Currently, the game doesn’t seem to offer enough incentive for destruction- and you can see this in terms of corporations/players building up large stockpiles of wealth, ships, and other items. In fact, one of the only visible (objective/numeric) “scores” that the game gives us is our net worth- which generally goes down whenever we engage in PvP.
My suggestion is: Have the game start including stats (think monthly leaderboard) for players/corporations. Show things like number of kills, value destroyed, # of unique toons, etc… Im not suggesting monetary rewards- just a number. Some people like wealth, and won’t care about this- but some people like fame/recognition- and this would provide incentive to those types of players. I know zkill already reports some of this- but I’m suggesting having this leaderboard in game.
I realize some people may try to farm this by killing their alts- but by making this “non-monetary”, many of those “farmers” would find it pointless to blow up their own stuff.
