I guess I don't understand how the gate security works. I was in .4 and I wanted to gank this frig, but I didn't realize about the sentry guns Embarassed

When do the carebear guards end?

You should fit warp core stabs, it confuses the gate guns. They won't be able to hit you.

You can trust me, I'm totally legit.

Fit Warp Core Stabilizers. They also prevent other players from touching you but make the sentry guns miss you.

Remember tho, you need 1 WCS / point of scramble if people want to kill u.

The two posters above are lying to you. I mean for the first one, just look at his name. Then look at what they are saying. Warp stabs have nothing to do with sentries attacking you.

Obviously in High-sec you get Concord dealing with you fairly quickly and decisively. In low security systems 0.4 to 0.1, if you aggress at a gate or station, you have to deal with sentries shooting you. Once you hit 0.0 (null sec) you can attack whoever you like whenever you like with no sentries to trouble your frigate or whatever you were in Cool Of course there are other considerations in null sec like bubbles, bombs and camps using interceptors / Dramiels but thems the breaks.

Wiki page on sentry guns.

Of course if you are confident you can kill your prey and GTFO before sentries pummel you then go for it. I recently shot a noob ship AFK at a gate, partly because why not and partly to test my tank vs sentries since I hadn't flown a hawk before... He popped, I got out, the lossmail had an Orca BPC that didn't drop YARRRR!!

How much did you pay for Spank? You are ruining her bad reputation.

in a .4 you have plenty of time to gank a frig before sentries kill you. Just use a BC or a HAC. Anything smaller and those sentries hurt a little too much.

Best way to learn is to take a Heretic, and go shoot a random cyno frigate at a station. It will teach you everything you need to know. After that you should also be able to remember to doublecheck system security before engaging next time.. if you're lucky you might even be trolled about it by goonswarm, pretending to be the alliance executor, on the killboards.

TL;DR
Just do it™

Confirming the best (funniest) reason to train dictors is so you can shoot cyno alts.

The best is killing AND podding afk cyno alts near stations. I'm sure the jumper cursed up a storm when he found out his alts clone activated 70 jumps away. Lulz.

Doesn't work if it's a tanked cyno Kestrel, and you engage outside your Heretic's optimal with lasers.. and you forget it's 0.1, not 0.0..

Since I noticed it a couple of days ago, I can't stop staring at your chin sticking out of the shadows ever so slightly.
