Hey all,

 

I was thinking - instead of typing the same stuff over and over again in private convo's (which I don't mind btw, just thinking of ways to boost efficiency a little bit) - of going over a few basics in form of a class/session/whatever you want to call it. Nothing fancy really. It could look something like this: we'd fleet up, join comms, I'd go over a few basic things I've found helpful over time and we'd conclude with an open end filled with questions. And if time permits and people want to we could even take out some ships and try stuff in space.

 

I'm not really an expert on everything, so for specific stuff (thinking fleet engagements for instance), I might have to redirect you to more knowledgable pilots!

 

Anyway, gauging interest here to see if this is something worth putting effort into. Times in the poll are the ones I'm not asleep or playing LEGO with my kids. If they don't suit you, try adding something else. I bet there would be people in other time zones willing to do a session as well :)

 

EDIT: if there are people wanting to help with the "lecturing" part (for instance in different TZ's), be sure to mention that in a reply as well or drop me a PM.

I would really appreciate some advice on solo engagements. I love the small gang stuff but am keen to branch out into solo and have some really dumb questions about stuff like manual piloting, when to use an ab instead of a mwd and when to change ammo in a fight.

 

A class with some q & a would be awesome.  +1

I want to learn how you get the rng rolls to track my overheating ab slasher in your slicer... Even I was getting glancing blows, with 125s...

Hi,

I would also be very interested to learn, mainly on the solo engagements (like how to catch those pesky kiting Crows ;) etc.) but also something on the fleet engagements.

Did not capture this in my voting, but prior DT  and right after would be feasible during weekend. On week days, one logs when RL allows :-)

Are you looking for a serious discussion on that one or just trolling my thread?  ^_^

For me, it's vice versa: weekends mostly mean semi-afk playing EVE at best :P If interest is high enough and a weekend turns out to be the best solution, I'll talk with my personal manager though and organise something :)

My only real issue is remembering what types of ships to go after when I solo and how to use my ships strengths to my advantage.

It’s always better to have people think you’re crazy rather than stupid ’cause stupid sucks. Nobody’s nice to stupid people. Nobody even feels bad for them. If you’re stupid, people just go, ‘What are you — stupid? You stupid sh*t.’

I would love to get some basics in fleet...since I die a lot and quiet early in the engagement..either having the wrong ship, or doing the wrong thing, or a combination of both...We chatted earlier and your recommendation was to get a tanky ship...but may be there are some basic do's and don't do's which I am not aware of.

Tanky ship (punisher or merlin), and as soon as you start seeing yellow boxes... high-tail it out of the blob!

Alright, this is on rather short notice, but I've found the opportunity to organise one of these this weekend:

 

WHEN

Starting on Saturday, 14th of December 13:00 EVE time - CANCELLED, see below.

 

WHERE

I'll be in Poinen but it actually doesn't really matter where in New Eden you are, unless you want the possibility to try out something in space afterwards.

 

HOW

I'll create a fleet with an advert called "NoobFleet Basics" or something (you can find it in the Fleet Finder, which in turn is located under Neocom > Social > Fleet Finder - *clicky* for a tutorial on how to join a fleet).

You can join/leave the fleet at any time, make sure you join eve voice though (at least on the listening part, so I don't have to type answers to questions).

 

SCHEDULE

my idea was to summarize a few topics, but rather soon move on to an "open Q&A session". I'd just like to cover those few important topics, which imo are necessary to make your life in RvB most enjoyable. I'm thinking overview settings and bookmarks mainly here.

 

THE END

the end is an open one really. I've got stand-by duty for work starting at 16:00 EVE time, so worst case, that's about the time I could be forced to bail. Other than that, if everything's said after 30 minutes, the fleet will be disbanded after 30 minutes. If we keep discussing things for hours and hours, I'll keep going until you hear a *thud* ... which will be the point at which I fell from my chair because of hypoglycaemia or something :)

Jolly good, jolly good!!

But guess who's home system is camped by mother-in-law during the weekend and schedule has been otherwise overruled by high-priority Christmas CTA   :)

I hope you'll have active participation and a good session.

The opportunity arose on short notice, and gets destroyed again on even shorter notice :wacko:  my 2,5 year old has got a fever, so the family is staying at home after all. Which means I have to cancel this again. Sorry  :(
