  1. READ THIS SHIT NEWBROS:
  2. _______________________________________________________________________________
  3.  
  4. First off, ask for a trial invite in the thread and include an email address.
  5.  
  6. You get a 30 day trial whether or not you use an invite - but if you use an
  7. invite and subscribe, your inviter gets a PLEX, which he can sell and split
  8. with you (significant cash for a newbro).
  9.  
  10. But remember! There is no way to track down who invited you unless he tells
  11. you in the invite email - so don't accept an invite unless the email includes
  12. a contact name!
  13. _______________________________________________________________________________
  14.  
  15. Join the in-game chat channel "/v/ bros". There is no official /v/vg/ corp,
  16. though there are a few corps/alliances with a decent number of /v/vg/ players.
  17. _______________________________________________________________________________
  18.  
  19. >Can I make enough ISK to PLEX during the trial?
  20.  
  21. If you have to ask, you can't do it.
  22. _______________________________________________________________________________
  23.  
  24. >I just started, what should I do?
  25.  
  26. Mess with the Opportunities, then find the Career Agents and run ALL of their
  27. missions (yes, run the mining missions even if you're planning to pvp, the
  28. industry missions even if you're planning to explore, etc); they give you ISK,
  29. ships, skillbooks and teach you the basics.
  30. _______________________________________________________________________________
  31.  
  32. >Is it too late to get into EVE?
  33.  
  34. No.
  35. _______________________________________________________________________________
  36.  
  37. >You have to have high SP to play EVE, so it's too late.
  38.  
  39. This is incorrect on many levels.
  40.  
  41. 1) Anyone can be useful with even under 1M SP, and there is nothing stopping
  42. you from doing some cheap T1 frig solo pvp, which some argue is some of the
  43. most fun to be had in the game. A tackler and scout is a necessary addition to
  44. any small, medium or large sized gang, and you can scout in a rookie ship.
  45. Specializing 1M SP in the right place can beat 100M SP in the wrong place. Not
  46. to mention that new players can get into very useful (and arguably
  47. overpowered) ewar and logistics frigates/cruisers very fast.
  48.  
  49. 2) SP does NOT equate skill. Skill comes through experience, not having
  50. overpowered ships, characters and implants. Someone with 100M+ SP, a high
  51. grade slave set and a full officer fit can be killed by a new player under the
  52. right circumstances. And easily by a group of new players. 3) If you are so
  53. concerned about SP, you can simply buy a high SP character on the bazaar. P2W?
  54. Just make enough isk to afford it.
  55. _______________________________________________________________________________
  56.  
  57. >What is a PLEX?
  58.  
  59. PLEX is short for 30 Day Concord Pilot License Extension. It's an in-game item
  60. that can be used to pay for your subscription without using more traditional
  61. payment methods.
  62.  
  63. EVE players can pay for their account with in-game money, ISK, by buying
  64. PLEXes off the market. When you sign up for a trial via an invite link, the
  65. person who invited you can get transferred a PLEX if you upgrade to a paying
  66. subscription, and he can then sell it and transfer funds to you, which can be
  67. a great asset for a new player.
  68. _______________________________________________________________________________
  69.  
  70. >A primer as to why /eog/ does not need tripcodes, -fags and -friends
  71.  
  72. In EVE online, the meta of who you are, your corp, what alliance you belong
  73. to, your history, and what you personally have done is important. Therefore,
  74. each post will never be judged on its weight alone, but on who posted it. Each
  75. post will have needless amounts of meta which will throw off actual game
  76. discussion. Say a hisec carebear has an opinion? Yell at him for mining.
  77. Someone in nullsec? Make fun of him for being a nullbabby. Someone in X shitty
  78. alliance? Make fun of them and disregard their post.
  79.  
  80. In addition to the fact that in earlier threads (like last year) 90% of the
  81. posts would be only 3-4 people, it would magnify the shitposting to a grand
  82. degree. People would simply post to rile people up (hello mr. unclaimed) and
  83. to ignite shitposting (we already have enough of this with race).
  84.  
  85. So it goes beyond the whole '4chan hates trips' thing. It doesn't matter
  86. whether in this particular thread *you* make some 'quality' posts. We've
  87. consistently yelled at trips until they stop, because without this we descend
  88. to become the tripfag circlejerk that plagues /vg/ (though apparently
  89. moderation is kicking up, I don't know since this is the only /vg/ thread I
  90. visit on a regular basis)
  91.  
  92. So, in short, that's why. If you want to post with your name, there is kugu,
  93. FHC, hell the fucking news sites and god forbid eve-o
  94. _______________________________________________________________________________

  96. Starter PvP guide:
  97.  
  98. There's close-range play (for frigates, some 1km-14km); and there's keeping
  99. range (with the option for disengage and for mitigating damage through
  100. proximity and powerful modules).
  101.  
  102. It's probably best starting out with videos of one of the most interesting
  103. playstyles, manual piloting. Here's a video discussing real flight techniques
  104. and their relevance in-game.

  112. https://youtu.be/WGYxkSz7HFI
  113.  
  114. (After the basics from the first video, it's helpful watching the mouse on the
  115. range-rulers for an idea of the angle that its producing. Spoiler: it's
  116. double-clicking in space, like a 3D ARPG.)

  125.  
  126. This is a video on one of those "powerful modules" which can even out the
  127. learning experience, just like figuring how to approach (increasing
  128. transversal, how "click-approach" ships act, where to click the orbit button),
  129. and knowing which ships it effects most.

  134. ----
  135.  
  136. Here are some trial-account PvP videos. They are mostly nullsec play, where
  137. many of the frigates are Interceptors - less tanky / gimmicky / blingy fit
  138. than frigates from faction-warfare space.

  148. Lastly, this video shows the flow of manual flight and discusses how the
  149. light-tackle role is one of the most over-suggested playstyles.

  156. >What do I train / fly?
  157.  
  158. Here's a fit & skillqueue to complete through faction warfare small complexes:
  159.  
  160. Fitting: 5MN Stab/Scram Blaster Catalyst ~ 2mil
  161. (The red is for no rig training, which is allowed.)

  166. (This is a bit obsolete since Fall '15 because of increased starter SP.)

  172.  
  173. >Where do I find fights?
  174.  
  175. If you are looking for PvP, you will find people most places in lowsec, but
  176. faction warfare space (use dotlan / the faction warfare windows in-client)
  177. will have more people and more places for you to hide.
  178.  
  179. If you are wanting to make money, a defensive plex (in your own faction's
  180. space) is at best (99.9% contest) 3/4 the value of the equivalently sized
  181. offensive plex and at worst (0% contest) has no payout at all. Offensive
  182. plexes have a flat payout based on size; contest level doesn't matter.
