Today i found a raven in a wormhole, tackled it. He had setup a mobile depot and refit to warp core stabs to escape (very clever). I cant imagine this was its primary purpose but its seems like it could be abused. Solo is hard enough without have to bring 3 faction scrams to make sure you can catch PVE BS. I think that maybe you should not be able to refit if you have an agression timmer. Am I the only one who thinks this is a silly game mechanic or am i way off? Thanks

Make friends. Work together.

EVE is a game about spaceships and there's an enormous amount of work to do on the in-space gameplay before players (or developers) are ready to sacrifice it for a totally new type of gameplay - CCP Rise

That's a really good idea. Thanks for the tip!

Reinforce the depot + kill raven = no need to QQ on forums about it.

Well done CCP!

OP: why didn't you pull out and fit the scrams from your depot?

Any colour you like.

Ah, I see how it works. Carebares complain about PvPers ruining their game and the whole forum goes into turbojerk mode and pounces on them, but when a PvPer complains that they got outwitted by a carebare then everyone sends them flowers of condolence?

"I expect to kill everything solo" whine thread of the day.

The mobile depot nicely opposes the warp speed changes on balance.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

I think you replied to the wrong thead. So far he's gotten mostly abuse for pointing out how stupid the new structures are.

You could have:


  1. Brought friends
  2. Brought a HIC
  3. Bumped him out of alignment
  4. Brought a Interdictor
  5. Fit more/better scrams


Instead you come to the forum and whine about someone being better at Eve than you are. HTFU and learn to play.

It has no primary purpose.
It's a tool for players to use to come up with new ways of approaching the various problems they face in the game.

Maybe you shouldn't have attacked him in a place where he was free to refit to match your moves, hmm…?

Perhaps a visit to the optometrist if what you're seeing in this thread is "condolences"?

On the whole, I'm more worried about the passive effect of local grids getting fouled up because of all these "huts" being set up.

I don't think they should be deployable/anchorable any closer than 1,000 KM from an npc station and having them banned from 1.0, 0.9 and 0.8, just like Giant Secure Cans, isn't a bad idea either.

After all the effort over the years to reduce lag... Roll
