You have every right to keep it, theft is a choice.

TTI have evry right to extract a measure of war against you, and if that doesnt convince you to return the money, then upon your entire corp. Actions of any corp member must be held responsible back to his corp.

I would suggest you work out a solution with TTI, get something worthwhile for returning the money, otherwise 100 million will soon dissapear in lost assets/time if you are added to the VA War list.


theft? where? who? when? don't be fool, that's tti's own fault, nobody else to blame. get over it.Laughing

i love the smell of public humiliation in the morning


Public Humiliation?
Firstly i doubt this even happend, secondly if i lost 100mil to a moron and he didn't give it back the last thing i do was tell him to get laid, no indeed i'd be looking for his IP address.

who's moron, you tti or the guy fill the order? lmao.......Cool

Why would you want his IP address? So you could commit some real life mayhem on a guy because YOU were stupid? Grow up.

I feel sorry for TTI guy who made the mistake with the buy order. All of you who mock him cannot have done much trading on your own. It's very easy to make that kind of mistake (mix up the volume and price fields) if you're tired or in a hurry - I've done it myself several times but with less severe consequences.

I would certainly pay back the money. (Well, at least 90% of it Wink) Next time, I could be the one making a mistake.

Actually, if you made such a mistake on the real-world stock market, the money would be repaid since it's obviously a mistake and mistakes happen.

This is just plain rude. So, from what i understand. He sells 1 unit of Trit for 100 million. A guy from you corp buys it.

what went wrong, he sells stuff, other people buy stuff. get over it... its a mistake from one of yur guys, mistakes happen. Some people are dumb, some people are not but to be honest; he got the money fair & square so i see no reason why he should give it back.

On again, to be honest, i think you guys are rich enough so *****ing about a lousy 100 mil is a bit stupid. Go mine Bistot for 2 days and you have your money back.

Keep it James, you just became my personal hero.

not james sell 1 tri for 100m first, that kind of thing will change some people's standing(at lease mine), but the truth is tti set up a buy order of 100mil for 1 tri first, then james saw it and fill the order, there's nothing wrong on james' part.

HOW did this happen?
Don't tell me a TTI guy saw a sell order for 1 trit @ 100 mil and entered "1" in amount-to-buy... Twisted Evil



From what ive heard, instead of putting a buy order for 100,000,000 at 1 isk each, TTI entered a buy order for 1 at 100,000,000 each. simple flip flop of the quantity and price field values.

I don't think it was theft to fulfill the order. The guy saw an order and filled it. I would have done the same Very Happy

Clearly the person who placed the order made a mistake. I made a similar mistake myself before, fortunately I caught it before the order went through.

If it was me on the lucky side of this, I'd return (most of) the money.

keep the money and report them for griefing if they wage war with your corporation. It was their mistake and if they wage war on you for it then that is not acceptable. That is against the TOS of the game and qualifies a griefing and it is a ban-able offense.

i think id repay the money also,if it was anyone other then tti

i wouldnt worry about it im sure tti's jovian friends will fix it for them

if some corp wants to cheat(by using out of game connections to gain ingame isk) i have no problem with them losing said isk

This happened to me once also selling tritanium. Actually I ended up selling one tritanium for millions. As soon as the trade went through I received a tell from the buyer. He said he couldn't believe he was so stupid but that it was his fault so I should enjoy the cash. I sent the money back since he exhibited such style and I'm sure the millions he would have lost would have been far more painful to him than the 100 million was to TTI. I guess class shines through.
If this incident with TTI happened with me and they started out with demands to return the money - I wouldn't give it back either.

In Character:

While I hope you put the money to good use helping the poor of the galaxy I would recommend you read this thread as well:

http://myeve.eve-online.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=26651

Out of Character:

Obviously in real life (which is what were dealing with in this case) you have very little character wherein Jack Hayden has alot.

Your refusal to help another player remedy an obvious mistake is sad. You obviously care for no one but yourself, are selfish and spiteful in your real life.

Consider beyond whoever this person is in game (who gave you the money) and consider instead the time a real person spent earning this money. Considering those things it is clear what a real person should do out of decency.

