Off topic a little bit, but anyway..
I used to get sadly involved in one MMORPG, Pirates of the Caribbean. I was the naked dude with tight undies and covered in tats.. well if they don't
make an avatar like me, I make one then. lol
But for all it was worth, I played that, using the free limited subscription.
I remember one night I logged in, and all these other avatars were gathered on a beach. I had to go look and see what they were doing. It was the
4'th of July, and FIREWORKS were about to be set off just off shore.
I remember standing there, watching with all these other dudes from around the world, as the event happened. It really felt spinny. 99% of the people
were not from the US. We all just looked.
Having said that, I really can see how these things drag you in. I mean that was fricken awesome... And I was only a freebier. I've never paid for
it, when I got tired of having a sloot and never getting 90% of the goals done, it lost interest to me.
Just ... I remember having a home brew of ginger beer I'd brewed, and I'm a big fan of POTC movies. It was a great month. Now if I'd been give the
option of making money in there with a 'day job' you know what... I'd have done it.
As it was Paypal and POTC online were not talking, I managed to squeaze about 3 months out before they refused my access.. (I did register etc, but it
never took my payment, and I did that maybe twice lol)..
It was hell fun just zoning ouit floating around on ships too, attacking random poms.. or french.. and occasionally, pirate ships.. and if you went to
an island just off tortuga, you could fight other players.
I'd be glad to get paid for that. If somehow I could.
ahh just thinking out loud, I might even pay for that again, it was a fun mmorpg..
