What do you mean not actually attacking them? That is absurd. The example you keep asking for has already been provided. If I am in my aspect and a blue or 2 try to gank me and put the suit on CD I basically would have to leave or die. Clearly I don't want to stick around and fight in my aspect suit so I would run my ass to the gate and take off, if I make it, I should absolutely punish them by counting. If I don't make it and am killed, I will also count. You are suggesting that if the person escapes, the attackers should be free of punishment, I disagee. This isn't "grasping at straws", this is UO and blues attack other blues all the time, and they ought be help accountable as current mechanics allow.
