AFK cloak campers are broken.
Please show me a valid reason why they are balanced or add anything to the game.
Now i'm not talking about cyno roamers or intel periodic.
I'm talking about people with X accounts knowing there is no way to get rid of them and make a living out of this broken part of them game.
CCP I don't know what type of solution your going to make for this.
Or how your able to defend this type of game play but it has been going on long enough.
This simply needs addressing.
The only reason i'm able to think of why this has not been fixed is pure $$.
But your losing at least 7 people including me if this does not get solved.

A great example of a **** cloak camper is yoyo210

Deal.

This is the counter to Local being a ridiculous intel source.

Apparently, they add fear into the game.

They are balanced by local, and local is the reason they need to be in the game: to subvert an otherwise perfect intel tool.

Beyond that, they do nothing, so there's no way they can be a problem.

What do AFK campers do besides be there? Surely if they're AFK, they can't do anything.

What you're afraid of is that you can't tell when they come back to their keyboard and become active again, and why should you?

I think it is somewhat balanced by the cost of being AFK and cloaked. And less ISK for the enemy means you need less ISK yourself = profit.

would it be better for you if cloaked ships generated a spoof player name in local?
then you wouldn't need to worry about seeing the same name in local all the time

These posts need to end.

Stop the madness CCP, remove Local already.

And if not, at the very least remove cloaked ships from Local, hence the term "Covert" ops.

You ASSUME they are AFK - they are cloaked and camp your system causing you to hide in your stations in fear of losing a ship.
Is that a good thing to come to the forums saying that you are scared of other peoples pixels?

I am aware of my own ignorance and have checked my emotional quotient - thanks for asking

Your 'Waah afk cloakers are spoiling my easy nullbear activities" whine is strong with this one.

AFK cloakers are here to stay, it has been a point argued to death so many times before.

I'm just going to cloak and AFK in this thread until the OP posts another thread complaining about cloaking people.
