“BOHICA!” as they used to say at Lockheed again within the day.
For the sixth yr in a row Goons and allies have staged themselves in Jita with hundreds of low cost, expendable ships with an eye fixed to destroying as many freighters, soar freighters, and different giant industrial ships as doable through suicide ganks. Burn Jita is on.
Final yr noticed the occasion carry down the Jita node on the opening day as prime time hit. We are going to see if that occurs once more this yr.
As I famous in my reflections on the occasion final yr, the method of singling out a goal and killing it’s ruthlessly environment friendly, with little or no downtime between kills. In case you go alongside you’re getting in on a kill about each 20 minutes.
A part of that’s as a result of the individuals who run this occasion are superb at ganking freighters now, however the different half is that folks will proceed to blithely proceed to undock their ships stuffed with precious cargo even when native is filled with characters named “BJ Bee…” who’re saying Burn Jita in chat over and over.
You aren’t protected should you handle to get out of Jita. Bumpers are ready on the gates in techniques round Jita.
The occasion is slated to final 72 hours, so if you wish to be protected take the weekend off.
