Anything can be tanked, but you can make enough of a deterrent to fight off all but the most determined ganker.

Sorry, no such thing as 'safe', and you won't bait me into that trap.

The only thing you can do is make it harder for someone to gank you. And that's enough.

Of course a group can do it.

The goal of tanking a ship is to make it impractical for a ganker or group of gankers to gank you. Your job is to make it so a ganker has to invest more money than he stands to gain by attacking you. This creates a deterrent.

A tank will fight off the solo Catalyst, and maybe even two. Beyond that, there's no point financially speaking to attempt a gank.

Fit a tank.

Don't carry bulk expensive items, do it in multiple trips.

Basically, fly smart, and think outside the box.

I and my 600 friends once ganked a nyx in 2 shots. Deal with it.

Hey ccp you need to do something about these whiners whining about getting ganked in general discussion, its taking away the more sophisticated trolling .
general discussion is suppose to be a place where we post about sunglasses raytracing and ccp/goon/nwo/illuminati conspiracies and not a forum where we have to listen to miners whine. No i understand if we were in crime & punishment yea then by all means post away but crying us general discussion is absolutely ludicris. I have watched so many people quit this game because of it. Not to mention the threads locked for spam. I have had enough. if i see one more thread about griefing i will unsub my accounts, that will be 30,000 dollars usd x 12 months out of the year not going to your bank account. so please deal with these posters. ty.



you people really are easy marks.. this guy is an obvious troll.

Do you also expect your Hulk to empty an entire region in a single mining cycle?

Hi, my name is Phill. I've been playing this amazing game EVE Online for over a year now.

If I'm not online, I'm doing one of three things: reading A Song of Ice and Fire, playing Call of Duty, or listening to dubstep!

How it is impractical? If they want to gank you there's nothing you can do about it.

1+ mil EHP Damnation/Proteus can be alpha'd in few seconds. What you think Hulk pilot can do to avoid getting ganked?

Because it costs more than it is worth.

You're obviously trolling, but I'm gonna continue going on anyway.

Yes, with enough firepower, anything can be ganked. But is ganking a Hulk with a handful of Catalysts or a couple of Tornadoes really worth it? The gankers in that situation stand to lose much more than they would gain.

Of course, there are the few who would gank anyway, since they like to do it. But your average ganker is in it because they enjoy it, it is easy, and they stand to make some money. Take away the second and third incentives, and you'll find that most gankers will avoid attacking your ships.

Yep. You ought to get rid of those people who attack Hulks in high-sec.

Why waste 4-5 ships on a single target when you can kill 4-5 and make a profit?

If it isn't, then it's even easier to be an impractical target.

It's still a loss, which is a whole lot less than a gain. This makes you an impractical and not worth-while target.

As a miner myself I must say that the gank-fest has reinvigorated the game for me...

I got ganked, several times, AFKing in Hulks...

So I went away...
looked at Dot-Lan... found a nice dead end system with few ship kills...
PYFA'd up a Hulk with 20K EHP to use when things are quiet...
bought a few Covetors to use for max yield during busy times in local...
Actively fly my ship during mining activities... keeping an eye on local/dscan... Staying aligned and moving as much as possible...
Explored some grav sites for mining...


Its not as fun as PVP which I'm now intent on doing as I'll be moving to Lowsec soon...
But its a lot better than the mindless AFK crap I was doing...


Getting blown up is not being griefed... Its a gentle reminder that your doing something wrong...

There is no such thing as a fair fight...

If your fighting fair you have automatically put yourself at a disadvantage.
