Welcome to the darker side of Eve. From day one I spent a long time working on my good guy reputation. It was a long and painful trip. Ever since day one I really wanted to become a pirate, but the combat skills were lacking and I eventually learned a good trade and ended up in Celestial Apoc.

We fell out and I left and joined Stain Empire. In Stain was a player who was so rich that he just flowed with riches and eventually we setup a POS together in Empire which was run and controlled by myself. He should have realised as I never gave him full access that something was wrong but no he did not and this went on for months.

My plan was always to steal a couple of billion worth of blueprints but never the right ones seemed to be researched. Over the past few days the person concerned had made noises about leaving and setting up their own POS. I was running out of time very quickly...

Last night I took a quick calculation of what I could see and thank the maker, some fantastic blueprints were there. The only sad point was none of his T2 ones where as they were never put into the factory.

Ripping the blueprints out the factory like a mad man, not forgetting to take my own I passed them to an alt in the station. So that this player was not left with nothing, I transferred the corporation to them and left them with a large POS and lots of fuel. At one point they had told me they’d always like to run a POS, now was their chance. In exchange, I took the following:

1 x Abaddon BPO (ME10)
1 x Abaddon BPO (ME10)
1 x Hyperion BPO (ME10)
1 x Hyperion BPO (ME10)
1 x Maelstrom BPO (ME12)
1 x Maelstrom BPO (ME12)
1 x Rokh BPO (ME10)
1 x Rokh BPO (ME10)
1 x Scorpion BPO (ME20)

1 x Drake BPO (ME12)
1 x Drake BPO (ME12)
1 x Harbinger BPO (ME12)
1 x Hurricane BPO (ME12)
1 x Hurricane BPO (ME10)
1 x Myrmidon BPO (ME10)
1 x Myrmidon BPO (ME10)

1 x Minmatar Service Outpost Platform (ME4)

1 x Blackbird BPO (ME22)
1 x Thorax BPO (ME27)

The only problem I had was when I transferred them to my alt, he did not have enough ISK to pay for a shuttle to ferry these a few systems away!!!

Thank God for Warp To 0!!!

Maybe I can finally get a bounty on my head now... YARRRR!!

mmmmmmmmmm

I've always wondered how much my honour was worth tbh. i have had the opurtunity of stealing several billions from corps but never really wanted to because i liked the ppl i was stealing from. if i had the chance to steal 18bil worth of bpo's from someone i knew could afford to lose it and didn't like the person much. i'm actually not sure what i'd do.

Congratulations on being ethically corrupt. I'm sure there are quite a few players in this section who will pat you on the head and let you know how special you are.

For the rest of us, we just see you as another example of why business deals and, friendships, fail on a daily basis.

I'd rob 18bill isk off someone I didn't like no problem, no way i'd betray a corp or people I liked for something that little though, say what you will, but 18 bill isn't -that- much isk these days.

alot, but not that much.

Good catch though

Well they have plenty of T2 BPO's, infact they pretty much own a certain market.

They were also trying to leave me high and dry by leaving without warning, so I did what I had to do.

There was also arguements about certain costs for initial fuel setups which was really beginning to annoy me.

My motives bad from day 1 and the arguements do not justify what I did. However the Game mechanics allow for this behaviour and I did what I needed to do.

I reckon from conversations, the person concerned has probably at least 70 billion more ISK anyway plus all the T2 stuff.

lol dude don't try to change it to the fact that you did it in retaleation to them doing certain things. You already said you were planning it from the beginning.

It's fair enough to do it. many ppl do and would. i kinda like the nice guy approach to eve but it's ppl like you who keep ppl on their toes and makes it interesting. ignore ppl telling you your a low life and spoil the game etc. your path is not the one i and many others have chosen but that doesn't make it wrong.

I agree, not enough to brag about.

However, I am standing up saying I did it rather then try to behind an alt or anything like that as this is a main character rather then an NPC one.

LOL! Coming from the man that openly admitted to me once when he paid me back some ISK I'd given you that you had just made 100mil from scamming with an alt of yours... Wink ...then yes, perhaps.

you have to remember that with stuff like this, you are basicly cashing in your credibility...and you no longer have it afterwards. If 18 bil is the pricetag on yours, so be it.

Some people just don't know how to distinguish from rl and the game. Rolling Eyes

Grats on your new BPOs. Perfectly fine if you ask me; like you said, the victim had many times more ISK so who cares if they lose a few billion? Owning most any slice of the t2 market will make that up in no time.

Enjoy your ISK. Buy a few HACs and go joyriding. Cool

heh, did you see that, i fell ^^ other than that, gratz, you are 18 billion richer Twisted Evil

Now personally i would never steal from people i like ingame, sure if all the members of the corp would **** me off so much i'd want to "hurt" them in RL then i wouldnt mind stealing a few billions...

ok, i've said more than i was gonna say.... enjoy your 18b ^^

If you were playing against NPC's things like corp-thefts would be ok, but the victims DO exist in real life.
