All fine for fun, but please, put under game client generic options a checkmark for auto declining all duel requests.

Thank You.


So much this. Window-spamming is abusable in many forms (such as fleet invites), and there should be an option to murder it if we choose.

Speaking of which, you should also look at fleet invites.

Someone asked earlier about displaying the won duels. I'd like to expand upon the concept of persistent information with duels to something like a character sheet entry (win/loss/duel) or maybe something on the kill report or even a notification sent.

The reason is for corporations like my own. One of the only rules we have is that you honor 1v1s or you will be kicked. If you don't want to honor it, don't take it and just kill them normally. I've had to go through chat logs before to figure out if the 1v1 was accepted or not when complaints have been made. It'd be nice to have a simple 'you said yes' notification to work off of.

If they can be honorable let us hold them to their honor?

A truly dumb idea. I am going to risk losing my ship and contents in an uncontrolled environment? If you want to duel wander low-sec, easy to find someone willing.

We have corporate duels where we use cheap ships and equipment, and it is fun because everyone is relatively equal.

At least you included a box to block all the idiots that will be challenging you.

While I want there to be a way to do relatively consensual 1v1s (since the last mechanic was stupidly removed due to some poorly though out crimewatch changes), this is dumb. This is Eve, not WoW. No duels, no arenas, none of that.

Yeah, because you couldn't 1v1 with the current mechanics.

no you cant due to crimewatch...

Yes, you can. It's very easy to have a 1v1 without anyone else interfering with the current Crimewatch mechanics.

But whatever, we better have the ability to block ALL duel requests indiscriminately without blocking other forms of invites or communication at the same time. If we don't then I and many, many people will be quite pissed off.

Furthermore all killmails resulting from this duel mechanic should be shown as such, although that's not as important.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

Care to explain how?

And don't say 'warp to a safe, then have one go suspect'. Because if the other side want to, they can warp in.
'Be in the same Corp' isn't really an option either.

Woo! CSM XI!

Just make sure the ability to block all duel requests is built in before you release this feature into the wild.

Oh, and instead of the swords, it would IMHO be cooler two silhouetted human figures back to back holding pistols.

I think you read duel and stopped there. They aren't proposing a safe style of combat beyond anything other than two people being able to fight in high sec without drawing the ire of concord. The word arena doesn't show up in the blog at all.

As for the idea of leagues, these while brillant in my opinion should be organized by players and not by CCP. at least not with this system. If players want to organize leagues on their own to be able to fight in a semi-controlled enviroment then more power too them. I want EVE to remain as much a sandbox as the next person and veiw dueling as just another tool to play with in said sandbox.

So you can guarantee 100% that there won't come a 10vs10 "duel" in any future because it hasn't been mentioned yet. Brilliant. Thank you.

Have to agree with Schmata Bastanold... The first rule of EVE has always been that if you aren't prepared to lose it then don't undock.
