CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

March 22, 2010 -

A 17-year old gamer playing Counter-Strike in a Jilin, China net café was accused of wall hacking and, following an argument with his accusers, ended up being stabbed in the skull by with a 12-inch long knife.

Hot Blooded Gaming has the story of the incident, which, in turn, is taken from a Sankaku Complex translation of a Chinese blog. The 17-year old stabbing victim retained consciousness and was rushed to the hospital, where it’s reported that after hours of surgery, the knife was removed and the boy appeared to be recovering. Doctors said that the rusty knife missed major arteries, though the boy was placed under observation due to possible complications from the rust on the knife.

 The café in question was apparently quite liberal in requiring IDs for entry, making it popular with local youth.

A second and rather graphic picture of the boy being prepped for surgery can be seen here.

Seriously? What the hell, people? If your moral compass is telling you that it is okay to kill someone because they abused your particular form of entertainment, you need to back up and examine your priorities. Really, this level of hate is starting to look like crazy religious fundamentalists. We going to start burning the heretics of the Church of Game? Beautiful...

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Well, it is a fun game. We catholics used to do it all the time, Burn the Heretics. Ah, good days. And now it's being played again! Awesome! Remember, burn them all!

Angry Mob: A hacker, we found a hacker!! Burn him!!! Burn him!!! Burn the hacker!!!!

Mob Guy 1: We found a hacker, may we burn him!!!

Angre Mob: Burn him!!! Burn him!!! Burn him!!!!!!

Moderator: How do you know he is a hacker?

Angry Mob: He was kicking our asses in Modern Warfare 2!! He was too good! He must be hacker! Burn him!!

Angry Mob: Burn him!!! Burn Him!!!!!

Moderator: Bring Him Foward.

Accused: I am not a hacker.

Moderator: But then why were you winning like one?

Accused: I'm just really good.

Angry Mob: No!!! Not True!!! Liar!!!!

Moderator: Well?

Mob Guy 1: Well, I was holding perfectly still when he sniped my head off. And he did have a higher level with better, but legitimate weapons. But he's still a hacker!!!!

Angry Mob: Yeah!!!Burn him!!! Burn him!!! Burn him!!!

Moderator: Did you really just hold still and use bad tactics?

Angry Mob: No!!! No!!! No!!!

Mob Guy 1: Yes.

Mob Guy 2: Yeah

Mob Guy 1: A bit.

Angry Mob: A bit. Just bit.

Mob Guy 1: He was camping.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

finally made me login to my account to post something again, congratulations. while ill admit hackers definitely are annoying, theres usually a very simple solution for your whiny rants, find another server. I also hate the whole "omg this guy has 20 kills and 3 deaths he must be hacking!" my best friend plays modern warfare 2 pretty much religiously, think hes on his 6th prestige by now, and he gets accused of hacking in damn near every game.

in another case, i was playing battlefield bad company 2 the other day, and i happened to get a lucky shot with a sniper rifle and kill the pilot of a blackhawk, it was low to the ground and it hit and exploded, so i got 4 kills. will this ever happen to me again? most likely not. regardless, because of that one shot i got basically the whole enemy team accusing me of hacking, yelling at me to leave the game etc.

basically my long rambling rant there comes down to this. while i strongly believe that people using cracks do cause an annoyance, nobody deserves to be stabbed over something this trivial, so take a couple deep breath's, find a new server, and remind yourself this one simple fact.

Its a game. Games are supposed to be fun.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

@Agorwol: Sniping a copter pilot's a good feeling, isn't it? Did it to a Hind myself. Yeah, it is a problem. Some guys can't seem to grasp the fact that there are those who are better than them. It's a problem.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

im far from being better, im not bad, but that was a lucky shot. and yes it was satisfying until i was accused of cheating by people who couldn't believe i got a lucky shot.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

@Agorwal: Now, I know I saw some trailers and read some lesser known promotions that said it was possible to snipe a pilot. Guess some have to blame it on cheating rather than skill or luck.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I was traveling around the Philippines a while ago and saw someone blatantly wallhacking in CS in an internet cafe. 

Those are the WORST kind of hackers IMO because if they're caught, it does nothing to them personally.  The CS account is from the cafe, and they didn't pay a cent for it. 

