HI Guys,

i was told that getting people to sing on comms for their ship/pod is breaking something in the EULA. is their a clear answer from CCP on this.



I think the answer to your question is "No."


There is not a clear answer from CCP on this.

There is.
It's allowed.
Even devs did it.

It's not brain surgery.

You're welcome.

Do it then send the recording with the petition. If you get banned we can have a riot \o/
*dusts off pitchfork*

CCP banned Ero and the Bonus Room crowd because they created the practice to push the limits with CCP and went beyond what most people consider 'good fun'. They got their line in the sand, but I don't see why that should affect people who aren't being overtly malicious. Singing in comms for a few minutes isn't really a grey area (depending on the song). Just tell the participant it's meant in fun, don't take it to the extreme, use some common sense.

Although confirmation from a GM would be good, for the record.

Just get proof you actually get a profit out of it.



That aside, what if I don't have mic? Can I write a poem instead?

what do you mean? CCP do not care who is what, you break the rules you get banned or not.

I have never seen a ransom honored in all my years in Eve. In fact, Ive never seen any payment that was not secured honored, except between corp members.

That's sad. Honestly.
I always honoured ransoms.
It's not only a matter of economics, but also of reputation.

People who don't honour ransoms are either clueless idiots ...
... or deliberately don't do it, despite the negative effect.

No need to be snide. There are deaf Eve players, we can tease them without being nasty too.

I would request an incomprehensible stream of consciousness forum post as a ransom. After politely stopping at hull.

when i used to ransom i always honoured it. back then if you didn't honour it no one would ever pay so it became pointless. i have only once paid a ransom myself which was with my alt and she got tackled in an itty 5. i asked in local if he'd take a ransom and he said 20 mill so i sent it assuming he wouldn't honour it but he did and i flew away. usually as a rule i'd rather die but in that case 20 mill was a small price to pay for 4 bill in her cargo

up till about 05-06 it was pretty common for both sides to honour a ransom but it quickly became all about the killmail and making your victim suffer as much as possible so ransoms because kinda pointless

Everyone who did it and found it fun will disagree.

If you think that's bullying you have no clue about bullying.

Next you call it bullying just for killing him.

I'm not the insecure one here.

OP, convo the guy once, ask if he wants to sing for his ship/pod.

Yes --> Do it, have fun, and f*k this game if anybody gives you trouble afterwards

No --> Blap him immediately and move on

Agreed, make the offer, sing, pay or explode. Take your pick. Choose fast or you explode anyway for wasting time.
