>>858911
Stealing ore from nullsec refineries to build T2 stuff. I travel throughout a different region every day checking which refineries are pulling in moon ore, which have their asteroid belts up, etc then document them in a spreadsheet and pass it along to my corp.

There's not always a lot of asteroid fields up since corps tend to mine them as soon as they pop, but some get lazy after a while and let them stay in space. I got a fleet together and ran off with 180k m3 of Ytterbite from Fraternity space using Ventures before someone reported us on intel and we had to filament out. It refined into enough Thullium to make about 18k Photonic Metamaterials, which turned in to about 9000 Photonic Microprocessors, which was enough to make 50 or so Prospects. It only took our fleet of 13 around 20 minutes to mine all of that and we didn't lose anyone, not even the hauling Miasmos.

What's the fastest ship in EVE? I'm using a 50mn Punisher right now to make tactical bookmarks, but is there something better?

To improve my piloting skills. A pretty boring answer but I've ended up in a group that's probably above my skill level and I find myself dying to stupid mistakes more often than I'd like.

Two most fundamental things that improve your piloting:
- only use shortcuts to cycle and overheat modules, that way you can rotate camera and double click in space to your heart's content;
- configure your overview and the overall UI layout to make it comfortable. The most important part of it is brackets.
Do that first, the rest comes naturally with experience. Shortcuts alone automatically put you in top 3% of pilots, I swear.
Also record your battles. I use OBS and start recording right after undocking because I keep forgetting about it in the heat of battle.
>>
>>858978
Rebinding keys is also insanely useful, F keys are okay, but shift-f keys is a bit much and there really isn't anything using the QWERASDFZXCV keys that couldn't be rebound

I pretty much have it set up so QWER are offensive modules, guns, point, web, ect, ASDF are defensive modules like booster and cloak, and ZXCV is other modules like hardeners and tracking computers or probe launchers, ect.

Once you get a general idea of where you want major module types to go it becomes second nature and much easier then shift and ctrl or going down to F8

Yeah, a basic grid layout and alt+key shortcuts to toggle overheat. It makes even ships with like 12 active overheatable modules a breeze to fly. The F keys can be used for things like switching modes on tactical destroyers, overheating racks (useful for logi reps), drone control, etc.
>>
>>858978
>>858981
Thanks for the advice. I'm good at using the F keys but I still click for overheating, which is quite cumbersome, and I really should look to rebind some other buttons. Will have to figure out my own keybinds though as I've become accustomed to V for D-scan and F to assign my drones.
I've been lazy about setting up OBS too, I know it's useful and I used to dream of making videos. Maybe that Bringing Solo Back video competition will motivate me to try harder.
>>
here's some elite pvp advice. everyone who says to never use the orbit or keep at range commands is a retard. they have a use
>>
>>858994
Yeah but its also bad practice in PVP

A close orbit is good to counter slower guns, keep at range is useful for kiting and range control, but just pushing either of those in a general sense is liable to get you oneshot by sniper nerds
>>
it's not bad practice, it's fine a lot of the time. bad practice would be manually piloting all the time when there's no benefit
>>
>>859007
Moderation is key, I suppose. I'm the guy who wants to improve and I've died a few times because I failed at manually piloting when I should've just orbited, but if I only use orbit/keep at range I'll get fucked when I'm in a situation where I really need to manually pilot.
>>
being good is knowing when to do which, that's all I'm saying. so many shitters say manual pilot all the time

how did your fleet deal with null belt rats in ventures?
>>
>>859161
We had a Ferox to clear them with which also had a mining boost on it. It was a Ferox, a Buzzard, a Miasmos, and 11 (10 because one guy couldn't stay connected) Ventures. Buzzard scouted a route through a wormhole chain, fleet traveled to the system through it, Miasmos hauled ore back and forth a couple of times through it. We had a HS-C2-C1-NS route, so it was really quick. Took a Pochven filament for a quick exit upon seeing the first player on local.

We only had one rat wave spawn, and as far as I can tell, belt rats target combat ships first over miners but will target switch occasionally. As long as the non-battleships die quickly and the Ventures are orbiting, everything should be ok.

