Make local a sov upgrade!

There problem solved in a hilarious and fun manner.
Better upgrade the ratting systems and sink lots of isk into them.

I just thought of an idea: a midslot mod that sends false data to the incoming gate, spoofing a blue player or no player at all in local. Twisted

You make a valid point, good Sir or Madam.

What's the big deal with afk cloaking? I'm a hi sec master race, so I have no idea what that is. We are too busy making isk.

as far as I can tell afk cloakers have very little effect on wormholes.

if ccp removed local to a certain degree this would fix it as much so.

make local a sov thing.
sov 5/milirary 5 and with a anchorable module to show local.

otherwise local wont "show" at all.

From a hi sec miner's view point, ganking can happen at anytime, and there are reasons I don't own a mining barge other then the procurer, your people should band together and set a trap put some barges together run cheap haulers and do your thing, ratting be pvp prepared as you should be in 0.0

When they remove local they can put a 12 hour timer on cloaks.

So how do you think an AFK cloaker is generating income? I can sit in Hs or my WH cloaked all day and I have yet to make any isk out of it.

The problem is your fear of losing a ship I assume, however that AFK cloaker can't hurt you! Your logic is flawed. If he attacks you he isn't afk.. Put a tank on your ship, park a fast locker near you, IF he uncloaks (this is where your logic is flawed, if he uncloaks he isn't afk) and kill him...What seems to be the problem.

Us wormholers kill cloaky people all the time. You just have to use your brain (you know that thing inside your thick headed skull) and figure out a way to fight kill him. But then you says we can't kill him if he's afk, well, he can't hurt you if he's afk either.

This is a pvp oriented game, it's also a MMO... get some friends together and help kill him.

Cloaking is not the issue. It's more the ability to affect gameplay while not at the computer. Though CCP seems to be closing down on afk activities in the broader sense so perhaps we will see something from them on this at some point.

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



They make you rage on the forums and show what a nullbear you are... coward

Once again another nullbear has come crying on the forum to complain about being scared of somebody who is afk.

On an unrelated topic,

If one were to fit a stealth bomber to go into null and harass miners which, in your opinion, would be the best damage type?

Oh, this story again.


New and exciting.

Don't be scared, because being afk is not a crime.

If you undock, you could lose your ship. This is EVE, this is the game you are playing. Deal with it.

The question is, How are they affecting gameplay by NOT being at the computer, if they're not there go about your business!

Dear CCP,

A guy has been sitting in a cloaked Ibis doing nothing in my rented nullsec system for 3 weeks. Please make him go away because I'm too scared to undock, even though I know this guy is doing nothing & can't actually hurt me. I shouldn't have to pay rent for a system I'm too scared to use while a cloaked Ibis is here.
