Serenity Now Funeral Gank

This has to go down as one of the most despicable acts committed in online gaming history.

The backstory is that a much loved Warcraft player unfortunately died in real life.  Her online buddies decided that it would be a fitting send off for her to organise a funeral for her in game so that they could all say their goodbyes.

The set a time and place, the put out announcements on the realm forums and they even obtained their friend’s account details so that her character could be there to receive everybody’s condolences.
So the stage was set, but unfortunately they hadn’t considered a few things about their plan…

  • Firstly: They were playing on a PvP realm where every player can attack everyone else.
  • Secondly: The venue, whilst being fitting, was in the middle of a wilderness - far from any help.
  • Thirdly: Even given the gravity and sadness of the event, there are assholes out there that won’t pass up the opportunity to, well, be assholes…
And that’s exactly what happened.  The funeral started off serenely, with a line of mourners patiently waiting their turn to say their goodbyes.  Then suddenly all hell breaks loose as over the hill comes an army of fully tooled up warriors, intent on causing havoc.  It’s hardly much of a fight, the mourners had taken off all their weapons and armour as a mark of respect to the deceased, and in no time flat they were all corpses too.

Worse than that the attackers also killed the character of the girl herself and then sat around throwing insults at her and everyone else.  When they finally got bored they chucked the video up on youtube, plastered it all over their forums and sat back to watch the reaction.

It goes without saying that after that they quickly became the most reviled people on their server – and the WoW community in general.

To be honest though, I think that that’s exacrtly what they were gunning for all along…

They are still on kill on sight lists on that server and people still form hunting parties to go after them.

To be honest, i think this is hillarious, not to say legendary as fuck. Also anything done without the goal of being an asshole is not worth doing.
