So I thought I was being smart, using this site: http://eve-gatecheck.space/eve/ to check for gate camps while returning from a long exploration trip out in null.
I plotted my route trying to avoid obvious pipes and checked eve-gatecheck for camps, all clear it tells me. Great I think, all clear and almost home. So I’m going along, refreshing eve-gatecheck every time I jump and feeling very smug as it shows my route is safe. BOOM I jump once more and my heart sinks. They were well set up and clearly knew what they were doing. I was fairly close to the edge of the bubble, tried to dash for it but my pod was space debris barely a second after I de-cloacked.
Ok so maybe I could have been the first pray into this trap, but I refresh check eve-gatecheck again after my death and it is still show no kills in that system. Ok maybe the site hasn’t updates. I check after, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, half an hoir. Still eve-gatecheck shows 0 kills in the last hour.
So what happened? Is eve-gatecheck untrustworthy? Did the campers do something clever to stop the kills showing? Did I just get unlucky or make a mistake? What more can I do to get home safe?
