Gonna do another this weekend:
Sunday June 23rd 1:00 am EvE Time
The newbies just keep coming! PEW PEW!
I'm going to start doing a regular class exclusively for Noobfleet members, designed to give our newest pilots a chance to practice fleet basics in a no pressure situation. This should get them comfortable with pvp fleets, so they are a bit less confused and more helpful when they head out with real RvB fleets.
I'm by no means an expert myself, but I've been playing EvE for many years and have quite a bit of experience flying in pvp fleets. I figured this would help get some of our really new players heading in the right direction.
We'll spend most of our time discussing a variety of topics relevant to flying with RvB fleets -- we WILL NOT be looking for kills (we will be a purple fleet). Our goal is to make new pilots more effective fleet members by covering the really basic stuff. The majority of our time will be focused on the following, some more than others (depending on the questions people have):
- The Overview
- The Fleet Window
- Fleet structure
- Leadership Skills
- Fleet Comms
- Fleet Movement
Gate Tactics Safespots and Tacticals Fast Tackling
We'll spend most of our time talking and flying around, but if we have enough people and we are fairly balanced between red and blue, we might split up for a quick little fight at the end.
Who: All Noobfleet members are welcome - Red or Blue! No signing up required - just show up!
Where: We'll meet in Poinen. (If there are big nasty fleets out and about, we will pick people up at their respecitve HQs, and have a quick lesson on insta-undocks)
Thursday Aug 23rd, 22:00 EvEtime. Sunday Aug 26th, 15:00 EvEtime.
Duration: 1-2 hours
Before you come out:
- Make sure you are in a t1 frigate
- Download and install the RvB overview presets, and play with it a bit. We'll be discussing the overview, so you should already have it installed and have some idea how things work.
- Make sure you have EvE voice set up, and test your mic BEFORE joining.
