Exactly. As others pointed out, more DPS would have fixed this "problem". HTFU.

Self entitled failure beliving everything is his, fails to plan, and whines about it. News at 11!

Lets see what did I not miss

1. Gay ****** music
2. Oracle having six lows, had exactly 1 mod the DCU. So, where is the damage mods? The pilot of the oracle in the video deserves to be shot for not putting his all into it and flying risk adverse (afraid of losing 5 mill in T2 mods or like 500k in meta 1)
3. Did everyone have their guns over loaded? I saw the Oracle pilot did, but WTF would you group it three times. More time to activate each one instead of just one group and fire - BTW, pre-activate and they fire almost right after lock.
4. Faction ammo? Can't tell, but 15%...******* idiots if you didn't use it and it makes a hell of a difference.
5. Damage implants? Yeah, you don't deserve a damn thing because you assume "Hey, 15 minutes...we got all the time in the ******* world!" and look what happened...just apply maximum damage in the shortest amount of time to burn that ***** into a wreck. You flying without even a 3% laser mod on that oracle...it could of made the difference but if you fly empty because you are risk adverse that is your damn problem it disseappered.
6. Gay ****** music.

Don't ever assume you are entitled because somehow CCP said it was...aggression was forced explicity for Titans since all smaller ships burn because they have thick ass tanks nobody could kill in 15 minutes and if the Titan pilot fired even once...it wasn't going anywhere...everyone else in smaller ships got applied as well. Freighter pilots cannot fire back, so they cannot get mutual fire aggression and that is why you lost assuming you would win. Even I learned that from someone bitching about it like a week after the change.

If only the victim had a even remote chance to see the other side of the gate he wouldn't have to use this game mechanic as it currently functions. Posting in another "The game mechanics always screw me over, change them" thread.

he did he had a scout.

We spent an hour avoiding only to have this Bull crap exploit used.

using the cloak mechanics to log off by DCing yourself before you declock is bull. Its an i win no risk button. It craps in the mouth of eves risk reward system.

All those saying get more DPS are just trolls. He should have been stuck for 15 min end of story. No risk game-play mechanics in low sec. You guys must be joking. This completely runs counter to how this game works on so many levels.

Odds are you all just have freight alts that you do this lame crap with and have sand in the ginas about someone exposing the exploit.


So what is it CCP devs, is this working as intended that you can jump a gate DC before disco and just get away even thought the other parties spent a lot of time and effort to get the kill.

Are you saying your advocate DCing on purpose as a valid game tactic? Or is this just some stuff you will give us more hypocritical baloney.

Is using the log off cloak mechanics on gate an exploit or not. CCP has to answer this.

If you have not registered aggression at the point of logoff, you will disappear as normal. This cannot be extended by post-logoff aggression.

At any rate, this is just an extension of the mechanic by which already logged off players cannot be aggressed by any (to my knowledge) legitimate means. This isn't the same as extending aggression gained while still logged in. Given that allowing logged-off players to gain aggression would lead to some utterly hilarious exploits on it's own, I'm betting CCP will let this particular side-effect slide.

No they need to specifically answer to jumping a gate and logging off while before decloak.

There is a difference between logging off getting dced while in warp while everyone can still see you and abusing a game mechanic in a way it was not intended to be used.

This is what CCP needs to answer.

Is using this mechanic in the way it was used in the video CCP sponsored. Is logging off a to avoid a fight something CCP supports.

Thats what they need to answer.

Logged off players cannot (legitimately) gain aggression under any circumstances. This is working as intended.

No F that. Kill the 1 min despawn. Its 15 min or nothing.

No CCP needs to state if the specific instance on the gate and Logging out before you decloaked is AS INTENDED.

If Yes I unsub my accounts. Cause thats utter crap.

This has been debated for centuries... What do you want ccp to do eh?

The logs won't show anything useful if a player exits game - and if it would, people would just jank out the network cable and d/cin that way.

Get over it and get more firepower instead of whining on the forums you poof

Wow I thought you were kidding at first but your serious?

yank yoru cable to get away. You should die if someone catches you.


I thought eh 15 min thing was how it worked.

I dont care if they make that the way it works fore everything cause that's what i and everyone that was with me thought it worked to begin with. Nothing would change for us.

Only the losers that use such cheap grab ass exploits.

Dont let the door hit you on the behind on the way out. if you have aggression you stay there, if you crash or log with out it your out in 1 min. its not fair on the the people who crash if they crash and loose what every they were flying if they didn't have aggression. Yes I know its not "real world" but you have to remember this is a computer game.

Just my two pence, the mechanic is fine as it is.

now time for the CCP Keynote

What we're actually doing is removing both hisec and PvP from the game entirely. It seems like the fairest way to solve this problem. - CCP Grayscale  - CCP troll BEST troll <3
