I'm thinking of adding "Tradewars career record vs. Helix: 10+ to 0 (undefeated)". Would that be considered smack talk, or does the same rule apply here as does in the legal system, e.g. a statement cannot be considered libel if it is the truth?

(I say 10+ because I can't actually remember how many times I've played him, but it is more than 10 and less than 100.)

Edit: In the event this is actually considered smack talk, you should consider this entire conversation to be purely hypothetical. Except for the undefeated part, of course.


The truth can be an absolute defense to defamation.
That being said, hyperbole is frowned upon, and I'm not OK with name-calling. We are all passionate about this game or we would be playing Fortnite instead, right?

Relax, just trying to lighten things up a bit in here. At least Comet thought I was funny. Then again, Comet's sense of humor borders on criminally insane.

You know... You probably should do some colo hauling instead of talking smack on here. On second thought get your keester into the kitchen and make me a SAMMICH. I'm hungry!

Meh, not in a hurry to haul colos in a game where I already killed everyone else.

I see dead people!

Fornite makes me want to hurt people. My son is so into it. He looks at this game or half of the others I play and says he doesn't get it.
