I have been reading reports on various channels regarding upcoming changes to New Eden that affect the way capsuleers are “flagged” for their conduct in space. New Eden is not a safe place, even with the presence of CONCORD in high security (hi-sec) space. To curtail criminal activity in New Eden, when a capsuleer performs what could be seen as aggression on either another capsuleer or on a pirate faction the offending capsuleer will receive an “aggression timer” or a “global criminal countdown”.
These timers have various repercussions within New Eden and have major impacts to how we fly our ships. I recently received this excellent report from Abbadon21, a fellow capsuleer with years of piloting experience, on what the new “Criminal Flagging” system will achieve and how it affects us as capsuleers.
Fly (less) safe!
