In the artikel, blair told about some anonymous bounty, that you could put on someone, you could even put it on your ally hehe.

As players destroy ships and structures of that enemy, they receive money from the pool proportional to the value of what they destroyed.' The design goals: Provide an in-game incentive for cooperation against a clear 'powerhouse' opponent, and offer an alternative for economy-focused players to deal with military-minded enemies The names of the bounty placers are kept anonymous. This can lead to some interesting psychology between players.' Fraser says. To what degree can I trust that my ally isn't using income from our trade agreement to put a price on my head?
