What's the matter, GM Thunder? Did you get recruitment scammed by a member of the CFC alliances and decide that you should instead change the entire rules of the game?

Scamming has never been against the rules in EvE online and this is a blatant, transparent abuse of authority from someone who is obviously biased because they are actively playing a game they should be administrating instead. You should be ashamed of yourself.

CCP, sometimes you **** up.

Then you do something like this.


In other news, TEST is now disbanding, we would rather play Hello Kitty Online.

Supported.

I find it hilarious that we still have rogue GMs running about making up their own arbitrary rules. Hey thunder didn't nobody ever tell you the cautionary tale of t20?

EVERY MORNING I WAKE UP AND OPEN PALM SLAM A VHS INTO THE SLOT. IT'S CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK AND RIGHT THEN AND THERE I START DOING THE MOVES ALONGSIDE THE MAIN CHARACTER, RIDDICK. I DO EVERY MOVE AND I DO EVERY MOVE HARD. MAKIN' WHOOSHING SOUNDS WHEN I SLAM DOWN SOME NECRO BASTARDS. NOT MANY CAN SAY THEY ESCAPED THE GALAXY'S MOST DANGEROUS PRISON. I CAN.

why is a GM interfering with a (even if it was a) scam that doesn't involve real money trading? they say this a sandbox or CCP has been lying to me all these time?

new player here, i've only been in the game for a couple of months and one of the reasons why i did chose this game over any other mmos out there is that this is a sandbox. if we are dumb enough to get scammed, it's our own fault!

Are CCP planning to change the title to World of Eve on the upcoming winter patch?

bolded the important part. CCP is pandering to the wrong demographic with some of the changes, but they're getting better (see: Incarna vs Winter Expansion).

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

It would be good if a CCP employee could give their line on this and whether this is a legitimate change to the recruitment channel rules or a GM overstepping their authority, and a confirmation of its reversal if that's the case.

If it is a legitimate change, I'd like to state my dismay and disappointment in this change.

I'd like to say I'm 100% behind this decision. For too long entities such as TEST and Goons have exploited the trust of the playerbase, and inflicted misery for their own amusement. This is why I'm leaving TEST and joining Xystance's 99% alliance.

My new corporation, Madness and Danger Offensive (ticker:MADOFF) will explain and educate about recruitment scamming, lotteries and "investment banks"; the average player will not only be more savvy about the darker corners of Eve, but eventually will be able to turn the tables on the scammer with their own scams.

For free logistics and transportation to our headquarters, courier contract ships and items to me in game. Buy-ins for percentage of profits from the MADOFF Lottery are available at 250 million per share, please make the donation reason MADOFF LOTTERY. Those interested in our current venture capital start up corp, Madoff Investment Securites convo me in game.

Together we can beat the scammers!

Out, out, MOTD! Life's but a recruitment scam, cried by a pubbie that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by GM Thunder, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
