Not surprisingly this hasn't been thought through, but since I couldn't find a previous discussion on it thought I'd ask.
What if instead of a player who steals loot for example only being aggression flagged to the victims Corp they were aggression flagged to the Faction?
So for example steal from a Galente player in Gallente space and you are flashy to any Galente player throuh the timer?
Sure, I get it that the cops don't realy care/can't chase after every thief, but why would they go out of their way to stop someone doing it themselves (OK, actually I see a flaw in the thinking there but lets push on).
[Edit: The thought I had while typing it was that police don't generally like citizens chasing other citizens (even criminals) with guns. But in a world like this where the police sit by and watch citizens wage war on each other and even duel, they seem 'less than concerned' about it]
Perhaps even only be aggression flagged to a particular standing or higher of that faction, or perhaps only if a particular high standing player is stolen from?
Kinda neighborhood watch - but wit guns