I was so close to laying into him right there, but I was sure that the language barrier would just make me look like a crazy foreigner.  I know how those people felt when they stabbed the loser.  Mind you, I wouldn't stab anyone like most people on this site says.  But I know the frustration felt when you play a game with people online, and a small ammount of people make the ENTIRE game unplayable!  I'm currently playing Mordern Warfare 2 now, and its the same problem.  I feel like I want to reach across the screen to give the hacker a punch to the jaw.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Wow, some of the comments on here are absolutely sickening.  We all know that videogames don't cause violence, violent people cause violence.  So why are some of you saying this guy deserved to get stabbed in the brain over a damn VIDEO GAME?  This is the kind of crap that gives people like JT and Michael Atkinson ammunition, what are you people thinking?

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

That's the thing, they aren't thinking.

This is the internet, there couldn't be ANY reprecussions to this sort of thing, like you know, some wannabe reporter seeing all these comments about how cheating in a video game deserves being murdered and deciding to throw it all over the news "GAMERS CONDONE VIOLENCE AGAINST CHEATERS" or "GAMERS SAY KID ACCUSED OF CHEATING SHOULD HAVE DIED/DESERVES TO DIE"

 

oh no that could NEVER happen /sarcasm

They say game critics should do their research as a cure for their ignorance, i for one hope they never do as they'd find all this and just have more ammo.

On one hand, i give the moderators/administrators credit for putting up with this in the name of free speech, on the other i find them responsible for the abhorrent comments and blatant flaming/trolling here due to non action. but in the end it's their site, i guess they can allow whatever they want.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Well lesson learned, don't wallhack in china.

And somebody got stabbed in the face over the internet, makes me feel unsafe now.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Wow, that's some hate this guy's generated. Evidently, he's gotten what he's deserved, according to everyone. And no one has noticed that it wasn't proven that he was wall hacking. He was just accused by a couple of guys who then subsequently stabbed him.

I mean, hackers are the scum of the gaming community. I generally make it a policy of mine to target hackers whenever I find them. Nothing irritates me more when playing an FPS than hackers, except maybe headset use by either kids or guys who seem to think that using a lot of profanity makes them look badass, but only because those two types of gamers are more common. If it were up to me, I would make it so that caught hackers would be always seen on radars and maps of all games they played for all time. However, killing? Really? Hackers are such a bother, they're worth true hate? I can't see how. They're hackers. They deserver a lot of things, but killing them isn't worth the energy it takes lift a knife.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Indeed, and as I said above, even if a player isn't cheating, some people will accuse someone who is winning of cheating, evne when they aren't.

My brother got in a lot of practice with the sniper rifle in Halo PC, so good he could nail a moving Warthog. He can't count how many times people wanted him kicked for hacking, when he did no such thing.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Crap, seriously?! I'm largely a sniper in firstpersonshooters, so from one sniper to another, I must say that's impressive. I'm not that good yet. As for the cheating thing, it's happened a lot. A guy's winning, it must be cheating.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

As DarkSaber mentioned earlier, such acts happen in the real world for far less important, non-gaming reasons.

It all comes down to anger, frustration, one's preception of justice and how one has learned, directly and indirectly, to handle such circumstances.

You've got individual A who has done something or is at least accused of something.

And you've got individuals B and up who are responding in the way they have learned to.

And then you have everyone else who wasn't there, preceiving what happened and responding in our own, individual way.

I'm reminded of another fairly recent event.  The event where someone at WalMart walked up to a mother carrying her crying baby and slapped the child because they wanted to shut the child up.

How many times long before this have people complained about crying babies in public situations, such as in stores?  How many have claimed they would walk up and shut the child up?  How many would actually DO it?  Now, someone did.  Very few who claimed ThEY would do it are now on the side of the person who did it.  Saying how terrible it was.  A few are supporting the slapper.  while others are shifting gears and saying the slapper should have slapped the mother instead.  Of course, if they HAD slapped the mother...

The attackers in this story, through whatever direct or indirect education and life experiences, ended up reacting the way they did.  One has to wonder if they had known of someone in the past having done a similar thing, would they STILL have acted the same way this time?  After having actually seen a story like this, who FELT the same way before, more more or less likely to actually DO the same thing now?  Will their expression still be of support or changed because of the act having been done?

I'm pretty sure I could take a few jabs at making jokes about this, but I'm just not in the mood to take a stab at it.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

If you find someone hacking in an internet cafe the appropriate ecourse of action is to give them the bum's rush (i.e. literally throw them out of the building). This is completely unacceptable, although as stated above this happened over someone cheating, it could've happened over a game of poker (with no actual money involved) or Monopoly.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Well, after reading the amazingly not well thought out comments directly under the post, I'd say that someone is the definition of video games making people violent, even if they have no real reason to.

