Got this email from CCP:

http://usera.imagecave.com/whitedwarf5/CCP/uhm_what.JPG

I used the 24 hour free activation deal to see if I indeed had 14 trillion ISK in my wallet.

No, I only had 1,498,435,779.39

I thought maybe some ISK seller accidentally dumped 14 trillion ISK into my account, I was ready to have a Titan party, no such luck :(

Bad use of comma's in that email don't you think?

Nah, I'm waiting for WIS, so I can blow it all on a nice leather jacket :) And of course learn how to do the fairy dust dance with shinny sparkles.

Those are the only things that will get me back into this game. Very Happy

This was actually a typo on the mail sent out which made it reflect an incorrect mount of ISK in your wallet. Sorry for the error and hopes of getting a quick Titan! Very Happy

Yeah, I was wondering whether or not the Dust 514 thingy has squashed my hopes of WIS...

Also the wording seems weird. It's like somebody (your char) is talking to you...but it's you talking like if you were partner with yourself XD

I think the CCP employee who was in charge of sending out these emails is going to get a spanking...

Considering that a good portion of the art and character animation in dust (assets which takes up the lions share of creation time for any project) can be dumped right into wis with little to no addition work I'd say wis will follow closely on dusts heels if not possibly a simultanious release.

yeah, it's my own personal opinion. It's just extremely suspect to me that they first announced in 2006, I think, about WiS. Then with the DUST announcement this year they tell us how it's been in development for 3 years.

coincidence? Me thinks not, but meh, that's just my opinion.

Hmmm greatly exaggerating the amount of ISK in your wallet to make you come back... genius.

lol, god I remember the chaos back then (unless they have done it again that is? lol)

I too got an email today telling me I had just shy of 5 trillion iskies - I havent played since October last year, and everyone I played with seem to have long gone, and my cap ships are no doubt sitting way out in hostile 0.0 space lol, but for 5 trillion iskies, I got VERY excited :P - was kinda hoping CCP had made an error (but in my favour :P), oh well still looking forward to Dust

Hey dude, don't cry.

It's only 4162 years of game time you could potentially buy. Because you're probably NOT gonna live so long, could you give me a hundred years for my precious advice ? Cool

Anyway, that email is weirdly written. It scares the **** out of me.

"Accidental" typo that added a few extra random digits? .... bwahahahahaha, yea riiight Laughing

Not random digits at all... just that it forgot to put the decimal point.
It is a known fact that while eve client shows "cents" i.e. 0.99 isk it actually has track of 4 decimal places...
I remember from time to time ppl crying that while they have exactly 123.99 isk and want to but i don't know what they get an error message saying something like you need 123.99 to buy this but you have only 123.99 isk. this is cause they actually had only 123.9899 isk or less... something along those lines...
now if you take those 4 digits and you forget about the decimal point... voila the trillions on all these posts...

Now having said all that, i still consider this as a mean scam from CCP Shocked
