It’s quite easy. You only require a few things.
- A defunct online game
- People willing to sacrifice bandwidth for power on said online game
- Exploitable userbase with PayPal accounts and too much money
It all started out harmlessly. Crono asked for donations so he could keep on paying bills for running PSO. Sounds fair and square. Then he added something nifty for the players so they’d be more inclined to pay.
So he rewarded players by adding them to the special group on the server which would give them boosts to the EXP- and Droprate. Sounded like a fine and fair deal at the time. Crono received money to keep the bills paid and the users could keep playing AND received some little reward for it.
As more people donated (and were not added to the special group) he became somewhat greedy and wanted more money and cooked up various schemes to get more money. I mean, the dime doesn’t just roll in when you’re sitting on your girlfriend’s couch all of the day bro.
One such scheme was to sell hacked virtual items to the playerbase. While this in itself would have been fine and dandy, this also broke one of the fundamental rules of Schtserv. NO HACKED WEAPONS
Since they were breaking their own rules, Crono employed some of his “Staff” to sell the items as he couldn’t do it openly. The issue here is that he promised them a 50/50 split but hardly kept up his word on that. He either took all of the money or gave them a small cut.
This also gave the corrupt staff free reign to ban anyone they didn’t like and who previously purchased such a hacked items as they are, ironically, against the rules and not officially labeled as GM weapons (Which are allowed even though they’re hacked – goes to show the hypocrisy going on there).

Pictures were provided by Break who informed us about the story. Now while I’m usually quick to judge this whole thing really begs the question of who’s more guilty (and in addition, more retarded). The one exploiting the idiots or the idiots being exploited by a mexican (retard).
