Rules On Capital Sales In High Sec:

We all remember the Chribba Veldnaught crisis of 2008 and the rules we subsequently set for capitals in high sec.

Rules created after this prohibit the sales of capital ships in high security space.

Many of the capitals currently in high security space have been mistakenly moved there through reimbursement or by the server due to inactivity, and so and there have been cases where the owners have seen this as a golden opportunity to sell their capitals at extremely high prices to players who don‘t necessarily know too much about the rules for capitals in high sec.

Sales of capital ships in high sec are prohibited, be it on the regular market, on the contract system or via auction or sale on the forums.

Here are the updated rules for capital ships in high sec:

  1. Capital ships may under no circumstances be used for aggression.

  2. If at war, or with war declaration pending, you may not take your capital ship out of station.

  3. You may not use your capital ship’s attributes to gain any sort of advantage over other players while in high security space.

  4. You may not sell or put your capital up for sale while in high security space.

  5. Breach any of the above will result in a 14 day game suspension and the relocation of your capital to low security space.

Please be sure to stick to those rules if you have a capital ship in high security space, otherwise it will be moved to lowsec.
