To all "so-called" BDO "Karma bomb" victims ...

... when you are the one pulling the ring on the bomb you are not being "karma bombed," you are committing "karma bomb suicide."

From this point on you will correctly identify yourself as a "Karma Suicide Bomber," and refrain from calling those you voluntarily kill as "Karma Bombers."

That is all for now.

i get where you are coming from but that'll never stick. phrases have to be catchy and "karma bomber" is much catchier than "karma suicide bomber"

So, like Karmakaze then? Is that a word or thing yet?

This issue still seems ironic. Those being attacked can get revenge on the attacker and they don't like it? 

I suspect I am inviting hostility here but... The gist of it is. You flag up and attack me - you likely outgear me - I die. I come back, you kill me again. And... again. You lose karma and blame me? huh?! I know, there are two sides for every scenario. Maybe node wars could be expanded so that a guild owned territory would not suffer as much karma loss? It would make more sense as territory defense than the current, "this is my grind spot! go away!"

Calling the usage of a phrase popular simply because its "catchy" is an excuse.  It's called trying to assign blame to others for one's own actions, or the inability to accept the consequences for your own actions.  In other words, being immature.

"I couldn't grind because they kept killing me"

"I couldn't grind because I couldn't kill them enough"

"I couldn't grind because they are hogging all the mobs"

"This guy invaded my turf, but if I kill him I'll go red and loose out"

"That dudes grinding and wont let me grind with him, let me throw myself at him till he gets annoyed and goes away"

 

......le sigh.

these are two entirely separate conversations. 
1) Is "karma bombing" accurate
2) Is "karma bombing" easy and catchy

I'm only talking about 2). Catchiness has little to do with maturity or even accuracy. "Karma Suicide Bomber" will fail for reasons entirely unrelated to accuracy. 

Take for example Donald Trump's Slogan: Make America Great Again. Is it accurate? Who knows? Who cares? Is it catchy? Totally.

Idk, I kind of like Karmakaze... But it's not so much suicide because you're not wearing the bomb. It's just being a retard and walking up to a bunch of Semtex poking it with a lit dynamite stick and going "What will this do."

Commit Sudoku?

Yea, somebody mentioned it up above. Still doesn't really hold true to the whole concept of karma bombing though, if they're in an undecable guild screwing your grind rotation you really don't have a choice. Change channels, go red. You lose they win.

The difference between the phrases "Karma Suicide bomber," and Trump's "Make America Great Great Again," is that the former is not only accurate but also a fact and the latter is pure BS.

the other difference is that Make America Great Again will actually be used and "Karma Suicide Bomber" will not.

Except those using the phrase are just as ignorant as the one's using the phrase "Karma bomber" which brings us back to my original post.  

"Catchy" does not fix "stupid."

I don't see anyone defending anything.  Just correcting the phrase.  Stop trying to play the victim when nothing could be further from the truth.

I can shout corrections into the internet all day if I want, but if no one pays attention to them it's pointless. If you actually want to make a difference than you need to take the right approach.

If I am just getting to a spot and see someone (or a group) coming thru shortly after I arrive, I will absolutely move on. Same goes if they ask me like a civil human being - I will say hi and happily move along to find another spot/channel. However, if someone blatantly just comes up and kills me unprovoked? And if they are rude on top of it? I will come back again and again and let them bomb themselves into oblivion. As a wise man once said --- Stupid is as stupid does.  ;)

Who are you do determine a "right approach." Might want to jump off that high horse you're riding.  Just because it isn't the "right" approach for you, doesn't make it "not right."  I determine what's right in my approach. Not you or anyone else thank you.

I'm just going to come out and say this.

You're a snobby -----. If anyone's on a high horse it's you, after all you did make this thread to "correct" something you deem incorrect, am I right?

whoa i didn't mean to trigger an inferiority complex or something. I'm just telling you you are wrong and how you can correct that. Your heart is in the right place, it's just you haven't thought this through.

No you don't, unless you just want to sound self-entitled.

When you want to send a message, it's the reciever who determines if the approach was good or not, and it's up to you to use the best communication channels and forms accordingly. Otherwise, you're just talking to yourself
