You didn't explain why this was newsworthy.

ALODs are our longest-running series, and are novelty pieces. They go under the category of 'chortle at the stupid'. Feel free to search for 'ALOD' in the search bar.

Forgive my dumbassery, but what does ALOD stand for?

I think pooki needs his own series then.

That's the one.

"as they realize that they are unable to dock."I doubt that applies in this case as X-70 is an NPC system.

He was purged, because Dreddit has a no recruitment scamming policy.However, it's only for a month, and it's not the first time this has happened. He'll be back.

That's taken out of context. That line is talking about how other people get doomsday'd on station undocks as they cyno in, not this particular scam.

So dont trust TEST recruitment??

If you pay them, you can probably trust them more.

If you don't know where they live in real life, then don't trust them. And even then, maybe not.

Don't trust people that you have no reason to trust. Also speak to a diplo.

I thought Test didn't allow recruitment scams, guess I was misinformed.....

Don't need to :condi:

In the most recent TEST SOTA, Montolio explicitly permitted general members to scam.Those interested in joining TEST or renting in HBC Fountain space need to contact the diplomats listed under the Alliance description in game. Those folks are the legitimate contacts you need to talk with.

The moral of the story is. Many players take EvE as it is. A game.

Wait for it... (for a month)

Lol ist Mac guys now AAA? Lol come on, like they wouldnt want you humiliated vs a Super? Now days supers are commonplace they only gain from this. Its what he gets for trying to flip, sides even if one side treats its guys like dogs, he was a flipper and he got SC flipped :)On the part of the Test guy very very well executed plan, I applaud you. Also I tried playing from afghan when I was there and gave up, it was just to hard, so you get extra extra bonus points from me for sticking with it.Wow im so impressed about Test, im sorry AAA guys but im becoming a Test fanboi in alot of ways.They admit they suck at PVP [in which they have become 10x better] They dont act all hard and try to chest beat all the time, and they take the game lightly and really have fun with it no matter what happens. Im a true hater of the Blob and really think its killing Eve but thats not the blobs fault its CCP.If you offer someone a way to win or a way to get rich like the Tec faucet for GSF, you cant blame them for using numbers or Tec, its CCP`s fault for leaving a broken mechanic in place and its not an exploit, its just being smartTest you have done great in this game and you went from a tiny pet alliance who flew rifters to a powerhouse who basically runs HBS/20k Pilots with PL one of Eve`s most famous Elite PVP Armies in just a few years.You went from nothing in Eve politics to basically not being able to talk politics without mentioning TEST`s name. You went from very little power with your Rifter Army`s to Blob`s and Hordes of guys in Apoc`s and carriers and now are putting guys in Super caps.You have adapted to almost every situation you have been put in....We will probably fight one day to end the blobs, and my entire career you have been around you have been my enemy, but dammit if I dont love you guys, its hard not to TBH.IMO 4 Years running you guys have done nothing but doubled and tripled your power and influence each year.Great job to Test as a whole [Although its a little sad, guys with supers may go other places now not trusting you] but a very well executed steal and AAA won as well, its just one more pilot who seems like he was jumping sides, but he got punished :)GJ to all involved, you keep amazing meAlso I love it was a Mac Vot guy you did it to, its like they didnt lose enough supers in DRF war....LolAnd theft is 100x harder than just ganking him , I cant believe you got him to be so stupid.Onl thing I will say that would be really sad is if this was a RMT transfer setup to look like a theft, then I would look really stupid praising so much.

Recruitment scams are nothing newsworthy. The usual recruitment scam involves the scammer collecting a “security deposit” from his mark and sometimes a bundle of ships that the mark wants moved to their new nullsec home. While uncommon, some cases involve the mark jumping to a cyno (usually provided by the scammer) to their new nullsec home in a carrier loaded with ships, only to be doomsdayed as they realize that they are unable to dock.

Nynjato is not one to be trifled with such petty hauls. He is a member of TEST deployed to Afghanistan with the US Army; being stuck on a laggy satellite Internet connection does not leave much in the way of gameplay possibilities, but is sufficient for some fun in conversation windows. He found his mark, a former Macabre Votum member named EliteSlave, poking around the public recruitment channel looking for a new home. After a discussion regarding his future status in TEST, EliteSlave was provided a cyno by Drakk3n, Nynjato’s accomplice, and allowed to eject from his Aeon in a TEST POS in Pure Blind in order to dock in a nearby station and apply to his new corporation. Nynjato proceeded to gift the Aeon to fellow TEST member Dirk Action.

The moral of the story? There are plenty of players who are rich, fat and gullible. This is a fact that many of us take to heart as we find other players with excess ISK reserves to put to better use.

An amusing screenshot taken after the act.
The complete haul for those readers with a taste for schadenfreude.
