So it's the spouses birthday. The in-laws are in town. The better half insists I go with, to the store. I dock my Raven and board the sedan, leaving the game running. Off we go, leaving the in-laws to mind the house.

30 minutes later we return. "Strange" I think, my Eve windows have been moved around. Untill I sit down and start reading the new Eve mails I have. My stomach lurches. My fater-inlaw has undocked and self destructed my Raven followed by my pod. Then to add to the pain, he found the marketplace and spent 106 million of the 130 million I had.

Leason learned, shoot in-laws on sight and ALWAYS lock the PC when you leave.

Back to lvl 3 missions to gather funds to replace the Raven and my implants.

/e cries!

No lies! I was shocked, at first I saw the Raven was gone and thought DAMN he got me killed and poded somehow. Then I saw a convo from Giate asking why the heck I had done that.

If it happens again - quickly edit your alts post to say something like

"hah you r noob"

Then post immedialty after with your main asking your alt to stop trolling

This avoids embarrasing 'alt' outing like we see in this thread.

Believe or don't, it's not like I'm out here begging for ISK. Just thought I'd share it with folks who would understand. The wife doesn't grasp how expensive her fathers playtime was.

So have you talked to your in-law and asked him why exactly he did that? I would talk to your spouse first though.

Well that's a fairly reasonable reason at least...I could see someone doing that.

I would insist your spouse perform Exotic Dancing for you during your missions in order to pass the time.

why would somebody use your computer, pick up eve then proceed to both self-destruct your ship and your pod?


and if you were running level 4 missions why on earth did you only have 130million? I've tagged along on a level 4 and had 10 million isk, from doing nothing but a little salvaging in my condor (I never even got most of the bounties as I was in a different pocket), at the end of it.


I could be nice and say 'oh man that sicks' or I could be honest and say this post sounds like a vieled beg.

we were only in the mission (angels something) for a little while, made more money off one NPC than most high quality level 1's give in LP, bounties, loot, salvage and reward! I was pretty astonished...


Either way, the cost of a raven is minimal in comparison to the payouts of a level 4, a few hours of that isk madness and... god what do you spend your isk on :P?

What did he spend the 106m on?

Personally, I sense BOB H4X at work. I'd ask your father-in-law if he knows Molle.

This is why we need an option to automatically log out after a long time inactive.

I'm sorry, but even I will not accept that as a reason personally.

The make-him-buy-GTC's suggestion sounds reasonable to me.

The father-in-law clearly wanted to make a point. He's never forgiven you for stealing away his beloved daughter, has he. Surprised

The next sign may be a mackerel wrapped in newspaper, casually left by the keyboard... YARRRR!!
