Dodging wormhole collapsers and killing barges

There’s noone online today – a bit of a shame. The C4 is marked as “active” though, so I jump into see why.

My directional scanner lights up with a whole host of ships. Some Hulks, some combat ships. I warp to the bookmarked POS, noting that the 2 Hulks and Retriever disappear off my scan whilst doing so. Interesting.

The POS is full of a mix-mash of ships, along with some bubbles and a pretty cool gun layout. My nullified Proteus zooms past the bubbles with no issues, and I take stock of what I see.

The mining and industrial ships are not at the tower – they must be in space! With this amount of combat ships in the pos, however, I could be limited in what I can do to kill them. A Hulk could probably tank me till his friends arrived.

I deploy probes out of scan range and manage to scan the grav site the miners are at, recalling my probes instantly. Hopefully they missed them!

I warp at range to see the miners unmoving. I could snag an Iteron or something here. My hopes are dashed, however, as probes are appearing on my scanner. They’re onto me! A legion warps into the site and takes up position round the miners. Dammit.

Looks like this plan is scuppered. I could get lucky, time to wait and see. Or not – an Armageddon lights up my scan towards my home wormhole. They must be attempting to collapse!

I warp back to my return wormhole to see the Geddon warping to his tower after doing a wormhole pass.

I see nothing else approaching, so I jump home with my MWD online. Hopefully I can try to mess up their mass calculations, causing them to collapse the wormhole early and trap a ship on our side, which I will thoughtfully destroy.

I jump in and cloak up, just before a Scorpion and Dominix jump in and jump back. No sign of an Orca, so I could be here a while.

Finally the wormhole goes critical as the Geddon jumps again. Maybe they’ll risk a BC or something… nope. A Heavy Interdictor has jumped in. Using it’s Warp Disruption Generators, it can reduce it’s mass to a very small number, allowing it to jump safely.

Well that’s a bust. Off to bed.

Next day dawns. I log into EVE to hear that we have a mining fleet scouted in a C1 down the chain. I jump into our static C4, meet with the fleet and in we went.

We landed on 5 retrievers, killing the lot.

Primary the Veldspar!

The owner of at least 3 of these barges is not a happy bunny, and soon pipes up in local.

The poor guy thinks wspace should be safe for him to mine him. How do these people play EVE?

Barges kill report.

  1. Go blow your grandpa? Really? Miners who want to smack talk in local ought to at least be better at it. Nice kills!
