Team Five-O have been slaving away at unraveling and tweaking the aggression system in EVE Online, generally known as Crimewatch, for almost a year. Now, CCP Masterplan has written a dev blog that goes into the details of the new and improved version of this system.

To read it, click this link.

This change will effect EVE as we know it. Please leave your comments and feedback in this thread.

For those who were saying that "crimewatch will highsec even safer than it already is", they clearly didn't think through what these changes actually mean...

EVE is not a simple game, but at least there will now be charts describing how it behaves! Big smile

Ok, my first impression was this: CCP Masterplan has the best dev name so far.

Back to reading.

Make it idiot-proof and someone will make a better idiot.

1. Not sure why you get 15 minutes for ratting. Seems a bit over the top.

2. No ejection? This would prevent people from ejecting from tier 3s, guaranteed skill point loss, which it's fair to say is one of the most hated aspects of the game. Also reduces probability of pod escaping by ejecting before hull hits zero. Doesn't bode well IMO.

Everything else looks fine.

why can't i eject when i have a weapon timer? thats was a often used strategy in low sec to safe your pod if you know that a instant locker is around you.

eject short before you explode and warp while everyone is pointing your ship.

edit: but ohterwise.. good stuff!

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

Do I understand it correctly that if two players are in a Limited Engagement, and a third player reps one of the two, the third player becomes attackable by everyone and not just the people in the LE?
