you can’t “trade” in space except maybe for ships with hangar bays that wouldnt be dueling. if you’re talking about the alt dropping jetcans its limited to 1 per 3 minutes. i’d personally pop it and take the suspect flag and hopefully the 2v1 in this situation then set both to orange contacts
why ? eve isnt a fair game and you always can du such things. its nothig wrong about looting while you are infight and this is good ! as i remember a duel its a limited engagement like you have in low sec, if you change this mechanic you kill some mechanics in low sec and you wouldnt be able to loot your oponent or any 3rd party in a fight you could easy do that.
next time do the same… there is no such thing like honor in this game which is all about kill ech other ! always remember this !
This would be wrong. There should always be ways that you can give yourself an edge in a fight by compromising your e-bushido.
The original developers of EVE understood that player antagonists create a much more compelling sense of story than NPC antagonists ever could. But you can’t have player antagonists unless you allow players to do things that make other players mad. Like cheating in a duel, for example.
The fact that you are mad at this guy proves that duel mechanics are good game design. It’s your own fault that you are misdirecting your anger at the game design instead of at the dirtbag who killed you.
That’s the whole point - the mechanics are fair, you could have cheated too if you had wanted to, but your e-honour didn’t permit you to. Your adversary had no such reservations. So now you should know you have beef with that person, not with the game design. I think it’s probably coming from cowardice on your part. You are afraid to take up the issue with the guy who screwed you, so you whine about game design instead.
Go forth, my young one, let the hate flow through you. Find this griefer again and challenge them, and this time be ready to do what it takes to win.
