Bumping is harresment when it happens time after time
Yes I know it is a game but I would also like to say to CCP and those players
” Harassment is when someone behaves in a way which offends you or makes you feel distressed or intimidated”
Also some countries have
Harassment as a form of discrimination under the Equality Act.
A quote from CCP
“What is EVE Online?
EVE Online is a community-driven spaceship MMO where players can play for free, choosing their own path from countless options. Experience space exploration, immense PvP and PvE battles, mining, industry and a thriving player economy in an ever-expanding sandbox.”
Well PvE mining is getting to be hard with the same bullies that keep on everyday bumping your mining ship / orca etc in High Sec. Just so you either fight them and get Concorded or stop mining altogether.
The game is for PVP and PVE as per the above quote and if you say anything out loud then these bullies ridicule you saying it is part of the game. Well it time we all stand up to bullies like in schools and the work place.
It does not matter if you go to another moon or system or belt, they find you and start the bumping all over again. If you complain in a support ticket you are told this is part of the game as per quote below,
“it is currently not considered harassment as the opportunity to do so is within game mechanics and doing so is not deemed a violation of the game rules.
I am therefore not able to intervene in this matter in accordance with our policies.”
“Common Misconceptions about Exploits
This passage contains common tactics and other player conduct that is often mistakenly reported as exploits but are in fact not.
Ship Bumping * Ram the ship of another player with your own in order to prevent them from warping."
Well in my opinion if you are not warping then how can they be allowed to bump you and get away with it? They should not be allowed to get away with that or am I wrong?
Also it says to me that bullies you are allowed to bully and harass other players that only do PVE by bumping their mining ships away from the asteroid so they can’t mine even when they are sitting still or in orbit of the roid.
This then makes me think that means CCP up holds the policy to allow harassment and bullying and that they welcome this or am I wrong in that too CCP, please let us know CCP what you say on that matter? As you also state
Thus it is about time that CCP does something about deliberate bumping while mining in high sec to stop this harassment and bullying like other companies are doing and stand up to bullies.
