Last night’s roam wasn’t the best we’ve ever had. It was decided we were to do a full Syndicate roam to see if anyone noticed my post headline yesterday.Well, in short, we got blobbed as two gangs were out and seemed pretty determined to extract our pods from our ships. Our numbers were a meagre 12 and did not have the firepower to take on 30. If we had more we would have gone for it but we had to make a hasty retreat. This was simple enough as our ships were a lot faster than theirs but we didn’t get far when we encountered another gang of a similar size. Our FC lost his Vagabond as there was too much DPS to take before he could make his way back to the gate. So we ran. Again. Our epic stats read 0 kills, 2 losses. Ah well, better times to be had.
On Friday, some of us set up a camp on a low-sec/high-sec gate junction and wave after wave of cloaky haulers came through which was a little disappointing. Before you lot start slating gate camping, it’s all I can do when I’m at work! Anyhow, one of us came up with a brain wave to stop the haulers from cloaking and that was to drop drones all around the gate. To get anywhere in the game, you have to think outside the box sometimes.
This worked for a while until it was petitioned. A GM took a disliking to it and destroyed the drones over the gate using the sentries. Now the question is, is this an exploit? Some of me thinks yes, and another part of me thinks no.
- You may not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the System (although I doubt this amount will crash the server but if everyone and their dog did it, it would)
- Using unused items to your own personal benefit is seen as an unfair advantage given the situation.
- Game allows you to do it
- No different as a 20 man gang all with drones out
- No different from miners dropping cans in belts (in terms of load)
The league’s been updated and I’m sad to say both Silas Fiat and Bischopt have withdrawn but there’s plenty of others left in the league to challenge. Speaking of which, 99% of all matches are organised through our in-game channel.
