Ok yes , another one of my not very well thought out ideas , I do think I is useful to throw a stone into the think pond now and again
Ok , so the general idea is a player/corp/alliance can choose to trade embargo player/corp/alliance . This will work similar to the war dec system as a isk sink and to provide a genuine way to hurt other pliots without direct combat. The embargo will cost a certain amount a month the same as a wardec.
When you have been trade embargo is in full affect , you are unable to purchase from the player/corp/alliance in any way , contracts are the same . If a neut purchases and then attempts to trade/contract/sell to the player blacklisted player either both parties will receive a hefty sec status hit and the goods are classed as illegal , meaning high sec police will attack on site if scanned.
Now I understand this will require a lot of work , at the moment I don’t believe there is a way to track who manufactures a item , ( I did post this as a idea at a earlier date) , Also a system which tags who has been blacklisted and who hasn’t is another huge piece of work .
This would allow another form pvp to develop in eve , there can then possible additions to this system , for example trade unions/federations. Collections of people or corps/alliance that all embargo the same people and making logistics a real issue for those who are the target of this economic warfare.
anyways open to discussion to improve the idea or denounce it .
