Trash your security status to -10 and try it then. Everyone and their cat* will be trying to shot you.

* CCP said it was ok for your cat to play also.

It's just not very profitable to gank. Warp to 0 was the first big hit to gate camping that I remember, and the second big one was invention and the reduction of T2 prices.

Ganking combat ships in low sec simply doesn't pay well - less than Lvl 3 missions perhaps, where before you could expect juicy 20m cap recharger 2s on a regular basis.

Ganking industrials can be very profitable, but it's easier done in high-sec.

All of this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just mainly a reflection of the fact that most people's equipment fits are very low value these days.

NOT. There are only few fuks whom RP in hisec as bad ass fuks. Real men stay in null sec.

Eve is pretty dead in a lot of places and this is a major problem, because we have gates that we need to travel through. Most entry gates and choke points are camped by pirates, so getting through is a pain. get rid of gates!

Any how you would be surprised by how many people are worried that ships are cyno ships! again a problem

You are not getting killed because:

1) T1 frig on a gate is hardly worth invoking the wrath of the gate guns + sec status.
2) AP in low-sec looks very suspicious and I would almost always expect it to be bait.

Go -5.0 at least and try it again, I guarantee you will die much quicker. That or fly something worth risking the guns, a T1 hauler, a cruiser, pretty much anything but a T1 frig really.

Or it could be that the average player count on the server is lower than it was in 2009, and people are too busy trying to gather up 800 mil for their PLEX.

internet spaceships

are serious business sir.

What's with all the low sec apologists in here? I think what the OP did and the responses he got for it were quite telling.

Please continue with this and keep us apprised of your adventure.

lol ultimate defence tactic ... someone locks you - drop a cyno.


You are kinda stuck sitting on that gate a long while once you drop the cyno tho ... just saying.

Guess the OP didn't get the Memo - High Sec is the most dangerous space now.

You have just figured out that low sec is in many ways safer than high sec . . .

I live in low sec. I auto pilot around in a T1 frig/Interceptor/Shuttle every day.
Sometimes I mess up and leave it at a gate.
When I get the L5 storyline that drops a +5 implant, I autopilot the implant back to my hub.

Why? Because low sec is freaking empty, no one hangs out looking for an odd frigate/shuttle kill.

Every now and then I get shot at. Often I switch screens just in time to see the gate guns take out some poor fool in a frigate.
Lose maybe 1-2 shuttles per year.