While TTI is a megacorp and ingame roleplaying by myself indicates I am sworn to oppose their greedy ways your obvious joy at "screwing TTI" shows your complete lack of scruples. If it were anyone else would you have posted with such glee?

I would hope this person petitions against you. Likewise your real life personality as someone who is happy to take advantage of someone who made a mistake shows just what kind of person you really are.

hey princess, i got one thing to tell you, its a game. and in the game most of my rl morals don't apply, if it were real life and i made 100mil and bankrupted a company i'd give it back cause this is real people were talking about, but this is a game were playing , rember a game. keep your lectures to yourself please unless somebody askes for them

Where a lecture is deserved so be it issued.

It is a game yes but the character who did this is a real person. I'm speaking of the real time he put into getting that isk. REAL TIME. You said yourself you had never had over $3million isk so you better then anyone should know just how difficult it can be to make money here.

I suppose in real life your one of those people who would see an armored car robbed and grabbed the money while the guards lay bleeding? I mean your real life lack of respect for this other players real time invested clearly indicates which way the wind blows.

If your so proud of taking advantage of someones mistake why deny it? Come on be "hauler tough" and just admit that your selfish and don't care about anyone else. Admit you are happy you were able to take advantage of someone and obtain the efforts of their REAL TIME investment. Did you even consider this person may have been tired when they made this mistake because they were spending so much REAL TIME earning that isk?

Did you even read the post I provided the link too? Did any of you? All those people were supportive of Jack Hayden and his honesty with a player. I guess everyone here saying "KEEP THE MONEY" is the other side of that coin of humanity.

Admit it - Shouldn't be so tough.

princess , i am drawing hte line, lay off the real life comparisions to this game, i really don't even want to think of what kind of person you are, critizing everybody else, worry about yourself before you come out and blast everybody.

everybody puts time in this game, some gain something, and lots more people lose out, i've lost out before, my corp has lost out before, and now TTI lost out once, the richest corp in the game that a lot of people dont' like. everybody loses out some time.

do you give the same speech to a pker who blasted you? i mean come off your high horse, your insulting me and your the only person in the game who has ever made me mad, something nobody else has done.
so please princess, stop trying to finger me as in the wrong here, and stop accusing me of being a terrible person in rl, i don't want to hear it

Well I think it's clear you could care less about this other person. What I'm saying is as a real person you don't appreciate the time this other person put into earning that isk.

While its true people win and lose everyday in Eve this is different. Because he went and made an honest mistake you felt it was fine to take advantage of him. This is nothing like a PK'er or anything else. This is about takin advantage of someone. If your wondering even though this is a game I'm sure people will realize they can't roleplay everything. A persons real personality and convictions will be revealed.

Gee I guess that says it all doesn't it.

Maybe I've made you mad at me because you know deep down inside I'm right?

As for real life I'm a single parent of two wonderful children as well as a copy editor for USA Today.

I also am an advocate of socialism (socialized medicine for example) and helping the poor. As you can see my ingame convictions are a reflection of my real life.

As for being critical I'm disappointed people feel its alright to take advantage of others. This greed and selfishness is whats wrong with the world today if you hadn't noticed. My criticism isn't so much of you as of the line of thinking your exhibiting. That being it is ok to do this.

Very Happy

Yeah loosing isk in this way sucks. But at least it is "small change" to the person who lost it. Something the majority in this game can not say.

Hi all,

I agree with to Pricess, though I see how tempting the affair is. This may be a question of high morals (for Pricess) or purely economic attitudes (for James).

To my mind, the basic question is: Why did you feel urged to place a thread in here, James? You didn't want to be treated the way you would like to treat TTI and were looking for players giving you relief.

So be strong or prove your weakness! You alone will know what kind of guy you are. But don't cry for help in your struggle.

Nevertheless, making mistakes is human and so is it to pay for them. This means you can demand some reward. Just be fair. So keep some money (maybe 5%) and give the rest back or apply for a good job at TTI (what may be cool, as you have proven to be a witty guy) and give it all back.

To keep it all... no option for me. I would follow Pricess, maybe because I would prefer her to remember me for good roleplaying when I am in need for help.
