We can END ganking in Uedama, as we know it.

There is a very simple (and relatively safe) mechanic that would end ganking in Uedama.

All it takes is a couple of good bumping ships, a little coordination, and some desire.

We know how small and vocal the ganking community is. They’ll rush out to condemn me and use their very small bag of tricks to ridicule this post. The fact that I’ve been playing Eve Online since 2003.05.10 makes me immune to these tactics.

I sat an alt in a freighter, on a can at zero. I started my approach at 100k in an Omen Navy Issue. As you can see in the above picture, I was able to bump the Providence a solid 40k with a single bump.

If you know anything about ganking, you know how limited the range and speed of a Catalyst is. That being said, timing is EVERYTHING. (I have saved numerous Freighters and Marauders using this method.)

I propose a contest, to be held a week from *Sunday, 2021.10.24 at 18:00 Eve Time. I’ll reward the pilot that can bump a stationary freighter the greatest distance 5 billion ISK. The payment will be made on TQ but the contest will take place on the Test Server. Given the nature of gankers, they will show up and try to gank the freighter on TQ :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. I’ll post the rules in a follow-up post.

If you want to participate in the contest (or anti-ganking), you can post here or send me an in-game email. I’m sure many of you don’t want to deal with the grief that is sure to follow.

*Conditions are subject to change once I receive feedback.

*Work in progress/looking for more input.

Does it matter what we bump it with and is that a single bump after it completely stops moving? Won’t be able to be there on time what if I send you a video of me doing it on sisi?

No, you can use any ship that’s allowed in HS. I do need to give this thing more time though. Let’s make it next Sunday. Also, the gankers are already hard at work trying to suppress this post. Can you believe CCP flagged it as β€œspam”?

Yes, a single bump ONLY. The Providence will start off at a β€œdead stop”.

I can meet you on SiSi to conduct your bump.

How many billions is that?

(0.005 billions ISK would make a meager reward…)

Between 2 and 5 billion, depending on the level of participation. It won’t be much of a contest if only one person shows up. I’m still hammering out the details.

What would be more fun is if Miners/Haulers formed a fleet and did a burn Udema slaughtering the gankers.

I’m confused how this was seen as flagable and why if it was seen to be in breach and needing to be flagged the thread wasn’t locked?

That said are there really that many freighters dying in hs?

Flagging happens automatically based on an amount of reports.

Locking requires human action from one of the moderators.

Lies.

I have it on very good authority that there is absolutely no way to stop a gank.

Then why when a post gets flagged the message you get said it was reviewed and found to be in breach?

I feel hurt and lied to by ccp

I have knocked freighter 100s of one km in a single bump on tq time to figure out a better way on sisi

No idea, maybe it was reviewed by a moderator? Or perhaps they mean it was reviewed by other forum participants, who knows.

(Sorry for off topic)

For years, gankers have used the β€œFLAG” button to suppress content. They log all of their alts in and spam away. I’m pretty sure CCP is aware of it.

How is it fun or profitable to save a freighter from a gank? The fun starts only at or after the gank. :wink:

Im not trying to express an opinion on your goal, but what I dont understand is how a bumping competition helps reach that goal.

I must be missing something.
