Interesting legal fact:

Anyone with an account that pre-dates the ToS change is not yet bound by the new rules, as there has been no new ToS agreement requests when entering the game.


You're forgetting that the old rules are the same as the new rules and vice versa, and they always have been.

'Rewording' thread thank you very much. Don't be misrepresenting GMs intentions in this thread X

Refusing to answer the questions presented does not make community concern go away. I'm shocked that CCP still haven't managed to learn this.

Actually NO, beeing as i am IRL Lawyer, i promise to you - "the less problematic the interpetetion" does not result in "the easier is to pass judgment"...but that's IRL law stuff and a bit out of place here, despite the TOS beeing a legal thing.

point taken.

still think there's quite the amount of wording on the ToS that could use clarification and simplification, even if you needed to hire people from the legal field to do it.

I have 2 characters with similar names. Am I going to get banned for telling people that I'm Mallak Azaria on another character?

It doesn't matter though. I don't think they're going to do anything at all now. They said the 'final word' and that was it. Cold shouldered. Very corporate lawyer style. Not like CCP at all.

Honestly I don't even see the point of talking about this. The company won't do anything until subs drop again. I'm not trying to be pessimistic, but that seems to be the only thing that gets to them...unless they REALLY wanna make Eve more safe to work at the EA model of online gaming; high volume, high turnaround, and new gimmicks to keep the volume up.

I setup 4 POS towers the other day for moon mining. One of the harvesters is stuck on 'Starting up'. This moon harvester is impersonating an active moon harvester, under the rules of the new TOS I demand that you permanently ban this moon harvester.

Because history has shown us that this works.

So, now that we know what the GMs have decided policy is, perhaps they should consider changing it, seeing as how this is not what the playerbase wants, nor is it what the playerbase thought policy was.

From what I can tell, most people seem to be in agreement that:
* Impersonating CCP/ISD = not cool
* Impersonating via homograph attack = borderline
* Everything else = OK

I can't really see any reason to not change the policy to this, as the current policy
* Assumes that people never need to use alts as part of the same identity, whether in scam or non-scam work
* Has vague descriptions of what is and isn't a "group" which will likely be arbitrarily decided (e.g. the question of whether someone lying about having paid a new order fee is impersonating a member of the new order, vs someone claiming to be a CFC rental authority)
* Goes against the spirit of the game where anything anyone says could potentially be a lie.
* Prevents a large class of scams the playerbase seems to want to exist.

It feels like CCP is not hearing the playerbase on this, and is letting some weird disconnected GM department ruin their game while they work on the next patch.

That's what I'm saying. They don't care about history. They're just doing it. They're taking a new direction and I think they don't give a damn about the long term players' opinions.

Yeah, it's a recent thing. There's a LOT of stonewalling when back in say...2007 there was none? Wat.

No, step away from the post button, we wouldn't want a ban now would we?

You'd better biomass those alts and close their accounts before even the implication you might have an alt related tangentially to a perceived scam results in your permabanning.

Pfft if spying, Intelligence gathering, and Sabutage is bannable then its black marketed. More money maybe? I wont stop till ALL my chars get banned and then i will just stop playing eve and enjoy RL. But really this is ******* stupid. Corps do this stuff IRL like similar names and logos. But the part about claiming to be a representive of someone should be legit Because It makes sense. If they believe you that is their fault. Its not even impersonation.
