Short version, a pilot from my old alliance LAWN got into an argument with alliance leadership. Knowing what I know about LAWN alliance leadership, this does not surprise me in the slightest. And like wronged and vengeful corp directors across EVE, he responded by dropping Blueprint Haus sov in nine systems and stealing 47.5 billion ISK. This sort of thing is so routine in EVE that normally it wouldn't even be worth talking about. By corp theft standards, the amount of BPH's loss doesn't even count as paltry.(1)
And yet the response of Viger, Blueprint Haus's CEO, is nothing short of nuclear melt-down and unending eternal hate hate hate so much vile hate. There are teenagers that can't summon up this level of righteous smiting anger.
We intend to make your toons blacklisted for most of EVE.For the record, Blueprint Haus members for the most part fit the old cliche of Northern Coalition no-PVP-all-care-bear-all-the-time to an absolute T. There are certainly exceptions, but a lot of the time you couldn't drag them into fleets if your life depended on it. They were miners and industrialists and plexers and proud of it. The average security status of BPH's 137 members is 2.3, for Heaven's sake. They would build capital ships and super-caps for alliance members... as long as you didn't mind paying over market value for them. Don't like it? Don't buy them!
We will protect EVE from you.
There's a commonly bandied-about word for this sort of EVE player, but I won't repeat it here. But I'm sure most of you know the one I mean. I normally avoid stereotypes, but this time it fits.
From this, you'll no doubt recognize and appreciate the amount of ISK flowing around BPH at any given time. So to see this level of rage over barely enough ISK for one super-carrier... yeah. I found it funny. Really funny. Oh no! Blueprint Haus might hunt down and destroy Legras wherever he goes... forever and ever and ever and so much vile hate.
...unless he sells the character the very next day, of course.
Presumably, he's secured a new e-mail address as well. Gods, I love this game sometimes.
(1) Though having this amount of personal ISK would certainly be gratifying.
