I am curious, is there any such ability of pickpocketing in this game?
It's not a question of can or can't, there are some things in life you just do.

Unfortunately not. This isn't an full-fledged RPG at all, I'm afraid.

Certain things don't make sense.

and how many people would still play if, on a pvp server for instance, a fully geared 55 kept taking low levels credits? Not unfortunate at all, unless you want to get robbed of your earned credits

Here is how it should work: certain classes(lets say Smuggler and Agent) have this "pickpocket" ability which they can use on any playable character. If the ability fires successfully, they get a random piece of loot that is auto-generated by the game. To be clear, this is NOT taken from the other player's inventory, it is just a random loot roll.

HOWEVER(and here is the fun part), if the ability fails, then the smuggler or agent gets their PvP flag turned on for the person they were targeting, and the person they were targeting gets first attack if they choose to attack. If they do not want to attack, then they can just ignore it and go about their business.

It would have to be all classes though, I mean if its only certain classes the rest will get angry about it and people will just say dumb crap like "screw you biofail" for implementing it.

Hmm, I wasn't aware that RPG stood for "Role Playing Game where you can pickpocket other people". I assume that the last part was left out of the acronym in an effort to save space?
