As you might have heard, over the weekend long-time small gang PvP corp "Blackwater USA Inc." (formerly of Gentlemen's Club, AAA, and Atlas Alliance, now part of Pandemic Legion) was renamed to EveCorporation12315533. The reason for the renaming? After review, CCP GMs determined that the original name was a violation of EULA. BUSA's CEO has been invited to choose a new name for his corp.
The corp has been active with its prior name for more than five years now.
I'm writing a full-length article about the renaming, interviewing the partipants involved (where I'm allowed to). But it also occurred to me that it would be fun to crowd-source a little bit of the background information-gathering for this piece. As a result, I'm looking for any corroborated information anyone may have regarding past forced renamings that CCP's GM team might have done over the years. I'm obviously most interested in renamings that have been done in the past for EULA violations. But I'm nearly as interested in provable stories anyone might have about "gank renamings." From time to time, you hear campfire tales in EVE about "[Corp X or player Y] ganked my freighter, so I submitted a petition saying I was offended by their [character name/corp name, depending] and CCP should make them change it and CCP actually did it, lol." I'd like to investigate if any such story is true or if they're strictly apocryphal.
Please post in comments if you have such a story, along with a contact method (Twitter, e-mail, Skype, etc.) that I can use to reach you. Comments with contact information will not be published. Again, I'm looking for stories with documentation behind them. Thanks!
