Shrug. It's a game dude. I gambled and lost (nothing I cannot replace easily).

Again, shrug.


I honestly and sincerely support this attitude. I am not affiliated with said scam, but seeing someone write "its a game" on this forum is quite refreshing. ISK is there to be played with, after you hoard your buffer.

Kudos to you, kind Sir/Ma'am/EvE transvestite

People who lost isk in this suck, you had plenty of time to double up. My alt invested early and once my initial investment was matched I pulled out the majority of my isk. I suppose I lost the bit of isk I still had there but in total I still came out on top. Thank you Phaser Inc.

Lame reply - only replying to say I haven't been scammed once in 6 years playing Eve. Yes there are idiots being scammed every day, we all know this.

I just get tired of morons like the OP seeking a combination of attention, tears and validation by coming to the forum to brag about their heists.

Since the "oringinal" huge scam/theft by the GHSC's 5-6 YEARS AGO that was covered in PC Gamer, every other scam/theft is just unoriginal "meh". U get me, bruv?

If you're tired of these posts in particular, why do you click on them? I just get tired of folk like yourself seeking a combination of feelings-of-self-superiority, reverse-tears, and kudos by coming onto these posts and adding nothing but their own meaningless disinterest. I however don't have the luxury of being prewarned about such content by the title of the thread.

Anyway, since the "orangeanal" time someone shot someone else in a computer game, everyone other occasion since then was also unoriginal. Originality doesn't matter if the story is told interestingly enough.

Impressive, you posted more than a meme.

And I agree, a heist can be interesting if the story is told well - this one was not and is not. I admit I wish I had not clicked the post, my mistake. Fun as talking to you has been, you're a waste of my time.

Keep on trollin' Wink

Interesting. There are so many so-called "scams" because there's no enforcement mechanism. When Madoff "made off" with all that money, he wound up in prison. There's no enforcement because there's no rule of law. And, since there's no rule of law, there's no such thing as a scam in EVE.

It's all smoke and mirrors. Watch the left hand while I diddle with myself with my right. It's not a GAME since it has no real rules, or objectives, other than own sh^t, blow sh^t up or mass a bunch of ISK and brag.

It's....an asylum and the inmates run it. By the way, stop complaining about the padded cells. It's all CCP can do to keep us supplied with toilet paper.

Meh... what Pok said. It's not illegal, so there's no actual scam. Just over 4000 really, really bad business decisions.

I'm going back to not caring now.

its only a scam when one of them rips it off, if they realise that it can work and if they just keep it going they will be super duper rich without even robbing it.

Maybe one day when they all wanna quit they can make it a hiest, but until then its a pretty good busniess.

So finally we get to see the numbers.

I've really wondered when they'd stop spamming their website in local, I always thought the scam was so obvious that no one would invest.

Now you actually got a trillion together, that is just brilliant. And it's mostly highsec money too, I like that. Laughing

The question remains: Now what?

Not everything is lost!

All investors have a choice: They can forget or can react.

This event is also known from real life and they are defense mechanisms here for these cases – low court and precedent! Simply because this is real life situation and people who doing this in real life are marked as thief’s! (In nations of first world I mean) Phaser Inc is talking about “because this is not illegal” but they are WRONG! This is illegal!!!

Victims of this FIDDLE are not victims by Eve online game official rules!!! They don’t lost ships in regular battle (even unfair battle). They don’t lost money on market (even bad business).
They money was simple stolen!

This is not fun anymore because real money is involved! Eve’s ISK is not anymore just virtual currency! Eve ISK can be transferred to real money of significant value and this conversion is officially and directly supported by CCP Games – PLEX!
By calculations we are talking about +/- 2.830 PLEX licenses (235 years of free play) – it is 56.458 EUR (80.250 USD).

And this is exactly the situation in which victims can invoke justice under international law!

This event can’t be underestimated! This was not just some scam. This will have impact on Eve world and players behavior.

If CCP won’t intervene (As well as governments in the same cases) Eve world is going to change.

So I am interested how this event ends.

PLEX go one way... RL $ to ISK. Thats it. No court will take this on, no lawyer in their right mind would take it on. You lost, and are now butthurt over it. Get over yourself, and learn to research before investing.

It is funny and pathetic when someone who doesn’t know how to convert ISK to real money is attacking another in order to learn about investing...

And you don't understand the point of my opinion.

If CCP don’t intervene in this case like “court” we can expect how crime will be raising in this community. More scam - more spam - because ALL IS ALLOWED!

You've never played in a sandbox, have you?

Anyway... I was speaking *within the EULA* for the PLEX-RL conversion. Yes, you can absolutely sell ISK for real money. But PLEX were not designed for that, nor does CCP support that.

Dude, just accept that ISK is play-money and you got play-scammed. Real Life courts are concerned with RL events, and this does not count as one of them.

Also, if you think that this is the first, the biggest or the most notorious of scams in the history of Eve, then you haven't been playing long enough... Finance PVP is still just PVP.

Besides I made a billion off of these guys and still got my money out in time, so you should have just been more paranoid. Razz
