You know. I have kind of changed my mind. Speaking to the fools in BTL that continue to spam their fits (Anyone actually enforce the 5 minute rule anymore?) Few actually give a damn as long as THEIR shiny fleet continues to rake in the cash.

They could care less that it is the nonshiny fleet types that are suffering the most from these interdiction and extortion. They wont be able to complete many sites being without being contested by shiny fleet after shiny fleet. Then again that is pure joy for some of those fools.


Yep, this has been my experience. Our fleet is mostly newer players in T1s with some Basilisks and a Loki thrown in. Yesterday we managed to do only three sites uncontested. The rest of the time we got out DPSed by shiny fleets who got the ISK and moved on.

Oh well, back to wormholes I go. Let me know when you guys get bored of taking down the mother ships. Lol


I joined a toon to a null corp. I fly a drake while most fly T2's. We got hotdropped by PL in capitals.. I can't fly one. That's not fair, let me whine on the forums how i am going back to HS.
Nothing wrong with T1 ships in incursions if they fitted properly and the fleet is FC'd well. maelstrom's, abbadon's and hyperions can put out decent dps. Its knowing the mechanics that wins the contest, not always the shiny ship.



Not sure what your point is? I was agreeing with the previous poster that now the number of available incursion sites has been cut, mostly T1 fleets can't out-DPS the shiny fleets. Before this we were doing totally OK without the shiny. Not raking in some of the ISK that's been reported on the forum but we weren't losing ships and it was better ISK than missioning. Plus it was good to have 10+ players doing something together as a team. Yesterday on the other hand we only got about three sites where we didn't have another fleet warp in and grab the ISK because they killed more Sansha than we could. The incursion interdiction is largely going unnoticed by the shiny fleets right now.

For me as a mostly carebear player the best option is to go back to doing wormholes. That's not whining, it's a factual statement.


My point is that you were out classed.. so you give up.. Make no mistake, I am a carebear too :)

Admit it, you are trying to goth-serve the forums, aren't you? Cool



Never. But you've reminded me how much fun it was back in the 90's to laugh at men in eye liner do that funny wavy dance to sisters of mercy at the local alternative club.

Jokes on them. Even Andrew Eldritch hated that goth label and at a HOB in Orlando back in '99 he wore a Starfleet sweatshirt as a way of telling everybody what a bunch of dorks they were.

I bet he would join our mom-takedown fleet if he played Eve.

And emo miners should join the fleets too if they fit a T1 BS the way they are asked to. Just don't let them talk in fleet channel lest we get a barrage of "nobody cares" and "what difference does it make" and other such stuff that will make me want to SD. As long as there are no neglected rose garden sites in the incursion system they won't be stopping to write bad poetry about it and hold up the op.

Speaking of BS fits, any ideas floating about yet for a good "mom takedown fleet fit"? Maybe another thread....

I started a thread in Ships & Modules - well "group source" this with the EFT hounds.

I happen to use a armorphoon with logi drones... better facking drone boat than Gallente (IMO). Phoons: ugly and cheap. Ugly and cheap is good in everything except cars and women.

dear god i wanted to fly a typhoonFI in incursions so badly just because they were the worst ships ever
i was ready to fit officer mods on it, but it still barely got more dps then a maelstrom (not taking into account missle explosion radious or velocity)

The phoon was my first BS and I have a hangar full of faction and dedspace armor modules from exploration in serpy land. Had some good resists.

You get used to the ugliness and eventually stop calling it "the trashcan" after a year. Been trying to get mine destroyed for a year but it's tough.

High-Sec Incursions... take too long, ISK's being farmed, CCP too slow... this is all thats being reported, being brought to our attention, or having a dime being dropped on it ??? Oooh, there's a flash.

Try reminding all us miners, waiting any insufferable number of days & weeks for an end to an Incursion event., so that we can get back to what we do. Haven't I long suspected that Incursion activities were being 'milked' to no end... like duh. And by the way... does it or does it not seem... there is a disproportionate number of Incursion activities in Amarian controlled space?

But let's be honest...nobody likes a whistle-blower...even if you are right. There an old saying... if you can beat 'em... join 'em. Blink

I am quite certain that you are mistaken about the point I was trying to make., when in all actuality... Incursion events are an overall blessing in disguise. How dare I say that...? Let me put to you this way... it's more like Incursions vs Hulkageddon. I'll let you be the judge... Blink

You go ahead and out care those carebears!

And then you can go after the SOVs who are milking the incursions on their turf!

And then you can break up the moongoo monopolies out there!

Oh wait, moongoo won't be in such demand if hisec players don't have a need for all that t2 stuff anymore...

Hell - Just get your pet CSM to outlaw hisec! That will "urge" those carebears into .... into..... well, actually, it will most likely"urge" them into dropping their subs..... Hell, thats ok, too! lessee.... how many accounts does that mean..... Might be some numbers around here about last summer that could be applied here.....
