Ok so I was mining away in a site and this stealth bomber called Milo warps in on top of me and his squad warped in right behind him. I warped off before they could kill me, so I still have my ship. I warped to our pos and sat there for a bit but then Milo shows up outside the pos I was hiding in and they just sat outside the shields waiting for me to kill me.

After several weeks of being tormented by Milo and the his thugs we gave up and found a better wormhole to move to. So we went on a mission to move systems as covert as possible. Cloaky cloaky transports, and eventually we got our pos all set up in the new wormhole. Moving into this new wormhole was the best thing we could have done, there were many more sites to mine in and I was doing great.

Or so I thought. After we were completely settled in I was mining away on a omber rock and guess who comes out of the shadow of the omber... You guessed it, Milo. He must have followed us through the wormhole when we moved. We tried to be so careful! Weeks on end, YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! He never never says anything, never uncloaks, and he is always following me.

PLEASE HELP!

I suggest you try dieing horribly!

If that doesn't work try having a PVP ship shadow you and take this person out!

You do realize that Milo might be extracting delicious carebear tears from this thread.
It's like blood for a shark, sends them into a feeding frenzy.

Further more, why are you MINING in a Wormhole system, seriously where are you hauling the ore to?
0.0 has better roids any way.

So you think if I get a bigger ship he will go away? I'll try that, thank you for the advice.

Normaly I say paranioa is a good thing but perhaps you should take a break from this game seeing phantom ships and all.

5/10.

Nice troll.

Everyone knows there's no Omber in W-Space. Razz (is there, never bothered looking)

Have you filed a petition for stalking? Maybe Milo likes you, and is just too shy to come out and say hi.

Ok, I got myself a Brutix class battle cruiser. Hopefully it chases that Milo and his dirty gang away. But I will have to save that for later because I'm tired now...

You just HAD to add the "never uncloaks" thing, did you ? Minus two points. Also minus half a point for Omber.

Here is some advice:

If people are sitting outside your FF at your POS I'd have to ask if your defenses are setup properly? Granted they could be sitting out of range. I don't know.

Second, when we first moved to our hole our POS setup screamed NOOB and we came under extortion attempts several times within the first month. We spent a lot of time reading about POS defense modules and their setups, bought more, rearranged their placement and so far, 2 months later, no more extortion attempts. We had a cov-ops in our system for almost one month before we completed our changes. Everyday the cloaker would chide us and attempt to extort. After the changes were completed the cloaker left.

You can determine if a cloaker is still in your system. If you know who it is then go to empire to a locator agent that you have access to and run a query on his/her location. If you don't have one, get one of the highest agent quality possible. Their quality determines how far out they search to find whomever. My agent can find people even in wh's.

Use Dotlan maps to determine the number of jumps in/out of your system. This will give you some idea of the numbers of people coming through.

Manage your WH's. If you have no need to travel outside of your wh system then when you scan down a new wh DO NOT WARP TO IT. As long as you do not warp to a new wh it will not open an exit to where ever it leads. Those that are open, close them. This is trick and requires you know how much mass can travel through the WH's that you identify. For instance a A239 will allow a BS to traverse it about 19-20 times before it collapses. Be prepared to be trapped on the otherside so fit probes and a cloak so you can find a way out.

Hope this helps. BTW, if you're interested we are looking for additional members to our WH corp. If you guys are having a tough time of it we'd be willing to take on, as members, one or more of your people to train with us or incorporate your corp into our own. If you might be interested in learning more, contact me in game.

Are you sure? I allways thought scanning a WH will open it. As long as nobody scans for new wormholes they dont pop up?

How do you determine if a wormhole is open without warping to its sig and having a look where it leads?

Yeah right. If you don't scan and fly to the wormhole inside w-space it won't open to the other side, especially not to k-space.. LOL

Ya know, the OP was just trolling, but you Domoso.. *facepalm*

Shocked

Please god don't tell me you have the brutix armor tanked, blaster fit and with medium drones otherwise thats just a kill mail waiting to happen against a bomber. If it's just keeping a bomber away you'd be better off in an interceptor.

Even if it's the bomber leading a gang in at least the ceptor might has a chance of killing the bomber and get out.

Are you sure you're ready to be playing in wormholes?

I would bait him out with a friend in a PVE ship then warp in, You need to catch him!

For this a sensor boosted Myrm with a long point, and a Dual Reppair tank. Add a Nuets and if you can medium Autocannons and Warrior II's!

The Brutix is better for Heavy DPS on a medium sized Target!

If you were to use a brutix to bait a bomber you could try something like this. It's untest and isn't designed for moving but if the bomber falls for it, comes in for the bombing run then tries to get a disrupt on you you may be able to oneshot it, the blasters should still do damage at around 35km with my skills though will losts of misses and poor damage but bombers are pretty fragile.

Personally I think there are better bait ships but not sure many bombers would expect a brutix to be much of a problem. Still an interesting exercise in theory crafting.
