    Old news. The whole "gamers getting killed over X" thing goes back quite a long way. The first incident I recall was a Korean teen who was beaten to death for killing another teen in Diablo.

    Simillar things have happened in games like Everquest, Starcraft, and of course Lineage, mostly in Asia but American and Europe are not immune. Some of the stuff I've heard about Lineage players is downright chilling actually.

    No, a life-size reproduction of the stolen sword would've been more stylish!

    Psh i would do the same... the guy who got killed is just dumb for not saving every 5-10 minutes... if he did he would start where he saved last after his death... start over...



    NOOB!

    I can almost understand that.

    You've invested hours and hours into getting this item.
    You loan it to a friend, someone you trust.
    Your friend sells your property for almost $1000.
    You rformer friend refuses to share money he got by selling your property.
    You tell police, they shrug it off.

    Honestly? I'd be pretty pissed off too. That Zhu guy probably didn't deserve death, but he was a real jerkface.

    Yeah, but he should've at least started with cut-off horse-head in his bed, next to his head. It works in Sicily, even they do not rush things like that :p

    WOW!

    I remember getting really mad at my best friend when I was around 13 for erasing some data from my memory card, but I never thought about killing him.
