Still on the subject of bumping
which is such an important tool in hi-sec freighter ganking . I have another suggestion .
While undocking at a station in a freighter I had to rub my eyes in disbelief as an NPC hauler went right through my freighter and came out the other side ! No damage and no bump !
The reason I mention this is to make it clear that such a thing is possible . It happened there and can be made to happen again to protect a ship that has woefully little protection right now .
A freighter might also be able to carry a mod designed to do the same thing .
BTW please don't , tiresomely , tell me again about freighters carrying too much expensive
cargo as if you seriously believed it would stop a hi-sec ganking team , drunk on their own power , from blowing up the ship . It's been proven false ! One of the glorious
kills made by CODE had a load of tritanium and the J/F they got was empty .
Present safeguards are ineffective . Once the freighter is gone and it's contents looted , the damage has been done ! Who cares if some cheap destroyers end up paying the price .
Concord should show up in time to protect and not just to punish . That's a given . This would not stop the single part-time ganker from taking a shot now and again if that's where their head is at .
"Paying the price , " What a laugh . They don't even make good kill rights .
Eve was built on the idea that of the BEST opportunities are out THERE . So what's just one segment of the playing community doing sleazing around hi-sec enjoying the greatest opportunities for wealth while taking the least amount of risk ??
Hell , Concord doesn't even pod them , leaving them free to fly destroyers and fill their slots with expensive "dead-eye" and "gunslinger " implants .
