    Well i think all pvp zone should have some risk not only to be killed.

    If oil rig field is a "noob" pvp area then add a lesser anti toxin shot with 2 ped value to be able to come inside.

    Let the area no lootable zone but reward the pker like when you kill someone without loot in pvp 4.

    Disable vehicule like other big pvp area because it's pretty useless atm (you can come with a vehicule but can't spawn one when you are inside).

    Do this and i think this place will become less drama.

    The battle at rig was also more often when drop size were 8-16 ped .

    one thing for sure is pvp needs to be changed, its not fair or balanced and never will be as long as
    there are vast differences in competing players due to the gear and weapons they have invested in as well
    as skills gained thru either yrs of playing or chipped in

    i find it laughable tho cos the people who want vehicles gone and rigs gone dont actualy want to pvp actual pvpers that
    can fight them, what they want is the vermin gone that seems to have taken over, and in their eyes steal their oil
    from what was once their territory hence why they are often called rig rats lol

    the fact that it costs them a little more than they would like shouldnt even be an issue
    if they really are there to pvp for fun, vehicles are not that hard to destroy, i know ive blown up
    a few sleips and vehicles myself lol

    what they really want is for the vermin to be gone and for them oncemore to stand at the pump picking the oil
    having a relaxed chat among themselves while kos any who are affordable to kill, or dont meet the level
    requirements, remember those days? i do,

    when i 1st tried to get anywhere near ashi assuming i wasnt shot on sight i would see 1 or 2 maybe more armoured
    players not even fighting each other, i would scanned then shot and maybe a statement RIG CLOSED!!

    demanding vehicles to be removed is simply an attempt to elliminate the means for weaker players or should i say vermin
    to get back to the rigs or to somewhat defend themselves from attack

    as any1 who has gone to ashi knows u cant walk to ashi, and if u are killed then u are stuck
    at a outpost surrounded by mobs

    it would be interesting to see what would happen if tp chips were banned also?
    cos then oh no... they have to ...walk lol
    and would have to fight thru the mobs also to get back to the rig, or even
    just escape lol

    and why should vehicles be banned? my investment was into vehicles cos i like them, and its 1 of the ways i choose to get
    around and pvp, i cant exactly hunt with them can i? so why should my investment into my apc jeep and cdf heli be rendered worthless
    cos i didnt invest into armour and guns yet?

    my investments are just as importand as urs, and i have just as much right to play the game how i want to play it as u do
    so cut the lies and the bs crap that any with a brain can see right thu and stop trying to twist the game to suit what uve invested
    in to give urself the advantage

    if u want to go pvp for fun or exterminate the vermin or whatever then just go do it and stop crying and complaining

    maybe 1 day pvp will be actual pvp and be blananced and fair, but this isnt possible without instanced pvp
    where people are matched based on their skills and gear

    so untill then ofc people are going to use what they can to defend themselves and fight back againt bullying control freaks
    that only seem to want to pvp players they know for a fact they can kill and cant fight back, ive seen it enuff times
    when other pvpers have shown up and and all that happens is there is a quick skirmish as they suss each other out
    then the pvp stops and ass kissing begins

    the only place ive seen proper pvp is land grabs which i also enjoy watching ;]

    so..what does that tell u?

    well when people think they are in a fair fight and have just as much chance of winning against their attacker then they may
    be more inclined to do so, but why would any in their right mind take on a player they know is far above their level and gear??
    they know they cannot win so whats the point lol

    people that go to oil rigs are there for something, mostly duh, the oil, but some also go there to hunt or mine or even all of these,
    on occasion some do want to pvp and have some fun but it seems as i said its only if they know they can dominate, and dont seem interested in fighting any that can actually fight back and kick their ass lol

    however i can undertand some of the frustration, especially if those at the rigs seem to only take take and take and never have depo or never will
    but its easy to forget that some like my self have and do depo, just not as often as some of u, and after all the game claims to be free
    to play, even tho tho those that have actually tried it will know its nearly impossible, and there is very little for the free player to do to earn their ped
    and the oil rig is 1 of those very few options,

    but what will some cry over next? i mean how dare those free or low depositng players get free rocks,fruits, sweat or piece of dung
    depoing players paid for that, it starts to make me wonder who is the greediest? lol

    some of the high depositors in entropia get to play the game in ways some can only dream of and its still never enuff for some, they always seem to complain over something and want everything to be their way, i mean after all when uve paid insane ammounts of money then i guess u want control and to make more money back i guess lol
    these people are on such high pedastals that those below them seem exaclty that, and appear to be bug like pests they just want to step on lol