When mining in a big group like this, you don't have long before someone checks things out. There's no way to hide there's 15 players in space on the map, doesn't matter if it's a local checking the system to defend it or another fleet roaming to get easy kills, you're going to attract attention and have to leave. There's no moon ore in the game that's valuable enough to justify constantly relocating, but it's the only way to get it so if you want to build things that use it, you don't have a choice.

>>
>>859509
Yeah, but it's not all that profitable when you consider the time it takes to scout a place. It was one of my goals in EVE to find a way to reliably get T2 materials without having to deploy a structure of my own though, so I can say it works.

Eventually I'd like to try and do this with barges, but we still have the problem that there's no way to compress moon ore without an Orca or Rorqual and an Orca can't jump on its own. If I had money to blow, I'd say trying to bridge a Hulk fleet in with a Rorqual, mining for 30 minutes, and then bridging the fleet back out could be a way to efficiently mine the ore where it's actually profitable, but that assumes the Rorqual actually makes it out with the ore. Each Hulk mining Loperite pulls 560m ISK/hour and it would take between 5.5 to 56 Hulk-hours to mine out a field.

Prospects would be far more reliable, but you'd have to manually haul things in and out with a Miasmos constantly and it only takes 35 minutes for a single Prospect to fill a Miasmos's cargohold.

Gila is a noob trap.
do them in a 1300dps Typhoon or something instead, Typhoon goes fast enough that it doesnt need much tank. Praxis would work well too, but Praxis has the CPU of a 90s Thinkpad.
Eventually upgrade to an Armageddon Navy or a Rattlesnake or something.
make sure you're dropping MTUs and bookmarking them, Forsaken Hubs in even an Ishtar makes 100mil/hr if you're looting & salvaging everything as well.
bookmark like 90min worth of sites at once then go back with a Noctis to clean up all the wrecks.
doing this 1/3rd of your ratting income alone will be minerals (gotten from melting down random shit loot) and salvage, which you can use to manufacture stuff or to sell to thirsty industryfags that live down there with you.

get PI planets going on all 3 character slots on your account for passive income. assuming you're in null, 3 char slots doing PI there would be making you at least 1bil a month passively for ~2min of clicking buttons a day and 15min of hauling every 2 weeks.

later on, do some market trading by watching updates and market trends in some things, investing 500mil or 1bil into an item/mineral/ship and cashing out a few months later when its gone up in price.
there's a big nullsec war happening right now so already a lot of tech2 ships have doubled in price since last week.
making money in Eve without burning out involves diversifying your income.
if you just grind one thing all the time and nothing but you'll burn out and hate the game.
>>
>>860143
oh also, belt ratting can be a nice change of pace, as well as data/relic sites or wormhole day tripping.
killing rats in belts gives you a chance to get a faction spawn every 30min-1h or so, or hauler spawns (npc hauler with like 15mil units of minerals inside) or officer spawns if you're really really really lucky.
faction spawns can sometimes drop some nice shit, like rare implants or faction modules worth 100s of mil.

Thanks for the ideas. I've fucked around with a Praxis but it seems way slower than the Gila, although I probably have a shit fit. I am part of the war so it's a little dangerous to be flying around anything too expensive right now. Do you know of a good guide for PI? I have never touched it. Or if you have a Typhoon fit.
>>
>>860257
Not him, but you could try Rapid Heavy Missile launchers. Even with alpha skills, Praxis can break over 1000dps with Rapid Heavy Missiles.
>>
>>860106
Unless you're going to be using mainly battleships for pvp, just head into abyssals and finish training missiles/drones/caldari+gallente cruiser.
>>
>>860106
Invest your money into market trading and learn how that shit works

Buy low, sell high, it takes fucking forever to see real profits but its better than your liquid isk sitting in your wallet doing nothing

As for active gameplay you're pretty much doing the best ISK per hour in the game already solo, the only thing else is pretty much multiboxing and botting, and thats just gay
>>
>>860338
Oh and if you don't know where to start, flipping PI is usually a good go-to since most people just AFK that shit and dump it on the market in bulk, usually the assholes who own perimeter will buy shit to flip P2 and P3s into P4s, just don't try to do it yourself because the perimeter PI taxes are absurd if you're not the owner

It is funny to me that so many people admit to this without understanding that they are admitting to cheating.
>>
>>861947
Let's be honest with ourselves, would me not doing it prevent others from doing it as well? It's EVE, multiboxing, automation, and botting ruin the game, you have to accept if you want to play it you need to use every tool at your disposal.

