Trying to figure out a way to deal with neutral reppers, theres 2 that are currently causing problems in our war dec, they are npc corped and pop out in battleships to do remote repping, they are alts obviously, they fit for pure rep no tank, and what often happens is we save neuts and some dps wait for them to engage and neut/dps them but they just dock up instantly and come back out rinse repeat, and in doing so dps is focused off the targets and we end up loosing ships in the long run, we can spam neuts but they just use cap boosters etc...has anyone found a good counter to these neutral reps?

also obviously I'm not posting as my real char..

Stop fighting on stations, it's fail any way you look at it. Bait them out with a mission running raven or something. Neutral RR can't dock if it's tackled out in space.

Why not simply jam them? That way you don't have to waste neuts or DPS on them and who cares how long they stay undocked at that point.

Because they run lots of eccm in mid slots that aren't using cap boosters as well, usually it's a hyperion or rokh doing it.

On the off the station thing, they usually have a couple ships with near insta lock so trying to get out of the station in order to even set that up is a pain, but I think we figured out a solution to that just they probably won't bother probing us out they will just sit on station since were primairly a missioning corp

Bump the neutral BS with a MWD cyclone away from station or person there RR'ing. Bump hard and often and get web and scram on him then finish up your WT'S. If the BS hasnt made it back docking range by that time burn him Twisted Evil

Two things:
1) Station fights usually only result in kills when people take risks or by stupid mistakes. War targets usually avoid risks and it sounds like these guys know their stuff, so they are less likely to make mistakes. The chance of actually having a good fight is small. So your goal for station games shouldn't be to kill ships, it should be to keep them from operating normally (running missions, trading, etc). If your goal is to kill ships, don't fight on stations.

2) The fact that the reppers are initially neutral is irrelevant. As soon as their ships start repping your targets, they become targets, so it doesn't matter if they are NPC corp characters or not. It just becomes a numbers game, where you should add the number of neutral reppers to the numbers of war targets. And if you cannot handle the total number, choose not to fight.

So? Use more and higher powered ECM.
