Hello C&P,

I am here to ask for advice from some of the nefarious and infamous individuals who populate this part of the forums, i pride myself on being a self sufficent sort but i am out of my depth with this one.

I am a simple research alt who has his own one man corp and small pos a couple of jumps from Jita, today most regrettably i logged on to find myself being decced by what i can only assume to be a gang of griefers/opportunists (Torsk Fiskere are the corp in question). I am the alt of a mish runner who has no enemies and minds his own business in a small player corp with no enemies/deccings. I do not bother people and basically do not play enough to qualify as mattering in EVE online in the wider sense.

My operation is so small that i have already taken down my little operation with the exception of the Caldari small tower, i had no bpo's and few bpc's and generally just made stuff for my mish runner char or some small stuff to trade. i do not have the resources needed to hire a merc corp and if this is a randsom well frankly i cant and wont pay anything.

I have decided to sacrifice my (empty) tower if they come for it and would like to ask here what i can do to maximise the cost and effort they will need to employ to take my tower down. yes i will lose a lot of isk (to me) but quite frankly... **** them.

I plan to leave minimal fuel and nothing else in the tower but want to fit it as best i can to repel an attack and cause maximum loss to my enemy, can i ask what would cause them maximium effort? how do i 'deathstar' a small Caldari POS. The labs that were there are now gone and safely stored away.

I understand if my post causes boredom or laughter but i felt the hardend souls in this forum would understand best the mind of the agressor and what would cause him discomfort.

thank you for reading this.

TL;DR Small one man Corp gets decced, asks for advice in making his last stand

ps - please dont dec me if you think this is ******ed :D

1. Join high sec pvp alliance, this transfers the wardec to the entire alliance.

2. Give POS pw to alliance.

3. Watch ransomers not show and allow dec to die.

Given your POS is in highsec, take down everything other than the tower and stick up a huge pile of shield hardeners and EWAR batteries.

The aim of the game is to make your tower annoying as hell to hit and to make it so that they expend more money on ammo than you spend on the strontium should they take it into reinforced. If there's no shiny labs or hangars with expensive goodies inside, their rewards for spending an extended period of time trying to shoot the thing will be pretty much nothing.

ECM (go heavy on the white noise - amarr ships are widely used for POS bashing because of their lack of ammo and reloads); a pile of sensor damps, you can reduce their lock range so they cant even reach the tower while outside the shields; neut batteries are always good to annoy amarr pilots.

The easiest way to dodge the high sec wardec is to move into providence, 0.0 space controlled by cva alliance, and they allow noobs like you in there and they wont kill you.


The war targets wont follow you and if they do, they will be shot.

Just in case you haven't heard, shore up on ECM batteries. Put a heavier focus on Amarr and Caldari racial ones.

My understanding was that its not case of saveing it, but to make attacker pay high price of destruction of pos tower.

If he wants to save it all he needs to do is unachor it and put it in storage for a while.

Spam ECM like there's no tomorrow, and fit a couple of warp disruption battery's, to hopefully get someone pointed and jammed such that they have to self destruct since they cannot lock the warp disruptor to incap it. Laughing
