Summary[edit]

This exploitable tactics is mostly related to some types of stations due to size of docking range. It allows players to engage in risk-free PVP, and is one of the key factors in making engagements on stations sometimes extremely dull. This tactics however is not related just to empire and empire wars, but also common to low-sec and sometimes even 0.0.

Solution[edit]

  • Modify agression docking timer in a way it depends on a ships mass, which prevents performing those actions within a certain time after the last aggressive act was committed. Higher the mass (or in simple terms, bigger the ship) longer is the docking aggression timer.
  • Apply the docking and jumping aggression timer to anyone that assists someone currently aggressed.
  • Reduce the size of stations docking range to more accurately reflect station model.

Pros[edit]

  • Fix to an exploit mechanics

Cons[edit]

  • More dead ships (also a pro)
