    A Rose by any other name...

    ...is still Real Money Transfer

    Syndicate Alliance Clockwork Pineapple has been engaged in widespread RMT activities for a while now. I took the liberty of saving the pages on their alliance forum that show RMT activities. Below you will find a download link to a zip file which contains the html. files and resource folders from some threads i had access to.

    Mostly using aliases, mostly just requests for "roses" to purchase. There is some cool information in there though, and it has some wider implications with regards to current nulsec powerblocs and why they are all blue to each other.

    Here are some interesting screen caps to show some of the content the download has

      Spoiler:







    Some impressive stats for anyone who has tried to make isk for themselves in eve the legitimate way




    Download link for the full set of forum saves

    I'm a IT infant so didn't know any better way to distribute the info without laboriously taking screen caps of everything or finding a free host that does php and fuck that, so you can just DL it yourselves and browse it at your leisure.

    At first I was jealous, but I don't think I could be arsed with the extra effort over 3 years to make 15 thousand dollars.

    Which probably shows how spectacularly lazy I am.

    200 bil per month with 11 chars is not too bad but not impressive either. 25$ a bil price on the other hand is impressive when you take in account plexes costing 800 mil and you can get 2 for 35$

    Aye, this is just one dude on the periphery of the CFC making dollah part time through sales to pretty much just clockwork pineapple, (and 4 goonswarm dudes he mentions). Made his college fund and left eve apparently, so fair play. Now imagine what some of the big players are making...

    Did someone report this to CCP? The casual language used in that thread strongly implies that this is pretty widespread and normal in Groon

    you can see how they all rally round their operation in defense of a newbie who is asking the wrong questions in game and is later kicked (hoopz).

    I dont remember ever meeting anyone that was into RMT or such, i thought it was just a myth that people said like all nullsec people are bad at eve etc..
    wow this is incredible. but 1500 dollars after 3 years of work im not sure its worth it.
    Could actually get a real job and make more cash...

    You missed out a 0.

    And yeah it's not much for 3 years but if you're just running some bots it probably doesn't take that much of your time. You could easily do this with a full-time job to supplement your income.

    Either way, this shit is spoiling eve for honest PvP folk.

    Yeah its clear "A Rose Pedelar" is just doing it as a side project. Im sure there's dudes doing this on an industrial scale, and there's dudes in groon who by the looks of it just sold isk here and there randomly rather than as their end goal
    He types $15,000 by the way
