They can just sit on the undock and lock targets around the gate? Didn't they make changes a while ago with a mechanic of sitting in a pos assigning drones for anomalies? Roll

The undock has to be within 1000km or so of the gate so no it's not really like the POS thing.

And the ship (Carrier/Super) has to make itself vulnerable to do so.

They used to be able to sit on a POS (or a safe spot) and assign their fighters to someone anywhere in the damned system. At least this way you can see the carrier and get a better idea of your true opposition.
