I just have an honest question.

Why can you not probe down a cloaked person when the cloak only makes you invisible and doesn't remove your mass from space?

No one cares about rp in F&I, here we care about gameplay.

Why can't I (with electronics 5, electronics upgrades 5 and jury rigging 5) rip out/hack the transponder in my ship to display false or no data in the local system comms channel?

I dont think this is a RP question. EVE is based (for the most part) on 'science'.

I do think cloaks should have an expiration limit on them, so this may be why I find this a legitimate question. So flame me as you may.

It asks why some fiction concept doesnt prevent cloaking. That's rp. I ask why mod X got no counter, thats gameplay.
Just because you have no idea what RP means doesn't make this non-rp question.

It's a mix of gameplay and ~science~

I mean, it's gameplay AND science that your cloak desynchronizes if somebody gets within 2km of you, so why is it game breaking if you can be probed out while cloaked?

Also, the obvious counter is to just double click a direction in space that isn't in-line to any celestials so when they land, they can't bump you. Think of it as an idiot tax.
