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.

Hey...Peter...

Leave your profile for a few days okay? We have it on good account that some Daemon Raxians have successfully infiltrated your profile. Me and uhhh, me and Crowley are going to dispatch them but we can't have you in the way while we do so. So you have to leave.

BTW...where do you keep your cakes? Don't worry, we aren't going to destroy them or anything. It's just that Daemon Raxians are known to be attracted to cakes...

So if you just tell us where your cakes are and then leave your profile, me and Crowley will deal with everything. Okay?

Thanks.

- Your friend and loyal colleague who would never betray you or anything. Knight.

Oh sure, I keep my cakes in the Vault of Doom, near the Jolly Caterpillar Avenue. You see, I had to increase security on where I leave my cakes since the *incident* a few years ago.
