It's gonna be worse with frigates tackling on gates because of their fast lock.


The heavy dictor (sebo + remote sebo) & huggin combo is far more effective no?

So how is letting frigates on gates improving anything for outlaws?


Cheaper, more available. Even less risk!


True, it's cost effective..

Less risk.. I disagree. Money usually isn't the issue nowdays, k/d ratio's are very important... for some it seems RollPirate


Yes, park a billion isk worth of ships on a gate in lowsec and tell me how it goes.


A billion is cheap nowadays tbh.

Hot drop Dograzor's hictor gate camp, probably.

Lo-Sec the place you go when you want to be alone. Lol

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

if you want to "fix" sentry guns you could drastically reduce security penalties for podding people on asteroid belts and in plexes/mission dead space and for destroying the ships - to encourge piracy.

Note to all bears that are crying about gatecamps not being fair. You seem to be under the impression that EvE is meant to be fair.

I always thought that there should be a revamp of High Sec/ Low Sec to allow for dynamic securities based on the events that occur in the space. One part of those ideas was to change the way gate guns work in low sec based on its "Dynamic Sec Level".

Lets say for example:

Dynamic Sec Level
.4: Gate guns are present, and are much like they are now. They can be temporarily disabled by a fleet attacking them, but only for a period of a few minutes
.3 Gate guns are present, but are much easier to disable and are offline for longer
.2 Gate guns are sparsely present, and highly inaccurate due to lack of regular maintenance
.1 Gate guns are sparsely present, much like .2, but now stargates can now be hacked to be disabled for some short period.

The security rating will change based on who kills whom of what personal security rating, long term security level rating of occupied forces, and other things...

Changing gate guns to make it harder for pirates is not the way....

As someone who goes into lowsec fairly often now, if this DOES happen, sentries need to be destroyable again. Else, don't do it.

Gate camps? You can get a scout alt for 51 days free of charge. If you feel you must go to lowsec in a well known canped system maybe invest in 1?

Most lowsec is dead anyway. Its just highsec connectors that get most the activity and then its not even all of them just the well known hey theres prob a gate camp systems.

But i enjoy pirates sitting on a gate personally. My alliance and I love to eat them.

This is possibly the single worst idea i have ever heard

If you keep nerfing pvp soon there will be nothing left for ppl to bother playing for

Sentries will pop a triage carrier after 4.5mins?? are u smoking crack like right now?? this will end pvp at gates

This is how its going to go down:

- Alright guys its pretty quiet here should we go camp something?
- Yeah sure
- Whats our numbers?
- Between 5 and 6
- Not enough, we need at least 3 logis.
- Lets just wait for more numbers.

:::eventually fleet logsoff and play starcraft instead:::


I tought that one of the most attractive lowsec characteristics was that it made small pvp possible by using gate tactics, now if you want a fight on a gate you better have a blob and carriers in standby.

Goodbye lowsec pvp...hello carebears...

Hello carebears? Are you insinuating that if they make the lo-sec gate guns make sense then Carebears might go to lo-sec and provide a lot more targets for piracy, not on gates or stations, like belts, anoms ect..?

What i mean is that gate guns "make sense" as they are now since they allow to pvp around them and have a so called gf.

Dont get me wrong more targets are good and shooting carebears is fun, but they are usually not good fights, i dont like the fact that i have give up good exciting fights for some more haulers or poorly fitted vexors in my stats.