But then again, on second thought, I had a very large post I was going to make about how stupid this makes people look, but I think that I have thought better of it, and will just state that any time a kid, or anyone is wounded in such a fasion of something that can now not be proven, is just sad and pathetic.

People that wish harm onto anyone that they do not know, and people that wish harm on people that are not attempting to do harm to those people are truely the scum of the earth.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

You know your comment is exactly the same thought process of my fiance's. & was in the USMC. I agree w/you on this. Even if you don't know someone on a game, the person on the other end shouldn't wish bad luck on the hacker if he's hacking. I just think of it as what comes around goes around. So what would happen if Val was wished to die? & maybe if he was told to his face. How would that make Val feel?

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Wow talk about extreame nerd rage. Hackers will be part of a game in some way or the other. If it bothers you that much than go find a different game that has less of an hacker issue. Taking a knife is just way overboard man.

 

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Cheating in a video game is bad, but murdering someone is worse.  I hope the guy who stabbed him is charged and convicted of attempted murder.

Regardless of if he cheated or not, shoving a rusty knife into someone's skull is wrong.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

I like games I do alot but I wouldnt stab someone in the head over them

Ive never seen the point of having two seperate crimes "murder" and "attempted murder" isnt the only difference not actually manageing to kill him/her/them?.

they tried to kill someone wether or not they succeeded is tragic but beside the point.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

There is another angle many are ignoring.

The kid was only ACCUSED of hacking, there's nothing saying he actually did, and in many, MANY cases, if a player is decimating his opponents in a video game, even if he's doing it without cheating, he gets accused of hacking.

I remember my brother, who has NEVER cheated at any online game in his life, was accused left and right on Halo of being a hacker, when all he was was a decent shot with a sniper rifle. Usually a player who sucks or just sin't a good as they think they are will accuse the one winning agaisnt them of cheating.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Three things. 

1) What the hell is wrong with these Asian countries and these types of game stories?  Between the petty violence and the binge-gaming deaths, these tales are all-too-common.  Is it a consequence of a cultural value?

2) Knife violence.  And here I thought only guns made people kill.

3) Hackers suck, but NOBODY deserves to be stabbed in the head for hacking to win a GAME. 

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

It is a "common" occurence of these all bizarre stuff in Asia, not because culture, but because HALF OF THE PLANET POPULATION live there... So, if nothing ever happened there, something would be wrong...

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

Ah, the number of reserachers trying to figure out just that question.

The best explanation I have heard for China at least is that the asymetric birth rates are taking their toll on the nation.  Too few girls to go around, and there is still a strong system of 'sucessfull males get multiple females', so that cuts down the numbers even more.  So you end up with a growing male population with no possiblity of settling down with a famile or even having a gf to temper them a bit, so they obsess on male bonding culture instead.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

" these tales are all-too-common."

They really aren't, it's just that every single time an incident happens, sites like GP, Kotaku et al cover them, creating the illusion that they happen all the time, much in the same way TV news stories like to present murders in a fashion that implies you'll be knifed, raped, shot etc etc the second you leave your house.

Glad to see the comments here dispelling the "gamers are violent" myth so effectively. ¬_¬

As frustrating as hackers can be in multiplayer games, I don't think murder is proportional retaliation for someone inconveniencing you in a game.

Proportional schmportional, people have been killed for a lot less in the non-gaming world.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

If he was a dirty hacker, *SNIP*

I hate, hate, HATE hackers with every fiber of my being. Want to mod or hack a single player game? Go right ahead, it's on your computer. If you feel the need to use hacks to ruin other people's gameplay or to get ahead on leaderboards for games you aren't good enough at by yourself, you cross the line. Hackers are Cowards and the scum of internet gaming. *SNIP*

EZK: Chill.

Re: CS Hacker Stabbed in Brain

 I can understand the off-hand comment when you see someone hacking saying things like "Die in a fire" thats all anger and blowing off steam at someone who cheated.

Seeing what just happened and saying he deserved it though?  You start to seem more like the guy who did this too him.  Saying that because they cheated at a game they deserve to die is ridiculous.  They deserve a slap on the wrist, they deserve to be shunned by other gamers, they deserve to have their computers smashed.  These are more reasonable punishments, fitting the crime.

You may have been sarcastic, I hope you were, but if thats the case then you need to realize that the internet can't express your sarcasm, except perhaps with a "/sarcasm off" at the end of your rant.
