What's the meanest thing you've ever done in a MMORPG?
I've been a pretty good player. I don't cause too much trouble. The only thing that came to mind is the following:
In EverQuest II, when you lost your Internet connection while in game, your character would remain in the world for a few minutes with a title stating "Link Dead" above the name.
I played on the World PvP server. Depending on the zone, the lowest level player I could attack could only be one that is 2-3 levels under me (unless a player attacks me first - then it doesn't matter). I created a guild called "Link Dead" and sat my character in the oppoising faction's n00bie zone. n00bs thought I was afk; they thought they could get a free kill. The second they touched me.... BOOOYAAAH! 1-SHOT!
As a Horde Hunter in WoW, I saw a level 35 Dwarf running around near the Crossroads. We were just messing around, not doing anything serious, but I dropped a snake trap and ran a deer across it. I was level 70 and the deer was level 5, so it died immediately. The dwarf was 35 and didn't die immediately, but he did die. That wasn't what I meant to do, but it's what I did. He ran back to Ratchet with me running behind him doing the "Wait" emote, but he kept running. Which was probably smart. I finally rolled a gnome and messaged him to apologize. I know it's just pixels, but he looked so happy hopping around outside of Crossroads, I felt really bad about making him run away.
I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
I cybered a few times with this guy in Everquest years ago and he went all stalkerish on me in game. I ended up deleting that character and starting over however he started pestering my guild mates about where i was, what happened to me etc.. i got tired of it so I ended up getting a friend in game to send him a tell and tell the guy that I had died IRL... yeah I know..

I've never done anything mean.
I once told a clan member who was relatively new that we couldn't replace one of his items that dropped. Since he was new and since it was "lineage 2" there was a question as to whether he was one of those people who joined clans, got gear and then dropped.
Maybe, in retrospect we could have banded together as a clan and got him a new shield but at that time I was always concerned of being scammed as it went on quite a lot in that game and even to severl of our long time members.
Think the worst couple things I've done was in EQ just training a bit.
Made an alt warrior in Greater Faydark. Pulled basically all of Orc Hill to the Newbie Lift and watched the slaughter. Just a few times I did this.
Thing that my Bard friend and I did was train Veltar around Dreadlands. He had Selo's on and we'd go grab him and take off. We'd be so far ahead of him though no one would know it was us training. Just about cleared out the zone with him too before we decided it was enough.

I forget which game.
Someone I didn't know put me on auto-follow then went AFK. Too lazy to walk to the next town.
Towed the character under water so it would drown.

Me too. Of course, someone was trying to tame it after having luring monsters in to aggro me and ruin my own attempt to tame it, so it seemed like a required retaliation.
In EVE there was this one person whose character was new, and they were asking for money to replace a ship they lost when their ore was stolen and they didn't know they were being can flipped.
I sent them a contract saying it was a gift of money. The contract was labelled by the game as a gift, but the way that it worked was it took 100 million ISK from that player and gave it to me. I contracted them to give me money.
They were very confused, followed by saying something along the lines of "you took my last everything"
Another time in EVE i happened across a POS owned by a corporation consisting of one person. There were no defenses, and it was a small tower so relatively low HP. I declared war on the corp of one man, and he didn't log on the entire two days I spent burning it to the ground. It took two days because of the reinforcement thing. Anywyas, I stole the labs, and repackaged them in a station. Turns out he had been researching some BPOs, including an Obelisk (freighter) original blueprint, and several for capital ship components. I came out 6 billion isk ahead.
A day or two later he logged in, but this was after the war had already been retracted and concluded by me. He stayed on for about 15 minutes. He's still on my watchlist, but I've never seen him log in again in the couple years since then.

In UO you could stand next to a bank, have your bank box open, and then steal something from someone next to you, drop it in the bank box before guards kill you, and you'd have said item(s).
I did this once and grabbed a guild hall key from some guy, he was VERY upset lol. I didn't keep it though, I was just having fun. Stealing isn't fun for me but messing around with a sandbox system like that is.

I don't know if it would qualify as being mean, but I founded this guild in SWG and...its been awhile but for some reason we had to have one of our officers put the guild hall in his name instead of me doing it. It probably had something to do with land slots: all mine were used up between having a crafting alt and being a packrat.
Anyway, when we built the guild hall and registered the clan name, everyone was like, what the fuck? He spelled the name of our clan wrong, hahaha. Turns out the guy had dyslexia. And apparently there was a timer on changing the name of your clan. So for awhile, maybe a week can't remember, people kept coming up to us to let us know our clan name was spelled wrong. Ah man, I was pissed, haha. Funny as hell now that I think about it though.

1: My guild in SWG made a ticket requesting help to fix a stuck statue at our city. The CSR (Customer service rep) Came a couple hours later, and the leader city warned him which flagged him for PVP if he didn't leave the city within a short period of time.
He ended up being attackable and we griefed him and danced on his corpse. Needless to say we all got banned, but it was fun.
2: In Planetside, my friends outfit was doing mock gen drops/holds. I was on the opposite faction and CR5. I told my friend that I was on the way to the base they were practicing at. They were about to leave so I had my friend ask them to do another run because he felt they needed more training.
They did this and I showed up in my cloaker, set my Orbital strike right above their galaxy. When they all loaded in I had already pressed the button and it was counting down. As it was going off I ran up to my friends computer and listened to all the members in TS screaming and yelling BAIL BAIL OH GOD BAIL as all but one of them blew up in a glorious fireball.
