Big Bear Hug

[TIP] In addition to Empire, Dotlan also tracks statistics for WH systems. You can track historical jumps and kills out of game in the following URL format: So for example, you can see the history on this little C1.

We’ve had a quiet weekend in our WH space as far as mining goes but saw a lot of visitor activity, especially Russian visitor activity.


  • Found a good route to empire, C6 (us) -> C5 -> C4 -> highsec one jump from Jita.
  • Standard drill: out out, fuel in


  • Woke up early and started scanning, ooook normal WH procedure
  • Core grav despawned, damn
  • Only 4 Ladars left, damn
  • Nobody online to run encounters, damn

At this point I decided to start harvesting gas. I fitted a Dominix to take on Sleeper frigates and headed out to activate two Ladar sites.

After a few minutes, a Tengu, Drake, and Scorpion were scramming me. They had apparently already scanned our system down and bookmarked it. When I came online, they came in for the kill.

Now I do check the Dotlan charts for my system when I log on for the day, and I should have been aware that there were multiple jumps over the span of 3-4 hours prior to me logging on, but I ignored all that.

Hmm, I’m not one for smacktalk so I did not respond and starting onlining guns and POS shield hardeners. I think they were looking for me to respond because they eventually got bored and left our system.

There were 10 hours left on our static WH and I sat cloaked watching numerous Space Patrol Russian Federation ships take a peek into our WH to see if any more targets were active until it eventually closed.

летать безопасно! (fly safe? sorry for the Google Translator usage)

    Don’t forget the new fabulous website where not only can you check out stats on jumps and kills in the last 48 hours but also find out what the potential static exit of the new system you’ve found is 🙂

    • Idris alDin says:

      That site has been a great tool ever since I moved into a C3 a few days ago. Very efficient way for myself and my partner to coordinate our daily probing duties. Can’t imagine living in w-space without it, tbh.

    How did you have local chat in a wormhole or am I misunderstanding something?

    • Sae says:

      It’s not that local doesn’t exist in wormholes, just that it remains blank until you or someone else says something.

    I saw this particular kill on the boards and thought “Oh, they got someone ratting”. Didn’t even realize it was you. Ah, gotta love the tough lessons.

  4. nik says:

    there is no such expression which can be equivalent for english “fly safe” in russian language. “летать безопасно” it is word-for-word translation and in russian it sounds like “there are safe to fly (now)”. I would suggest to use phrases “До свидания”, “пока” or more informal “бывайте, мужики” “покедова, чуваки” “Ладно, давайте”

    I love your blog!

  6. Watch out for them Russians!

    Ha those jokers.
    I believe you would be glad to hear that 2 days after what happened to you, my alliance raped them to the tune of… wait for it…. 20bil. Of ‘liberated’ assets.

    They did to one of us what they did to you, and we showed ’em we ain’t ‘fraid o’ no Russky.
