Gonna do another this weekend:

Sunday June 23rd 1:00 am EvE Time

 

2010.04.02.19.16.30.jpg

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
  • Broadcasts
  • Watchlist
  • 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)

When: 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.

If it helps, the Rifters I put up on corporate contracts are a good place to start for "beginner tackle" fits.

Ah good idea - maybe the first step of the class will be, "here's how to buy pre-fitted ships on contract... " :D

Actually, the tackler Rifter is cheaper in the contracts then if you fit yourself with part bought in Jita.

What can I say, self promoter gonna self promote.

I have to agree with the others, anyone who has little or no real experience with working in a functional fleet will most likely learn a lot. I've been in EVE for a few years, but with no practical pvp or fleet experience. I've been able to suss out a lot on my own, but I there were a lot of questions I didn't know I had and got them answered during that little jaunt.

For example, I've made safes before, but I'd never heard of a "rolling safe". Once it was demonstrated, I understood the idea of it right off and can understand the purpose to why you'd want to do it. Another would be that I understood the basics of the fleet hierarchy, but I had no clue to the effect, or lack thereof, of fleet boosting on a squad with an under-trained squad leader.

I definitely recommend this to anyone that needs it, and most definitely anyone that qualifies for noobfleet would.
