Today I tried to get a Hulk with a can flip but he wasn't buying it. So instead, figuring he was just really AFK, I methodically proceed over a ten minute period to flip ALL five of his cans. Then I destroyed them all.
Hundreds of thousands of Plag units up in the smoke.

Yes it did make me feel like a big man, thanks. Cool

Instead of blaming the developers perhaps you should just stop sucking at Eve?

As a jet-canning miner, I think this is awesome! I've been robbed of one can before, but never five. I usually get too skittish to go any further once I've floated my third can. Laughing

High sec stands for high security, and the last time I checked, high security meant a guard/police at every corner.

Problem: there are no corners in space.

Aside: your tears are delicious. Please, continue QQing.

You probably can flip in a Hulk or an Orca.

I've done this. I was in a grav site with my hulks/orca fleet when another hulk showed up and started jetcanning. I watched his can fill up and emptied it into my orca just as HIS corp's orca warped in.

They thought it would be a bright idea to send their drones after me, at which point I pulled my HAC out of MY orca and used it to kill THEIR orca. 15 minutes later, I was back to mining the grav site, only about 400 million isk richer from all the stuff the orca dropped.

if you want to be a pure miner, don't jetcan. Learn how to anticipate ganks and avoid them. Get an orca alt, or a corp with an orca.

Better yet, get some combat skills. With level 4 implants and a remap to perception/willpower, you can have PERFECT gunnery skills for any T2 small turret in less than 90 days, and that's from a completely untrained character.

I have a template character set up on my evemon that has a 190 day training plan to make a perfect (or near-perfect, I might have missed something) T1 frigate pilot, and from there it has all the support skills necessary so that you would simply train up new weapon and ship skills.

A six-year-old toon in a frigate is no more effective than a six-month-old toon if it's well-planned.

Eve is a cold harsh place, and as a miner you accept the fact that losers are going to come into the belt on steal your ore. ccp will never change this because there are more loser can flippers than there are miners willing to speak up and run the risk of getting located down and blown up. you have a couple choices, Run a second toon for hauling. Invite corp members to come join you at a belt. Give up your mining upgrades for cargohold expanders. Other than these you really dont have many choices unless you want to pack it in and unload it every 3 cycles. I do not take the can flipper sides but i have seen first hand what happens when you attack them, most dont want the ore they want you to pop them so they can come back and get a free hulk kill. your 250 mil hulk means more to them then their 25k bait frigate.

OMG if rats are bothering you when you are carebearing then you need to biomass, delete the client and go play WoW. I mean really? Belt rats? It's called Drones, or if your ship can't use drones, it's called missiles/guns. Defend yourself and quit noob mining in a freaking Iteron ffs.

It's worse enough that you have to deal with the rats in a asteroid belt, but also you worry about your stuff being stolen constantly.

Well I say no more; it should be a serious crime to can flip in a high sec region, and should be punishable by CONCORD by having the flipper get his ship destroyed.

If you shoot at another player's can, you get busted, well then so should stealing from a player's can get you the same way.

You wanna act like a pirate, go to low-sec, otherwise, keep your hands to yourself or pay the consequences.

Your a troll or a noob any miner worth his salt knows how not to get can flipped. Stop whining and stop giving the rest of us who know how to mine properly a bad name. Secure cans, indy alts orcas, hulks the tools are there to not be flipped use them and stop whining.

I would call this an epic fail fit on your end. You want to fight back, good for you, but learn from your mistakes.
1) Large armour reppers are not something you want to generally use in PvP, you want something that has lots of EHP. High resists, lots of armour or shields.
2) Don't forget to get a point on them
3) When you go into combat, consider your ship lost already, having it survive is a bonus.

If you can't tank the DPS of just drones attacking you, it's you that has failed. Not anyone else.

I know it's a crime; it's also a crime to try to blow up another can, whether it be a GSC or a simple jet can, and you get one shot off before you get CONCORD'd. So should thievery; you steal another stuff, you get CONCORD'd. Most your ore will be lost, but at least the flipper will have his ship wrecked.

And, I did try to retaliate, and I got blown up for it by the same guy who flipped my can.

High sec stands for high security, and the last time I checked, high security meant a guard/police at every corner. There should be a CONCORD ship at every belt in high sec; you flip a can, you get your **** blown sky high; end of can flipping in high sec.


Your tears. They please me and inflame my loins.

I figure next time I go out, I'll toss a smartbomb on my retriever, so the next time I get can flipped and I start shooting and he shoots back with drones, fire that SB up and decimate his drones. Yes I'll lose mine, but I'll just use T1's so it won't hurt my profits, cause I'm such a greedy bastard who likes to pollute the belts with his numerous amounts of cans.

CCP should create a new forum category for these kind of posts. Call it "lollin' at your delicious tears"

To me a hulk should never be in Hi sec. You deserve to lose it. You are stealing ore from the newbs coming into the game. Concord should ATT any hulk "Stealing" from newbs.

Can flipping is all part of the fun inthis game. I have lost a ship to it. Being a newb at the time. I learned the lesson.

I wouldn't mind this in 1.0 systems but system lower than that should not change.
