That’s what I call beating the system! Gaming and manipulation, playing the game or gaming it on a different level in the game than what most players are playing on. No wonder its many capsuleers personal perception (mine too) or belief regardless of the reality of truth or whatever else that a certain group is just about running EVE and laughing all the way to the ISK bank and rolling over in it.
To me in what I personally believe which is my own opinion, that is the real endgame in EVE/New Eden, beating the system and being able to manipulate it to your own gain or group gain. That to me is a whole different level of gaming to say the least, otherwise we are all just pawns in the grand scheme of things or someone else’s game. Gotta admire how some people play this game and the lengths they go thru to do it.
So I guess that may help explain part of the reason why some Datacores are now in the dumps for ISK value these days since FW revamp when Datacores were added vs Research Agent exclusive.
Update: Found the Official EVE Forum thread related to this exploit and manipulation as reported by EVE News24. Again Wow, just Epic!
