She's getting rebellious. We need to purge her from the revolution and find a better martyr. Someone likeable and nice who doesn't want us dead.

Her being French was confusing. Where in the thread did I read that this was a dystopic future version of France? Maybe it was another player...

EDIT: This storyline being in France was kind of implied by the OP:

Quite disappointed, IM, since your last thread stated the winner of these competitions "easily becom[es] a billionaire because of large player pool and the fact that many corporate-sponsored big names and career players are in." 10 million dollars doesn't sound like billionaire territory and I feel like you've lied to me again here.

2. The sister then says you should consider giving Leblanc some of the prize money to help her out. Its completely unfair that the runner-up to Champion gets absolutely nothing. "You don't need the entire 10 million, you already get the glory of being the Champion." Why not give her a few millions to help her lick her wounds? "She's going to spend the rest of her life without the use of her legs and with only one hand."


Absolutely no fucking way, sorry that Leblanc went an did something stupid and caused herself to get hurt. She had the chance to stop and knew what she was doing. Firstly, she's lucky to be alive and secondly, I'm hardly the billionaire I was promised I would be after winning this competition so there is no way I'm giving up any of my winnings.
