I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in J space hitting up relic and data sites for quite some time now. I don’t often spend more than a few hours in a particular system, but I was caught off guard and I’m wondering what I did wrong–asking my killer(s) didn’t give me any answers, unfortunately.
Running a site has its inherent risks, of course. Even spamming d-scan looking for probes or ships during a hack can be an insufficient amount of information. I’m curious what the possibilities of this mistake can be? All of a sudden I’m lightly coated with drones and ewar. This situation can only mean that this fleet had pre-scanned the entire system prior to my arrival, correct? That way all they need is a cloaky to find me on d-scan and fleet warp. I never saw probes (core or combat), a ship, or anything until they were on grid.
A similar situation that I observe quite often is when ships pop onto d-scan and disappear. How are they able to locate the wormhole without scanning? Did they scan the system for wormholes earlier that day and now they’re traveling in a different ship?
Basically my question(s) is: what are the possible tactics players use to defeat a careful WHer?
Thanks in advance!
