Things I've done to thwart gankers

  • Thrown my cargo overboard
  • Deliberately rammed some rocks to sink my boat
  • Sailed off the map as I was being chased – sailing off the edge of the map incurs more and more damage the further you go
  • Logged out while they were on my ship (I’m assuming my ship despawns when I log out … it didn’t have anything on it anyway)
