Ok, the Pirate faction mining fleets need to be toned down A LOT. Was mining with corp in HS. Guristas mining fleet warps in (diamond) and IMMEDIATELY warps off with NO ONE attacking. Response fleet of 5 Rattlesnakes, 2 osprey, some Cruisers and a few frigates. WTF is up with that??? NS Rats at worse are 2 BS 2 cruiser spawns. We BARELY got our fleet out of there and I made it out with my Orca at about 40% shields.
This JUST started after the trig fleets no longer show up, which we are able to melt easily with our drones. There’s NO WAY we can take on a fleet that size. CCP is already making mining damn near impossible to do with all the NPC mining fleets with their Ventures (with 4!!! mining lasers) skiffs and retrievers. By the time our corp makes it to the belts, there’s only about 20% of it left
