Ideas is nice in all but it's time we look at this type of idea harder...
We all like to do duels and tournaments and maybe leagues some day....

So, I ask you look in to adding a tournament duel idea were more then one person can duel, in groups
corps alliances be added in on this type of duel... plus allow change of isk, i bet you 20m we win type style...

league would be nice to add in this type of game as we all love to be on top and maybe be part of hall of fame....

Involving corps and alliances already exists: It's called a WarDec.

Why are we trying to give high-sec more of the "benefits*" of low-sec when there's limited incentive to go there now?

There are methods to deal with this in low-sec and have been for years.

So its simply a buff to life in high-sec.

Good sandpit mmmm? Roll

You say Wardec is limited to kills only and keep track of when you win..... point of a league or tournament is income wining stuff. That's my point plus with a duel I would like to bet few million I could win the fight... maybe a third party could work this out :)


league is men't for very long 3 to 4 months with as many people join as they like, and with a duel idea like this you can save ISK from wardeck.... so any engagement you can just fuel and add it in API form to a board... so hope this clears up your question...

why you call it a DUEL if others can still Interfere ?
Because it's a duel?
There's nothing about duels that makes it impossible for people to interfere — it's just dishonourable to do so. If you choose pistols at dawn, the roving band of bandits that happen to find you, and decide to rob you blind, will not particularly care about the elegance of your second's cravat or the eloquence of the challenge you make to your opponent. They will just want you to hand over the guns, valuables and silk socks.

…and there have been methods to deal with this in highsec for years. This is simply the return of those methods after Crimewatch accidentally removed them. No new or special benefits are being handed out.

Open question for CCP :

Given high-sec protects people then why should you circumvent that?

I'd like more people in PvP but this nonsense isn't the way to do it Straight


then dont accept duel requests . simple . nothing circumvented .

Used to be a time you saw somebody with a bounty you thought ... "Wow he must have pissed somebody off ." now you see somebody with a bounty and you think " yep... they appeared in help channel ."

This is toxic to the learning environment of a rookie.

Do not instill some false sense of honor and 1v1s in new pilots, because you will just receive walls of petitions about "people in lowsec and nullsec not honouring fights".

This is not the mindset you want to attract to EVE, and I am insulted you are taking existing, player-created content (and choices) and turning it into feature garbage.

So many other aspects of EVE require a globally higher priority.

Why do everything have to be turned into games? There is already a Hall of Fame, and you are on it too!

Hm... That certainly is intriguing... It would get more people interested in PvP. Plus, Alliance Tournament teams could use it for practice. Plus, you could have different divisions, like 1v1, 5v5, 10v10, etc.

That all can be done with a little bit of organization. On the test servers.

And now back to the harsh, cruel, pvp-based one-aspect-has-influence-to-the-others sandbox MMO called EvE Online, which is different than WoW etc.

What a perfect opportunity to take advantage of the new bounty system. A hundred mill on each dueler I see should help get the message across.

That's a lot of Amarr dueling frigates to lose, children.

I thought the best way to duel was to get drunk and hang out on the Arzad undock in faction fitted bling. No?

To all the folks posting here and POSes, please stop. This has nothing at all to do with the POS system, until I can challenge another POS to a duel.

The duelling system will allow 1v1 in the short term and hopefully fleet v fleet in the near future. That is as far as CCP should go in the system. If you would like to build a tournament system on top of the duel mechanic, start up a corp, advertise, and get players to join into your system.

If you wait for in game tools to ensure everything is even and fair, you'll be waiting a long time.

All fine for fun, but please, put under game client generic options a checkmark for auto declining all duel requests.
