Auronious posted this Link to an amazing story of 2 guys who played EQ2 over at InsanityElite. A really entertaining read about two dupers who had it all then lost it all by beeing too greedy. Its everquest meets Blow/Traffic/Scarface/Carlito's Way/Resovior Dogs/Fight Club/ and all the other good movies of the type.

My favorite part of the article.

Chapter 5: Boiler Room

This is when I started hitting the distributors. You name them, I sold to them. Rock bottom prices too. There was a time in EQ2 where if you had bought any gold off the internet, it was probably a 50% chance it was from us. Didnít matter what company you bought from, we had a list of every company who bought currency and we probably hit 80% of them. Our money was spreading like syphillus at a nymphomaniac recovery summer camp.

I saw this story yesterday. Sounds like it was an amazing, wild ride for those guys. Imagine how much dinero they pulled after they started "Franchising" out to the different servers. I wish my real life MMO adventures would take a turn like that once in a while. cry2.gif

Actually the owner of the site who posted the story noted that those guys made somewhere from 100-200 grand from this scheme. He also goes on to state that the author of the story later posts that he didn't even play the game for long, His highest level charcter was 5.

I loved that part about the lawyers, that was just too good.

I liked how he duped the candles beigebigrazz.gif You can never have too many. This was a really good (and kinda funny) story.

The presentation of that story is complete brilliance, not since the Assassination of Lord British have I read of such outrageous online shenanigans. The shots of his house totally packed with Haulasian Maulers is hilarious.

This section reminds me of the movie Goodfellas, the court testimony speech in particular, where Henry gets up and starts talking to the camera.

Anything I wanted was a phone call away. Free cars. The keys to a dozen hideout flats all over the city. I bet twenty, thirty grand over a weekend and then I'd either blow the winnings in a week or go to the sharks to pay back the bookies. Didn't matter. It didn't mean anything. When I was broke, I'd go out and rob some more. We ran everything. We paid off cops. We paid off lawyers. We paid off judges. Everybody had their hands out. Everything was for the taking. And now it's all over.
