Here we see the providence in its natural habitat in Jita together with its prime enemey - the gankers.

The high concentration of gankers made the providence shed its skin in pure anxiety.
Question is - will the providence soon be extinct?

I hope not. It's the only freighter that doesn't offend my eyes.

This screenshot is actually extreme tidi right after the gank that spawned the wreck model, but didn't remove the original freighter model that kept moving although it was long dead.

The Providence always looks more heavily armored than it should. To me it looks more like a combat vessel than the Archon does.

I wish I had trained for a Providence... would be worth every ISK to fly one with legion links and HG slaves into JIta.

On that day, all the courageous freighter pilots flew with "a tank of honor" in their cargo hold.
To bad that sometimes it took more than that to save the ship.

I watched the Perimeter gate for quite a long time, and saw several freighters bumped and allowed to escape (bumping towards stations, and / or without aggressing). I don't understand that strategy (makes more sense in lowsec, not so much in hisec).

There was a bait Providence though that worked well. Too well if you include when the Goons were beaten to the smartbomb punch by others, and instead destroying a lot of Goons. Saw both happen twice while I was watching.

I left Jita, as it really was too boring with more bumping-and-let-escape going on than I was expecting.

Freighters are like reptiles.. they shed their old skin when they grow.
Your picture proves that Burn Jita made the freighters stronger, not weaker.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

Concord spawning and warping triggering tidi is a beautiful thing. I wonder how much it boned market bots.
