Daily Tip:Never remote repair a person in high security space, unless you know them very well. If you do, that person can then trick CONCORD into attacking you. Before you ask, it is not an exploit, it's just playing dirty.

EVE Online Player Swipes 200 billion isk

Posted Wed, Oct 22, 2008 by Medeor

What's 200 billion? My government stole, I mean borrowed, 700 billion.

The EVE Online forum starts to read like a police blotter if you can believe everything in there. In a game where virtual back-stabbings are a common occurrence, we shouldn't be surprised by this headline. Apparently this latest cash grab is real though. In yet another high-stakes heist, someone has run off with 200 billion isk from a corporation. That is a lot of money, even for those that claim they can make 1 billion a day. No matter how you slice that, it hurts. According to the EVE Tribune thelung187 was able to walk away with about two thirds of Destructive Influence's cash. The only question I have is why would anyone give a character rights to anything when said character has the police code for a homicide in their name (code 187 - heck they made a movie about it).

The game is made for this to happen. The whole socio-economic structure of EVE is a petri dish to study human behavior. What is interesting to me is that unlike other games where you can transfer servers, EVE has one server/shard. There is no "getting away." I'm sure the na're-do-wells have money laundering schemes too, but that's why I don't even watch the news anymore, too many 187s.
