It has come to light that a well known corporation(Goonswarm) in the game of EVE Online may have gotten special attention and assistance from CCP. Now of course this is second hand information but according to people involved, employees of CCP were contacted through internal/external means(not in-game, but rather through direct contact of people working at CCP) means and assisted this corporation by intervening in a war.
CCP actually destroyed ship/s belonging to a corp(Thorn) that had wardecced this well known corporation after the well known corporation cried foul. Now this would not be big news if it weren’t for the fact that something just doesn’t seem right. According to some of the people involved, when this incident accord, it took less than 10 minutes for CCP to come to the aid of this well known corp. Supposedly, the members of this well known corp used a means of in-game petition to ask for help from CCP GM’s. Now anyone that has played EVE knows that petitions in-game are rarely answered in such a timely manner - no matter what the circumstances. In the case of this incident, it took less than 10 minutes.
This also goes against CCP's own rules to not interfere with in game happenings if such incidents occur within the rules of the game. It seems that they have reneged on this: to step in and actually destroy ships belonging to corps is pretty harsh treatment.
This brings into question if CCP, once again(pretaining to the infamous BOB incident of EVE), has people working for them that are showing favoritism to an in-game corporation?
Would be nice if CCP would respond to this situation and clarify what exactly occured and how it was handled, otherwise it looks like some people at CCP have been compromised and are in fact helping a corp via favoratism. B.O.B. 2.0?
