Cool, just make sure no killmails are generated from these games.

EDIT: Obviously butt hurt reply from pilot living in a POS. Just flagging the kills as play fight would suffice.

The most of us seem to agree that high sec is working as intended and that null is some how broken. So we get dueling and no new poses?

Looks interesting! Can you disable keyboard input on the window? If I'm yammering away in chat while I'm undocking from Jita with a boat full of goods, I would be quite upset to accidently start a duel.

Alternatively, allow users to block duel outright, or have a 1 minute timer where users can cancel the duel before it starts, or put it in a duel menu or something.

Please have some precautions.

Keep up the good work!

  1. Find noob target in weak ship
  2. Issue challenge
  3. Find more noob targets and repeat while waiting
  4. ...
  5. If lucky, gank target with an overpowered ship
  6. Profit

I personally prefer the current dueling mechanics; lowsec sun and blob... no offence I'm sure this'll be useful to some people, but do you not think this is a bit too close to WoW dueling outside of stormwind with the cool kids (this may have changed since last I played WoW... years ago). Please don't rename Jita to Stormwind!

If i'm typing a chat-line and this pops up (focused) ... or i was just clicking 'refresh' on my remote industry job (which happens to be located on the same x,y coordinates as the accept button)? Will it honor my 'green' safity status asking me to confirm to this dialog i might have clicked?

How many developer hours were spent on this?

How many developer hours do you think it would take to fix just the most egregious elements of POS management (such as adding manageable access lists to a SMA)?

Do you see the problem, here?

It might come as a giant surprise to you, but when people see Eve marketing (trailers, etc) they don't then start playing the game to have childish slap-fights in a market hub. The sooner you get on with creating a game which meets player expectations at the door, the better off you'll be.

For those people complaining about this happening 'instead of POS rework'

You do know about multiple streams of work, right? And how this is really just restoring an option that crimewatch 2.0 took away?

Woo! CSM XI!

Yeah, because you couldn't 1v1 with the current mechanics.

I have a suggestion, Honourable duel tags on killmails... Thus a killmail that resulted from your duel is different, potentially a tab/list of killmails from these duels that others can look at if you set it to public. - remote repping ships could be visable on these, so you can see if someone often gets help from a friend...

This, So much this.

Just excluding them from killmails is obviously a bid idea, but a tag is pretty interesting...

No, the option was never taken away. About the only thing you can't do is have your 1v1 on Jita undock or a busy highsec gate. If you do it at a safe spot you're pretty much guaranteed to have no interference since nobody's going to bother combat scanning.
