Not :)

It seems everyone is getting bounties on 100k. Perhaps the minimum amount should be raised. 1 million or perhaps 10 million, to make it a bit more serious

I agree. 100k is a silly amount, and it's being thrown around for the same reason.

So when everybody has a bounty, then there's no difference in having a bounty.


I think the player base is trying to grief the game designers.

Make them expire and it would be used seriously as well I think, also make the wanted tag a bit smaller lol

Perhaps we should make the minimum 500bil so that only Chribba and the goons can put bounties on people....

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Exactly! I just got in EVE tonight and I was asking about it in the HELP chat and right away, 5 or 6 pilots drop a bounty on me just for the hell of it. Now, it is up to 3.3mil + ISK and I have not even left the station.

Pretty much, I got a bounty on my head and did not even play EVE mechanics yet. So even if you are not provoking anyone. you can get a bounty on you. That's dumb!

Raise the initial bounty to at least10mil and if no one get you within a month or so... Lower the bounty by a percentage until someone raise it again.

Bounty should only be inflicted on a pilot that deserve it. NOT ME! LOL.

Also if a pilot decide to place another amount of that pilot, he can only do it once for a week or so, therefore when you place a bounty, make sure you are placing it for what it is worth.

Thx, DEIFER.

There should be an administrative fee of 1% or so when placing a bounty. That way as long as we're being silly, we can be sinking ISK as well.

A bounty does not necessarily mean a kill right however. If it did it'd matter, people will get bored when the novelty wears off. Early days people

Also if it gets high enough you can always claim your own ^^

nah the small entry level is fine. It adds up if you are a bad guy.. and if not nobody cares. HOWEVER, there should be a mechanic how you can get rid of the bounties without exploding. For example by paying them yourself. I mean what should freighter pilots do to get rid of the bounties? They never pvp or anything like that.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Please show me an example where claiming your own bounty is a good idea. (Hint, they changed payout)

That is actually a very good suggestion. It will solve the problem of people not wanting their 100k isk bounty, as well as become a neat little ISK sink :)

If they expire within a reasonable amount of time no-one will probably bother putting serious bounties on anyone

I like it, I've been throwing money around in high-sec like candy. I think it was the Christmas gift to be honest. CCP are there sitting in their office in repressed glee just trying to keep the secret until they tell us :)

https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=2254392#post2254392 - An example of a purpose in EVE.

I kind of think that things are fine other than two things mentioned.

1. Cancellation of Bounties by the person that sets it, this should have a fee for adminstrative purpose to make it something you consider such as 100K set, you get back 50K back on cancel, or you could link it to the escrow system where like a market order your skills could set the cost up front and then the amount in your wallet, like that - might be and interesting link to the trade skills tree and if you go negative maybe the bounty reverses on you for fraud...lol.

2. A link to EVE-Gate for this feature and to see it there.

What is the problem?
No one will suicide gank you or war dec you for 100k.
You can even blow up your own noob ships until the 100k is gone if you don't like the wanted sign.

10% and your starting to get serious


had a rethink on this

10% Concord Tax when Bounty is placed
10% Concord Tax when Bounty is collected

tax should be non-adjustable to maximise the benifit as an isk-sink


The Tax man double & tripple dips (and sometimes theres 6+ taxes on 1 item) on revenue collection Concorde should too.
