The Daily Quest - What's Your MMO Sin?

Posted May 06, 2015 by William Murphy

The Daily Quest - What's Your MMO Sin?

Anonymity sometimes (maybe often) makes us do things we wouldn't normally do. This is never truer for me than in any number of MMORPGs. I'm not a loot ninja or anything, but I've been known to cut my own fair share of quest mob lines. Today's quest... tell us your MMO sin.

Most people could probably say "The horrific murder of thousands of innocent, bears, boars, crabs, murlocs, and other wildlife." But that's how the game is played against AI. What about what you do to other players? Things whose real-world equivalent would quickly get you labeled an A-Hole?

For me? It's simple: I will gladly always steal a quest target kill if there's no shared tagging, and I will always try to beat someone to a resource node if there's no shared looting. For these, I could blame the faulty design (later fixed by Guild Wars 2), but even with a solution many games still make this something necessary to partake in. As far as my competitive streak goes, I'll definitely race down my target to get the rewards before I'll let some random stranger have my goodies.

So that's me. How about you? What jerkface things have you done in your MMO playtime?
