I’m new. Only been playing for about a month now and I’ve noticed something I don’t like at all. Here’s the problem… I’m ratting in low sec, heavily engaged with a pirate battleship in my destroyer. it’s a long battle, but I win. My cap is depleted, my shields and armor are gone. I only have a few tics life of hull… but I won. Then just as I catch my breath a blip appears on my overview… targeting warnings … I’m trying to run… too late. I’m dead.
Then comes the “gf” in the chat window… really? GF for who? I beat the battleship but then I get ganked by a random pvp’er. I really don’t blame the other player, he didn’t know what I was doing. He just saw me on the local chat… dscanned me… then came in shooting. How was he to know that I was nearly dead?
It seems to me that this is a very common situation, one that the game developers are well aware of and choose to have this way. I don’t like it and I think it’s unfair. Might I suggest that there should be some way to read what dscan targets are up to… at least at that point … the ganker could choose to be a jerk… instead of just being one innocently.
