So that's what a victory in this game feels like!

As a total carebear who likes mining and making things who, up until last week was about to give up on this game because I felt that I would never be able to get revenge against all those who have wronged me (check my kill board, there is been a few).

I took a good look into this and rubbed my dirty miners hands together.

At last a way I can get my own back.

So today I sold my kill rights, all of them, and a few hours after doing so, a notification popped up saying a kill right had been completed.

I checked the kill boards.

My loss, 50m, their loss, 58m.

Victory.

Shortly after members of the pirate corp, threatened to come and find me and kill me. My simple reply, I have deep pockets, for every kill you make on me: I will add as a bounty on your corp, every kill right: I will sell.

I cant fight you, but others can and you will have to lose 5 x my loss for wronging me.

I swear, I could almost taste the pirate tears... Or is that carebear tears?

Now I understand why all them pirates for all these years complained so loudly as soon as there was any threat to their power. It was now time for them to feel like victims.

I have not once, in all of my game time in eve, felt like I had actually "won". I felt like the beaten up bottom of the pile pesant that gets kicked around all fhe time. I didnt make this kill, but it felt like I did and it felt good.

So much so I sent the people on the kill mail a thankyou email and some extra ISK with encouragement to keep up the good work.

Oh revenge is so sweet.

Thank you CCP for allowing carebears to encourage the pew pew in others.

So has begun the age of the bounty hunters. Legions of professional killers will now roam all corners of the galaxy to complete their contracts, and at the same time, satisfy someone else's thirst for vengeance.

It also completes the CCP motto of this game, every action has a consequence.

Sometimes you are the assassins and sometimes you are the shady business person who hires them.

My first victory was when a Friend was can tipped. I was coming to say hello to her in a 100mn Hurricane when a Tristan was Harassing her. Damn it that's my my job! Guy called me a coward for running off to take off the MWD.

I came back.

Yes it was sweet.

You and I have very different definitions of Victory....
Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Thank you CCP for allowing people with isk to encourage the ~profitable~ ganking of others.

Meh, miners / pirates = cats / dogs.

Can't live together, but in the world of eve still need each other.

Even so, at least I now know, with every gank I suffer, I can still post up them kill rights, and the great circle of eve can continue.

Fantastic new feature.

I'd like to point out to the (3) freighter pilots that I ganked last weekend in high sec that this is an option now available to them, I can be found in the Molden Heath area typically from 06.00 til down time most days. Twisted

See, this is the kind of attitude that we've been trying to encourage all along. Instead of sitting and crying about it fight back, with whatever kind of weapons you can use, and you earn if not respect at least a reputation as a guy not to mess with unless you think you can deal with the consequences.

Stuff like this is what the kill right changes were supposed to encourage and I'm happy it actually seems to be working out as planned.

Totally agree, I'm really happy to see this mechanic now in play, as indi types, we don't have weapons to use as such, but this new system allows us to use other people's weapons.

It gives us some power to cause harm back, it's not the lowsec nerf or highsec buff people have been crying for, it's a system that allows the core game mechanic of Eve the PvP, to expand, it levels the playing field.

It's a really inventive solution and I like it.

You sound very angry, why? I think you can train for pew pew too, like the rest of us.

Keep adding bounties because probably you are making the ganker to feel good. I ganked a miner today, and when i received the Concord mail i felt so happy after reading it.

I'm a new player, and that was my first bounty. It's only 1 million, but it encourages me to keep doing it.
