I'm about as Fanboy for CCP as anyone gets, but CCPls:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comments/6hclx1/thanks_for_the_ships_ccp_no_more_260m_tick/

If that is legit, then that is a monumentally poor decision.

Good luck to those benefiting from multiple accounts out of this (if it's legit), but RIP everyone else.

Because, if that image is real, CCP handed the ships to every account, not just one set per ticket.

If you have a ghost training farm of 200 accounts (some people have more) and bought a ticket, then you received 2 ships on every account.

If you paid the same amount to attend, but have only 1 account, you only get 2 ships.

Hence that Reddit thread, where the OP has >150 accounts, so now has more than 300 total CONCORD ships.

Assuming of course, that the thread is legit.

I think I am legitimately done with the game. Why bother playing the game and making isk when you can pull stuff like this and make so much more?

It is legit. Falcon has even confirmed it is working as intentional: https://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comments/6h8e8d/eve_news_fanfest_pacifier_enforcer_distribution/diweh3k/?context=10000

All the best to Falcon and the rest of the Community Management team over the next few days.

Last weekend will look like champagne and strawberries compared to the rage about to come.

Well yeah they don't promote making alts, they sell tickets.

Market study has suggested Eve players are prone to scam and cheat and will rush to get rich on such an opportunity of making free billions thus the sold number of tickets will go through the roof. Pirate

I can understand the people who bought ticket and had only one account, and what disservice have CCP done to those people.

But I am also happy because they will be cheaper on market.

Those who exploited the ghost farming with SP farm alts, made a bunch of alts to farm Aurum on christmas, if onyone of them had only one ticket, it looks now like CCP is promoting those people.

They want to make "EVE is dying" meme a reality at last.

That is world class trolling from CCP!

Enrage the playerbase over nerfs to everything due to us having too much isk. Then give the people with 100's of accounts ( that have profited hugely from ghost training) 100's of free high value ships!


Well played CCP!

You couldn't make it up... are CCP actively trying to sink the ship? Not only have they turned a blind eye to a "bug" for the past 7-odd months that is netting people billions of isk, they've basically handed a privileged few a blank cheque because they happened to have an abundance of accounts (omega/alpha) to redeem from. I'm sure this isn't an enticement to get people to buy tickets for Vegas in the hopes of another flood of freebies... right?

And what a time for it to happen, right after the furore over the past few days.
