You’d think that EVE Online players would have taken the “trust no one” mantra to heart after a decade of news stories about corporation scams and scummy capsuleers in CCP’s sci-fi gankbox. Apparently not, though, as the latest bit of drama involves a 600 billion ISK theft perpetrated by someone named Non Erata against the Vanguard Frontiers corporation.
According to Rock, Paper Shotgun and EVEnews24.com, Vanguard Frontiers’ current and former CEOs called for punitive in-game action against Non Erata, though CCP has long maintained that this sort of skulduggery is part of the sandbox.
If you’re wondering, 600 billion ISK equals approximately $13,000.00.[Source: EVEnews24, via RPS]
