I was approaching a gate in hi sec in my itty when I was fired upon.

I just sat back and watched the fireworks as concord came to the rescue.

Man, what an idiot.

most of them ARE idiots, yes..

the closest any group has come to ganking me was when i ran into 5 BS (3 raven, an apoc, and a geddon) .. they even had sentry drones out..

they attacked my occator (which is tanked) .. and i WAS AFK, but when i heard locking sounds, i came back and turned on my damage control (the only part of my active tank) ... and sat back and watched.

shields vaporized, i mean, might as well not even been there... armor held better, and.. at the end of their gank (this was 0.5 sec, so, 20 seconds?) concord came and blew them all up.. i had 97% hull left. and epic lols.
.

i said something like "GF, closest anyone's came before" .. one guy started askin me if i was really AFK, if i had got back to turn on hardners, etc .. he wouldnt believe it was just a DC.. but, i lol'd.

the rest of them, 4 other attacks that i recall, never even got past my shields. (ok, well, one got like 1% knocked off my armor) .. so, extra fail.

got to give them credit though.. if they didnt make isk doing it, i assume they wouldnt BE doing it..

Translation:
OMG, I almost got ganked in my untanked hauler like every other idiot carebear but somehow lag and Concord saved me so now I'm here gloating! I'm so awesome because I lucked out!

If the OP would have lost his ship he would either A) not be making a post, or B) making a post about how suicide ganking isn't fair and needs to be stopped right away.

Despite having lost lots of ISK to them, I think suicide gankers are cool.

The irony of the last time I got suicide ganked (several months ago) was the fact that I actually stayed at a gate because I thought some dude was about to suicide a hauler and I wanted to watch and laugh; instead he turned around and suicided me. Mad Lost me a DG Medium Tower. Stupid kharma.

I let my well tanked alt carry anything expensive now. ugh

To be fair, it is entirely possible that he tanks his itty.

For enjoyment you can hang out in .5 systems at gates you know gankers are active at in a kestrel/something cheap with a few high slots, when they do gank the hauler shoot the can. It gets you concorded as well, but it makes for a great local.

Unlike all the other trolls in here, I take it you put on a passive shield tank and a bunch of extenders?

This is why insurance is bad. I'm not saying remove insurance from suicide ganking ships, I'm saying remove all insurance from all ships.

Actually it was the first time it has ever happened to me, so I was amused.
Ate through my armor and had maybe a quarter of my hull left, but I was really impressed with the fireworks concord provided. Concord doesnt **** around.

it wont change much, it will just raise the bar a little.

however I do agree... insurance should be removed for everything!

Suiciding is pretty lulz, the hate mail and the spam in local make it worth it.

LOL yeah, so we can all start flying noob ships because they're free, right? OMG... imagine civilian rails on a noob ship with 2km range! That would be so epic!

Or, you can just create your own game and call it Noob Ship Online.

Been carrying valuables through empire often in my bustard... Always wanted someone to try suiciding me. Still hasn't happened.

I've never insured a ship in almost two years across three characters. There's no need.

Well yeah. But the good gankers actually make billions. And it makes me sad that I have never really done it :(.

Well, I finally got hit. Caught me off guard in 0.5. Found out the hard way that Concord doesn't always show up.

Lost 175 million in material and contract collateral. That's all the isk my corp had. (I'm a one man corp BTW)

So my alt is auctioning off the corps BPO collection.

I'm also taking donations. Sad

I love suicide gankers, they help keep my stocks turning over.

I've had a suicide ganker hit me, die, then buy a ship and rigs from me five minutes later :P

20m isk geddons are ridiculous period.

It's easy to make 20m in 30 minutes of missioning, BSs should be worth more. Insurance needs to be overhauled or taken out.

Insurance allows casual players the opportunity to still play, not everyone can play 4-6 hours a day.

Insurance should be canceled on the ship you are flying when you perform a criminal action.
