Henceforth, there shall be a restraining order between the parties of: the acronym "AFK" and the various synonyms of the word "Cloak".

These two distinct and separate words are not to be used within 3 words of each other, as they are too often associated together in a negative connotation.

Should anyone from this day forth use "AFK" too closely followed by "Cloak(er/s)" they will be assessed a 1mil ISK fee.


If players have a problem with Cloaks, first realize they are the proper game mechanic to counter Probes. The ability to hide is not a problem, it is a valid tactic.

If players have a problem with other players being (A)way (F)rom their (K)eyboards, perhaps because those unattended computers will gain sentience and kill someone... said paranoid care bears need to embrace the spirit of Eve Online, coming to realize the only safe place is while docked in a station.

There are far too many threads attempting to complain about players Cloaking somewhere and then going AFK for hours. While there is a strange face staring at you in Local, that does not mean you are physically prevented from acting in the game.

So quit your crying, and play the game! And stop making new threads! Each has 200 responses, and less than 10 votes of support. This should say something about the public opinion.

You need to at least know what you are talking about before making threads like this one.

You're absolutely right.

I haven't seen the thousands of threads b!tching over Cloaked ships being in system, and the pilots being AFK for hours.

And I certainly don't know what it's like to wonder if there's hostile forces lurking in the system with you... oh wait, I live in a WH. And we don't have the luxury/crutch of Local chat to tell us when someone new is around.

So once again, suck it up and play the game. =)

Offensive? I basically reversed what you said so perhaps you should stop being a hypocrite. Also this isn't a discuss AFK cloaking thread, why don't you go continue to cry more in the 2 current ones and leave this thread for people who are petitioning to ban discussion of AFK Cloaking from clueless wimps.

I'm anti-extremism so I can't support this. If indeed the op was
serious, which I truly doubt. But I had my giggle anyway. Thanks for that.

But I do agree that most whiners whine without thinking. But you really can't blame them too much. At least they are better than the SP for MT crowd. Which are truly whiners who I wish would leave the game.

I think that null sec miners should htfu, but at the same time I can see the benefit of a system where cloakers can be countered. Like the uboats of WWII. At first they ruled, but later on anti-Uboat tech got to a point where they could not operate with the impunity that they did at the onset of the war. This is progress. And it makes sense.

Yes, AFK cloakers aren't a problem. They aren't playing the game, they aren't a threat to me.

I've always suspected the complainers are botters, and their bot program docks up when someone unknown comes into system. So you can see why an AFK cloaker could ruin their fun....

Its funny, people in null are so scared of cloakers, had my buddy in his cloaky ship go out to a null-sec region and just start buggering around in local, the carebears were so scared to undock he invited me to come out and mine for a while.

3 hours in low-sec with a retreiver, never saw a single eprson undock.
