Hi,

Why is it when you travel through high security systems and see around 7 concord police flying around and 4 or 5 guritas flying around neither doing anything to the other.. Yet the guritas must have a low security rating considering the number of PC's they attack.

Regardless of that, why is it when the guritas open fire on me, concard do not help?? If this was a pc opening fire on me, even a pc who stood less of a chance of killing me than the pirates do, concord would waste them.

Are the gurritas blackmailing concord or something?

I think he's highlighting the odd RP twist to the situation.

it's more than an "RP twist" to the situation, it's damned stupid. You can get locked up by the pirates, shot to hell by the pirates, try to fight back against the pirates.. and they watch.

But if ONE CUBIC CENTIMETER of the Concord ship or guns gets brushed by the blast radius of a missile or rocket, they will suddenly be all over you like white on rice. They will help the pirates DESTROY you utterly, then go back to hanging out with their Gurista buds, doin' Tequila shots, I guess.....

It's just farking ridiculous.

DOWN WITH CONCORD.

That's because interrupting the cops their Happy Donut Hour is a really big no-no... ;S

The simple reason is the complete lack of any resemblance of artificial intelligence i.e. poor programming. Sad but true

I think Concord has certain funding agreements with the larger npc pirate corps. Neither side can afford an all out war, so Concord looks the other way occasionally (err.. ok all the time). They could care less about us lowly small corps or loners.

I role play that the NPC pirates have some how payed off Concord cops. But since the PC pirates (or the law abiding Eve players) don't know who to pay off we get blasted to Eve Hell if we even look at the cops funny.

Works for me till CCP fixes it.
