Yeah. Mackinaws only have ~15k EHP untanked (and miners are still not fitting a tank despite it being MUCH easier to tank now than pre-patch)


are you shitting me? people aren't tankin their macks?

a pilot with a +3% CPU implant can fit a [2MLU ore/2 IHU ice] mack that would take three 'nadoes to pop!
FFS.. off to post fits on battleclinic to help the dumbfuck newbs.

Tedium and difficulty are not the same thing, if you don't realize this then STFU about game design.

Change it to Elite PVP event or something. Also lol at that goon bomber who was killed by a mining barge.

Maybe the Big Mack Attack.

In the cat-and-mouse game that is low sec, there is no shame in learning to be a better mouse.

I want to call it the Mackacaust, but that works better with Hulkacaust.

Why do I have this sig? I don't smoke.

Yep, I lost my Mack last night mining in a 0.5 system. Mine had a 26K EHP tank....two catalysts took it down easy.

I was at the keyboard. Still though it was my fault....I saw the combat probes on scan, but just didn't think they were after me.

Shrug, I think I'll just use a retriever from now on there.

they prob wouldn't even be doing it if they weren't awful at pvp. Real pvpers prefer a challenge and people who actually would feel defeated when they die. Unfortunate that they are so rare in EVE.

This.


Also I think Mackarena would be appropriate. Horrible song, horrible dance for a horrible idea.

and big plus 10 for that Goon bomber stooge who died to a skiffs drones. Very leet.

True. The Goons are done with the new barge changes. They apparently do not want to spend the epic amounts of ISK it will now take to kill a Skiff.

Plus, it's not very impressive killing a ship that can't fight back.

Indeed! Which is why I will be joining Hulkageddon (or whatever) next time it comes around, since it is (at least supposedly) a challange to kill the new mining barges! See, the buff was actually a stealth nerf to mining.

Edit: I also have Destroyers V and great blaster skills now.
