|161. here's what I basically did when I started - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
What I did when I started Eve some 75mil SP ago, was train anything that sounded fun or interesting, and not worry about power-gaming Eve. Some things I trained didn't pan out and I never use those skills anymore, but they are not 'wasted' in the...

|162. Faction war, or null sec? - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
I find FW to be a very mixed bag. All too often all it does is teach people to fit stabs and run away the instant anything shows up on their D-Scan. Endlessly plexing is no more interesting than running anoms in null sec, and usually less profitab...

|163. Battleships, and their use - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
Some interesting points there. I like the idea of a role bonus for smartbombs actually. Or at least some level of immunity to them for the hull, so that using them in co-ordinated tactics doesn't just mean having to uber-tank for one damage type...

|164. Battleships, and their use - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
The death of the BS, and to a large degree, the BC class is really a two-fold issue. 1) Drones should never have been made into a main weapon system in Eve. Real battleships carry not only a main battery of big guns, but also a host of smaller p...

|165. Null Sec Sovereign Space - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
You should be robbing Sov space blind. That is clearly what CCP intended with the recent rounds of new modules and ships. You have siphon units, two mining frigates, and an exploration frigate that warps cloaked. Everything you need to sneak in, g...

|166. What is EVE like at "End Game"? - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
What I consider 'end-game' in Eve is to rival, even eclipse the NPC lore and empires. We've done that. The superpowers in sov null vastly exceed the NPC empires. We have created our own high sec, basically. (life for the average joe in a sov null ...

|167. "The Skillpoint System and You" - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
The length of time it takes to be good at Eve, to access it's higher end content, and to experience the diversity of it's content is a primary strength of the game. Eve needs BETTER players, not just MORE players. For most of us 'bittervets', E...

|168. I'm a new player looking for purpose and income, what can I do? - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
Join a large null sec alliance like Goonswarm. All any null alliance asks is that you show up to PvP to take or defend their sov...this gives your PvP a purpose. You may die in every fleet- but you will do so for a reason. Maybe you hero tackled...

|170. Does anyone want to practice pvp with me? - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
Just go to low sec, ask the local pirates for a fight. They will oblige. Pirates spend a lot of time watching ships go by because of gate guns. They will happily fight it out in an honorable brawl somewhere. They are also PvP geeks and will be equ...

|171. Skill Progression for Frigates - in Skill Discussions [original thread]
Like Dalloway Jones, the only concern I would mention is the addition of CovOps like bombers to your frigate plan. Bombers use the missile tree for torpedoes while the frigates you mention are turret based. If your primary focus is on gunnery, als...

|172. Are you addicted to SP? - in Skill Discussions [original thread]
Personally, I am not. I am addicted to being able to fly as many things as possible and enjoy the diversity of the Eve ship line up. This means that while I can fly almost any sub capital ship- I am not really 'perfect' at many. The real issue w...

|173. Armor/Shield Compensation Skills? - in Skill Discussions [original thread]
Resists are powerful especially in the context of a fleet with logi in it. The logi is essentially taking the place of buffer, so slowing down incoming damage is more useful. Most PvP fits will consider the use of logi in a fleet, and concentrate ...

|174. New PVP pilot. Which races should I choose? - in Skill Discussions [original thread]
Focus on a ROLE, not a race. By knowing what role you want to play in a fleet, you have already defined many specific skills you will need. Often the choice of race follows since some ships in a class are decidedly better than others. That said,...

|175. What ship you had most fun with? - in Ships and Modules [original thread]
Dictors. Easily the most fun I have is zipping around, farting bubbles, and blasting support and tackle ships......until I explode in a ball of fire. I can fly most any sub-cap, but Dictors are the most fun. They are welcome in every null sec fle...

|176. Advice for a new explorer venturing into low sec - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
Dont venture into low sec....move there. Being a local has distinct advantages over being a tourist. Knowing the lay of the land, as well as getting a feel for the other locals is invaluable intelligence. It makes the difference between making i...

|177. Battleships, and their use - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
Battleships generally have a drone bay to deal with smaller targets. Drone based battleships really get the full range of damage by being able to field a weapon specific for every type of ship size in the form of Lights, Meds, and Heavy/Sentries. ...

|178. Null-cruiser - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
+1 Ralph It may not be as efficient as fitting specifically for rats...but...most players hunting ratters will assume you are PvE fit and can become the prey if you are ready for PvP. Hopefully some day CCP will close the gap between PvE and PvP ...

|179. CCP PvP ? - in Warfare & Tactics [original thread]
ShahFluffers is correct, although it seems a practice that they don't do much anymore. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0p0qYw4XRYo
It would be great for CCP to form a roam in say, Jove ships. Giving players a chance to get unique kill and loss...

|180. The games position on scams - in EVE New Citizens Q&A [original thread]
The number of people actually scammed in Eve is tiny. In the many years I've been playing, I've never been scammed. Common sense applies in Eve as it does in real life. No one worth joining will ask for anything more than an API. Whether it's a s...
