personally I don't care what CCP does with regard to concord.. but lore demands concord do something. Ganking robs concord. Concord is a powerful entity that would angrily respond.. not for the sake of miners but for their own sake. If concord saw that taking out the gank ships did not stop the activity they would step up counter actions in some other way.



It's not CONCORD's purpose to stop anything. They punish, they don't protect.

Why tank your Hulk and sacrifice yield when you can just mine aligned and be nearly 100% safe while getting full yield?

due to the announced rebalances for mining ships in general this has basicly become a moot point :)

so can this thread be locked now? :)

Indeed! The upcoming change to mining ship "roles" will solve a lot of these problems. I'm looking forward to a BS or BC equivalent tank on a Procurer/Skiff. Sure, the ore hold won't be much, but it'll take a small fleet of gank-fit destroyers to take it out. As it is, the Procurer is useless, and the Retriever/Covetor are paper-thin. It'll be nice to have options. Though to be honest, I don't mine all that often.

Actually I know 100% what it means. It means not staying still like a moron.


You make about 4 BMs off grid surrounding your mining sight. Then you sorta-circle your roids and mine at 75% speed. You are nearly invincible if you bother to put in a little work.
