I just came to realize that High Sec gankers probably have a alot of ISK.
Why dont the gankers go into Null with their Titan using jump filaments and super gank fleets of mining barges or combat anomolies, cloak the Titan after numerous anoms have been taken out, run the ESS up to a couple hundred million in a few hours, then cloak and send in super fast AB fit ships to raid the ESS?
I don’t use a titan, because I enjoy a challenge, and it’s fun to use a cheap Catalyst and run circles around you for years. Actually, that’s not much of a challenge at all, but it is fun regardless. Fortunately, I own a lot of Catalysts.
High sec gankers are what you are referring to in your OP. They are the most frightened of any EVE player. If you look in the dictionary for risk averse, you’ll see a picture of Aiko.
They don’t own titans, they don’t go below 04, and they never join a corp that doesn’t have a ship replacement policy. Plus, most of them are poor AF. Hard to make ISK when you sit on a gate all day to gank a T1 fit Retriever or a Badger full of Veldspar and then split the take 10 ways.
I do genuinely wonder about suicide gankers though. Surely it can’t be that profitable ganking Ventures. Even with a full load of Veldspar sold at Jita that only comes to 61,000 ISK. That’s not even 1/10th the cost of a weapon loaded Catalyst.
How does one afford to keep suicide ganking? Not to mention the Security loss.
Titans can’t just turn up and immediately start firing. All the Titan weapons have a delay, and the most powerful can actually only target other capital ships in any case. It would be a waste of time and effort and skills to try to blap a Retriever with a Titan when half a dozen Catalysts could do the job. And with no Concord in nullsec…they’d be around for the next such mission as well.
Being a Highsec ganker in EVE is like being a superstar in RL. You get hundreds of fans like Drison, but also tons of haters like Drison. Also a lot of nonsense articles threads are written about you, simply because they want to mention you, even though it makes absolutely no sense.
Sometimes you even get stalked and some crazy once even tried to touch my cat. And people just randomly shout at you because they hate you for your skill, your fame, your riches, your green killboard and your good looks.
