I jump into a 0.4 sec thread in my internet explorer with 2 WCS and a Cloaking Device.

Upon arriving on the other side, I see about 10 red blinky trolls about 15-20 posts down (clearly a troll thread).

Still cloaked after the click, I guess that my best method of escape is to tap my back button for a second and immediately close the browser.

But apparently that is not good enough.

Within that time period, I am *immediately* enraged, so my cloaking device doesn't work.

[ 2010.01.01 22:34:44 ] (notify) Mouse moves to top left corner
[ 2010.01.01 22:34:47 ] (notify) You cannot go back as you are being troll by trolls. Never thought smacktalk would hold me up.

Shortly thereafter: Pop.

*Zero* chance to escape. WTF...

(Is that really reasonable? If so, then there is NO safe way to jump into low-sec General Discussion.)

Btw: How do people successfully troll me within 2-3 seconds? (My understanding is: One needs to get a target LOCK on my ip to prevent my backing, correct?)

Simple. actually.

You were obviously in a browser powered by an inferior processor, running a substandard browser routine, on a slow datastream, belaboring a fail point.

You were countered by someone in a much better browser powered by a vastly superior processor possessing an infinipoint to counter your fail point, connected via latest-generation fiber optics.

The issue is not so much about not being able to escape such a gate camp with a BC. The issue in my opinion is the EXTREME difference between 0.5 and 0.4 security, and pretty much none at all between 0.4 and 0.1. Even though it may be justified to keep the CONCORD away from low sec I still think that the gates and stations should have a lot more defence. Something like this (measured in Turret Strengths, an imaginary unit I have no value to give at this time):
And since PvP is no my thing in EVE these descriptions will sound silly to many of you but maybe you'll get my meaning if you give it a try.

0.4 : 50 TS at gates (you practically need capital ships to keep camping these gates)
0.3: 25 TS at gates (A sizeable fleet of battleships should do the trick)
0.2: 12 TS at gates
0.1: 6 TS at gates
0.0 gates leading to low sec: 3 TS (More like an annoyance to campers than a real threat)

You could still hunt mission runners and miners with ease in 0.4 but on the other hand people could more easily enter low sec and see what is happening in local. Right now you pretty much need an alt to scout the gate before you bring anything through the gates. Currently the security system is more or less binary for new players and carebears. The system either has security or not. There is no gray area.

An alternative approach might be to make 0.5s a little less safe...

Concord is a pretty bad game mechanic in itself TBH. Why would you want to inflict them on low sec? That's just cruel.

I can't see it being a bad gameplay mechanic. Well, if the point is to guarantee a measure of safety for non-pvp pursuits.

If you want no safety anywheres, then yes it's bad, but you are talking about a radically different game, and one I'm not the players would be up to handling.

Only if Concord/faction police gets appropriately weakened in .5 and .6 systems.

After all they are only marginally safer than .4 (using your logic)

It's bad for a few reasons the major of which is the way sec status and standings work and the way that system sec status works. Except that no one is asking for it to be removed ( he suggested that it "may be justified" implying that it was questionable in the first place). All I said was that the desire to inflict such a flawed mechanic on low sec was crazy, pointless, and works against the whole idea of lowsec. Just not in so many words.

Further more the poster wants turret strength changed based on sec status. It already does, there are more turrets around higher security gates then there are in lower security ones, and in null sec there are none. Care-bears don't want to go into PvP, especially involuntarily. Happy-friendly lowsec-land wouldn't change that.

If you want to fly through low sec solo, you might want to try doing it in a ship better setup to evade gate camps instead of a super slow battle cruiser. BC's have a huge ****ing sig radius, so enemy tacklers get a major major advantage locking BC's compared to you flying a smaller ship.

Solo flying through low sec is for people who actually understand what to do to survive. hint hint, you probably should have hit the MWD and gone for the gate immediately when your initial cloak ran out... If you are now thinking "that's no help, I didn't even have a MWD fitted" then you are double fail for forgetting the most important module on your ship... Shocked

Or better yet try not fly BC's solo in low sec and start with something like an interceptor. Fly BC's in gangs or with a scout, unless you are an idiot or accept the risk without crying on forums about it afterward

Oh, and cloaking in a freaking BC is usually not going to lead to your escape anyway... unless you somehow figured out how to fit a covert ops cloak. 10 blinky reds at a gate are probably going to figure out how to decloak you at freaking 12km off the gate.

--

To escape gate camps:
1) Fly in a ship designed to escape them, like a fast frigate that is way harder to lock quickly than a battlecruiser
2) Fly a stealth bomber or other frigate that fits a covert ops cloak, and PRACTICE hitting warp followed by enabling your cloak as fast as you can without getting a warning that you did it too quickly (before the game starts your warp and does you initial decloak)
3) GET SOMEONE TO SCOUT YOU!!! If you want to fly a ship like a BC that almost anyone can nearly instantly lock, you should have someone in a fast ship checking ahead of you for gate camps... then simply don't fly your BC into the gate camp like a fool.

You will rarely lose a ship to a gate camp if you follow any one of those 3

Cloak can't be engaged if someone even begins targeting you. So you need to align and cloak in one swift motion basically, to give them no time to click on you. A little bad luck and latency will get you killed though...


Tha is NOT true. When you have an yellow bracked you have already been locked. Try liek this.. get a stealth bobmer.. and a friend in acarrier. Ask him to start locking. SHould take almost 1 minute. You can cloak any time during that.


Fact is BC is not a small ship and its easy to lock it in 1 seconds only. And Server lag sometimes is far larger than that so your cloak command might not arrive in time.


That's how I learned it worked back in RMR when I was first messing around with cloaks. I haven't had time to test it yet but not in a big hurry either. If nothing else the paranoia has kept me safer over the years Laughing

By your logic, the ONLY people who should ever venture into low-sec space are covert ops or fleets of ships.

Or, fly an alt in to get killed first.

Again, so idiotic...

Is that really the way this game is meant to be played? I think not.

Btw: Risk is fine. But inescapable guaranteed insta-death is really lame, imo.



He didn't say you NEED a covops or a massive fleet at all. And he's not being idiotic, he's handing out perfectly appropriate advice.

It is a standard technique to use alts to scout ahead. If you HAVE alts, and you're moving ships/cargo which is expensive enough that you feel you cannot afford to lose it, then its a bloody good idea to use them to scout, and if you don't then you're probably doing it wrong. Also, if you're any good at scouting your alt WONT die, but even if he does its better the alt die in a throwaway covops ship, than your main dying in something much more expensive.

And, as it happens, the game is meant to be played whilst cooperating with other players, and in some case cooperation means having alts and cooperating with yourself. Half the playerbase does it.

So whether or not its the way its meant to be played, it happens to be the way that it IS played.

Basically, you're calling someone an idiot, when everything that you've typed makes you look like you're a noob who doesn't actually understand how the game works. Until such a time as you have educated yourself, you probably shouldnt mock people regarding a subject they clearly understand better than you.

If you got a problem with PVP or getting ganked there is more then one way to get out of it, 1 being stay in .5+ or going and playing HelloKitty Online.


Be carefull with such advices. Do you remember what happened with Felucca after the introducing of Trammel?
To EVE the same thing could happen soon (STO and so).

Epic troll 9/10 for length

and ill bite

YES YOU FAILED HARD a ****ing freigther can escape a low sec gate camp allthough with underhanded method, and no latency is not the problem YOU ARE

and a little info 4 things make you not cloak : Yellow box, Red box, being within 2000meters of something, corrupt cache and setting files

learn game mechanichs before coming on the forums and making stupid threads