Previously before writing one, I had simply played back the video and manually updated the database by hand, afterwards it did it for me in real time. Imagine knowing exactly who came in a wormhole, when they did it, and what they're flying, it's a service any wormhole group would pay a ludicrous amount of ISK for.

Personally, I was really hoping CCP would just cut down on the multiboxing by letting players see what's on the other side of gates and wormholes, but it looks like that's never going to happen. If it makes you feel better, I now do the same thing on a smaller scale in Thera, tracking who's active and what's being camped.
>>
>>861948
I still don't understand how they hate the game

>>861965
Except it's not, or at least impossible to ban. Streaming EVE is perfectly legal, otherwise Uedama Scout would've had his channel closed long ago. If I recorded in real time his local chat window and had a program parse it, should he get banned? I couldn't be banned because I might not even play EVE, I just made use of a public resource and logged the results to a third party website.

And that's just the thing. It's fine to have a cloaked scout sitting on a gate or wormhole. It's fine to stream EVE. It might not be fine to have a program parse the video you're streaming and log it, but if you don't even play the game and the person streaming doesn't know you're doing it, then how is CCP going to take action? Go after the guy who's not doing anything wrong? Ban someone who doesn't even play the game?

ah so it's okay to cheat and ruin the game because you won't get caught?
> If I recorded in real time his local chat window and had a program parse it, should he get banned?
You should for using automation, CCP should also have a streaming rule that local and other system info should be hidden.

Again, cheating because they cannot catch you is a shitty argument. You are ruining the game.

So your solution is to automate and bot intel collection?

Yes, cheating does grant you things that is more lucrative than regular gameplay.

For who? For you? For some player who looks for "content"? If anything, making travel and content safer for players doing it is a net benefit to the game. It sounds more like sour grapes that you aren't benefiting from it, or perhaps you're too lazy to set up your own alt farm for it.

>>861976
Please do, it's already been reported several times by people who've caught wind of it. CCP doesn't give a fuck. If they did, they would fix the root of the problem because a ban won't stop it.

If mass botting didn't make CCP sit up and make fundamental changes to the game, one guy running a dozen alts to log travel isn't going to get their attention either. It would be a benefit to the game if it did, but everyone knows it's not going to happen. Just go and benefit from it instead and stop seething over things you can't control.

He does make like 25b ISK a month doing it though, and that's after PLEXing all of his characters. I don't think it's a good use of 100 hours per month, but I can't deny the results.

>people joined his corp just to awox his orca.
What's awox? They blew it up? Why?
>>
>>864211
awox is slang for popping blues, basically.
Awox was a person who joined corps and killed his corpmates over and over again before they caught on and could kick him. He repeatedly did this and thus the term AWOX was defined.

originally it meant tackling a corpmate so you could kill him with an out-of-corp alt, but nowadays it basically means shooting at blues.

Awox still plays, someone saw him around the other day.
>>
>>864211
>Why?
because mining is cancer, especially highsec mining corps which are basically just a tax/discount mineral scam.
3bil a month for 30 hours a week of mining?
a group of 9 people could make that much running wormhole sites together for an hour or 2.
mining is so bad, that you literally make minerals faster just spinning an ishtar in null and melting down the loot.
>>
>>864211
awoxing is getting a character in a corp so they can tackle high value targets to destroy usually extremely expensive null ratter fits. Usually we got someone to betray their corp by telling them their corp was gay and that they could get a lot of isk by blowing up their corp mates and could join pizza. The way this worked is that in eve online if you are online and not in a station you can't be kicked out of a corp, by getting an alliance member to log in continously after downtime they could tackle high value ratting ships as long as they cared to beat a corp manager at logging in(this was easy to do as down time is at a very bad american and european hour)
>>
>>864236
>>864217
Literally why would anyone play the game where the point is to fuck people over by pretending you're their friend like a psycho retard?
>>
>>864221
It's only bad because it's done so commonly, which drives down the price of minerals to near worthlessness. Suicide ganks in high security space actually help more competent miners to some degree like this, it reduces the amount of minerals in the system and causes the prices to rise.

