EVE Online Players Discover Exploit, Make Mad Profit, Get Smacked Down

Posted by | June 29, 2012

EVE Online is a cutthroat space sim MMO where everything is made by players, and anything that gets blown up is gone for good. This leads to a little, shall we say, creativity in how one goes about making money in the game. Recently, players discovered a way to game the system by using alt characters to murder their other alt characters, and thus gain rewards from various factions. This worked great, until somebody let the EVE devs in on the scheme. Ten Ton Hammer has the story.

    With EVE Online, you can be sure anyone who is anyone is exploiting something to fund their space empire. This story is only unusual in that the devs took action against them, and that’s probably because no one on the dev team flies in that guild.
