Alright today my small fleet went into a fight with a ship, we killed it, ****d it, well he didn't like it. We say a red target background (pÓrate >-5) so we could shoot him legally in low sec without getting gate guns. No problem there, he was in my overview and everyone's overview so we started to shoot.

I went ape **** when I looked at the killmail. It was an amarr pilot ? wtf. My overview setting is set to that alliance, militia and corp are not visible on my overview. So even if a pilot has more than -5 I CANNOT SEE HIM on my overview so I do not shoot him.

For some reason, if its in another faction warfare militia, I can see him ? Is there anything in the overview settings that I can do to remedy this problem ? I've looked and tested it and I can't see anything that can help me.

For some reason I can't see if pilots are more than -5 in my local chat now. I could before but now I can't...that's without using my personal standings I mean which I know I could use but I wont start doing that...too much people in my address book, its like spam.

Welcome to the "features" that are FW, we accidentally kill -5 Minnies once in a while too. Allied militia does not count as militia, you have to set faction on overview and pay attention.

A kill's a kill. What's the problem?

I forgot to tell about that but I knew that one too. Its a good one but I wish there was a state in the overview settings that would just say faction. simple enough. Looks like I'm stuck with this one here.

thanks

You can set the NPC friendly militia corp to positive standing, or at least you used to b able to somehow (it wasn't straightforward though). It doesn't help you with Player militia corps though, so when you encounter them put them as positive individually.

The overview is a mess that needs constant vigilance to get it to work right. My favorite part is when altering one tab it sometimes alters other tabs randomly. I like that.

Getting the Militia column on your overview is the way I deal with this. You can make it small enough so you only see the first letter (A,C,M,G), so it doesn't make your overview much bigger.


But yeah CCP should sort this out.

If its not a fleet op shoot them. The -10 amar in BR will shoot you more times than not if they can kill you. Treat them with the same respect.


They are neutral to us, not blue.
