Hey! So I tried to go solo PvPing in my Raven and loaded some Stront into my cargo (enough for a couple minutes, that stuff takes up a lotta cargo) and headed out. Found a few BCs and killed them easily, but then I jumped into a gatecamp of other BSes. I figured I'd be able to hold out long enough to kill one or two, but that wasn't the case.

I started taking damage, but when I got to 25%, my shields didn't go into reinforced. They continued to take damage until they were depleted and the rest of my ship went up in a puff of smoke.

Was it a bug? Or did I need more? I guess I could fit a cargo expander in the low, but then I'll be doing less damage (swap out a BCU).

What the hell CCP?

Well, I'm going to go ahead and assume this isn't a troll.

Only control towers can go into reinforced mode, and they use strontium to fuel it. Ships cannot go into reinforced, having strontium in your cargo has no effect what so ever.

When faced with overwhelming numbers in a gatecamp, you have a few options to try to survive:
1. wait for the session timer to expire then burn back to the gate best speed and jump through (DO NOT ENGAGE or you not be able to jump through for 1-2min).
2. attempt to warp away (only really possible in a small ship as big ones will be easily caught)
3. log off before your gate cloak wears off. This is a horrible tactic people use (never used it myself, I prefer option 1 or 2 when faced with this situation), your ship will stay in space for 1 min then vanish. When you log it will attempt an emergency warp, if you are tackled, they have 60 seconds to try to kill you as they can't give you an aggression timer due to you already being offline. Log back in and log off again immediately, then log back in again, you should be at a safespot 1million km from the gate.

Because.

I try to give people the benifit of the doubt. I've lost count of the amount of times I've had to explain stuff like "why multi-tanking a ship is a bad idea" in game. People do a lot of silly things, better to give them a bit of advice then point and laugh or troll.
