Everybody know this famous movie of 1967 directed by Robert Aldrich that depict a Dirty Dozen of individual. Here is the storyline: “A Major with an attitude problem is told to interview military prisoners with death sentences for a dangerous mission: To parachute behind enemy lines and cause havoc for the German Generals at a rest house on the eve of D-Day.“
It looks like this movie did inspired Master Troll to make a modern internet version. He kept Dirty. He kept Dozen and write his own storyline: “A developer with an attitude problem choose to select 12 lies or claims and spread them on the web to reach his hidden agenda: To parachute behind backers lines and cause havoc to his historical competitor, on the eve of D-Day game release.”
So what this movie have to do with this guy IRL? I picked his public statements/prophecies from here (for the sake of the parody, I kept obviously only 12, but there are even more), sorted them out, updated some and classified them by one of the favorite Master Troll tactics, one or several at once: obfuscation, speculation, deception, unverifiable claims, prophecies and of course the most common one, lies.
Obfuscation: to make (something) unclear to the understanding
Speculation: Ideas or guesses about something that is not known
Deception: The act of causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid
Unverifiable claims: Unable to confirm or verify an assertion open to challenge
Prophecy: A prediction of something to come. A statement that something will happen in the future
Lies: Marked by or containing untrue statements
Circle jerk: A group between like-minded individuals that validates mutual biases or goals
Out of 12 statements/prophecies, Master Troll reached the score of 10 proven false and 2 falling in the pit of unverifiable claims.
So as unverifiable stay unverifiable until they are proven true or false, he reached 100% of Lie/Deceptive actions. All of them were supposed to prove he was right. All of them prove that his agenda is headed to malign each single Star Citizen backers and to confuse or scare future backers.

Master Troll Public Statements
Status on Jan 2017
|He states that he has initiated legal action (24 august 2015)||
FALSE: or no longer true. One of the regular Master Troll tactic is to incorporate in comments legal wording, Gov. org names or threaten of initiated something. Every single citizen of Western countries can initiate a legal action (send a letter) then cancel it the same way a few days later.
Obfuscation, speculation, unverifiable claims prophecy and lies are his main weapons.
Proof? He stated himself on March 30, 2016 at 4:50 am he was not going to sue.
