First of all thanks for reading my post...Now that the pleasantries are out of the way.....LETS BEGIN. Why is it that this game allows gangs of people to camp on gates and destroy unknowing ships. I don't mind PvP combat and I understand the game is built on it, but it's a real drag whenever you warp into a sector and there are four ships waiting to tackle, scram, and flat out obliterate you. I think that the makers of this game should install platform guns at all gates leading into and out of a security sectors. Not all sectors of course but the ones in 0.4 to 0.1, in 0.0 space its supposed to be "outlaw" space so no guns are needed. Even if you don't want to put guns at these locations at least prevent hostilities at these points...It almost made me quit the game the first time I lost a Myrmidon BattleCruiser due to a group of gate camping thugs. In closing if you want more players to quit then keep on letting guys camp gates and see how many would be paying customers you will continue to lose...

all I can think is not very elite or stealthy if you struggle to sneek past 4 people on a gate

I'm ambivalent on the proposal itself. I'm more inclined to think that Low Security space should be made more profitable, but not less dangerous.

In the meantime, however, for Low Security travel, I recommend flying either a fast-aligning frigate, a ship capable of fitting a "Covert Ops Cloaking Device II", or forming a fleet with a friend you trust who goes through the gate first and tells you what's on the other side (commonly called a "scout"). Your friend should be flying a fast-aligning frigate or a ship that's fit with a "Covert Ops Cloaking Device II".

It work both ways.
If gate camping will be impossible abt same qtty of pilots leave. (i am not saying i like them, but...)
Btw Myrmydone can tank a lot of damage if fitted right, if you have some friends following you it may work other way around for gate campers.

If you want to move around lowsec solo - use interceptor, covertops, recon, transport & alike...

Im gonna have to disagree with you on this one. I personally love the fact that there is no safe place in EVE.

BTW there are guns on gates from 1.0 to 0.1

Duel or triple rep Myrm can have an absolute beast of a tank. You get jumped on a gate, just don't agress and run back to the gate. Myrms are slow (especially when webbed) but unless its a big camp you should be able to get back to the gate ok, and ofc the agressors then wont be able to jump through after you. Or if its low sec and your tank is holding, just point them and watch as the glorious gate guns of much victory give you some free kills. ;)

This is dependant on you being PvP fit of course. If you aren't then don't cry emo tears if you get popped in low sec. If you dont want 'Thugs' then low sec really isnt a place you want to travel to. Twisted Evil
