I haven't seen one in highsec in a very long time.

They used to (pre coldwar) show up pretty much everywhere 0.8 and lower I think.

aye they got rare, but they are still there, I have seen one a few days ago in 0.8. They aren't just worth it to stop my ship to take a podshot at them Evil or Very Mad

I know of at least 4 gates in tash-murkon area which have rat gate camps all the time. Small and just something to take pot shots at when your passing through. So .8 is the highest ive seen them.

they start to get more common in low sec .4 and below....but until you reach 0.0 they're lunchmeat Razz

Lol, now you mention it, I havent seen a set of guristas frigs on a gate that they used to always be on for a long time. I never noticed they had been removed Embarassed

I still remember when I was a noob 2 years or so ago picking up the loot from the cans they used to guard, and thinking I was uber Very Happy

I was assured that they no longer appeared by gates, then had my just-finished-autopiloting-while-I-was-AFK hauler blown up by them in a 0.5 about a year ago.

Most embarassing.

Fortunately, a kindly RA member was passing and saved my stuff, escrowing it back to me in the local station. Khyt(sp?), I still lub you for that.
