I’ve fiddled around in low sec… lost a Venture to PVP and a thrasher while ratting, also to PVP ( I was new and thought maybe he was there to help… LMAO).
I’ll find an empty low sec system and do some mining and exploring. Mining seems easier since you can keep your eye on D-scan more and run if someone else shows up in-system. Exploring is a but tougher since you need to scan and then hack. So what I’ve done is orbit the gate when I get in system and scan from there, hoping the gate defenses will deter and attacker. Once I find a site and warp to it, i think i’m safe since a potential attacker would also have to scan to find me.
People on here and in-game have said the low sec is very dangerous and the gates and station defenses don’t do anything.
SO… why don’t more people hang out at low sec gates and stations attacking people when the pop in to the system or undock from a station?
I’ve cut through low sec systems (jumping from gate to gate) with a cargo ship with a lot of isk on board without issue.
Am I just lucky or are the gates and stations in low sec stronger than some people say?
