I read the first 12 pages of this topic before posting this so if this theory has been put forward I appologise.
I see alot of people saying "Dave is teh_masterer"... I think this is definately not true and I have a theory of my own.
In Episode 9, we see the obvious power of Dave. What we also hear is that him, along with his two 'friends' have been trained by a sensei. When Dave is beating them at Street Fighter 2, they take it into RL by using their micro. At wich point Dave says they are dishonoring the teachings of their sensei. FACT.
The bad guys are obviously not afraid to use micro in public. FACT.
After the fight in wich Dave saves jeremy from the horde of micro-users, Jeremy talks to teh_masterer and is scolded for USING MICRO IN PUBLIC. FACT.
Obviously teh_masterer is training people in teh use of micro and also teaching them not to use it in public. Dave follows this same ideology. FACT.
With this in mind, isnt it natural to assume teh_masterer is Dawei's sensei? Maybe they had a falling out.
And I rated this episode a 5, because it spearheads a return to classic PP, wich was incredbily amusing.
I think its safe to say that Jeremy needs to hump his monitor to stay in shape and he only gets this kick from CnC games.
