside the other teams base via tele to jacking a Nuke bomber and just spawn killing the other team to hell with no way of them defending. EVE - A story that I consider harsh but serves the moron right for broadcasting it type: On Eve a father had recently lost his son to drunk driving as he slammed into a truck, the father broadcast this and renamed a station/ship in his honor. A bunch of dicks found this out and while the guy was out mining reacted the kids death, one player piloted another smaller ship while the other a bigger ship, it was as the ship went close by the player with the smaller ship started typing in local "Dad help me plz" Well that's enough personal and found stories from me

I enjoy watching griefing videos on youtube, and i enjoy doing it myself However for every 1 good griefing video, there is 100 shitty ones. I enjoy z0mby and jirxin, but i hate the ones you get on Machinima, dont remember his name but everyone tends to love him. People act like he invented griefing.
i do love some grieifing, i used to do it all the time on COD BLOPS with my friend, chasing people and shooting them to reveal their position
I fucking love annoying people to no end.
Me and my friend currently play APB:R and have been griefing it for about 3 months now. Such fun it is to plow into people with their own loot vans and then take their hard earned money.
If you want to grief people easily, go to DarkRP.
When I play BF3, if I see a sniper I go full asshole mode. I'll C4 them, drop helicopters or jets on them, and otherwise fuck up their day.
In Mount & Blade Napoleonic Wars my regiment generally has no problem with people fucking around, so long as they listen when they need to. So when we practised doing 1v1's in this small fortification arena I got picked and we fought for about 10 seconds, then the game engine stabbed me through the chest. Literally. I had got at least 3 killing blows on my opponent but none registered, so he sneaked an attack in and killed me. After, I stayed in the spawn house next to the arena , went upstairs, and waited for him to face his next opponent. "Ok, fight in 3, 2, 1.." *BANG* "Eurghhh" *flops lifeless to the floor* "What the hell?" Later in that training we did some shooting practise. One person would run out, the Officer would give the "present" and then the "fire" order and everyone would fire, and anyone who killed the runner became the runner. Then one of the high ranking members in the regiment who was also admin volunteered. "Ok, whoever shoots me gets the Holy Hand Grenade" *Starts running* *BANG*

BF3 griefing can be hilarious, and [URL="http://www.youtube.com/user/birgirpall"]birgirpall[/URL]'s videos are an absolute gold mine. Personally I really like shooting smoke grenades at those useless camping snipers in my team, as shown at 1:25 below: [video=youtube;vNDZiVTyr84]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNDZiVTyr84[/video] [editline]11th June 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=M.Ciaster;36290811]Birgirpall is the absolute best when it comes to griefing videos (although I'm not sure if you could really call it griefing, he's just... creative): [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lX9HmEItSyk&feature=relmfu[/media][/QUOTE] I'd definitely call C4'ing enemy vehicles at their spawn griefing. I like to imagine it's thanks to him DICE removed C4 remaining after respawn :v:

normally during my long hours of CSS sessions back in the day i'd come across people who were dicks. they stole kills and worked in groups. the fact that they worked in squads made it real easy. a flash here, a smoke there, entire squad of douchers gone.
Oh god the mortar thing for Battlefield Vietnam in the OP does anyone have a video of it?
Some of the L4D ones are great. I remember this video where one guy just stares at the metal detector on Dead Air, and just..he just walks through.
the fuck rated me dumb. teamflashing is fuckin classic. especially if you perform it on people who take the game way to seriously.
Because that's not even funny. You're just being a dickhead.

Only griefing ive done recently involved parking a tank on an attack helicopter spawn in BF3, preventing the chopper from respawning and pissing off the numerous players who sit and wait for it to appear
Rate me dumb but i think thats just outright tasteless to ruin a memorial for a player that had recently passed away.
[QUOTE=Str4fe;36302056]Rate me dumb but i think thats just outright tasteless to ruin a memorial for a player that had recently passed away.[/QUOTE] Ruin? His memorial became much more memorable thanks to those griefers, truly a spectacle rather than a few people just standing around. If it were me, it's how I would have wanted to go, along with a large number of other people who say the say thing in the Youtube comments.
