7 ways video game strategies can help you protect yourself from toxic people

  1. Gear up: In real life, this means establish healthy interpersonal boundaries. If you’re geared, you’re in good shape and it’s way harder to take you down.  Figure out where you end and other people begin.
  2. Learn how to misdirect people and drop threat: Get a good poker face, or an intentionally bad one. Learn how to exit situations quickly and quietly if needed.
  3. Learn to PvP: If you have to spend time with the person, study them and learn their strategies, strengths and weaknesses because that is exactly what they are doing to you.
  4. Find out aggro ranges: IRL, learn how to spot who you’ve aggroed, intentionally or accidentally. Many are great at being nice and getting close to you (see #3). Aggro ranges change constantly, so be aware of yourself and your surroundings.
  5. Find a guild or get a PvP team: Surround yourself with people who have your back.  If no one has your back, leave the battleground or encounter and go to one with better odds. Get a PvP partner or two.
  6. Stealth if you’re in enemy territory: Learn how to move undetected if you need to. IRL, be modest and low-key. Learn the terrain and adapt. Don’t draw unnecessary attention to yourself.
  7. Use the training dummies: Don’t get comfortable and over rely on your awesome gear or badass guildies. Neglect your skills at your own peril. People are rarely taken down in groups- you are most vulnerable when you are alone. Always remember that.
