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 having a bounty office button in stations if the bounties are all for EOH chars or ppl who want fame?
- Why have Concord billboards at every High sec gate showing off the top bounties if the system is broken?
- 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? Currently this bounty system is being exploited by EOH. And I personally would like to see them come up with another method of holding deposits rather than co-opt the bounty system for their needs.

So come on EVE community lets get this settled like it should have been back in 2008!

I will not offer solutions as I have seen dozens on these forums. To reiterate them all would be pointless.
I would however like to see a complete list of bounties available to ALL pilots, NOT just the top 50 as this creates a populartiy game.

We know, the bounty system has been a joke since it's inception, the lack of a working bounty system is a glaring hole in empire PvP, dozens of suggestions have been made to CCP. They're not interested.

It was never a profession so how can it be ignored? Very Happy

Eve is filled with utterly useless legacy stuff from way back and it has taken monstrous campaigns to make CCP dedicate people to fixing things much smaller than that so good luck, you'll need it.
