Seems few people like to try and get there votes up by taking advantage of newer players or players who havent seen trhe scam before.

A guy called Darius III offering a plex for a vote and then sending an empty package....lol

Should people like this allow to run for a candidate?

I personally don't see a problem with this.

Whats the difference between him promising plex for votes and then not delivering, when others are promising ideas or promising to fix things in the game that they have no hope of ever delivering .

You seem to be suggesting that trying to buy votes is less morally-reprehensible than trying to sell a vote.

I say Darius should be DQ'd, as he deserves, and those who fell for this scam should simply have to deal with the fact that they lost their votes, as they deserve.

I fail to see the issue here. There have been no announcements against the buying or even scamming of votes. There are no rules against this as this is really encouraged EVE conduct. There is no reason he should be DQ from the voting simply because you do not like that you got scammed out of a vote or do not like his conduct.

In real life I have personally driven a bus full of random people to a voting station to vote so no lying/scamming is within reason to get votes. So long as you don't dig up people to vote, wait nm I activated my old accounts to vote....Yea its all fair game in this rigged contest.

SERIOUSLY! that isnt scamming, it's out and out trolling fools ! if people even stopped to think for 10 seconds, who in their right mind is going to give a plax for each vote they recieve - are people really this ***b ?

if they really are (and it appears some must indeed be so), then good luck Darius III.5

I stole HUNDREDS OF VOTES. The suckers were coming at me so fast and furious I couldnt keep up with the convos. I had to tell my remote posters to CHILL FOR A MINUTE! At one point I had 20 open windows most of which I snagged. Made a few friends. Best part was when it came time to find it that they were scammed.

"when will I get my plex?" ME "When do you think...." "Never"


Please allow 999999 weeks for delivery.

Thanks and sorry! Thanks for your vote SORRY I HAD TO STEAL IT. Loads of fun. Free trip to iceland here I come. LOLS

At the end of the day, with the democratic process it doesn't matter how good your policies are, how qualified you are, or why people voted for you.

All that matters is that enough people click the vote button beside your name.

Isn't democracy grand!?

So petition it.

There's a good chance that it isn't allowed. CCP's stance is that in-context scamming, like selling a regular Raven as a Navy Issue is OK. Out of context scamming, like cheating on PLEX aid, is completely out of bounds.

You are filled with bitterness and fail. Don't be a hater. So some scrubs got GAFFELED out of their vote. Those scrubs who tried to SELL their vote then got ripped off (AHHAHAH AHAHAHAH AHHAHAHA) desreve everything they got. Bless the morons for they are many. Not to mention using their shattered sense of importance to fuel the butthurt-they made no less than EIGHT SEPARATE POSTS using their very bones to fuel the PR engine.

How does it feel scamming votes? Very satisfying
YARRRR!!

PS: LEAVE BRITTANY ALONE!!!! I KNOW MY RIGHTS!!!!!

In a way, it's in the spirit of Eve.

I personally think it is lame (albeit funny) for someone to do, but even more lame for someone to accept the offer and then come to the forums to complain about it. Seriously, what did they expect?

However, how many of those people just pretended to vote? : > Har har, free plastic wrap, for whatever that's worth. If the PLEX was real then the forums would be full of, "Darius is an idiot, I didn't really vote for him but I got a free plex anyway, lulz, aren't I clever?"

Much ado about nothing.

Personally I would have done a "Vote for me and ill vote twice for you!" spam just for the sake of it.
