New EVE Online trailer essentially sanctions jerk moves

Though I’ve yet to play a minute of it for myself, I love reading and hearing about EVE Online, mainly because there’s nothing else quite like it in the current MMO scene.

Also, the folks at CCP can put out some good-lookin’ trailers. This one is one of them, and while it’s not as “in-fiction” as I’d normally expect, the fun thing it does do is pretty much endorse mass griefing. In most other MMOs this kind of corporate gambit would be subject to the banhammer, in EVE‘s ultra-laissez-faire landscape, it’s fair game. Andrew Ryan would be proud.
