You can still get away from them if you move fast enough and dont stop moving.

But you have to be really fast, destroyer hull or below. Otherwise you probably wont make it.

Note that it is also a (seperate) exploit to avoid being destroyed by CONCORD in high sec when you gain a GCC

"it is considered an exploit to attack a target after you warp away from the grid where you gained that GCC"

so stay on grid and boomerange? Still WIN.

Avoiding the spirit of the law by trying to use the letter of the law, will probably not be looked upon kindly.

We are looking into how far this can be stretched. Even if you think you have found a loop hole, do not use it without asking a GM for clarification. Doing so anyway could still result in repercussions.

The spirit of the law means nothing. The Rules state "warp off grid", so until CCP alters this statement I see no clear proof of law stating that a ban is justifiable for this act of violence.

Say I am in 0.5 system with an ice belt. I then gank a Mackinaw with no tank. Am I allowed to warp to the sun and sit there so that Concord spawns and kills me at the sun instead of the belt? I will still have died and I will not have avoided GCC.

I would also ask for the quite fantastic exploit/bug where a webifier acts as a warp disruptor.

About 9-10 days now with no response to my petition.

Can this be sorted too?

Yes, if you do not kill anyone else after warping. Note that a software fix will be put into place that may or may not be more or less strict.

This is incorrect, we act on the spirit of the law, not the letter of the law. Tread that line at your own risk.

Is it considered an exploit to warp your ship away to a safespot after agressing and once there die without attacking someone else. The point of this being dying without giving anyone player to shoot at me and scoop the loot from my wreck without probing me.

For now this is not an exploit, but this may change in the (near) future.

The CCP Award for Loose Wording goes to Lead GM Grimmi! You may want to update it and state that you have to lose your ship within 10 seconds after you gained a GCC in highsec. That wont leave any loopholes that require petitioning.

I know one way to avoid CONCORD that would not fit the wording of that news item. (Not gonna tell you, ofc.)

If you take all the sand out of the box, only the cat poo will remain.

I know it would be impolite to ask you to kiss and tell, but it would seem that one way to do this would be to increase the response time of Concord. They get to the location faster and immediately warp scram/disrupt you. That or make it so that once Concord are after you, they have 0 warp time after the initial wait. So you warp off grid and when you land Concord is instantly upon you.

I understand the debate between the letter and spirit of the law and while the spirit of the law allows mercy, it allows allows a certain degree of arbitrariness. I want to comply with the rules as best as I am able and that means understanding what is expected of me.

As said earlier, it is always considered an exploit to avoid CONCORD. As for the loose wording, what you stated would invalidate some (currently) legal tactics and we do not want to limit our players any further than we have to.

"Hi, GM ****** here,

The issue is not specifically that you warp off grid but just that you warp. It will be fixed shortly anyway, so I wouldn't worry about trying to find clever ways around it."

I stand corrected. Seems they are fixing it.

When ever in Eve has a petition been responded to in under 5 minutes? O.o

TBH, Concord should be a player profession where the cop-players fly the concord ships and they get to chase us baddies.Pirate
