So I thought I would be a smartass and deploy two of them 10km apart in my mission.

after finishing my mission I came back 1 hour later and there it was...

Mobile Tractor Unit Tennis.. one wreck and it was being pulled to the Mobile Tractor Unit then pulled back by the other one and so forth....

soon learnt that was not a good idea,... now I place them 130km apart if I gotta.

and its good to know that I have 48 hours to collect my stuff.. assuming someone aint scanned it down and killed it then looted..

be good everyone and have fun lol

New griefing tactic detected: Drop into someone's mission space and deploy MTUs to counter their MTUs.
Comedy!

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Maybe you could put them 150km apart so you can warp between them.

You can not warp there, because natural phenomena are disrupting your warp.

Classic move, and hilarious, I've done it myself for the laugh of it.

You drop 2 MTUs when you mission? Man, that's rough. What kind of mission boat you running with and when do you run?




Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Of course for ultimate salvaging sillyness you could always deploy multiple MTUs from your Noctis :D

Ive not tried it, but Ive been wondering about 10 MTUs and 10 wrecks. CCP even mentioned this when they introduced the MTU, something about "wreck kinetic art".

Also, dropping a MTU in someone's mission does nothing. It will not tractor a yellow wreck.

Damn. Would've been hilarious.

Oh, well... Back to swiping mission loot.
