For today’s TweetFeet discussion I feel compelled at repoasting the following forum op from EVE-O’s. In it a carebear explains how the tables has been turned a bit in their favors given the new bounty/kill rights system introduced in Retribution:
So that’s what a victory in this game feels like!
As a total carebear who likes mining and making things who, up until last week was about to give up on this game because I felt that I would never be able to get revenge against all those who have wronged me (check my kill board, there is been a few).
I took a good look into this and rubbed my dirty miners hands together.
At last a way I can get my own back.
So today I sold my kill rights, all of them, and a few hours after doing so, a notification popped up saying a kill right had been completed.
I checked the kill boards.
My loss, 50m, their loss, 58m.
Shortly after members of the pirate corp, threatened to come and find me and kill me. My simple reply, I have deep pockets, for every kill you make on me: I will add as a bounty on your corp, every kill right: I will sell.
I cant fight you, but others can and you will have to lose 5 x my loss for wronging me.
I swear, I could almost taste the pirate tears… Or is that carebear tears?
Now I understand why all them pirates for all these years complained so loudly as soon as there was any threat to their power. It was now time for them to feel like victims.
I have not once, in all of my game time in eve, felt like I had actually “won”. I felt like the beaten up bottom of the pile pesant that gets kicked around all fhe time. I didnt make this kill, but it felt like I did and it felt good.
So much so I sent the people on the kill mail a thankyou email and some extra ISK with encouragement to keep up the good work.
Oh revenge is so sweet.
Thank you CCP for allowing carebears to encourage the pew pew in others.
