Don't let Mission Runners 'Decline' Low-Security Missions.

I heard about this exploit and it almost made me vomit.

The current mission system allows exploiters to base out in a 0.5 system to maximize their mission rewards
(the rewards are increased due to the risk of getting low-sec missions)

rather than factoring the additional risk, people exploit by declining any missions that take them into low-security space.

Of course the poor-state of low-security mechanics would need to be re-worked.


The Gate:
Permanently tanking sentry guns is trivial so establishing permanent high scan resolution 80km infinite point camps can be done with month old characters.

The Mission:
With proper skills and probing implants It is possible to get warp-able hits at 32 AU probes, this has become incredibly easy with the new mid-slot modules,

What I'd like to see CCP do:
Remove all ISK gained from the exploiters.
Add E-War to gate guns (ECM, Damps, Disruption, Neutralizer)
Require probes to be at 1AU or less before a warp-able hit is possible.

The fact that low-security space is broken, doesn't mean we should allow people to exploit the game.

Thank You Obama!

And the OP doesn't list the consequence for declining such missions, a big minus to standings. Which is one of the reasons to run missions in the first place. Roll

I guess EXPLOIT is the forum buzz word of the week.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

The OP's anger made me really, really horny. I know it's wrong, but hope it never stops.

yeah CCP needs to improve the exploit so that it actually does induce vomiting. Perhaps adding camera shake when declining a mission would do it.

It's only an exploit when they do something that was unintended by the game mechanics.

Hmm... you can't be serious.

Of all the complaints lately this must be scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

If this keeps up it'll be hardly even worth reading GD.

The most important thing I learned many years ago, was that GD on any forum is simply a more structured off-topic forum and should never be taken seriously.

+1 this serious exploit is killing the game! I find it morally disgusting that all all missions don't force people into lowsec! I propose that if you even think about clicking on an agent in station services then you automatically are undocked and autopilot to the nearest lowsec system . These clear exploits make me sick to the fiber of my being and must be stopped immediately.

FYI, agent pay is determined only by level and the truesec of the system the agent is located in, not the system in which the mission is set (could be a good change btw) I don't know why i'm explaining this though, since clearly a troll.
