    That's because you're mining in a cruiser, and you're doing it wrong.

    Plant like 6 passworded GSCs at your belt, mine in a retriever or better, then when all cans are full, retrieve with an industrial.

    Rinse and repeat.

    Also don't mine anything but Kernite if you're in HS.

    Don't mine at all.
    You can find much higher isk/time ratios in other activities.

    Its a good way to play eve AFK though if thats what you do

    Ah, so Kernite is the way to go then. It's just my 60 day mining alt, training only mining skills and the Osprey has a pretty good mining amount with the right skills, atleast it seems. also heard it's the best trial mining ship. But damn, mining in EvE is the boringest shit I've ever done in a game.

    Don't mine at all.

    Ye, I did AFK mining, although it's a pain in the ass to drop off and head back, start firing those lasers and the cargo is full in 120 repeat 50 times, bam 4 million isk, Bill gates erryday.

    I was hoping for a better response, not what the ingame info page tells me already, but ok.
    I'm not kidding. Dictors attract more stray fire than anything else.


    Also Cynos are something ships with jumpdrives or portal generators lock onto.

    The rat bounties in null make me feel pain when looking at mining income numbers.

    Also yeah a cyno is a brightass beacon that ships with jump drives (captals, supercapitals, jump freighters, black ops?) can jump to if they've got enough fuel and are in fleet. Said beacon is visible and warpable from anywhere in the system (except covert cynos), and the ship maintaining it is a complete sitting duck.

    Wow, thanks. I heard Black Ops ships are bad, is there any truth to this?

    Also, what are Cynos?
    In a general fight yes there bad. But ganking, "oh my".

    Cyno's are a created via a Cyno Generator that allow black ops Jump Drive or Portal as well as Capital jump drives to lock on to it from X amount of jumps. The cyno requires He-3 and has a cycle time of 30 seconds(i think) once active the ship can not move.

    Interdiction is for fast tackle as well as warp-ins(get behind the enemy fleet and warp to a distance) that's close enough to the enemy fleet. They do well at this because they go about 4000(6000 m/s overheated).
    surely you are thinking of interceptors

    Not true, a subcapital ship would still have to get there to light the cyno :')

    Meh.. I've been thinking of returning to EVE Online after over a year of inactivity.

    I got fed up when I lost my 40m ISK ship last winter and haven't played since. I've played EVE Online on and off since 2008, but believe it or not: last winter was the first time I entered lowsec, did missions and actually used weapons. Before I that, I had only hauled, mined and traded. Then my expensive ship got gatecamped and I lost all interest.

    That's why I'm never going to do any of those things again.. But trading and hauling in highsec does seem interesting. I just don't know if it's worth it, those things seem interesting but quickly get boring.

    That seems dangerous and I'm pretty much guaranteed to lose my ship.. Hell, I've got a Drake and I paniced when one belt rat frigate attacked me in highsec. I'm just not that interested in the violent aspect of EVE, I'm too paranoid about losing my ship.. :/

    That's why I've got ships like Drake and Noctis that I never use.. Noctis is useless because there's no salvage in highsec and I'm too paranoid to use Drake; even in highsec or in noob missions.

    If you attack someone without the right to, you will lose sec status, be flagged Global Criminal (Anyone can rape ur anus), and the stations and gates will shoot you for 15 minutes.

    I actually bought my first drake two weeks ago, whenever a neut comes into the system im ratting in i warp around like a madman and leave, but i just know *at some point* this drake is going to get blown up, i probably shouldnt be flying it as i can't afford to replace it (hence the ratting *in* it) but i don't think i'd get mad, i'd just have to bring the thrasher jewboat out and salvage some more, just seems part of the game.

    Then how do gatecamps work? Do they just have someone in a noobship attack you then everybody else can help without being attacked?

    They shoot you, but they aren't concord so they don't instapop you

    Anything cruiser-sized or above can tank them for a while

    steal an unpiloted chimera stuffed to the brim with t2 ships from a hub in n3mesisdot space while the pilot empties their noctis in the station next door.

    Best place to look for fits is killboards, look for people that die in large battles with kills.

    Battleclinic is a very hit and mostly miss place to look.
