So back in 2008 we had some talk of changing the bounty system. We are all aware that it is broken. Looking at the top bounties in the game reveals that Eve Online Hold Em seems to be the most wanted Corp in Eve. I'm just guessing thats their way of holding collateral for betting. I'm more than certain that these characters with ridiculous bounties will never ever undock again. Its a joke, but not a funny one I'm affraid.
- Why even bother haveing a bounty office button in stations if the bounties are a joke?
- Why have Concord billboards at every High sec gate showing off the top bounties if its a joke?
- Why allow new players to think for a SECOND that by placing a bounty on the guy who just can flipped them or podded them that they will get even an iota of revenge? When infact they are just making their enemy more famous or more rich.

Hunting legitimate criminals and griefers could be one of the most fun features of our little sandbox, hell it could even draw in new players! Why no fix CCP? And if were not getting a fix why not just remove the system?
So come on EVE community lets get this settled like it should have been back in 2008!

*on a related note: why am I fighting with a scroll bar to see what im typing in this forum??? This posting box is horrible!

So, what does this have to do with EVE Technology Lab, "A forum for player created tools and applications, including those based on the EVE API," cause I can't figure it out unless your looking for an api that list top bounties?

Now reading through your post, I see no solutions offered? Do you have no ideas of your own or do you expect ccp to come up with every little thing?

Personally, I think the best thing that could be done to improve bounties is the selling, buying, and trading of kill rights.

The only reason I can think of is getting the blue bars when the topic is moved to get more reads.

My main point with the bounty system is that it gives incentive to collusion. It is easy for characters to jumpclone to a basic body and allow an accomplice to collect. If instead there were some kind of exponential smoothing out the bounties, then the target would instead have a price on their heads over several lifespans.

This curve, if in line with the price of the character's skill points, would make it tougher to have a bounty on your head and profit directly from it.

It would improve one aspect of in-game bounties.
