I've never played EVE, but the E3 news about the PS3 game, Dust 514, and its integration within the EVE world got me thinking... (The details about those games doesn't matter. Just know there is a crossover between the PC MMO side of things and the console PS3 side of things in the same universe.) ...But the crossover got me thinking: What if there were a Facebook Application where people could take control of monsters in UO? There would be no special hue or icon signifying that the monster is under a player's control. They would just be controlling the monster from Facebook with a special menu for that particular monster's actions... maybe specific actions in addition to behavioral settings (aggressive, passive, etc...) for when they are afk. They wouldn't be able to speak (so no smack talking). They would take over control of a random monster in any facet on any shard (to minimize abuse for easy kill of those monsters by UO players, or ganking with monsters by multiple Facebook players). And all they would get out of it is a score or rank points which would increase depending on how many active hours they put in and how many players they've killed. The higher the rank points, the more powerful of monster sets they are randomly set to control. (They wouldn't get any special item and they definitely wouldn't get anything that could be traded to actual UO players. Maybe they would get a special badge to show off on their Faceobok page or something.) (I suppose people could still abuse the system by being in constant communication with a buddy telling them exactly where they spawned *if they even spawned on the correct shard*, but it would probably be a waste of time to travel, instead of just staying put and grinding.) (I also suppose people could still abuse the system and monster gank people in a dungeon *if they all of their buddies even spawned in the same location on the same shard*, but that would be very rare... and anyway, don't you think 4 dragons suddenly coming for you would be funny? Didn't you want better A.I. anyway?) edit: btw, I don't expect this to ever happen. Just thinking out loud. Don't take this too seriously.
