A while ago I was told how one of my team mates (quite a young kid) was hired: "he did a screenshot mode for Battlefield, and DICE just decided to hire him. Then they realized he was too much of a hacker for the gameplay team, so they gave him to the rendering team 🤷🏻♂️".
Today I discovered he's not only a hacker, but a semi-famous hacker at that! https://kotaku.com/creator-of-amazing-division-screenshot-mod-swiftly-bann-1822848988
Fucking kids these days. They're doing good shit
@jon_valdes oh man that's awesome 🤩

@halcy yep. Not many left from the old guard, but they try to keep the spirit alive 😛
