He always falls for it too.

    Edit: Oh I also once almost got him to drive to some unkown location thinking he was going to pick up some girl.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA woooowwwww... new fav post in this thread.

    I was a kid, and UO had just come out.  I log in excitedly. 

     

    I see a pink dress laying on the ground. 

     

    I then proceed to run up to random strangers ask them if they'd like to trade, and when they said, "Okay...sure" I'd put the dress on and run around them in circles yelling, " IM SELLING THESE PRETTY PINK DRESSES!  BWAHAHAAHAHAAA! " and then run off screen. 

     

    Is this about the dumbest thing you've ever heard off?  Me too.  I was a kid.  That's the only excuse I have.  After doing this to about 40 people over the course of about 3 hours I actually started playing. 

     

    Not only is this the creepiest (dumbest) thing Ive ever done in an mmo, it is also the very FIRST thing I ever did in any mmo.  Sigh........

    I never understood why some guys think it's creepy. It's just a game. It's no different then playinga single player game featureing a girl as it's main character. You know like umm that Tomb Raider game that became so big.

    Read a guide about making gold  in WoW by pretending to be a girl.  So, I rolled a female Draenei shaman, gave her pigtails and some random girly sounding name and just started talking to other people in the starting zone.  While reading the guide of this other player and making my own character, I thought I would act really slutty and be a huge e-whore, but I actually didn't do anything sexual at all. 

    I was a freshman in college at the time hanging out with a bunch of freshman girls so it was pretty easy to have something to base my character on.

    I didn't flirt with anybody or even act in a sexual way....just laugh a lot and act stupid (gotta love drunk college girls) but sure enough some guy talked to me a lot and even ran to my area to give me gold.  From a heterosexual point of view, he seemed like a nice normal dude - just playing the game and acting like he made a new friend I guess.

    I never played on that character again, simply due to lack of interest in the shaman class.  I don't really feel like it was creepy.  Maybe if I continued to play on the character and act more feminine, it would have been.

    I think the creepiest 2 things I did in an mmorpg was in Ultima Online. I'd kill npc's for black sandles a long time ago when we were able to, heh. I remember chopping people up too and having dozens of their heads locked down on my tables in my keep, lol, good times.

    What happens when you log off your characters????.....

    Um, I don't want to go all Oprah on you here, but maybe you shoudl find a new boyfriend?

    I can honestly say I haven't ever done any of this stuff.  I do make some female characters.  Never was a problem until playing TOR just before it went FTP and some kid tried to hit on me and then got mad when I told him I was a man.

    There's a pretty significant difference between Tomb Raider and an MMO.  Your virtual character does represent yourself (or a character)  to other people.  I would guess that the people who are bothered by it or assume they know the sex of a person based on a character came to the genre from something other than RPG's.

    Eeehhh.....yea.  I'm not buying that post.  Sorry.  Just no.  That's just....no. 

  • Once I was on my warrior in vanilla WoW and was bored in Ironforge. Then a random guy ran past me to the auction house. I thought "I'm going to follow that guy." Then I followed him around his business in Ironforge for maybe 5-10 minutes before I could tell he realised he was being followed.

    Then he started running around in various places trying to lose me to no avail. He then whispered "Why are you following me?!?!" but I didn't reply. He continued trying to lose me but was unsuccesful. I then thought I'd pretend to lose track of him as he headed towards the bank by hiding around a corner and then peeking out to see where he went.

    I hid outside the bank when he went in. A few minutes after he came out, thinking he'd successfully thrown me off, I was instantly on his tail again. He whispered me "NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

    Unfortunately I had to go a few minutes later, so I had to log out shortly after that.

    This made me LOL hard. Can't get much creepier than stalking someone and not saying a word to them.  You probably gave some poor kid nightmares, you know the one where your being chased and it just keeps going and going and...

    Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

    Dumbest thing I've read in a while.. Thanks

    I think what he said made perfect sense.  I am not against guys making girl characters and visa versa because it is all in good fun in the end.  Still, it is a different manner because a) in tomb raider you do not chose your gender.  b) in tomb raider you are controlling a character with a story and her own name.  In a mmo you are creating a character to represent yourself.  c) in a mmo you are communicating with other players thus gender has an effect on that communication (where as in a single player game gender would have absolutely no effect on gameplay).

    There are plenty of reasons to make a female character.  The most popular being that you are bored of male characters, you have to look at your character all day and you prefer looking at the female form, or you associate yourself or feel like acting out a female role (regardless of if that female role is feminine or masculine).

    Creepiest thing i ever did was make one of those Loli girls (forget the race name) in Tera. Played it for about 6 levels then deleted it. I also stopped playing the game about 2 days later.

    Lolipops !

    This is funny, but genuinely hasn't everyone done this in wow at one point or other whilst bored?

    I'm not a roleplayer so what you say is bull to me.. My toon is not me.. I'm perfectly ok with the person i am in real life. I don't make a toon in a MMO to get away from reality.

    Some really creepy (but awesome) RP was going on Fallen Earth a fiew years ago.

     

    Some of us knows.... I can't say much... the nightmares still haunts me...

     

     

    ( Fallen Earth allows some great great RP experience for a MMORPG... think it was my favorite RPing in a video game of all time.)

    If you are not creating an avatar to represent your characters appearance to yourself to other players, what is happening during the character creation process?  What is its purpose?  If it has no purpose, do you simply choose at random and click quickly through the character creation screen?

      I would make friends in U.O. Get them to trust me,

    and then lead them into gang bangs in deciet where my guild was waiting to rape them.

    Can't tell you how many people where dumb enough to carry around deeds.

    In fact, that's how my guild got our first tower.

     

      To compound it I played a firey blond female half elf healer who was way on the wildside(table dancing, drinking till puking, tatoo's and piercing. snorting cocain, you name it, It wasn;t a fun night until she ended up in the emergency room.

    Think of her as cross between Jackie Chan drunken moneky meets Kate Middleton's Alter ego healer.

     

    Oh you meant in a game....

     

     

       Well I once stayed with this farmer who had this hottie daughter and.... well mayby this anit the place for that kind of story.

    It's interesting that some mmo players are deeply creeped out by what was (once upon a time) standard roleplay.

    Purpose of roleplay? To assume a role that's not just-you-with-a-different-name? Good practice, in fact, is assuming a role that's as thoroughly unlike yourself as possible.

    Unpaid acting, for fun, that's the entire point.

    For example: If a freaking enormous Tauren species with horns and a huge...battle axe...isn't (homophobically) creepy, but a pixelated female of your (real) species makes you skeeve?...  ... ... See the psychiatrist in room 604, please. You just might have some unresolved sexuality (or even beastiality) issues to work out.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
