I live in wormhole space too.
Yeah, and a stealth bomber fitted with a MSE (for tank) can uncloak without sensor recalibration delay (perk of stealth bombers) to scram you. MSE will give enough tank for other ships to arrive and kill you. You would have less chance there than you would against a Curse because the Curse has to finish warping in.
I can tell you that my corp scans every sig when we scan down a wormhole for this reason. Some of our pilots even take the time to put perches in data and relic sites if they plan on hunting explorers in that system.
I’m not going to tell you that wormhole space isn’t for you; that’s something you need to decide for yourself. What I will tell you is that wormhole space is high reward for high risk. If you want high reward (easy ISK) for low risk, you might want to try null space (no offense to people in null).
Wormhole space isn’t safe; its dangerous. That’s what many of us, wormholers, like about it.
Someone else already explained this, but I do want to address something. If Combat Recons ‘broke’ wormhole space, wormhole corps would fly them en masse… and we don’t. As I already pointed out, there are ships that get a lot more kills. I just checked the Astero; it has 2618 appearance on killmails this week; 28% were solo. Curse’s current solo kill rate: 10%. Stratios solo kill rate: 19% solo.
Look, I know you just got killed and you’re upset. But if the Curse was as brutal as you are trying to make it out to be, wormholers would be flying a lot more of them… and they’d be getting more solo kills.
