During the last week, the Russian Eve Online community has been rocked by rumors of the banning of RED.Overlord (R.O.L.) leader Big Bas and his reported eleven accounts. According to the eve-ru forums, Big Bas received the ultimate form of punishment as a result of detected illegal Real Money Trading (RMT) operations. RED.Overlord, as it stands now, is being managed by second in command Ghost Storm while having Big Bas relaying orders via TeamSpeak.

According to our Red Orchestra source, the petition was made by a player who provided the proper evidence to CCP who took immediate action.

Aside from the obvious shortcomings, Red.Overlord is also reported to have lost four super-carriers as a result of this banning.

While nothing has been confirmed, there are reports that the disgruntled player was a member of Fallen Angels (FALG), the corporation that left R.O.L. mere days before the banning. There are also reports of a schism inside of R.O.L. with Minifoegann, CEO and leader of Fallen Angels delivering this caustic alliance email prior their departure:

From: Minifoegann
Sent: 2011.04.07 20:03
To: RED.OverLord,

o/ ladies

Fallen angels will be leaving the alliance due a few reason the main reason being the shit alliance leadership and the rmting whores that are in fsb.

To the Euros we love u guys and gl with shit leaders hope u guys find new one’s and new fc’s. much love. You guys need some more eu guys to fc. <3 shame we have to leave u




See you on the battlefield

Red.Overlord had an interesting history regarding RMT. A notable former player, SirLordex, was rumored to be the son of a Russian aluminum tycoon who allegedly spent $100,000 USD in RMT and subsequently in PLEX after caught by CCP.

    It's not 4 supers, it's 2 supers and 2 titans. Big Bass was not the one who got banned btw, it was 1armor1, I don't know what his role in ROL leadership is. Here is a translation of what he (1armor1) said on eve-ru:

    <да, правда. все чары в бане (в сумме 11 чаров которыми я логинился, часть из них не мои). в том числе 2 титана и 2 мазера. а насчет причины – они все некрасивые. официальная формулировка сср "многочисленные нарушения еулы" >


    <Yes, it's true that I got banned. All in all, 11 accounts that I have ever logged in on got banned, including 2 titans and 2 motherships. As far as the reasons for the ban go – none of them are pretty. Officially, CCP stated that the ban was for "multiple violations of the EULA".

      You're a moron when it comes to finance, RMTing doesn't add or remove isk from the system. Though still not a bad plan since the anom nerf will affect isk supply and make it more valuable.

        Your a Moron RMTing can totally add and Remove ISK into the system.

        Rats are just Rats till you collect bounties that dont come from an economy or fund but from a unlimited source.

        Hence Botting for 1 Hr adds 25 mil ISK to the economy.

        Buying ISK and getting caught takes huge amounts of ISK made from somewhere that was circulating in the economy and is Frozen/Destroyed.

        WTF are you talking about?
        In real life since we cant print unlimited Money your theory holds…Not in Eve.
        If they changed it to make all the money payed on Ship insurance or all the Tax went to an account where Bounties were paid out of then it would be like real life….Its not, its unlimited ISK.

    I Think this article has no evidence to back it up but rather is in support of evill russian rmt bots.

    First the guy stated his (and some other ppl accounts) were baned for eula violation (like passwird sharing between players and thus account sharing)

    Second the lordex was BUYING isk from outside sources for rm, so it is more than possible that the NC was the seller. I do wonder, where their moon goo goes.

    Third – even if there was a case of rmt (ie selling isk for real life money) this has no relation to russian players of the DRF

      even people with little love for russians note that en24 is sooo biased against them, so this article is not surprising. however, you got the wrong guy again… see, dear mr.

    FALG had a conflict with ally FC due to their absence of discipline during a CTA
    FALG left the alliance with hatemail and wrote a petition to the alliance CEO.
    So CCP banned charmasters who went through the sale of moon materials and built supercapitals and "investigate this issue"

    Flags were on a trial, and they could not have access to important information, so their petition was based only on their will to shit.

    On the other hand, getting rmt'rs banned, now thats good. It would have been more style if he did it not cause of revenge, but out of principle. But then i'm asuming he had knowledge of the fact before they left for other reasons.
