The Daily Grind: What’s your most shameful MMO confession?

Yes. This is the way the world ends.

Once, a friend of mine in Final Fantasy XI told me that she trusted me enough to confess to something serious. My brain briefly landed on the possibility that she might have feelings for me before I remembered that this is literally never the case, so with that stupid delusion out of the way I asked her what she wished to confess. She, tearfully, admitted that she had bought gil from one of the many dozen shady gil-selling sites in the wild.

As her trusted friend, I naturally informed the local GM, who marched her through the streets of Jeuno as everyone pelted her with rotten food and yelled “SHAME” very loudly. By which I mean I told her she shouldn’t do that again but that she shouldn’t tell anyone else, it’s a bad thing. And it’s true; there was a heck of a social stigma about that.

Not everyone’s shameful confession is quite to that level, of course. Maybe you just feel ashamed that at one point you made a character you thought was attractive for somewhat untoward purposes. Maybe you just behaved in a trollish fashion. Maybe you paid money for Greed Monger. Whatever the case might be, what’s your most shameful MMO confession?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
