Who else doesn't purchase anything from CCP to protest their immaturity?

As title states, who else does this? I think it would be good to get an idea of how much $$$ they might lose from their immaturity. They have lost $120 from me so far, I'm the type that pours money into MMOs but I refuse to support children.

This company basically promotes griefing and trolling. They IP ban people for online stalking, but then temp ban people for trying to rally the community behind them in promoting the suicide of a depressed player.

Consider this scenario: Some jerk won't stop lamenting a player with insults because he has no empathy and enjoy the reaction. The person being insulted gets very upset over time and starts "harassing" the bully to get back at him. CCP bans the victim and allows the bully to carry on.

The amount of times I have seen such vile, horrible unwarranted things said in game... only to report it... only to see that player still active with no consequence. The ToS is a joke, quite honestly. They pick and choose what they want to enforce. The result is some people get IP banned for standing up for what they think is right, while others get no ban at all for turning on their game for the sole purpose of bullying people and laughing as they get upset.

Think about this CCP. You can't deny you indirectly promote online bullying by acting in this way. It's a good thing you allow us to buy PLEX in game. No one with a moral compass at all would hand you a dollar of theirs.

My calculations state I would have coughed up just over $200 by the end of the year. Your loss and I hope others feel the same way as I do and add to that loss.

If you don't like CCP, why are you playing a CCP game?

Also, note to Murk Paradox, the above poster is in an NPC corp lol.

What is this actually about? Or did a closet full of forum activists just happen to tip over and spill out in this thread? Shocked

Effectively CCP are doing two things.

First inversely affects the second

1) materializing new versions of old ships lost and folklore worthy
2) dropping the value of existing collectors ships (originals)

I care about neither personally. Never been a trillionaire nor do I care to try. Certainly not going to launch my rattle out of my pram about some other guy getting lucky.

I like the part where you don't realize buying PLEX in game gives CCP more money than just paying for your account.

I'm gonna bump this but for a specific reason.

I made this thread before I was aware of the SOMER Blink fiasco. Think about that for a moment. Nearly everything I'm saying in the OP is being repeated by dozens of people in the community on a daily basis since this SOMER incident.

What does that tell you, CCP? Someone makes all these negative claims about you. Then AFTER these claims are made, you go and commit actions which cause the rest of the community to more or less agree with me here.

How ridiculous, lol.

I know. I hear from so many honest players whose favorite pastime is blowing up exhumers in hisec that they've reported players who harass them with disgusting, hateful messages, but never face consequences.
