It looks to me like CCP Falcon just delivered a 3-day masterclass in community crisis management. Good work, chief.

Agreed. This was handled so much better than last time.

EVE is a game about spaceships and there's an enormous amount of work to do on the in-space gameplay before players (or developers) are ready to sacrifice it for a totally new type of gameplay - CCP Rise

It's called: Control the message/narrative.

After careful consideration and consultation with CSM9, who have displayed an outstanding level of support in assisting with this issue, CCP has taken the decision to permanently ban the founder of SOMER Blink from EVE Online across all accounts, with immediate effect. This is due to multiple violations of our EULA and Terms of Service.


Thanks CCP for doing the right thing and swiftly this time.

/this is my happy face

There's a million angry citizens looking down their tubes..at me.

Are users who made use of the recent service also subject to punishment regarding the incident?

In particular, anyone that may have used the service in faith of Somer having the now invalid Approval from CCP?

As Falcon said that there is no proof of RMT you can figure it out yourself.

I get why he got banned. BUT with banning him you also banned almost 30% of all the Unique ships in eve alliance turney ships of old and other ships that just dont exist anywhere else its alot of history that has been in 1 persons assets. for a game that is built around its rich history.

so what ccp should do is hold a auction of the seized Unique ships that way ccp can get eve history ships back out there to the public AND get alot of isk out of the game back to ccp.

whatever you choose to do CCP dont ruin the eve History by removing these ships from the game

Any consideration regarding the fact that this action will most likely remove a large number of unique items from the game (namely, numerous AT prize ships and other not-obtainable-ever-again type ships that are/were in possession of Somer)?

A potential solution would be to auction these unique items through public contracts with the ISK going to CCP (ie. removed from the game). Might even help fight the inflation a bit :)

Did you participate in RMT?

If yes, you're in danger.
If not, fly safe!

Narrative control. When dealing with a communicative trend within a community without control over its direction you must have a united front visible in people's perception so folks get to instinctively focus only on the message put in place.

Besides, after having had quite a bit of headache moments, meetings and more of that, it's understable that folks who've just spent a lot of time together collectively sign off.

CCP was always going to strike first. If no one at SomerBlink was prepared for this I don't know what to tell you.

CCP should ban anyone who played Somer Blink in the last month, because they were activly helping someone to RMT.

To be honest i am glad somer blink is getting shut down, from my own investgation I have found that the bonks and mini bonks was rigged along with the 50 bill blast Attention with that said I have found that the ones that was spending RL money to buy the plex's was the ones always winnings with multi accounts Ugh, Though I have not brought this up to CCP I felt it was not my place to say something untill CCP saw it forthem selfs, now with that said what about the billions of isk spent before hand well that be returned to the honest players or its sorry your loss?

Did you even read what Falcon posted?

There was no evidence of RMT.
