Getting sick of the Troy hate

edited May 2014 in The Walking Dead
I didn't want to complain, but that's all I've been seeing since yesterday about Troy's character. He is getting WAY too much hate, and it's really irritating because I like his character. I personally think most of you are overreacting to what he did. Is there anybody else who likes Troy? I don't really want to be alone on this.

  • THANK YOU! *Insert "He's right you know" Morgan Freeman meme*
  • Well we have nothing else to talk about. The trailer's still fresh in our heads.

    Well the episode has not been released, we barley know troy, he hit clem in the face, perfect recipe for hate so we'll see what happens

  • How can you like his character he hasn't even talked, we know nothing of him.
  • It depends on what they do, but yes otherwise

    I know right. People want to see him die in the most gruesome way possible just because he made a cut in Clem's cheek. If someone does something bad to her, the fans will rage instantly.

  • Troy is my new waifu after the trailer.
  • Guys, we haven't seen anything to 'like' him, all we've seen is him hitting Clem, how could you possibly like him?

    I'm allowed to hate Troy as much as other people on here are allowed to hate Lilly or Kenny or Carver or Nate or etc. And plus, I think it's good that people are reacting with hatred to a guy who hurt an eleven year old girl - he deserves the hate. This is the first time we've really seen Clementine be physically harmed by a living person (besides Winston and determinately Carver), people are going to hate anybody who lays a hand on her. Even if Carver is making him act all bad and stuff, he definitely did /not/ have to hit her with a gun hard enough for her to hit the floor and bleed.
  • ^So much "this". If anything, people defending him because they're fans of him are the ones I truly don't understand in all this. Those simply saying we should wait and see the context are most likely giving Troy too much credit, but at least it's not some desire to defend his honor as if he had any to defend in the first place.

    How can you like his character he hasn't even talked, we know nothing of him.

  • I like him as a bad guy and his jacket is cool
  • It depends? Just look a this:

    ''this is how I want him to die.

    ima cut off his legs, then wrap them up so he doesn't bleed to death. then ima get little tiny shards of glass and put those little shard into his hands

    then ima put him at the bottom of a ladder. then ima release a bunch of walkers ALL around him so the only way he can escape is UP!

    ima put bob wire I the ladder and nails and razor blades.

    so its either get eaten live of climb up with only your upper body strength with shards of glass in him hands and with razors on the ladder >:3''

    This is just one of many of the death threats Troy is getting. I feel bad for the guy.

    Its a good thing he's a fictional character then
    I mean if he really did exist sure I wouldn't death threat him. But he doesn't.

    We don't really know the context of the scene yet, but from what I saw hitting Clem hard in the face with a gun wasn't really necessary. It wouldn't have been that hard for him to have just restrained her, would it?

    Anyway, I don't really hate him. I'll wait for the episode to decide.

  • Again he's only human, we all make mistakes. How many other characters in the game have committed bad actions? Look at it from that point of view as well. But yes, you're entitled to your opinion.

  • I do comment sometimes about me not liking him. but not all the time.

    what I don't do is make threads about him every 2 seconds.

    I made 1 thread about him and im not making anymore.

    ya people can hate him. comment all you want about hatting him, that im fine with.
    just please DONT MAKE A MILLION THREADS ABOUT HATING HIM! please :3

    People are just jumping on the bandwagon, just like when that silly Kenny gif was being posted on every thread regardless of its relevance.

    Just wait for it to dissipate.

    It's bad, absolutely.

    But people wishing him to have a painful death and talking about the different ways they want him to die and saying they would throw him to the walkers? That's just too much considering we don't fully know what's going on yet.

    We don't really know the context of the scene yet, but from what I saw hitting Clem hard in the face with a gun wasn't really nece

  • I agree with that.

    I remain neutral on the matter until I've played 203 and seen what he's really about.

  • IKR right i thought we'd get some really good threads from the trailer and the only thing i'm seein is Why Troy sucks,Lets kill troy,etc.Tired of it.It seems like thats the only thing people are talking about from the trailer.

  • It's not a mistake if it's completely intentional. With characters like Lilly and Kenny, who committed wrongdoings, we know how they think and we know they had reasons for doing what they did (Lilly was under huge amounts of stress and Kenny wanted to prevent Larry from turning). Nate is a huge wild card and Carver has shown he isn't afraid to injure Clementine, Sarita, etc. Troy, on the other hand, we don't know him yet and until then, we are allowed to hate him.

    Clementine is her own person, but this is often a good argument to make, so: if Clementine was your daughter, sister, friend, etc, and you saw her get hit like that, this whole conversation wouldn't be happening.

    well it kind of is a big deal.. he hit clem and everyone one here cares for clem.

    though I do wish people don't make a million threads about it.

    1 or 2 threads is fine.

  • I don't really hate him or anything, but he is going to die for being an immident danger to Clementine.

    That Kenny gif was funny for a little while, then it got annoying. Though it's still funny thinking back on it.

  • Of course, but she's a character that I like. Still, don't judge a book by it's cover. "We are allowed to hate him, because we don't know him"- judging a book by it's cover much?

    Sorry but I call bullshit on everybody here. Especially people who are adamantly defending Troy. We don't know anything about this guy yet except what I've seen in the trailer and Ep 2: he manhandles Clementine, he helps track down and kidnap essentially defenseless people, and cold cocks a little girl with the butt of a rifle, when he could have easily reached out and restrained her. People say he looked remorseful in EP 2, yeah I'm not seeing it. You'd think he'd be nicer, at the very least to the kid, in this new group if he felt bad about what he had to do at the cabin.

    Also, I remember some dude made a thread a couple days ago about not liking clementine, if a bunch of people, some of the very people in this thread, can say they don't agree but respect his opinion, I think people can chill out about a dude who looks like an asshole until proven otherwise.
  • Yeah I think he's a cool right hand man for Carver

    Actually, all these treads about him are getting pretty fucking annoying.
