Hello

Due to the ongoing investigation into the Warlords of the Deep and The Camel Empire teams in Alliance Tournament XIII, all prizes distributed to either team have been frozen and moved for safekeeping. This is intended to protect any further prospective buyers of these items in case we find that rules have been broken in the tournament and we need to remove prizes. Prize items will be returned to their original locations depending on the outcome of the investigation. Anyone affected by this should have received a mail from myself.

Prizes distributed to other teams are not affected by this action.

If you have been impacted by this and have further questions, please file a support ticket under Community.

Wow....I must say CCP, I am actually surprised you cared to do something. Usually Meta gaming like this is approved. Granted I don't know if there was any "cheating" involved such as a true A or B team, but I did hear about two teams collaborating together.

I applaud you for preventing further trading until an investigation is done, and actually investigating.

I joked on Reddit about another issue that if you tell EVE players where the Line That Must Not Be Crossed is, they'll edge up to that Line naked until one butt hair is over the line, then do an obscene dance right there until that butt hair is lasered off, all the while protesting their innocence that they have not crossed the Line.

This incident is surely proof of it.

If two NFL teams shared strategies, patterns, information about opposing teams, stadiums, the cost of back office staff, equipment, training facilities, and locker rooms -- everything but players and coaches, and those are shared during practice games and training -- with the sole strategy of getting those two teams to the Super Bowl at any cost, the NFL would surely come down on those two teams like a ton of bricks.

But technically, in EVE ATs this is not only totally legal (if it does comprise dancing naked right up against the Line), it gives the best chance of maximizing AT payout.

And all of that is assuming that Camel/Warlords didn't cross the line. Should be interesting to see where this ends up.

RIP

CCP, if they are found guilty are you going to remove thier prizes or redistribute them down the chain? If you remove them these may become the most expensive AT ship in existence.

All based on a statement made by someone who waited until they had sold their own prizes to come forward. lol.

Part of the accusation is that they did cross the line.
