The answer I received stated that because the toon had been given to me instead of me having purchased it, they would not be able to return the isk taken from my wallet.

This is so wrong on so many levels I really don't have the time nor energy to list them all. But here are some...

If I had purchased this character from my friend who left the game and gave me the character for 1 isk, then I guess it would have been OK? wtfo?

What is the sense of taking isk away from a loyal, rule abiding player? Is it to punish me? Who is being punished for this rule infraction? The departing player?

What is the point of this action, what does it do? Does it preserve the integrity of the game? Is it somehow going to prevent me from some kind of unfair advantage? My combined assets in two accounts exceed 4 billion isk.

Is it worth losing a paying customer, who holds two active accounts, over this trivial quantity of isk? Will it satisfy some kind of sense of need to do something about the Eve community's complaints of isk sellers, macro miners, macro ratters, macro missioners, scammers, etc.? Is this why they are doing this to someone who has not committed any infraction?

This whole incident has given me a first person perspective of the kind of people who are in charge of administering this game. And it has left me with a bitter taste that I can only eliminate by voting with my feet and walking away from it.

CCP are morons. They are so wrapped up in their unreal world that they have lost sight of why we pay on a monthly basis to play. The reason we do so is to have fun.

Ahh...I just posted in your other thread.

*EDIT*

You might want to take this post and copy it into your original thread. And have one thread. Two threads is going to get one or both of them locked.

And sorry man...you got a free character, a free account, and it cost you 40m ISK. Not a bad deal.

Then why is it so hard to sell 41 million ISK of it exactly?

Well otherwise it means that anyone who purchases ISK with two accounts can just "give" one with the character they purchased ISK with, avoiding punishment anytime they are threatened with it.

Can I have your (non-liquid) stuff?

This entire thing seems a little suspicious anyway. If you have eve-mails in your inbox that directly discussed RMT transactions, why didn't you immediately notify the appropriate persons? And if you have so many assets, why couldn't you sell off a mere 2% of those assets to recoup your losses? And if the character was given to you, you haven't lost any of your own assets (on your other characters).

Thanks for the tip.

It's not a bad deal, my friend was very generous. But that doesn't address the completely unreasonable actions by CCP. What's their point? What are they trying to do with this ruling?

I can see why they removed the ISK, but at the same time, I wouldn't have put you into the negative. 0 ISK would have been just fine. At least then you could actually play.
