Exploit: Bumping in order to prevent E-Warp

Bumping a ship in order to get it stuck in emergency warp alignment limbo when its pilot logs in is now considered an exploit.

Ships undergoing emergency warp upon appearing in space have no means to activate modules, cancel warp, or otherwise defend themselves during this period; they cannot be stopped by any warp disruption mechanic. Bumping them during this period renders the ship in question utterly helpless, against the intention of the game mechanics.

Note:
• This does not apply to pilots who get legitimately aggressed under normal game mechanics, preventing their ships from disappearing from space. Use safe logoff whenever possible.
• This specifically applies to those pilots who disappear from space after logoff and appear again upon logging in.

Thank you for your attention.

You just made a ship almost impossible to kill even more harder. Cmn CCP wth are you thinking?

Decisions are what makes EVE a so beautiful game.
You want your caps tanky with slaves, go ahead but they are less agile and slower.
You want your capital ships not probable? Than go with nano, stabilizers and nomad set.

CCP always and i repeat always caters to the big entities.

You are wrong.
We think that this was a bug too. The bad mechanic from ccp.

This is how things have always worked in EVE. Non-game breaking stuff doesn't get fixed/rebalanced in a timely manner just because there are problems or even exploits. They get fixed when the issues finally become too impactful or too public to keep ignoring.

I hope this will make CCP finally fix the whole bumping mechanics.
You shouldn't be able to bump titans with smaller ships, it should just blow up when it hits the titan due to mass difference.

They're supposed to be killed through real fights or engagements anyways.

Who said that, where is that written?
99% of Titan kills is anyway a pilots mistake or an awox.

What Shadow cartel did is much much better than both of those mentioned above.

Given the quality of posts in general it appears to qualify for TEST standards.

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

WEl if you die and loose your ship you did something wrong dident you ?? doesnt matter if its a titan or a frigg.
