1.22 B Jita Gank

A week’s worth of WH mining exploded outside 4-4 in Jita last week under the guns of a ganking Hyperion.

ISK Dropped: 1.137 B
Hauler ISK Value: 83.8 M

A recent Eve forum post got me thinking about better hauling tactics and how to deal with passive cargo scanning gank ships. From now on, I am not going to haul anything more than 400-500 M in one trip and I will load up the minerals in Giant Secure Containers.

What are some of your hauling tactics?

    How much could you haul in a blockade runner. That would be pretty safe cloaked…

    I generally don’t haul anything worth ganking although I did use a cloaky Cov Ops when I bought my slaves/hardwirings using an alt when I bought them. I was worried that someone would try to gank an indy or regular frig that was flying around with 400 mil worth of implants in its holds.

  4. I was under the impression that cargo scanners can see into GSC’s…. I may be wrong…

    So this was a Grief Gank?

    Can;t wait till the insurance Nerf for that finally comes to pass. It would make it less profitable and more of a risk. it needs some balancing, not elimination. if you are hauling stuff get some nanos in there
    and get aligned and moving. I see pilots just Drift out of Jita 4-4 with billions in thier Figate holds. And Here I am a Carebear looking at them and my Shiny NH and my M8s with me , LOCK Scram Neut and Launch all Grouped and I’d lose a NH but could gain quite a bit of nice loot

    I even locked on once
    and the fool just drifted by, most likely AFK . but next thing I know they align and warp and get to the same gate I am at …..you guessed it 15k AP , Friggin’ AP with all those prints in his hold .

    /me facepalms……

  6. You deserved it.

    I’m sorry, but I’ve told other people the same thing: transporting hundreds of millions / billions worth of ISK in a ship that costs less than one battleship rat in the worst parts of 0.0 space is the height of foolishness.

    Get a Deep Space Transport: they are ten times more durable. Better yet, get an Orca; they tank like a battleship. Even a freighter. Although none of them are completely safe from dedicated group suicide attack, the effort is a lot harder and solo opportunistic gankers will not get you.

    If you don’t have the skills, then don’t move so much stuff until you do! No excuse.

    The GSC container is pointless…cargo scanners see through them.

  8. second the comment that transporting 1.2bn worth of goods in a t1 hauler is not a good idea

    get a transport ship, tank it to hell and your problem is solved for mid-value hauls
    For REALLY valuable cargo, orca/freighter is a must

  9. Ouch. Ah well time to go earn billions in WH’s again…

    yes, we deserved it. that doesn’t mean i cant complain about it >.>
    rest assured, the party responsible has been severely punished.
    we laughed at him a bit. and then cursed a bit. and then made him start training for blockade runners immediately.
