@rox_lukas @winterblink @HilmarVeigar @CCP_Masterplan would know better than most the special kind of pain that would be involved with trying something like this. He used to tell us truly harrowing tales of working with that code and almost inadvertently creating Skynet.
@rox_lukas @winterblink @HilmarVeigar @CCP_Masterplan I'll attempt to give you some idea of what I mean. I last heard this story maybe 10 years ago, so I may not remember every detail with 100% accuracy. I'm pretty sure they use it as a warning to new Devs at CCP about the pitfalls of over-ambition... #tweetfleet
@rox_lukas @winterblink @HilmarVeigar @CCP_Masterplan It goes like this. There was this line of code in the game from back in the early days, before even the launch of the game in 2003. The dev that wrote it left no note as to what it did, only a note that said "DO NOT TOUCH THIS!" and his initials. #tweetfleet

So who wants to hear a story about the libertarian bullies who ruined EVE Online's roleplay scene for several years? #tweetfleet
Our story starts way back in 2005 when The Star Fraction alliance is founded by Jade Constantine. You may recognise the name "Star Fraction" as a reference to a Ken MacLeod sci-fi novel. Don't worry if you haven't read it. Jade clearly never did either. #tweetfleet
Even by 2005, Jade Constantine already had a... colourful reputation among both the EVE roleplay community and the game's playerbase at large, mostly on account of their involvement with the black-hole Mary Sue character Revan Neferis. #tweetfleet
