I believe he's also an engineer or otherwise in a technical position. Firing senior technical staff is often extremely difficult because it's likely that he has extremely intimate knowledge of many of CCP's technologies, and therefore is almost integral to day-to-day engineering - as a source of mentoring and knowledge if nothing else.

Dramabomb, part whatever. (Link to Kugutsumen's board)

Allegedly, The Enslaver (LV/Shinra leader & Titan pilot) is GM Sunshine (known for hanging around in LV space and trying to ban Goons for fofofo-ing). Incidentally, The Enslaver all-but-quit playing in mid-late January...about when the t20 shit started hitting the fan.

Oh, and (what's left of) LV is allied with BoB.

For those who don't remember the name GM Sunshine, he's the dude from the log where he demands Remedial prevent anyone from typing 'fofofo' in local after a battle as opposed to, you know, gagging them or something.

And then he more or less threatens to ban Remedial ("your actions will affect future decisions") if Goonfleet doesn't comply ("we would like you to stop this this instant").

 rolleyes

However, speculation has changed: he may instead be GM Zhanius (based on employment times and behavior), while GM Sunshine may be someone else in LV.

I feel like I should be paying something since I am receiving so much enjoyment from these EvE drama bombs even though I don't play the game.

I imagine this won't be as dramarific since anyone still playing after the t20 stuff is apparently just fine with CCP employees cheating, taking over territory and destroying those who oppose them.

Over simplified a little, but you're right about the customers staying if they haven't already quit.

Ultimately CCP staff playing the game is a good thing, but you have to wonder how much drama (or more accurately bad press) needs to occur before CCP is forced to limit their staff to playing "everyday" roles rather than the high-profile roles which they seem to gravitate towards.



If you're looking for account cancellation type drama you wont find it here unless something major drops ... my prediction for that kind of drama is when they push mission content into low-sec and then proclaim they made low-sec "safer".  Someone's going home in tears and it's either going to be the mission runners with expensive cap ships, or it's going to be the pirates getting nerfed harder.

There probably are a few pilots, and more will train, but it's very likely that the first few Titan pilots were CCP, because you kinda need to know in advance what the prerequisites for the skill are, in order to beat the masses.

Enslaver became junor GM on January the fired. At that time he also resigned from all of his leadership duties in LV and offered to kill the account completely (which would be a shame).

I knew him during CA times and he is a really good chap. For all the mining he has done in his career, he probably bought that titan himself:D

Well if he resigned and isn't in LV anymore, what's the point of keeping the account open?  So others can share / get access to it?  I understand it "would be a shame" to lose all those skillpoints, but characters get banned/lost all the time, and right now all these "it's such a shame" statements give the appearance that CCP cares more about their skillpoints and progress within the game than the health of the game itself or the perceptions of its entire playerbase.  I dunno, maybe it's just me, I've trashed 15mil SP characters and restarted without a second thought in the past, but to me they just seem more addicted to playing the stupid game than I'd consider normal.

Nah, Kugutsemen revealed a post from the LV forums where it was made plain that Chowdown's account is used to pilot their titan, and that others share his account details to fly it when he is unavailable.  EULA-busting, but CCP would never dare do anything even if they were so inclined.

Perhaps so he could keep training skills on it, keep in touch with friends and get back to playing it eventually, if/when his work at CCP ends? 3 year old characters that have part in EVE history as alliance leaders etc aren't really that common.

I think it is odd that people get so upset about "losing" all those skill points. Can't CCP just rename the character, change the portrait, and revise the employment history? I'd be shocked if they couldn't.

This is exactly what CCP does. People aren't upset about losing skillpoints, what they lose is the contact with friends they've possibly played with for years (because it's rather easy to figure out the person's identity on TS so the new cover would get blown quick) and the ability of their established character to be still part of the game events and history.

He's been seen very recently on the LV teamspeak rallying and organizing teams to attack.

A member of BoB was piloting a Nyx, and doing funny stuff with it (current rumour - covops cloak on it). The player is banned, and someone at CCP lost their job due to the actions of their Internal Affairs division.

Were I in charge, I'd have loudly and publicly prohibited staff from playing the game, and then fired the shit out of anyone who didn't comply.  Sure GM Schlomo will miss pwning noobs with his guild buddies.  Fuck him, he works for me now.  He can quit if he doesn't like it.

Yeah, developers should have the insight into their game which comes from playing it.  Worry about that shit later, when things have calmed down and your credibility isn't going up in fucking flames right before your eyes.

If I read right what's posted on other board, the pilot in question was in BoB recently for couple weeks. He was kicked from BoB corp because he'd rather continue his usual doings (pirating on his own in his personal mothership and scamming people) rather than participate in current BoB vs Everyone conflict.

The identity of the pilot had been previously connected to a CCP employee. When petitioned to CCP's internal affairs division, the person in question chose to quit the work at the company rather than have his exposed character undergo the usual rename etc treatment. Quite idiotic. so perhaps the game is better for everyone this way.

Of course CAOD section of EVE-O forums being the usual political cesspit, you'll have people focus first and foremost on the fact the moron in question was briefly allowed into BoB corp, so then they can mysteriously allude to said events in way that puts the in-game enemy in the worst possible light for these without knowledge what exactly it's all about.

