I was checking the astroid belt in my Taranis Interceptor. When I check belts I always am rdy to jump out. Well this time something did not work... I came in and I saw some NPCfrigs(shades) pressed warp and while I did that I got scrambled... and then webbed and boom...
I warped in at 60 and the shade was 12 km away from me:( But I thought that my Interceptor was suppose to be quick enuff anyway... No lag no nothing, As soon as I saw that there was NPC there I pressed warp... and while warp was in progress I got scrambled... Crying or Very sadCrying or Very sadCrying or Very sad
It really irritates me because nothing at all u can do... just wait for the big boom!Mad

Blood Shades = Interceptor

You warp in and find yourself 12K from them, you are gonna be more scrambled than those eggs you had for breakfast. They do nice damage as well.

Aye, and so where they, right? And they outnumbered you how many times??? Kinda fair they should get you if you ask me... There should always be a risk, even if you're in a ceptor.

However, did you hit your mwd? If not, well, you obviously should when you saw how close they were...

Not saying that it doesn't smell like waggly toes to loose a ship to NPC's, but I do think that it's just fair that there should be some risk involved when you warp to a belt, regardless of what ship you're in...

you should fly away with MWD and then warp away...
when you are in warp scramble range you should not wonder if you where scrambled and webbed...

thats not a bug in the game mechanic, its human failure Laughing

Bit of advice if you are npc'ing in a system try creating a bookmark 100km away form the belt that way you can approach with little fear LaughingLaughing

Yeah, you are right, they are too easy, so what's the point in bragging about it on the forums??? In case you didn't notice the point in the story was ships beeing blown up by npc's... I think we all have killed our share of NPC's, don't we?

warping into a belt and coming out 12km from a spawn sucks, but it's acceptable. When a gang mate has the interceptors killed and is picking off the battleships from 60km away and you warp to him and the npc's disappear and respawn with full interceptor support right on top of both of you is not acceptable.

Another thing that the bughunters should look at is when you warp to a bookmark within a belt and then cancel the warp before you warp away, when someone else is in the belt sometimes that someone will notice the npcs warp over to where your bookmark is that you were just about to warp to.

If this is all well and good, I will wait for the ESP skill to be available on the market so that we can be like the npcs.
