Right, reported this thread for locking because there is exactly zero proper discussion going on here. Nothing but trolling and insults being slung all over the place. Sorry lads, but I just can't watch this any longer.

alternatively, after a set amopunt of hi speed hits over a period of time, the freighter pilot gets a right to clear his way of the criminals impeding his progress in the form of a limited engagement type timer , where, upon activation , anyone in his fleet can legally engage the bumper , the downside being that upon activation, he can also be engaged by the bumper(s) .just think of the fun to be had... Big smile




re-posting this cos nobody seems to have noticed what with being so busy going off topic . easy to code, 2nd option all player driven consequences which will bring loads of content opportunities , whats not to like? Big smile
You forgot easy to exploit, 2 days after implementation MiniLuv and the New Order guys will be using it to get legal kills on all sorts of stuff.

schhhh, he really thinks it's a good idea


soz, there was a response as i was reposting this earlier. i think it's a brilliant idea, cos dontcha know i'm awesome? Lol

they can do what they want, if it means bumpers have to face consequences for their actions by their victims + fleet mates, fuggin awesome content .


example, 2 bumpers get a flag in uedama from bumping freighter pilot a at hi speed for several minutes, a large ag fleet is in system, freighter pilot accepts fleet invo from ag fleet, then activates his limited engagement timer on machs, who immediately engage freighter as code logi warp in to rep machs and ag fleet engage machs , while loging freighter , mayhem ensues when the catas warp in....

must I be a "shiptoaster"?

why must my gameplay match YOUR criteria?

Well, you are obviously ignoring the input of others towards a semblance of a civilized discussion in order to tar everyone with the same brush, if their opinions differ from yours. It's obvious that you're trying to make others' gameplay match yours!

Obviously, if you throw out hyperbole in ALL CAPS, it just screams childishness. Why not save capital letters for their obvious intended purpose - to capitalize sentences and for acronyms?

Every post you make confirms that you are indeed a shitposter.

Your childish attitude and name calling certainly do you no favours in that regard.

Some people were of the opinion that the WATER in FLINT, MI was not a problem.

Oh and you are also allowing your emotions to color my post's meaning:
- I sure DO NOT want to stop BUMPERS; I just want them tagged as CRIMINALS when they do it in HISEC..

Think about that a minute.. maybe you'll catch some light.


I agree, bumping in HS means you go suspect....I'm sure nobody is going to abuse that. Roll

its funny watching all the bumpers come out crying that, their tactic is balanced and counterable, but yet whine in the AFK cloaky forum about how scared they are in null sec when someone is afk cloaked, come afk cloaking is just as counterable as bumping.

You're pretty well confused.

It's the same people crying in both threads(most notably Mike Voidstar, who once spent twenty pages of a previous "Waah bumping!" thread crying about it). Not only is bumping fine, but so is afk cloaking.

So you very literally have it backwards.

"Verily, I have often laughed at the weaklings who thought themselves good because they had no claws."

TL;DR of the whole thread.

AG: "this is broken it needs fixing and has no consequences"
most of us: "it's not broken, there are plenty of ways to avoid it or inflict consequences yourself"
AG "I don't want to use those ways because they have consequences"
Apparant newbie/troll alt: "You're all butthurt douchebags and my opinion is the only one that matters"
most of us :"That's nice dear, we'll explain it to you" :pats head:
Apparant newbie/troll alt: " You're all intolerant douchebags, I'm right and you're wrong" :stamps foot and flounces off:

and so it goes on.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
