EVE Online: players call for greater transparency, CCP says no

Thursday, 14th February 2013 02:08 GMT By Brenna Hillier

EVE Online players have requested the developer provide proof of wrongdoing when handing out bans, and escalate protests as high as posible. CCP has refused, saying it can’t escalate higher than its own CEO, and protesting it wields the ban hammer based on “actual empirical evidence” pulled from servers, which for various legal and technical reasons cannot be made accessible to players. The scandal at the heart of the drama involves a player from a generally “good” corporation receiving a ban for using bots and the community’s incapacity to believe he might have been cheating. It has been lovingly chronicled on Destructoid if you’d like to jump down the rabbit hole.

    Always keep in mind: EVE Online ≈ Assholes Online

    Which means even ‘a player from a generally “good” corporation’ could very well be the mangiest bastard imaginable. If the person in question were one’a them Goons no one would bat an eyelash.

    Even I  have my evil phases :D

    Instead of making unreasonable requests from CCP, why don’t they ponder why their member biomassed over a mere 14 day ban (he didn’t know the ISK was going to be confiscated at the time)?

    He is blatantly now playing with a different account and an adjusted bot.
