|101. Question on laser ships - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
Since most PvP fits are omni-tanked, you have just as much chance to find a resistance hole with EM/Therm as anything else. It's more important to be able to apply that damage. If you had solid intel on an enemy fleet, you might be able to ref...

|102. LVL 4 Tengu / Rattlesnake - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
Either will be ridiculously OP for L4 missions. I suggest the Tengu. If you're buying an expensive ship for PvE, why not just get the ship that can also handle the highest end null sec/WH PvE as well? A properly blinged Tengu can solo The Maze 1...

|103. Sentry drones explanation? - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
To answer the question about missions. Yes, the Sentry Drone battleship is extremely common for L4's. The Rattlesnake with an MJD is very good. Sentries will usually knock down frigates as they burn directly at you. If they get too close recall/ab...

|104. What to do with ISK in Highsec? - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
Thorian makes a good point here. Much of Null (even someone's sov) is nearly abandoned and honestly easier to avoid fights in than high sec. People in null will obviously be threats, rather than having to worry about which of the 80 people in hig...

|105. If I don't like frigate PvP will I not like any PvP? - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
PvP takes many forms in Eve. Frigate PvP is only one aspect- although frankly it's a good one because they are highly versatile and useful. Firstly, just within 'frigate PvP' there is brawling vs kiting, the modifiers of various EWAR, fleet oper...

|106. Most 'beautiful' vessel...? - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
Prolly the Sansha ships just for being intimidating and ominous. Of all the ships in Eve Online, I don't think anyone would mistake a Sansha boat for friendly. If you looked out your shuttle window and saw a Phantasm on approach, you would have no...

|107. Gallente are good but.. - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
T3 cruiser. Take your pick. Grab a mobile depot and head out where ever the probe scanner takes you. You can refit from scanning ship and hacking boat, to cloaky/nullified travel mode, to uber tanked combat site runner- all in one hull, and with...

|108. Level 4 Nestor or abaddon? - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
If you are going to spend a wad of cash on something to be massively OP for high sec PvE, why not just get the ship that is massively OP for null sec PvE while you're at it? The T3 cruiser. Drop that billion isk for a Nestor on a Tengu and you c...

|109. Assault Frigates -- instead of a "bandaid", change the rol... - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
It's the same problem with their larger cousins, but in reverse. The HACs are so much better than the next larger class of ships- the battlecruiser- that BC fleets have become rare animals. This was called Ishtars Online for awhile, not Oracles ...

|110. What are some examples of some top tier sniper favoring races and sh... - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
As others have pointed out- true sniping is fairly well gimped in the current meta. Eve favors mobility and speed right now, and sitting virtually static trying to snipe isn't as viable as it once was. It's been a very long time since I've sat at ...

|111. What to do with ISK in Highsec? - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
Use that isk to GET OUT OF HIGH SEC One of the best things you could do is fire up a Covops or Astero and just go take a tour of New Eden's backwaters with a probe launcher. Think of the probe launcher as a content generator- there is a bunch of ...

|112. Your goal in EVE - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
My goal? That's a very good question. My goal when I came to Eve was to be a space pirate. I did that till I was -10. Then my goal became to fly in the really huge, shiny fleets in the Sov wars. I did that and participated in some of the bigg...

|113. What's the incentive to PVP? - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
Since I came to Eve specifically to PvP, I don't really need an incentive. The idea of being a space pirate appealed to me so I began playing with that goal in mind. Like so many others, I got sidetracked just trying to make isk enough to watch a ...

|114. Is the Rook/Falcon worth skilling into? - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
Both are very good ships that generate rivers of tears from your enemies. Both have excellent utility in a fleet as well. I almost always have a cyno fitted. Many recon pilots bring probes. Since your weapons really are secondary to that rack o...

|115. L4 Laser based mission ship - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
Riot Girl, Agreed. I haven't run L4's in years but when I did I used a regular ole Raven with T1 launchers and only as much T2 tank as I had skills for back then. Can't remember ever having to warp out with a BS tank in an L4 mission. While I'm ...

|116. New Pilot wants to venture into low/null sec - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
What I would suggest just to try out some time outside of high sec.....fit up a CovOps or Astero and go run hacking sites. The covops cloak makes it pretty easy to avoid fights. Yeah, a dedicated gate camp will always get you, but those are far ...

|117. Dumbest things you've done in EVE? - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
Been playing for years, so the list of stupid things I've done in Eve is a long one. I got an entire CFC sniper fleet welped on a gate during the Halloween War. Absolute slaughter. I can't believe I wasn't accused of being a spy and AWOXer. Neve...

|118. Null sec suicide roam - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
Sov null is a fine place to try hunting. Often players there get to be lazy/complacent when it comes to security and are often easier targets than anywhere else. Back when we were spread out all over the place, it was easy to sneak in, poach some ...

|120. Dear EVE from a trial player - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
+1 Jonah Gravenstein. If I had an isk for every time I've heard "Eve will die because newbs go back to WoW". I'd own a fleet of titans by now.
