So uh, lets see that video of yours, until you post it you are just ****posting.

I don't need to. Everything I say is infallible.

I wrote some true EVE stories! And no, they're not of the generic "my 0.0 alliance had lots of 0.0 fleets and took a lot of 0.0 space" sort. Check them out here:

@CCP Alice (I think that's the right dev)...


Instead of a 'dislike' button, allow us to set bounties on bad posts.

Thanks! :)


That could lead to some interesting situations. Big smile


I'll take this as confirmation that the devs are officially considering this. You might as well implement it - it's not like people who don't like what you have to say aren't placing bounties on people already. This happened to me earlier - might as well just make it a button push in the forums so they don't have to switch to the client.


It would also be nice to update the forum portraits with the wanted tag. Big smile

ITT: New player who doesn't understand how bounties work. Have fun getting ganked by other gankers Pirate


I know how the new bounties work, and i'm not worried at all. Should i be scared of undocking? Why? Probably you would, but that's is a carebear way of thinking that i won't follow.

Keep manufacturing junk, fighting rocks or whatever you do and have a nice day.

On the contrary, I'll have fun making ISK while blowing people like you up Bear

Threads like this illustrate exactly why we have needed a working bounty system so badly for so long.

No, there are plenty of other people who can't read.

It is isn't it.

It's just a shame that each of those killrights represents a previous loss for the person that generated it.

Why keep the mechanical penalty that the players now have the means to enact themselves, in this wonderful player driven world?

As a total carebear who likes mining and making things who, up until last week was about to give up on this game because I felt that I would never be able to get revenge against all those who have wronged me (check my kill board, there is been a few).

I took a good look into this and rubbed my dirty miners hands together.

At last a way I can get my own back.

So today I sold my kill rights, all of them, and a few hours after doing so, a notification popped up saying a kill right had been completed.

I checked the kill boards.

My loss, 50m, their loss, 58m.

Victory.

Shortly after members of the pirate corp, threatened to come and find me and kill me. My simple reply, I have deep pockets, for every kill you make on me: I will add as a bounty on your corp, every kill right: I will sell.

I cant fight you, but others can and you will have to lose 5 x my loss for wronging me.

I swear, I could almost taste the pirate tears... Or is that carebear tears?

Now I understand why all them pirates for all these years complained so loudly as soon as there was any threat to their power. It was now time for them to feel like victims.

I have not once, in all of my game time in eve, felt like I had actually "won". I felt like the beaten up bottom of the pile pesant that gets kicked around all fhe time. I didnt make this kill, but it felt like I did and it felt good.

So much so I sent the people on the kill mail a thankyou email and some extra ISK with encouragement to keep up the good work.

Oh revenge is so sweet.

Thank you CCP for allowing carebears to encourage the pew pew in others.


Working as intended!

This is amazing, and I'm so glad that it's being utilized well Big smile

Both carebears and gankers alike can be held responsible for their actions now through the fury of bounty hunting boba fet wannabes.

As a pirate living in lowsec, I feel no less safe than ever before. This patch has given me plenty, but no level of security has been taken away. I have been given more opportunities to kill within my home, lowsec. I have been given more opportunities to use more ships in more places. AND this update is going to convince PVP noobs to chase after me for my bounty and then hand me free killmails. So, miner, I'm not really sure what you're so happy about.

I'm still going to gank your Hulk.

I'm back!

That idea is genius honestly, this man deserves business.
