Modulated Deep Core miner II on Marauder. You get a huge cargo hold drones and tank the beast like nothing else.

I'm partial to the idea of The Masters of Hulkageddon (HAG Masters) roaming space looking for Hulks but none appear.
Do one of the many OTHER things the game has to offer. Let the HAG Masters roam space, gate after gate, region after region, getting on each other's nerves till they're asking, "Whose brilliant idea was THIS?" I don't know.
The thought just appeals to me.

Paradise is like where you are right now, only much, much better.

Sold my Hulk and bought a Typhoon. Expanded cargo and Anchored containers.
If someone manages to blow that up the Insurance will cover it.

Really funny thing was a Hulk blew up the other day in the system I sold it in.

As others have suggested, just keep your Hulks docked, and either play another game or run missions or something that doesn't involve the symphony of the stones.

The longer the HaG the longer and more the miners leave. Eventually CCP will see it in the wallet THEN GUESS WHAT

Mining is the "Deadliest Catch" in this game

Another point here...

What the HAG board, for intel and the leaders - you should have the "reds" marked in your contacts so that you can see them

I spent the last HAG with the HAG chat channel going - red'ed everyone as they came in, and the corps, I never saw any in my local.

Also at one point I sent a message in that channel to them to come Gank two groups of bot-miners... and they wouldn't come, I posted SS of these two blob-groups in RT, and still they would not come... why?

Because it had passed in to the second/third phase, whree most know they are not going to win anything, the cost is not being compensated for and they rather quit trying, they chat a bit and all that at that stage the only real danger comes from the ones still in the running and top KBs... so you have a simply deal with that - now this time around they did post 100M per 10 Exhumers but still that is going negative on the ISK if you add in all that it takes to do, you might break even on Dessies, but if you are using anything else your def paying for your ganking.

Anyway, it is summer and the world is open to much more than just EVE, find something to do, or as someone suggested do some tech upgrades...

The best situation as a miner is this for HAG
1. Do not mine, why? because then the market goes nuts and their ships/modules/etc get more expensive, and your ships are safe in your hangar, no cost.
2. Sit and watch the Market, watch that in 30 days of this the market is going to be so miner friendly that you will easily make back any loses... that is what the Goons are planing on doing... called Market Manipulation... pay attention to it and make it work for you.

Ultimately you have to decide to do things your way, but it pays to stockpile minerals, build a few passive incomes - there are many, and when you put them together, HAG and such are never much of an issue... even 30 days of it.

Just come to Hakeri and the surrounding systems, the gankers are unlikely to get you among all the other hulks there.

No, biomass your miner and come back 10 hours later to confirm. Whammo! Can't be ganked when you were so proactive you can't do it anymore Twisted

Why mine at all? Get in a Thrasher/Brutix/Tornado and join the fun!

So a suscriber can´t be bothered not to mine for a month but will never mine again (ragequit) when being blown up?
Doesn´t really make sense to me, I must admit.

Of course, we are taking about a species that actually does the most boring part of this game, possible while being AFK and doing something else entirely, so "making sense" might not be the strongest argument here......

When i read dont mine, take your time to fight its a joke ? null sec player mine under bs protection and say high sec miner are carebear..... it's a piti to read that.
In this game everybody could find is way, but some guys have decide that you cant do that because its a pvp game.... these guys represent under 30% of the players and cry.
Eve isnt a pvp game.. eve is all that you want !!! go in your null sec systems little dictators.. dont forget eve is the property of all the players not a little part who want direct the others.

The thing gankers don't realize is that killboards are bad for their business. Cool
