CCP Games permanently banned three players for vandalizing the Reykjavik, Iceland, monument commemorating players of Eve Online, according to a post on the game's forums from community manager "CCP Falcon."
The monument, which was revealed over a week ago before festivities kicked off for Eve Fanfest 2014, was vandalized shortly after the expo ended. A sticker bearing the insignia of one of Eve Online's in-game factions, the Goonswarm, was placed on the monument's face and one player bragged about having scratched out the name of another player.
In his post, CCP Falcon stated that Eve Online community members helped track down those responsible for the vandalism, including players complicit with the vandalism and members of the vandals' alliances. Falcon called the monument's defacing an insult to the entire Eve Online community, and said CCP Games will "continue to operate a zero tolerance approach to dealing with harassment and victimization in the Eve Universe."
