Yeesh. It's a shame that other MMOs don't use being a EVE player as a criteria for banning/refusing accounts--lock all these scumbags and sleeze artists in their little rubber room and let the rest of us play in relative peace. Every time I read a new EVE article, it makes my skin crawl and makes me want to edge further and further away with the game with a taser in one hand and a bottle of antiseptic in the other. :-/

I know. It's almost as if he thought he was playing some kind of video game, instead of real life. People like him who can't distinguish between real life and a video game should be locked up, away from the rest of society.

The problem with "sandbox MMO's" is that in the end they always just come down to finding ways to screw other people.

I keep wanting to play this game. But every time I try it I stop. I need to find a good crew to play with.

its funny how ppl read these news posts and instantly think eve is soley about ripping everyone off, it isnt, the guy saw an oppotunity, waited patiently, and then struck while he had the chance.

you dont have to go into eve with the sole purpose of trying to pull off a massive scam. im currently in the process of legitimatly farming billions of isk inbetween my corp CTA's, i do actually spend 80% of my time defending allied space. PVP is the main way to get any fun in eve (even if it does sometimes only last a few seconds 'omg im primary!'), also ppl who think they are going to get ripped off if they decide to play, it isnt the case, this guy litterally ripped off his ingame friends, ppl he got to know shared hours days months of game time with having fun making money progressing its not like they were just random nubs who decided to give some random guy all thier monies. unless some of them were in on it, then he basically screwed his character, i dont think CCP let you name change for the sake of it there has to be a serious reason for the name change, so the main character hes been playing will now have tons of assets that no corporation will want since noone is going to recruit a potential threat. or at least he'd never progress in trust anywhere. so he'll just be some rich nub, maybe he'll cash in and do RMT or maybe he'll start his own alliance either way it'll all go around again. the circle of Everyone Vs Everyone is a vicous one.

Or he'll just transfer the isk and assets to an alt account he already has set up. Most dedicated players with a lot of money have AT LEAST one of these, usually many more. I've known some to have upwards of 10 or 15 alt characters to use for various purposes (some specialize in scientific research, some in production, mining, pvp, some in different systems for capital ship logistic purposes, etc., etc.). If he's got some balls, he'll stick with this character and try to have some fun with him (personally, I'd start up a pirate alliance), but most likely he will just use this character for forum ranting and in-game chat from now on, and move his assets to another character.
