When Retribution was in early state of development there was talk about ship type bounty. You could place bounty for ship type (like hulk). What happened to it? I haven't heard anything why was ship type bounty removed from development table.

Hey, that's right what happened? I liked that one...

There's nothing worse than an EVE player, generally considered to be top of the food chain in the MMO world, that cannot smacktalk with wit and coherency.

CCP decided the development resources were better spent on highsec.

wouldn't that actually be an argument for having bounty on hulks?

It is still alive and well the last time I read, although not run by CCP. Wasn't/Isn't goonswarm offering a bounty of 100 mill for 10 Exhumer kill logs?

Two of the defining characteristics of a carebear are wanting other players to play the way the carebear wants and whining on the forums for the game to change when they don't. Yet I see more threads on these forums from gankers than I do miners whining about wanting the game changed to suit them.

You are assuming CCP want you to kill hulks. They don't.

Technetium has crashed since then. Goons were paying for hulk kills because they were making a huge profit every time someone bought a new hulk, 70% of the sale price by some estimates I remember reading.
