Things may be warming up a bit for us in New Eden. Gaff has reactivated an account or three. I am coming to the end of a training cycle that will let him fly a Hulk at last. It might be time to leave the hanger and earn some ISK.
But I hear from other sources associated with our nominal confederation that the current favorite sport in empire space is Hulk busting.
Gangs of suicide gankers in destroyers have been roving the asteroid belts hunting Hulks for sport. We just can’t seem to get away from suicide gankers in EVE, no matter what anybody says. Some people just find it too much fun.
I haven’t been paying close attention to EVE, but I do tend to scan the headlines and have not seen anything about this. Has anybody else noticed this phenomena? Not that I don’t believe. After all, it the Goons had their own Hulk busting campaign a while back. But it would be interesting to know how wide spread this is.
Busting rocks in empire space may be a hazardous profession these days.
Still, I have to wonder. Wilhelm, my main, has his shield skills pretty much at level 5 across the board. I am going to guess that most miners, especially mining alts, do not have the same skill set.
Could I fit out a Hulk so that it could survive long enough for CONCORD to step in and save the day?
What is a good tank fit for a Hulk?
Time to see if my copy of EVE Fitting Tool is up to date.
