"CNET is reporting on a massively-mono-player gaming experiment. From the article :
In what can only be described as the best thing to happen to Valentine's Day, about 12,000 people are participating in a collective game of Pokemon Red on the live game-streaming service Twitch, all by simply typing in directions in the comment box in a messy frenzy. Not every single one of the viewers is mashing in commands of course, but because anyone with a Twitch account can comment on a public stream, any viewer is a potential player in this wacky experiment.
Currently there are 80,000 players. Despite all the noise and trolls, they were able to make progress in the game and multiple goals have been achieved. Now there is a new control mode "democracy" in which the most popular commands in every 10 seconds are executed. "Democracy" and "anarchy" modes can be switched by a 75% vote."
"There seemed to be an awful lot of potential information in this summary that didn't translate to me actually understanding what's going on."
In short, it's anarchy controlled by a half-assed democracy at first, then it can go from either controlled democracy or absolute anarchy with regards to rules at any vote's notice.
AKA enjoy your time there but don't be stupid as you're likely to be on the wrong end of the bullshit.
Sounds like the scam that is EVE.
I think scams are a required part of EVE.
That is why I'm against EVE and all advertising of such.
If you get someone into EVE, you probably want to rob them.
never heard of anyone being able to control mob rule... take a minority position in a democracy and you get beaten to a bloody pulp
Speaking as a gay man, I would disagree with your position given the current changeover and Federal rulings of late.
Oh, and let's add medical marijuana user.
