CCP "permanently remove" three Eve players behind Reykjavik monument vandalism

Eve Online

Last week, CCP unveiled a monument built in tribute to Eve Online and its pilots. Four days later, somebody scratched out the name of another player they had beef with.

CCP have called the incident an “insult to the entire community” - and “permanently removed” the individuals responsible from their playerbase.

“We do not tolerate this kind of behavior,” they said.

The developers have banned seven Eve Online accounts and one Dust 514 account associated with the three players. Another player indirectly involved in the vandalism has just the one account, and has been temporarily banned for six months.

All four are also permanently blacklisted from future Fanfest events.

Other players assisted in apprehending the culprits, including some of the involved parties and other members of their own alliance.

“We would like to reiterate that we do not tolerate this kind of behavior,” wrote community manager CCP Falcon, “and will continue to operate a zero tolerance approach to dealing with harassment and victimization in the EVE Universe.”

Despite community outrage (or perhaps because of it), CCP have decided not to release the in-game identities of the banned players.

“We feel that this would be contrary to our privacy policies,” said Falcon. “Any further action taken outside the virtual world relating to criminal damage or recovery of costs for repairs to the EVE Universe Monument will remain confidential between CCP Games, the authorities, and those involved.”

Well, that’s a nasty piece of business firmly dealt with. Can we think of anything nice about Eve to talk about?

Nice to see swift justice was achieved. I hope the involved parties gets sued for the amount it costs to remove both their names and restore the original deletion.

Id like to see what kind of evidence they have. Unless they confessed, those guys are gonna be fucking furious if they were wrongly accused. Wonder if you would have grounds to sue for deformation of character of a digital avatar? One for the philosophers.

From what I understand, they have video footage of them (from security cams), and they had help from alliance members in finding them.

Plus you know there's only like 5 people or whatever living Iceland, so it's not that hard to find them.

Im more interested in the fact on how the hell they found that pacific persons name on that monument. There are probably hundred of thousands of names on that statue.

The EVE website has a tool that you can use to find where on the monument your name is.

Tells you what plate, you find plate, you then go digging yourself for your name.

Simples!

Heh i was kinda hoping it was an epic quest they went on from somewhere far far away to scratch that thing off. Making them be icelandic is kinda dissapointing.
