Today is a glorious day for EVE players! We prove that are not only backstabbers, thieves and jerks but we do it all with a caring heart.-B!

O.o

Bahahahahahaha....*wipes away tear* Yeah..say that enough and maybe even you'll believe it eventually.

Patting yourself on the back because somebody else donated some cash? mhmmm...fairly typical EvE fanboi response.

You do realize that it's not only the EvE community doing this, yes?

SOE-$25,000

Tall Trees-$20,000

Frogster-$55,476

Zynga-1.5 million

I will say one thing for CCP though...at least they didn't take the Blizzard/Activision way out and just ignore it. Biggest MMO out and they can't be arsed.

Yeah, got it confused.

So looking at the latest news we know now Blizzard made at least $2.2mil from the charity pet. I still think it's a shady move to only donate 50% of the money made and I actually applaud CCP and Sony for donating lots of their own money instead of only half of what they could squish out of their playerbase.

Matters to me, because it's really donated with in-game money that even can be scammed off of others or stolen. Or macro-mined. Except for the 1.6% of people actually purchasing it, hats off to them. If Karttoon did convert all the Goon's assets to PLEX for that, he stole the work of an entire alliance to do so.

So it's not all that "Altruistic" as people make out.There's even a thread on the official crime and punishment forums about scamming for Haiti-in other words, stealing other corps assets and converting them to buy the PLEXES used to donate!

Bravo! You know how to read!

The amount of money they did manage to send to Haiti relief to the amount of money they made off of WoW is a joke.

Zynga could only wish to pull in the amount of cash Blizzard/Activision is making and yet they donated $1.5 mil!

So...yes, Blizzard/Activision ignored it and sent Haiti a pittance.