The problem is there's so many people mining in high sec and only the incompetent, AFK ones get caught. Suicide ganks will never effectively hit those massive 60 man operations that mine out a 56 day moon pull in under an hour twice a day because it's impossible to cause them enough economic damage to get them to stop. Instead, suicide ganks hit the bottom rung of players who can't afford to replace their barge when it goes boom, which is the exact wrong thing to do for a healthy playerbase in EVE, pushing everyone to join these massive alliances instead of actually doing shit on their own.

Mining in general needs to have similar difficulty to doing it in lowsec on a large scale, if minerals were all priced relative to how Isogen is mining would be worth doing. Sure, it might make a T1 frigate cost 2m ISK, but that's the tradeoff to making the profession worthwhile.
>>
>>864221
Oh, and I agree, unless you're in a massive HS or sov null Hulk fleet with support, it's far more efficient to just farm L4s for loot/bounties instead. I can literally pull around 120m an hour doing them in a T1 battleship via bounties and salvage and get about 40m ISK in minerals from melting down smart bombs and other junk. The worst part is that EVE will never improve on the industry side of the game because mining having value would mean people would have to get out there and do it in significant numbers and only about 20% of the playerbase has any interest in it whatsoever.

Ask your corpmates what they do and see if there are any group money making activities but your best options for solo are PI, C3/C5 sites, exploration or gas mining. Could also haul fit ships in and put them up on contract, doctrine ships and sabres should always be in demand.

The new structures really don't take a whole lot of extra work to reinforce, unless you mean it'll defend itself better. You might be better off just shaking some hands and getting someone else to defend it instead of putting up the cash to upgrade something that may or may not pay off.
>>
>>864989
It's more that whoever decides to ref it will need to commit more resources to do so, which will attract locals/3rd parties to form & fight. The deterrent is there already but the response window for an astra is too small. Right now astras get reffed by a single Zirn or Nag in off-hours & only one defensive timer to make up for it. We won several fights but lost the last one.
This is also in FW, but I can't get into more details without revealing who/where/etc. It probably wouldn't be difficult to narrow it down from that description.
I don't necessarily think the investment itself is strictly worth it but the last astra was incredibly valuable to the FW grind, and 5 days of asset safety has tied up billions in ships that most people can't just go re-buy.
>>
why do i keep getting ads on this site claiming to double my isk

>>
>>865003
That's my biggest gripe with structures, if you're in a small corp, it's a huge pain in the ass to defend because you don't have people on frequently enough to do anything about it, nor will the reinforcement timer always be conducive to getting people together to respond. And then it's a war of attrition, people come by, reinforce your structure, people get on at the appointed hour to defend it, and no attacker shows up. And then the cycle repeats, the attacker reinforcing it with no intention of committing a force to finish it, and it just wears you down to the point where you don't bother anymore.

That's why I always wished there were smaller/cheaper structures that were about on the level of a small POS, you can commit the time to reinforce it and loot everything from it, but it takes time and most corps will get enough value out of it that putting up another a few days later is just the cost of doing business. Most groups can remove a POS, but unless they want to commit to a sustained operation to keep doing it, they're eventually going to shrug their shoulders and let it remain. Structures are priced too high out of that range where they start to attract bigger blocs that make it impossible to hold for a small one without signing your life away to an existing alliance.

I eventually caved and made a deal with an existing bloc for defense, I fucking hate having to sign up with them but at least I can run my structure as a freeport so the rest of players in the region don't have to deal with that bullshit. They can just enjoy using it without being tied to it.

