Not a clickbait!

Popping a medistim before your ship blows uo in space when a pirate shoots at you, will stop the pirate from killing and looting you, because of the constant healing. Get your 6A plates on a penetration/burn armor and you're set.
A few minutes ago I got decided to go on CP to do some broods. I put on my hermes and took a medistim with me, hoping to get a chance to test it. Last time I encountered a pirate, it was sloth and I used 10mg pill. 5mg being cheaper, they are really awesome! I popped it a few seconds before my ship blew up and it worked like a ... vaccine :)

The pirate was everyone's favorite and he didn't insisted in shooting me for the whole 30 seconds because he figured out shortly what happened. In the quote below there's another video where he sees the pirate antidote for the first time. Everyone should try this/
If you meet the pirate and you just figured out you forgot some loot, see if you don't have one of these medistims with you.

Enjoy



Guys, have a Medistim with you in case you don't want to be looted. You let the pirate shoot your ship and with a few seconds before your ship gets killed, pop a medistim and the pirate will not be able to kill and loot you, space will kill you, making the pirate loose quite a bit on shooting both your ship and you. It's pretty fun, tested recently with medistim 10, hermes armor and 6A plates. I learned this on a pirate stream, check out the tutorial:

Full vid: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/270655783 - it starts at 1:01 - watch it, it's really fun, also, tutorial on how to avoid being looted.

If you try this, please stream it and clip it and send me the clip, will make a list.
Cheers

Be careful, there's a way for the pirate to screw you if they are smart about it.

Hmm, this will only work if you froze some considerable ped in plates/armor + you may get a crit so it won't work if you have small HP - I guess not anti-pirate vaccine for noobs :)

Also it's a matter of time if some pirate will stop shooting you if he sees heal buff, wait for it to wear off and then finish you off. So better to have more than one of these pills and be heading some kind of safe zone. It will work for SS to CP trip but not caly to ark.

I think if you can out heal the gun, you will suffocate before the buff is gone.

Divine Intervention helps too but with my HP + vigi/6a + aeglic adjusted + DI the divine intervention was the thing that showed any result. It cost the pirate 1 extra shot but didn't save me. I didn't have any good regen pills handy so I'm not sure if it would have done it for me. All of these things do add expense for the pirate, even if it's a petty amount lol.

Of course, it costs you too. $1 and you've got an armed, armored, and often escorted ride if you can travel around 00:00 MA.

Does keeping HP under 50% still solve it?

That would be the lazy fix.

The proper fix of course is to make suffocation gradual, e.g. 5 HP/sec. That's give OJs an advantage of dying sooner but I think I can live with that. :laugh:

then you could just enter space with low hp and die before the pirate even gets a shot in

Thorifoid helmets would need to be disallowed in space, yes. (should have happened long time ago anyway)

Other than that, it'd just make SS camping harder, and I see that as a plus.

It depends what you mean by considerable. You could get a set of used L, maybe under 100 ped? Or just use some parts. But you're right, this is not for noobs, this is for regular players. How long can a player stay noob ? (forever is the answer in some cases but we're not talking about those).

It's a good thing that there is an option to just not have your luggage checked every damn time you want to go to CP/FOMA. Probably in time, I will just link my pills in chat and neither of us will make any waste....

Evey, best pirate defense - buy a kismet
Yes, epic defense.

Buy Kismet
Launch to Caly SS
See Pirate
Pirate sits in safe zone waiting for you to leave
***BUT WAIT, NOW YOU HAVE FIRE POWER~**
Okay, so now you have a weapon and totally want to win, so now time to get the advantage on them!
Now you sit waiting in safe zone for them to leave!
3 hours later, this is boring I'd rather just die

even if they do leave odds are they can kill their target and turn around and kill most new space players because they dont know the mechanics. Even if they can kill them looting the pirates avatar is another trick most dont know, so odds are they wont get loot even if they do win and the pirate happens to be carrying.


Best thing to do if you want to be a thorn in their side without spending cash or to much time is to make a solo team, mark them as target so you see the distance behind they are. Fly around the SS, and try to widen the gap to at least .0925 AU, then fly out straight towards your destination, and dont turn. Remember to pick the closest point to your destination to your position, that way they cannot triangulate and catch up enough to get into range. If you cant get them to give you that gap just moving around and forcing them to follow, leave and fly straight, just use ctr/shift/c/z slides to move around, dont turn the nose of the quad. That makes the flat top or bottom show more, and it's easier to hit then the quad from behind. Also loses you speed, which means the pirate can catch up some and get an easier target to hit.

btw at caly ss flying around up, down, all around it's easy to get that gap, eventually ships drawing in will get them a lag spike or they will bump one, and you got your gap.


Dont smuggle loots, use warps :p

Solid advice. Please do this so we get that big flashing indicator that say's were a target so we can know what you're trying very hard to do, but will ultimately fail at :).

rofl dude, you see them on nearby list... don't tell me your the only pirate in NVE that doesn't know how to use nearby/friends list.



When pirates use sarcasm and downplay advice given against their benefit, pay attention :wise:

Thanks for gathering evidence, which I'm sure will be useful in future VU's :)

Again, I strongly recommend everyone does this because it is 100% foolproof!:tongue2:

If I were a pirate I'd postpone final deadly shot for a couple of seconds :)
Doing that would result into the ship getting safe to CP/FOMA :)
There's also more medistim to pop if the pirate waits for the final blow... :)

I just love the salt. Sure they can abuse the summons exploit and the map speed bug for who knows how fucking long, but one little pill and the water works come out:lolup:
