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.

That's absolutely ridiculous, there's no proof whatsoever that CCP was involved with this, and there's no reason to believe they were

After pretty much every single exploit/cheat that has come up in EVE thus far, it is not an unreasonable assumption that there is an employee involved in this mess.

I played Eve for about 3 years too. The beginning of the end for me was when I realized how horribly gimped/unfair the research system was in Eve, essentially how the T2 BPO's were distributed. Supposedly it was all a "lottery" based on how many research points you had. It was a bunch of crap. Every time I think about how much fun the PvP was in that game, I think about how much bullshit there was in the economy (a T2 BPO is literally a meal-ticket in and of itself). And, when they're all going to a couple of the large alliances with which the devs are involved, well, fuck it.

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.

People at CCP were using this "feature" for years then turning the profits from the duplication for real world money, and all the major alliances, just shows how much this game is so tainted.

The world of Eve Online is made for people to cheat and steal including the developers, get a full body condom out before playing you will get sticky, and the "CCP moto if you aint cheatin you aint tryin!" is something that you need to think about before you waste your time on this game, only good news is the numbers of active accounts are dropping.

Eat a bag of dicks CCP and go to hell, its warmer then Iceland.

If you have a complaint, find a legitimate thing to bitch about, don't start making up facts to suit your ill demeanor.

Bitter? How about keeping your clearly biased crap off the board? I play legit, and I've got two characters in mining barges. I don't need to exploit to try.

Thank their all knowing economist for all of the above, 2 months ago you'd be wondering why this guy hadn't been placed in charge of the icelandic financial system of working practice, given his god all knowing greatness.

Maybe not ehh

I really feel sorry for CCP on this one. They won't be getting as hefty a bonus check due to this "exploit" being "exposed". Interesting how they noticed my extra 50M isk wasn't legit...and they were right. The difference was that I wasn't giving them the pay to play deal. Silly me!
