hey is it possible to like get a ship with a hardcore tank (like a rattlesnake), do a lvl 4 mission, let a bs spawn aggress you, release tech 1 crap drones to shoot the battleships, leave your computer afk all day and comeback to find your ship still alive, your drones haven't killed anything 'but' your wallet is filled up from bounties !?

or do missions not work like that ?? =]

I think people do this with a Dominix already. Problem is you still have to watch for triggers or your drones will all die.

The point of the game is to BE AT THE KEYBOARD.

You'll be disappointed with your bounties being that mission rats dont respawn until after downtime.

You'll have to actually play the game I'm afraid.

ok that's fine, but can you give me recommendations of the best ship to use that will survive (good tank) lvl 4's, if my eve client crashes (because it does from time to time, like when the phone rings)

i dont want to grind for an expensive fitted golem, just to lose it if something goes wrong, that's why i need something that can tank lvl 4's if my game ever crashes or disconnects

plz give me one ship so i can train towards it =]

thank u

The best T1 ship for that sort of thing is going to be the Dominix.

Tell that to the ratting Domi pilot who passed out in a low sec belt with his drones out. Woke up to find a dead Caracal next to him.

i used it some time ago.... Dominix 2xLAR2 + T2 heavy drones. Lauch, go to sleep. 2 hours after wake up -> get drones back, complete mission.

Not all the missions work this way.
1) gates
2) triggered spawns

Something to note is that if your game crashes... once you lose connection to the server your ship will perform an e-warp in a random direction and you will vanish from space after a minute. So unless you happen to crash while scramming frigs have you.. your ship will be fine.

EDIT: As to the wallet of bounties thing.. no. You have to kill the rat to get the bounty and they don't constantly spawn.. there are set numbers of spawns/rats.

And unfortuantely your drones won't e-warp, so when you warp back you'll most likely find your drones have been eaten, or will get eaten before you can go scoop them back. It's really not worth it, 10 mins at the keyboard will net you more than all day AFK!

To protect yourself against game crashes or surprise network outages, you'll want to fly a passive tank Drake or Rattlesnake.

As others have mentioned, once you kill all the ships in a mission, you don't get any more ships to blow up. So you could potentially leave your T2 sentry domi alone for an hour and come back to find an empty mission space, but leaving it alone all day won't get you any richer.

To make ISK faster, you need to be at the keyboard flying a gank-tank ship.

You want a passive rattler. Afk domi costs as much as the rattler if you want to afk big DPS, because you need expensive mods to get the domi to tank enough DPS. As far as bounty dont listen to anyone who hasn't done it. You get 5 mil a tick in a decently skilled RS or Domi. About half of what you get in a decent mission ship in the same missions.

PLAY THE ******* GAME OR GET THE **** OUT!

Seriously. This is a video game meant for entertainment. Nothing more, and nothing less. There is no such thing as grind, only your own short-sighted stupidity forces you to do something in Eve that you don't enjoy. If you're doing something that you do not enjoy, STOP DOING IT! You're supposed to be playing the game for your enjoyment, not to earn virtual money that is completely worthless to you if you're not PLAYING THE GAME!

Do you know what happens when you or some other ******* earns ISK without playing the game? You're adding to inflation of every item in the game. You're making it harder on every other player in the game to be able to access the different facets of Eve.

Eve is a game where you play with other people. It's a sandbox. Stop trying to be the ONLY KID IN THE SANDBOX! You're essentially on here asking other players how to earn access to more of the game without contributing to Eve by actually playing.

**** you.
