Some of you will have read the thread Loki Elis starts about what happened to our corporation some months ago :: if not click original thread

We logged on to find a mail from a "hacker" who had broken into an account with the character "Nicodemus Novasun" on it. Now this "hacker" proceded to destroy the hangar arrays at all 3 of our POS's including any ships he had not stolen and about 8 months of fuel.


He also stole all our blueprints that we're not locked down - our blueprints were restricted to a few people - the character in question had been with us since the beginning. On top of this the "hacker" then went into Akkio and announced what he had done and said he wanted to give people bookmarks to the POS locations so other people could go finish them off.

Thanks to alot of hard work and help from friends we managed to get the POS's online, but it was only a temporary fix. It has all but killed the corp with many people leaving or not logging on anymore. We estimate about 17b in lost assets - we we're left with about 800m in the corp wallet and not much else.

As you can imagine we were all pretty crushed by this, but theres more.

When i was out scanning in the system i picked up some haulers & badgers on the scanner in what appeared to be a safespot about 3,000,000 kilometers from one of our POS.

I picked up a hauler, moved some characters who could fly badgers to the system and proceded to move the items back to the POS - i also noticed 3 secure containers that looked like they had been jettisoned. Two of them didnt have a password and were full or missiles from out POS defense and the other was passworded.

I did a quick show info to confirm that these were dropped by Nico's character.

They were not.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Now most of you will know that only the portrait of the person who jettisoned the container is show when you click "show info"; we have tested it - believe me. So Operion was there, and jettisoned those cans.

Now i feel i should explain one or two things right about here. Operion is the alt of a character called Selmada, he might be the main now. He and Nico are real life friends. Apparently Nico has left the game altogether or is on "holiday". What seems obvious is that he gave Operion the password to the account - who then proceeded to royally f**k over his corp of 6-7 months pretending to be a hacker.

why? i hear you ask.

Simple, he needed the money for his carrier, skills and fittings.

Exhibit C

He bought the carrier just before he stole all the stuff, and im guessing he didnt fancy earning all the money for the rest of the stuff by ratting like he says he did for the carrier.

So thats the motive and link to the hacked account covered.

Now, amongst the things he stole were alot of blueprints - amongst the originals we had was the scorpion. I believe we researched it to 10 ME - but i cant remember exactly. The point is, Operion would have no need for blueprints and yet...

Exhibit D

Why am i posting this? i dont see any realistic way to get back what he took - CCP wont do anything because a) they dont care b) there too busy c) they encourage this type of thing. We petitioned it but were told to contact them on the hacked account - yea, clever people those gm's.

Its strange when someone youve spoken to many times on TS does something like this - hes

Prepare to have your thread nerfed. Post links not images.

That said I feel your pain. Corp thieves are the lowest of the low, they do add a certain spice to the game, but they can also utterly crush a corporation and ruin the game for a number of players. There are not enough security tools in place to stop the higher ups from taking corp property.

Id hope that the community would make his life a little harder, KOS's and that kind of thing - as i say if someone can fraps taking his carrier down we'll give a reward of 100m.

I'm sure there are groups out there who would happily do so for a reward. Try posting in crime and punishment, someone there will likely negotiate a price with you.

now he's trying to leave the corp and we are checking it every day and just giving him a query role so he cant leave with either character.


this is against the rules and he can petition you for doing it.
if he wants to leave a corp, there is no way you can legally stop him doing it, you just have to followin him with wardecs wherever he goes.

Well, not that I agree with corp theft but, robbing a corp blind is not breaking any rules within EVE. However, you are greifing him by changing his roles everyday and not allowing him to leave the corp, which is a petitionable offense. Neutral

to be honest, i give up with it - he can leave for me - ive said what i needed to say, i dont want him in the corp, we cant move forward with a piece of crap like that floating about.

Nice to see you have found out who the guy really was.

Just goes to show, somepeople will do anything...

You do however have to let him leave the corp; its harrasment if you keep giving him his roles back Smile

But, as has been said, post in C&P about the nice 100m reward for his carrie and it will be done by someone Smile

No but account sharing is against the rules and from the OP it sounds like one of their members shared his account with someone else who robbed the corp blind.

