A student fell to his death after leaning over the edge of a hotel balcony to get a better signal for the mobile game he was playing.

 

Pattanadej Homhuan, 21, was in Bangkok, Thailand, to for a tournament for the incredibly popular mobile game Honor of Valor.

 

He was playing the game -- also known as Arena of Valor and Honor of Kings in different markets -- when he complained to his friends that he was struggling to get a good 4G signal. One friend then saw him walking out to play on the balcony of his fourth-floor room.

 

One said: ''Pattanadej complained about a poor signal and I saw him walking out to play on the balcony. And that was the last time we saw him.''

" ....after leaning over the edge of a hotel balcony to get a better signal "

How is that anything other than speculation? No-one in the article reports witnessing that.

Hotel's WiFi to blame because the speed is too slow and the deceased needed to switch to 4G. What a poor decision!

Nobody to blame but the deceased.

The culling of the herd. Only the strong survive. Those who follow the path of stupidity strengthen the herd by their choices. :coffee1:
