or if your too lazy to do that, i'll give the story here, well i noticed that 1 piece of trit was being bought up for 100mil in korma, so i go there thinking its a bug and not real, i dock at the station and sell one piece of trit for a 100mil, well i got a 100mil out of it
as happy as i was (i've never seen over 3 mil before) it was kind of cut short because TTI contacted me saying they wish to have their money back. they offered me battleships at cost, when i refused that, they offered a couple miner IIs i refused that too , (100mil can get a lot of minerIIs)
after i refused that they said i was going to suffer for not returning the money and my corp too. :( i only wish they'd keep my corp out of it

This 1 item of trit for 100m isk is very interesting. It's exactly these kind of "trades" between alts and members of the same corps that give you wildly erroneous "you are selling item X for below the average price of Y" type messages.

Still - if TTI lost 100m isk on that one, it's probably about 100th of the money they've made from selling Miner II's.

I've been in a similar situation, and frankly it was too bad for me. I learned a valuable lesson, and at the same time didn't have an item I could sell endlessly for 5.5 million isk @ a profit of 5.496 million to make up for my mistake.

If this was to happen 100 more times I would start to pity them, but for now I'm sure they'll just shake this one off.

You have every right to profit from that.

If they're unable to check what they've typed/put up for sale, then that's too bad for them. They should be taking a little more care with things in future and just accept, and learn from, their mistakes.

If TTI attack you, feel free to get in touch with me and let me know where they are. I've only sunk two TTI battleships in the last week and would definately like to extend that figure. Great story though, I always get a kick out of it when TTI screw up. The money is yours, don't be bullied in to giving it up.

what obviosly happened is someone got in a hurry and got their numbers reversed, instead of 100 million tri at 1 isk each, they put in 1 tri for 100 million! weeee!

suck it up TTI, you screwed up, accept the consiquences and move on

besides, just go to your isk printing press and make some more

IC: 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

OOC: 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 this person petitions against you.

Dragon,

I have been posting for several months here. I have never joined a corp because I don't have the opportunity to play alot. I just think its sad that people are happy that someone who invested real time in this game and made an honest mistake is taken advantage of.

If you've read my previous posts you'll see I'm no friend of megacorps, Techell, TTI, Evolution of any others. But this isn't in character. This is all about REAL character or the lack of it.

Princess:
So keeping gamemoney given to you from honest trade. (even though by a mistake) is a sign of bad character, but starting to threaten to find James's IP (obviously in an attempt to make him scared of being hacked) isn't?

Your moral is screwed up.

What about if someone threatend to find out where he lives and to go there and beat the crap out of him, over a game? Is that cool to?
