So, when we are eventually allowed to walk in stations and meet other players face to face, what's keeping us from killing them while they're miles away from their pod?

I would love to knock someone off in a station while they have no access to their clones. a.k.a. Non-consensual biomassing. So many people in this game truly deserve it, and I'm guessing a lot of those people will come to this thread just to whine and cry and say it should never happen. But it totally should happen, because of all the whining and crying and the rivers of tears that would ensue.

Methinks CCP did not think this through. We're mostly guys here.... we should be playing G.I. Joe, not Barbie. Inside a station should be one of the most dangerous parts of the game (with equally awesome possible rewards, of course).

Of course, I didn't think it through either, but there's a hell of a lot to think about when you consider the possibilities. Besides, I just wanted to throw the idea out there and get a reaction.... so I guess I'm actually trolling. heh... didn't really mean to but there it is.

Have fun with that. Twisted Evil

Your looking for some form of reality I guess?

Well lets have a shot at it, there's no reward for no risk so you bump someone off a station walkway and the victim falls 5 floors to there death. Your then caught and thrown in the station prison for 10 years.

Sounds cool to me, effectively your deleting the char by doing so.

Weapon scans, nano kill bots, suppression fields, station medical teleports. Basically any science fiction mcguff the writers can come up with, thats what.

Seriously though, CCP have led us to believe that it is planned, to do so though will no doubt come at a heavy heavy price.

at least let us bump people in stations and line up and have conga bumps and stuff to keep guys from getting to their CQs and make them run crying to the hall monitors.

that's part of the problem

not only was CCP catering to newbs that felt they needed an avatar aside from a ship but also expanding the female player base...and who doesn't want that? :P

I'm 100% in support of in-station PVP. Non-consensual pvp. I think players would have personal shields, ala DUNE, that would prevent most weapon damage. Though, if your shield was taken out and you got shot in the head.. BOOM-Headshot!

I think it'd be more like security status. Suicide gank in high/low, but null its your ass. First few weeks will be [expected] chaos, but it'll balance out.

Well, according to the CSM minutes, it looks like it will be kind of a Vampire G.I. Barbie:
Quote:

It was also noted (again) that each CCP game provides elements that can be re-used in other games; examples given included:
* the WoD combat system being reused in Incarna.


But don't worry too much about the lore, they're just making it up as they go at the moment.

My guess if it was implemented would be that it probably wont be possible in Highsec, but lowsec and 0.0 you could be fair game.

pilot 1 ".... I feel invinsible in my Supercapital!"
pilot 2 "oh really ... I just learned how to fly a Destroyer" /pulls out gun .... KABOOM!!!

Could be tricky to balance though Smile

Would you get a Killmail for that?

maybe let us practice by jumping and dancing (or doing bikram yoga if that fits the mod characters better)

U'll be doing that stuff in Dust when ur not running planetary missions. That is if they want to make it more than just a Battlefield Clone.

They could make this just like pvp currently is (minus blobs).

In hisec, if you fight, you immediately get swarmed with space cops.

In lowsec, if you fight in a very public place (bars/clubs/ect..) you get a couple space cops on you, but not so many that you couldn't fend off with a few buddies. And if you fought in a less open space (a hallway or something of the sort) you didn't get any space cops on you.

In null, no space cops, you can have a big ass bar blob and the bartender will keep serving you until someone kills him.

Sure they thought this through - you are alpha testing WoD for them with you sub. There isn't going to be any in-game station contact beyond "Blink, Blink" and local chat in stations... you can simply model your new avatar, dress it up in Emo-Vampire clothing [notice that nothing in the clothing line up is even remotely space, but looks alot like LARP/Vamp crap] and you can all stare at one another all day and "spin the Model" - Welcome to the Future!

*Note that with all that dev time going to this - the next 18Months, nothing in EVE spaceships will be changed, fixed or added... just LARP/crap - oh joy. I SO hope that WoD epic fails like DUST will and CCP gets it head around when it realizes that EVE is the ONLY game that is ever going to be of substance to them... and they better start working hard on the core and not the stupid frosting.

Apart from the fact supercaps cant dock and they wouldnt be wandering around in station...

but maybe in your own stations you should be able to kick people out (you own it, i mean...) haha

He didn't say he docked in his supercap, just that he felt invincible while he was in it.

Why he was out of his supercap to dock is beyond me though.

Edit, stupid quote mistake.

How about, when (and if) DUST players can interact with EVE, you could hire a bunch of DUST mercs to shoot a pilot you wanted dead? It's not like any capsuleer would ever think some ground-hugging grunt would have the balls to attack an immortal death-from-above pilot.

Wearing a top hat and using our lovely Monocles or Lorgnettes i expect CCP makes station fight true to this.
