After reading a lot of posts regarding salvage "theft" I decided I wanted in on the action, so following our Ninja friends I outfitted a small fast frigate.

I had my alt do some probing and wasn't long before.... bingo! Toodling over in the frigate our mission runner was busily shooting away and I started to salvage.

It wasn't long before I had the obligatory rant convo Cool Unfortunatley for me I was short on time (had to take the slapper indoors out for dinner Evil or Very Mad) so I decided to try something new.... Well it was new for me anyway....

I "ransomed" the wrecks for 5 mil. In return for the money I would go away and leave him to salvage. It worked. Profit. And I wasn't even late for dinner Laughing

I guess it's not exactly fool proof in the sense there is no guarantee that I wouldn't have salvaged them anyway, but that would be "bad for business".

So next time, if you're short on time OR can't be arsed to ninja salvage it all then try..... NINJA RANSOMING!

It worked, to be sure, but...don't you feel a little dirty for doing so? I mean, you're ransoming at the very bottom of the EVE food chain. Salvage = garbage floating around the joint. You're demanding money with menaces to let a guy pick that rubbish up...!

Well kinda, but I like the fact he paid to clear up floating crap that he shot in the first place. It also saved me 10 minutes of ninja salvaging.

If they really see them as "their" wrecks, then it's only fair they should pay to have them "back" LaughingLaughingLaughing

This has worked for me before. Depending on what kind of mission it is, you can get upwards of 10-20m.

Now now, there's no need to take it out of game and start with personal insults - it just makes you look silly. Also I'm pretty sure it wasn't your mission and "your" salvage I ransomed, so why the pouting? I could understand your displeasure if it were you.

Yes, I'm a guy playing a female character - that's not unheard of in EvE is it? Shocked I won't question your RL sex, but I will say that my portrait is considerably more easy on the eye than yours Razz and that people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

I had someone in a frig invade my mission. It was a drone one, forget the name, with the kazum mother drone. He salvaged a couple of wrecks, occupational hazzard no biggie.

I eventually pop the mother drone, he zips over, steals the Elite Drone AI and warps off, then tries to ransom it!

I laughed a lot. I was even going to give him my small pile of the useless drone AI chips in my hangar but he left system.

I think the poor noob thought he stolen the mission objective.

I look forward to the salvage thieves, they make me laugh :)

I posted my dissatisfaction and I to this rule.
I buy ammo and ship in mission risk, and someone comes and takes salvagele of my mission.
I do not agree and are the most serious that can not get him punished.
That is good for salvage of millet blueprint with various items and I just have to buy.
It's a big ERROR.

That's too bad. I suggest dealing with it or quitting.

They are not yours
They were never yours
They will never be yours

It will remain that way as long as you continue to say they are "yours", which they're not Razz

And yes, if you really really really want salvaged flagged as theft then New Eden will be littered with the corpses and wrecks of carebears everywhere.

As my Pappy used to say, one mans Crap is another mans profit margin.

Unfortunatly drowning in a vat of liquid umm waste, kinda proved to be his death.

Kudos on getting someone to pay for the wrecks they expended time on killing.

The only thing that in any way bugs me about ninja salvaging - its too easy. Any muppet can do it, and make a tidy profit. Everyone else in this game actually has to put some effort in, but salvagers just kida waft about, scooping up wrecks and pooping cans of crap modules.

In other words - you are having it WAY too easy.

I am actually tempted to give up missions, and take to salvaging. Screw having to DO stuff for my isk, I will just hoover up wrecks instead!

Hold on, I was watching the news on TV, reading this forum, downloading ****, and running a mission at the same time.

Are you implying that mission running is hard? Getting the needed skills to scan down a mission runner is a pain but the skills are very useful in wars. Scanning down a mission runner who wants to "play" can be a time consuming affair. Finding one that will pay a ransom due to stupidity takes time. I could probably make more isk mission running then doing mission runner scans. But it is fun because mission NPCs don't get mad and smack you in local like mission runners do. I'm in it for the interaction between fellow Eve players not for the isk.

Thats my point. Mission running is easy... but salvaging a mission is 1000x easier. probably 1000x more boring unless you factor in being an ass to people, but hey, if thats why you play this game then... well... I dunno. Just seems like a pretty lame reason to play a computer game you have to pay for.

I interact with Eve players. Everyone I actually play with regularly, I know, IRL. We mission run together and stuff. And its a lot more fun than scooting around ****ing people off.

I dunno. Something about the stated intent to generate 'smack' annoys me, since normally people who tell me they like 'smack' get booted in the crotch, and shoved into a trash bin, because I really REALLY hate junkies.
