A cautionary tale via chat log copy/paste (names removed, spelling improved):
Victim > concord just popped my Gila for nothing i blow up a wreck from our ratting I’m in same corp and fleet and that blasted me
3ICE > Was your Safety not enabled? (green) That normally would have prevented this.
I don’t recommend playing with Partial (yellow) safety and never with it Disabled
Victim > no. that shouldn’t matter anyway we in same fleet it was just as much my wreck to blow up
3ICE > Salvaging others’ wrecks? Yes. But shooting them? No
I mean it really is silly to penalize if the contents have already been taken. You should be allowed to shoot them then
that’s no worse than ninja salvaging it (which is allowed)
But if you actually destroyed someone else’s loot inside the wreck, concord will intervene
Victim > it was our wreck anyway … cost me 400 mill
3ICE > why would someone use weapons fire to blow up a wreck though?
3ICE > fire salvage beam at it instead, get bonus resources
Victim > speeds up mtu when just flying through lvl3s
3ICE > can you explain what that means? I did a whole bunch of Googling but do not understand
Bystander > I’m not sure … i couldn’t find anything either
An hour later inspiration strikes…
3ICE > Omg I just realized
wrecks are difficult to pull, they are heavy
cargo pods are lighter, so:
MTU can tractor beam + loot a tiny Cargo Container much faster than a battleship wreck
This discards salvage but does keep some of the loot intact. Right?
Was I trolled?
