|I have several trophies just called "Squall", because I accidently selected all of my items to rename. No clue who they belong to.|
|Also just wondering, is it against any rules to be in possession of fake ears that were changed years ago?|
|Or someone made the trophy years ago. Because Gand is not dead, though he might as well be.|
|Interesting then. I thought they fixed renaming them relatively early on. Unless there's a way around that...|
|Nope, not Gandypoo's respawn. Gand, as far as I'm aware, is still alive, he's just been going in and out of activity.|
|Var is not Gand's recreate. |
|Been under the impression that Varlathotep Al`Jormungandr Ragnvaldansson is Gand's recreate. What with the name and all.|
So that's most likely a legit ear.

I'm fairly certain the ability to rename trophies was removed long before that, which (in my opinion) makes it a fake.
|While we are on this there is one on the market that is Trophy of Jormungund Gand, yet I would think the passing of someone infamous might have bit more fanfare which makes me think its a fake to but maybe its real dunno.|
I agree with most that Teniel, Keir, Kirov and Veynom are all definitely fakes.
|The ones for Teniel and Keir are definitely fakes. |
BTW, Blackholes do leave corpses on capships. I had Teniel's corpse on the GnM for months before it was finally deleted. I decided not to take a trophy, so there is no Teniel ear.
Keir's ship was deleted from the database during Red Scenarios, thus no way to have a trophy.
|Yeah the ID #s is why I thought they was fake as well. And the fact that Veynom is in that group of ears... just seemed odd to me.|
| Kirov Quel Droma's may or may not be fake. A member of Alissma (and former Imperial) did kill the Grand Moff. I can't recall if trophies were available at that point or not.|
| I knew of this issue when I started the list. Having a trophy that was renamed to be realistic is the biggest problem I have (aside from me thinking that NPCs were dropping ears at one point in time, either due to a feature or a bug). And those ears are examples are the most extreme cases of fake trophies.|
Most of those I would have hesitated to enter, but when it comes to less famous characters, I cant make a guarantee those aren't fake either. I need to depend on others to point out the fakes, because a lot of history occurred before my time here. It certainly isn't foolproof, but given the options available, it seems to be the only way.
|Trophy Trophy of Kirov Quel Droma (ID# 140493) is fake, the ID is way to high to be real.|
|For interest, here are the ID numbers on the ones I assigned to Xakic:|
- Trophy Trophy of Beauba Fettt (ID# 131884)
- Trophy Trophy of Illygn Ackmin (ID# 73572)
- Trophy Trophy of Kazak Tarn (ID# 142593)
- Trophy Trophy of Keir Santage (ID# 21565)
- Trophy Trophy of Kirov Quel Droma (ID# 140493)
- Trophy Trophy of Raider Aspect (ID# 612)
- Trophy Trophy of Ranma Saotoma (ID# 109688)
- Trophy Trophy of Teniel Djo (ID# 7049)
- Trophy Trophy of Veynom (ID# 1797083)
- Trophy Trophy of Warrick Philbin (ID# 138525)
I guess Hal or someone renamed them as a joke.
|I would have to confirm at least Corvis/Beauba's is fake, he is still alive. As for the rest Im fairly certain they are too.|
|I'm guessing not. Unless the DB reveals such information?|
Though with those ears, if they've been with Alissma for awhile... I'm going to guess that Hal was buying ears and trolling some people. It's something he'd have done. Especially Raider. lol
|So, for Trophies before a certain time (when ability to change name was removed) it is not possible to tell if the Trophy could be a fake (unless you know something about the character)? And even then, if a character was dead and two Trophies with same name popped up it may not be possible to tell which was the 'real' Trophy....?|
|Raider Aspect is Owen von Ismay (his handle pre-name change). So he's still alive.|
Pretty sure all of those are fakes, actually.
“ when I hover over the image I get, e.g. "Trophy Trophy of Teniel Djo" --- is this what you see on ears that are not fakes? ”
Legit trophies do read "Trophy Trophy of NAME" on mouseover, yes. The first Trophy is for the item type (it's a trophy), and the second is the name of the item. Someone must've just renamed those back when it was still possible.
I don't know if Raider's is fake, but the others are for sure.
