In eve you can't really trust anyone, sad but true. I have been fortunate to have a number of friends who also play/have played this game and though the added trust of knowing each other we have come on a long way.

The best you can do is just try to be really careful about who you let in and what you give them access to. Most corp thieves in my experience tend to be too keen to play their cards and will leave once they find out it'll be months before they will get a look into the corp hangers let alone actually have the rights to remove stuff.

As to griefers attacking corp members this is someting I have yet to run into. But having put a little thought into the matter, I might be wrong and I'm not going to put this to the test but I belive you can't attack alliance members. So have your own corp with just you and your trusted members if any and have an alt run a recruitment corp within your alliance and put nothing in that corp thats attractive to griefers.

Why does this sort of things happen in EvE?

Impunity, your enemy can dock up and log off, you never catch him. At the same time, your enemy can be playing on other accounts.

If only you could hurt logged off characters, or somehow plot assassination when somebody is docked.

Then Karma and Punishment would be serious business. Today, money stolen can be easily moved to another character. Your enemy keeps his identity, but switches body, immortal. Also, his body can not be hurt, as long as he stays docked.

This post sums up why the 'best' work with DCM inc.

WARP DRIVE makes eve boring

really - add warping align time 300% on gun aggression and eve becomes great again

Hahaha, what a fail attempt at trying to flame shame me. Obviously you must not understand what the 'wink' means at the end of my statement. Either that or in your haste at trying to flame shame me, you completely missed the 'wink'. Oh yeah, I'm proud to be in NPC corp.

Lol

Anyway, what's really funny is that your 2 year old Goon character has no battle record at all, win or lose, yet you post like you're some sort of big bad PvP'er with ton's of solo kills. Seems hiding in a large player made Corporation / Alliance is definitely the best way to stay safe, right?

True, no place in Eve is truly safe, except when docked in station.

I must say your battle record is very impressive for a 1 year old Goon character.

Shocked

Oh, I see. It's mainly from PoS gang banging.

When a child gets bored, he picks on his little sister.

When Goons get bored, they pick on other EVE players.

Share the misery. Both will have an excuse and a one liner to justify it but it's the same thing.
OP did what the little sister did. Acted like a victim, got frustrated because the unavoidable truth is, there wasn't much else they could do.

The title is accurate though. it is all about the trust and the willingness to abuse it. The mechanics exploit the demand to trust strangers, the bored players exploit the demand to trust strangers.

And you sure like hitting that space bar.

For some reason this feels like Deja Vu. Is this another Salazar character?

Well, even if it's not, here's some Ghazu 'Emotes'.

Why does anyone want to be near anything that they are trying to kill?

Sorry to bring a ray of RL in here, but I was taught not to take a knife to a fight where the other guy might be able call in an air strike.

Oh. That's right, this isn't RL.

You should call him bad names or something. Really bad ones. In Local.

As I said, it was my fault it happened. No denying that. I thought this might act as a warning to others, though.

There are still several things I don't understand about the incident, and this thread, though.

1. I thought it was illegal for corp members, especially fleet members, to destroy ships and pod people in Hi Sec, but Concord did nothing. The Goonie stayed in the system, within 100 km of the station where this happened, for some time. Concord never showed any interest.

2. I still can't figure out why anyone would be interested in the ship I was flying, or how it was fitted.

3. It seems that several people mentioned that the character was several years old and a hot-shot PvPer. Neither is true. As a player, I started in July, 2009, but I've never really been a PvPer. Until about 5 months ago, I was primarily a miner, and I had never run into this kind of situation before. The character this happened to is still less than a year old. Fairly low skills, etc.

Sorry, I may have missed pertinent posts in the middle of this thread, but...

1: There is no penalty for attacking a corp member. This make the common practice of testing fits against each other possible.

2: There is interest in your fit because people may be trying to figure out how your missioning ship was popped outside a station (as your OP indicated)... wondering why you didn't just dock up.

3: I don't think character age (or your time in game as a player) is very relevant. Some people never learn that the trick to EvE is not distrusting everyone... the trick is learning how to discern who is worthy of trust and in each case just how far that trust should go.

That being said, I'm still fairly sure this is a troll (albeit not a bad one), as it is difficult to believe that anyone would be foolish enough to kick members in good standing from his corp without good reason. Smile
