Does CCP play EvE?

My question is do the people who helped create EvE online
As known CCP play the game? And if they do are they in an
Alliance with players that are not CCP? If so which alliance are they
In and what kind of power do they have since they are CCP?

I've always wondered if they play the game?

Yes they do...They do events, more than playing.

AFAIK they are allowed to have alts like you or I so they can play the game, but they can't do certain things like suicide ganking. They also have to play batman and keep their real identity a secret, because devs can't have known alts. Also if you join CCP then you have to put your current account(s) in a stasis of sorts, and you can't access it until you stop working at CCP.

I heard this information almost two years ago so it may be out of date. Of course there is the possibility that this information is completely wrong too, because I read it somewhere on the eve wiki, which was a little hectic and untrustworthy back then.

This is still the case yes, also added tidbit: CCP employees aren't allowed to scam/corptheft either on their playing account. Neither are they allowed to inform their corp/alliance of upcoming changes that aren't known, or game-information that can give their friends an advantage over others (by examples telling m to invest in marauders because nexy patch will enhance m greatly, skyrocketing demand)

Normally the Internal Affairs section in CCP watches over this (was founded after the T2BPO debacle)

I wonder if any CCP alts played in Erotica 1's bonus room. That's an interesting thought.

I don't think CCP player alts should be restricted from doing things that normal players are allowed to do.

You need to get into the darker side of EVE too.

I'd love to have a CCP employee AWOX me.

Can you actually PvP or are you forced to only play the PvE aspect?

Yes, CCP employees are allowed to play Eve but they have to put their characters in Goonswarm.

They can PvP.

Otherwise it wouldn't make sense for them to do PvP-related balancing.
