Every once in a while I check out the EvE forums, and every once in a while something strikes me as funny. This is one of those particular instances that stood out today.
The thread was entitled Best ways to catch cov ops haulers?.
We are trying our bestest to outsmart and catch those abundant cloaky haulers such as viators, hoarders, prowlers and cranes. The scene is low sec. As they jump in from high sec they cloak up and warp out. So far I’ve tried putting up giant secure containers around the gate to try to decloak at least some of them but they can’t be anchored this close to the gate and vanish after downtime. I’ve tried smartbombing them on their outgoing gate but tank too strong, they slip through. I need to find another solution which would allow me to catch them, suggestions? Is freighter dropping 100s of shuttles legal? Not even sure if its possible. Need some good advice, halp?

Confirming that the Blockade runner is pretty good at getting through blockades..
I don’t if I’m just punchy today or what, but it’s just funny. I fly Cranes, and knock on plasteel, I haven’t lost one yet. I’m still careful, but they’re designed to get through safely. They don’t carry a whole lot, but they’ve gotten me out of a lot of scary situations while I’ve been hauling.
