the real question is "CCP when can we have cloaked people disappear from local so people don't get free intel?"

How about INTERACT TFU (ITFU)


Why should someone in bed or at the store be allowed to have an impact on others who are in game?

cloaking should use fuel over time and cloaky ships have a fuel bay/fuel use reduction

my two cents

You let people who aren't actually playing the game have an impact on you? When has an AFK cloaked guy ever killed someone?

why should you care about someone afk?
why can you not adapt to cope with someone not blue in local?

Money at its root is a form of rationing. When the richest 85 people have as much wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion (50% of humanity) it is clear where the source of poverty is. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jan/20/trickle-down-economics-broken-promise-richest-85

In Odyssey 2.00 you will need to play a hacking mini game with every ship on overview to hold your cloak.

Not a bad suggestion. I was thinking maybe a countdown timer that allows you stay claoked for X amount of time and your allowed to reset it once it drops below a specific mark.

People in hi-sec dont really care. A person in null on the other hand is different. Just like with the ice miners needing interaction so to should the cloaker.

A cloaker in null can disrupt many aspect of the null players day to day business. They should not be able to do so if there in bed or at the key board.

I enjoy my cloakies and I have been known to park it a system while not at key board to lull people into false felling of security and later sneak in point and have some friends warp in.

I think coverts are very valuable for intell also. I just think it should require interaction to function like any other aspect of the game.

Did someone enter the system and say "I'm cloaking and leaving the computer for a few hours" ? If so, that was me.

Wait, you're saying you're saying that brought the entire system to its knees? really? I wasn't even there.

This I can agree with Make it have a charge like Heavy Water or Liquid Ozone. That way a person only has it for a limited time before the Cloak shuts off.

Cloaking LV 1 allows 15 min, 2: 30 min, 3: 45 min, 4: 1 hour, 5 : 1:15

Using the stander cloak

Covert Cloak the time is doubled you have to have lv 3 to use it so it would look like this.
3: 1:30, 4: 2:00, 5: 2:30

But to make it so you have to be anymore interactive to use ti then putting fuel in is just crazy and would add an unneeded window when trying to get intel or move.

and yes this is not  my main.
