EDIT: My mistake. It was in lowsec, not highsec. SMH. I was thinking of my home system and not the one I was currently in. Apologies for the error. I’m a moron.
Hey guys. So, I’ve been away from EVE for about 5 years. I used to PvE and PvP quite a bit, but now I just really enjoy the calm and mellowness of ice mining. Long story short, I was in a high sec ice belt (0.7 system) and came across a guy who was running two ‘Excavator’ drones. I’d not heard of those before, so I checked them out and apparently they’re roughly a billion ISK each. He was flying an Orca (solo, from what I could tell) and while looking at the drone bandwidth I guess he was able to fly two of those at once. On the surface, that made sense, but then I remembered this is EVE, and I began to think that guy is begging to get ganked (even in an Orca) as you’d be looking at a (again, roughly) 3 billion+ ISK kill? Still, for a guy who can afford two billion-ISK drones, I’d think he must know what he’s doing, so am I missing something?
