Dear CCP & Pilots,
Make the Bounty Hunters great again! The Bounty Hunter class ships.
And the re-newal of the bounty system and its rewards.
the bounty system / motivation to hunt (special also in highsec) gankers, pilots with killrights, suspects, or with a bad / negative security status
is not good, as everybody know. There is all in all almost no fair reward, sometimes small bounties are paid out (if pilots had a bounty) + the loot dropped.
Here is big potencial to create more content - but a problem to handle it technical and avoid bounty farming with Alts
Many pilots do their first pvp experience in highsec, by shooting suspects or gankers. Also much more pilots would
hunt in highsec, if there is a real and fair motivation for doing that. We need a Bounty Hunter Class, as reward to all those
who shoot and kill suspect, criminals, pilots with killrights and / or bounty up on them, but not just for highsec, also for low and null.
I am sure, that CCP made in the past alot thoughts about it, the main problem (what i think) is the nerfing
and collection rewards with alts. So there must be a fair system - also a way to avoid that the “crime pilots” have a
Idea - Details:
Class of hunting targets:
- suicide ganker doing ganks / flashing red
- pilots with killright
- pilots with negative sec. status (free to be killed)
Reward - and system:
by killing one of the pilots above, pilots get a higher standing for a new standing class called
"the Bounty Hunter" standing. For each they kill, the standing grows up slowly
if the standing of the pilots increases after some kills of crime pilots, he will be able to activate and fly
a new class of ships, the Bountyhunter Class. Frigate, Destroyer, Cruiser, Battlecruiser, Battleship. At least
strong as Faction Ships, different Bonus for pvp and hunting activites - but limited just to pilots with the right
standing in Bountyhunter standing, so NOT everybody can use them, just the pilots of justice. This will give
them a real and fair reward and something special.
the standing increases after the numbers of kills in this class, after the destroyed value from ship
and after the damage made. If concord made 80 % damage and pilot 20 %, he get just 20 % standing bonus,
also if there are more than 1 pilots on killmail, its split among the damage.
when standing increase after times, the next class of bountyhunter ships will be free to fly.
possible are also bonus on this ships connected to bounty hunter standings, same system like
enforcer (bonus on repair for example connected to security status).
when those ships are limited to pilots just with the right standing, they will be a real and honest
reward, something very special for all those killing criminals, suspects, killrights, but not just in highsec,
also in low, null and WH and also nerfing with Alts is limited or not very lucrative.
Faithfully yours, Tau
