Hi all,

I fell victim to an old issue last night and wondered about a fair solution... basically I had a canister with some items in it which I was going to get a ship to collect from as the current ship didn't have enough room in the hold, when along comes another player... They created a jet can and preceded to move my items from my canister to theirs. Before I could set my guns and drones on them they warped clear... after chasing them for a while and having no luck in catching them... they warped whenever I got near... I eventually went back to their can and found my items still there... unfortunately I couldn't take back my stuff as that would have marked me as a thief with their corporation. Now maybe I'm missing something... and I probably am... but it really doesn't seem fair that I can't take back from the their can what was my property to being with without being marked as an aggressor.

Could I suggest that an enhancement to the game system is made to make it possible to reclaim your property if the thief has popped it into a jet can so they can pick it up later?

Anyhow thank you for your time :)

Cheers,
Farlax

Please correct to enhancement before your post is burned to a crisp. Smile

I fear that there is not a easy solution. That change hase been asked for years, but it is difficult to implement, as every items would need a past owners history, going at least some hour back.

The positive aspect is that the flag last only 15 minutes.
So your best bet, if it happens again, after chasing away the thief is to return with a warp stabbed ship, grab your items, and dock fast.

The WCS in the event of a cloaked enemy (just yesterday there was a guy baiting new players in a starting system offering some gear and then ambushing them in a cloaked ship).

"Enchantment" should be "Enhancement" is what I think he was referring too. But don't worry, we're pretty forgiving around here =)

Thank you. Fixed my typo, sorry about that.

To Orion : Thank you for your support. I won't be on until later in the week. Once I am I should be able to mail you the players name in game.

Cheers,
Farlax

If this happened within the lst few minutes I strongly advise you to go an get your items

its only a 15 minute aggression and after that it means nothing

who cares if you would be marked for 15 minutes? they were your items.

Orion. If you need any help give us a shout ingame, Eve's harsh enough to learn without this kind of killmail collection.

Are we reading the same forums here? Shocked

Yeah, can flippers are lame, especially newbie system can flippers. On the other hand, macro miner can flipping is a wholesome form of family entertainment and should be part of any nutritious eve diet.

Edit to add: Aaargh, borderline necro is borderline.
