  • PLEX change : Cancel PLEX orders and reimburse broker fees?! Really? in EVE Gameplay Center

    Zarek Kree wrote:
    Sure...and then there will be those who scream about having their orders summarily changed to a different item against their will.


    While of course you are right (someone will scream about any change whatsoever), I think CCP should favour making people whose complaint makes no sense be the ones who do the screaming.

    Provided the minimum quantity is set to 500, the conversion of an order for PLEX into 500x as many microPLEX makes no actual difference whatsoever, so if someone complains, they're being silly.

    Even the forums have scope for PVP if approached in the right way, but I don't think the killboards collect nosecoffeemails yet.

    What do you think of James's proposal to remove facpo? I'd chase up the link but I imagine you read it some time ago.

  • New minime PLEX discussion. in EVE Gameplay Center

    Bad Bobby wrote:
    PLEX price might dip temporarily, due to the one-time injection of extra PLEX converted from Aurum, but the increased functionality and usability of PLEX will counteract this.


    Presumably the end of destruction-in-transit will lower the price somewhat by increasing the supply... but for all I know only a tiny fraction of PLEX bought are destroyed by the loot fairy.

    Leaving aside the latest round of "make EVE like every other MMO and surely subscriber numbers will rise because reasons", I'd like to know why Hello Kitty Online doesn't actually exist. I'd play it, so based on extensive market research (myself), it would be a roaring success.

  • help! I got scammed 310M isk with courier contract. in EVE Gameplay Center

    Serendipity Lost wrote:
    The bigger issue here is asset safety. Until citadels - asset safety meant NPC station. The new trend of space magic now conserves all citadel assets. So, with a risk averse foot in the door, the next step is a drop box to ensure asset safety for courier items. The next step will be what??? ships engaged in courier contracts (have plastic wrapped item in cargo) are immune to destruction?? This creep to make personal assets out of the reach of other players (through guile or honorable combat) is sucking the heart out of the game.


    What creep? Before citadels, those assets were in NPC stations and were safe. Peculiar as the space magic is, they didn't get any safer with citadels (indeed, they got marginally less safe given the delay and potential recovery charge).

    Before citadels, if the courier could get to the NPC station and dock (and they could use an instadock BM), they were safe. With this proposed change, if they can get to the citadel and do a little dance outside (less safe than an instadock BM), they are safe.

    Nothing here got any safer compared to the pre-citadel situation. Your complaint's a kneejerk without reference to actual gameplay.

    This has always been a good reason... but a poster a few posts up had a good idea. What if citadels had a "delivery box"... essentially a can that was deposit only where deliveries could be dropped off without docking?

    Don't know tbh. Idea has merit why don't you go think it through a little. Flesh it out a little more and put it in the features and ideas section. Who knows we may even see this come to pass if it's not stupidly hard to code for some reason

    I don't think Scialt need bother any more than I did, the reason being, the idea is already well known. I half think I read about it first from a dev. :-)

  • help! I got scammed 310M isk with courier contract. in EVE Gameplay Center

    That said, some way packages can be dropped off at a citadel without docking would be very welcome. I'm sure many of us use couriers to move our stuff around, given the constant supply of people willing to move small packages for peanuts, and it would be nice to be able to get our stuff moved to citadels.

  • Insurance Business: Rough idea - any interest for this? in EVE Gameplay Center

    Toobo wrote:
    8. The main principle is that an early loss of the insured asset will not be a good option for the client, as the asset will not be fully covered until the client has paid X value of the insurance fee. This shall act as a basic means to prevent insurance fraud and also to ensure that the insurance corp can maintain good reserve fund that can be put into work to keep the capital growing


    What sort of proportion of the value of the item are we talking about here? I ask because if it's too high, there's no point - the client might as well keep their money and self-insure. But if it's too low, you'll find it hard to turn a profit, when unlike a real insurance company you're paying back the premiums at the end of the term anyway, and only taking the money you make by having the use of that capital during the term.

  • 119.1 - Issues Thread (PC) in EVE Information Center

    I just went out to do a bit of scanning. With Structures filtered out in the probe scanner, an enormous quantity of the results are still structures. (If I remove the filtering of structures, some more appear). This is a new behaviour.

    I've sent a bug report but it seemed worth mentioning it here. Irritatingly, I can't get anyone else in English Help to try it, so I dunno if it's affecting everyone or just me).

    If you have difficulties submitting bug reports in-game, you can do so on the web here. If you are running LogLite, or if you can reproduce the bug, I would recommend attaching client logs as described here if you are using the web-based tool. (The in-game tool will take care of this automatically.)


    Thanks for your reply, which I'm afraid I didn't see until reporting a bug today reminded me of it. I should have mentioned at the time that another user in English Help was affected, so it wasn't "just me". Sorry about that. It seems to be fine now, FWIW.

    To be fair, from a quick look at zkillboard, the Kusions seem to have missed their target at the corresponding time.

    Well then, that would be what you'd post as proof, but yet again, AG proves themselves incompetent at the most basic things.

    What, I'm in AG now? I thought they kicked me out of the channel after they noticed I had New Order shares. But since you ask, https://zkillboard.com/system/30001389/ doesn't seem to show the Kusions nailing anything around 04:24 on the 7th February. What more proof do you need?

    Minittor wrote:
    I don't mine or gank them, so I have no dog it this fight. However, it seems to me that a measured response could be to re-balance the defensive capability of mining ships. Allow miners to fly ships that up the cost for suicide ganking to a significant ratio of the cost of the mining ship. This would mean mining capability is sacrificed of course.


    By a happy coincidence this has already been done in the form of the Procurer and Skiff.

    You pay sales tax but not broker fees. You do pay broker fees if a non-instant duration is selected even if your order is fulfilled instantly, a rather tedious piece of UI screw.

    You cannot prevent this by word, deed, creed, allegiance, ISK/hour, territory conquered, DDOS, TiDi, Russians, WiS, monocle, or any in game mechanic.

    Other than D-scan and watching Local (part of Code compliance, most of which is good advice whether you like them or not.)
