Only internet threats are dumber than grandiose villian evil scheme movie plots. I do particularly enjoy telling Mr Bond how I'm going to kill him as well...




Start the unnecessarily slow dipping mechanism!Twisted Evil

If you bought 20 hulk pilots ... well, you'd likely be reported as a botter. As for mining out all "my" ore in a system, well... we have an ingame mechanic with which to handle that too -> wardec (or suicide ganks...)

multipule accounts, whether you use them or just "buy" them and sell them, is not botting. CCP does not frown on multiboxing. now whether you have the power and personal multitasking skill to be able to run 20 accounts simultainiously is another story.

I know.

However, the guy mentioned something about buying 20 hulk pilots and mining out someone's "home" system.

single player running 20 accts simultaneously is liable to get a "HE'S A BOT!!!" response from players... hence my point Cool

I mine were I can find the stuff at. The thing is get into a retiver or a hulk as soon as you can make sure you have the drones for them to.

I thought maybe the first time I told my story some people would get it. But evidently, there are those who oppose every thing they read, because such is human nature.

I find no reason to continue further explaining my situation.

@OP Best way to make isk off mining is : don't ask, because we get **** on trying to explain it to you.

Ara --> we're all in the same boat as you. We want to get the ore before anyone else does (PvP if you willugh).

I seriously don't have jetcans/GSC/whatever on my overview, or brackets on my "mining" tab. Only place I have that stuff is on my "loot" settings... but since I'm mining (not looting)...

Half a belt missing sounds like it was probably a newer miner, who couldn't reach all that much... so plopped down where they could maximise their yields. Just happened to be by your cans, because that's why you put them there.

Based on your age, I'm betting you're just about in a retriever (or have recently gotten into it). Your next move is to get into a player corporation, who can help you out (Orca bonuses, haul for you, whatever). Once you do that, and can mine *with people*, your viewpoint will most likely change ...

Alternatively, I suppose your only option is to move out of the system you're in, and fine a quieter "home" system.

Heh, you set up 30 gscs in a belt and honestly didn't think you'd get trolled by the other miners? They probably couldn't even contain themselves with laughter. What a waste. I think I stopped using them when I was still in a mining cruiser, as they just were not worth the waste of time. Take the risk of having your can flipped and just jetcan mine -- for the occasional loss you'll save huge amounts of time. A free container that can hold up to 27,000 m^3 vs paying for thirty containers that only hold three thousand or so a piece? I cannot even comprehend the pain of picking up the cargo from so many cans, not to mention going through the slow process of placing that many cans to begin with.

+1

GSCs are a waste of time. You lose more minerals on a consistent basis having to manage the GSCs (move to them, load each one, etc), than getting the occasional can of ore flipped.

I had an urge to do some hisec mining yesterday, even though I didn't have my full mining fleet available. Still, I mined over 87 million with what I had, completely stripping a belt in the process. Orca + Hulk (normally 2 but this time just one) + Bustard

Ya, I could have made more doing missions, but I wasn't in the mood for that.
