Avoiding Faction Cops

A theoretical question: would it be possible to fly a Wreathe industrial ship in and out of a system where you are hunted by the faction police? I'm talking about quick in and out docking/undocking.

To put it in another way, if you were to suddenly become hunted by the faction police in your home system, how would you relocate your ships in a lower security system?

There is enough delay that if you warp directly from place to place and never hang around in one spot you can easily evade facpo in small ships. With something like an industrial ship you are pushing your luck though. It might be possible if you fit to align quickly, but don't quote me on that.

If I had a bunch of ships & stuff to move and was worried about facpo I would create courier contracts, to have someone else move it. Probably with Red Frog Freight. The more I play this game, the more I love courier contracts - hauling your own stuff around is for chumps. Alternately, if your ships aren't worth the price of a courier contract, sell them and buy new ones when you get where you are going.

Anyone with a minimal amount of reading will know exactly what will lower their standings to the point they could face being chased by faction police so plan for it. No I am not saying you should not do these things, what I am saying is if you have read anything at all then you know what will lower your standings so be smart and move your stuff BEFORE you go out and trash your standings.

If it is to late and your standings are already trashed then you still have options.

For those with Omega accounts use one of your three character slots for a hauling / general purpose character that never does anything that may trash standings that way you always have the ability to move anything you want, where ever you want it to be.

Alpha clone you can still do the same thing only it requires a separate account.

You can always contract your stuff to have it moved out of an area you can no longer freely go into.

Training the social skill called diplomacy can help here as well since it's affect is to raise your standings with the various NPC.
Watch this one though some things in EvE are based on your actually standings(no skills applied) while others use standings adjusted by skills.

I agree with Syeed, if you are careful and plan you movements to use the smallest (fastest to align) ship possible so you have no or minimal delays the faction police should not be an issue you cannot deal with. Just remember you are wanted, mess up and they will get you if they can so just be prepared.

I just haul highsec stuff in my alt, this char has been negative for years.
The slowest thing I brought through highsec was a procurer with no align mods, occasionally they were just barely able to lock me but that was about it. (They web first allowing you to get into warp faster, then scram you for some reason).

"Your security status has been lowered." - Hell yeah it was!
