Around 105 accounts with direct ties to RMT (Real Money Trade) operations banned permanently
Between 1-3 trillion ISK in assets siezed permanently
Around 500 billion ISK in RMT transactions reversed

Update: Since this blog was written this afternoon we've taken out another 365 account bot/rmt ring. No estimate of assets yet.

Step in teh right direction... only took a couple... years?

Does the same hard line apply to botters? It's the botflation I'm more concerned about.

Just as a rough guess I'd figure at least half of all supercaps exist due to botting.

Whatever "dev" it was that removed the pod squish sound probably never even logged into the game.

About time, really. Hate when botters and RMTers are allowed to ruin a good game.

I will drink to this. Keep up the good work.

Am I a bad person for having enjoyed this sentence as applied to the poopooheads known as botters and RMTers?

"We fully intend to twist the knife on these kinds of operations and will utilize whichever mechanism we believe will cause them the most pain."

ahhh yeah, yes please. time to start checking a few forums for tears.

So does this mean market prices are going to normalize a bit? a.k.a. flippin' PLEX prices.

I aint got no supercaps but I do have 2 eyes. OK I have 4 eyes.

Then I shall pretend like in the "Joe did business with the enemy" picture in the blog, the Token RMT Tardface = Joe, and Sreegs = very large scary man, and Joe is about to have a Very Bad Day.

Also, remember, when you ban an RMTer you might literally be killing someone's mother (also, i hope that guy has now been banned, can't be arsed to confirm personally)

Agreed. I played Devils Advocate but in the long term I support you guys on this, CCP.

"Long Hard Slog" was the core phrase. You aren't expecting this to be easy and the pressure from the community will intensify as certain things become grossly over priced as a result of shortages. Botters and RMT have had a decade to sink thier claws in to EVE. It won't be sunday sunshine ripping those claws out.

I'd love to be able to game these guys out of EVE but in 7 years I have failed to do so. TY for stepping in.

My favorite part is:

Daily, retrospective bans, and ISK + assets confiscation

Yummy, crunchy RMTbotters for breakfast...

Cheater tears are even better than griefer tears. The downside, though, we don't really get to to see them. Well, unless someone scares up some whine quotes from RMT/Botter sites.

It's not against to rule to post those, is it? Just some whine quotes, I mean.

Keep it up.

Nothing clever at this time.
