Will someone at CCP please allow miners defend (destroy) the bumpers ship without Concord intervention. As it is now all miners hands are tied and MUST submit to their extorsion tactics with no means of defense.


P.S. If this should be posted elsewhere please let me know...thanks

You can defend against anyone in roughly 80% of the universe. It is your fault for staying in the part that does not allow you to do so.

They wouldn't/ couldn't do anything about the fruity bump mechanic when POS bowling for caps was the fad, they won't/can't do anything for a guy in a Mackinaw.

Just learn to bump the bumper. Nothing to fix here.

Remove standings and insurance.

Orbit with an MWD, use range extension systems for your beam. That or go to another system and enjoy peaceful mining.

The bumpers can't do anything, they're petty. Just move and continue afk-mining blissfully :)

The easiest change for CCP to make is to increase the "drag" term in the motion of ships for ships moving faster than their top speed. That way ships can still be bumped, but they slow down much faster and do not go as far.

Anyone tried a speed tanked Skiff?

CCP, Buff bumping. I want dedicated bumping ship with 1 high slot for Tear Harvester II, and low slot for Tear Harvester Upgrade II.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

That actually does not work. Barges do not have the mass or speed to effectively counter bump a bumping ship.

Why should he have to pay a fee for a resource center that does not belong to this group?

Because that group has the ability and desire to disrupt that resource center. I don't make a thread on EVE-O whenever a roaming gang comes through my ratting system and disrupts my resource center, I adapt and DEAL WITH IT.




Or you can just pay 10m isk and be done with it!

There is already a method in place to defend your ship against people bumping you.

Use your Warp Drive to "warp" to a Stargate, then use the Stargate to Jump to a different system where people aren't/can't bump you.

Don't care. Let them mine in high sec. James is an undesirable deserving of ban for interrupting paying customers' game play.
