the mission is level 3, its serpentis extravaganza!!

i was throught last gate there are about 4 of them, i had destroyed almost all serpentis and was about to turn attention to the commander (the mission objective) when `gronos` a pirate who killed me the other day appeared 49km from me. i nearly had a heart attack but luckily myself and my hurricane were far enough away to escape.

how did this happen??
is it a bug??
its ruining my mission its not safe to return while hes there

thanks in advance


ps heres the local chat log after i escaped...

IIRC, you can be scan probed in Deadpace, but it's more difficult than probing someone down normally, so he was either lucky like he said, or had some skills invested in Astrometrics, Triangulation and Pinpointing.

So it's likely he used a recon probe to find you.

It's more likely that he found your drones than you (but where there are drones, there are people). Unless something's changed, they're easier to find than your actual ship is.

But yeah, he would have had to probe you down, there's no other way unless he's in the habit of microwarp driving in random directions for hours at a time, and just so happened to MWD onto one of your mission's gates.

It's pretty easy to scan down someone's drones, even when they're in a deadspace complex. Also, if you have a heavy shield tank on it makes you much easier to find as well due to the increase to your signature radius.

You still have 2 things going for you. 1) He's gotta fly from gate-to-gate just like you did, he can't come in right on top of you and 2) He won't be able to use a MWD while in the deadspace any more than you can, so he'll be restricted to Afterburners for speed. Just make sure you move away from the warp-in point ASAP when you go missioning and you should be fine. Just be wary if you are in the habit of ending the mission and going back to loot. He could always bookmark a wreck in the first or second room and lay in wait for you there.

thhanks guys, i guess he did then.
yeah well i thought probes but i thought if it was that easy why dont people do it all the time, so i guess he was lucky
he came back again when i returned and again was 50km away wheras i thought with probes u couldland on top of people.

oh and yeah i did have drones out, i left em and they were gone when i returned :O(


guess ill be more careful on missions in future

ps i wasnt sheild tankin it was hurricane, but hurricane are bc`s so sigs pretty high anyway, thanks for advice

If he keeps doing it.....set up your ship to kill HIM, and wait for him to show up...

Find an agent in high sec. They are plenty of good ones.
