Doom (EN1-75278 // now deleted)
Previously the Dominion NPC.


Knowingly giving out a large quantity of NPC resources to a player in their alliance, which was then used on on failed bids during ship auctions and used to buy credits. These resources were freely given away.


This issue was discovered during routine checks of NPC accounts and transactions, and is an unfortunate case of an NPC handing out resources from an NPC account to benefit a specific player working as a ‘minion’ within their alliance.

A thorough investigation of both accounts took place and it was discovered that the resources had been initially used on failed bids for ships being auctioned, before being traded for credits and then spent on other resources and avatars.

I have been able to reclaim all of the value gained by this player through the use of NPC resources, by deleting avatars and ships under construction. The remaining resources have already entered the player economy and have passed through so many hands that it would be unfair and too complex to try and extract them further.

The punishment for the NPC is a complete game ban for a period of three months. This person is also immediately removed from their role as an NPC and is henceforth banned from holding any game staff positions for an indefinite period, reflecting the complete erosion of trust between the game administration and this player.
