Morning RvB,

 

I just joined Blue Federation. I have been playing Eve off and on since 2008. Most of my time has been in PVE and station trading. I have joined a few roams in my career in null and in w-space. I always felt lost. I was advised to look into RvB to learn to pvp and decided to join. 

 

I am looking to learn, make mistakes, get some kills and overall have fun. I live in NY. Because of my 3 year old fighting sleep I play 0200 - 0600 Eve Time during the weekdays (unless I fall alseep while putting the lil guy to sleep). I get more playtime of course on the weekends. 

 

Looking forward to the Fights.

 

Kal

Welcome Kalel,

 

I'm new here myself and already loving it, I think you will too. As someone who also has limited time to commit depending on RL I'm really enjoying the RvB 'style', which lends it'self great to getting stuck in right away no matter how much time you have (or don't as the case may be).

 

See you in space o7

This my recommendation for completely new players in chronological order:

 

1. Stay in fleets to learn basic PvP mechanics, listen to FC.

2. Once satisfied with no.1 try some arranged 1v1s to learn specific pvp skills (tanking/range control/tracking manipulation/module management)

3. Once satisfied with no.2 try some solo/small gang roaming to learn tactics/strategies (on-grid separation, gate aggro separation, tanking multiple ships etc etc)

 

As always feel free ask for advice/questions in community chat.

A better pilot, you will become, when overcome, the fear of ship losing - Eve Yoda

Also,

Do, or do not. There is no try. - Real Yoda

Undocking and suddenly dying and then trying to figure out wtf just happened will also help. If someone doe manage to kill you, ask them what happened. More often than not, more experienced pilots will impart some knowledge about that encounter. Don't be afraid to take a fight. It's only a videogame.

Star Wars fan here so I understand Eve Yoda. Currently reading Heir to the Jedi by Kevin Hearne.
