Has anyone else experienced this situation? I’ll warp into the system and start drifting around in EmCon, waiting to spot my target. After about 5+ minutes, I’ll get a notification that the bounty was completed. Not that I am complaining, free money and I don’t have to restock any torpedos. It can be frustrating when I don’t notice the bounty complete message and spend a while searching for a target that doesn’t exist.
I’ve completed my bounty while watching the target drift through asteroids, so I guess they can die that way. It’s a little odd when I can’t see the target perish, the bounty issuers are omniscient beings who immediately know when the target is killed.
