The worst thing I've ever done? I surrendered a 10 year old handicapped kid last Sunday. All I saw was someone one the other side of a bunker so I poked him with my barrel and yelled SURRENDER!! SURRENDER!!! as loud as I could. Scared the crap out of him. As he walked away I felt about 2" tall. Thank goodness I didn't bunker him. That would have been much worse.

???
Surrendering him was the RIGHT thing to do...
Shooting him point blank while laughing & making cripple jokes would have been bad. :dodgy:

I know, but if I had known it was him I would have backed away and let him play longer instead of sending him back to the staging area. He's a really cool kid. We joked about it later and had a good laugh.

Eh, i view kids with special needs the same way i view girls or young kids. Theyre here to play, let them play. Not some half-buttocked go easy on him style of play.

Then, just like with everyone 'new' or of similar skill sets, I don't pwn them just because I can. I usually take the time to improve something I'm bad at- you know, playing with my nondominant hand, conserving paint when semi, bunker runs/surrendering instead of sitting back, etc.

That said, i think you did the exact right thing. You didnt know any better, and even if you did, you did nothing wrong. Why would you detract from his fun by making him feel like he isnt a real opponent/threat or giving him an advantage if he didnt need it and was really just outsmarted like the best of us get sometimes.
