Grow some ******* balls or move to another system.

AFK Cloacking is a mechanic that is perfect as it is and must not be touched. Carebare in a pvp ship or in groups if you are so fail that you are afraid of a cloacky ship that usually can do less dps than what you tank in a lvl1 mission you really should not be in null sec.

It can be implemented today no need to waste dev time.

1. It's spelt "cloaking"
2. AFK Cloaking isn't a problem --> since he's AFK he can't hurt you.

It's the bastard pretending to be AFK whilst getting a good warpin on you that's the real problem...

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

First of all not all of us are from UK or US so we dont all speak perfect English or type everything out correctly. Second this mechanic is one of the better ones in EvE that needs no fixing or change its implemented the best possible way.

If you are in 0.0 space you know that you lost the security of High Sec police and CONCORD therefore you accepted AFK cloacking as a viable tactic. In addition fi you chose to go to 0.0 space you have accepted the fact that you will be pvp ready. So your solution is either go afk, go to a new system or grow a pair of balls and carebare in a pvp fit ship so when someone warps on you you can fight them off.

You have intel channels, d-scan, local and your corpmates as well as alliance mates to overwhelm whoever is attacking you. Not to mention ships that can warp cloacked do pretty **** dps and a proper fit ship can tank them.

Warp in and align out.

And get this in your head: AFK Cloacking is perfected mechanism that needs no touching. And you can cry all you want but it will not be changed.

MAKE THE CHANGE YOURSELF

Yes deal with it its not a broken mechanic, its one of the best tools to greif carebares. Either grow a pair of balls and fight back or move to a new system or go afk in their system.

But dont come on forums shitting on a perfectly balanced mechanic.
