So, an alliance CEO lost his cool in the heat of the moment, gets the CCP boot - forever, apparently. And I’m not going to ask CCP to comment on individual case or GigX, as that matter is closed.
I’m not here to defend him or his actions and won’t comment on them.
But, as long as we’re going to hold one individual to the EULA, wouldn’t it make sense that CCP begin enforcing it throughout their game? You either enforce the EULA or you don’t - and really- you don’t, at all, CCP. I could literally give you hundreds of examples of EULA violation every day, from alliance chat to Jita and Amarr chat to just about every chat channel in this game where - according to EULA - serious violations occur minute by minute.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
Here’s a good one snipet. “CCP retains the right to reject any pseudonym it determines, in its sole discretion, is unlawful, indecent, obscene or otherwise violates standards of good taste.”
^^ Are you kidding me? There’s so many naming violations just with parts of the male and female anatomy (obscene words) I could spend days writing them all. I wouldn’t have to jump more than a few systems to find them. Do the devs, admins and CCP lawyers who write these rules even play this game?
Oh, and here’s some good one’s.
"You may not use any abusive, defamatory, ethnically or racially offensive, harassing, harmful, hateful, obscene, offensive, sexually explicit, threatening or vulgar language. (Alternate spelling or partial masking of such words will be reprimanded in the same manner as the actual use of such words.)
You may not organize nor be a member of any corporation or group within EVE Online that is based on or advocates any anti-ethnic, anti-gay, anti-religious, racist, sexist or other hate-mongering philosophies."
Have you rolled through Jita lately? Or Amarr chat? Hell, any alliance chats? Do you play this game at all? There’s entire corporation names that violate the above policy.
And again, I’m not defending anyone or asking for comment on any one one case. And people say, 'Well, what (character xxxxx ) said was much worse … No, EULA is EULA is EULA. It’s not like any of these legal mumbo jumbo rules here limits your liability, either. So, CCP, either stop selective enforcement or flush the entire document, because it means literally nothing in a game where there’s thousands of violations everywhere, every day.
