Five biggest moments of MMO history listed

by: Chuck -
MMO Crunch has listed the top five most memorable events in the history of MMO's.  It's a pretty good list and includes the Leeroy Jenkins and Corrupted Blood incidents from World of Warcraft, the big heist of ships from EVE Online last year , and coming in at #1, the assassination of Lord British in Ultima Online.  I still remember reading about the Lord Britich incident because it was such a major coup.  Lord British (Richard Garriot) is one of the founding fathers of the gaming industy and to see him get killed in his own game was pretty entertaining.    There's a great write up of that event as well as the full history of Richard Garriot and the game industry in the book Dungeons and Dreams.

Thanks to Game|Life for the info
