PvP wreck ownership?

#1 - 2016-05-06 01:49:53 UTC
If Player A blows up Player B in a fight, who owns the resulting wreck?

Player A because they "won", did the most damage and got the final blow, or Player B because the wreck used to be their ship & stuff?

white wreck = yours

yellow wreck = theirs but you just smacked them around so imo its yours

taking from yellow wrecks or cans will incur a suspect flag

Asked and answered before.

Player B owns the wreck.

Access rights to loot the wreck are separate from ownership but follow the flags / aggression rules.

So because Player A and Player B just finished shooting each other, the wreck is available to Player A due to the engagement timer. Player A and B can loot; if a third party tried to loot, they'd go suspect.

If Player B is suspect or criminal, anyone can loot the wreck, due to those flags making Player B (and the wreck) free for all.

Note that these flags last for some time after the combat, but do not last forever.

Player B only owns a pod and has a chance to warp it out.

The "owner" of a wreck is the person who the ship belonged to.

Various people have rights to loot it without consequences: Members of the same player corporation, people they are at war with and anyone with a limited engagement timer against the owner.

Blue wrecks are abandoned and can be looted by anyone without consequence.

Yellow wrecks are wrecks that you don't have rights to, and you will gain a 15 minute suspect flag if you take the contents.
