For all we know, this could have perfectly reasonable explanations.



Lol maybe letting Nync and Dr Volt into PL to manage your RMT wasn't such a good move.

okay I can't wait to hear them


The best explainations we have right now is that the account either ran out of subscription, or that it was flagged for doing a lot of ISK transactions to people, IE ship reimbursements, titan purchases etc.

There's a lot of ugly rumors going around, suggesting for instance that we bought 15T isk from RMT. That's just ridiculous. Why would we buy that much ISK with the amount of tech and supercaps we sell?

Until we know what's happened, any accusations of RMT are completely unfounded.

Funny thing is that they could have prevented that by asking for clearance by a GM when they got the money from botters. And that there was rampant botting in the drone regions is not news to anyone.

At the other hand it's not good sports by CCP to ignore countless of botting reports and petitions for three years to then go around and collect the ISK that came from exactly those botters.

I'm more interested in other alliances wallets because they actually hold sov. (for now HAR HAR HAR)

If you take all the sand out of the box, only the cat poo will remain.

Serious: I think its more likely that most of your "merc loan" from the past was either RMT or Bot money ( who would have guessed Lol ) and so it got removed from game after CCP found out/had prove.

If it was as simple as the account not being active than I am sure it would have been resolve by now, also by saying accusations of RMT are completely unfounded is pure crap because the PL members negative wallet would seem to confirm RMT.

To be honest the complete destruction of PL might be a good thing for New Eden.

I am glad to see CCP traded in their nerf hammer for the ban hammer.

Continue the good work CCP!

By now we've all seen the screen shot of the PL dude whose personal wallet is now at negative 75 bills. (Ouch) We've all seen it. Are you saying that somehow you've missed it all?

The only reason for you to act innocent is in hopes that the ban hammer doesn't find its way to you. Blink


You mean the screen shot of the Test Alliance member.

I do believe you spent quite a lot of :words: discussing The Mittanis ban.

Well we know that Screegs is watching the thread.

Can you atleast Confirm or Deny that the Isk was removed do to an RMT source.

Not asking for a Yes or No if PL are Guilty, just a Yes it was isk from an RMT source.

The actions of yesterday were RMT related. I won't discuss specifics or confirm or deny who may have been impacted or how.
