    Just to inject some factual information:

    1) CCP have taken notice of the the issue.
    2) So have the CSM.
    3) I personally I am very content with the direction the resultant discussion took. All my concerns were dealt with, and the CSM has a unified position.


    So nothing will be done to Erotica 1 then, except maybe a slap on the wrist and possibly some revision of the EULA.


    You could make that interpretation


    Can you stop talking in codes and with a politicians tounge??


    Everyone is getting handjobs.

    Yet again avoiding a very simple question. You seem to do that a lot these days.

    A simple yes or no and short explanation as to why will suffice


    He would have to stop scamming on his mains.


    My plan all along was to stop isk doubling/bonus rounds in the unlikely event I would be voted in. Imagine the fear in highsec carebears everywhere each time a "CSM Erotica 1" says "Hey! I have an idea!"

    Long live the Code.


    Imagine the fear going through ever gankers/scammers heart, if you get banned.

    Pretty big fear bets you are taking.

    thewy got something for something they did (the scam). That's not something for nothing.

    Giving a guy isk and expecting double in return is getting something for nothing (in game and in real life, just ask any nigerian prince). Which is why it doesn't really happen. Someone who wants to give you money will just give it to you.


    But that guy did sing a song and read some of those speeches, and got no ISK in return, not even 5 ISK, not even 1 ISK.

    All I see is a greedy corporation promising their employee they will make lots of money if he works hard, then the corporation pulls out the rug and runs off with all the ISK and assets.





    No. A corporation you work for owes you a wage for doing that. If they don't you can sue them.

    The game show about singing you knowingly went on never owes you a thing. You can try to sue them if you feel like wasting your own time and money.


    Well no further use arguing, I suppose logic helps protect us from harm and helps to lead us to greener pastures.

    Good luck in the future and try to fly safe.

    Everyone should understand this. The victim was only there because his assets were on the line.
    no, Sokhar was there because of greed.

    He abusec Erotica 1 in local before trying the ISK double and then his greed took over.

    His responsibility 100% for his choices.

    Erotica 1 never approached him. He began the entire thing as anyone does that tries an ISK Doubler. He added the extra bit of abuse in local just for his own reasons though.


    And that's it. Where ti not for his greed, Sohkar would not have been in the bonus room to begin with. People with sense know that you don't get something for nothing.

    This thread is just full of people intentionally blowing this way out of proportion because they just want to see Erotica banned, and they know if they don't exaggerate his crimes and blatantly make up new ones there is just no reason for CCP to ban him.


    True
    Let's hope CCP exercises patience and reason in this, the most damage was done by Ripard Teg because of this PR stunt and because of it now they have to make a choice, and it won't be pretty.

    I'm not claiming it's fair to ban E1 for this, I'm saying CCP can and should do it to protect their bottom line.


    except they shouldn't, to appease the public and mob they would screw the others.


    There are some pretty strange points of view so far. Its gonna be very weird when CCP makes their announcement. Not even sure I want to be around when they do. Might be best to wait for the dust to settle then watch the documentary over it a few years in the future.

    I am not even sure, if this game can be considered a mature player or adult one anymore. I wouldn't even be surprised if CCP just used gibberish to communicate their decision.

    Cool, almost to page 50. I have the greatest level of respect for this awesome game CCP lets us play. If Hilmar posted in this thread something like "Hey Ero, a lot of us think the bonus rounds are really funny, but we would prefer if you did xzy differently, maybe start a bank instead," I would totally honor his request.

    So many people up in arms over something that happened awhile ago (and widely read on www.minerbumping.com in a 4 part series) because some guy named Ripard? posted something.

    Instead of the "to the stakes!" talk, let's do what CCP falcon asked early on and remain civil. Thanks.


    Do we get bonus ISK for doing what CCP falcon asked? I only want to do things that give bonus ISK.

    … I have my own opinions on this too.

    It would be really interesting at some point to hear them. CCP’s policy at the moment is clearly not to intervene (otherwise it would have done a long time ago: this is by no means new behaviour on the part of E1), but it would be interesting to know how happy you guys are with that as a modus operandi, and whether you think that a change would be feasible/desirable.


