I believe the correct term is "blapped" or "alpha'd."

Basically: You're in a shuttle. Does it really seem so impossible to get instagibbed by literally anything else in the game?

How did you dock to 0? By warping to the station on your Overview?

(because that's not warping to 0)

Sensor boosted ship with high alpha weapons (artillery) can one-shot low EHP ships like shuttles easily, with locking times as low as one second, with pre-loaded guns the damage is inflicted immediately after acquiring target lock.

If you were not a suspect or war target, it was most likely a cheap insta-Trasher.

Ahahaha edit, why did you have 11 PLEXes in your shuttle :DDDD

And yes, it was a Trasher.

Right. Ping issues. The dock is not immediate as you still have to give the dock command after leaving warp. Thus, with unfortunate server ticks and delay from ping, a attentive ganker with one tick lock got you targeted and blapped before the server finally got your dock command, only to realise, the ship it was supposed to be docking is currently generating a wreck.

Someone knew you were coming and worth the shot. Check your friends.

You need to understand that the only way to guarantee you will be inside the 0KM 'bubble' of a station is to make a bookmark at 0KM and in future warp to that bookmark instead of warping to the station via overview.

When you warp directly to a station sometimes you will be dropped 1-2K off the station and the time it takes you to coast that 1-2K is enough time for any sensor boosted ship to lock and fire 1-2 volleys.

If you already have such a bookmark you should be clicking the dock button on selected item window before you even exit warp. Aside from this connectivity issues can cause such problems too.

Smart bombs are also a thing. But that's a story for another time.

Ping pong, nope

You don't always land in docking range of stations from certain directions without an instadock bookmark, and can spend several seconds slowboating to docking range. See above.

I think she is saying she made a bookmark at 0, so Abrazzar is right..

Edit: I'll mention that every now and then I've seen a few seconds go by even after warping to zero and mashing dock while coming in from the same direction that's given me an instadock before.

It's possible because of what you had in your cargo. If there's will there's a way. Don't give them the will in something as simple as a shuttle.

Not moving them would be smart.

Don't fly around with PLEX in your cargo. NEVER.

Doesn't matter, what you fly. Orca, Dominix, etc... With 11 PLEX in cargo, it will get ganked.

CovOps and always cloak. Don't tell anyone where you're going, what you're carrying and what you're flying until you are at your destination. Also fit a buffer on the CovOps so you can take a volley from a Trasher.

How do you have enough ISK to play PLEX games and yet lack the knowledge of how to move them safely?
