So the replies to the OP perform two functions.

  1. Excuse the behavior and exonerate the entertainment the player identifies with. IOW: "I like it so it can't be bad".
  2. Validates their ego by identifying people that they can classify as being inferior. Which allows them to confirm to themselves that they are in turn not inferior.
 
One of the many problems with the excusing of this behavior I would like to point out is that if other communities have this level of anti-social behavior why then do we not see this level of 'game show of humiliation' in WoW or any other MMO? Where are the podcasts of people torturing others?
 
No, this is a symptom of the attitude of the game managers and the expectations that have grown up around EVE, expectations that laud anti-social behavior. It is the acceptance of, 'That's just how EVE works, It's not bad'. That acceptance breeds further pressing of the boundaries of expected social behavior. This podcast is an evolution of allowing anti-social behavior to not just occur, but be celebrated.

 

Mittani, one of the former heads of the CSM and a notorious bad guy in-game, once drunkenly ordered his alliance and people of the pvp orientation at fanfest to gank a person suffering from suicidal tendencies until he "gets over it". Mittani got hit with a sledgehammer for that remark getting a ban, removal from CSM and basically ending his in-game career to a large degree, he still controls his alliance and still has alts but no one really forgot that slip up and no one really trusts him anymore.

And the EVE community bands together everytime there is a catastrophe of natural origin ( earthquake, tsunami, etc) and donate heavily towards a relief fund set up by CCP (thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated this way up until now and this is a donation btw, I think only once was there a specially skinned ship provided by CCP but at all other times you donated because you wanted to either in isk or plex).

Have fun with your soap box though, I very much enjoy your type talking from the wrong end about a game someone told you about (I truly hope that because if you played and have this sort of opinion... does not look good on you).

Are people more likely to play the role of a Troll or Psychopath when playing Eve than when online in general?  What is the likelihood of an Eve player exhibiting Troll or Psychopath behavior relative to incidents of such behavior in the real world?  I don't know.  Neither do you, since you don't interact with all the tens of thousands of people who play Eve every day.  It doesn't seem impossible, but this one incident doesn't prove anything other than some people really shouldn't be allowed to interact with other people without supervision.

 **

 Just to be clear, I'm not defending the behavior shown.  I feel like "something should be done" too.  I just think the issue has more to do with the people involved, not the players involved, if that makes sense.  If there is a punishment, it needs to be something outside the game, not inside the game.  Restrict the accounts or something.  Don't add more game play unless your goal is to get more people involved in the game.  Which isn't a bad idea, but it's a different discussion.  Improving behavior should involve something outside of the game play as well, again, unless the goal is to get more people involved in the game or the game play.  For instance, player councils, player "colleges", etc.  

To me, the primary issue isn't whether the game environment makes people more likely to behave this way.  It's that the way the game is setup makes it more likely to attract people who *already* behave this way, and it gives them all the necessary tools to engage in that behavior, while providing limited if any tools by which other players can punish or deter that behavior.  What are the primary punishments and deterrents to severely anti-social behavior in the real world?  Death and/or imprisonment.  A game where death isn't permanent removes that as an effective punishment or deterrent, which leaves us with imprisonment.  Now this particular incident involved going outside the game to behave poorly, so it wouldn't directly help in that case, but some form of in-game prisons could severely reduce the in-game occurrence of undesirable behavior, to the point where many of the inherently undesirable people would remove themselves from the EvE community, both in-game and out.

Basically my point is that any game which wants to lay claim to providing a "virtual world" needs to allow for both crime and punishment, not just crime, because going halfway isn't realistic in the slightest, and for the vast majority of potential players, it isn't fun either.

Hey Devs, just so you know. The more you give us to play with, the more we play.

Im not a bad person, although I did pop transports in hi-sec, and I really do hate scammers having been a victim of them.

But, I finally just finished the whole thing and all I can really say is...

"sigh"

 

I miss EVE

I am surprised nobody has brought up the notion that the whole thing was staged. I am on the fence whether or not it is.

Eve has a very VERY fine line to toe regarding what is bannable griefing and what is scamming within the parameters of thhe sandbox. I am glad its not me who has to make the call because for me I could see the ban / don't ban going either way and calling it fair.

Though in general, scammers could use a good punch in the gut. Eve needs bad guys but I don't personally think scammers are the type of bad guys it needs. Warlords like mittens and pirate corps like the orphanage unite the community to defeat (or join!) The douches. But scammers operate docked and safe and funnel their money to other toons. So they're hard to retaliate against which is why I do see how the behaviour could be considered bannable

Problem is that this is not just about scamming. If it was then the scammers would have left the moment the guy gave them his stuff. This is about humiliation and sadism. The people doing this are clearly psycopaths and it does not matter that the guy being scammed is stupid/gullible. Since when is that an excuse for sadists and other scum to torture and humiliate them?

And CCP making money of this makes them as bad.

So you're saying that we need to excuse the pathological and sociopathic things people do in the game because of the things that the community have done as a baseline level of human concern? "Oh, it's ok that we have people in our game that torture others, because we sometimes ostracize people who try to get other people to commit suicide, and when thousands die, we actually feel bad."

 

Sorry, but those do not excuse the first. Civilized and socially well-adjusted people are supposed to do these things, you don't get bonus points or get to excuse the psychopath Erotica 1 because of them.

 

Have fun with your soap box though, I very much enjoy your type talking from the wrong end about a game someone told you about (I truly hope that because if you played and have this sort of opinion... does not look good on you).

Ending your post with a passive-aggressive insult and an obvious attempt to cast me as inferior just so you can help your ego feel superior does not help your case of EVE players being friendly and socially well-adjusted.

 

 

'Sandbox MMO' is a PTSD trigger word for anyone who has the experience to know that anonymous players invariably use a 'sandbox' in the same manner a housecat does.

I thought about the story

now either the player was some noob with less than 1 -2 months play time   or it did not happen

 

nobody plays eve for more than 2 months  and has no knowledge  of the scams

now I know there are some scams which can  still catch a experienced player off guard  but giving a stranger full access to your assets is asking for trouble  no experienced player would do such a thing

Being a EX Eve scammer, there are plenty of moments where common sense should sink in but it doesnt. The one i used all the time in the past was

 

"ill Double whatever money you give me" The victum would generally give me afew small amount at first to make sure i was legit, however would give in to greed sooner or later and drop a ton of ISK on me. To which i would just fly away.

 

We used to have corps join our alliance and we would arrange them liquidating their assets for us to build them better ships, and then we would just fly away with everything they owned.

 

Welcome to EVE, most scams are easy to avoid if you use some sense

Because i can.

wow so all ive gathered since my last comment is people actually feel sorry for this guy being scammed . So people should have no personal 

Responsibility in society?

Teala is exactly right here and its idiots like this that keep scammers in business to begin with. I cannot and will not feel sorry for stupidity and honestly if the guy loses his stuff and figured out it was a scam cussing and raging then he should of just accepted it and got out of speak. He chose to continue to be tormented in hopes of getting his stuff back. I do not condone behavior like this and the guys doing it no less deserve to get their asses beat down but sometimes people here seem to forget what personal responsibility is. I watch it on the news all the time people doing stupid stuff and then expecting to sue whoever or whatever business because they got hurt. Blaming CCP for the actions of some idiots and some excuse my french but some dumbass guy is pretty ridiculous and some of you here need to rethink things a bit more seriously. They skirted the rules and so did the guy being scammed so CCP is not liable for this mess. This guy learned a hard rule in life , there are pricks out there that will try and get under your skin and scam you. Be smart about it and not let it happen again. Just like I tell both my kids all the time if someone bullies you in school knock em the hell out .

And what is a person (like the victim in this incident) is incapable of using common sense for variety of reasons? is it still ok to scam and dehumanise that person even though you know he suffers from speech impediment, PTSD, anxiety and all other kind of mental and psychological issues?

If you see someone like that who is incapable of taking acre of himself is being harassed and laughed at in public..will you just walk by and ignore it or will you do something about it?  

Bad things happen because good people don't do anything about it. And anyone with a little heart would support this guy and try to help him out..i know i will.

No, re-read through. It has nothing to do with him being scammed. They had his stuff and continued on. Assets are not why  most people are upset.  He was tormented. What enabled him to be tormented was the thought of possibly getting his stuff back. 45 minutes in, it should have ended. But emotional attachment and mere possibility of regaining something was enough for Erotica to suck him back in. Claiming Erotica 1 didn't know what he was doing is a lie.   You push someone  over the edge and they do something stupid you bear some of that responsibility in my opinion. 

 Had these two been in the same room someone would have got hurt. Erotica 1 pushed him to the breaking point. Not a dam thing funny or entertaining about that. He didn't come out of character. He kept pushing him the whole time up until the very end. Not once coming out of character to say "Hey this got out of hand! Time to stop." I think this is the most damming thing for any defense he has.  People act as if no one can listen to the recording.

Was what Erotica 1 did all that bad?  I think that is a better defense if you are going to try and defend him. Was it his responsibility if another person can't control himself? Just because I deem a person stupid doesn't mean I can or should break them.  Every human is breakable. Just have to know the right buttons to push or correct moment in time.  Some are easier than others. I think this shows either a lack of empathy from people or the lack of understanding the situation?

What should CCP do if anything? No idea. I know that if one gets punished they both should. But it's not my call.

 

Edit: I don't know.. Sorry I just I've seen this to often in real life. People broken and pushed over the top. Some bad stuff can happen when that happens.  It can ruin lives. The fact that I listened to it happen in a mini game that someone made up as part of the meta for a mmo. It bothers me. I love Eve and the fact that CCP don't cave to the mainstream. I love the lawlessness of Eve. I even laughed a bit as Erotica 1 mocked the outrage going on in that thread.  I'll be quiet on the subject. I've posted to much in this thread I think. I just know exactly what Sohkar went through because I've seen so much in person. It's not funny and shouldn't be funny over a video game.

Welcome to EVE, most scams are easy to avoid if you use some sense

And what is a person (like the victim in this incident) is incapable of using common sense for variety of reasons? is it still ok to scam and dehumanise that person even though you know he suffers from speech impediment, PTSD, anxiety and all other kind of mental and psychological issues?

If you see someone like that who is incapable of taking acre of himself is being harassed and laughed at in public..will you just walk by and ignore it or will you do something about it?  

Bad things happen because good people don't do anything about it. And anyone with a little heart would support this guy and try to help him out..i know i will.

Yes, now let's make it sound like the victim was mentally disabled.  He is, according to his own statement in the recording, an air traffic controller, do you think they let mentally disabled people do this job?  Seriously...stop trying to make excuses for the guy that got scammed.   He screwed up.  He was greedy.   He fell for a scam in a game that is well known for scamming.  Unless this guy was just a couple of hours old in game and never heard of EVE before, he might not know, but even then I find that hard to believe, especially since people are ragging on scammers in trade hub locals constantly and warning others to not fall for the scams.  

As I said in a previous post, this guy knew it was a potential scam going into it...go listen to the recording.   He knows he has fallen for their little scam and yet he continues to play along.   Nobody is torturing him and forcing him to continue - except his own greed.  

Then, listen to him in the last few minutes of this recording.   He starts going off on a racist tirade, cussing, threatening people.   This is the kind of person you want to defend?   I don't care if he is ex-military...there is no excuse for that type of behavior.   Do I feel sorry for him?  No...he is suppose to be an adult.  He is playing a game made for adults.   He is making choices. 

As for your comment, bad things happen because good people don't do anything about it.   This guys own greed and stupidity put him into this situation...not good people.  He did this to himself.

 **

 Just to be clear, I'm not defending the behavior shown.  I feel like "something should be done" too.  I just think the issue has more to do with the people involved, not the players involved, if that makes sense.  If there is a punishment, it needs to be something outside the game, not inside the game.  Restrict the accounts or something.  Don't add more game play unless your goal is to get more people involved in the game.  Which isn't a bad idea, but it's a different discussion.  Improving behavior should involve something outside of the game play as well, again, unless the goal is to get more people involved in the game or the game play.  For instance, player councils, player "colleges", etc.  

To me, the primary issue isn't whether the game environment makes people more likely to behave this way.  It's that the way the game is setup makes it more likely to attract people who *already* behave this way, and it gives them all the necessary tools to engage in that behavior, while providing limited if any tools by which other players can punish or deter that behavior.  What are the primary punishments and deterrents to severely anti-social behavior in the real world?  Death and/or imprisonment.  A game where death isn't permanent removes that as an effective punishment or deterrent, which leaves us with imprisonment.  Now this particular incident involved going outside the game to behave poorly, so it wouldn't directly help in that case, but some form of in-game prisons could severely reduce the in-game occurrence of undesirable behavior, to the point where many of the inherently undesirable people would remove themselves from the EvE community, both in-game and out.

Basically my point is that any game which wants to lay claim to providing a "virtual world" needs to allow for both crime and punishment, not just crime, because going halfway isn't realistic in the slightest, and for the vast majority of potential players, it isn't fun either.

 

I think I understand your point, I just don't think it's a functional solution.  In game jails are game play.  They enhance the game for the players on both sides of the equation.  They do not curb or shape behavior in the game.  The other problem is that most humans past the age of eight or nine in Western cultures aren't obeying the rules because of the consequences.  They are obeying the rules because they either agree with them, or they believe in the idea of rules being necessary or good.  If jails are in the game, then they are just going to be part of the game play.  The "offender" isn't really taken out of the system.

 

The behavior that is offensive here isn't behavior that's acceptable in the game or in the real world.  I'm not talking about the scamming.  That's an acceptable norm in Eve's game play.  I'm talking about tormenting the other player, with the intent of driving them away from the game.  That is not acceptable behavior within the game or in the real world.  That behavior is also a oddity.  Most players would not do that.  They would scam, steal, kill within the context of the game, but because that is how the game is played.  Anyone playing it should accept those things as the norm.  For Eve players, they are "fun".  It's the other stuff that isn't acceptable.

 

It's also in the real world where the punishment, if there is any should be taken.  I don't run Eve, so I don't know what they should do.  I would consider being suspended from the game an appropriate response, and removal from any elevated positions within the game as well, such as player councils or the like.  Of course, they need to make sure the whole thing wasn't staged, that there weren't additional circumstances surrounding this event, etc.  Mostly, they would just need to make sure that the people are actually Eve players and that the events actually happened at all.

 

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

If this type of behavior is considered part of the game experience of EvE, then consider me unimpressed with ccp as game devs.

i do agree that when you sign up to play eve, you are basically consenting to let people try to take your stuff.  and that is part of what makes eve so engrossing.  but one thing that i think would be nice is for there to be some way of counterattacking the scammers.  Since every other form of "douchery" in eve has an in game counter.

 

some way to eject them from being docked would be particularly hilarious.  though pains would need to be made not to let the system be exploitable to make non criminals get ejected from stations.

You don't have to be mentally disabled to be incapable of making sound mind decision. Any kind of anxiety and PTSD disorder is enough. People like him suffer from sever mood swings and can easily harm themselves and others. On top of that he suffers from speech impediment. (which i am sure he didn't have from birth. I have seen a lot of marines developing this problem).

But that doesn't mean he is incapable of doing his job. What kind of decent human being would enjoy the misery and de humanisation of such an individual? do you know the amount of mental tolls it takes on a person when he tours Iraq?i know because i did one tour myself and that was enough for me to put a bullet in my brain after the things i saw. And he did it twice.

Yes he went on racists rant and got abusive but that was after almost 2 hours of mental harrasement (he even apologised for it). Erotic 1 knew the kind of person he is dealing with but he continued to enjoy it. I will write in cap for you... IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT SCAMMING. Its about laughing and enjoying at cost of suffering of a fellow human being. 

You are incapable of understanding the deeper issues i am afraid. Stick to complaining and ranting about video games in your blog. That is what you do best.

This is a great representation of the PvP Community as a whole. All PvP players love and enjoy watching others suffer. That's why they play these games not for "skill". I couldn't be happer to have them no where near me in any MMO I play. They can call PVEers carebears all they want I call them caring and sane Individuals.

Don't give me this, he has PTSD and unstable and is an air traffic controller...you can't be an air traffic controller and have those types of issues - it isn't allowed - period.

i do not think anyone in this thread supports this guy being tormented for two hours nor do i think she is not capable of understanding deeper emotion. Some of us though here feel that personal responsibility needs to be also looked at here as well. The guy was greedy and got scammed then harrassed , and instead of accepting it he played their game allowing them to have complete control over here. If the guy is incapable of seeing through stuff like this he needs parental controls on his computer seriously. No one is also condoning bad behavior on the part of the scammers in all honesty im probably harsher thinking then most here as I would love to see each of them get their jaws broken and suck out of a straw for about 6 weeks but thats just me and I will not get into that. People just need to realize here that things like this would never happen if it was a profitable venture on the part of the scammer. I see people on the official forums of games all the time complaining about how their accounts were hacked and when you get to the bottom of it they vaguely admit to buying gold or giving out their account email etc to scammers. Im not bashing the victim either here, I do feel bad for the guy somewhat but at the same time I know that a scam like that you would never in a million thinks people lack enough common sense to actually fall for that sort of thing. CCP isnt to blame here, the scammers are for sure but lets be honest if that sort of thing didnt work they wouldnt be doing it therefore the person being scammed lacks common sense to give all his stuff away.