>>865116
There's a certain point where multiboxing becomes practical. For instance, when your ship starts to cost 3b ISK, you have to ask yourself if you could accomplish more spending 2.5b on a second sub and flying two 200m ISK ships. That calculus of subscription time having a price in game is a big reason why multiboxing is so common, because after you start dealing with large amounts of money extra characters becomes a commodity like any other.

>>huff gas, like 60mil/hr

>>run burners in NPC null for 200mil/hr
requires large time investment in acquiring the standings and at least 3 accounts to do them properly, lest you wallow in poverty wages single boxing it
>>rat in nullsec for 120mil/hr
this is a retarded estimate, either your ishtar ratting and getting ~80m/hr depending on space and escalation luck, or your ratting in a larger ship and making more then 120m/hr
>>solo rat C3 sites in a drake/praxis/gila for 60mil/hr
solo c3 ratting in a gila/praxis nets closer to 300m an hour, I did it when I was a newbro in 2019.

Good advice overall though
>>
>>865233
60m/hr is reasonable for any gas site with T2 scoops, but then you run the problem of depleting gas sites too quickly and lose a lot of income due to having to locate new ones. Of course, with T2 scoops, you can pull almost 120m/hr on expensive gas sites (C320 or about 1/3 of k-space lowsec gas sites).

That estimate on abyssals is retarded though, unless you're triple boxing T6s or going solely by the best possible outcomes. More likely you'll get 400-500m/hr singleboxing T6s or the same triple boxing T4s. And C6 wormholes with escalations can pull a large group several billion per hour but there's a lot of setup involved, you need capitals to escalate, the payouts are split between a bunch of players, and you're limited by how many sites there are in your system unless you're raiding other peoples' wormholes, and then you're probably not going to escalate the sites.

You need AB to fight in ESS, but you also need a tackle and a MWD to be able to fight elsewhere, so you can't really fit 2x LSE.
Solo pvp wise ESS is such a mixed bag. On one hand it gives nullbabbies a clear incentive to fight you, and if they blue ball you you at least get the loot. On the other hand the inside of an ESS is a gimmicky environment that promotes gimmicky fits - a 100mn full tank shield AC Hurricane is actually perfectly viable, for example. I would prefer if it was a regular deadspace like in FW, and the scramming sphere would only activate if you use a key.

I don't know why we can't just get a BPO for something similar, surely a ship that has equal bonuses to all turrets/launchers and can be shield/armor fit wouldn't be game breaking. Fuck, some Minmatar ships could do that at once point in time before their rebalance.

What is the easiest class of wormhole for solo living (me and my alt)? What statics should I look for?
>>
>>868153
C1 is what you want if you're only there for the PI and industry, otherwise the combat loot isn't worth the time. C2 is the absolute minimum you should go with for combat, and ideally go to a C3.

If you're trying to live out of one solo, look in to freeported wormholes, there's a few corps that maintain freeported structures in low class wormholes you can use for PI just beware that they can go up in flames if you go AFK. The best thing to do about that is to store everything in an alpha alt flying a large cargo hauler and keep no ships except what you've boarded in there, that way if you log out for a few months and the structure gets blown up you don't lose anything.
>>
I keep trying to get into this game every few years just cause I like the universe and stuff but I'm too autismo for group content.

find a freeport or something, there's a discord that keeps tracks of all the known freeports and wormholers often band together to help defend them.

C1 with null static. Mass restrictions will guarantee that you won't be evicted unless 100~ stealth bombers drop on your citadel.

It's going to be hard, though. "The best ship is friendship" isn't a meme. Solo players don't have the same network of friends that corps do, and that will leave you vulnerable to getting your shit kicked in.

Daytripping in a T3/Stratios/Astero/Covops is unironically the best option and will save you isk in the long run (unless you're doing PI or whatever).

Should a gang be able to cause more “trouble” for or “disrupt” a sovnull system other than just emptying out the ess bank? It would serve as a check for alliances spreading too thin and not defending their space. As it is now it’s just scaring ratters/miners into a citadel, emptying the bank if they refuse to undock, and… that’s it.

