Hello,

An alt of mine was just bumped outside HEK in an orca. If i hadnt been paying attention i would have been outside dock range soon enough and most likely popped by wartargets. This orca even had Reinforced Bulkheads.

Anyway. It seems that alot of miners are having an issue with bumping, but i think its a viable tactic. If i hadnt payed attention then with my orca i probably would have lost it. There were no WT's around at the time, but they would have shown up, webbed and scrammed me the second they see im outside dock range. Anyway, kudos to them for that, these kinds of tactics only make EVE a more interesting place. Anyway. There should be a way to defend against this IMO, some sort of anchor.

Do you actually believe there shouldnt be a way to defend against it? A module, or a skill of some sort, that at least reduces the speed at which you get bumped away

There are plenty of ways to defend against bumping... You do realize bumping has been around for about 9 years now... Smile

How can you defend against it?

I'm sorry but do you know that capitals do this in nullsec when people start bumping through POS shields?

What i had in mind was a module that would reduce your vulnerability to bumping. Its not going to be the end of bumping

You mean a module that would increase your mass? Like an armor plate of some sort? Or perhaps one that would distort space and increase your mass through a micro-sized warp bubble?

Something that increases mass is not going to work as the bumpers could just do it as well

Put it in a POS orbittimg the tower instead of sitting outside station.

Miners in other parts of space have bigger problems than this.

I dont care how its done, but you should have the option of sacrificing tank or whatever else and put a module that reduces your vulnerabilty to bumping

you can do that...but you can INCREASE YOUR TANK AT THE SAME TIME!

Bump ALL the Orcas!

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

You know, I think I need to get in on this miner tear faucet.
I'm in HS atm so I think I'm gonna go buy a Mach and have some fun.

James, any preference on systems where you need me?

Glad you asked! We're hanging out in Tolle and the neighboring ice field systems at the moment. Smile

If you're relying on the Grandmaster of Bump to teach you how to avoid bumps, you may as well surrender and join the New Order now. Smile

There is this one solution unfortunately CCP still didn't implent it, I suggest that you suggestto them that they make a cruiser/BC sized ship that can fit battleship guns, then buy the Minmatar version because those have the highest alphaand fit it 1400mm Artillerys and obliterate your target, though keep in mind that you might want to bring more of those so you can 1 shot your victim.

PS: tell CCP to do it soon.
