True enough i remember in Canada back in 06 a guy urinated on a war memorial and he ended up doing a public apology for his actions.
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/teen-offers-heartfelt-apology-for-urinating-on-national-war-memorial-1.573944

Personally i think a public appology would have been the best course of action as they did with the Mittani.

They let him say sorry for his public antics when he was way to drunk... I dont know about you but i personally think publicly avocation of suicide is worse then a scratch that can be repaired. but alas this was not up to me.

Personally i feel the perma ban was too harsh but i do respect CCP for sticking to their guns and enforcing it... Hopefully this will lead to the statue never being defaced again.

The guys that turned themselves in only got permabanned.


How do you know, if the further actions that Falcon suggested MIGHT happen, are being kept private?

We will make several offerings to the Huldufólk (elves) to watch over it and bring mischief and misery to those who stand against us.

Instead of facing international criminal charges, potentially spending time in real-person jail, and outrageous fines to replace this, the player can no longer play this online video game. Not only that, but CCP won't tell the community who to lynch.

Yeah, he's quite lucky that CCP has taken a lighter approach on this. A much more heavy fisted approach would not be out of line in this scenario.

Remember, he didn't blow someone's spaceship up without their consent. He's committed actually serious crime. In a world that's actually real whether we want it to be or not.

You likely only have to protect it from the hoopleheads for a few days every year, so make sure it's a BIG offering the week before.

Pretty much this, and being drunk is a defence that won't stand in any court that I know of.

The monument defence force for next years FanFest will look like this.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Just to be clear... you think any country would extradite someone over vandalism? Isn't that just a misdemeanor? They might get perma-banned from iceland, but be realistic. Most people don't consider vandalism to be that big a deal (unless it happens to themselves.)

Maxim 6. If violence wasn’t your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.

So the lesson is to be better at not getting caught? It's not like any government is going to extradite someone to iceland over vandalism. Vandalism laws are barely even enforced in most US cities, unless there's assault charges involved too. I mean, it's not like there's never going to be real world crimes involved in EVE ever again.

I would definitely not mind seeing the guys beat black and blue over it, but bruises fade, but permabans are forever.


I would be surprised in the guilty party actually did see criminal charges over it, for just that reason.

On the flip side, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be TOO difficult for CCP to pursue civil remedies, doubly so if the people involved live in a country that CCP has a business presence in.

Probably depends on if this is considered a National Monument or not by the Icelandic government.

Try one of these it would certainly fit the situation well.

Either way, permabanning him from the eve community is not out of line. He's not welcome here anymore. And in a much different way than others who aren't welcome yet stick around.

CCP did the right thing. They pretty much don't care about 99% of the chaos we cause in game. When it comes down to something external, such as bringing the company into a bad light (E1), or damaging the companies physical or intellectual property, then they are obligated to address those issues.

Personally, I would be surprised if they are able to recoup the costs to have that entire plate removed, repaired, and reinstalled.


Thanks to CCP Falcon for keeping us informed. It's over with and we can get back to our regularly scheduled program.

Would you like an example or two of exactly this?

Singapore wanted the UK to extradite someone for spray painting a train carriage.

The US extradited American citizens to Canada on vandalism charges.

You've never done something stupid IRL to impress your friends? When you do inevitably do something stupid to impress your friends in the future, now that there's a precedence of the consequences for honesty, are you going to come clean?
