Personal summary

A long time ago my father purchased JTT ADAX computer with Celeron 400 MHz and 128 MB RAM in it. Since then it made me spend countless of hours constructing cities and battling monsters.

Playing games is very entertaining and makes you feel like a hero. However, up until a point…

After some time I realised that my actions in game are repetitive and I am just doing similar things over and over again.
Suddenly, an idea struck me!

Why not automate it? I still can become an in-game hero, I gain more time to smarten my strategies and, also, I can do it for multiple games and for multiple accounts and make them cooperate… and it only goes exponential from here!

When I was 17 I wrote my first bot for a game called Lineage II. I was so fond of the program that I decided to start my professional career.

Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
