More EVE Online Follow-up

The EVE Online Insider has further follow-up on the exploited bug in EVE Online that made the news recently. To recap, a bug in how star bases work made it possible to reuse the same raw materials in the manufacturing process, and like any good scandal, questions have been raised about who knew what, and when. Though they say a full investigation will take weeks, CCP now offers some preliminary findings, including their belief that the bug has probably existed since player owned structures were introduced on November 24th, 2004 as: "Changes to the Starbases code from launch until February 2007 are minimal and very unlikely to have caused the bug," that they still don't know when exploiting it began (but at least since the beginning of this year), that they have been so far unable to find an older petition reporting the bug, that they have found no connection between their staff or the Council of Stellar Management with the exploit, and that: "Our actions so far have included the eradication of 178 starbases that were exploiting this issue. Some had multiple reactors running in the bugged state. We have also banned all those we have found directly involved and all accounts we have found to be connected to those players. The investigation is still under way and will take a while to conclude." Thanks Massively.

Both you guys are CCP sheep, look I played the game for 3 years with 3 accounts and never cheated, you know this "Tower issue" has been in the game for years and CCP devs are members of alliances that have used it.

Why do you think they kept feeding BOB T2 BPO's, How do you think BOB got 30 Titans, and live in an entire region the best part of Eve space that was changed over the years to become better. Keep being CCP sheep and paying these idiots to stay in business, I just finally woke up after all the nerfs this year I snapped out of it.

I know how you feel, read my old posts when I actually supported this game. Its a pile of shit so are CCP, and I wish I could tell more about how I know this but I can't, just save yourself from wasting time on this game if you think its fair, and if you don't care then it won't matter, have what ever fun you can have until you run out of content.
