    Just a concept question, do you even need the cloaking sub? Interdiction nullifier + cloaking trick (mwd+cloak for instawarps) should mean that you can get through pretty much all camps. Do you really need the cloak to catch ratter in anomalies, if they would pay attention to local and such they wouldnt get caught anyways so do they actually actively press dscan? Doing that would make them a lot better in combat and would make the legion viable.

    The scan res penalty of the non-covert cloaks could hurt your chances of landing the initial tackle, I guess.

    The real place the covops cloak comes in handy is once you've probed them and they're in a plex - you'll not be able to sneak up on them without a covert cloak.

    Often times I'd find systems with ratters in them and just go AFK for a bit. Come back and they're back in their anoms. The real use comes from using D-scan to find them, you've got to warp around.

    not really. FWIW I have caught many mission/plex runners with a probing faction cloaked BS. Approx 200mm scan res is enough. The genius is when you just sit out in the open in a ship that isn't a threat to their minds. 5 to 10 mins of that and most just assume you are ratting yourself, even if you are red.

    straying offtopic a bit, but: playing off-peak hours, being sensible and cautious about warping to un-bookmarked gates, and using mwd cloak to get back to gate everytime. even if straddle camped you can do it if you have a couple of nanos on a fast-ish BS. Eventually you get lucky and no-one decloaks you, then you either out-wait them or slowly creep away to a safe distance. Hiding in plain sight is quite under-rated though. I mean cmon , everybody knows only an idiot would be pirating in a BS(one that most people assume is PvE or brawl fit)...so no-one thinks you might cloak or probe your way out. Having said all that, most time I just move on via the obvious exit...
    Hope that answers your question.
    Don't think I mean it is easy, getting tgts is still hard sometimes and you can go hours finding only people who auto-pos up , or are in multiple carriers farming plexes. can get boring.

    Submaring around in a slow, cloaked ship while fast tackle tries to decloak you is so fun. One of my most heart-pounding moments in Eve involved piloting a cloaky Talos around a station undock while 10 ships were motoring with 30km of me.

    If i want to catch carebares like in that posted videos with a loki, should i rather wait in a system cloaked or roam? It looks like he was roaming, right?

    You roam and need to be very good with the dscanner, need to know where to go and need a bit of luck. But as Cue1 said, you can get some kills if you afk cloak and let eve run without doing anything for a few hours.

    Why don't you just ask Zach how he did it? He's still subbed & active, only last week he joined Genos.

    I've done both, the roam and sitting in system, however I've found that sitting in system for a while got me more kills. Or maybe it just felt like that, since I'd be doing something else(usually probing out the rest of the WH chain) on another monitor.

    I found that most people go back to what they were doing if you're in system for 15 or so minutes. Especially if you've got probes out, most people seem to assume you're a wormholer(while true at the time, doesn't make the assumption any less stupid). I never could do the hours of AFK cloaking in system, I'd get nervous somehow someone decloaked me. A good trick I used was jumping in and out of system a few times, makes you look like you're just moving assets around. This is easier if you come in through a WH, since you can jump in and out of the hole and be assured you weren't seen.

    Been reading through this page and watching that video. Made me want to take it to the next level. One of the most annoying things I see in lowsec is all these hard to scan t3 gang link ships(impossible without virtue set).

    Thus I was thinking about fitting up a loki, and buying myself a set of virtues. Waiting for a fight to happen in local with my probes in the correct formation deep off in the edges of space. Find the T3 Gang Link ship on scan, move 91 sensor str sister scanner probes onto the t3 ship, probe him quickly, warp in overheat guns with hail loaded and blow him to bits. Get some good profit off the faction co-pro's most use in the lows, and move on. I am assuming most T3 Ganglinks are alts, so they wont notice the scanner probes if I am fast enough.

    Combine this with roaming in lowsec busting missions as fast as you can, hence the afterburner. Then eventually, if lowsec gets boring, dip into 0.0 all in a single roam.

    I used to bust missions all the time, but I did it with an alt prober, but I am just tired of paying for 2 accounts and dual boxing gets old compared to just roaming quickly. I made quite a profit busting mission runners in low sec systems before, I assume it is still the same now. Been a while since I played this game.

    I was looking at a way to get more shields but tbh, even with an extender and one extender rig you only gain 2.8k shields, and I need the afterburner for mission busting, since you can't use MWD's in most of the mission space.

    Yeah, you can use MWD in every mission now.

    Except DED 1/2 or something silly like that. But you can't enter them anyway.
    I don't think you will find that many mission runners, but probaby some dude running DED 4/5/6 sites. Be carefull though, NPC aggro switches now.

    Thanks for the awesome updates. I had no idea you can MWD in almost every mission. I have never even ran a mission in my entire career in eve, only busted them. NPC Aggro switches, that's interesting and fun.

    Thanks for the fit, I will compare it, looks like it has more tank but less dps. Not real sure, either way the MWD thing is priceless, the fit just got so much easier and better.
