Arguably its likely to increase....as pods are more valuable for the kills.

But in likelyhood it wont change one bit....people pod because they can and they will...paying the ransom is pointless anyway.

No guarentees are offered in EVE.

I would actually prefer someone pay me the ransom. However 9 time out of 10, the ransomee is being a complete phucwit, and I have no other recourse, but to remove the phucwit from local.

As for the implants on the pod mails, I think it is a bout time really.

Fitting implants is no different than fitting your ship. Except for the fact that you can't screw that up too bad....

Wait till we see the first few mails before you make that claim. I expect more than a few mismatched implant sets.

I used to have a clever sig but I lost it.

No argument here....as much as I hate Killmails for any number of reasons...I never understood why implants wheren't included on them in the first place concerning the purpose of killmails.

Let the trolling games begin for implant sets/preferences.

This will be interesting to watch the killboards as this will mess with a pilot's ISK efficiency as it will be trickier to maintain a good ISK destroyed vs ISK lost ratio.

Ransom mechanics are fine as they are, like the market they are totally player driven. That includes the scams Big smile

Stupid. Bad idea.

+ side is kompleat destruction of killboards but seriously what do you care what implants i have. That is private information. Why dont you list also what clone i had active at the moment and was i aroused or not.

Pointless info if you ask me. On another had you are just giving alliances more and more ingame mechanich to control their members.

If i want to fly +5s in pvp its my choice. Since they already make you fit your ship the way they want to now they are gona make you implant they way they also want.


This is a horrible idea.

Why dont you just add IP adress of a person whom you shoot to the killmail, alnong with where he lives his computer configuration and amount of chest hair.

My ego is the the size of my carriers jump range.

Why dont you completely over-react and blow this way out of proportion. If your corp alliance gives you any hell about implants theyre **** anyhow

Maybe you should find a corp that lets you play the game the way you enjoy it instead of telling you what to fly?

I blew up your pod and your corpse was floating in space. Determining the implants in your head would be a simple matter of dissection.

(edit: hypothetical. I didn't pod him)

Are you the same guy that wanted to be able to prevent people from knowing the fittings of the ships they destroyed? Same logic applies: given a little time to examine the wreckage, they would know every piece of equipment you had. The killmail is just the report on that examination.

Make corpse implants salvageable, implant remnants for use in production of 'exalted' boosters that have double bonuses and side effects.

Finally, a reason to pod beyond 'lol i pone joo' or intel denial.

How is this different than ransoming a Ship that may or my not have a few hundred mil worth of potential loot?

The pilot will pay as per normal, if not pod and then laugh at the what was lost for a NO!.
