Some history- I have played since 2006, I flew alongside BoB in the old days, and have been part of a ton of big alliance things and small things alike. I have over 200 million skill points and I used to have over 150 billion in isk and assets. To some that is a ton, to others, it’s not worth mentioning its so low. (goons)
I have a rock-solid system, I do not leave it on, and I have a firewall and good security software. I look at my neocom II app in my phone as I expected a skill to complete and alas… it’s not updating. I assumed neocom II was messed up. I called a friend who I got to play eve years ago, and he said his was fine. I tried logging in when I got home and I could not.
I noticed that the email associated with the account was new.
I put in a ticket and freaked and waited…and waited…and waited…(slowest response in history- other games I play have a 15 minute response time and friendly folks-but I digress)
Now- while I waited in absolute silence, I read some crappy articles online about CCP policy etc. I changed all of my passwords and ran some diagnostic software that came up empty. I called my pal over who built my machine, (an IT manager of a multi-billion $ company) he snapped his thumb drive into my pc and ticked away for a bit. He said my system was clean. Any breach had to be on CCP’ part.
So, I waited and waited and finally when I get a response, they said to set an authenticator and its all my fault- too bad your corp is gone, too bad all you isk and assets are gone…too bad you have zero isk- even though we know where it went. Sorry too bad…you suck, and do not appreciate you as a customer (my words-translating their comments)
All my research shows that the data breach has to be on their part. I wonder how many other people have had their accounts at CCP breached?
Now they say their policy is the “too bad sucker” “its in the eula- ha ha you lost eve” But aside from all of that nonsense…I ask you the readers to tell me your thoughts on these ponderings :
They can easily see that the dirtbags from Sweden stole my account, emptied it, bought skill extractors and transferred everything…seems an easy trail to follow. I know at least a dozen guys who I talk to on steam that have accounts that they have not accessed in 10+ years and claim they never will again that have the old T2 BPO’s on them. I have begged them to come back if anything to give me the items…they are never coming back. So they claim that giving my items back would be somehow disrupting the system of the sandbox, but there are trillions in dead accounts…and I know a guy who has fallen asleep ratting and got back a half dozen faction fit golems from nothing …just because he put in a ticket and said it was server lag. those 6 golems did not break the system…rolling my account back won’t either…
But enlighten me, teach me why a person…a customer who has given thousands, gets his account hacked- on CCP’s side in my opinion…can not get reparation…of pretend pixels? as of now, I cannot even play. Hard to buy a ship with zero isk?? Cant rat with a rookie ship, level 4’s in a shuttle…woo hoo…count the cash rolling in…
So their fix is to give me a 200+ million skill point character with nothing…I can start in the tutorial and all 12 years are gone. Do they really think that is what I will do?
So apparently CCP has gone the path of Blizzard- they have their little ap game for phones to do the microtransactions, they are now a pay to win game- as you can buy anything in game with plex…so maybe my time has come to an end. 12 years of subscription…finally ending…because they just do not care anymore …they want microtransaction and plex purchases…not loyal subscribers
**edit- since some of my friends who commented some logical things- their crappy policy is to prevent upsetting the economy in their super sandbox- when they have mechanics that allow goons to make trillions per day with their super cap mining in 0.0 - my measly assets mean nothing to them…they just do not care at all.
