Well if they actually collected the bots themselves they are hackers, but chances are they just paid for them.

If you honestly use any of those you should hang yourself.

Booters get you **** power, and you won't be able to down anything this large.

I suspect they're just using a botnet or a few hundred rooted servers.
#333 to #330 - invadingaliens (01/01/2014) [-]
probably, yeah, but really, booters make it easy for people to understand the concept of what's going on.
#442 to #333 - realzzz (01/01/2014) [-]
No, booters just clog the internet with filth for 12 year olds with their mommies credit card to go make themselves feel l33t cause they can down a home connection off xBox.

Trust me, I've been in the booter business for 2ish years now, if it weren't easy money I would love to get rid of every booter out there.

I get it when hackers make a false post on CNN or take down and actually terrible website, I'm looking at you westboro baptist church because its funny and/or it doesn't necessarily hurt anybody.
But to shut down servers and annoy millions of people to piss off one person is going way to far.

And the whole bit with claiming a ******* hostage situation on the guy? ******* Really?

Did OP say he was? No. He didn't. His fanboys are getting ridiculous nowadays.
User avatar #58 to #56 - sirlancealotofhoes (12/31/2013) [-]
What? I just took the opportunity to spread the word of cr1tikal, because he is doing an awesome deed.

Alot of other people donate to charity as well, you're still a fanboy though. "this gaming commentator isn't as good as the one I like lulz"

that's not what I said though

You didn't need to mention him. Imagine everytime you saw a video everybody was saying
"Oh this guys good but Pewdiepie is waaaaay better".
User avatar #127 to #125 - sirlancealotofhoes (12/31/2013) [-]
I never said he was a better commentator

You people are just as obnoxious as PewDiePie's "bro army", the way you worship this guy.
User avatar #139 to #134 - sirlancealotofhoes (01/01/2014) [-]
what

I simply claimed that going back to making money of streaming isnt righteous, it's the smartest thing to do
User avatar #140 to #139 - akkere (01/01/2014) [-]
It wasn't saying making money via streaming was righteous, it was remarking an experience on LPer had with hackers. And you people act like Cr1tikal is the only LPer who does his work without profit, which is obnoxious.
User avatar #149 to #140 - sirlancealotofhoes (01/01/2014) [-]
I never said that he was the only one, I implied that his experience wasn't that bad, and that cr1tikals is worse. If that's not a legit time to mention him, there isn't one.

who are 'you people' anyways? This is the first time on FJ that I've brought up cr1tikal, and I never said that cr1tikal is the only one that releases his work and give the profit to charities. But, he is relevant in the point I was raising.
User avatar #155 to #149 - akkere (01/01/2014) [-]
"You people" as in the entire Cr1tik4l fandom that acts like he's the only LPer who has IRL issues, does LPs without profit, then act like he's still obscure, and have to make everything is a competition where he's the victor. Seriously, it's no problem to mention it because it is relevant, but do you really have to sit there and go "Pfft, Cr1tik4l has it so much worse"? Why does it have to be a goddamn competition? That's the part that bugs me.
User avatar #156 to #155 - sirlancealotofhoes (01/01/2014) [-]
I had no idea that I was a part of the fandom, cheers.

I have now learned that I have to take responsibility for what everyone else writes about him, very well.

I never made it to be a competition, I compared two situations. Both are vidya commentators, so I thought it would be relevant.
User avatar #163 to #156 - akkere (01/01/2014) [-]
I never said you had to take responsibility for anything. If you don't consider yourself a fan of Cr1tik4l, then I apologize, but the way you went out of your way to compare the two and obnoxiously say "Pfft, being harassed by hackers, accused of being a hostage taker, and then arrested at the barrel of a gun is nothing compared to a lawsuit" made you look like that. I apologize, but I still stand that the need to compare and weigh one as being better or worse was obnoxious.
User avatar #173 to #163 - sirlancealotofhoes (01/01/2014) [-]
'"You people" as in the entire Cr1tik4l fandom that acts like he's the only LPer who has IRL issues'

seems like generalization to me. I get the whole hivemind-thing, but applying it in a debate is useless

the guy in the OPs situation is without a doubt uncomfortable, but after fighting against injustice and corruption for many years, and then being hit with a lawsuit like that, is diabolical irony.

by the way, I am not the one thumbing down everyone, ill try to keep it even as it isn't supposed to be used like this in a debate

User avatar #188 to #173 - akkere (01/01/2014) [-]
It's fine, I don't really believe in thumbing down people in a debate either and I don't assume anyone I'm arguing against would (not like one has any reason to; we can check who thumbs us now).

