While i recognize that afk camping is a part of the game, we have instances where a someone plants himself for weeks in a system and disrupts everyone's life in it.

Sometimes it is done for stategic reasons, sometimes for spying the activity, but sometimes also a bitter frenemy decides to make the sole goal of his game life to mess with everybody else.

Can CCP create a module where the.... "defender" emits an "EMP pulse" decloaking any afk camper in system? The EMP would have restrictions (e.g. once a day or something), but then the camper would have to be actually watching his monitor in order to cloak again.

afk cloakers never hurt anyone ever.

why would CCP put forth the effort to make a thing that protects you from something that can't hurt you?

Come hell or high water, this sick world will know I was here.

You just move next door and rat or mine. The cloaky has to follow you and risk being decloaked on the gate, or wind up camping nothing.

Lots of other solutions to a cloaky that will depend on your available resources, but not worth reiterating them because they are on the mega thread about this subject, for which this thread will be closed for.

You shouldn't have to feel threatened by some picture in the local window.

They should immediately remove the local from all those systems so people wont have to feel anxious anymore about looking at a picture.

It obviously has worked for wormhole space, they never complain about this.

There is a AFK cloaking thread in the features and ideas section, where it is trolled to death with people saying the same sort of thing as you had in this reply.

Something will be done at some point, likely to be an uncloaking wave of some sort which will be painful for anyone AFK, if active all they have to do is cloak up again.

I would advise going to the AFK thread, posting what you think and then not going back to read any of the responses, wait for a couple of pages then post again, and don't read the responses. Or you could block the posts of all those people which I have ignored, because their posting was in the main blocked due to their posting in that thread.

When the going gets tough the Gankers get their CSM rep to change mechanics in their favour.
