Too Many Deaths (zombie)
« on: May 03, 2007, 03:50:33 PM »
I interacted with a zombie this morning - DNA scanned just for grins - saw this profile http://www.urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=184786 . The "number of deaths" was  842477298. As of now, it's 842477299 (and I know where the extra one came from, it was me).

As a back-of-envelope calculation, if every UD player (say, < 1 million) had spent 3 years worth of AP (say 15000 AP) shooting this guy with shotguns and never missing, with no flak jack or body building, he'd have 3,000,000,000 deaths. So where did the other 5 billion come from? ???

Right. I'd better not tell you what I do for a living...  :-\

But even 800 million is ... a lot ...

Odd. The number of deaths says 100 now.  :-\ Anyway, I've seen insanely high numbers of kills like that before. I'm not sure if it's the result of hacking, or just a random bug.

This is a bug - it turned up on D-senitised once, although I can't for the life of me remember why it happens.
