I couldn't agree more.  If Sony can't or won't do something about the cheaters, exploiters, and buttheads, the bounty system allows the players to do something about them.

Before anyone says it, yes I am aware they can do something without the bounty system.  But guess what?  Sometimes, people need incentives.  Being someone's guildmate isn't always enough.  Being someone's RL friend isn't always enough.  Throw cold hard cash on the line and the deed will be done.  If you aren't strong enough to pay back that yellow or better con and can't get someone else to take them out by just asking, bounty.

To everyone here who actually thinks bounties are a good idea:If you cant figure out how to exploit a bounty system, you are likely one of the idiots who would be putting bounties on people while the rest of us have our guildies help us rob you blind.

Personally I'd almost hope they implement something like this, but only because I need plat and know a few q's who are probably stupid enough to put a bounty on me.... (if you were all merely agreeing with this idea for this reason then Im sorry for blowing your cover) SMILEY

Just as a notice to anyone who hasnt bothered to read the whole thread and jumps to the last page:THIS IS FAKE, THE SCREENSHOTS ON THE FIRST PAGE ARE NOT REAL.

Just to start out, I know that the screenshots are "fake" and I am mightly disapointed that they are.  Doesn't mean that it is not a good idea.  The fact that a bounty system -- however hypothetical -- is potentially exploitable is not a legitimate argument against such a system.  Perfection is not a human trait.  No system can be "bullet proof," perfect in its implementation.  Sure there will be people that game the system -- there always are.  The question is -- and the only question relevant herein -- is whether if SOE created such a system they could limit the impact of those players against the players who don't seek such exploits.  Surely as time goes on SOE could patch exploits that become apparent if they are game impacting.  But if they don't ask yourself -- how do these "Exploits" effect you and your game play?  If you don't like the bounty system -- or believe you are merely giving your money to opposing players -- don't use it.

A mod already responded to this post.  If it were Fake one would think he would say something about it.

The only big fix that this needs is away to prevent someone from collecting the bounty on their own head.

The only way thats even close to possiable is if the person never knew they had a bounty on them in the first place.

Maybe if something else was used instead of cash, something like status. I mean why use cash as a bounty why dont we use status as the bounty currency. Sure its not fool proof but we get status off killing each other anyway why not use that as the means to seek revenge of your death.

I mean wouldnt you love 100k status and a guild anouncement that you  collected a huge status bounty. This would not effect the cash market and yet still give a reason to collect. I would have no problem placing a status bounty on every single person that kills me why not its just status. just would have to make it only effect personal status and not guild status or it would give folks a reason to explot for guild levels.

This would be soo freakin cool! Talk about adding a really nice flare to the pvp system. We could use some flare. Shenanigans requires 20 peices themselves!

I'm really glad this turned out to be fake. As someone posted earlier in the thread, UO had this exact system in place other than the fugitive title, and it just meant people killed their buddies all day for the bounty money. It just plain doesn't work.

(( actually, the official documented mechanics system we had designed for a propsed Bounty system was never publically released in full, only pieces of it were revealed here and there to correct peoples assumptions.What many people may have in their heads as the 'way this Bounty idea works' is most likely a small piece of the greater picture.A rough copy of the design was presented in person to a developer for SOE in vegas last year and its potential loop-holes were briefly discussed and remedied (in theory) to prevent exploitation, which is, unfortunately, quite inevitable anyways. But which system is perfect?The bounty system we worked on can be called 'similar' to UO's bounty system, but nowhere near 'exact'. In full, the system on paper is infallible, but realistically, EQ2 cannot be redesigned for a simple small pvp element such as this, so it isnt feasible; given the budget and time constraints of implementing such, as stated in the OP

How [Removed for Content] [Removed for Content]!!!!

 Just another reason to role more scout classes out!!!

 Another reason not to go out and PVP!!!

On the face I was like yay GOGOGO Bounty Hunting, but in reallity players will be able to check bounties on there heads from city to city. How many of you are really going to put a bounty out on a swashy or assassin when you know this is a major piece of crap. Can anyone say EXILE lol.

 They should work on solo class balance instead of adding this fluff. With the time and effort they could put in Tinkered Crystal Balls mages can use to track with ( had to Im a mage lol). Fix the current completely outta wack resist/mitiGAYtion BS that hurts the pvp game. I was dropped in 4 sec for over 5kdam without even so much as a reacharound by a tallanted assASSin. His AA makes him untargetable and that didnt really matter because I can cast anything while stunned all to heck (/rant, sorry).

 Anyhow my point is simple FIX the PVP servers for PVP =

1= PVP gear thats for PVP

2= AA lines for PVP

3= CA resist gears

Tracking for ALL yes ALL via totems and or tinkered items

 The time and energy implimenting a system that the players will figure out how to EXPLOIT before it goes live is foolish at best.
