Closed Map Experiment

    This is hilarious that its gotten so much attention. Eurogamer even made an article about this. I took one look and knew it was obviously fake. How gullible are people? Seriously?

    You're taking this in a literal sense. The fact as to why this has gotten so much attention is the morale value and the prospect that it could be entertaining to redo and enact to see if this is possible. How humanity eventually destroy itself with limited resources, it's not as though we're gullible. You can't even prove the story is a fake.

    Eurogamer talked about this in the literal sense, and I'm pretty sure that the OP was intending it to be a literal sense, not the fun of the experiment. I don't care about the philosophical ideas of this, those are obvious. Its the experiment itself being true or not. How does the fact of believing in something that's obviously fake, down to the terrain formations, the fact that all 30 people wished to stay anonymous, that there are only a handful of screenshots, and that the OP only has 9 posts prove anything to it being true? Sure you cant prove its fake, but then again someone could say they walked to the farlands in 1.7.3 and you couldn't prove that it was fake. This is highly unlikely, and most definitely is fake. And in my opinion if anyone believes a ridiculous story like this they are gullible.

    Attention!

    I understand there are a ton of questions, concerns and interest with this experiment. I am here to say that I have accepted an interview with PC Gamer and I'm hoping their questions will cover any thing you guys want to know. I will post it here when they publish it.

    I fail to see why it's so "obvious" that this is fake.

    ok new experiment idea.

    same size of map except with new minecraft version, NPC villages, and dungeons.

    as you watch the experiment play out, record it for youtube and post the results afterwards.

    Wow a massive timelapse for this would be epic, also is there any chance of a map download?

    ok this story is belivable but there are a few problems i have with it
    1. where the hell are these 30 people? why would they want to stay anonymous? its not like they committed murder.
    2. what version was this experiment taken in? i find it rather odd that you did not tell us that bit.
    3. as someone said before why was there still iron left in the screen shots?
    4. why strip mine? its so un-efficient with limited supply.
    5. Where there monsters on the map? if so why didnt anyone make any mobs spawners?
    6. why couldn't the merchants guild as a whole attack the griefers, they must have outnumbered them easily even if the griefers were worth something to them.
    7. how did the dwarfs survive? as we all know there is no food underground so i find it hard to believe that they didn't have any grass hidden away.
    8. in one of the screenshots why did they only have a 2x2 peice of grass if they knew it was so important? why didn't they expand on it?
    9. Why was glass important? i know its rare but how is it important?
    10. arnt buckets reusable? if so why didn't they just build another nether portal?

    now im not saying this is fake but the evidence of either stupidity or un-organizational is quite obvious

    Me and JK Mittens are going to act out this scenario while recording it. Head to this post for more details: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1440195-volunteers-needed-for-a-minecraft-experiment/

    We've already got one here. Still looking for administrators and recorders.

    Real or not its an interesting read. If this experiment was a copy paste maybe it was real from the start and just copied and edited or maybe it was 100% fake we may never know. But really with a huge wall of text its hard to just read it all let alone find thigns to pick out in it. I did think the grass block was some form of personal power in a way that made them feel special ect (if it was real) but yeah I did find it odd the stripmine had no way up and was flooded with lava....

    So maybe the screenshots are fake....HOWEVER.....maybe the story isnt....it may be a copy paste but we dont know if this was ever real to begin with or just a story.

    In short real or not it gave an interesting read and made me think of how people would react after if it was real. I was more lost in thinking the aftermath with the same players then if it was real or not. If real players had gone though that and the walls fell then what, I think ill just file this under brain-candy.

    I'd want to see the destruction myself, can you make it so we can see an overview of the map? or maybe a map download?

    Seems a bit harsh to say that until it's decisively proven one way or another.

    Holy crap. ****-ass griefers rock.

    They really did a clever job.

    I was thinking about making the map available for download. Any interest?

    Yes

    I have sufficient evidence to prove it's a fake.
