EVE Online adds in dirt and kill marks to ships

Well, that's a scuff.

A factory-fresh ship in EVE Online should not look exactly the same as one that’s been through countless corporate wars. There should be some distinguishing characteristics. That’s why the game’s next update on December 8th is adding in new surface details to ship hulls with dirt and kill marks. Dirt, as it currently stands, is a simple system: All ships accumulate dirt slowly over time, although the effects can be cleaned off manually. Future updates are meant to include specific markers on ships from specific events, but for the time being it’s simply a matter of time since the last cleaning.

Kill marks, on the other hand, add a running tally of how many ships have been blown away by the ship in question. The marker counts kill shots on player-piloted ships and only for ships that are actual targets; blowing away rookie ships won’t help you earn a high kill tally. You can see the marks in action in a video embedded just below.

It is the little touches that add the spice. I remember this being asked for years ago.

Pointless waste of time and money. They should be developing things to make the game actually fun.

I play eve for the peaceful ( mostly) mining and simple acquisition of ships and goods.. After playing other PvP games or not I like the boring, albeit serene mining scene at times. The only marker i would have is from ganking a lowbie in High Sec space to show my friend just getting started what would happen.

Nyphur Samizdat You’re rich; it’s EVE. As the old joke goes, “all we are negotiating on is price”

So you can hire others to undock

Or if you do a Citadel to test it out, then membership or admittance could be contingent or improved via letting you kill them X times.

Or abuse your position of trust: do a MassivelyOP welcome to EVE.  Encourage people to roll a trial account and go to a location on a certain time where tell them you will kill them. StreamTeam could help MoP monetize it.It costs them no money
They get the true EVE experience of dieing by an overwhelming opponent
Theyget the true EVE experience of benefiting their elders in ways they don’t understand.
