I'm guessing everyone hates him at this point...

I'm guessing I might be the only one that doesn't hate Troy's guts, wants to send him to hell, kill him, rip his throat out, and all that... Now before I begin I would just like you to know that, I try to defend most characters, even though they may seem or are bad. I try to see the good side, and reasons to why they did what they did. Usually I am fighting for Lilly, Larry, Ben, and any other characters getting hated on. (Special thanks to MerakMissile2 for defending Vernon and his group, and anyone else who tries to think like me and him.)

In real life, there is child labor, trafficking, abuse(mentally, physically, and sexually), child soldiers, poor, hungry, thirsty, dying, and many more. If you can't handle a hit to the face then your as sheltered as Sarah. It's a cruel world, but you need to accept the fact that stuff like this happens every day, and you can't go and kill every person who has committed these foul deeds. "Killing is bad no matter what." --Lee.

"I do it because it's necessary. That doesn't make it good." -Lee. He says this afterwards. For me it depends on what happens next episode. If I absolutely have to, with reason, and meaning behind it then I will kill him. But if we have the choice I may most likely spare him.

I am quite against killing. Your ending a persons life. I just find that terrifying. I don't believe anyone should die except maybe those psycho, demon possessed, crazy ass people who can't even control themselves, and don't know right only wrong. Believe me. In real life I hate a lot of people, especially the trolls. But killing goes a little too far for me. Maybe a beating, jail time, or some kind of small punishment(good enough so that they understand) will teach them that what they did was bad.

Don't judge a book by its cover. "BUT HE HIT CLEM!" Yeah... So? You haven't even seen or played the episode yet. I always like to see the facts first before judging a 5 second clip. I agree that he deserves some punishment but I'm not killing him. Carver is the real bad guy/antagonist here, and I'm pretty sure TellTale made that clear.

After we play Episode 3, that's a different story. We know what's going on, why he did it, and his motives. Could he be as crazy as Carver? Is he following orders? What if he tries to help you escape? What is hes an undercover spy trying to bring down Carver? Could Clem have pissed him off in some way?

We don't know anything except that he hit Clem. And for me, that's pretty bad. But killing him for me is not the answer. I would like to see more on Troy, and his personality. If we have the choice to kill him, I won't.

How many people killed both of the St John brothers? Last time I checked only around 22% of players. So your saying you would kill a guy who hit Clem, but you spare cannibals who could have eaten her, or worse?

So I am ready for down votes. Go ahead and click that button. I can see it already. Call me a troll, or an idiot. I don't really care. This is my opinion and you can't prove me otherwise. After episode 3 is released, then you can prove me wrong. I will most likely(around 90%) be wrong, but I hate to see people getting so much hate. All the hate comments have made me generate this thread. Haters gotta hate, and I know that. Hopefully I can convince you all otherwise. I know I can't as I have tried before, but its worth a shot.

Can't wait for the next episode! Love you guys and hope I haven't offended anyone.

  • Despite having stated a way to kill him on one of the "death to Troy" threads, I could never bring myself to kill him. I use to think if I was completely justified I could kill someone who was doing an incredibly bad thing. Then one night I had a very vivid nightmare. In it there was this man. He took hostage a bunch of young children and had them in a bomb-filled room to which he was holding the detonator. He didn't see me and i had a chance to take him out and save all the kids. I received lots of praise and everyone thought I was a hero. I felt like a monster. The deathblow was soul-scarring and the whole world felt like a darker place. Any justification I had only pushed the guilt down, never got rid of it. The only thing i began to want was to take it back, everything else seemed so petty. I've never been happier waking up, it felt like a second chance. I'll never forget it.
  • This guy slammed a little girl in the face with the butt of a gun. She's bruised and bleeding, she's knocked to the ground. There's NOTHING in my mind that can excuse that. He can fucking rot, and I don't care if it's "irrational" of me to think that. He's a fictional character. He's not even real. I have no reason to have to feel like I need to be rational to hate him for hitting a little girl, and you don't need to come in here and act like you're better than everyone because you want to sympathize with a fucking child abuser.
    • Don't you think you're overreacting a little but all he said was don't judge a book by its cover (I don't agree with him) he wasn't implying he was better than you or whatever crap like that hes trying to be civil can you at least do the same
      • But what's the point? Troy is a fictional character with no positive or redeeming qualities. He has no personality, no lines, nothing that could possibly give someone a reason to go "Oh, well, he's funny though" or "Oh, but he said that one thing that did make sense." All Troy has done is helped kidnap the group, and now he's manhandling/beating up Clementine. We know nothing else about him other than that he's Carver's kiss-ass lapdog. There's no reason for me to sympathize with him, and to come in and act all preachy and demand that people do looks to be just subversive for the sake of being subversive. There is literally NOTHING about Troy worth defending, unless you're either doing it to try and act better than other people, or you just wanna bang him.
  • Actually, I didn't kill the St. John brothers because I figured that leaving them to be eaten alive is a worse punishment than mercy killing them.
  • I wasn't used to seeing Clem get physically beaten like that. It came as a shock when Carver pistol whipped her in my game, and I reacted to it the way Lee would react. I know it sounds stupid, but I see Clementine as a little sister and I feel like I have to protect her in every way, fictional character or not. But seeing Troy hitting her like that made me realize that Clementine isn't protected by this special force that prevents people from touching her. I haven't changed what I think about Troy and I'd never forgive him, but yeah, I see what you're trying to say.
  • I like how everyone (most) wants to have sexual intercourse with Troy, hence, "Fuck Troy"
  • To be honest, my intuition tells me that Troy's just a Carver's camp loyalist version of Nick, and that Carver's probably gonna end up killing him or it's gonna be Kenny. I think he might have half-done that to lesser the chances of Clementine getting herself killed due to her attempts to escape. #DefendingTroy
  • About the St. John's most people killed Danny then left Andy alive as there was no point in loving for him he lost the will to live sometimes there are far worse punishments than death
  • I dont want troy dead to be honest, i just have a passinate hate for him for hitting clem.
