A rousing cheer like a gladiator received in the arena upon victory would be nice also

Will you be able to duel people in the same militia with no hit to standings?

At least give the option to blanket block all these ****** invites.
If I wanted to have a dueling system I'd play WoW. I do not want to have to deal with constantly clicking no to duel invites.

Excellent news,

Small request though: can we get rid of the medieval imagery in our future sci-fi game please? The icon on the dialog box conveys the message quite clearly but the whole knights and armor thing that is present in EVE grinds my gears. (same goes for armor icons, corporation logo's etc)

Two swords to be replaced by two spaceships going head-to-head?

The Renaissance through 19th Century would all like to have a word with you.

Dueling is more Steampunk than Medieval really. And doesn't get more sci fi than Jules Verne.

the 1 vs1 Duel thing is fine and should promote simple fast fun gameplay, make sure to remove any standing loss for participants.

The Fleet vs Fleet idea is one of the most horrible things I've heard however when placed in High-sec.

Make it lowsec only and add some nice betting options, and making it a sure fight to the death deal. It'll be a nice boost to activities you can do in lowsec, which are no FW features. But please remove the sec standing loss for participants. and make the battle arenas Probable so people can **** in your pool, instances are bad Mkay.

With can flip duels being a casualty of the new and improved Crimewatch, it's nice to see CCP followup on their assurances that they wouldn't forget the value of being able to drop gloves with another player and fight it out.

Yes. As long as you set up the engagement before you start fighting so it becomes legal, you should be OK

This is sick i have been asking for this for years (moreover 2 to be exact)

only thing this is missing is for people to bet money on the outcome...

or even for there to be money placed as a bet to encourage people to fight (almost like a bounty but you get paid in full)

like i come across a 1 month old noob and i say i bet you 20 million isk i can beat you all you have to put up 100 000...

so pretty much i would like to see a bet put in the contract and for people who are watching the fight to put a bet one participants too...

At the end of the game both the pawn and the Queen go in the same box.

Meh, this change is simply adding back what was removed so tbh the people complaining that it making eve like wow is stupid. Please add an option to automatically block it though, since I would likely use it as often as the can flipping method.

Also, please fix POS.

Given high-sec protects people then why should you circumvent that?

high-sec does not protect people.
It creates consequences for those who commit illegal acts.

Not sure this a great addition really. Enforce gambling on it, at least 1mil a duel winner takes all.

Note that there is no special exclusivity or isolation from outside interference just because a duel has been agreed. Other players can interact with the combatants exactly as normal, providing that they are prepared to accept the normal Crimewatch consequences. (Inteferring in a Limited Engagement via remote-assistance can net the assistor a Suspect flag, making him a global target).

I don't get it..
why you call it a DUEL if others can still Interfere ?

I think this is great idea. I agree with the blanket block feature, though. Like, have an option to just outright deny all duel requests so that they don't pop up at inopportune times. Some people also had good ideas about betting, too. For instance, stick an option in there to place bets between combatants and/or open it up to spectators.

Duel Request Sent --> Duel Accepted --> Bet (Y/N)

If yes --> Equal amount between players.
If no --> Continue

Open to Spectator Betting --> Y/N

If yes --> Spectators have 30 seconds to place bet.
If no --> Duel starts.

I'm not a dev of any type in anything so I don't know how this would work out. Like, have all these options to choose before the request is sent out. As you said before, Masterplan, if the players are on the ball then this shouldn't be too much of an issue to get the duel going.
