Double Down the Drain

Previously, on MinerBumping... Rebel carebear Ms Launa, a resident of the "Mining" channel, shocked the conscience of highsec by pointlessly spending billions of isk on a bounty for my one-man alt corp.


Agent DJentropy Ovaert was concerned for the carebear, even if she was a Code-violator. He wanted her to avoid making any further use of the bounty system--a mechanic she clearly did not understand.


Ms Launa wasn't interested in reason, though. She was drawn to the madness.


DJentropy pleaded with her. She was dangerously close to becoming intoxicated by her wild, useless spending on bounties.


Alas, even the Agent's heroic efforts could not save Ms Launa from doing something she would regret forever.


Incredibly, Ms Launa tripled her 5 billion isk bounty on my one-man alt corp. The bounty now stands at over 15 billion--on a shell corp that could be re-rolled in a few minutes with 3 million isk.


Though ignorance related to the bounty mechanic is widespread, Ms Launa's was of uniquely great proportions. Of all the thousands of corporations in EVE, Experimental Fun Times Corp RELOADED now has the biggest bounty. Fifteen billion isk down the drain.

And people wonder why highsec needs a Saviour?

    DJ mentioned this yesterday, but he said 4 bill, not 15. That's insane. Now you can't re-roll the corp since you're at the top of the eve leaderboards!

  2. around $350 in current PLEX prices. How ppl can be so rich and so stupid at the same time?

  3. Please, please enter a convo with her.

    Then re-roll the corp, and point out that you effectively just ganked her for 15 billion ISK.

    You could try to break Erotica's record for personal bounty and get the Savior of Hisec's face plastered on all the gates!

  4. She could have paid her mining permits for the next 1500 years with that :(

  5. Re-roll the corp then taunt her that she doesn't have enough ISK to make you #1 again. Of course, let's hope she does.

  6. To those saying re-roll, closing the corporation (as well as biomassing a character) refunds all bounties placed on it.

    1. 80% for corp? 50% for char?

    2. Right, but since the bounty is on a shell corp you would simply need to put a placeholder toon in the corp then move the main toon to a different shell corp. I am assuming that is effective at freezing up the money while freeing up the main? It seems like at that point you may even be able to *profit* by putting the place-holder in a decent, insured ship and destroying it repeatedly? Would insurance + bounty result in *profit* at that point?

    3. No. Insurance doesn't pay the other 80%

  7. insane?
    the sign is clear like a clear blue sky.
    if you ever dare to show your shiny licked ass, ppl will gather to get you fucked. You have to stay where you are cowardly hidden, far from action spouting stupid propaganda only your not so smart followers believe. fine knights you are crouching hidden in lies and game mechanics. i hope CCP will give miners some tools to get you back.
    but still, even without, you are the bottomfeeders of EvE.

    1. Yet another person who really doesn't understand the bounty system mechanics...

    2. bottomfeeders? Like the ones who feed on the bottom? Just to follow your analogy, the NO preys on miners. If they're bottomfeeders, then obviously the miners are the bottom of EVE. I don't agree with your argument, but I do agree with your argument's logical conclusion.

    3. tools to get back? what, miners can't fit guns?

      I think he means tools that allow them to get you back without any effort, and while AFK. Bonus points if you can still max yield while doing it.

    5. Goodbye bot-aspirant AFK losers, we don't want you in our game. James & his agents are just culling the sheep flock. . . .

    6. No one gives two shits about bounty. It's capped at something like 20% of the value of the ship lost. If someone, by some miracle, blew up the James' stabber, you're talking what? 12 million? And that's if it was a solo kill.

      When it comes to bounties, it goes
      1. Profitable and desirable to seek out for all
      2. Not profitable for the bounty target

      Pick one.

    7. CCP already gave miners a way to get back at gankers. They're called PvP ships.

    8. @ anon 5:05:

      And drones, and mining ships capable of being tanked, and Concord... :)

      If a miner is "helpless" in this game, it is because they have chosen to be helpless.

    9. I imagine the next miner that actually uses his/her kill right to get revenge, instead of just selling it, will be the first.

  8. Bounty is Eve's highscore points. Congratulations James315!

  9. How about sticking to a corp and being a man instead of rerolling corps whenever you get wardecced?
