No. I have try'd many and many ways because well i get pissed, and you wanna get someone back, but narrowly in the end all you gotta do is mute, or don't even respond. Cain and Abel can grab your IP, but you gotta be in the same game,. even though in a game, everyones IP shows up, I highly doubt he will find yours. Plus IP flooding can be done, but I'm pretty sure any IP flooders or any programs like Net tools, won't do you harm. Don't worry :smile:

^Read above.

Anyways just don't worry. People always say that they will 'hack you' or 'boot you offline' when they have no clue. They use that threat because they don't have anything else to say in an argument.

You don't have to worry. Stop stressing it. It's nothing but some random throwing false threats around. Even if he did get your IP I doubt he has a good UDP flooder. Also no he wouldn't get your IP address.

Exactly, and I already know about party....
I just didn't include it because I highly doubt he's gonna get in a party with someone threating him.

there's only 2 ways someone can get your ip in game or an easyer way would be for him to invite you to party then your ip will pop up straight away if its just you and him in a party just block him thats all i do to people who talk **** there not worth listening to

Jesus, why so many explanations?
NO, if someone tell you he is going to flood your Ip, don't worry cause he most likely doesn't have a clue on what is saying.
Dont stress over this.

Nope. Only if you join his Party. Don't worry they usually will NEVER kick you off. He just wants to care you and grow his ePenis a little larger.

When I say I'll boot someone offline I do, because it's funny. Anyways though, quite easy to fetch ip in game, just boot game host then join as they search for a new game, as thus you just created a connection between the two of you....
