Thanks for this.

Nothing new, but that's okay.

Are there any actual serious ones too or only those who restrict themselves to miner protection?

I consider this to be pointless rbh, but can't exclude them from information gathering.

Even for my taste that's more meta than I can handle. lol

Yes, there are serious ones, just as there are serious people doing pretty much anything in game. That's the nature of the sandbox. If something can be done, there will be people that focus entirely on doing that something.

How does one protect the world from gankers? Does one gank the gankers? Does this make you a ganker? Do you then have to gank yourself? My head hurts.

I never see him any more, but a guy called The Saint Tsero used to cause us some trouble in his Falcon. He was amazingly good at figuring out which miner we were going to gank even when using cloaky warpins. There were a couple of others, but since he was always around when they were, I assume they were his alts, but could be wrong. But if The Saint was around, ganking miners was going to be a lot tougher.

I think his secret was that he was just as dedicated as we are. He wasn't thinking about the isk/hr he was losing by sitting in his Falcon for hours. He didn't start watching youtube videos just because there wasn't any action for 10min. And above all, I think he did it because it was fun, not because he was really interested in helping miners.

Interesting.

Never heard of him.

Dedication is important. I think that's the whole point of the game,
if you want to play it for what it has to offer.


What strikes me a bit is that it seems that people think that the only
ganking that's happening is against miners. That's a bit odd.

I consider that to be the most irrelevant of them all.

I've been for some time now hunting gate campers with some friends.

They're all quite stupid and their spots easily predictable, but their rage is twice the regular carebear rage.

So I'm guessing anti-gankers are just looking for the same: Gankers tears, which are probably twice as tasty as carebears tears.

Sincerely, it amazes me how players took so long in this game to start an initiative against such easy prey

There's a guy in this character's corp who has been creating all manner of epic lulz by popping people with killrights on them, getting Tornado kills in scanning ships and the like.

Funnier than hell if you ask me.

Pretty sure every ganker, griefer, AWOXer and pirate in EVE right now is ashamed to be remotely associated with the OP.

In ... highsec?

If so, how do you operate?

Then why in hell do you even post,
if you can't stick to your own rule of thumb?

This guy has a knack for sniffing out hilarious kills. And man, you should hear his accent.

I forget his name, but this guy in Caldari space sits on highsec gates in a battle skiff and tackles any red blinkies he finds. Ive watched him point 2 catalysts at a time, tank them, and kill them.

Well... you have to kind of expect this, what with so many people ganking anymore. I've encountered a lot of "anti-gankers"... a lot of times it's people who are gankers themselves trying to discourage competition. When the gankers on my gate get too thick, I'll do the same. Float 200km off the gate in a cloaked hauler so I can ninja their kill... switch my Tornado to "kill yellow flashy" mode to pop their loot grabber. No matter what you do in eve, there's going to be someone out there who just wants to f*** up your game. There's always that push and pull, in everything. It's fine. For every tactic there's a counter tactic, and for every counter tactic there's yet another counter tactic. No sense crying about it. Just adapt and try to destroy your enemies.

Your post is a bit weird and sounds more like a personal issue than actually adressing my questions. :)

Anyhow, thanks for your contribution, Gogela.

Battle skiff.

Interesting! Huge tank, if I recall correctly?
Really nice!

Too bad you forgot his name. :D

I was traveling on ap in my cheetah from jita to hek and got pwned on gate for probe launcher. Sit in crapy staber (before it got drones) get back there and pwned trashers left and right for day or so.

gankers wore -10 so limited time to undock and warp to gank target and me being there with sensor boosted staber rly pissed em off but they started to cry like babies when I start hitting their loot scoop boat.


ah the tears, and ppl think carebears emo rage you should seen local chat that day.

also to log in pvp alt to pwn isbox ganker sure why not but I dont believe theres a service type group lurking around.

You choke behind a smile a fake behind the fear

Hahahaha I can imagine.

Yeah gankers tears are sometimes far worse than carebear tears.

Especially if it's noobs who believe they are somehow better,
but then manage to get themselves killed.
No offense to you intended.


Sometimes carebears and gankers are far more alike than one would imagine.

I don't think they had a formal name, but I remember this group who roamed jita in battle indys and ganked gankers while repping gank targets up and escorting them to safety.

Vigilante bears, best bears.
