The psychology of griefers
Via KillTenRats I found this great article explaining the psychology of griefers on Wired. Quote: “The way that you win in EVE is you basically make life so miserable for someone else that they actually quit the game and don’t come back.” Which goes a long way explaining why games in which you can grief somebody that hard never have been financially successful. In order for the griefer to win, the game company has to lose a customer.
