Since the forums are relatively clean of Mega-Mecha Level trollishness, and we have some new candidates, I'm updating the troll list. The majority of these of these come from Mecha-Lenin's original list. Cred's for Mecha, and his reviewers. I removed the tiers and instead have decided to simply give the trolls a title instead. For those on the list, feel free to use the titles as nicknames in other parts of the forum.
Here are the rules for getting added to the troll list. Those on the list already, and myself, are allowed to vote on anyone who wishes to be added to the list. If people feel that a person should be on a list, than a review will be written up and added to the list.
For those who are already on the list, please help out on filling out the other reviews from here. http://forums.sinsofasolarempire.com/430708/page/2 I know that I've missed a lot of those, and I'm not stupid enough to invite ridicule unto myself by writing my review. Please PM me with those reviews.
Those who have been added to the troll list are eligible to write reviews.
Troll whose life ambition is to become a pop superstar, and he has the music video to prove that his ambitions are serious.
allegedly took up the alias 'worldstrider' and used it to troll countless forumites into oblivion
while many view this theory to be bunk, it must be said now that this theory has now been confirmed along with the theory that Ryat was the one who was behind the infamous "I blame Ryat thread"
Countless thousands are shocked by Sinperium's blatant disregard for decency and propriety, and by his frequent postings of unintelligible gobbledygook on a near-daily basis. He enjoys hiding half truths inside of walls of f^&* statistics.
This scandalous figure relishes the attention we give him and often makes posts about himself just to be able to read something that he has written.

RiddleKing-King of Lulls
This guy is a master at mixing half truths with subtle lies...he tends to go through a cycle with four stages:
- The Lurker phase- long periods (relatively) of little or no activity...the occasional posts in this phase lack both gravity and evidence of trolling
- The F*&% you phase - right when the community least expects it, he'll go on a tirade about how uber retarded you are...usually his analysis in this phase is more or less correct, and at this phase he begins to build credibility...
- The Remission phase- after the dust has settled, he'll go into a very serious, very caring mode...his comments are reasonable, seemingly thought-out, and sometimes a little lovey-dovey, almost to the point of flambouyancy...
- The Troll phase- using the recent credibility he's obtained, he'll start giving tips or comment on strategy...at first, he'll seem reasonable, but as time goes on this expert troll will gradually integrate small lies and misinformation into his "advice"...very often, people defer to his "advice", falling into a cleverly built troll trap...even the wisest forum members sometimes get caught by RiddleKing...

King of Kings-Lord of Rage
We all know KOK. He is dellusional. He will often rage and start sweareing your family till 10th generation.
Very dangerous and insane troll. He truly believes what he is writing and he could kill for it if he only know how.
Stay away, his paranoia is contageous and transmitted by close contact (see Kbroke) This is similar to the transmission of bronydom. (See OddskiBoddski)
He often tells the tale about his glorious victories which never took place and some interesting story about bia clan.
This guy is a true shit disturber, a "real player" if you will...
His strategy is simple...first, he'll align with the modders and troll the MP crowd...then he'll troll the modders, alienating himself from his own kind...then he'll get on TeamSpeak and tell his modder friends how great they are...somehow this master strategy results in modder vs. MP forum battles of epic proportions, and at the end of the day everyone forgets the subtle manipulations he performed...
He is also infamous for the "Bomber Rage Quit" or BRQ...simply amassing a large fleet of bombers almost guarantees a rage quit from this troll, leaving his wingmen to fend for themselves...

He is a notorious Ironclad Online chat troll. He's an asian fella with a little man complex, who's favorite sins pastime is to tell everyone how great he is. Huymac also enjoys rule 119.57, and makes no secret of it. He is a banker who shamelessly steals from the mouths of the poor to give to his already lavish lifestyle. He is also quite proud of this fact. Aside from shouting his own praise, his other pastime is to initiate arguments online and lose them.

BrazilianJoe-Someone PM me with a Title
This troll is most commonly known for making threads on the forum that contain the word "official", making new victims believe that Brazillian_Joe is a Stardock or Ironclad representative. Even though he may be a tier two troll, this guy is a serious thread to your health.
Besides making his own threads seem very official, this Brazillian troll also declares threads from legitimate forum users (and sometimes even threads made by other trolls too!), unoffical. Making newcomers think that Joe - pretending to be a StarClad representative - knows best and therefore they will listen to him rather than to innocent forum users, whose threads are banished into the deeper layers of the forums, where they will remain unseen for a long long time...
Luckily, numerous smarter trolls (mostly the tier 1 trolls), have pointed out to the newbies that Brazillian_Joe is a cheap troll instead of a StarClad rep, and now most forum regulars are very aware of him. Joe lies under heavy fire regularly these days, being stuck at +9 karma for weeks by now. This does not make him any less of a try-hard though, and he continues to bring more dangerous trolls and influential forum regulars down with seemingly official statements.
Remember, once the Brazillian troll starts to post replies that are filled with words that no one can even find in the regular dictionary, get the hell out of that thread! For if you stay too long, his Brazillian voodoo-magic will draw you nearer and nearer to becoming a slave of the Brazillian troll... An average Joe!
More celebrity than a real troll. Will do everything to be visible (wonder why didn't he published his sex tape yet)
Usually he is shallow and has nothing to say but will write a lot of sensless comments just to get some karma.
Ignoring him is strongly suggested
He also enjoys spamming your browser with ten-foot long posts containing nothing but the word reserved. Stay out of the Everything Else section if this annoys you.

It does chaining damage. Lots of chaining damage. So much that it eats planets for breakfast.
