Playing the Loosing Hand:
Situation -Empire v Privateer - Lady Royal ( fuel tank 670 ) sits empty. If I pull along side of it ROB happens before my ships tow.
Even If I sneak up on it ( cloak- tow ) ROB happens before tow. Only answer I am coming up with is have more fuel than the Privateer can steal BUT then the Lady Royal just move away before I can tow. Is there another way?

LR needs to have a cloaked ship with it.
Cloaked ship needs a reason to pass fuel to it can rob.
If nothin there does it rob to catch something that is not there? So having 1 fuel and nothing to rob.
If it has fuel to rob or has robbed and taken fuel it can be attacked.
But Privateer may rob then tow it away meaning two cloaked ships. But may only have one ship near it to pass the fuel only.

Multiple eventualities as there may be multiple ships with the LR. It may be towing a cloaked ship so it runs out of fuel but keeping the LR.

The LR may have 20 ships waiting for a trap.

You could attack the LR. Which is out of fuel and nothing happens and you get robbed next turn. You could also kill it but be robbed by the other ships.

You could have a cloaked ship and tow of the LR. But get robbed. Or if it does not rob you have the LR.

You could attack and tow at the same turn. laying up multiple ships to be robed after the tower gets robbed and have multiple ships to rob all the ships for the loss of the LR.

You could lay multiple 150 LY around the LR to catch any ships going to it.

You could also ignore the LR as it could be tying up 20 ships waiting for you to attack it.

Just realized you said sneak up on it. So if you gave a cloaked ship there is a way. Host order 1. Privateer transfers. 2. Rob. 3. Enemy transfers. 4 movement. So if you transfer netrium to the Lady then move to it with enemy set pri you will kill it.
