There was one event of mass trolling on EVE in which one guy literally destroyed $10,000 for the lulz. He spent a year working his way up a corporation until he had access to their assets, then he took all money and the largest ship on the game. He used the money to place a bounty on his own head then flew around in his unbeatable ship rubbing it in everyone's faces. He eventually destroyed it himself. Bare in mind all this could have netted him over $10,000 dollars, but he was so committed to trolling he'd rather see it burn.

well thats more being an asshole, with a hint of trolling. The only real "trolling" was cleverly getting the ship. The rest was actually him just being an asshat.

Your sense of time is strange. "spends months building it" - "destroyed minutes later"

Spend months building ship.
It is finally finished after months of work.
Minutes later, it is destroyed by an ambush.
Not exactly how that even went down iirc, but that's fairly accurate.

Can't say I haven't done something similar in other games, though on a MUCH smaller scale. People tend to get a little diabolical when they're lonely.

The in-game currency in EVE can be spent on real world items (such as graphics card and in-game playtime -quoted from the article above), so while this $10,000 here was probably never spent directly as real money, the value of the in-game money spent would be equal to $10,000 real world money.

It is not about money. It is about sending a message.

It was not about money, it was about sending a message.

pick a source of your choosing.

TL;DR:the main executor of BOB took everything, destroyed the alliance and quit the game, locking out trillions of trillions of isk and items forever

A huge alliance with ********* of money, also they were constantly warring but kicked everyones ass until a spy in the ally put in the final blow wich cost the ally trillions of isk.

i think they disbanded in 09 or something.
