Confirming that I have received the 5B ISK bounty. The killer/s need to contact me with the FULL API Key in order to claim the ISK. The ISK will be paid to the final blow pilot, or his/her corporation if that is the pilot's request.



These rules will kill the interest for most corporations/alliances.

The ISK should be paid to a CEO of the corporation/alliance that did the work, so that they can determine what happens to the isk, given the fact that this is a group venture.

As it stands now, a lucky vulture, or some 2 day old member might get the entire reward for the work of many, and you'll have to politely ask him to "donate" it to the gang/corp etc and hope he does.

Granted, in my own corp/alliance this would prove no problem, but how many others can say the same?

(yes I know chribba didn't determine who gets the payment, but he is the one listing them and thus easiest to quote).

Given EST's capital strenght I somehow don't see anyone trying to kill one of their motherships (and having much hope of succeeding) with less than 10 capitals, and probably quite a few more, with a nice support gang.

Given this, a final blow bounty just doesn't seem quite sensible ugh

I thought about that quite a bit. Handing it to a corp CEO could **** off an alliance. Handing it to an alliance might not make sense if only one corp was involved. Handing it to either leaves out pitchfork toting mobs who just happen to catch him in a system and come running as the word spreads that he's tackled.

At the end of the day, it's all about the fun anyway. A little luck, randomness, and chance doesn't hurt. The killers will just have to sort it out themselves if and when the time comes.

I like that part of it actually, let's be honest, a Titan kill is a Titan kill, anyone who could pull it off would be happy to do so regardless of reward, the fact that the shooters go into a lottery where the pilot with the final blow gets 10b is good fun.

Most of the bigger fleets from the alliances the reward would get swallowed up in the name of costs anyway and none of the pilots would get any real reward, as is the norm.

Not that I care, nowadays a large gang for me is 5 of us, if I saw either the Nyx or the Lev I'd be doing nothing but warping TFO. YARRRR!!

Hand it to the CEO of the corporation most involved in the kill.

Unless you're a rubbish alliance, you wont argue about things like this.

I think it goes all different kind of ways tbh, what if a smaller roaming gang encounters and manage to take it down? The small gang don't get anything as the ISK is given away to their CEO without him/her even knowing about it? (of course this event is most likely not going to happen).

But of course I'd say that if the CEO/gang talks before and then going for a joint kill the "final blow" pilot should be able to simply say hand it over to the corp instead. Even worse if it's a huge fleet battle involving many corps/alliances, who should then get the ISK?

I think that was the reason the final blow was stated, because determing who gets it isn't easy, and with the final blow it becomes a bit of a lottery - and if then the corp/alliance in question has decided in advance where the ISK should go then it shouldn't matter who gets final.

But but I'm only going by the set guideline, if there's a better one that gets adapted by OP I'll follow that instead.

Why offer 10bil when you can offer 20bil? Go on, it'll be fun.

Is that your price?

At the end of the day, it's going to be someone he trusts that gives him up, or sets him up, most likely. Cool thing is that as time goes by, he's got to wonder who that's going to be.

You gotta love this game.

Feel free to give me the money anyway, or I can just blow up your freighter next time myself so I can get a share of this bounty Wink

I salute your display of loyalty. Hopefully that means whomever comes for him will have to go through you first.

You do realize that Rawthorm is probably the most experienced mothership pilot in the game, right?

Killing him would be such an achievement that 5b is neither here nor there to be honest Smile.

I understand the OP liking the element of randomness of presenting the bounty to the final blow, and tbh your iskies your call.

But maybe if you are looking for suggestions you could have the isk divided up as per damage amounts on the km i.e 5% of the damage nets you 5% of the bounty?

btw this view represents my own fascination of how this thread developes and in no way represents any interest on behalf of my corp.

Would work except that EST has always had a policy in which you have to already know one of us in real life to sponsor your entry into the corporation. Razz
This is why back in eve's golden age we were such an effective corp at small scale warfare. You know everyone in corp had your back. Wink
