Your sitting up a NULL Drag-bubble camp and can only bring 3 ships/players.

What 3 ships, fittings and why?

All automated intel should be removed from the game including Instant local/jumps/kills/cynos for all systems/regions.Eve should report nothing like this to the client/3rd party software.Intel should not be force fed to players. Player skill and iniative should be the sources of intel.

Without knowing the region, or who to expect, I would say a generic Sabre, Falcon, DPS. Lets say a Blaster Talos for the DPS. All standard fits.

Sabre - Bubble small ships/pods so nothing gets away, satisfactory light tackle, decent dps against small ships, lack of survivability covered by falcon.
Falcon - Obvious
Talos - Great dps, good ability to GTFO if you get baited, weak tank covered by Falcon.

Your not gonna win any pitched battles, but in most areas anyone willing to fight will bring overwhelming force to such an extent that a skirmish comp doesn't really make sense. You gank anything solo, maybe a pair of frigs, and GTFO if it looks like more.

HIC is a sitting duck for a hotdrop, also could have trouble killing properly fit frigs in that comp.

Tornado fitted for alpha
Buzzard fitted with remote sebo and combat scanner
OGB Loki

With only three ships odds of a good gang fight is low. You will either get dropped or blobbed. And since its a static bubble camp instant lock with alpha enough to crush cruisers is about the best you can hope for.

Not to mention that your primary big km targets are those heads full of expensive implants.

Some will say the buz is a wasted space, and I admit it could be done by others, I like being able to get to people's perch points with it while it orbits giving sebo.

1 sabre and 2 scout alts spread over 4 gate pipe systems


1 Smarty phanter and 2 scouts


2 alpha cloak rsb td sb phanter and 1 tripple faction web paint rsb armour tank instalocking rapier

If relativity equals time plus momentum, what equals relativity, if the momentum is minus to the time?

I play in a very quiet eve-time so am often solo-camping and / or solo roaming.

I have difficulty actively playing more than two characters at once, so my solo bubble camp comprises two active ships and one or two more ‘background’ characters:
1. Fast locking huginn with 3 faction webs;
2. T2-sentry Gila with a long-range point;
3. Cloaky scout falcon, rainbow jammer fit; and sometimes
4. Skirmish booster, implanted loki sitting in a POS if I am camping rather than roaming.

The booster is just there and not really doing anything, so is on a minimised background window. The falcon is 95% cloaky-eyes but very occasionally joins the fray when I bite off more than I can chew. The huginn webs from a long way away, especially if the booster loki is active, and stops them getting anywhere fast while the gila either pings them with sentries or swaps to another drone type.

This combo does not have the instablap alpha/DPS of those seboed monsters, and on a gate camp half the fast ships manage to burn back and escape. My combo works nicely on cruisers and above, and with some of the special bubble setups I use.

I guess I am almost a 'vet' by now. Hopefully not too bitter and managing to help more than I hinder. I build and sell many things, including large collections of bookmarks.

If you are anchoring a bubble then bring an interceptor, a rapier and dps. Reasoning: inty or assfrig for uncloaking and initial tackle (scram). Rapier to avoid small stuff running and dps for obvious reasons

if you are shooting a bubble instead of anchoring then I'd bring a falcon, sabre and dps. Reasoning. Sabre for tackle (duh) and webs. Falcon to keep the sabre alive and dps for the kill.

In both cases, in terms of dps anything that does maybe 600dps or more will do. personally I prefer the in-your-face approach so I'd tend to go for a blaster boat like a talos or a naga.
