|541. So... soloists, how you doin'? - in Warfare & Tactics [original thread]
First- it's important to remember that I'm terrible..... Solo PvP is so much a lost art. Especially in the frigate class, as the smallest combat boat I generally see in null are BC's anymore. Blobs and blobs of BCs......... It's the double edge ...

|542. Why do EVE players love gankers so much? - in Warfare & Tactics [original thread]
Eve is a game. In a game you can do epic things you can't in real life. I will never be an NHL wingman, but I love playing hockey on the Xbox- never own a garage full of supercars but I spend hours turning laps in Forza. I can't actually fly spa...

|543. null-sec pvp sucks - in Warfare & Tactics [original thread]
Eve can be too big for it's own good sometimes. It's just spread out with a large amount of stuff to do. Hence, people are out there, but refuse to fight. They don't have to, really. If you see local blow up suddenly, you can simply go somewhere e...

|544. CCP! A lot of us want WiS - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
Ranger1, a good post- but I do have to nit-pick on one point... EVERYTHING in Eve is just a pop up menu box. That is the first thing that really struck me when I started playing-- that Eve is really just a series of pop up menus. So much so in fa...

|545. Why I cannot go to low-sec, null-sec, or w-space. - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
OP, I feel for you. I am far more casual at this game than virtually everyone I play Eve with. It does mean that I'm often the weak link in a fleet. It means I'm perpetually poor and it means I don't participate as much as others because I don't h...

|546. Hound Solo Bombing - in Warfare & Tactics [original thread]
yes, torpedoes are just another version of missile and function the same. (Someone double check me-- but I think Torpedoes and Rockets are unaffected by the Guided Missile Precision skill) Bombs operate differently. First only usable in null sec...

|547. Hi, new player here who is using missiles exclusively for my combat ships. - in Warfare & Tactics [original thread]
I'm primarily a missile user too and no one complains in my corp. The Drake is still the shining gem for us- Nanodrakes are always welcomed in any fleet I've been in, and with a module swap or two and T1 ammo- it's a 'win button' PvE ship to whip ...

|548. Hound Solo Bombing - in Warfare & Tactics [original thread]
SB's aren't strong for solo work. They are also better suited to working in Null Sec than Low Sec, as they get to use items only usable in Null- such as bombs. Most SB's (Hound included) lack much in the way of mid-slots for tackling gear, and t...

|549. Does experimental fits have any real value for pvp? - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
By sheer weight of numbers, pretty much every possible fitting combination has been tried. Only very new ships may hold a completely untried fit. So 'experimental' is only experimental TO YOU. But experimenting is much more fun than copying fits...

|550. Does experimental fits have any real value for pvp? - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
Virtually everything in Eve is viable, just some things slightly better. The beauty is that you can make any of the things in Eve work really well if you build for it and play to it's strengths. On a more esoteric note, it's actually some fun NOT...

|551. How many ships do you have? - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
Retriever from when I was a noob (more of one, I guess) Hoarder and Mammoth from when I was a noob salvage Thrasher Caracal I ran lvl 2 missions in Drake I ran level 3 missions in 3-4 half fitted PvP frigates couple Maledictions my beloved Hound...

|552. posted to wrong section, please remove - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
back on page one, Dane El had a really great post. I'm a casual player, I'm sure even I put more effort into Eve than many others. This topic has been at the forefront of my experience in Eve all along. Anytime you play with other people, ther...

|553. Missioners: What is your goal? - in Missions & Complexes [original thread]
Why run missions? To pay for PvP. Simply put. I'll PvE to pay for PvP but that's about it. I've spent most of my time in Eve running missions. Classic care bear but not by choice so much as just biding my time until I had the skills up, the incom...

|554. Should there be better rewards for participating(but not winning) in PvP? And a... - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
Like many, I am against fundamentally changing the nature of Eve. It is what it is and should remain. However, I completely agree with the point the OP and others are making. While I accept the unrestricted PvP as part and parcel of Eve, it is u...

|555. Why Amamake? - in Warfare & Tactics [original thread]
It's been said- It's on the road to Rens, the major trade hub for Min. There are also a heap of mission agents in the Rens area that send you into low sec around there. You get good piracy on people feeding the market or buying stuff off it. Th...

|556. Is it possible to pvp good without tech 2? - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
the answer is....kinda. Being able to fit a T2 tank is most important. In many cases, the Meta 4 module is preferred over the T2 variant for weapon systems. Being able to use faction ammo greatly enhances damage output, and usually doesn't requir...

|557. Missions - What would you do about them? - in Missions & Complexes [original thread]
Speaking of the lower end (level 1-4) missions, I would make a mechanic that scales enemy strength according to the number or size of a fleet (go by total mass maybe?). You could perhaps do away with the mission level system entirely that way. T...

|558. lvl2+ missions in destroyers - in Missions & Complexes [original thread]
I have to disagree with the King on this. From a purely mission running standpoint, there is little reason for T2 modules at all. Missions at least thru level 3's are already a trivial matter to finish. Rarely do you need to actually fit modules s...

|559. lvl2+ missions in destroyers - in Missions & Complexes [original thread]
Most folk skip the destroyer as a primary mission runner for level 2's, usually going with a cruiser. I suggest this as well, I only use destroyers for salvaging these days. Their tank just isn't there for the larger/longer missions. However, most...

|560. Really torn between Minmatar and Amarr - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
No race is 'wrong' in Eve, just cross train. I like to use Amarr armor tanked frigs like the Punisher, but with AC guns mounted. Sort of best of both worlds there. Lasers are cool and all, but due to cap limits, usually only viable on Amarr boat...
