EVE Online Banking Story

Massively has details on another interesting tale to emerge from EVE Online, where EBANK, one of the game's player-operated financial institutions, has admitted to being in the red to the tune of some 1.2 trillion (yes, with a "t") of the ISK that is the game's coin of the realm. Accounts in the virtual bank are now frozen, and the article outlines the mechanics of the game's virtual economy as well as details on the embezzlement and mismanagement that has head to the 1.2 trillion shortfall. They have optimistic word from one of the banks' operators on when withdrawals will be allowed and when accounts will being earning interest again, as well as pessimistic word that the full extent of the losses may not yet be fully understood.

Game developers are just human beings who happen to make games for a living. If you want to hold us up to higher standards of conduct, then go ahead
...but don't be surprised if we don't uphold them
