Would it be ok if I impersonate a GM outside eve to scam people?

Nope. CCP can't control anything that happens off their servers.

The day I get banned for something said outside of CCP's direct control (forums, game, servers, etc) is the day I suddenly fell victim to a hacking attempt.

There are some fleet chat logs.

you sure are mad about this, maybe you should concentrate on actually fighting, instead of crying to ccp to save your space. however, this is expected from the f1 buttan mashers that are PL/Pets.

This is not in any way GM impersonation.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

My dear boy you are mistaken, im verry happy about this, though i suppose the fault is mine for not being more clear.

Work got slow towards the end of the day today so i was browsing the forums and stumbled upon the latest DBRB saga. The fact that so many bears bought into the false GM response has given me renewed interest in scamming. I inted to use it to my favor in the future and was just wondering if im going to get sqaushed by the ban hammer.

I expect the second you bring it into eve will be the second you get nailed for GM impersonation.

100% agreed. All i have to do is get them to look at a source outside eve (twitter for example, but not what im going to use) with an ingame name tied to it to make it seem legit and i should be in the clear?

Only if what you do has nothing to do with the game, so unless you're going to pull a real-life confidence scam on them, you're not going to get anything. Of course, if you do that, you'll have real-world laws and sentencing to worry about.

um, I am new here, but isn't what you JUST SAID against the rules HERE?
You talk about "INTENDING to impersonate a GM" while on their Forums?

This is where i disagree.

The Goonswarm and various Goon figureheads have often stated that they rely on the 'meta-gaming' aspect of eve as much as any tangible mechanic and it is a gameplay element that even CCP recognizes.

So provided DBRB has been cleared of any wrongdoing on this sort of 'meta-gaming' scamming surely i can manipulate his method to affect other areas of gameplay and not be found at fault?

No. The second you bring it in-game is the second you get nailed.

Since there seems to be some confusion, Boat didn't bring anything into EVE. He didn't use anything for any sort of in-game advantage. He never claimed to be a GM.

Your proposal brings the deception into EVE for gain, in some way. Hence why it fails.


Also, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but DBRB never really directly says "I am banned here's the note". Lots of implication and such, but never direct lines.
