It appeared in the losses on your character sheet ? on the corporate losses sheet ?

Do you have a bounty ? was that bounty reduced ?

Just the facts.

MTUs seem to be creating a lot of whining, ganking, tears and rage so I'd say that they are working as intended.

A perfect CSM candidate!

VOTE MTU FOR CSM!

A vote for MTU is a vote for yourself!

If someone blows up your POS or any of its units in highsec that records a killlmail, so why wouldn't one of these?

You put something in space that belongs to you, if someone blows it up, why wouldn't they get credit? Lets not even get started on customs offices.

I understand where the OP is coming from.. I do a lot of pirating so I also run a lot of missions to counter act that. This would agitate me as well since I care about both my and my and my corps battleclinic numbers for future recruitment, but I counter act that just by not using the damn things lol.

This is coming from someone that hopes that both jet cans and anchored secure cans end up with the same rules as the MTU's mind you. I mean com on CCP, let us blow up anchored secure cans in belts and just get a suspect timer with no concorde.. :) you want player interaction... so do I lol. I mean afterall it just makes sense with the new MTU's

It still amazes me that people are suddenly now showing concern for CONCORD's refusal to respond when an MTU or MDU is involved since CCP maid it clear that neither attacking a mobile deployable nor retaliatory fire for said attack, even in high sec, would not invoke CONCORD well before Rubi even launched. Didn't they state this numerous times?

"Tomahawks?"

"----in' A, right?"

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

"----, you pay me half that and I'll hump in some c4 and blow the ---- out of it my own damn self."

So... rather than remove it, they just made it legal.

It's a consequence of the new CrimeWatch system. Whoever you can legally fight can legally take your stuff, because it makes no sense otherwise anyway.

Uh.. Not really. What they did is make it so it just doesn't work any more. There's no 'flip' if you can't make your victim go 'suspect.'

I hear that if you leave your drones out, and set to aggressive, it will scare away these thieves, once they see a flight of drones shooting/heading towards them.

Hello everyone,

When doing some mindless carebearing in l4s some random guy got in and flagged him self in hope of me taking the bait, bothered by my ignorance he destroyed the MTU i had on the field. Didn't bother me either since it had only junk inside. Only later i noticed the loss in my kill mails.

Personally i think it's an unfairly easy +1 kill.

Why don't these things get protected by concord rules?
Why are you free to get a +1 kill on pilot owned object?

Let's be clear, i have nothing against pilots who do this, it's quite a good income and may lead you to a nice billionare ship kill.

I just want to read other people's opinion on this.


Yea, that sounds stupid. Don't expect any common sense from GD though.

You might think it sounds stupid, but MTU's are mostly working as designed, the only major hiccup with them is a bug in the drone code, which is old, spaghetti like and likely to be broken some more before it's fixed.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

It's not a bug. It's quite consistent.

Lol I'll give you that, personally I hope it stays, any attempts to fix it would probably make the drone AI worse than it currently is.

Too bad you can't abandon an MTU. (As in right click, abandon, as you can with containers.)

Pon Farr Memorial: once every 7 years, all the carebears in high-sec must PvP or they will be temp-banned.

so as i disagree with OP and thus am apparently a goon......could someone tell me where to submit about 5 bill of pvp losses from the last year?
