I dont understand why miners dont support hulkageddon. Ever miner ship that gets blown up means less supply, prices rise, and the miners that dont need more ships make more money. Just tank your ship and dont mine in giant hub systems.


There are miners that support hulkageddon. It's just the AFK miners and macro runners that moan and whinge about it. PROPER miners welcome it with open arms.

Being miner idustrialist myself, hulkageddon is a double edged sword,. On one Side it is our proffesion and income that is being targeted, I admit there are plenty of ways to avoid falling victim, but this being Eve you are never 100% safe

On the other hand most victims will be macro's and i aplaud that, I would even suggest that if there was way to verify that what you kill is indeed a macro, i even would donate a plex for the person who killed most macro's

A few quick questions?

Is the Hulkageddon 4 ingame channel setup as of yet? Also, when should people who are in NPC corporations start joining the Hulkageddon Orphanage?

real miners are in 0.0, where hulkageddon won't normally affect you, as high-end ores/minerals will probably not see a massive increase in price, and you probably won't get ganked by a handful of thrashers

The only thing I hate about this event is the pretense that it's about afk miners. It's not. It's just about killing ships. There's nothing wrong with that in eve, clearly, so why the pretense? Nobody makes any effort to find the bot miners and kill them. People just gank any miner that's available. And again, who cares? Kill anybody you want, it's eve.

Because by definition anyone who is not asleep at the wheel can quite easily avoid getting ganked son.

Achievement: Rookie fleet, best fleet.

Award: 1 x 30 days Pilot License Extension

Awarded to those with the most exhumers kills using one of the four rookie ships (Velator, Reaper, Ibis, Impairor) . In case of a tie, the winner is the one with the biggest damage inflicted against exhumers. If again a tie, GTFO.

Since it's almost impossible to solo kill exhumers with rookie ships, team work is a must.

Prize already sent to our benefactor... i mean Helicity Boson

I'm happy to report that today I get to add a Raven Navy issue (tradia maximus) and another imperial navy slicer (dmitri valenov) to the prize pool!

I'm still looking for some more isk sponsors as this is easier to divide over the prizes!

Any miners reading this who would like protection from Hulkageddon, mail or message me in game. I know a thing or two that could help ;)

Would a suicide gank fit Thrasher with 7x 280mm Howizter Artillery II do well soloing against retrievers in 0.5?

Yes if you're able to fit all that. However, T2 guns would be silly. Meta 1s will get the job done w/ 5 or so rounds of faction ammo and a coupla meta 1 gyros. If you've got the skill for destroyers at about III or higher.

yes, but don't use T2 fits when suicide ganking :P
also, sensor boosters are your friend.

Yes.. and as stated, don't use T2 (besides painful fitting) T1 will work if skills atleast decent. Use Republic Fleet ammo.. which I'd advice anyone and everyone using arty/ACs do from dessie on up. Fire in optimal, falloff = chance for missing reguardless of firing at stationary target and tracking equation(which in itself can cause misses if you aren't being proper).

Retrievers can typical be found in 'far-flung' systems, flown by dedicated miners or macros that know its Hulk time in my experinces.. but still want to mine, and using a cheap ship to do so. they also tend to replace Macks in ice belts too. They must be stopped.. all of them.

Thanks guys. You were of course correct. Thrasher with some T1 artillery, sensor boosters and some tech 1 gyros had no trouble with retrievers. had a blast last night. :)

Used Republic Fleet EMP S ammo.
