I am sick and tired of hearing about suicide gankers. They're everywhere now, it's a profession!

I go through systems and see Concord all over the gates. I hear stories about it from people I talk to in various social channels all day long.

It's not that I'm afraid, I'm not afraid of it happening to me. I don't fly around with cargo worth anything.

It's just that it's cheap! It's like an exploit.

=-=-=-=-=

If I used my automobile to commit a murder, a crime, would the insurance company pay for the death of that person? If the drug police take my car because I was using it to sell drugs, would the insurance company pay me for my loss?

In the example above, note that I didn't say I used the car to kill someone by accident. I'm talking about a murder, if I murdered someone in my car do you believe the insurance company would pay for it?

Insurance companies are in the business to make money. They're not going to pay out if they can find any wiggle room that say they don't have to. Why should Eve insurance being going bankrupt supporting criminals?

Suicide bombers don't file insurance claims on their cars ...

They just yell, "I KEEEL YOU!" >>KRUNCH<< (props to Ahkmed the Dead Terrorist)

You nailed it.

Also, how is this making Eve cheap? I would say that it's making Eve expensive for everyone that gets ganked.

boring

If you drove your autombile into a war zone (0.0) and it got destroyed would you get insurance would you get insurance? nope

By all means drop insurance for crimes related offences, just drop it for 0.0 pilots to.

There are no insurance companies in EVE.
It's a game, and one of its rules is that you can insure ships and get your isk back when your ship pops. No rocket science behind it, just rules. And they are fine the way they are.

Ever played chess? Why is it that towers move faster than knights? Wouldn't you call me an idiot if I shouted "unrealistic!" ?

You can play the game as honorably as you like. No one is stopping you.

As far as CCP is concerned suicide ganking is part of the game, and I will play by CCP's rules, not yours, or the funny OP thank you very much
