"Well before, theives could steal from miners without any risk at all, and absolutely no opportunity for retaliation. All thats changed now is that the miner can *choose* to shoot at him, or can *choose* to let him get away with it exactly as before.

Sounds good to me."

The above quote is an example of perfect thinking. The quote below just confuses the hell out of me.

"Bah! it's too easy...nothing beats the excitement of watching scanners constantly for incoming haulers that don't belong to you, and then have you scramble to get your hauler and get to your ore before the thief! Those were the days where mining was worth doing!"

It's too easy? What do you mean? Just as haulers used to be able to swoop in from space and steal your ore and then warp out in again, they STILL CAN NOW. Whats more, you can have cloaked buddies present who try to stop him. *AND/OR* -HE- can have cloaked buddies waiting around to destroy YOU. If it was complex and fun before, its only mroe so now. Miners now have the ***OPTION*** to fight back, whereas before they did not. I totally totally totally do not get your logic AT ALL. (It's because there is no logic.) More options, nothing at all lost from before, same tactics can be used, and more have been added as well.


Reading Comprehension skills a bit rusty? He's saying that NOW it's too easy compared to before. BECAUSE of the suggestions you made. Before your only option/hope was to get your hauler to the can before theirs. (Actually there was a trick you could use, which still works, to preven them from getting the ore.)


What he said..there was and is a lot of tricks you can apply to stop an ore thief from getting to your ore.

imagine an ore thief in an Ibis
imagine a Covetor with Hobgoblin 2's

then he went boom.
it was my choice to blow up the Ibis.

I understand that ore thiefs have changed tactics
they bait you with a wimpy ship and then the gang members
swoop in to kill you.

so I went to the station and jumped in the Istar and waited for the retailiation.
all he said in local was Kill rights after the podding.
He is not showing on my character sheet. Does he have kill rights?

Nope
He agresssed you. Not the other way around.
Not a very bright ore thief... but since I consider ore thieves lowlife scumbags I'll not post how he SHOULD have done this in order to be able to pop you.

In my opinion there are certain systems that are worse for these occurrences than others. If you find you are being robbed by a battleship, let him have it and move systems. Be wily and stay one step ahead of the thieves; it's what many species do to stay ahead of predators.


Or maybe just use secure cans...? Neutral


Never mined have you. Rolling Eyes A secure can cant hold a single cycle of my miner.

What they need to put in the game is what they already have out there and thats the secure cans that hold 100k they exist just not live.


Err... what ship would you deploy your 100k secure can from?
IMO you shouldn't be allowed to add to jetcans, that would slow down a lot of macro mining ops without killing the flavor that ore thieves provide.

My ceo got an ore snitcher using a gank-a-covetor. Another thing you can do is mine in a domi or geddon. Have friends, a hauler, etc.

Adapt and get them next time.
