A Swedish teenager has allegedly stabbed a 15 year old girl after a faulty Internet connection left him unable to play Starcraft online.
The incident occurred on August 9th; The teen became furious after his Internet connection ceased to work, leaving the Swedish teen unable to play Starcraft online. In his confused rage, the teen stormed out onto the street located opposite his house and was carrying a kitchen knife. He stabbed a 15 year old girl who happened to be walking by the road.
Thankfully, her injuries have been confirmed as “non-fatal”.
The teen has been sentenced to “psychiatric care”. Seeing as the teen’s psychiatric state was not “sound” at the time, the incident has been classed as attempted manslaughter, as the teenager had no intention of actually murdering the girl when he left his house furious.
Seeing how furious this teenager got over an Internet downtime, it’s a good thing that no-one haxored his accounts, in a leet way, that is..
How does this incident make you feel about Starcraft online, does it have as many addicts as World of Warcraft?
