Notice how you ignored the fact that I said "jump" not warp? I see ragecaging as an exploit because the warp disruption bubble overlaps into the shields, thus nullifying the point of having a shield. Why don't we just allow people to be locked & shot at inside the pos. It'd just clear this whole issue up. Thanks CCP for being once again for being absolutely worthless...


You're so right. While we're at it, bubbles shouldn't stop supercaps from jumping at all, because they're supposed to be immune to ewar. Worthless, I'm telling you....

So, whatcha got stuck? Nyx, by the sound of you... you look like a lemming fotm kinda guy.

Obviously not bannable, obviously should not be bannable. I'm baffled that anyone would even ask this.


It depends on the situation. 500 would be banable if you read the TOS at all.


Dropping 500 isn't what this is about, if you read the OP at all.


Dropping more than 25 bubbles in any location is bannable. I've already been banned for that. I drop 35 Large T2 bubbles On a gate. :P

The OP was a mere question; Can you do it or will you get banned? It's an exploit from whatever way you look at it. No it shouldn't be bannable, but then again, shouldn't it? Or should CCP just fix it to where the bubbles to effect ships on the inside of the "forcefield". so basically, you log out, and log back in, your f*cked.


Just so everyone knows: (This is from personal experience.) If you log out in a POS force field that has been bubbled, your ship sits there for about a minute, then disappears. When you log in you appear at a e-warp point 1000000 km off, like any other e-warp point, then warp back to the POS through the bubbles, to a point close to where you were when you logged.

If you cannot defend your POS from those who would attack and bubble it, maybe you do not deserve it.

nothing wrong with a r8pe cage
as someone pointed out as long as its there to do its job and not there to lag out the server.

a pos is a large thing to cover, it will take multiple bubbles to lock it down.
and theres not a damn thing wrong with that.

you are still safe in your safe spot, you just can't go anywhere, and that's functioning as intended, its called a blockade.

ride it out, hire mercs, move out, use alts.
you have lots of options

There is no limit on the number of bubbles you can deploy on a gate.

You will NOT get banned and the bubbles will NOT be removed.

If you doubt this then I suggest you go to V-IH6B. When I went in there I found over 100 bubbles anchored on the gate. That was confirmed as perfectly acceptable by a senior GM because it had a "tactical reason".

If its acceptable to massively bubble up a gate to rat in the system then its acceptable to bubble up anything else you can think of.

The tl;dr is that if you are anchoring bubbles there is no limit because you can always come up with a "tactical reason" for doing it.

Spamming objects in space (bubbles, cans, shuttles...) for the purpose of causing lag is bannable. Launching anything for an actual tactical purpose is not. Cans launched to decloak incoming targets or bubbles launched to create a 100k x 100k x 100k unwarpable field around a gate or in a POS are okay.

The current game mechanics allow the effects of a warp bubble to work through POS forcefields. This is unlike ECM bursts some time ago, which have been confirmed as a bug, were petitionable, and were later fixed.

This again... so, half a year ago it was the NC. Three months ago it was the DRF. Now it's the Goons, but they are surely invincible, this time, trust me!

I've been in 0.0 for just a year, but I have learned that nobody, no matter how big or powerful, is invincible. In fact, the biggest blocks fall apart fastest.

I know what RageCaging is, and from what I've heard from several people, it's much like Smart Bombing Jita undock, or popping out thousands of jetcans.


The question I have is; Is this a bannable offense? POS Shields inhibit/are to protect you, but if you can't jump out of a "Safe Spot" then whats the point of having POS shields if you can just anchor a bubble and keep people from jumping?


I'm also going to mention the incident with IT Alliance & their enemies when they were ragecaged. The GM's popped their bubbles.

So, I'd like to know CCP & Players. Is this a bannable offense and if it isn't, should it be?


The only thing not allowed would be pointing/immobilizing somebody for hours without killing them because this would stop people from playing the game.

I can assure you that we will kill any Elite PvP Supercap Pilot that logs in in order to allow him to continue playing this bad spaceship game however he wants.

Dude I'd like to see YOU sit in a system 23.5/7 camping some blobs in an obscure part of space just to catch supercarriers that won't log on anyway because they know they are being ****caged. These brave men and perhaps even women are defending their space from a foreign invasion using a pretty cool tactic. Are you jealous of their superior skills?

Hmm...

I remember back when TEST were taking 6VDT with Goons + co, we had a longer than usual DT so i told everyone to go to a new thread i created on CAOD and post there in protest to the longer DT.

about 5 minutes later the thread disappeared off the face of the planet, 13 posts short of the magical 1000 mark Laughing

And then we all get back on to find 4/5ths of the bubbles deactivated Evil or Very MadEvil or Very MadEvil or Very Mad

Why wouldnt that be allowed? That person can simply SD his ship/pod and get out.

To answer the question yet again; "There is some ceiling as to how many bubbles you can legitimately put down without knowingly lagging the server, which is a violation of the TOS. CCP has not publicly published this number."



Again, you are answering a question that wasn't ****ing asked. At no point in the OP did they ask how many bubbles is okay. They asked if the tactic of trapping someone with warp bubbles is okay. These are two completely separate issues, and the question you keep answering is, again, only tangentially related. There was no issue of quantity, there was no question of induction of unplayable conditions.

However, in no circumstances is the mere act of simply trapping someone an offense. You may, in the process, break some other rule, but that wasn't what was asked.

Here is the meat of their question, for you, a third time:

The answer to this question is an unqualified, "No". Preventing someone from warping out of their POS is not an offense of any kind.


Thats fine that you believe that in your head, but the fact is that you can be banned/punished for putting up too many bubbles, it has happened to people in the thread who have stated it directly.

Also, the short answer to the question is just plain "yes".

I actually want you to say it is not once again because it has already been established by a third party that it is.

AFAIK, there is no rule against deploying bubbles around a POS. There ARE, however, rules against deploying so many cargocontainers, bubbles, etc such that it causes lag.



Actually GMs aren't allowed to touch bubbles anymore, I've attempted to petition DRF dead systems with HUNDREDS of bubbles anchored on them. The senior GMs even said nope.


Yea, Ive had similar experiences. The GM's told me "Its how they play the game"

The unsubtlely veiled opinion posted in the OP would have carried a little more weight if it wasn't so obviously an alt of a member in one of the affected alliances, who no doubt have employed, and will again employ, these ****cage tactics.

Just because we don't know whose alt you are doesn't mean you're not a hypocrite.

Here's a fabulous idea, give titans their AOE Doomsday back. It'll be a counter towards blobs. Granted they'd need to put coded features in to keep a single titan from annihilating 20 battleships with a single DD.
