A Final Fantasy XIV player was randomly handed 999 eggs to eat, and it became a massive event

It started with a simple tweet: "Logged onto FFXIV and some guy gave me 999 eggs and asked me to eat them. I'm down to 685. On Marlboro [server] if you want to come watch."
If you play Final Fantasy XIV and have access to Marlboro, this was a call to action. Everyone and anyone who's played XIV already knows the place from the background: Limsa Lominsa (my favorite capital city!). It was only a matter of time (after some RTs) until a crowd started to form.
This is partially why people love Final Fantasy XIV so much. People will just tweet "check out my house, it's at [x]" and folks will come in droves. Producer Yoshi-P and his team smartly have expanded a ton of elements of the game that facilitate these sort of wacky adventures, and over the course of many years, those efforts have paid off.
