why you call it a DUEL if others can still Interfere ?
Because it's a duel?
There's nothing about duels that makes it impossible for people to interfere — it's just dishonourable to do so. If you choose pistols at dawn, the roving band of bandits that happen to find you, and decide to rob you blind, will not particularly care about the elegance of your second's cravat or the eloquence of the challenge you make to your opponent. They will just want you to hand over the guns, valuables and silk socks.

Why are we trying to give high-sec more of the "benefits*" of low-sec when there's limited incentive to go there now?

There are methods to deal with this in low-sec and have been for years.

You should modify kill mails so that the dual shows on the mail.

That's a great idea!

POSes could be designators for group vs group duels. That is when the challenge is issued and accepted, all ships near POS 1 can fight all ships near POS 2, irrelevant of fleet status. That way you do not have to wonder about extra fleet members hiding in safe spots, or added to the fleet after the duel starts. Just look at what is near the other POS and you know what has a legal right to shoot you. But for that to work we need to be able to place 2 POSes close enough to each other that you can in fact look at the ships near the other POS.

Is it possible to add a Friendly Duel check box that terminates the flag at structure? This would be a fantastic learning tool. :)

You might as well fight on sisi then.

The duals as described are just fine.

Duels in hisec

"I want a duel"
"No"

Fast forward

"I want your space"
"No"

My guess would be yes.

With the increase in shiptoasting, the Report timer needs to be shortened.

I want an option for us low and null seccers to automatically block duel requests so we don't get pop ups.

  • Challenges will respect the Block option in the contact list. If you have blocked another character, that character will not be able to issue challenges to you.

Expand this to be able to block whole corps / alliances and we are good to go in the topic of "chellenge bombing". OK?

Jeez.

All they're doing is taking an existing work around and giving it a nice sensible purpose built interface.

You people are acting as if CCP is trying to stop you from shooting other players, when they're doing the exact opposite.

No its not as we'll see in the next 6 months.

You want to fight someone in high-sec then what's the problem? Don't do it on station - oh look 99% of high-sec warfare fixed P

From the devblog: "As soon as a challenge is responded to, you can move on to issuing the next request, so setting up a 3v3 for example will still be quick and easy if everyone is on the ball."

If my math is correct, setting up a 3v3 would require 9 challenges. 4v4, 16 challenges. A mock alliance tournament match anywhere from 64 to 100. (8v8 or 10v10)

I fail to see how that is quick or easy.

But it does solve the 1v1 duel easily.

I don't like the direction this is taking us quite honestly. What's next, the loser of the duel reappears in a ghost ship and has to warp to his wreck where everything re-materializes?

There is a difference between helpful interface/game mechanics and the theme park handholding you get in other games. Why can't we have just this one game that is different from all the others? If I wanted to play WoW or Star Wars, or whatever, I would, but I don't. Why push me away?



Edit: Also, will "everyone spam duel request" be the new "everyone spam convo"? Or perhaps both?
