I Need Help with Bubbles

#1 - 2017-05-20 16:27:38 UTC
I have 3 Ice Mining accounts that are located in a system that is in the middle of a medium traffic tube. From time to time someone will enter then warp straight to the Ice Belt. I have had too many close calls and I would like to actually get an Orca in there, but the Orca would be suicide. Sooo I trained into building small Bubbles. The videos I watched showed them being placed between gates, in effect, dragging people out of warp. I aligned from gate going to belt. Part way I dropped a bubble then 100km farther down the path I dropped another. The idea is to give me time to warp the ridiculously slow Orca. Testing it, I warped gate to Anomoly and went right to the belt. Back and forth it didn't pull me out of warp at all. What am I missing here?

bubbles only pull/stop a maximum of 500km from the desto, if it's inline with their warp path.

so, warp from the Gate to the Ore Anomaly at 100km, anchor your bubble, repeat for all gates in the system. you now have 100km Stop Bubbles that will catch non-nullified ships.

personally, i'd be using Large bubbles for this.

Ahhh. I see. Yes, I will build Large ones but only trained to small to try to throw up a quick speed bump. Thank you sir.

Also fit a 500mn MWD onto your Orca. When something comes into system hit warp to button and pulse mwd for a single cycle. When the cycle ends the Orca will be in warp.

Takes a bit more effort but if you Higgs rig the Orca and setup a safe on either side of the Anom you can stay aligned for ages and then align to the other safe when you are getting to far away.

Where are you mining that it is even an issue?

I currently mine in a pipe system in nulsec. Other than wormholes in system, the intel channel reports anyone unfriendly in the region.

I recently got attacked, called for help, and the aggressor was dispatched with extreme prejudice.
