Countering AFK Clockers

I hear that CCP whines about dropping a billion cans on the gate to keep cloakies moving thru system decloaked.

Any confirmation of that crap?


Also there needs to be a counter to the AFK cloakie..

Hot droppers are cool, no issue there.

I do have issue with the asshats that take 5+ alts and and afk camp entire constellations for weeks.

I want a fight, I dont want to sit around flying in pvp ship under the threat of combat, when these "uber pee vee pee"'ers wont engage me unless I'm not in in ANY pvp ship...

Mmmm tears.

Please provide a more comprehensive list of things that you are okay with, and things that you would like to see removed. After all, you are a paying customer and you should get everything you ask for. I'm very concerned that some aspects of the game may upset you.

Damn, this clocking problem must be serious... its about time someone did something... its fairly widespread, so its not like its a minute problem.

Just hit snooze for a while and wait for the problem to be fixed? Watch the gates and wait for them?

Nah, I'm out, I got nothin' else...



Edit: gotta hand it to these clockers, though, they're efficient.

Should be something like if your afk and cloaked for 3hrs+ you should have a random chance to de-cloak.

AFK cloak does not help create combat.

Yayy!

Havent had an AFK cloaking whinethread in a week or so.

And it's one of the mutant subtypes, too. A ratting nullbear terrified of unknown faces in local trying to spin themselves as a "frustrated pvper" just looking for fights.

0 kills and 5 losses on your killboard. Makes me think those evil cloakers have the perfect tactic for dealing with you ^_^

His point is: Why start a new whine post when there are already so many to whine in?

If you really are looking for a fight (I also call BS on this) go to FW space, I never have a problem finding a fight there.

This guy is Grade A Dedicated material guys - a frustrated carebear on a mission. Not from an agent, with which he can use eve-survival, but from a higher power. Himself. Will he write his own wikia on the experiences for more to follow? We'll find out.

Just to continue to clarify.

Hot dropping - works great, no problem.

Cloaking - works great!



AFK Cloaking - for weeks... is broken...

At one time the average eve player was a hard nut who is both resourceful and intelligent enough to actually take problem and solve it without all the whining and bitching to CCP to wipe their arses and blow their noses.

Sometime I just hang my head...

That is the Way, the Tao.

Balance is everything.

You must make your corp and alliance mates proud, OP. Once more for the particularly thick and dense portions of the playerbase:

If they are AFK, they can't ******* hurt you.
