I quit for more than a year and when I started again I noticed there were several improvements in a gameplay (VNI, blackout, taxes, alpha restrictions + new ships, abyssal space and invasion) and even GUI (Agency is finally looking useable actually + new search GUI).
So if the game isn’t dead yet, why nothing changed regarding to sucide ganks and especially with CONCORD pulling?
It is so stupid mechanic that has no logic and justification, it is basically a legit game mechanic exploit.
With the recent changes to rookie ships (which I very like actually) it is even more painful to do it. And no, just because we are doing it it doesn’t mean we like it (apology if I wrongly assumed I am not the only one who hates it and all the other gankers find this exciting and fun to do).
This mechanic needs to go.
Despawn CONCORD ships after gank just as faction police despawns.
Change the CONCORD reaction to what it is now when CONCORD is already in sector. The need to pre-spawn CONCORD in all sectors I want to raid (because I lack DPS and comrades - but even if you have them it is still better to do it) is something I hate even more than pulling CONCORD.
Yes I realize this is a buff (very minor one as it is simply a ganker’s convenience if he doesn’t abuse these mechanics). Yes I realize it removes the stupid AG tactic of spawning CONCORD where you want to do stuff with throwaway alts. I don’t see a problem there, we need more destruction, CCP said that in their blog and right now hs is super safe especially because just about anyone is now mining in damage control + bulkheads Orcas (it seems ganking is focusing blinged BSs mostly).
If needed to be, add more risks to gankers, maybe remove the mechanics that are abused to looting the victims without any risks?
