Unholy Rage

CCP has gone on a rampage against Macro'ers and ISK sellers recently, banning up to 6000 accounts on a single day. The result? This image from the dev blog should help explain it:

CPU Per User dropped a huge amount in the days after the purge. That helps against lag, desyncs, etc.

Whoever says macro'ers don't hurt the game is wrong, wrong, wrong.

Read the whole thing. Lots of graphs.

    Wow! Thanks for posting this K, the original article shows some amazing stats on how much this was having on New Eden. I hope they continue to be vigilant.


  2. This is GREAT news! The market forum has some great info on this too. They noticed almost immediately when this happened :) CCP must be writing some tools that calculate the cpu usage per user and tracking the greatest users. That will tank quite a few of the market bots! WOO WOO!

  3. The Ingunn population graph is the best :)
