Practical_Draconian: An EVE Online player would've stabbed him, took some of his belongings, then repeat until nothing was left.


An EVE Online player would have hobbled his feet so he couldn't run, then circled around him slowly for several hours, insulting his mother and his sexuality while demanding that he call his coworkers to raise money for a ransom.

alabasterblack: I need to consciously remember not to ask store employees how much gold something costs when I am in stores...It has happened.


Back when I was bigger into playing emulated games I would use quicksaves and quickloads a lot on hard parts of certain games or just to experiment and see what different choices in the game did.

At one point I did it so much that I actually thought to myself in the real world "I should save before I try this in case it doesn't work".

alabasterblack: CrispFlows: Stabber needs to get a better dagger - not enough melee damage.

/ I wonder how many people started thinking of prices as:
1 pennies = copper
1 dollar = silver
100 dollars = 1 gold.

// just for the hell of it.

I need to consciously remember not to ask store employees how much gold something costs when I am in stores...It has happened.

RoxtarRyan: reverend maynard: Stabbed in the chest and is only charged with aggravated assault?

My first thought. Someone stabs you in the chest, it is pretty obvious they are trying to kill you. It isn't like he cut his arm or his hand, the dude was going for vital organs.


Maybe the guy stabbed him with a remote control.

A CoD rager would've been sputtering derp and teabagging the body when the cops showed up.

A League of Legends rager would've done the same as WoW assaulter, then ragequit halfway through the stabbing.

An EVE Online player would've stabbed him, took some of his belongings, then repeat until nothing was left.

F--k dealing with the ultra serious business crowd -- reason I like single player games or compstomp with teammates options. In League of Legends I started off 9-60 in regular games, then zoomed up to a winning record by more than 60 games over .500 after I found toons that suited my style. But I gave up playing PvP in that game because the ragers were just getting on my nerves even in VICTORIES. As in WoW, some people don't get that shiat happens and you can't win them all. And no, you are not likely destined to be playing professionally against South Korea's best anytime soon.
