Gotcha.


No I just don't see how 3 moronic griefers with no risk will make me mine for wweeks on end to get another Hulk.

That is the point. And yes, maybe I am a wuss.


You play for weeks on ends and don't get killed and I just have to log in to be blown up?

And you are the one crying about it.

Hey,

I find it totally untolarable, that 3 1 mill Isk ships can easily gank my tanked 300mill hull. Sorry, but this makes me really sad. It put me out of business for good, that was my last money. Your cool event just cost CCP a subscriber.


Yes tears are delightful, yadda, yadda, no stuff is to be had, because it all exploded.


News for you buddy, 3 *1 mil isk ships cannot gank a tanked hulk. In fact 3 t2 catalysts wont kill a tanked hulk either. Your hull clearly wasn't tanked. A tanked hulk has 30k ehp, 40k ehp if you have the foresight to have a gang bonus. Assuming one catalyst is jammed by those ecm drones you dropped they really need 5 t2 catalysts to kill you.

So it's not your last reply here?

When is your last reply?

Was that it?

Can we expect more?

I agree with you completely and empathise. With this in mind, can I have your isk and ships?

I mine too and you just have to be careful. Mining ships are supposed to be getting a buff soon anyways.

Many gankers do it for one reason... To get their jollys off seeing you get all worked up. I bet your forum post alone has encouraged many to keep doing it.

I don't find Hulkageddon to be amoral bullying, but what I DO dislike about is - lazyness. Kamikaze destroyers just can't be bothered to scan down mission runners, coordinate a fleet for big enough alpha or beliebable bait, etc ... It's much easier to just warp in belt and target the first guy in mining barge.

OP: It never occured to you to hire an escort to protect your 300M Isk investment while it flew through rat-space? I'm pretty sure you could hire an effective guard for 10% of your take. That's how people protect their investments IRL. Sounds to me like you're angry at yourself for not effectively protecting your investment while simultaneously not diversifying your portfolio enough to bounce back from its loss. You put all your eggs in one basket then didn't even bother to be careful about how you carried them. If you didn't learn from this then I feel sorry for your economic outlook IRL.

okay, if you haven't poisoned the pool of potential corps with your whining. find a null sec corp with sov and go there and mine. you will NOT have the false sense of security you obviously have in hisec. you will make way more isk. You will need to work on some useful nellsec skills but you will be mining with your corp and you will lose fewer ships. I have lost way more ships in hi and lo sec than in null.

Well this thread is a little gem. Cool

I wish Jacob Staffuer would return and post some more. He was funny.

From official DevBlog :

# Procurer/Skiff: primarily made for self-defense. Better mining rate than the ORE frig, good ore bay, but capable of having battleship-like EHP.
# Retriever/Mackinaw: made for self-reliance. Has the largest ore bay, similear to the size of a jet can, second best mining output but less EHP than the procurer mining barge.
# Covetor/hulk: ore bay is identical to its current cargo hold, little to average EHP, but best mining output. Basically made for group operations when players have industrials and protection to back them up.

I will still only use a hulk, 'cause its the best.

Untanked, of course - wouldn't want to lower my yeild...

It is likely that the mining vessels will receive a buff, I'm guessing CCP recognizes the problem of low effort hulk hi-sec ganking.
Them combat pilots best enjoy it while they can Pirate The player won't need to toughen up if the hull gets tougher first.

Theyre already planning on buffing the mining vessels. The Skiff gets BS EHP if I am correct, the rest are left as is.