I apologize for exploding like I did with the assumption you were part of the fandom, I've just been agitated for a few days now for outside reasons and it was out of turn.

It just seems to me a lot of people exaggerate Cr1tik4l's role in a lot of things. I mean don't get me wrong, I don't want to downplay how much of a ****** up situation he's in with having to be stuck in a lawsuit by some cunt who was probably at fault in the accident, and I have no problem with Cr1tik4l in general; I watch his LPs on occasion when I have the time to do so. I'm just tired of a lot of members in the fanbase acting like he's the messiah of the Internet for simply not being a dick and being popular while in a situation that's not uncommon for most run-of-the-mill Youtube LPers.
User avatar #235 to #188 - craxxet (01/01/2014) [-]
I think we as a community can respect that.

It's only that the many people that choose to cash in all the profit that they can through YT-partnership and merchandise lowers the expectations on such celebrities..

Everyone else is just. . . no.

What happened to him ?

Recently or the whole deal with him?
#32 to #31 - pooding (12/31/2013) [-]
I guess the whole story would be better but its probably pretty long
User avatar #33 to #32 - sirlancealotofhoes (12/31/2013) [-]
I'll give you it in bulletpoints
- He plays video games and comments on them
- He never reveals his identity
- Is a partner with youtube, at first he didn't want to as he didn't want to make money of something he did as a hobby
- He later got a better idea, to sign up with youtube and donate every single penny he makes to different charities
- He makes roughly 3 000 dollars a month, and has got a twitter account where he posts all the receipts
- A few months ago he was involved in a car accident
- A woman involved decided to sue him, claiming that she got injured
- He refuses to spend any of his youtube money on the case, as he insists that it is something that he does for his own enjoyment and don't want to rely on it
- He is unemployed at the moment
- Made a video where he apologized to everyone that he wouldn't be able to upload as frequently due to the trial
- Still uploads as frequently as he did before
User avatar #116 to #33 - jaggedherp (12/31/2013) [-]
Don't forget, he wants to end corruption. Everywhere. Forever.
#367 to #116 - fuckyosixtyminutes (01/01/2014) [-]
Is this some kind of an inside joke? Because there's nothing impressing about "wanting to end corruption. Everwhere. Forever." Any 8-year-old with any moral compass could "want" the same.
#480 to #367 - smellmyfaceforswag (01/01/2014) [-]
But does that 8-year-old know of what implications to make this happen and how it could and couldn't be stopped? I don't think so. You have to start small then get bigger and build up to what you strive for. You have to believe it.

Go ahead and keep thumbing me down for asking a question, you stupid faggots.  Too bad the disapproval of strangers means nothing to me.  I got the information I was asking about, even if you morons were too pretentious to see it as just that, a simple request for information.  Thumb me down for asking and then for this too.

#176 to #33 - Rascal (01/01/2014) [-]
Yeah he made another video saying she was trying to claim $200,000 but ended up getting $75,000 and that it was all covered by his insurance and due to the women getting a bunch of "risky surgery" just to try and make it seem even worse than it was she ended up getting about $10,000 in the end after paying the bills.

This post left out quite a few details. The hackers did not initially target PL. They DDoS'd League and later began targeting him. PL got in contact with the hackers and streamed their convo. They were friendly toward him and he asked them some questions his viewers had (which, at one point, was at 140k viewers). They proved to him that they were real by taking down Dota 2 after he played it, as well as Club Penguin and the others. When asked why, they just said "For the luls". The server they were chatting on was counterhacked several times, and eventually the police were called to his cops by somebody.
#123 - thegreenbutton (12/31/2013) [-]

User avatar #59 to #55 - galgawine ONLINE (12/31/2013) [-]
when the other games got taken down people were joking saying he should do that and the hackers were watching so they took that down too
