they only have so many minerals and isk, they will get bored and slip up eventually, once ice becomes worth mining people who normally wouldnt mine it will try to mine it, thus goons will have to throw more ships away. it is impossible for a group of people to continue to lock out all the systems with ice.
the reward is getting higher for mining ice, eventually the tipping point will happen where ice miners from all over Eve will mine just gallente ice and try to get rich XD


Reading these theories miners put forward about how we will stop the ganking of mining vessels actually makes ratting seem less tedious.

Please miners, keep posting these fantasy stories. I need a good laugh now and again...

Ratting in a Dominix is the only way to rat, that way you can read the forums while the game runs itself.

Who cares what they do in EVE .... Pirate If you play a FPS game and they all use BIGGG weapons, do you cry about it or just get a bigger gun with a bigger group. Its part of the GAME...yes its a game. Even for EVE addicts with white hair.

Looks like it's time for me to build a few more 'rax hulls and go join the shenanigans.

Ohhh really ? Are you seriously going to challenge us on such a thing ?

The last time someone told us that the greater bob community is too big to fail....You know what happened. And recently, the NC was too big to fail aswell. They go crushed beneath the Eastern Vodka-driven, Bear, who is currently dual-wielding RPGs at this very moment in Stain (Or some region in the south).

I can single-handly take out your Mackinaw with my finest alphasteed. You know, it's called a Tempest. With Artilleries.

Also, despite you saying we don't have much toons with skills to use those, I'm fairly certain we have more than enough dudes for the job, since our main fleet doctrine revolves around swarming a system with 500 Maelstroms with artilleries in order to instapop those pesky tengus/AHACS/Abbadons and whatnot. So believe it, the harder you make it for use to take you down, the better we will feel when we bring 3/4 brutixes to take out your finely tuned plan.

Reps ? We will bump your repping ships out of the way if they are battleships. If they are orbiting logistics,then we will just bump your ship and watch you warp out and warp back in cause you're out of mining range. Or out of range for dropping ice in your mate's orca.

Jams ? Right, doesn't work when you went boom in one single volley.

Suicide ganking us ? Damnit I would pay to see that you know ?

Pretty much all.

I'm surprised CCP doesn't actually have a system where if empire X sees an increase in deaths in Y system then it adds additional police for longer periods during times when said high rate of deaths occur.

I mean if I were the Gallente government, tasked with defending those in my territory, that's what I'd do. So it wouldn't really be appeasing the miners by making it harder to gank miners, it would be a natural response to a threat in their territory. Heck they should be able to setup temporarily stations in hard hit location, basically declaring martial law in systems.

if you find goons mining in goonswarm space you could probably talk other goons into killing them

uugh mining



I can vouch for that, I was bored one day so I thought I would hit up the belts in VFK in my hulk.

Wow that was a bad idea, next thing I knew, I was surrounded by a swarm of rifters.

I hit the Alt, Shift, & Q buttons all at once, the Goons all disappeared.

I went back to mining in my hulk until I noticed Headerman in local. I docked up real fast.

In the 5 or 6 years playing this game, off and on, I have never seen a sorrier excuse of an alliance than I have now.
Even BOB was not as ignorant as you trying to pretend your a PVP alliance who's only skill is hitting miners that can not hit back.

Been considering playing the game again. Might still do so, Go back to making the ships every one will lose.
