Put an alt into CODE

Good advice! Most who do that will discover how much fun Code is, they'll end up quitting their old boring PvE grind.

Jenn gave some good information on how to avoid being ganked, however I would advise using a Covert T3C instead of a transport ship as a better approach for the expensive modules.

Just to be clear a webber is not going to help you if the gankers suicide a point onto your bowhead so as to get a bumper onto it, this is something that the gankers will do, so bear that in mind.


I prefer using an insta-warp speed rigged ceptor for moving my incursion mods. most of the really expensive ones are not size specific (A type adaptives etc) or particularly large. Fit all the tank mods you can, if your transporting them may as well use them. and throw the rest in the hold (only ones that might cause problems would be officer guns... which i'm sure SOMEONE uses, but thats a pretty obscene investment for meh returns)

Yes, in theory its at risk of getting caught by suicide smart-bombers, but with a decent tank its going to take 2-3 suicide smart bombers with pretty impeccable timing to catch you out. and even then they would need to know that you are coming through with bling, which would require them getting VERY lucky since even with scouts you will be on grid for only a second or two as you are jumping through the gate. and with the warp speed rigs would also need that scout to be far enough along the route (and for you to take the route they expect) for them to get the ships in position quickly enough.

that one was very likely a wardec kill, and it definalty wasn't a suicide gank. PIRAT does mass wardecs and is very active in the amarr area. and t3cs may be a bit op, but not 30k+ damage before concord shows up OP.


Doh, I totally miss the box that says war on the top right hand corner. Was wondering why a suicide gank would be done with a bunch of T3 cruisers lol.

Yeah me too. Another danger with this is transporting expensive stuff to/from trade hubs without instant dock/undock bookmarks. E.g. https://zkillboard.com/kill/62449414/

And still got ganked on the way to the next incursion focus.

Well, technically there is no way to be 100% safe since they can keep bumping you with a velator for 3 minutes while throwing tornadoes and catalysts at you.

that one was very likely a wardec kill, and it definalty wasn't a suicide gank. PIRAT does mass wardecs and is very active in the amarr area. and t3cs may be a bit op, but not 30k+ damage before concord shows up OP.


It was a war dec kill, says so right at the top.

Most of the ones that get suicide ganked are speed / agility fit.

Gets over 600k EHP with the invulns overheated.

This basically. The trick is to disable MWD auto-repeate. If you load system activate warp to the next gate and simply press the MWD button. When it finishes cycle you will immediately enter warp. It's also extremely fast to transport stuff that way and you need no webber. Works for Orca as well.

Also, a mining permit never hurts Big smile

I suspect at least a third of AG have CODE. alts.

Or is it the other way around?


Those macharial ganks are going down with more efficiency than ever. Makes me wonder.

Liquidate bulky stuff, travel light , insta warp, and buy local. You are running incursions. You have ISK.

After a long skip, I came back to play. I'm disappointed to see that there are so many pirates in high sec that it is already frustrating the beginners. It is not safe to do the initial moves and missions to earn some money because they are also pirates on the site of each mission. Concord is not worth much Against piracy.That's a ****.It would not have to get new players with omega status, but let them discover the possibilities of the new game without the need for the pirates to shoot their pods.It is also autopilot, because high in no way can be used.

If you are really ballzy, you can do as I did back when I ran incursion and just fly from focus to focus combat fit in your boat.

They can't pop your Bowhead if you don't fly a Bowhead.

Thread so far:

"I want to fly cargo extender tank on autopilot and be unkillable."
"Can I check map while warping? But that's sooo much effort!"
"What's a war-dec?"


Flying the incursion pimpboat in megatank/ pvp mode personally is one solution, there are others (and better too) but as noting in eve is served on a silver platter, I shall not help you.
