So there I was pvping like crazy yesterday. Decided to take a break and finish the night off in a quiet system mining in a alt.
Someone posted in local about a scout for safety. So I watched local, notta. Then 3 dessies appeared within blaster range of my retriever out of warp. So I aligned and overheated my shield hardener. Of course they tackled me anyways and smashed my ship. Even though I was hull tanked. And i had a MTU next to me so all my stuff was returned.
3 goons -10 sec status did not show flashy in local until they engaged me. Why is there a delay in local showing the security status. Nor were they flashy on my overview.
They didnt retrieve anything so why bother? Its just a killmail. Not even a good one.
Barges need a buff. In fw I hunt wt barges all the time. Even with tank they are paper thin. I used to rock a procurer but it got killed by 3 dessies as well. So now i just mine as fast as possible and mtu it.
Barges need a buff to tank. As well as warp core bonuses that ventures have. Or more fitting cpu/pg so I can fit something worth a damn. Or a bonus to ecm burst. Freakin something.
