I've read that SOE had an issue a few years back with some devs and a pvp guild in Everquest getting in trouble over some favoritism issues with gear.
Here's something I've had a problem with since the launch of DCUO.
We had a player that pretended to be a disabled young girl but got busted, eventually, in voice. This person, for the longest time, would flood chat with some of the most inane tripe. She/he/it had also decided to bug the hell out of me any time they saw me online...because I told them to can it. The player told me, one fine day, that I wasnever going to get any better. That their character would get stronger and none of mine would. I shrugged it off and went about my business. I have noticed, though, that my damage doesn't scale very accurately as I progress. I know that clipping/burst damage can cause a difference between players, but even some friends will watch me keep up, attack-wise, and still not burn enemies down as quickly or get nearly the amount of damage out as a similarly geared player.
I'm nobody special but could a dev or someone actually nerf an account? Adjust settings to sort of downgrade someone?
I don't want to seem paranoid but it's just something that has bugged me.
Also, the player that I had an issue with......they knew an awful lot about upcoming features that were almost a year away.
