Dear CCP , CSM and Coplayers,

When a player do missions in empire space there is a explicit warning when enemies in the misions use warp scramblers from a agent before accepting the mission. I trusted in this warning until today when there was no warning, nevertheless there was actually a frigate scrambling me. I was not ready to handle the situation and lost my ship. Please fix this either adding warning messages to all missions with npcs armed with warp scramblers or a general warning under Help->Missions ingame that you can meet enemies with warp scramblers. As the situation is now new players like me trust in the warning and then have to write a petition reimbursement when there is no warning and you get warpscrambled.Rolling Eyes

Great idea.

Also add a warning that nasty ships may shoot at you, CCP.

I considered it quite rude and unfriendly to us new players.

This may be an interesting read for you.

In missions, if any NPC is warp scrambling, it's almost always a frigate. There's only one case I can think of where a mission cruiser warp scrambles, and that mission has a total of six ships to fight. So, I generally eliminate the frigates first, and then deal with everything else. I haven't lost a missionrunning ship to NPCs, yet.

That said, I don't see the harm in this, so, supported.

You having to buy a new ship incentivizes the whole economy and your personal interest < health of the economy, so no.

when ever I am being warp scrambled or webbed there is a little icon on the overview beside the ship doing it. Just pop those ships first and you are free to warp out.

I reported it in a bugreport and it was classified as bug by BugHuntersTeam. Its only logical if you first get warnings in missions about scramblers, trust in them and then suddenly without warning before accepting the mssion there is sctually a ship with warp scrambler.

Your comment would be great, had it been sarcastic. So, I'm confused as to why you support this proposal. Shocked

I actually will support this. It seems silly at first glance, because EVE is supposed to be a harsh world. But missions pay so little that if you lose your mission ship very often, you end up losing more than you're making, thus rendering your time spent missioning effectively wasted.

Obviously you should need to spend time planning your fit, but players should not be required to go outside EVE (like for instance) just to make ends meet when missioning. A good agent should be able to tell their employees a little about what they're up against, especially if they're expected to face something requiring a hundred million isk ship and are only going to be paid 5 million for it.

Solution to this problem: get in a corp that can teach you the proper eve mechanics. Pve or pvp corp, doesn't matter cause they will teach you how to play correctly.

In your case, its a code 18. the problem is at 18inch of the monitor lol
