I played an RPG that did this and it didn't work out so well.
The two main problems with that were:

1. you put a bounty on someone and they just had one of their friends kill them for the bounty.

2. The person who put the bounty up gets listed and the bountied person and his friends
all continually bounty that original bounty poster til he quits the game.

I think it might be able to work in this game with some of the things they say they have in mind for it.

1. Not sure this can happen here since you can only be killed by the 2 opposing factions in PvP. And they have said that the game will be much like early DAoC where you can only have 1 faction per server. So unless you have multiple accounts there won't be much of this going on. And I don't think they are going to allow you to place bounties on players of your own faction.

2. This could be a problem but I'm not sure it will be. You are placing bounties on players of the opposite faction. I doubt they will even know there is a bounty on their head since they will not have access to the same bounty boards as your faction. There is also an easy fix for this in that you only show who the bounty is for and not who posted it.

With 3 sided PvP I think it can work. Just need to put a few things in place so it can not be exploited or people get grieved for placing bounties on others.

I actually like the bounty idea but hated the fact that it was able to be exploited in that other game I played.
Hopefully it works well.. If so it will be a great addition.

Unfortunately, I wont play a Sci-fi game (star Wars is my first and last) so I won't know how good it is in actuality.
