The warzone has undergone its regularly scheduled flip, and the Minmatar are now enjoying higher warzone Tiers.
I have been making ISK through other means, so I cannot bring myself to farm missions or plexes for the sake of pulling in vast sums of LP. However, I find that it is quite easy to make a decent sum of LP when you are at Tier 4 just by camping inside plexes for targets, and doing general pvp.
This has me thinking about low-sec. And, I had an idea.
What if CONCORD, or some other group, created a new NPC corporation dedicated to fighting crime in low-security space. This corporation would pay out LP for all criminal kills, in much the same way that Faction War pilots are paid LP for killing each other. (You wouldn’t have to join the NPC corp or anything.)
We wouldn’t have to worry too much about exploitation because this is something that CCP has already done in Faction War. It has been observed closely for a couple years now, and adjusted. So, we’d just have to take what now works in FW and apply it to this.
If they wanted to take things a little further, they could create a pretty cool LP connected to this new NPC corporation. They could offer the usual stuff LP stores have, but they could also add exclusive items, such as special ship skins, and perhaps a new line of ammunition, or etc.
The other night, me and a friend were out roaming and we each got over 20,000 LP for killing a Pilgrim. So, between the two of us that was enough to nearly purchase a Stabber Fleet Issue in our LP store –just for one kill!
Imagine people coming to low-sec for the chance to make ISK hunting criminals?
Anyway, just a thought.
