ANECDOTAL PARANOIA: CCP is fudging the Solar System, Online Pilots, PLEX

So I know this guy who sits out in Jita and scoops PVP wrecks all day long.

He has told me the "SECRET" to EVE... apparently CCP is logging in "bot nets" that artificially increase Jita population and bloat the current players at log in. In addition he believes nobody buys PLEX that they are simply seeded by CCP as part of a greater sinister scheme to keep people form playing "his" MMO a Ever-quest Emulator called Project99.

Is CCP manipulating Jita's Population?

Is CCP manipulating the players online?

Is CCP giving away free PLEX?

Is CCP really plotting to destroy the life of one lonely man who wants to play ever-quest but is too cheap to pay for it?

He's an idiot. Most of jita's population is simply not undocked from 4-4 ever.

This all seems entirely plausible and not at all battsh*t insane.

Trick Question. No one wants to play Everquest.

..... The sad fact is that CCP would actually do something like this wouldn't they? Yes it's obvious this guy is a bit of a nutcase or trolling you but even so >_>

While it would be very assassins-creedish to hide a few hundred bots inside the largest local list in the game, I suspect this one might get veto'd by the guys who were trying to keep Jita running.

Sure on all cases but the free PLEX

The collective CCP Coke bucket would not get replenished if they gave away gametime on a huge scale like that.

The OP did say "paranoia" in the title, right?

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

Actually that guy you know is CCP or maybe even a CCP bot, that is how good CCP is at controlling this game. I imagine people feel like they dont make friends easy here. The friends you have are actually CCP bots to make you play this game longer.

Yeah he is CCP and just trolling CCP cause all business employees find it fun to troll the business that they work for.

I once met a pilot in a random system while exploring. He told me that if I sent all my isk to Kilrayn, that I would start finding more dedspace mods. He seemed nice, so I decided to try it. I sent all my isk to Kilrayn, and in about a week I made over a bil isk.

I sincerely recommend this course of action, even if you don't explore. Cool

I think before you post on the forums CCP should require you to take an IQ test, this would eliminate most of these worthless posts.

Or even more interesting, force players to evaluate their posts in a stupidity - word manner, graphically. If an any point the slope of the data becomes >= 1, the post is rejected.
