I’m trying to return back to the game on a bit of a casual basis - just doing some low sec mining, building some t1 ships for the local market just to give myself a goal and pass the time. I’m not really interested in joining a corp right now beacuse I expect my playtime to drop once the corona virus lock down is finished.
Anyway I’m fairly experienced in low sec of old but how do I go about countering T3 ships with the covert subsystem? Before T3 I’d only really have to deal with cloaky frigates and I can probably escape/destroy those before they call in reinforcements. But with the T3 strategic cruisers my barge won’t be able to destroy it before it destroys me and I can’t see it warp into the belt so even if I’m aligned and stopped I won’t be able to escape before they can lock/point.
I mine in a skiff/procurer so I have the tank but I don’t think this helps.
I’m guessing EC-300 's aren’t going to be very reliable?
Is there any defence I’m missing here? I don’t mind taking some risk and I won’t dock up as soon as a neut comes into the system but I don’t want to hand over easy kill mails either.
