Ok, so this morning we get a nice new xmasy (? great word) VU. Of course, each planet partner is entitled to intro new items and such this, FPC's was mainly a bugfix for Medusa as we know.
But NEVERDIE? He intro'd some new items to (I'm guessing) his area of NI. Why does this warrant a thread?
Take a look at the next pictures; see if you notice anything a little... hmm, odd?
so this is about, 40minutes after the new VU?
Why is "insider info" still allowed - MA used to be this way in the past (oh hai imk3, rancher hat, suggababe's lulzy loots) but recently it seems has become much more professional about the way it operates. Cue NEVERDIE and his "amazing" production team.
It's not like I'm pissed I didn't get the items (wouldn't be hunting there in the first place), but it kinda makes a mockery of the system when a new "discovery" is found; because the person "finding" it put it there in the editor.
Perhaps a shark head and eye are worthless items (odds are they are), but what is stopping TEAM NEVERDIE placing the ultra-rare items, and then going looting them to make money from the community. It's hypothetical, but I wonder how annoyed someone would be if that soc looted a modfap or equivalent and sold it for $35k... little bit of extra income for his failing studio maybe?
Wouldn't mind an MA (at least FPC) response on this. Cos it's pretty blatant they're his mates (or worse, actual developers) abusing their insider knowledge to gain advantage.
