It's ridiculous that people can sit in station all day with no danger.

I have no problem with the general concept of docking. But there's no counter to pilots who log in but never undock! At any time they could simply undock from the station, even with a whole gang, and attack people indiscriminately.

When I'm in a solar system and I see people I don't know in local, but I *know* some of them are sitting, invulnerable, in a station, it drives me mad! Mad I say!

Here's my suggestion: after 30 seconds of being docked, pilots are randomly chucked out of the station with all their belongings and ships. Then they have to scramble to pick up all their clothes and their widescreen tv and their action figures while I sit a few kilometers away in my battleship, spraying them with the garden hose. It's the only fair solution.

30 seconds? You can at least be reasonable.

I think that anyone idle in station for over 2 hrs should be disconnected from game. This would free up a lot of bandwidth/lag issues. If you're idle in station for over 2 hrs then chances are .. you're not there.

I just think it's collossally unfair that pilots can sit around all day in their SoloPwnStations and play Eve on easy mode.

Maybe we can develop some sort of probing system where we can probe out players in stations and fire a missile at their unprotected meat body of squishy meat...?

This is about the upcoming cloak nerf.

Strange way to whine about the incoming cloaking nerf, in my opinion.

No no no.

Just because i spend long periods afk or just doing station and market stuff doesn't mean I don't ever undock and in fact I do and even sometimes take risks !!!!! :-O Shocked

You're using peverse logic. Like saying "no one ever go outside again ever so we don't have to pay cleaners to wipe muddy floors and can get rid of doors and doormats"

How about get rid of stations instead?

We can have 1/3 systems with a station rather than 3/1 stations/system

That's not the point. The point is that ONE ENEMY PILOT sitting in a station can ruin the game for everybody in the whole solar system. If I see a red square in local chat, I have to immediately flee the system in case he undocks next to me and starts shooting. My entire alliance has been brought to its knees by these Stationeers exploiting a game mechanic to wage a psychological war of terror and uncertainty on us with their Stationy tactics.

Simple - docked people shouldn't show up in local! They already show up in the guest list!

Oh and I thought this said "nerf afk docTers" at first. I wasn't sure what to think.

I think this is an EXCELLENT way of whining about the upcoming cloak-nerf, as it is essentially the same arguments used as against afk-cloakers Laughing

Why not just have an "AFK" indicator on people's pictures. If you do nothing for awhile the indicator lights up letting everyone know that person is not about. Maybe have a one minute timer that disallows undocking or warping when you return to the game (to avoid people pouncing out of a station upon return).

Seems that would solve your troubles fairly well.

I agree, you should be able to dock and use the upcoming Revelations walk-around-the-station thing to be able to attack enemies. It wouldn't be too hard to add a FPS engine to the game. Hey, you could even have special ships dedicated to attaching themselves to enemy vessels, cutting through the hull, and you could slaughter everyone inside to take over the ship. Kind of like the Salvage Corvettes in Homeworld Twisted EvilTwisted Evil

My character needs a 25mm Autocannon II to carry around during ambulation.

75dps with 2x 25mm Autocannon II's loaded with Quake XS.

Possibly more efficient to rely on Minmatar alpha against other characters hmm...

The solution to this could well be found in the walking in stations upgrade planned. What we need is a new type of skills - personal combat training. Power, Speed, Accuracy, kick, punch, block, etc. If you can see someone in the station, you can attack them with the same rules as applies to that sec concord / war decs / etc. with the exception that if you get concorded you get a 1 day game ban (in prison), and if you "kill" a war target they count as being podded.Razz

what if hes a trader then there is no reason for him to undock and fight. who cares if there is 1 one bad guy in system. if you are worried so much have an alt in station with him so you know when he undocks and go about doing your thing. honestly there are other ways then nerfing stations to appease you and others. why does everyone think their way of playing is the right way and everyone should play that way

When we get walking in stations you can go over to them and write stuff on their foreheads.

I don't have any friends. The people I used to play with have all embraced this docking exploit and I don't want any part of those cheesy tactics.
