never minned a day in my life other than that mission that made me mine once...

so i was looking at the hulk today and was wondering why there are so many high sec bear tears... when i noticed it had this awesome resist bonus profile but it cant fit a bloody LSE?!?!??!

either fix the damn ship ccp or add the 5th subsystem to TIII ships that are indy/minning based... shesh!

Yeah, Hulks are gankbait.

I find actually being at the keyboard improves your odds of survival, though.

Yeah, Hulk is a T2 BC sized ship with a sub-cruiser tank.
Fricken pathetic and should be addressed.

I do not advocate making Exhumers with super-tanks but at least something respectable for their size, cost and tech level.

Nothing clever at this time.

Pretty much that's all the Hulk needs in the way of buffing, is a bigger power grid to fit LSEs.

…so how many 1600mm plates do you usually fit your Iterons with?

I have recently taken up the olympic flame of ganking Hulks and I must say they are pretty ******* ridiculous. My t2 fit Catalyst rocking overheated neutron smoked a Hulk in a 0.8 system before CONCORD even showed up on grid. And I probably could've done it in a t1 fit. 5 minutes ratting in nullsec and I recovered the ISK and sec loss. I'm all for making Hulks gankable in highsec but I'd like to see doing it require something like a gang of what I was flying, or maybe a high-DPS cruiser (Thorax) or BC hull to do it.

This was ages ago, but still makes me laugh.

I think it was in 2006 if I remember correctly. My corp at the time was part of the ASCN and we had a mining op going on in null. HULKS were still pretty rare at that time (and a lot more expensive than now), and our CEO had just purchased one and swore up and down that they had a great tank.

He asked us to open fire on him to test it.

We deactivated our launchers after he started screaming on VENT for us to stop shooting him. We stopped shooting him but quite a few missiles were still in flight and heading his way.

BOOM.

He owned it for all of 15 minutes or so between purchase and it getting blown to shreds.

Afterwards, a Mercenary Coalition interceptor grabbed his pod in the same system at the gate and blew up his multi billion isk implant set.

And he forgot to update his clone before that. ;)

You can get 24k ehp out of it without gang boosts.

But you cut yield to the point you may as well be in an insured covetor instead, with zero tank, and a small loss if your ganked.

I lied :o

Hulks very rarely are tanked. You will know when you slam into a supertank hulkTwisted

The Hulk aligns more slowly than a plated Abaddon does. Considering its size and vulnerability, that feels very wrong.

Quite irrelevant.

The point is, they're both the same kind of ship: a non-combat industrial-type ship meant for one thing and one thing only (and, just to repeat that: it's not combat). You can still squeeze 30k EHP out of a Hulk, and that's fairly respectable for what it is and what it's supposed to be doing.

I'm not a miner, but it always confused me that a t2 ship of that size has such a pathetic tank. All the tank fits I've seen for them have small shield boosters. Hulk are definitely not frigates CCP. I think they should get more tank and keep in mind I'm a lot more likely to be killing a hulk than driving one.

It has three highs and no hard points. Nobody is going to be using them for combat even if they get a tank buff. CCP is getting rid of drone minerals in order to buff null mining. If they want people to mine in null they need to give them a ship with a better tank to do it in.

Poorly fitted T3 miner. *fixed*

Thread amuses me, you should see the **** people have to fit to just be able to tank 0.0 rats. On top of the ship price you need deadspace shield boosters and all kinds of ****.

Could be a 500m loss in 0.0 if ganked.

I'm sure they are all over battleclinic...

Keep in mind, people have been mining in 0.0 for years without this. But it requires more to do it.

I don't mine in empire and haven't since i started playing.

However, I can understand with the new t3's and the ease at which destroyers can kill a hulk in empire, it requires some more thought.

All the industrail sector ships need an HP bump, and a big bump at that. If they have to cost more in minerals, so be it.

Supertankers would have a better tank if their job required them to be in an asteroid belt full of hostile battleships.

As someone above me mentioned it requires a ridiculously expensive deadspace loot fit to do it. Forcing people to take out a second mortgage to afford enough PLEX to cover their losses is not an effective way to make mining the main source of high end minerals.
