Hi there, not new to EVE bu coming back after a long time away. I’m having a hard time getting specifics on new jump freighter cyno mechanics. I heard you could use Covert op ships for cynos, now I think they didn’t do that.
I looks like you now can only jump to a ship with an industrial Cyno generator. They only fit on a BR, standard industrial ship, or a Deep space transport.
So essentially we went from the cost of a cyno generator and fuel, to the cost of an industrial, + the cost of a T1 hauler (if you can get it to where you need it stripped down, and that’s a big if)
Am I missing something? Seems like jump freighter are all but useless unless you have a who gang escort.
Is there some tactic I’m missing here?
Any advise would be helpful before I decide to sell my JF. I just don’t see how you can get a t1 freighter into low and null sec with any consistency.
Sure I could use my blockade runner but that’s an expensive ship to be a sitting duck for 10 minutes.
