SIC Alias Cooldown
a minor nerfing for alias hopping

We've added a 20 second cooldown following the transmission of any message from your SIC, preventing you from changing your alias immediately after sending it. This is not an IC change, just us boxing in the scope to ensure a small window for identifying the source of your ire.
Can't really say I like this. In addition to the helping people track down hoppers, if you're switching between your personal and work aliases it opens a window for people to steal your alias. -1
I love this. Makes alias hopping a bigger risk. Baka's gonna baka anyway.
There are ways of tracking down and dealing with alias thieves.
When you don't read this thread first and find out the hard way what's going on after shit-talking on SIC

Hah!
Oh no! Someone has stolen my corpie alias! What EVER shall I do!!!
I am going to hold all of your aliases for ransom now, thanks Johnny.
*Alias hops*

*talks shit*

*Steps into sewers for 30 seconds*

Fools

A cloaked figure lurks in a shadowy corner of the sewers before you.

You enter the sewers and nod, "Hey chum, alias hopping?"

The figure nods, "You know it mano!"

From above, you hear the sewer grate creak open and a voice call down, "HEY! ANY MORE ROOM DOWN THERE?!"

Pay others to do your shit talking for you.

I laughed entirely too hard at this.

Screw being a runner. The market for being a dedicated SIC warrior just got a whole lot more lucrative!
How's this feeling a day later?
Not much of a difference.
Definitely more apprehensive alias jumpers, it feels.
People are definitely being a whole lot smarter about their hopping. Nobody wants to be found out because they were loud.
Less shit talking spam from my observation, especially regarding certain business.
