The magical powers that be have imbued a teenager in Shanghai the gift of sight: he can predict the most auspicious times for you to dominate in your favorite video game. The former computer science major went viral on Weibo after a user spotted him at an internet cafe with a sign that read: “Will tell the fortune of your video game characters for 10 RMB.” In one afternoon, he had already seen ten gamers desperate for guidance.
Success in MMOs (massively multiplayer online games) is a BFD (big fucking deal). Apparently, elite Chinese gamers qualify for professional athlete visas. So any extra advice, even if it’s divined from a hipster in loafers, could decide the fate of your entire future.
