I completed the preparations for my carrier move – systems recced, bookmarked, scouts and cyno’s in place. I then logged in my characters and waited for a quiet moment to perform the move. And waited. And waited. And waited some more.
After several attempts across a couple days I had to give up. It turned out the pirate group in the mid-point system had been war dec’d by another pirate group, and were being perma-camped in.
In the end I poured over Dotlan’s jump planner (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/jump) looking for new options, checking statistics, before settling on an extra quiet place in The Bleak Lands. I’d never actually visited that region before – the area I moved through was dead. I might have to revisit it at a later time. Within an hour my Carrier was finally parked safely in my Corp’s Low Sec base.
I then spent a few hours moving in a ton of fuel, setting up spare Cyno ships, and began gathering ships to be jumped down to 0.0.
