Time flies when you’re having fun ! It’s a little less than 2 months since I joined the 20 minuters and started moving into a wormhole. It’s got it’s pros and cons, but so far, it has certainly revived my Eve-Play ! There is so much more to do, more sites to run, more jumping around (think our exit has been in all 4 corners of hisec now) etc etc..
Anyway, this weekend I discovered a new way (well for me anyway) to make isk in a wormhole. I wanted to run a few sites this weekend in the hole and when I started scanning I noticed some activity near our C4 entrance. I saw an iteron V and a hoarder jumping through. They were using our hole to pass through to hisec ! I scanned down the hisec exit, and sat there cloaked. Another industrial jumped back into our hole, I uncloaked and took a pot-shot at it, but it warped off before I hit anything. I logged on an alt who was in a ship with a point and planted her near the entrance.
You would think that the one pilot that was shot at warned his corp mates, but strangely enough not short there after an Itty V entered the system. This time I could tackle it, and it of course jumped back to hisec. Suddenly in local, a guy with a similar name appeared, obviously a cloaky alt who asked for a deal to pass through since they had some stuff ‘of no value to you‘ to pass through our system to their C4. Needless to say I responded with ‘make me an offer I can’t refuse’. Well he did and we even had a nice chat while they were transporting their stuff through our hole. I made more than what I would have made had I run a few sites.
As I mentioned earlier we also have do excursions into other holes. Last night we entered a C5 for the first time. It was definitely doable with 3 outstanding Basilisk pilots, a few battleships and a handful of drakes. The C5 had a lot of active POSes in it, but the inhabitants were probably from the US timezone also indicated by http://www.wormhol.es (great intel site btw). Only saw a legion briefly on scan, but that was about it. This morning I checked the wormhole system again on dotlan and apparently there had been some brawl in that very hole later that night. Glad we didn’t run into that merry band of T3 cruisers :).