Not sure even in this case if CCP should reimburse due to a hacked account (probably not if your own corp member willingly gave over his PW to a "friend").

True but I see no way to prove that he shared his account, the original owner could have just decided to rob the corp and use this as an excuse, much like "hacker" excuse

Well.

We didnt know that stopping someone leaving was against the rules - and now we do, we will stop. He's officially free to go do the same to someone else, i hope he's familiar with Dante's work.

If you are sure about the account sharing and can convince a GM to check, you won't have to worry about seeing him log on ever again.

If CCP finds evidence of account sharing, aren't you going to get bansticked?

I hope so.

Well, Seems you guys guessed it! But no matter ... Some of you in Jewel didnt desrerve to get the hose, but some of you were screwing other members over and running the corp into the ground before it really took off anyway... You dont promise people things you cant deliver and pay them slave wage for their work. There were plenty of times ore was going at corp prices for 50% of market value and members didnt know the differnece cause they didnt check...

And doing it for the money? Sure, the money helps... But I didnt need it... I had all the money I needed all along... the way Eve is set up, it not only allows for this type of event to occur, but activley encourages it.

17 Bil? oh now that is nowhere near what i got... but then again, I havent sold any of the blueprints... and realisticly... I didnt pop the corp hangers... That wasnt me. I'm guessing thats where all the $$ was... I think I ended up with about 3 bil in assets ... Now kindly let me leave this Corp ... i'm going to drop my roles one more time... if they dont stay gone... that's at least 3 times they have been reinstated... that's griefing and CCP WILL do something about that.

If nothing else, this might teach you to be a little more carefull who you trust.

Sorry for your loss.

On the subject of petitions and CCP undoing corp thefts... I would be royally p'd off if I decided to rip my corp off and CCP stepped in somehow and took it back from me, as it was a consious decision on my part to do so, and not in conflict with current game mechanics in any way - on the contrary, the fact that methods like lockdown and hangar rights exist means that it's perfectly legal to do it no matter how many billion you head off with.

But it stills sucks though, happened to my old corp once so I know exactly how you feel.

I was under the impression that this is the guy that was given the account details. I might be wrong.

Can you make it so that a bpo can only be removed from the corp locker by starting a job on the bpo ? and then when it goes back into the locker - it is again not removable.

I'm just starting a new corp, we have 4 members, some of which will probably want access. This kind of thing scares hell out of me ;)

Sorry for your loss - I find these kinds of people really despicable, but it is a valid move on their part. I would like better tools to deal with it however.

Stuff the 'holier than thou" bull. Let me see if I get you logic:
"Some corp mates are imo being screwed over. Hm, I think I'll screw the entire corp, including the innocents. But of COURSE it was all a noble plan to teach them valuble morals."
Stow it. Personally I hope CPP looks at this very closely. People like you are the type I will go out of my way to give an ulcer.

I feel your pain...

Corp Theft, regardless of how its executed, is never a pretty site.

A year and a half ago HDY underwent a coup, which is well known history. HDY was left with far less than what you were left with, far less.

A year and a half later we are stronger than we ever were and have far surpassed anything achieved during that golden era. In fact the corp thieves did HDY a large favor, they left. Sure they left with everything they could get their mits on including website files, database files, members (many of whom they lied to and slanted things the way they wanted them to appear) and a ton of other things but they did leave.

When the chaff is cut from the wheat its all good man!!!

Hold your chin up, take pride in the fact that you figured it out and rebuild bigger and better than you have ever been before. Your best revenge is to extend that special finger in their general direction and go about making yourself stronger than before. Also take solace in the fact that people tend to play their EVE characters as a mirror of themselves. Sure you can dress it up with a fancy bio but your actions are what define you.

I wish you the best of luck, I know you have a hard hard road ahead of you but if you are determined you'll make it. Eye of the Tiger and all that stuff.

We did!

Regards,
OverKill

P.S - Lock them suckers down and have your CEO retain the shares. In the future only release one or two BPOs at a time and do not release more until the originals are locked down. Will solve a lot of your problems right there.
