Is it possible to train up a suicide gank alt in about 1 week to take out non-combat ships?

If so, which ship is the least skill intensive, and does the most damage for suicide ganks? I was thinking of a cruiser class vessel, jam-packed with the appropriate damage modifiers and insured to premium, I've ruled caldari out, as the missiles will take some of the precious few seconds just traveling to the target.


I'm also unsure on the recycling negative sec character rule. Obviously I can't commit to every single suicide alt I create, and there will be times I need to erase that character to fit either a neutral/hauler alt etc. Does making a suicide alt "lock" you into using that character on your account for the rest of EVE?

What kind of prey? Retrievers and some covetors, the Catalyst works wonderfully.

Recycling characters due to sec status issues is not allowed. Considering the lack of skills your characters start with now.... arguing you are re-rolling to start a hauler alt is invalid, you are simply trying to negate low sec standing.

Simply rat up your status and THEN re-roll... Although somehow I suspect once ratted up you aren't going to be wanting to re-roll Rolling Eyes

Just commit to an outlaw alt and start your ganks from low sec.

Pretty much exactly what spank said.

Besides, even being -10, it's not hard to get around that in hisec at all.

Get an alt to drop ships off for you in a safespot, or, better yet, get a corpie in an orca, and just pick the ships up from him/her. You cannot dawdle once you're in the ship, but, it's long enough to get your gank on.

It's not concord that chases you in hisec, it's concord's ******ed cousin, the faction navy.

Hardly. I believe it is only recycling if you are creating another suicide alt for the same purpose. There are lots of other reasons for rerolling other than the start-up skills. Them being the attribute distribution and the 2x training bonus up to 1.6mil sp.

TBH, that is going to be a difficult "rule" for CCP to enforce. Plus I'd like to see it in writing somewhere.

I love this line of reasoning.

You do realize that it's in the EULA and the TOS that CCP can simply turn off your account at any time, for no reason at all? They can decide thay don't like your haircut and ban you for life.

"Hard to enforce" LOL. What color is the sky in your world?

I don't really know why anybody would want to do this tbh.

Why don't you just go to low or null sec & fight like a man or a girl- what ever your gender. Much more fun that way & more satisfying than killing a noob in a velator. I mean you might even have to fight for the kill!
