ASSET SAFETY POST

Please read fully before responding :smiley:

Some people like asset safety
Some people don’t

REASONS WHY PEOPLE LIKE ASSET SAFETY: If they take a long break from the game, they can get their stuff back if their stuff was located in a destroyed structure.

REASON WHY PEOPLE DON’T LIKE ASSET SAFETY: It’s no longer ‘fun’ destroying structures, with the potential of a nice payout in the structure wreck (or jetted cargo cans), from peoples assets.

AN IDEA:

  1. Whilst corp/alliance IS NOT at war, asset safety can be used as it currently is.
  2. If corp/alliance IS at war: +10% asset safety costs. Assets CAN still be moved manually of course.
  3. If structure is on Structure reinforcement – Cannot use asset safety. Assets CAN still be moved manually of course.
  4. CCP implements a new ‘asset safety button’ for ALL assets in each player owned structure. So if you plan on leaving for a while, you can press this button and asset safety everything, in every structure, with a single click, for the +20% of normal asset safety costs. (can only be used once per 3 months)

This allows people who are not at war, and cannot access a structure, ability to asset safety like CURRENT mechanics dictate. Furthermore, if corp/alliance is at war, the +10% cost increase for asset safety may deter some people to manually move things, potentially leading to content for attackers and/or third parties if in NS or LS. If structure is reinforced on structure (shield and armor is dead), asset safety is NO LONGER POSSIBLE, making it profitable for attackers to gain potential nice drops, but of course to keep it fair for defenders, the defenders can still remove assets manually, with the risk of being camped… etc (leading to content).
‘ASSET SAFETY ALL’ button is +20% of current costs for asset safety initiation to deter people from using it. Also it can only be used once every 3 months. It allows all assets inside player structures to immediately enter asset safety. Can be used if all your structures are being attacked and you wanna save your ■■■■, or if you’re just going on holiday for a while and want to protect your crap. You’ll need to pay extra for the service, or else manually remove everything yourself (Y) (potentially leading to content)

Thoughts?