I'm not sure if I should just give in and start recruiting people for my own corp, signing away most of my time to manage a 30-40 man group living in a C4 or just drop out.

>>

Actually the more I think about it the better the idea sounds imagine this: we takeover their ccorp culture when they are small and oust their troons, sure existing leadership may rob the alliance resources and run but if we take it over we could change Dreddit to Clover make the dino green and oust any of the retired oldfags from comms. Once people respond (they always do) and kick us out of our space we go into wormhole space and become a shadow, a myth, a fable of a plague. By that point it doesn't matter if we just collapse or if we grow and attack. Either way we make our diseased mark on the game.

The idea is sound, but I don't think you realize the effort it would take. A lot of the types running null corps have legit management skills IRL, the only way you're going to topple the well-oiled machine is by starting a cult of personality. You need people to gravitate towards you from your charisma, establish those para-social relationships streamers have, and then slowly inoculate them to your line of thinking.

I'm talking very slowly, like step one is to gather up a dedicated following, step two is to push the division between your group and everyone else, step three is forming your own thing somewhat apart from the rest of the group. By the time leadership realizes what's going on (Because most of them are pretty hands off so long as their subgroups are answering call to arms and paying taxes), it will be too late for them to shut things down and bring everyone back into the fold, so the best they can do is deal with you politically and try and keep you dependent on them. The whole thing could take years.

End result though is that you ensnare a small chunk of a nullbloc's playerbase and either rent null from an unaligned group like Frat (Which is gay, but marginally better than the shitfest that is goons et al) or claim a wormhole which if you only take a single one will eventually leave you with finite resources to exploit and require exceptional leaders to get content to players.

You'd think everyone would want to lead, but it's not the case; most people want to sit back and be a lineman and not have to think. The type of people who become leadership are almost all universally arrogant or narcissistic and only take the position to pad their egos, which creates the problem the alliance you just split from in the first place had: They had to promote you to a leader because no one else would do the job, and now you're going to be on the receiving end.

It's because the word "shit" is almost always being used, when people mean "stuff". So people needed a new word for "bad stuff", and since "shit" was such a popular word, they now use "dogshit".
>shit=stuff
>dogshit=bad stuff
It's demeaning, and belittling kind of expression. It have it's place though, because "bullshit" is already commonly used word, so tying tying animal feces to negative concepts is not a new thing. Also if you really want to complain about it, why use the word "shit" at all to begin with, when you are not talking about excrement?

I made 6bill on my first month solo. Mostly combat sites and escalations, some exploration (now even high have 10m+ boxes) and high/low/wh gas sites. A little bit of abyssals, on which I actually lost much more than I made, as I got impatient and upped a tier or two too much. Mix things up, so you don't burn out, and you can easily plex. Take up reading, pin a window above you game, and just harvest fullerite in wh, it's only 25m/50mins as alpha, T1 scoops, and venture, but you literally do nothing but read, while it does the job itself, and when that is done, you can just do stuff you actually want to. Also I recommend just not to buy anything expensive, it will haunt you if you lose it, and drive you toward more risk seeking casino behaviour, trying to get back your losses. Always fly the cheapest thrash that can get the job done, even in high sec, if it can be seen you have something valuable, some russian will gank you just for shits and giggles. Of course you will gradually grow to hate russians more and more, as they are mostly the ones who abuse new players. You might start to hope for a hot war between NATO and Russia, so if nothing else at least those fuckers get rangebanned, it's normal, any prolonged interaction with russians does that. I fucking hate russians.

I miss EvE. Played from 2008 to 2011 and left with ~2000 kills.

I was with an alliance that placed 2nd in 2011 tourney. We lost to Pandemic, but in space we never lost to them, not once. Non caps only, we didn't do cap grind - it was a pure PvP alliance.

If you're from that time period, and you flew in nullsec you heard of us.

