Surprisingly (everyone thought he was superman especially to his own people… the same people that are explicitly crying their hearts publicly upon hearing the news), the MMO gold farming leader of the world’s only remaining hardcore communist country has finally meet his maker at the age of 69 after having been “overworked” (no, not whipping his gold farmers but is said to be going to his usual field inspection) and had a heart attack.
Back in August, reports have been made public of Kim Jong-Il’s black market operation that’s said to have hackers and farmers of gold for MMO games like Lineage and Dungeon and Fighter raise real life money from in-game currency/gold. The proceeds of which have reached $6,000,000 already at the time of the report publishing.
Although the North’s official news agency did deny such allegations, knowing Kim Jong-Il, many believe it to be true. And now that his dead, who’ll take over the pro-gamers (exploited pro-gamers to be exact) that’s been helping fund the North? Apparently, his 3rd son Kim Jung-un.
Maybe Jung-un likes pro-gaming and decides to just open his country again and compete in virtual wars through Starcraft Brood War or Starcraft 2? I’m sure they have the same genetics that’s making the South Korean pro-gamers so dominant. Wouldn’t you agree?