    having more ped or having played longer than me does not make u a superior gamer or person, and respect is earnt not demanded no matter how many times u kill me
    i will never bow to u, respect u, or kiss ur ass, ur just a entitled rich bully and i look forward to when a bigger or same size fish shows up to kick ur ass
    and 1 day it just might be me thats comming after u, with just as much mercy and repect u showed to me when i was once noob and weaker than u, i dont get mad or cry but
    i dont forget either how people treated me and i will enjoy serving back some of that karma ;]

    lets just hope for some of ur sakes i dont ever come into alot of peds and start taking pvp sereously, fighting to win as well as fun,
    cos ive seen most of u fight and im not impressed, not that many are using what they have to its true potential
    only a very few i would consider worthy opponents to fight on a even playing field ;]

    but yes while i know the game is free to play, at least for now, those that do should whenever possible depo now and then, even if it is a small amount whatver they can afford, its just not right to expect a 100% free ride forever without ever putting anyting in and even so to those that think they can freeplay forever and make money taking from the game then i think withrawal should not be possible till at least 50k ped or something has been depoed in over time and must verify their account,
    this at least might slow down and deter some that bot and use alts and just in general try n only take money from the game

    those that care about pvp and fairness will aggree with most of what im saying and i did like the idea of a toxic shot required to enter and the pvpers getting some reward on successful kills ;]

    but pvp as it is now no, its not true pvp its just ped vs ped uber vs noob and those trying to twist the game so it suits them and what theve invested in giving them superiority
    and control

    so those that really care about fun and fair pvp and enjoy fierce competition on a even playing field then lets try to make this kind of pvp a reality
    but until that day im going to use what i choose to use and invested in and play how i want to play

    so i think the idea of banning vehicles or removing rigs a stupid idea why take from the game and screw with other peoples investments forcing them to play only 1 way while clearly
    handing over the avantage to players that invested and play in this 1 way??

    can we plz have more fair suggestions that improve the game making it fair and balanced for all and not biased 1s that want to pay for their advantage and the game shaped to suit them?
    lol

    or maybe im just wasting my time and the only thing that makes sense is to cash out b4 i become to heavily invested and leave all the cry baby elitists to have their way
    ive already lost some friends who have left this game for varying reasons, either boredom or sick of the bugs and unbalanced rigged unfairness and politics of the game

    personally i wont be making any more big investments as i dont think this game will be around for long unless things drastically change bringing the game to the
    level it should be at, and things in game balanced appropriately according to the players investments, skill and equipment
    the game should be enjoyable for every1 regardless of how much they invested atm i get a funny image of 2 guys in armani suits doing a funny looking battle
    slapping each other with their wallets and throwing credit cards like ninja stars till 1 runs out of money lol

    anyway thats my bag of 2 pecs and rant over lol

    have fun

    JJ ;]

    lol, off topic? This is supposed to be a constructive thread about fixing the fecking broken oil rig not the stupidly broken PVP system. But I totally agree with you, seriously needs something done on that subject! You should make a thread with some brilliant ideas how to fix it?

    The value of drops varies between 2.4 and 3.6 PED.
    On average every 5 minutes.

    I'd say oil rig drop an average of 750 PED oil every day.

    I'm not voting because I do think that if MA does nothing else, in the current state of affairs, we should indeed ban vehicles around the oil field, BUT...

    I believe that in reality vehicles should be allowed in PvP (including PvP lootable).

    I'd prefer that they really think about it, and work on making PvP more interesting, more attractive, and more fun.

    So rather than just banning vehicles, I think it's a good idea (as Leya said) to implement an anti-toxic shot of 2PED (I would even say 2.5 PED) for the whole PvP area of the oil rig.
    This would also be needed to go and mine Pyrite, and people would really fight for it.

    And as for the oil rig itself, put a penalty that prevents someone from coming back for at least 5 minutes after they have been killed by another player. (so anti-toxic + 5 minutes penalty on the oil field)

    If they do this, then Sleipnir should not be a problem anymore.
    Noobs could still come in team, whith vehicles and mounted weapons, I'm ok to fight.

    Eventually increase the amount of oil droped there.

    And then the players will start to really fight, for good reason...
    Do it and you will see wars there..

    That's what PvP is for, right ?..

    i do want to pvp ...in a fair fight... atm there is no point

    cos as i said pvp is unbalanced .. there is no contest at all as the difference in player skills and gear is to vast

    and as i also said.. even if pvpers are balanced they dont seem to want to fight each other anyway
    and only kill the weaker players lol

    well at least ive never seen any fair fights with evenly matched pvpers, certainly not at oil rigs
    well a fight that lasted more than 5-10mins lol

    i stand by my suggestion of making all pvp instanced where players of similar skill and gear are matched fairly

    and also yes add a entrance shot or something with some penalties and rewards
