How to win in on-line role-playing games
Simple. Build a bot:
The Autocamp 2000 plays online RPGs with the following rules:
- Join any group that invites you
- When in a group, follow behind the leader
- Attack any monster you see
- Accept all trade requests from other players, then give them a melon
The Autocamp 2000 talks to other players with following rules:
- If someone says something ending in a question mark, respond by saying "Dude?"
- If someone says something ending in an exclamation point, respond by saying "Dude!"
- If someone says something ending with a period, respond by randomly saying one of three things: "Okie," "Sure," or "Right on."
- EXCEPTION: If someone says something directly to you by mentioning your name, respond by saying "Lag." The many succinct expressions of the Autocamp 2000.
- (And remember to accept all trade requests from other players by giving them a melon.)
(Thanks to Henri for this wonderful story. The transcripts are hilarious!)
