We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.

Good, Recruitment scams are a leading cause of people quitting the game after attempting to dip their feet into 0.0.

Perhaps CCP would like to enlighten me as to the diffference between the CFC and the New Order, since last I checked, they were both groups of players. Why is impersonating the CFC a violation of the TOS, but impersonating one of the New Order's subgroups not a violation of it?


Yeah, this is a good example of why this is bad, unworkable policy.

How quickly is CCP going to be removing the alliances that role play as NPCs, since it is now illegal per the TOS? Will it be today?

Someone might want to tell Mordus Angels to establish a new alliance.

Instead of reworking their TOS to cover the Pizza incident (which I presume is the seed for this) they did a blanket catchall to I suppose save a crying GM team some work.

How about noting it now covers ISD and official WIKI defacement in the pursuit of a scam. Rather than blanket banning something that is fundamental to the sandbox.

A couple of guys ransomed a pilot for a pizza IRL.

CCP was unhappy with this.

I think that's the Pizza story. Unless there is another one.

This comes from the fact that there are players telling new people that they are representatives of,
for example, Republic University or other NPC corps
and ... i have this info from a scammer who did this and had a GM convo ...
because it seems to be a scam so widespread that it interferes with lore and live events, or something.
Paraphrasing this, because i forgot the exact wording.

Edit:
Definite info is that people scammed as NPC characters actual CCP devs use, which created issues. Obviously.

Okay, I think what's happening here is that CCP wants every claim of identity to be checkable using the game. Impersonating CFC is off limits now because a player can't use EVE to determine if you're actually CFC. If I'm reading this right, then you CAN impersonate GoonWaffe because it's as simple as checking your information sheet.

I'm seeing this as a way to level the playing field for people who don't know Eve's meta-political landscape. Under these rules, everyone has the tools to verify someone's claim to identity - or at least to demand said proof with an in-game source.

That sounds like an...exceptionally weak justification for a poorly written policy that bans roleplaying. It's not at all a justification for all of the extra crap tacked on.

My understanding of the Pizza thing is that pizza claimed to be a third party service which they aren't. Isn't there a clip of an alliance panel where Goonswarm had scammed a guy out of his supercarrier by claiming The Mittani was a third-party service?
