Are we sure we aren't overreacting here? I don't feel like we've seen a lot of players taking extra bounties since the original change. And if a smaller player is attacking a larger player shouldn't you have the option of taking the financial hit to defend yourself without fear of setting off a larger set of events afterwards?

Sure you can take the hit, you just got to be cautious not to do it too often. Don't forget the bounty count drops over time.

There isn't a problem with a smaller player attacking a larger player. The problem is when you have a small player on a team that is being funneled vast amounts of money to upgrade their ship to attack other smaller players. Since they don't have any planets but maybe a couple their score is all in their ship and they can have a massive ship with a low score. They can attack other low ranked players who could never afford such a big ship or defend their planets from it.

As a side not the asterisks (**) on the ranking page no longer accurately reflect all of the new bounty changes. You will have to scan ships and planets to see the accurate result. It will be a while before we get the ranking code updated.
