Hate mail after putting bounties?

I have been hanging out in the Help chat channel and Dodixie local handing out a few bounties here and there (ok more like lots of them) and i have been getting some vicious hate evemail!

Is anyone else getting lots of hate mail from people you put bounties on?

The worst are 5.0 sec status carbears and nullbears.

That's just funny. I wonder how many of them will be afraid to undock because they do not understand the mechanics of the new bounty system?

This is to be expected and works similarly in most areas of the game. Stealing a exploration site in lowsec is usually taken with good humour or a shrug. No one really gets angry about it. In highsec you occasionally get people who sound like you mugged their elderly grandmother when you do the same.

Came to me earlier that CCP should have put a "Reason for:" attached to the bounty. People can't change their ways if they don't know why the newspaper hit them on the nose.

Well one person told me they were going to come to my house and sodomize me.. another wished i'd die in a fire.. for a lousy 100k bounty i'd say thats a BIT of an over reaction.

For me the reason was being so inconsiderate as to say hello. I guess in EVE people get hit with the newspaper simply because other people are sadistic asshats who enjoy hiting people with a newspaper just for the sake of hitting them..

Seriously this is a game for cyber bullys, I hope CCP fails miserably.

I can kind of understand it from a role playing perspective though, if they've been enjoying having a high and improving sec status, it ruins that 'image' to have a big wanted plastered on their portrait.

Now you see what we get on a regular basis.

High/null sec hate mail, the best mail.

Two things I can tell about you (unless you're trolling). You are new AND you didn't read up on EVE online before downloading it. EVE is well known for its....unique..... community (which wasn't an accident, Iceland experienced a drop in violent crime in the early 2000s, because all the evil criminal psycos were EVE online DEVs).

Hell what most MMOs call Griefing, EVE online calls Tuesday night.



It's no one else's fault that you've chosen to play a game before understanding what it was really about.

If you didn't already know, CCP are saying NOT to place bounties on new players.

You have been warned.

You're absolutely right, I should have spent more time to figure out that EVE Online is nothing more than a 10 year old highly repetitive video game with psychopathic trolls for a community who enjoy inflicting pain and misery on others "for the lulz". Sorry I'm just not used to video games being so stressful and predatory.

If CCP had any integrity they would warn new players about what kind of community they are getting into before they sign up, but I have a feeling that level of honesty might eventually bankrupt a company that only releases a new video game once a decade.

You have no idea what a cyber bully is. Given that you are quiting over a paltry two million isk bounty that nobody is likely to waste their time on its clear your skin is far too thin for this game and you would have quit anyway when something equally small happened to you.

Yes well, people aren't listening... because the feature is created in such a way that is all but encouraged it to be abused and used to harass other players, much like this video game in general.

Why am I bothering to sit here and spout so much negativity some might ask? Because I just paid $15 for this crapfest and I'm gonna get my money's worth one way or another. Roll

I wonder then they qualify as "not new" players anymore, and how am I going to know that placing bounties on them is off limits?

I've been playing this game for like 5 weeks and even I can see you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Go home, no one here cares about you, thank you for your $15.

I agree to an extent. But this is par for the course as far as CCP is concerned. Release new content, then spend the next few weeks sorting it out.

They will eventually put some sort of block on new players, that maybe lasts for 30 days. Until then, it's best just to avoid newbies.