    I don't think CCP had the bonus room in mind when they crafted their game policy.

    Or a policy in place in case the bubonic plague finds a way to spread and contaminate through emails.

    I love how all the Americans are quoting bla bla lawyer talk when they forget eve is a multinational game. Who cares? The victim got trolled hard and they responded with death threats and vulgar racial slurs. Quite literally Erotica has more legal precedent to take Sokhar to court and or file a restraining order. Cause guess what? It's all on tape.


    Very true statement, lots of Europeans complain about our US torture program, but it hasn't stopped it or solved it.

    Good observation on how it is hard for countries to stop other countries.

    Iceland just made themselves their own digital currency as well. All the more resources to provide a safe haven and different rule set for internet trolls.

  • Hello CCP, could you please explain The Bonus Round rules to me? in EVE Communication Center

    Is it about getting better reprocessing in stations for mission loot?

    Erotica1, fighter for freedom and against Tyranny. Who in hell would have thought that LOL.


    As I said before, it's not when the popular handsome hero is on trial that our dedication to justice is tested. It's when the unpopular, ugly, awful unpleasant defendant needs a fair hearing.

    That's when we really see who cares about doing what's right.

    It should speak volumes about the community's state when a CSM candidate is defending these kind of actions.


    I'm not defending what erotica1 does

    I'm defending his right to fair treatment and due process according to the rules.

    I'm sorry you're unable to see the difference, but the difference is there nonetheless. I sincerely hope that you never have the occasion to experience it in reality.


    Well what are the rules regarding loopholes? Does CCP admit they were outsmarted by erotica1 by him having conversations through non game program with another EVE player?

    Maybe CCP should clarify those loopholes then see what should happen to erotica1 or so.

    Besides if erotica1 did outsmart CCP through that, what is wrong about setting up character purchases and ISK selling on programs outside the EVE client.

    I should be able to exit EVE, go to ebay, which isn't owned by CCP and sell my character and that is all legal, since it is outside CCP's hands.

    Also since character trading is illegal, I should be able to reclaim my character through CCP giving me control to it again.

    That would be a scam and CCP couldn't punish me for it, since all the TOS breaking happened outside the game as well.

    That is a harsh slam, hopefully CCP comes in to mod this thread. That is too hot for just ISD to handle.

  • CCP write of $21.4M worth of code - Taking bets on whats been killed in EVE Communication Center

    Well its just gonna be harder for CCP to buy Iceland now with this setback. Too bad, Hilmar will just be another normal leader by the time he makes enough again to buy Iceland.

  • CCP write of $21.4M worth of code - Taking bets on whats been killed in EVE Communication Center

    The paper states at the bottom of page 23 that in 2012 millions were lost to depreciation of EVE online only. Then in 2013 it states Dust 514 and EVE online are responsible for the huge million dollar hit.

    Also the paper shows the retained earnings CCP had and it was above 30 million I believe and they used that to cover the huge loss.

    The only hard part is the loans CCP has to still pay off, without the nice extra income CCP was to make off of DUST, but they have enough cash and earlier profits to pay those off. It just more boring now, instead of fun and unpredictable.

    I asked it, but unfortunately geeks gonna geek and the point of the question was drowned in talk about "fairness".

    It is kind of ironic though

    In Trebor's fight to minimize the effect of the blocs, he has handed the CSM to them.

    Honestly, I'm not sure about "meet cute stories" from many people at all.

    All I know is that pretty much everyone I met when I was 'out' at 18 in 1983 is gone. And a majority of the people I met in San Fran in 1995 when I moved there are gone too.

    Edit: The worst was in the mid-80's when we started burying people from High School whom we had no clue at the time were gay of course. Finding out that way is pretty hard.

    Seriously, hardly any personal connections to the past, at all.

    It's kinda shocking I'm still sane, tbh.

    there should be a musical about this!


    Be a cool song, have a strong chorus of singers, that slowly lose voices over time, till all is quiet.

    Maybe even good enough to be put in the lion king hopefully.
