CODE has the odd person that can actually PvP.

But shooting at AFK haulers being driven by an NPC autopilot is about as carebear as it comes.

Read this whole thread, ironic to see low / null sec anti-PvE players complain about players doing high sec PvE content.

Despite all of the changes made to the game, seems this topic will never change..

Just another day in Uedema for carebear haulers. Code, on the other hand, will get one shot killed trying to get in on the kill mail. No 5 sec timer on Drifters, just targeted.."Wha-" BOOM!

Good news, salvaging as a profession is now back on!!!!!

WOOOOT!!!!

Uh ok. They also get shot without aggressing by the faction police. Not quite a one-shot, but they are dead none-the-less if they are in space for any length of time.

Probably you should get you salvage ships there today if you want that profit. No point in waiting for Drifters.

Drifter Incursions set a new record in feature irrelevance. They'll be back someday but I wonder how many people will notice/care...

so just run some test on these new drifter incursions.....

first run, before we could even wipe our butts, guardian was armor was gone, got reps on it as it was dd'd off field. then when m8's ship got poped they scrambled his pod but couldn't hit it. had to bring in another bs so they would switch agro so he could warp out. which was funny as heck. then we tried nestors. they had a navy apoc primaried and reps we're holding... then out of nowhere, nestor got dd'd lol

Sansha incursions started this same way. After experimental phase, they introduced current system.

How many were on grid? Were they acting individually or with military precision like they were being FC'd and given specific targets?

military precision like they were being FC'd and given specific targets.

they where all shooting same target with primary weapon and then one would use secondary aka dd on logi.

Well, the Drifters are officially back in the game, but I've heard there may be some kind of bug that makes them easier than they should be.

More than that.

The bug is that drifters attack other drifters.

Therefore, warp in, wait. Kill the last stand. If lucky, they already fired off their doomsdays and voila. Free isk, no ships lost.

In the defense ones, no shots are required because the Amarr navy kills them

So grab your small cheap gank fleet, fly in and shoot the last standing. FREE LP AND ISK!

To quote Lfod Shi

The ratting itself is PvE. Getting away with it is PvP.

Ouch. That is a pretty big bug. No wonder the Incursions flyers seem to be doing so well.
