    Goons are bad mmmkay

    When we drop on goons with bombers bar. we normally have around 10 titans drop with smart bombs haha.
  3. A short clip from a Roam I went on with some alliance mates into Delve - home of the Goonswarm Federation. We popped one Rorqual, went for another and got surprised, most of us got away only to get double surprised at the end :D https://zkillboard.com/kill/67112670/
  4. All it takes for some pvp is a few people in cheap destroyer ships - a ship you get at the very start. In my above terrible PVP video I'm in a Projectile-based destroyer called a 'Thrasher'. It's fitted with 7x 200mm AutoCannons - short ranged rapid fire guns. Like space mini-guns. This ship only cost a few million isk (very little) but with it, and some friends in the same ships, we destroyed 2x Vexor Navy Issue cruiser class ships - bigger and badder than ours. Each worth in the region of 100 million+. Bigger isn't always better, and in this case if you die, your ship cost all of like 3 million. Aint no thang. Some destroyers and battle crusiers and you too can ruin someones day by destroying their Half-a-Billion Tactical Cruiser(Advanced Tech 3 ship) in only 30 seconds!
  5. Be able to afford a loss Never fly something (or with something in the cargo) you can't afford to lose. Yes, not even in highsec. Meaning that you should not fly a ship you cannot afford to replace and refit. Consent to PvP You consent to PvP when you click "undock". You are not safe in 1.0 security space. CONCORD22 is there to punish, not to protect. Get used to the idea. In most cases, the only way to be 100% safe from aggression inside the game is to be docked in a station. Being cloaked in a secret safespot could work too. Everyone can scam - and so can you Never grant corporation rights to stuff you can't afford to lose either. No exceptions. People offering free stuff? Probably traps. Be cautious. Free stuff usually isn't. Not even minerals you mine yourself. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Paranoia pays off here. Double-check everything. Scamming and unethical behavior some would consider griefing is not only allowed, it is encouraged and rewarded by the game mechanics. Harassment or real-life threats are not ok, and you can get a shiny ban for them. Learn the difference. Experience matters, not ISK or Skills Just because some character is just a few minutes old doesn't mean he's a newbie. Many people have alts. The reverse is also possible, people come back after very long breaks, and characters are sold. You could see year-old newbies around too. Skills that take less than 1 day to train are short skills. Over one week is long. You're in this game for the long haul. Don't expect to do something meaningful in the grand scheme of things in the first day of your first trial account ever. All other things being equal (experience, skills), superior numbers more often win a fight rather than superior ship value. However, things are hardly ever equal. Total skillpoints count doesn't matter much either, it's level of relevant skills to the current situation that does. Yes, that does mean a 2 mil SP combat-oriented newbie could badly beat up a 60 mil SP industry-oriented veteran. Bigger is not always better More expensive stuff is not always better stuff. Slightly better stuff usually costs many times more than slightly worse stuff. Choose wisely. Tech-2 is usually cheaper and better, but harder to fit. Sometimes it's not better. Other times it's not cheaper. And occasionally, neither cheaper nor better. There are no "solopwnmobiles" in EVE. Everything you can fly blows up if it's shot hard enough. With enough skills and experience, ship size really doesn't matter all that much. Use the in-game info Show Info and Variants->Compare are your best friends. Use it on all stuff you can. Always check your ship insurance before you undock. If it's a T2 ship however... not that important. Unfair circumstances? There is no such thing as "a fair fight" or "an unfair fight". There's only a fight. Circumstances are irrelevant. Just because you can fly something doesn't mean you should. You will lose stuff, don't worry! If you PvP long enough, you will lose your ship. It's only a matter of where and when. If you logoff in space without a PvP timer8, you're only safe after 1 minutes... and then only until you log back in. If you logoff with a PvP timer, it's at least 15 minutes. Bottom line, once a fight started, don't logoff. You'll only die anyway. Somebody, somewhere has better skills than you, more experience than you, is smarter than you, has more friends than you and can stay online longer than you. Just pray he's not out to get you. If you lose stuff, it's almost alwaysyour fault. Really, only yours.
