Right, well I jump into 0.4 with a Raven I'm not really wanting to loose and a tanked up Dominix which I doubt I could challenge as I'm in the stage I can pilot Battleships, but not really have sufficent PVP skills in it. I'm the default 15km from the gate after jumping in, and have about 20 seconds to decide what to do before the cloak wears off. I immediately head for the gate and convo the pilot and he asks a ransom of 50 mill, which for a Raven I thought was acceptable. I paid 27 million of it (all I had at the time) and all he saw was his wallet blinking which I assume he took to mean the 50 mil. IN the time he was taking to check that, I managed to jump through.

So, pay 1 isk, make them check their wallet and use that vital 3 or so seconds to get to the gate and jump.

No doubt all gatecampers will now keep their wallets open when attemping this but just thought I'd mention it Very Happy

Umm... thanks for the 27M

Laughing

The "gatecamp" was just me and I hadn't planned on agroing you as I was simply waiting to jump in the system.

Hopefully more people will take your advice and pay ransoms they dont need to. Good job!

Well... I dont think its such a good advice as it would get you blown up after the guy/s doing the ransom discover this.

Pay full ransom or risk it, you could even try to stall for time, but.... in any case.... very good yarr on the "pirate" part! RazzTwisted Evil

Should have let him agro you. A lone domi pilot isn't gonna do too much damage with the sentries popping all his drones.

Embarassed The caps were assembled to fight 8 carriers in a system near by...but when we jumped in, 7 docked and 1 got BBQ'd.

So they were all pumped up with nothing to fight, and then we spotted you guys having fun on the gate.

Sorry for gatecrashing Razz

Tell that to the manticore I popped at a gate using T1 light drones and left me a shadow serp sb, cov-ops cloak (cargo) and 15m in other assorted loot.

I lost one light drone and got loot worth more than my domi and its t1 fitting at the time.Razz

Ogres can survive fine at gates, you just have the annoying scoop/deploy to do over and over.


Now tanking sentries and a torp rave with good skills is another matter entirely.Confused

Thats the state of EvE atm I guess - nothing to appologies for but if you insist actions speak louder than words - you can contract me a share of the loot and nothing more will be said on the matter.Twisted Evil

Damn I miss the huge open warfare we used to have in high sec. Roll on faction warfare, it will give me a reason to clean my sec - I hope.

Carebear jumps into losec system and sees a lone semi-afk flashy on the gate, freaks out and transfers everything in his wallet.

Why don't these things ever happen to me?!?!

To be honest, now that you mention it, I would have to go as far and say that pods have more hp than a manti.Twisted Evil

I don't know what to say.
Oh well, here it goes.
You are ... i can't even say it.
Your level of stupidity is beyond imagination.
If you want to move a ship like that through even low-sec gatecamps - most of them anyway, you need to fit it right.
In lows put all WCS, in mids put 1-2 heavy cap injectors, 100mn MWD and in the rest a tank.
And if you had any brains, you would have gotten away from the Dominix no problem.
If the guy was going to engage you, his drones would have been OMGWTFPWND by the sentries, and without them i doubt he would of had enough DPS to kill you in a reasonable ammount of time.