More reasons why CCP's developer identities policy is idiotic -- they are vulnerable to blackmail attempts and knowledge of their identities can be used to alter the game balance even when they aren't doing anything wrong gameplay-wise.

That doesn't protect the dev since the blackmailer(s) can still make it public which character the dev is playing which means bye bye dev character.

Another Dramabomb

This is from Krugmans, evil hackers website, as posted to the Goonfleet public thread.

The head of CCP's Events Team was yet another member of BoB, this time in Evolution (at the top, there are many quotes from BoB saying no GM's are in with them).

Some of the quotes below are K's, some the Goonfleeter(?) who posted it. It's a bit confusing. Apologies for the multiple quouting, and the length.

    Last week I outed Enslaver, and I posted about why I did this. A lot of you had a problem with how he was innocent and so forth, and there were many accusations of dramawhoring and being BoB alts, depending on which side of the conflict you are on. But the key point is this: nobody is innocent here. I have made mistakes, done things I shouldn't have (jokingly ask for a mothership/titan from BoB is one of them), and I can own up to that. Everyone with information and power eventually misuses it, either consciously or by accident, and that's just a part of human nature.

    The specific reason I outed Enslaver was to test if Arkanon was up to his task, and he was not. But the reason I out GMs is because the game is rigged, and I intend to either unrig it little by little, or inform every single participant of where and how the game is rigged.

        As with all changes in an environment, especially in terms of leadership things become unsettled. I would ask everyone to bear with us during this time of change and things will improve shortly.

        1) Evolution does not have any Devs or GMs in the corporation.

        2) To the best of my knowledge, no member of Evolution has been found guilty of a cheat or an exploit.

        3) As far as I can tell (120 members after all), no Evolution members have ever received warnings about using cheats/exploits.

        4) No Evolution members have been banned, temporarily or permanently.
        There has never been a good reason to believe anything CCP representatives say. Even more so, if they are talking about Band of Developers. One need only read up on the T20 incident to verify that. Well, to GM Ender's credit, he did say that in 2003. Perhaps Molle and BoB didn't start cheating until after that post.

        Take for example, the newly created corp 'RUS Elite', which is an alt corp designed specifically for Creating an empire space war on Evolution (and two other corps - EV and techell I *think*).

        Now, don't get me wrong - I'm all for empire space wars (we have several active) - however I find the concept that they can freely switch between RUS (to be safe from us in empire) and RUS Elite (when they want to fight) is cowardly, and possibly against the way the designers intend the game to be played.

        I mean, they are basically getting the advantages of an empire space war, with none of the disadvantages. They can hit our non-pvp pilots in empire, however we can't hit theirs?

        Could you comment on this and give me your insight?

        - Take out the tower and you can shoot defenses w/o problems (not sure if they still fire)
        - Pop launchers first, they are spammy


        I'm not sure if it'd be more efficient to shoot the defenses first, or the guardian ships. We're almost sure to lose if they are using dampening scorps (coz they force you to get close, bringing you into Citadel range).

        Make a copy of ur EVE folder*, rename it Shiva or whatever u like. Create shortcut etc.

        *to speed up the process delete all the chat logs, screenies etc from within ur EVE folder before copying.

        This is just disgusting, and basically - I'm not going too. I might come back in a few months, who knows - but as it stands EVE = teh lovely for me.


        You guys have been great, all the way through beta and into release, don't think I've ever had so much fun with a group in an online game.

tl;dr: Head of ISD, the "event GMs" of EVE, is in one of BoB's most influential corporations - Evolution.

Plus possible event botching/fixing, and god knows what. Might all be hot air, but judging from these logs, it looks like he's legit.

    Hi all,

    I would like to announce that Aporat is no longer with ISD.

    He was the subject of an investigation by CCPís internal IA team and CCP have decided to remove him from ISD.

    Unfortunately I have no further details than this, so Iím unable to tell you anything further on this matter.

    I would like to add, I still consider Aporat a good friend and stand by him, so please donít think any less of him.

    Kind Regards,

    Nebulai

    Hi guys,

    I feel the time has come for me to step down as the VA of the events
    program. Iím no longer putting the effort into the program it either
    deserves or requires. Iím not happy to take a back seat in a position that
    requires someone who is motivated and willing to put in the effort. With
    recent transpires, both in my personal life and within EVE and ISD I need to
    refocus my time into other avenues that are less stressful.

    I feel Iíve done a lot for Aurora and Iím perfectly happy leaving it within
    Galenís more than capable hands to lead Aurora onto the next stage of its
    development and furtherment within EVE.

    I thank you all, and CCP for the last few (4!) years and I hope my time and
    effort into the program has been recognised and appreciated. Iíve made many
    friends and I appreciate everything youíve done - I wish you all the best
    for the future. Please pass on my thanks to the people at CCP that have put
    up with myself even during my irate times and helped further the goals of
    Aurora, these include Nathan, Gauti, Ginger, Wrangler and of course yourself
    Kieron.

    With your blessings, I will leave the volunteer within four weeks (being 8th
    April), allowing ample time for loose ends to be wrapped up.

    Galen Ė youíve been a great co-lead to the team, you know you have my
    eternal thanks and Iím sure youíll do wonderful things with the team. You
    have my utmost faith your right for the job.

    Kind Regards,

    Neb.

There exists the possibility that Nebulai quit before CCP discovered his involvement in EVOL so he could avoid being found out, yet was too late to actually avoid this.
