Four Augoror Navy Issue Cruisers, a Devoter, and two Guardians warp into my mission site and start looting wrecks and going suspect.

Now with 100% less Troll.

What were you flying?

If this was in highsec, did you do the right thing and shoot even one of the Guardians? After all, would have been only a limited engagement with that one ship and only one other ship's reps to shoot through.

So a bunch of mates decided to work together to loot your mission.

Where were your mates to help you kill them?

Yeah, I know that flipping bears isn't exactly considered "1337 pvp",
And I'm not normally one to say this
BUT
In this case I think I've earned it

Did anything happen ? Shocked

EVE online players are like these two "chihuahua's" , ya never can tell what will happen next.P

EVEBoard ...Just over 60million skill points, each skill was chosen for a reason. I closed my eyes & clicked another skill to train... "BINGO...!!!" ... "This time i got something usefull"

Playing Eve solo is hard. It seems unfair, one guy vs. a blob. But it's not really. Solo player can't win vs. a blob, but a solo player can stay heads up, be alert, and avoid (or ready to escape) blob situations. It's a lot like RL-- if you got cornered in an ally by a gang, who's fault is it? The gang who caught you, you because you got cornered, or you because you didn't bring your own bigger gang? Eve pvp is like that-- it's not about on the spot skill, it's about planning for situations and choosing or not choosing to get into them.
If you fly solo, you got to think like Outlaw Josey Wales. Assume that you're in the woods mostly, you're the bandit, not them, and roving gangs will shoot you and your mule up good if you let them. It's hella fun, but casually flying around in fleet gangs and doing shoot 'em ups is more fun over time, I'd say. Smile

Is there a punchline to this joke?


Whatever the case, that's some poorly done suspect baiting.

I once devised a way to ensure no level 4 mission ever got intruded upon and there is no magic to it. In fact it relies on the ignorance of the other players and it worked 100 percent of the time so far.

exactly, it wasn't very subtle as per the title. I suppose this would be a good time to say something like "cool story bro"
