Here you go.
A quick google of "eve online kill right scamming" brought this up as one of the top results.


Oh look, a three-year-old thread in which I outlined exactly what the system would turn into.

You bears enjoying your new Crimewatch mechanics yet? The ones that you so desperately supported in order to put a stopper on EVE's whole unmitigated sociopath griefer problem? I know I am.

So why not "Kramming"? Much better sounding...Lol

Yes!

Yeah! From now on when I see someone autopiloting with a killright, I'm going to shout, "IT'S A KRAP!"

Oh GOD yes!

All in favor of the motion to name the acts "kramming" and "krapping," respective to their particular traits and nuances, say "aye."

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:

so now seriously, hands down, what is your problem with me trying to get this out there? noone i know or talked to knew of or anything about this kind of scam, at least not in the way ppl know about the isk doublers or drunk buy order scam. maybe you already knew about it, but the vast majority doesn't seem to. when the kr's finaly showed properly in the overview there were maybe 1 or 2 guys hanging around jita 4-4. now there is 5 and another 5 on various gates on the road to uedama. so apperently this has become a more wider spread scam - a thing - worthy of mentioning.

don't like my term? you can call it "one-legged-fool-humping" for all i care...


This type of scam is nothing new. I remember seeing this when i was a noob. Like any other thing, it comes and goes in popularity spurts. Someone saw someone running an old scam..which was new to them...monkey see, monkey do. Next thing you know everyone's trying it. It does have names..killright scamming, insurance scamming.....kraiting..I get it..killright baiting..but tbh it does not need a name to make it a thing. Frankly, I'm seriously surprised you have never noticed this before. Can I interest you in getting your isk doubled? Hehehe.

If you're looking for notoriety, there are better ways to get it than coining a new word for an old action. +1 for not starting another whine thread though. Twisted

If I had a nickel for every time someone said women don't play eve, I'd have a bag of nickels to whack the next person who said it..

I used to be with it, but then they changed what ‘it’ was, and now what I’m with isn’t it. And what’s ‘it’ seems weird and scary to me.

not exactly what i meant (more sth like http://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Scams_in_Eve ) but i let you have this anyways, since it seems to me that you guys, for the most part anyways, seem to be determined to not want to understand what i mean with "thing" - that i made a discription with added terminology for a very specific way to make money of the killright system, which might result in it getting adopted by others - to keep riding the "i know that practice for a long time, that's not new!" train and to 'agree on everything but what he says'. so i'm sorry i dared to post in the forums trying to make this known and to add to EVE in my little way, i'm sorry all over the place.

however, apparently you have agreed upon the termini kramming and krapping ...which is sth ...i guess Ugh

i don't play real life, the balancing sucks!

As far as I can tell, the only real difference in what you described is that the ship is of a much lower value than the killright , whereas the system I have seen described makes it appear as if the killright will be compensated for by the bounty (and loot)

Kramming huh...that makes it sound so dirty. I'll never look at kramming the same way again. Shocked

Kramming / Krammers do seem to have grown in numbers quite recently other day i was going from Jita to Amarr nearly every system had someone sitting on the gates.

half tempted to do it myself.

As others have said, nothing new.

It's just more common now because they finally fixed an ancient bug a few months back. Previously the overview wouldn't show killrights, until you actively clicked on the ship first.

Anyway, speaking as someone who's done plenty of this, it's becoming very hard to get anyone to bite :-) Everyone knows about it now.

Well.... Some people claim that new Crimewatch seriously reduced risk in high-sec.

Yeah, I've seen this popping up more and more.

Nothing screams "I'm a trap" like an unfit Iteron V sitting 15k off a gate with a bright orange killright on it.

Yes, I need to know what the Kapitain and the barmaid should be doing in the spare time, while their Freighter cruises smoothly on autopilote. ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°)

stop being jelaous guys, oki? its not a new thing, i called it kill right baiting so far, but his credits are: he made a description, and a not bad mame :P and now the jealous ppl come to say "shut up a$$hat, its an old thing, and i know a better name, now i ruined your credit, so im not looks like a fool jelaous guy, but like a smarta$$..." youre not men guys, just silly kids -.- btw the krapping looks like a better name for it... xD if you have np idea what the kraiting is, you can think its something good. but krapping is definetly has to be a bad thing, so +1 for the description, and +1 to call it krapping =)

Okay that probably came across wrongly. :)

It's just that you did not mention it in your initial post.
And then you say it was you.

sorry i found that hilarious. (:
