I an guilty of AFK cloaking.

I do it when I'm ratting for sec status.
I do it when I'm at war with a superior force (usually in low sec so they get blown up looking for me).
I do it when I want to kill people and need them to lower their gaurd.
I do it when people are hanging out where I want to hang out
Infact I do it as much as I can.

I can understand your whining but if there is a "AFK cloaker in your system just jump to the one next door and carry on if he doesn't follow you, you win if he does then jump sombody back through and drop the biggest freaking bubble on the best interceptor pilot you have. Of course if he follows you he isn't really AFK is he? Like wise you can leave a cloaky combat probe alt behind which will make him think there is a target about and keep him cloaked while your off having fun.

Also I don't get why you have the damage mod idea or the needs fuel idea? How many dockable stations do you think there are in null? All you would need to combat afk cloaking is a cycle timer
It would last for 15 minuts and start flashing and making noise 20 sec before you decloak if you hit it before the time was up you would stay cloaked for another 15 minutes. AFK clockers would then appear while I would have to pause my Netflix and reset the damn timer. Evil or Very Mad

This is the next point. Why you can benefit to stay AFK for a week ready to attack someone when the guard is lower and be safe all the time? Why a AFK pilot can live in enemy territory without the possibility of being expelled? If I have the sovereignty of a system should have the right to hunt (or try to) the enemy. Remember that a AFK pilot is an ALT. Your main pg are playing in other place.. my main pg are waiting your alt. Players Versus Alts.

Zero for a pirate. Infact a pirate should go to null sec.. kill those who want to.. and then GO BACK HOME and not live forever in enemy territory.

Here's where you go wrong. You have the "right" to nothing. Especially not in null-sec. Even the cloaker doesn't have the "right" to kill someone. The onus is on BOTH parties to be more prepared and clever than the other one using what resources they have available.

For the cloakers... their strength is that they cannot be probed down. If they get into a system they can bide their time and wait til someone does something stupid (like fly a lightly tanked PVE gank-battleship with T1 drones).
Their weaknesses are that their ship will not stand up very well in a straight fight against a ship fitted with the proper defenses and that their target might have friendly ships nearby to assist.

For the "defenders"... their strengths are that they can effectively deny entry into the system in the first place using bubbles and gatecamps, they have a wealth of friendly ships in system that can assist when needed, they have a station and/or POS to refit or swap their ship anytime they wish, and they can actually do something productive with their time rather than just wait.
What weaknesses I can potentially see on the part of the defenders are (but not limited to); not having anyone online to assist (in which case, that person should consider beefing up their ship's point defenses)... and... ummm... uhh... running a bit of blank here. From where I stand, the defenders have most of the advantages except that they have one red "blip" in the local chat.

Just an answer: 0.0 should be safe for nobody, right? So, if you wanna stay AFK and safe.. go back to empire!
The rules should apply to everyone.


I completely agree, also please remove POS shields and stations in nulsec! Why should you be safe in them?

They should just get rid of local. That way you will have no way of knowing the cloaker is even there and it won't freak you out.

Why should 0.0 ever be safe?


Exactly, The AFK Lurker has no risk. Why should the AFK lurker get to threaten the entire system all day long at NO RISK?

Random decloaks would restore some balance to the currently RISKLESS lurking threat strategy.

Thank you,

Aramis Rosicrux

At the same time there is no reward so there is nothing wrong with the low risk.


That the case there is reward reward:
Rewards:
1. Intel with ships with pilots fly its allready bots hoo colect such info true afk cloucked alts.
2. risk free kils, he can declouck eny given time and lounch a cov ops cyno (after a week bean afk) and he donr haveeven slite risk to get popt thos seconds itsn ot inaf with you have when you see him declock by you.
3. loot from kils.

so its inaf rewards to atleast nerf that risk free cloucking.

In null-sec with sovereignty, the owners should have a exlusive intelligence system against intruders. Intruders should not have access to it. This would make sense. I know that saying this, many pirates weep.
Null-sec is not anarchy. Null-sec is NO-CONCORD, security driven by players.. and sovereignty should provide the tools to keep itself.

How about cloaking devices have a 'heat' type problem, reduced by skill levels in cloaking. So a prototype cloak will overheat in about 20 minutes and will switch off until cooled (only a minute or two), a T2 claok will ovgerheat in an hour and a cov ops will stay cool for a good few hours, that way the cloaked person can still stay safe when they are playing (even an overheated cloak isnt a problem as you can just warp safe to safe for a few minutes while it cools off, tehn recloak) but it does demand that players actually play the game to cause disruption.

I am not against disruption by players, just against any disruption that can be caused while you arnt even actualy playing, or maybe not even home...

I agree. This was my solution n2. Heat Problem or Charge are 2 simple solution that don't damage Cloacked Ships if played activly (and a macro can't avoid). Those who are against this, has its own dirty interests to be AFK in enemy territory.

so in other words, even attackers aren't allowed to come into your system? and how does an afk cloaker kill someone? sounds like it's u who wants risk-free 0.0 because u don't want anyone at all to attack u or your system.

and they still haven't explained how one person who isn't even doing anything "terrorizes" everyone in the system. all i hear is nothing but qq about risk while they think they're entitled to easy isk without having to maintain it; they just don't want to admit it. Laughing

Aramis Rosicrux hits the point!
Why an AFK player can be safe in 0.0?
Cloacking devices nerfing solve this imbalance.
If you are against nerfing, it means that your role is to be an AFK cloaker in enemies territories and get paid to do it.
Or you are the picker of this activity.
Scared to lost your job?
Aramis hit no points at all. It was just more senseless and emotional ranting, without any logical basis.

Cloaking is already balanced, what you are asking for is imbalance. You want more intel power and the ability to blob.

Local is your problem, not cloaks.

I am a witness of a pirate corp paid to stay in Branch, during the War of Northern Coalition.
The purpose was to be AFK 24h/day (sometimes attack capital ship opening a cyno for a Titan or normal ships with Marauders) to prevent the activities of mining and block the production of ships and weapons. The pirates themselves inform us of their purpose and the fact that they were paid.

AFK cloacker is a subdole job commissioned by enemy alliance to reduce, obstruct and block the production chain.

So they did attack while AFK? Shocked

Seriously though, what you describe sounds like the sandbox is working perfectly there.

One question though, since pirates are usually very reasonable people as soon as you wave ISK in front of their faces, why didnt you just pay them to stay AFK all the time?

This thread shows me how amazingly lazy most 0.0 carebears are. Let me get this straight...
You are in a system full of blues, and one or two reds who are cloaked, and there so much fear in your heart to use the word terrorism. LMFAO! Laughing
How about using the your blues as tools and maybe watch some gates, run some scans. If they arent around they are most likely a bomber... one freaken bomber. LMFAO Thats some serious fear tactics... laughable. Laughing
Are all your blues in mining barges? If so, please give out your system so the real players can have some entertainment at your expense. Laughing
I thought strength came in numbers, and thats how you survive in 0.0, or EVE all together? I guess not when all the blues are just typical lazy carebears wanting more iskies, and not having to risk anything to attain it. Rolling Eyes
Learn tactics, learn strategy, utilize the tool of your alliance, and most of all stop whinning like a baby that got his sucker taken away. Cool

I like #2 because for active players there is no bad surprise when the crystal pops, you can have a general idea how long you have because it resets at each repair.

#1 would screw people who didn't deserve it by having them become visible in situations where even a few seconds is death. It is really hard to judge the life of crystals that don't repair because the use is added up over many uses. It could blow out after 5 mins because you used it "X hours and 55 minutes" the week before.

So basically you are angry because your enemies took the time to read and then follow the teachings of great strategists like sun Tzu, Carl von clauswitz, Yamamoto etc.
While instead of adapting and practicing the same, chose to use the; cling to what worked in the past and cry about change strategy? like an old man crying about how much coffee used to cost back in 1902? That's a pretty sure sign that your on your way out. Move over gramps the next generation is here. Razz

Zero for a pirate. Infact a pirate should go to null sec.. kill those who want to.. and then GO BACK HOME and not live forever in enemy territory.


Back home? 0.0 is far more hospitable to a pirate then low sec!
Think about it... Theres no gate guns... There is however, carebears...ratters...missioners...site runners in crappy fit tengu's looking for wh to farm.
I never see carebears and hardly ever see missioners in low sec, and low sec t3's are usually geared much more towards PVP since they can gate hug.

And no the number isn't 0 there are a few NPC stations scattered about that you can repair and set your clone to. some stations even have decent markets. There just aren't enough to make your idea anything other than a logistical nightmare.

And by the way when your flashy red home is wherever you freakin say it is, and all space is enemy territory.Shocked

I think you have to read better.
I wrote to go back home after a pirate mission in null-sec.
Login -> travel in null sec -> stai cloaked waiting your victim -> kill -> reapet -> after X hour go back in low sec to recharge your cloaking device module -> travel in null sec again.
I do not think to ask for a modification that kills piracy.

How about using the your blues as tools and maybe watch some gates, run some scans. If they arent around they are most likely a bomber... one freaken bomber. LMFAO Thats some serious fear tactics... laughable. Laughing
Are all your blues in mining barges? If so, please give out your system so the real players can have some entertainment at your expense. Laughing
I thought strength came in numbers, and thats how you survive in 0.0, or EVE all together? I guess not when all the blues are just typical lazy carebears wanting more iskies, and not having to risk anything to attain it. Rolling Eyes
Learn tactics, learn strategy, utilize the tool of your alliance, and most of all stop whinning like a baby that got his sucker taken away. Cool



So you wil be that ho wil sit 23/7 on the gate for month. and wil not go eat sleap to work att all. They to not stupid like you hoo will declouck if i nsytem meny blues and atack some one they will terorize neber hud un til wil be left only couple ppl and some one will make stupid move like start rating.

I can tell only one ting afk siting need to be nerfed, wie trued everitng agens them maked flet seted baits of day and day when wie already started to tik so he logs in probably boting just intel after 1 day he decloucked and atacks our member, so thet rater was dead in coule seconds and was shot bu 30 recons and 5 Bleck opses.

I see that you nver was in sych situation or yopu dont live in sov 0.0 space if so even dont speek you dont understand a **** baout you taliking.

I live in WH space now so I am rather ambivilant to the issue but...

I would say that if cloaking needs to be changed then don't change it to make it easier on ratters and miners...change it because being AFK and cloaked can yield a tactical advantage using fear on the locals without actually playing the game.

AFK cloaking is the ONLY activity that can be done while AFK without the use of a macro that yields any kind of tactical advantage in game. For that reason alone I would say there is an issue...but cloaking itself is not broken.

That said I would say a better fix would to just add in a afk timeout like every other MMO has. If you have not entered any NEW input within a certian period of time...say 15 minutes...then the character is logged out. Yes a macro can bypass this...but that is another problem in which CCP needs a decent macro detection method and enforce it.

My point is we should not ruin a perfectly good working system just to fix another problem.

Everythink in eve has its ballance at some point. And simply afk cloaking has no penalties. AFK cloaker will achieve all his objectives that he has setup as goal and in return he doesnt need to do any effort from his side.

For example a scammer or corp thief which have nearly similar objectives to steal and disrupt. They need to put lot of personal effort to keep it going on other hand cloaker who just provides intel and maybe cyno hot drop doesnt risk anythink on his game level.
