My name is Peter and I'm Brazilian. Basically, I try to survive each year by being as sympathetic and insightful as I can. I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, LotR, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, history and a bit of math, besides literature, Football and geography. I also mod Neverwinter Nights 1 and am currently working on the ToaFR saga, besides a few side projects.

1 comment by Also_known_as_Peter on Dec 25th, 2011

Player "Cally" won at EVE Online despite it being a massively multiplayer game with no victory condition. Other players earn ISK (game currency) by mining, completing quests or killing each other. Cally, on the other hand, simply asked for it. And it worked, and there was nothing they could do about it. Because while the other losers went into the economy as honest workers, or corporations, he realized he could go in as a bank.Photos.com
The novice mode for illegal profiteering.He spent months running the "EVE Intergalactic Bank (EIB)." This offered loans for start-up EVE corporations and miners who wanted to buy tools, with interest rates and repayment plans and yes, we're still talking about a game people apparently play for fun.
Move over Pac-Man!Cally certainly had fun: He fulfilled the secret fantasy of every bank manager in history, when one day, he walked in and just took all the money. All the money was 790 billion ISK, about $170,000 in real dollars, which he used to become the greatest video game villain of all time. He spent a huge chunk of the money to buy a ridiculously powerful warship, another chunk posting a huge bounty on his own head, then sailed off into space just daring people to kill him.
Something like this -- the biggest middle finger in history.The ultimate dickery? He posted a 15-minute video bragging about how he got away with it, mocking his loyal employees at EIB, enemies who failed to stop him and the suckers who basically paid for a second job -- essentially paying for the right to have their money stolen. Understand: Cally is now officially smarter than every Bond villain put together, because he found a way to give an expository monologue without getting killed.

I got this from Cracked.com! It wasn't written by me, I just thought it to be a nice story I wanted to share.

So, are you a LOTR fan?

"Three for the Elven kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for mortal Men doomed to die,
and One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne."

You do know that Tolkien was referring to game servers, right? Those crazy lords of Men have nine servers all to themselves, but poor Sauron only has one.

"One gamer to own them all,
One gamer to find them them.
One gamer to pwn them all,
and to his server bind them."

Because I know you won't be reading this comment tomorrow.