Things I've done in eve:
> Take battleships out with frigate solo
> Win 30 vs 150 man fleet fights with no losses, constantly

on that note, why is pvp so shit in this game? there's no actual skill and winners are always determined by how much money they spent to get max skills and a slightly more expensive fit than whatever they're fighting

i saw some vargur faggot shittalking in local about how he's a pvp god and zkill shows him only being able to kill shit that costs below ~60% of his 2.6b vargur. why even bother with pvp (outside of sov) if this is the case? it also seems that nobody in eve even subconsciously understands this and thinks if they died enough times they'd magically become a pvp god too
>>

This.

I agreee but this has potential. We need someone on the inside who would commit to this long term. Also we shouldn't care about the end result, the main thing is to take it over and cause chaos. Who cares if we destroy the corp and fuck renting, we come, we kill and when we run out of their stockpile we go our own way.

> yeah you are so skilled to officer-fit

At the time Machariel was 800mil and total fit was maybe 2bil.
There was one expensive faction module - i forget which.

I've done similar things with Cynabal worth about 700mil total. Key is not getting into something you can't get out of, stretch them out toward you with false hope of a kill (pretend to run away), then just salvo until one cracks. They want revenge... and you have a fight. Use gates. Try to fight while aligned to one of your safe spots / sun / belt.

Set up safe spots pre-emptively and try to lure them into that area, then just jump around until they run out of ships or start using their brains.

> 30 3b vargurs v assortment of shit that doesnt even cost half as much
It was mostly cruisers, command ship, some frigs and support. Key was very well trained support. Like I mentioned - we placed 2nd against Pandemic in 2011. Whole alliance was composed of very tuned players. Zero tolerance for random bullshit ships/fits in fleet.

Don't know, probably nothing. Just what he says is happening was not happening at all back then. We hunted idiot piñatas who fitted faction and didn't know how to fly it. Its like a gift of the eve universe, would be a shame to let it go.

You can kill a vaga in a ceptor if you're good and lucky enough. Just get under its guns and take drones out in time. 220's wont track you fast enough at 500m orbit, and if you manage to fit tracking disruptor... you're home free.

I logged in 2 years ago, and killed some low sec ratter in Navy Brutix, I was in a frig, game looked more or less the same but with more premium features UI spam and way more people who have no idea what they are doing...

Just can't get back into it, so fucking boring now with PUBG and other stuff out.
>>
You can still get the great fights you're talking about, don't act like they've vanished. Last night my corp beat two null fleets back to back despite being outnumbered. We weren't blingy either, just get out there and fight.

It's always funny to me how scrubs like you can't grasp the concept of pvp in this game. It's always "they're blingy as fuck", "they have maxed out skills", "they have snakes", "they use unfair kitey ships", and during the offrgrid links era it was of course "they have a link alt".
>>871117
I've been playing since 2012 and have also seen my share of solo vs gangs, small scale vs fleets, and competing in tournaments.
Nullbears in general have become noticeably better at pvp, and by that I mean that they've learnt to use easy and effective ships. Competent small scale gangs still rule supreme, but solo pvp has become more difficult and less fun.
What's really sad is that there are no medium scale roamings anymore. It's either nimble small gangs that rarely see each other or guys like Hydra who roll wormholes and escalate with very strong battleship comps.

speaking of skilled PVP, which faction are you guys in FW?
i'm still 50/50 between helping gaylente or minmatar
>>
>>871138
You're right, but I do miss the times when you could undock in a cheap t1 cruiser and reliably find fights in nullsec. Especially the few months right after the interceptor rebalance when tons of people were flying inties - you could duel all day long.

Amarr. There's a more than a few regular FCs in both TZs, and actually have a decent range of skill, so you can choose how autistic you want to be and still have people to fleet with. I cannot understate how much of a fun, content rich meat-grinder Auga has been, just DST some ships out there and start PVPing.

To be fair to the noobs, the game does make an impression that "skills" are the char points you accumulate. There is some undeniable value to that, but in long run - actual gameplay skill is the real skill. I was a dumb brawler jumping from lowsec to null to find fights losing 2 ships a day, because I got tired of popping ratters and miners in lowsec with my Ishtar, but real PVP skill, baiting, gate strategies, scouting ahead, using bookmarks strategically - all that was learned in Curse flying with organized maniacs.

