A rule forgotten, a lesson learned

When i started in my Eve businesses i had a golden rule: never haul cargo over 100m ISK.  The idea here is that anything over 100m ISK made a me a potential target.

Well, as my manufacturing business got up and running i became lazy and was happily hauling 2bn ISK of raw materials out of Jita to my manufacturing facilities.

Until i got caught and killed by a 80m ISK Tornado at the beginning of December (2013).  Fortunately for me i only had 700m ISK in my cargo that time (i was lucky).

So, lesson learned.

I have now skilled up a tanked Nereus and made an instant undock bookmark, several instant undock bookmarks infact.

Thank you to ABM Rambo for the advice (and taking the time to enlighten me).

  2. Blockade Runners are all I use for transport now. In a bit over a year, I've lost exactly one and that one was to a low sec station camp I knew was there but decided to try crashing anyhow.

    Other than that I frequently fly 10-20 jumps on autopilot through hi sec with cargo values that gankers would drool over. And they ignore me because they can't see what I'm carrying. =)

  3. +1 to what MoxNix said. Blockade Runners (that cloak, importantly) are highly recommended.

  4. I rly like your blog, and i think you doing great.
    On topics, I also use a Blockde Runner (Viator) for transport almost always on autopilot and only lost one because of a low-sec gate camp.
    You could also Buy a Pilot on forums that use Blockade Runners or Freighters and save some time.
