Just blow them up, I do, before they can make it to the kill I shoot it or blue it, most of those skins are dull anyway.

This is the fun part. I like to warp in at the end and try to get the credit for the final kill. So far I haven't been terribly successful in getting that loot jacker. However, 2 caracals with polarized missile launchers came in to gank a tornado with a high end fit and I did get the KMs on that. There's a lot of opportunity here. Stop playing the game and start playing the players would be my advice.

Well, those sites look for me more like a spare change now.

I have done a Guristas Hallucinogen Supply Waypoint and there dropped a Gila blueprint and B type pithum invulnerability field. Just Omega things.

Guide on how i play these sites without getting disturbed by thieves:

- I do not fly these sites, i just go mining and then i buy all the skins and as much booster as i want at the end of the event because the prices are low. I have no joy beeing the thief and no joy to work for thiefs, so why doing it? Luckly Eve give us mutiple options.

You are fundamentally and severely misunderstanding what EVE is as a game.

It wouldnt be EVE if the loot could NOT be stolen.

There are atleast a dozen things you can do to either prevent the theft or react to it.

Well I had a plan. To go at it slightly differently and a bit of a white knight but an evil bastard one.


Take your veteran T3, preferably with a cloak, find the names of people complaining in local and ask them through pms for player name and ship type, then adjust your own ship accordingly. You know that this person will lose sites so ask them to team up with you. Let them run the content and sit cloaked right by the gate ready to pounce on the unsuspecting. The thief rolls in ready to steal at a moments notice, u see ship and probable fit, wait, then when your new bro best bud says last spawn you activate gate and warp in knowing the thief will likely steal said loot either way. And if you time it right you simply land, scram and go to town on the thief.

I like picking on the people that pick on people for some reason. Oh and the salt is WAAAAY better when they are "leet" pvpers and you are a scrub "minah!!"

No finer or juicier salt in the world!!Twisted


There are no gates, the sites are a single area already spawned, chances are the person stealing the loot will be in a small ship and will warp away before your decloak lock timer expires unless you plan on warping in to the site at which point you've got a 20km burn to your target assuming they don't MWD away or again are in a frig and have already left the site :P

My quotas with a blaster Gnosis I gimped a bit with a combat scanner in order to be able to scan down (my) lost drones:

- 70 Sites run
- Got 22 skill injectors
- Only got contested around 10 times, most players warp off when they see the side is allready run.
- Only lost the loot to other players 3 times.
- Two times yellow flashing pilots warped in to provoke a fight.

Yes, I came of ahead most of the time in a simple Gnosis. The last ship allways warps in to almost the same position relative to the warp ins of the waves before. The trick is to sit there, log fast with a script running and blast away at 2000m. I only lost the kill to a Brutix that had better timing, a Domi that bumped me out of perfect range and a pair of perfectily synchronized piloted machariels (overkill much?). I think the event is fine as it is.

Everyone has been wonderfully polite these last 3 days. Probably a result of the fall in accelerator prices and people now wondering what to do with their skins.


Finally! Thank you!

The Accelerator price dropped. The skins are dirt cheap. There was a time when PLEX dropping was something wow, now... I'd rather do a 1/10 and pray for some lucky drops... I jet canned 6 skins yesterday since I already had them and selling them all would've prolly made up 2 mil :)) Bounty is also meh... prolly people lost interest in the site already :D

I actually would be willing to do something if I wasn't going to get worked by Concord for doing it.

Carebear apologists usually ensure us in their whine posts that ganking is totally easy, has no consequences and has zero costs. So not sure what is holding you back? Safety to red and pull that trigger!

EDIT: now with more carebear

Ha! Speak of the devil. Did you get the drop from that Tornado? I didn't even know what was going on until I left the system.

I came across a newer player who was using an Omen to run these sites. I warped in with my Tengu, last wave was wrapping up and I killed the boss npc for the site. Felt bad and dropped the skin that dropped and added a drone booster, marked the container as blue and said have fun and went on my way.

That will only happen with new bros though, anyone else can screw themselves =D

The site does not belong to you, the loot is not your property, in EVE you only own something you can prevent from being taken by others, this applies to everything: territory, resources, your ship, your loot, your wrecks, your wormhole, your citadel, the cargo that you haul and so on. This is all intended. You build your dreams and others are there to wreck your dreams. Welcome to EVE.

As for stealing stuff, check my bio. Stealing the loot is all too easy and super fun, this time I don't even bother completing the sites the regular way at all as was in case of the Gala event as the rewards this time are unimpressive.

The strange thing is most people don't even prelock you and those who do are not fit properly to prevent you from escaping. This is all carelessness. If you don't care to protect what you wish to be yours or even claim is yours then you do it wrong.

I am one of those who will link in local what I've stolen especially if it involves the only useful event item the training accelerator, though I have so many of those as well that I already have the remaining time from the event covered by them and same goes for my corp mates, I gift the stolen stuff to my corp but even they don't need most of it.

Those who are curious I do this for one thing only, the excitement and adrenaline which is practically the same, not for ISK, not even for the loot, just for the fun of it. *giggles*

A very few of my victims take it as they should, as a game and it is good to see such people, had some nice conversations with such people of exchange of a few messages, great people they are, they make EVE great, the rest get angry and all upset for no reason because of their space pixels were taken away and blame others for their own failures. There are several approaches to preventing your loot being taken, no I will not do your homework for you, anyone can figure these out so you can't even claim you have no chance at all.

But let me give you a hint because I feel generous: You can look me up on zkill and even see my fit, the less than 1% of the cases when I was stopped, the rest were too careless to stop me, it can be done with ease and though it is not shown exactly you still can figure out the two different approaches, let me help, each person used a different one, the rest is easy to recognize. There are other methods as well however so your options are quite wide in protecting your stuff, thus, you have no excuse if you don't.

did the same in HS. Actually I stole the site from the same guy 5 times and felt bad for him, so when a booster was dropped I just didnt pick the loot and marked it blue, then told in local "take it's blue"

Also, he said gg the first time I ninja'd him and the time I ninja'd with booster so I thought, a good mind like that must be rewarded.

People who call me an *******, well I just tell them "hate the game not the gamers".
