So, I’m looking for something new to do in EVE, I haven’t really played much in a while and never did covert-ops stuff or much in the way of stealthy exploration, if at all possible.
The question about cloaks is mainly how do gate camps in Null decloak you.
Is it always the instant target and microwarp at you method?
If not instant target, what other tactics are there to uncloak you?
There is a time delay when breaking Gate-cloak and cloaking, yes? My understanding is this is because of server ticks. If you break gate-cloak then this counts as an action which at a minimum requires 2 server ticks, correct?
3a) So my follow-up to #3 is if you set your cloaking device to your mouse wheel, can’t you rapid fire your cloaking command?
3a) cont’d, therefore can’t you just spam your cloak command until the server automatically registers you as decloaking at the gate (gate timer times-out) and therefore the first command you give on your uncloaked server tick is to cloak?
3a) final: therefore wouldn’t that make your cloak command competitive with instant-targeting strategies and because a target still needs a tick to complete the lock, you win and cloak?
Thanks for putting up with my noob questions.
