If they're being called Kill Reports then when i log in i expect Lengthy paragraphs and numbers of battles from the same day and prior. I also want names. Ships used obviously. And Their favorite brand of cheese. OTherwise in my mind. It will not be a report.

New killmails are good

Kill Reports is a stupid name, everybody is gonna keep calling em killmails and by changing a name like that you just create communications gap between vets and new players

See: Motherships -> Supercaps

There should be a rather awesome pic here

Please allow logistic ships on the Kill Report. If I have repped a ship dealing damage, I should show up in the involved parties and get the kill statistic.

And the Kill Report should be sent to all involved parties, not just the one dealing the final blow.

Hey guys

For a while, we've been talking about global killboards and all the awesome stuff that comes with it (leaderboards, weekly contests etc). Linking killmails in chat to other players means that you'll effectively have access to that data, making our global killboard project slightly problematic. That, coupled with some security concerns means that we'll have to withdraw linking killmails ingame.

Just to make it clear, we're not pulling this feature because we don't want you linking killmails, we're pulling it because we have concerns about the impact on our global killboard project and making this massive amount of data available in a more graceful manner in terms of security etc.

It makes me sadface, but hopefully the tradeoff will be a better system down the road.


Quick update: We're going to retain the functionality to share war info, as it's a pretty cool part of the feature. Non-war killmails will still not be part of the feature until we iron out some kinks.


Hey bros, here is an update to your update:

We fixed everything. You can now link killmails in chat! Thank Tuxford and Punkturis.

Kill reports still take a while to generate and show up. There should be a in work icon generated on the Combat Log showing that it is being generated.

If i dont know something about EVE. I check https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/ISK_The_Guide

See you around the universe.

very nice those new features...

QUESTION: dont know if anyone already mentioned the idea, but would it be possible to add a "Copy Killmail Information (English)"-function to the game, that copies the killmail in english, regardless of the language of the client itself? many killboards work best with english killmails, but still many people dont want to use the english client...

i hope that i dont make a monkey out of me and the copied-killmail is already always english, cuz i never ever used the client in my own language... SCHNITZELSTRUDEL...

offtopic: hey soundwave, looking forward to see you on AT eve-tv... and is guard really that small?

EVE-Kill will just need to offer services above and beyond CCP's in-game version. Such as:

- Being able to see all kills within a particular constellation.
- Being able to see recent kills by ship class.
- A graph of kills by hour for the last 72h for whatever I'm looking at

How about the people that don't want to be part of your global killboard? Remember when PvP wasn't all about killboard efficiency and KM-whoring, or when getting intel on your enemies was actualy hard?

First off i want to say what a really nice job over the past few months u guys have done to the KM (kill report) report system.
though one thing that was always on my want list that was right below implants =) was KM data for corporate hangars and ship hangars on carriers, orcas, ect... it always bugged me that u get a km of their ship cargo but not of the corporate stuff that u blow up. considering it has more room to put stuff in than the ship bay most of the time. + the ships u blow up with their fits. i understand this would be quite a undertaking as it would get complex with the ship bay and fits on the ships. any idea of this stuff is possible in the near future?

Since you are changing killmails a bit, I wanted to ask about something related to the new kill reports and war reports. I suggested something similar to the war report that has been introduced a while back, but it was on a fleet scale. Currently, battle reports on the killboards only show kills made in one system at a time. So, if a ship jumps through a gate and dies on the other side, it goes on a new battle report. Also, they may show ships that are not actually associated with the fleet if someone has killed a ship and then kills a ship (or is killed by a ship) involved in the battle.

The suggestion that I made allows a log to be made which shows all kills and losses which took place during a fleet. Any ships lost or killed in any system while the fleet was active are logged. When the fleet is over, the fleet report ends. This allows for a complete, and accurate, battle report to be posted on the killboards.

Also, why do you guys think this is the end of killboards? There will still be a need for our kills listed on a corp or alliance level. Just because CCP is including the interaction to make it a bit easier in-game, it doesn't change that. Unless I didn't read something I should have.
