A hunter sneaks up on you and lights his covert cyno. The blops bridges a bunch of bombers onto you, and may or may not jump itself. Then you die. The end.

I'm going to build a big wall that will keep the Gallente out, and they're going to pay for it!

No. Don't be bad. Google it and read. Then ask a specific question you can't find the answer to.

I tried googling it and all I got was Call of Duty:Black Ops search results. So does that mean doing blops in EVE is playing CoD: Black Ops while playing EVE? Plz explain!

Post with your NPC alt main and not your main main alt!

You live in low sec. Your Google is hard wired to only return results on other games and frigates.

Blops refers to a blacks ops pvp attack.
Hunter ship lights a covert cyno or regular cyno
Black ops battleship bridges to the ship lighting the cyno. The bridge costs fuel depending on what is bridging.
Covert op cloak capable ships (sb, recons etc) bridge throught the black ops battleship to cyno ship or black ops battleships jump to cyno ship. bam your dead
There are range and fuel limitations

Just to add to this, here's a comprehensive list of things that can go through a covert cyno bridge from a blops battleship

Black Ops Battleships (though they really should jump themselves)
T3 cruisers equipped with the covert ops subsystem and a covert ops cloak
Force recon ships (recons that can be equipped with a covert ops cloak)
Stratios
Stealth Bombers
T2 Scanning Frigates
Astero

Titans can't lock on to covert ops cynos (the ones that don't show up on the overview) and everything can be bridged through a titan bridge.. No covert ops limitation on ship types.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.
