Always go with your instinct against a potential griefer

Recommended Posts

A Cautionary Tale of going with you gut/intuition.

I have always been intuitive to a certain extent.  I can generally feel the atmosphere or energy of a situation and feel off.  I generally try to ignore it because I don't like to judge a book by its cover so to speak.  Rant aside, I knew something was wrong with the Willow that came in.  


Story Time


I decided to join a server instead of hosting one.  I like working with different people and playing with them, even if I'm not the most talkative person.  Besides, it gets old really fast when I only play with my brother.  Anyway, I join a server and everything seems cool.  There is even a Willow on the server that's not burning stuff down (not all Willows are griefers).  I start building a base by the portal because I generally like to prepare tools for potential people coming in.  It was early on so I was only able to build: a science machine, alchemy machine, firepit, and treasure chest filled with several pickaxes and torches. 

A couple of days pass and I'm gathering tools for a crockpot or two in order to put my mushrooms and rabbit trap to use.  Unfortunately, another Willow entered, and she fit the stereotype of a griefer in this tale.  I didn't know it at the time, so I told her to get a pickax and torch from the chest to start off.  She did a swoon emote and something shifted in me and gave me a bad feeling; her actions rang false to me.  I decided to brush it aside as her being dramatic.  Then she did it again and I got a bad feeling once again because she was being way too dramatic to a person giving her a simple pickax and torch.  Most people would simply type or say, "Thx" and move on.  I didn't dwell on it because I needed to make a crockpot, so I went to collect and mine rocks.  

After I collect enough rocks for two crockpots, I come back to the stuff being set on fire.  The hosts of the server kick her out shortly after.  Though I did learn a lesson.  Always trust your gut feeling, and I need to do that more in real life.  I don't know why I don't learn my lesson because I'm generally right.



If something feels wrong, then it probably is.  Always go with your gut feeling and kick them out.  If another person is hosting the game, then keep a watchful eye on them until they go away.
