    What do you want to know? They are pretty boring.

    POS anchoring is slightly less fun than drinking bleach

    Re: Control Towers

    Putting POS up is a pain, pretty much need a rorqual to move all the crap out there, and someone with nothing to do for a day for anchoring all the POS guns.

    Only joy I've found with POS is taking them down and people try to be clever. I had a curse log off at my POS that was unachoring, thinking he could login and catch my hauler. I was cloaked watching, so just went off and got a hurricane. I've had this happen a few more times since, solo pilots think of it as an easy kill.

    Why would you keep anchoring and unanchoring a pos...

    Re: Control Towers

    hm I anchored a corp deathstar, then a few weeks later anchored my own small POS. Few days later I realised would make more ISK if I upped to a medium, so swapped to that.

    Then Red Alliance came along and steamrolled my medium and told me (and few other corps in system who also had deathstars up), to take down them or they would.

    So began the lovely endevour of taking down 5 deathstars, while paranoid of people catching our capitals we were using to move stuff. As the POS themselves unachored, 3 out of 5 of them became targets of people trying to catch the covert ops hauler by either cloaking themselves or logging off.

    And that is my experience with POS. Hate the damn things.

    Bane of 0.0 tbh.

    I remember when they first came out and people started setting them up, quite a few people quit back then over the state of it.

    Yeah you should just be able to drag POS mod into module slots, ala ship fitting.

    Then it tells you a timetable til they are online and you can rearrange their onlining time like your skill queue.

    And POS fuel levels should appear on corp assets somewhere.

    Logic, convenience and iterations in MY EVE!? An outrage sir!

    POSs must surely have been introduced as a CCP troll...

    I love getting half way though taking one down and then realising that you dont have full hanger roles and one of the hangers you cant access has stuff in it.

    Re: Control Towers

    on this topic, I've missed the sov changes with those anchored hub things coming in, what role do pos's have in sov warfare now? Can you still claim sov from a pos? Or is it a case of setting up a deathstar with the hub thing anchored by the side of it?

    Or are pos's now just used for moon goo jewing and that's about it?

    POS have nothing to do with sov anymore. TCU can be anchored at deathstars, not sure about IHUB.

    If it ain't mining or a staging tower, there's not much point in it being there.

    Piggybacking this thread.

    Is it worth using a POS refinery for ice over hauling to a station in 0.0 ?

    Refines perfectly @ pos so its really a question of hauling.

    Re: Control Towers

    Short answer: yes POS is better than station for ice. If you don't have a POS in system, compress it with a rorqual then haul it.
    Contract stuff to Seraphina Amaranth.

    Might wanna check marketplace for that.
    Some dude on EvE O was apparently selling his collection of Shadow Control Towers at knock down prices.
