creating unacceptable levels of server lag


Many sov wars have been won by deliberately lagging. Has to be a game mechanic, otherwise CCP would still be sorting out the refunds since IT was roundly lagged out of Fountain.

High sec is not 100% safe, this was perfectly acceptable.

Join a wormhole corp or get access to some 0.0 ore, you'll make back the hulk in a few days.

edit: never fly what you can't afford to lose...

We are digressing here, but there is total a difference between blobbing the grid with your 1000 man fleet, and dropping excessive bubbles/ cans/ drones soley for the purpose of creating lag for an advantage.

Why would you be mining for ISK to do PvP.

1. Different skill set.
2. Mission running nets more ISK and it uses the same skill set as PvP.

So sorry but your story is NOT adding up.

Does it take a year to get into a hulk? Shocked I can't remember it's been so long. Good God man, mining in a retriever for a year? Bless your heart.. Shocked

Oh, the "I mine to fund my pvp ships" is what they all say. Me included. Back when I mined, before it finally drove me utterly insane. Then I discovered something called "fishing" in real life.. sitting for hours on a dock instead of mining pixel roids, getting sun and enjoying the salt air.

But I digress.
I believe he didnt have any tank on his hulk and smartbomb is quikc way to kill retrievers and mackinaws hell u can do it in arty thrahsers
OP, how did you get popped in high sec? I've heard tell of it, but in way too many years of mining you know it's never once happened to me.

Did you get can flipped? If so, that is your fault.

The above poster is correct, you can avoid this problem by fitting a tank. It's expensive, basically a nullsec fit. But honestly.. you're mining highsec.. is this common now? It's not hulkageddon atm.

Anyhow OP.. you're obviously trolling.. if you're not, then just suck it up. Plat insurance covers more than half of the hulk (if I recall correctly). If you can't bear to work back up to a hulk then stop crying and buy a plex. In my day, we didn't have plex -- we had to walk uphill in the snow, both ways, to recover our losses.

You want to hear sad? One of my old carebear friends, a real life girl, she worked so hard played by the rules and the culmination of her eve career was getting into a freighter. She got popped second day, going for a sweet mineral deal in .4.

And you know what? She didn't complain. She didn't cry on the forums. She took it like a man -- her only fault was that she'd just never PVP'd, she just didn't appreciate the risk. I think she quit soon after that.. I still feel bad for her, I don't care if she was a nerd I respected how hard that girl worked. And she was *honest*, you could trust her and that's golden in Eve.

She was a friend, I should have helped her replace that freighter. Anyhow OP your loss was minor and it's part of the game.. why are you crying.. man up.

YARRRR!!
