If the gankers really only used two systems… Then there wouldn’t be much ganking, would there?
You’re probably my favorite poster, but sometimes I think there is some dissonance in what you claim. (Like you need to care about my thinks.)
If there is one thing that reading the miner bumping website has taught me, it is that you can in fact avoid being ganked. Yes it does require effort, but at the end of the day, CODE is not above throwing 50 catalysts at a single Target just to make a point.
I don’t think there is a counter to that, not by playing smart or being prepared. I don’t think there should be a counter to that. Overwhelming DPS is by its very nature supposed to be overwhelming. All well and good. But you still can’t do anything about it. And there’s still no reason to keep playing if you think that’s going to be your fate.
(No, I don’t think you have 50 ship squads for every kill.)
I do believe it is possible to avoid being bumped. I do think it is possible to avoid being ganked. I don’t think that it is confined to just the two systems you are claiming. And if it were really, truly just as simple as doing the things you sometimes suggest, then CODE would never have gotten off the ground in the first place.
What CODE does is effective, not simply because CODE is so good at doing it… But because the mechanics themselves are effective. Ergo, not as easy to avoid or Escape as you might sometimes claim.
