Would appear Goonswarm is back to manipulating the Oxygen Isotope market (good on them, by the way.) Mackinaw killmails are rolling in. Volume the last two days has been nearly triple the norm. And prices are 1.5x higher than they were.

Prepare. Stockpile. Invest.

Will the prices head upwards to 1400 ISK per unit, as they did last interdiction?

I'm not sure exactly how that works ... but I assume you still have to mine the stuff before turning them into fuel blocks.

Correct. It was bound to swing up anyway due to the all time low. Though some exploding ships likely helped spread some panic.

NOT POSSIBLE!!!

Ganking CAN'T be done in Eve anymore.

Mackinaws are INVULNERABLE.

This.

After all the whinage and crying that suiciding miners is no longer profitable I find it hard to believe that miners are being suicided to increase... profits.

English translation, people will afk mine ice in multiboxed Procurors.

The truth is that even if they did, they wouldn't fit tanks, they would fit for yield/cargo and would die to a suicide gank, not to mention that the ore hold is too small to make it really viable.

36 minutes for 12 blocks of ice is a sizeable amount of time invested for the return even in a cheap barge like a Procuror.

ICE procuror fits can AFK for about 30 minutes & have ~5X the eHP... will be interesting if they start popping up or if cheap retiervers replace the MACs in the ice fields

I'm being lazy today, so not gonna go dig up yer posts. But I'm pretty sure you were one of the ones claiming that you could no longer profit from suiciding miners. Let me know if you disagree so I can start digging a bit Blink.

So ganking Macks IS possible AND it's able to be done PROFITABLY.

I feel much better now. I was positive the horrendous angst in multiple topics, the tears, the concerns, the outrage, the rants about those stupid, stupid miners and those poor, poor gankers was all TRUE.

Phew.

Ok, thx. Resuming life as I know it.

Not unless you buy up a crap tonne of Oxytopes, at the all-time low, then start attacking to force the price upwards. Profit!

Attacking a Mack isn't profitable.

What's profitable is buying up all the supplies at the all-time low, and then attacking to force the price upwards ... then sell those stocks.
