Yeah you get whatever standings increase they get from the mission if you fleet up I believe. The problem is that I'm too busy to make it a regular thing, and whenever I ask there are people that are either too far away (I'm too lazy to jump more than 6 or 7 jumps), or they're finishing up before they get off.

Missions bore me. I would rather do exploration in 0.0

Nothing like doing a 6/10 and getting a 300m isk module from the end boss. They can be pretty profitable, especially if you can solo them. Even if they drop crappy loot, you still get about 30-50m isk from bounties.

Of course the hardest missions I can run are L2s and I know they wont get any tougher or make more isk for me. I can fly a pretty mean Vargur though so I am prepared :p

My probing skills are pretty bad. All you have to do is probe out the sites and then warp to them right?

Yup that is correct. However finding them is the easy part. There are some sites that have like 20 BSes + support elite cruisers and frigates so you need a dedicated tank and a few people to rep the tank and kill the spawns off. Or if you have multiple accounts, you can solo them!

However there are plenty of sites which can be done with only one or two people and still give decent isk.

I love my arbitrator. Fit a full rack of Neuts + 2 tracking disrupters and wreak havoc in a small gang, or fit a point and destroy anything that uses cap. Its ****loads of fun to find another amarr cruiser solo, because after a few cycles of Neuts they are dead in the water, allowing me to slowly pick them apart with drones.

Curses are really annoying to anything that uses cap.

Also just because a neutral has been in the system for the last hour and you dont see anything on scan, doesn't mean that no one is there.

ive been thinking of buying an arbitrator for a while, mainly just for the way it looks lol. but i might get one to start getting into pvp a little with and have a reason to start learning some armor tanking skills.


i love our corp leaders e-mails:

"newbies and pvp"


"dont shoot anyone yet you ****s!"

I finally ganked this raven bot I have been trying to catch. I am pretty sure it was a bot because it would log out and wait 30 minutes before logging back in each time and would be ratting for hours!

I probed out one of his safespots but I actually caught him jumping through a gate. Falcon are EVE HAX!

What makes them so much better than a normal probing ship; the fact that they can cloak? To be honest, the only stealth ships that I think are even worth it are stealth bombers. And covert ops battleships cost too much money to be worth it.

Well falcons are great because they can keep any single ship permajammed for the entire fight. So unless they have drones, they cant hurt you! Also I ganked a third Ishtar... people are dumb

Yea the Rapier has insane tackling capability (especially with the faction point and webs, letting me set my base orbit at 26km out of heavy neut range) and the falcon perma jams them. I only deal like 300 dps but when they are only tanked for kinetic and thermal damage, they melt super quick!

And of course if I convince anyone to tag along, it really improves the killing capabilities!

I decided to go meet up with some friends quite a few jumps away from our outpost by myself. I get almost there and a cynabal points me, i head back to the gate but i point him back and engage him. It looks like im gonna win, when he has a friend in a falcon jump in and perma jam me, i mange to deagress and make it the 10 jumps back to our outpost without dying.

Edit - I was in a drake.
