I have a lover, her name is EVE. I see her every night and all she asks in return is that I have a pilot's license.

So let me see if I understand this.

Current mechanics

Pilot A ganks Pilot B. Pilot B ends up in a pod. Pilot A gets concorded, ends up in a pod.

Neutral loot scooping alt for pilot A swoops in and grabs the loot. Loot alt gets flagged as shootable by Pilot B, which is basically a joke since you just put that guy in a pod. So essentially your loot scooping alt is pretty "safe"

With the new mechanic, your neutral loot alt will now be at greater risk of getting "ganked"Shocked

Am I the only one that finds gankers complaining about this hilariously ironic?

Even I can figure half a dozen ways to abuse the new mechanics to grief other players - and no matter how twisty and devious I think I am getting, there are several others out there in New Eden who make me seem as straight as a laser beam.

First they came for the highsec griefer and I said nothing because I was not a highsec griefer....

Other thing to think about is that you won't go GCC by attacking and blowing someone up in Low sec.

you'll get a 'suspect' flag instead. and tbh it probably won't affect any of the pirates/ls pvp'er that I know in any meaningfull way really.

I for one welcome our new frigate overlords.

Player B's wreck drops, now when you loot that wreck you are freely attackable by everyone,


are you really crying because you will now be more vulnerable to other gankers in high sec? grow some balls. if you dont like the idea of someone taking advantage of you in the same way you just took advantage of "player B" then stay docked, or move to null where it is considerably safer.

Yes, it's all about nerfing your precious high-sec griefing, isn't it, OP?

Actually, no. The thing is that these sweeping changes are less about improving safety and more about reducing lag. Before, the server had to handle thousands of calculations about who had aggression or kill rights on who. Now, you gain a flag that simply allows anyone to shoot you, thus cutting down the number of required calculations immensely.

Cutting aggression calculations by eliminating aggression. Brilliant.

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:

Hehe not to mention the lag cutting comment comes from a member of Eve University.

The very same people who sent 4 destroyers, 2 battleships, an interceptor and a Battlecruiser to chase my lone Rifter after I stole from one of their wrecks. Think of what THAT does for lag!

Pretty sure they had hotdroppers and several carrier groups waiting on standby in the nearby low-sec system in case you fled down one of the pipes toward null.

How is more people having aggression toward aggressor "eliminating aggression"?

Are you saying that the person who previously could boldly go and shoot an exhumer will now chicken out because there MIGHT be somebody around who will shoot back at him? Big smile
