Would it be ok if 12 different people were involved? Or 2 with 6 accounts each? Where would you draw the line and how would you suggest any limitations placed could be implemented?

Also, why is it okay for one person to mine with 12 accounts, but not suicide gank, which is a much more involved process.

Yeah the best part of the qty argument is to keep said freighter safe only requires one additional account maybe two if you are super vigilant about it. If you really can't afford a second account or don't want one for "reasons" you can still use a courier and play solo just fine.

Isn't multiplexing a ban able offence now?

Broacasting to multiple clients is banned, operating multiple accounts is not.
I assume Jason knows the rules considering he streams his ganks and if he was breaking them the AG crowd would be in an uproar by now.

In other words the system isn't actually locked, you're simply afraid to go through it.

True, I also chose to ignore the amount of ignorance that abounds with said crowd.

the problem is that they don't get enought penalties doing that compared to the amount of money peoples lost when piloting a freighter and the amount of money CODE and other corp gain doing this .

the second problem is : kill rights

please CCP :

steps to make :

1 : lower the kill rights cost or make it no cost (or make a cost cap )
2 : lower the kill right cost for a particular pirat each time the same pirat kill someone in high sec .
3 : make a system looking if a high sec system is constantly under pirat attack (of the same persons) and make that CONCORD roam in large fleets in all the system after let say 30 min of repetitive attack of same pirat persons in high sec .
4 :(optionnal) (don't know if possible) limit the number of client possible running from the same IP adress
this can prevent a high sec system lock
5 : make another high sec route around uedama and sivala (gank point) so the traffic can be derived to another route if needed and not making 40 jumps .

it is unacceptable that a SINGLE person can lock out a system with 12 accounts .
we are 30000 players live and we got annoyed by 1 man with 12 accounts .
i know a lot of peoples who say same as me .

gank will still exist , but in a limited way than it is actually .

thanks . viewing my feedback .

Next time you fly through uedama join the anti ganking chat channel to get some help.



The anti gank channel may have helped (remember you need to be at your pc and not watching top gear)

On a side note and I hate to say this but code pulled off a gank last night of pure class, remember these guys know how to do this they work together, watching the gank unfold at the gate was a site to see, sorry to the freighter pilot who lost his ship, AG tried to help but to no avail

Speaking of the anti gank channel what is the name of the channel? Is it "anti-ganking"?

Also, speaking of channels in general, is there a way to search channels? Last night, I typed in "anti-gank" and it made a customer channel with only me in it. When I tried "anti-ganking" it put me into a channel with about 200 people. Is this the right one? I just want to confirm!

Thanks!

It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning.

I do hauling, I am a hauler, among other things. I haul stupidly, that is, I haul in highsec while constantly wardecced. I survive (this is my main hauler, I do survive) by not shitfitting, ( although I claim to), using alts to scout, packing a good tank and by watching local.

That guy with the 12 alts with the same surname has done you a huge favor: He advertises his presence. You see that many of the same names in local you can safely assume its either a miner or a ganker, and in a .5 system you can write off mining. Permit or no, no one survives in a .5 system mining if that system is as high traffic as uedama or somesuch.

You don't have to sell in jita, there are other trading hubs. You are taking the risk to get maximum profits, which is the playstyle you chose. They are providing that risk, and that is the playstyle they choose. Running 12 alts is actually worthy of respect, it does require alot of juggling.

I can't remember if the standard "won't somebody think of the newbies!" cry has been raised but I usually block that out of memory intentionally for the standard reasons.

to sum up: Get off the spacepark lawn you damn autopiloting kids (shakes well fit & tanked t2 walker/wheelchair).

Nope it's not locked, it's a choke point by design and they're easily traversable 90% of the time if you're the slightest bit competent and not doing something silly.

Quote:
second : i don't cry
Your OP belies that statement.

Quote:
third : the 12 accounts are easily resubscribed with the loots from killed ships
four : simply as this : there is an unbalance between organized gankers risk and gain (even without the 12 accounts in one)
five : the 12 accounts/one person is unfair and unbalanced for the "normal" players (that play one or two accounts )
And your point is?

It makes no difference if the 12 accounts are 1 person or 12 people, and that it may be able to fund those accounts with loot is irrelevant. You pointed out the cause of any imbalance yourself, the key word is organised.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

1. Killrights don't matter on a flashy red character (-5.5, or whatever it is now).
2. See above.
3. It's called the Star Map. Use it.
4. Bad idea as it would effect all players not just the ones you don't like.
5. Regardless of this being a good or bad idea it's irrelevant as the gank fleet would separate half the bumpers to lock down both systems.

[6.] It's more like 37 accounts bro common.

Not getting ganked comes down the the player, not CCP magic.

I want to take a moment and discuss your overall believe that -10 pirates don't suffer enough 'penalties'. As a -9 something character I can tell you that it does suck at times to be in highsec as flashy red. Granted it isn't very often, but still it does happen at the worst of times.

More accounts is the path to this?
Is it possible using only one or two?

Counterpoint to OP:
Perhaps using scouts, either alts or I dunno... friends, would mitigate losses far more efficiently than badgering CCP for changes to the playstyle of others. You know the hot spots, obviously, so why not take some precautions when passing through or near them?
From the sounds of it you got smurfed right in the smurfhole.
Working as intended.


OP: What Omar said

To me, running a freighter through Uedama is like walking down the street, carrying a million pounds, while holding up a sign that you are completely defenceless AND holding a million pounds.

In real life, if you were to want to walk down the street with a million pounds you'd hire some bodyguards, wouldn't advertise the fact, and probably have some people walk ahead to make sure no neighbourhood undesirables were about.

In Eve, it's perfectly possible to do the latter, yet people continue to take the risk....yes it's easier and quicker....but costlier...don't do it peoples!

Personally, I started in a position of strongly disliking CODE, now I have come to see that what they do does add something to the game. I'd still like to try to stop them, which would need a major concerted effort by A-G, but it does bring something to hisec that was missing

Alt and proud
