I’m certain haulers and Orca pilots will love this idea.
Everyone knows that gankers look for Orcas and Haulers on gates to bump. Doesn’t matter if the pilot in question is AFK and on auto-pilot.
Based on the Expert System of purchasing a skill set for a ship for a limited time, this idea would fit into the same category.
You would purchase the Insta Warp System for a number of jumps 10 jumps, $1.99, 20 jumps $3.99, or 30 hours at $7.99.
When purchased and activated on any ship, the Insta Warp System would Insta Jump the ship 250 km in the direction of travel that the ship is facing when it de-cloaks after coming through a gate.
A player can also use the IWS while traveling at or below 100 m/s.
Basically the player is paying for the gate to send it 250km in the direction it is facing after declining, much like the Mobil Warp Depot does.
A cool down timer of :30 seconds would then follow. If the ship is being bumped, which ever direction the ship was facing when bumped and the IWS is activated is the location the ship would IWS in.
Scrambling the target would nullify the IWS system though.
Using the IWS would also guarantee that when your ship came through a gate that it would be in a random location around the gate at between 20 to 25 km from the gate.
However, you could not use the IWS in a system where you were -1.00 to the faction in that system.
The player would deternine when to use the IWS by clicking the IWS Token that is in their Plex Vault.
This idea would add value to CCP in keeping players around where the money invested by the player for the IWS would go towards server upgrades, pay raises devs, to continuing having Eve Fests at the old locations and new locations as well.
So much winz for all of New Eden and so much tearz much tearz for, ah…just so much tearz for the ganker bearz.
When profit is introduced into the game where the developers win, who would want to look the other way at fake stats of ganking ships?
Looking at the monthly profit pie, yes I do see IWS Warp Welling has brought in much more revenue and retained more rookie players who would opt in to purchase the Gold Expert Pack, 7 days of Covetor Mining Barge Skills + 15 IWS Warping Welling Tokens for $12.99 compared to the player quitting because they had to pay $20.00 in Plex to replace several of their barges. Not to mention the IWS Warp Welling Tokens can be purchased by an Alpha.
Money talks CODE. Bullsquid Gank in Catalysts.
Sorry Aux, Subs and Capitola, the IWS does not work for your ships. IWS range is also reduced the deeper you travel into lower sec status systems.
So much winz.
