I never ransom ships; I blow them up. I ransom pods, if I can catch them, and I keep the price reasonable, as even if you have just set of +3s in, 20m is reasonable, and its 20m more than a killmail for your damn pod is worth.

Normally, I get replies of the form A) You better never come to XYZABC 0.0 system, B) Some insult regarding my ethics, or C) death threats.

Always good for giggles.




If I ever get in a situation where a pirate tries to ransom my pod, I'd blow myself up for being stupid and eat the loss.

No quarter asked, no quarter given!

I'd probably reply along the line of: 'I gave all my ISK to the doctor to get rid of the VD I got from your mom.'.

Just for the sake of participating in the discussion: I'd pretend I speak another language.

"I would appreciate ____ ISK, else I'll have no choice but to destroy your ship."
"Ke?"
"Do you sprekken zee English?"
"Ke?"

I don't recommend saying "Ke?" actually, in case someone think it's short for 'okay' or something...

My plan, when I eventually got to pirating, was to just ask my victims a reasonable amount they can spare. This is mainly because I have no idea how to come up with a good price by looking at someone's character age, ship, cargo etc. So some money is better than no money, though I will ask for a minimum of 500,000ISK since that's how much it'd cost me to replace my ship and parts if I were to be destroyed.

Good plan? Probably not, but I'll give it a shot for the lulz at the very least.

I usually let them catch my pod so they can blow it up. I am too lazy to fly back to base and SP is under 900k anyway. They usually ask money for pod ransom. I just say "nah" and initiate self destruct. Sometimes they say something like "I like your style and let my pod go but that's not due to style or anything, they just do not want 20% sec status loss if their current status is not too bad. If it is under -5 they just shoot.

As for ransoms - never pay it. In 90% of cases they will not honor it. Just initiate self destruct to cut your losses Very Happy

Isnt the self destruct like 2 mins long? So they will just pod u instead.

Amounts...well the older the char the more isk they prob have.

For a pod, ask em how much they think thier life is worth, if they are flying a faction fitted, faction crusier an they say they have 10mil isk....yea....right!

Ships, well start at around %50 ship value and see wat they say.

I honour ransoms neway.

And i have let ppl go before just cos of the chat they give, i had one guy who was so depressed sounding i actually gave him his ship value back, he was in a dessie i think and i was in a rifter, he was ratting in lowsec. I told him to go buy his ship an stay out of Low till he knows what he doing.

Initiating self destruct sends clear message "either shoot me or let me go...either way I do not care so stop wasting my time". Saves you from unnecessary typing. What can I say...I am lazyVery Happy

I was told when I started playing to carry a Dancer in my bay, I asked why and was told when the time comes you will know. Hehehe I guess i know now.

I heard one a few months back that I thought would be pretty good. There was a Russian child who told his US foster parents: I burn you, on fire!!

If my pod has been caught in lowsec, is because I genuinly screwed up, and deserve to lose it. I'll generally cough up a few mil, as a 'congrats on catching a pod in lowsec' and then let them send me home.

Actually I've paid ransoms on the condition that they pod me.

"10mil and we'll let you go"
"I'll only pay if you promise to pod me"

No, this is NOT common, and no I won't be offering that any time soon

I'm surprised how little imagination ppl have when smacking.
There are so many words you can chain for great effect.

I find swearing in caps and adding the occasional none swear word in the middle for effect works great. Obviously I cant post an example here as the word filter would explode.

I was once a year ago ganked at a gate camp flying my PvE Drake with T1 modules in 0.4 space by a fleet of 6 battleships and an interceptor which had been damaged by someone else shortly before. It hadn't been repped yet. During the convo while I was in the convo for the ransom, I said "Enjoy your 9000 Scourge Heavy Missiles!" and fired two volleys at the inty. It popped just after I did because the missiles were still in flight.

Why give them the satisfaction? It's a lost cause? All guns fire! Podded or no, remain silent. You've just deprived them of the most important part. Twisted Evil


Or to be really annoying tell them ok you'll pay then just stay silent until the inevitable Evil or Very Mad
