A Twitch streamer has inadvertently given away all his money in MMO Ravendawn, but it’s unclear whether the game’s to blame or not.

It wouldn’t be too surprising if you’d never heard of massively multiplayer online game Ravendawn but it’s about to get a lot more famous, thanks to the unintended actions of one of its top players.

Like most MMOs, you can gain a lot of in-game money through grinding, which is what Twitch streamer and Ravendawn aficionado Etup had been doing since the game’s launch in January.

Etup had made himself 112 million silver – which is a lot – but in the blink of an eye it was all accidentally given to another random player, who must’ve been shocked when they later opened their inventory.

The streamer was live on Twitch when another player offered him 18 Solid Whetstones in a trade, which he wasn’t interested in.

Etup erased the silver input from the deal, which was his full account of 112,979,563 silver, clicked accept once the amount was removed, and left the deal.

He then realised all his silver was gone, and said, ‘Hey! That guy just got all my silver. Umm…’

Word quickly reached the official Ravendawn Discord server, where a message said that the other person was a streamer as well, and that ‘we have removed the majority of the silver from the receiving player’s balance, to avoid it simply being spent in the marketplace.’

Soon after Etup ended his stream with no resolution, but viewers are calling for Etup to be given back his silver, in a now-viral Reddit thread titled, ‘One of the richest players in Ravendawn flexes his 112 million, accidentally gives it away.’

‘In fairness that box should either reset to zero if you clear it, or at least send zero as the value,’ said Tamahills on Reddit.

‘No idea what that game is, but holy s*** whoever programmed it made scamming so easy, LOL,’ added DoesAnyoneReadMe.

The Discord message said it would investigate the issue, maybe to see if there’s a reason to think that Etup sold his in-game silver for real money, which is common in these types of games.

If it’s proven it was an accident then there’s a good chance that the community calls for the money to be returned will be acknowledged by the game’s makers.
