Father Hires In-Game Assassins To Kill His Son’s Avatars

After trying everything else and failing to get his 23 years old son to stop online gaming and find a job, one Chinese father opted to hire online “assassins” to kill his son’s virtual selves.

Xiao Feng, the son, is a 23 years old Chinese MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games) addict who considers himself to be a “master of Chinese MMORPGs.” According to his dad, Xiao spends nearly all his waking hours playing online and refuses to look for a job. He even quit his last job at a software development company after less than three months.

Mr. Feng hoped that his son would become bored of online gaming and start paying attention to his career. This couldn’t happen soon enough, so he decided to speed things up by hiring more powerful players to hunt down and kill his son’s characters whenever he signs in.

And the father’s plan succeeded… partially. Xiao did get bored of getting killed whenever he tries to play, but he remained nonchalant about getting a job. “I can play or I cannot play, it doesn't bother me. I'm not looking for any job—I want to take some time to find one that suits me,” he told his dad.

he MUST!! get rid of that child(23 year old playing all the time IS a child) or just get his pc wire or avoid him to eat or something kick him out of the house or uninstall the game or even delete his online career(reset score or xp) then all his XPs will be deleted :D ...simple things together can change ****** children


Well they didn't do there best to get there son to stop playing because soon or later they will go back to the online games.


He doesn't need to serve society as long as society isn't serving him. If poppa's bearing the burden that he created, that's tough **** for him & none of your business. If his little 3" gook **** is pullin' some kind of welfare even though he's physically fine, then stick a chunk of spent uranium inside his computer case when he ain't lookin'.
