Unless said hostile tack over was done by using a keylogger Trojan; that will never happen. Though to be quite honest, if you are dumb enough to fall for one of these scams maybe you shouldn?t hold the keys to the corp wallet.Hopeless Bastard said:Call me when an EVE player calls the police over a hostile corporate takeover where, literally, billions of dollars are lost.
Well, I think it's a status thing to be honest. People do it because they can in many cases, especially when it comes to virtual chat modes and such like Habbo. It's like any other indulgence, or fad from the "haves" that the "have nots" don't get.Stormz said:Anyone who falls for an obvious scam like that deserves to have their items stolen.

Its an economics simulator mate; all about the ISK, and if somebody wants to buy ISK with the USD? it doesn?t destroy the game, it IS the game.Therumancer said:When it comes to EVE, the massive RL money market for ISK and things which seems to be more or less ignored (and actually encouraged it seems) by the guys running the game, is part of what makes things such a big deal. I didn't like how the game worked to begin with, but the very idea that someone can legitimatly claim to have destroyed $20,000 worth of in game property owned by another player makes me nauseus.... as it destroys what games should be about (IMO). Really when it comes to this kind of thing the only game that makes be feel more queasy than EVE are the "Entropia" games where people are throwing around maddening amounts of money more or less because they can.
They do have a physical form. Electrical signals are physical. Light being emitted from a monitor is physical.flaming_squirrel said:
