Friendship Is Rare

Anyone who has read through my blog has a pretty good idea of what has made Eve a fun game for me. I dislike a huge portion of the Eve in general... the interface is awful, the player-vs-environment gameplay is TERRIBLE and it has more bugs than anything I have ever experienced in my life. By far. So why did I love Eve so much? It was because of the creative things that its freedom and sandbox style let me do. It was because spaceships are cool. Most of all, it was because I got to play with a really awesome bunch of pilots in The Python Cartel. Our core has been pretty close for a while and I talk to a number of them out of game and we play non-Eve games together as well.

Probably the person I have been best Eve-Online buddies with is Andrea Skye. We flew together very often and had great success. We chatted outside of the game quite often, shared account information so that we could borrow items/isk/ships and I trusted him more than anyone else in the group. Until today.

I have been absent from Eve for a few weeks now, only logging on to set skills and look at my mail. Today I checked my personal email to find this message:

Hi there spectre old pal.

I know you dont log EvE anymore, so I am sending you an email instead. What for you ask?

I've liberated all you ships and Isk. All I have left you with is 0.69 isk. I thought this would be funny as you once said it was your lucky number.

Anyway. Sucks to be you, I hope we can still be friends. It was purely business.

Please be more careful when giving out your password to random dudes on the internet in the future.

The most important part of the image he linked is this:



That is the remaining money in my wallet, a little over one billion ISK, being transfered from my account to his. He also was nice enough to take a number of ships that were sitting in my hangar in Resbroko. I don't have much use for what is left so everything I do have remaining will be given away and you can check this post for details.

I can handle a lot in Eve and the anger or effect is only about five minutes worth. This is not something I can deal with and continue to play. Having a majority of my assets taken sucks, but I could overcome it. Having my friends betray me is not.

Fuck you, Andrea Skye.

Yeah, fuck you Andrea Skye. And your horse, too.

Latro said...

I read Andrea's post about the theft and now I read your "reaction", yet he is still a member of the Pythons...

eonjunk said...

Ugh. That blows!

Persephone Astrid said...

So does this mean you're only paying 0.69 ISK to the winner of your joke-telling contest now?

Seriously, though, that's just rotten.

Spectre said...

Latro: Frankly I'm not sure, I have no been online much recently. I need to talk to our CEO about what is going on... I was under the impression that his "theft" earlier was a joke and he didn't actually take anything.

Based on my current wallet/hangar state and the conversation I just had with Skye over IM, he isn't joking about stealing my stuff. If he does suddenly decide its a big joke and gives it back, he's still a fuck because this sort of shit is a pretty big abuse of trust.

PA: I have some ships and modules left that were in other stations that he didn't touch. That is what I am giving away.

Letrange said...

Let me see, it's either
1) one of your usual "I'm quitting EVE" rants mixed in with some hired help. (aka you're messing with us again)
2) A scorpion situation. (aka karma)

Either way *shrug*

I dont believe this for a second.

I don't believe it either..

And spec, you lie like a politician. Try harder. =P

Sobhan said...

Wow that really sucks. IMO not so much the loss of your stuff, but the loss of a friend like that. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't gaining access to someone's account (regardless of the method, i.e. Getting the name and password voluntarily or though hacking) and taking assets or even logging into someone else's account a bannable offense?

Nashh Kadavr said...

oh fuck...

dude thats out of order.

you could be a real ass and get his account closed i guess.

sorry for your loss bro.

You made your bed, now lie in it.

Lars Lodar said...

So go on vacation and one of my most trusted buddies gets fucked over by another?

I'm going to see if I can get those back for you or I'll remove Skye from the corp.

But seriously you should leave this shit on the directors forum. This really gives us a bad reputation.

Cozmik R5 said...

*sigh*

Piwats...

Spectre said...

Sob/Nash: I'm already looking into that but I have a feeling I'm going to be told that I shouldn't have shared my account information.

Cozmik R5 said...

Oh, and anonymous comment posters have sub-atomic sized balls.

chimaira wolf said...

HAHAHHAHAHAHAH
Suck shit spectre

Morgan Rose said...

If this is true, I finally has respect for Andrea.

Parasoja said...

You gave somebody your password?

For serious?

Hallan Turrek said...

Yous trollin'

Khalia said...

If indeed this is real, I <3 Andrea Skye.

Mandrill said...

Serves you right. You DO NOT share your account login and Pwd with anyone, not even your mother. Not only is it incredibly stupid it also violates the EULA and is a bannable offence.

Rule 0 of EVE: Trust no-one, not even yourself and especially not a pirate.

whasamatayou said...

Surely, what Hallan said:

Jaggins said...

I vote on another excellent troll!

Baeryn said...

Stealing someone's assets by using their account information is against CCP's rules.

Andrea can be permabanned for this, and you can get all your stuff back.

And! If you don't want it, I'll take it.

Nathan said...

So if I send you .69 isk, will you send me double back?

Kyuzo said...

This is what happens when you trust other people.... heres a lesson for real life kids.

Remagen said...

Heyo spec, sorry to hear about this.

If this isn't some sort of stupid joke I don't mind sending 1 or 2 hundred mil your way; to get you back on your feet etc.

Ruppert said...

Can I havez your stuffz?

Cozmik R5 said...

@Rupert: you can't he doesn't have any stuffz anymore :))

Foehammer006 said...

sup. that's shitty.

lol

Anonymous said...

If you're serious about not wanting to play the game again, I strongly recommend you petition about the access of your account and take Andrea down with you. I've got nothing against espionage, scams and cons that occur every day in EVE, but using someone's account to pull everything Andrea Skye's pulled is another thing entirely. Burn in banination hell.

Anonymous said...

Not sure if serious.

real friends would have never exchanged account info.

aren't you the guy that scammed the pants of a bunch of people via 'Navy' ships?

This time it sucks because it's your iFriend that did it? No, this time it sucks because you are the victim.
