What if we could hire NPC’s to do structure bashing/helping out with structure bashes for us?
Maybe with the correct standings, we can hire NPC ships with isk to either kill structures/help out with killing structures, or help defend against other NPC bashes.
The cost of the NPC’s will be dependent on sec status, stage of reinforcement and citadel type.
The NPC’s will not have logi, nor can they be repaired and they will continue shooting at the structure until it goes into reinforcement or they all are wiped out. They can only attack other NPC’s or the structure, and cannot shoot players
On the flip side, a defender can hire other NPC’s that shoot NPC attackers for a similar or lower cost.
By hiring NPC’s for isk, it provides a huge possible isk sink as well as a possible solution to citadel spam
Also, against unguarded citadels we won’t have to wait weeks to log on and bash an empty structure, and if the NPC’s damage is set low enough it won’t have much of an impact on large battles for important timers.
Thoughts, insights and trolls all accepted
Edit: This is mainly to provide another isk sink, it’s not another hate thread against citadel timers
