Megaupload's founder - the best Modern Warfare 3 player?

Kim Dotcom (formerly Kim Schmitz) apparently lived an outrageous life as one of the the founders of the file sharing web site Megaupload. He rented a massive mansion in New Zealand, had tons of luxury cars and it seems like he wasn't shy about having a good time. That's very apparent in his quest to become the world's best online player in Activision's hit shooter Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3.

In a video posted on December 31 on Dotcom's YouTube page, we see him online battling other players and shooting them on screen in his quest to reach a whopping 150,000 kills. Using his nickname MEGARACER, Kim Dotcom reached the number one spot in terms of kills in Modern Warfare 3 along with number one overall on the leaderboards in the Free-For-All gameplay mode.

Dotcom is seen celebrating his 150,000 kill in the game with friends, complete with a big cake shaped like a "1". It's clear that event was a very happy time in his life. We imagine things are not looking as cheerful for him at the moment. Dotcom, along with three other Megaupload executives, were arrested on Thursday and charged with piracy by the US government. Dotcom and the three other team members are scheduled to appear in court on Monday in New Zealand.

It would have been neat to see MW3 on one of the 84" or 108" LCD's they took... 84" Samsung is $45,000 USD, and the 108" Sharp's are like 100K USD... instead he was likely using them to monitor things.. Like weather, stocks, and cameras.. i would.

Furthermore, can you constitute the fact that DropBox is liable for this same action? I can share my links to files.. share my login..blah blah blah.. I think this thing is BS...straight up.

he through a party for himself it seems, and invited people over just so they can tell him good job and give an forced applause.

Waste of life.

Why? He already made a ludicrous amount of money and is (was?) basically set for life. Why can't he spend his time doing whatever the hell he wants?

This is true. I was thinking the same as the above guy but then realised this guy has made more money put together than me and 5 of my friends so let him do whatever he wants. I wasn't suprised he was some fat guy though..

besides he hasn't attained his $$ as shady as Mitt Romney and his oversees accounts. and he's running for president. Just imagine if Kim Dot Com lived here.. he'd be running for president. bonk. (sarcasm!!) they keep showing all the wow items he has. yeah so. thats that 1 % we keep talking about. albeit he was more likely a 99 %er pretending to be a 1 % er. Eitherway, find it interesting Anon hasn't taken down the take down notice on megaupload yet... you know hello this is the FBI we have illegally seized this domain
