Defending Miners in High Sec - This an ICSI (If Code Shoot It) compliant tactic that does not require a permit or any ISK to use.
From NRDS to you High Sec
When a gank takes place CONCORD shows up, usually after the gank has taken place for any real defense to happen. So what is CONCORD really good for you ask?
The question is how do you get CONCORD to the help you?
1.Create two alts on your main account and train them to use a T1 weapon non-civilian weapon.
2.Drop a can in the belt that you are intending to mine in with your main character.
3.Log out and then back in with your Alt.
4.Attack the can with the Alt so that CONCORD spawns into the belt.
5. CONCORD will attack your alt destroying but will remain in the belt.
6. Return with your mining character and mine in peace.
Repeat 1 through 5 every time CONCORD leaves the belt.
With CONCORD already in the belt CODE and the two or three ships they use to gank your mining barge will not be not as capable to destroy your mining barge as easily because CONCORD will respond immediately.
Using more alts to attack the initial jet can will cause more CONCORD to spawn at one time.
So put CONCORD to use and become an NRDS Compliant CONCORD agent today.
The same mechanic can be used to protect a stargate with CONCORD to keep CODE from ganking.
