I have been running a private player run bounty service for 9 years give or take between a select group of corps. Unfortunately for the last couple of years we’ve seen more and more of our hunter contacts leave the game and go on to other things, so much so that we’ve had to start making our new bounties open to the public. We’ve yet to see anybody make a claim against these bounties.
We’re looking to rebuild our network of active hunters who are looking to hunt down and claim bounties. Currently we just want to see these bounties claimed and start seeing some turnover on the public end of things. (We do hold other bounties but as part of the agreement to go public these bounties which were placed before we did so remain restricted to our private network. If you’re looking to place a bounty please see the link below for our terms and fees).
Current valid bounties and rules for claiming can be found here: [Service]The Shadow Network
We have have also set up a mailing list where bounty changes will be posted and a public channel (which we will not be monitoring) for bounty hunters to socialise, share intel and band together. Please bear in mind that this is a completely open channel so we accept no responsibility for any spies in there or losses you sustain by using the channel and we probably won’t be placing bounties in this channel and we will never post bounties through anybody outside of the corp so please treat any such claims as a scam. We’re currently in discussion with our current private network members to grant access to those bounties to any hunters who prove valuable in fulfilling public bounties.
To encourage business we are currently offering to pay out an additional 5% on the first few claims made against our current bounties if the claimant posts verification they received their bounty. If you qualify for this additional payment you will be informed once your bounty claim has been processed.
Whilst our bounties have payout thresholds these are set by the person who places the bounty and the thresholds we recommend (2x / 50%) are much better than the inbuilt bounty system (20%).
So if you’re a bounty hunter check out our bounties (and the claim terms) and join our public mailing list to stay up to date on our latest bounties. If you have any questions please feel free to mail me in game, you may of course ask them here but I check the forums less than my eve mail. If you have any suggestions for expanding our services we would be interested in hearing them.
