CCP Fallout

Rage. There is no better word to describe CCP's feelings towards RMT, and "unholy rage" is how we recently addressed the issue. GM Grimmi gives us the lowdown on what Unholy Rage was and how it addressed the supply of illegal ISK in his newest dev blog.

Wooooooooooooooot

Go go go!

Kick these **** where it hurts!

\o/


Edit: Did you also investigate the big 0.0 moon mining alliances? Their monthly income is hundreds of billions and I am sure that RMT can be quite a temptation to them.

Just say NO to RMT PLEX.
Bit of a freidian slip on my part.

IMO thats what the final sentance should have been.

and to put it midly your always behind the curve whith them. or have you even noticed the nice little flood of keyloging spam

and I can still find the same macro team that I reported months ago(and I sentin the logs to prove it, they just moved systems when Goons rolled through.) and in all probability what they will do is just what they do in WoW, split up the accounts and run more of them.

yet another great blog post from the devs.

and people remember, not too long ago plexes was cheaper than buying from those that keep spamming channels everywhere, not sure what it is now however.

Good work, encouraging results from CCP and interesting commentary on how the market works.

However, I think you are being optimistic about the general market being "remarkably unaffected". Mission loot, isotopes, implants and faction items have all seen steady increases in price and decreases in volume. Furthermore, the 10% decrease in market transactions may seem small, but when considering only 2% of the Eve population was banned this is a considerable change. Easily statistically significant.

Awesome sauce. Great job.


Curious about trade volume (EVE economy is just HUGE), the billions are international system (10^12) or 'american' billions (10^9)?

9200 paying accounts purged and more to get banhammered. That should shut those people up who claim CCP isn't acting against RMT because they're earning money from it. I'd say the additional CPU freed from those banned accounts is more valuable than any cash they were paying.Cool

I would have loved a report on the SWAT approach though.Twisted Evil

Well the market is returning where it should be anyway, making some professions more viable or oveerall adjusting prices where they should be in the first place.


I wonder though what is being done against macro'ing in general, including those not involved (yet?) on RMT. As they affect the game too to a point.

Billions are 10^9 in most places, including Iceland.

Still have a macro miner in my system, only this one is not RMT, just playing in cheat mode. How do I get rid of him if it took CCP 2 years to get rid of the first ones?

These RMT'ers don't give a crap about CCP, Eve or the players and would happily run the game into the ground. Excellent job.

It did not get 2 years for CCP to get rid of first ones, you allways would see bans here and there but nothign as major as this. The best way is to wardec him, and if he's in NPC corp (most proabbly) suicidegank him repeatdlly.


I hope too that CCP punishes soemway all these who bought ISK from the mentioens RMT's that got caught in this operation, as the own devblog says, best way to kill this is to kill the demand for it. I guess current marketing on PLEX stuff will increase legal money exchange and kill part of the demand, just hoping.

Posting in an epic thread. Hopefully mining returns to be a more profitable profession now that the macro miners are eating it.

Ah, so this explains the implant price jump. Which has been quite profitable for many of us honest players... YARRRR!!

Fantastic work. This makes me very happy. I have noticed that the market has been acting a little unusual lately, and this is a likely culprit. Not that I mind - things are working out well for me. Very Happy