I can see why someone would assume "officer modules", alts and other grindy bullshit is what they need to be effective.

> What's really sad is that there are no medium scale roamings anymore.
Sadge. My fav was running a med fleet of canes, cynabals and 1-2 scimis.

Whats the political composition now? Is space fragmented or monolithic? I remember when I left in 2011, it got pretty boring because Goons and Pandemic more or less controlled almost everything.

Why don't you join some null-sec alliance, deep in wtf space, build up to fly a hulk or something similar, mine some good stuff... learn the basics then move on to PvP.

Get social right away. Don't just poke around menus, spin your ship and not know what to do... ask in help, they are helpful.

I'd also warn you, this might end up the kind of time vampire you can't escape. Maybe build a business instead in real life?
>>
>>871490
Thats how EVE gets you. But this time don't binge it and just ease into it. Also don't join a small corp. Its not good to be the small guy in this game unless you have skill.
>>

Pretty much the large nul blocs have asserted complete control over nulsec and we're experiencing a big blue donut worse than pre-space aids, because WWB2 proved that trying to fight someone over space, even with overwhelming force is pointless since the only thing you get is months of structure grinding with the only reward being their gay cores
>>
>>870434
I noticed basically the same thing since I came back last month again, just doing different stuff as I please breaks up the monotomy. Might tryjoining a wh corp to shake things up since my npc corp is literally dead.

Also hilarious that russians still get shit on after all these years

Amarr wouldn't be so bad if their pulses didn't track so poorly, the beams optimal range wasn't comparatively low to railguns. Other close range only need one web, a standard amarr laser boat needs two webs to track well.

Amarr is full of sweaty nerds that rage on mic if you dont have 400IQ minmax manual ship piloting skill
Galmil is full of salty Americans that are still butthurt that they lost the event 6 months ago (because they literally did nothing and wonder why they lost)
Minmil is chill stoners who just want fights

>I bet I would play for a few days and then just stop again.
my advice
dont do boring content (like highsec missions or mining)
join a corp
fly with spacemates
do PVP

faction warfare's in a really good place right now and where most of the fights are happening, you can make good isk while pvping in shitfit frigates and meet some bros

Wow... this is the same scenario that pushed all my former CEOs, who used to be big alliance superstar FCs to leave cap alliances. This was pre 2010. Cap game in EvE is a flawed design, looks boring af too.

^ I really enjoyed reading this. You're so hopeless in ever challenging them you're hoping for government interference in a vidya.

But, I feel you. You're talking about me, we didn't harass new players, but seasoned carebears and anyone in nullsec worth shooting. Alliance I was in was created by former Red star FCs who just wanted to play eve at highest possible level of PvP. We thought of Red Alliance as mostly food too, mediocre PvPers with bad discipline. But everyone was Russian, Belorussian, Israeli etc... I tried at some point to create an American wing - but both executive FCs said its a potential 5th column, and I was shut down. I still don't agree. There were only 2 Russians from USA playing. I think they all moved to LoL after 2011, as there was nothing else to achieve in EvE, it got boring.

I've never experienced that level of high play and viciousness in any other game I've played since. Wish I could tell you who the alliance is, but I already said we botted the shit out of the game to give us PvP funds, so its not possible. Some of the guys are still playing in other alliances.

You have to understand that all Russian (and I suspect all slavic) groups in EvE are operating like soccer clubs. We fight each other, constantly one-upping and engaging in gang activities against one another. Sometimes gentle soft westerners get on the menu. Learn from it, it will make this game a lot deeper, which it is.

Oh the times....
I remember flying a shield vigilant (or as we called it: Lance Armstrong, get it? Look at the hull lol). No one expects a shield vigi. Fast, nimble, vicious little fly swatter. You go in alone and tackle a small gang of frigates, they have no fucking idea what they are getting themselves into... they feel they have an upper hand on you... by the time half of them are gone to 1-2 salvos each, you might get lucky and grab one more as they flee.
