Surely if it's not allowed you shouldn't be able to do it through game mechanics. Anyway, my only advice is have an alt with fraps running for an awesome lag-free movie. Very Happy

I would recommend asking the GMs if this is ok, I know they dont like it if you make a habit out of this.


It's a game mechanic, I can't find the dev quote that says suicide ganking is allowable, but I not only support the action, I emplore it!

The last time this happened, GM's allowed it to go on three four days, untill it became apperant, no player, or groups of players would get off their arse to stop it. So they requested him to leave empire space for a bit.


OP Good idea, but been there done that, real old news type of thing.

7 days...and I still cant find a reason to resubscribe.

hey hey

Smartbombing Jita 4-4 would indeed be fun and is totally withing game mechanics. . its not however quite ebil enough. If your intention is to show CCP that suicide ganking is indeed something that should be addressed then may i sugest something altogether more ebil.

go to your local amarian n00b system where their capsuleers emerge from. Camp the station and open local. Anyone under a day old who undocks gets wtfBBQ'ed for ****s and giggles as a warm welcome to EVE. If you get smakked at just quote :

It's a game mechanic, but it's the equivalent of spawn camping a FPS and generally when the spawn camp kiddies take over, it's time to find a new game.

I suppose we are lucky that we never have to set foot in Jita, but maybe CCP need to move the noobs somewhere a bit safer.

So, insta popping Pods (with my Thrasher) in the mission hubs is also not allowed?

Why are market scams allowed then?

Erm to the people saying bomb 4-4, I have a question :

is it still possible?

Around 2 years ago it may have been, but didn't they nerf bombs within 5kms of a station / gate?

Actually, I think that this is not allowable...or is it can baiting that's not allowed more specifically?

Either way that's stupid, suicide killing a frieghter for the loot is an intelligent non-griefing method of pvp gameplay that has a purpose and goal (collecting loot, making isk). Trying to make a statement against this method of game play by smartbombing noobs in a beginer's station is not even relevant since the noobs don't have loot.

If someone wants to ruin their sec status for months by smartbombing jita, the potential of unearthing an ungodly amount of loot makes this a reasonable, if un-wise, thing to do.
