Hi all,

I've been away for two years and decided to reactivate account. I used to be a low SP pirate and then moved to 0.0 alliance prior to leaving the game (i left after getting pod ganked and losing 5M SP :( ). Anyways, as things stand I have a fair bit of ISK (Billion or thereabouts) and a Caldari main that has about 8M SP distributed as follows:

- Drones (300k SP - Drones V basically)
- Electronics (600k SP - Electronics V | Sig Ana V)
- Engineering (1.5M SP - Energy Systems Op V | Engineering V | Shield Op V | and a few skills at IV)
- Gunnery (300k SP - nothing but SHT V)
- Mechanic (400k SP - Mechanic V)
- Missile Launcher Ops (1.8M SP - HM V | MB V | MLO V | and a few at IV)
- Nabigation (500k SP - Navigation V and a few at IV)
- Spaceship Command (3M SP - BC V | SC V | Caldari Cruiser IV | Caldari Frigate V | Caldari Battleship IV | and a few at IV)

Basically before I left my role used to be a **** stirrer in a Drake (Tech II shield tank setup with large shield rigs), the tank was good but i could not kill anything without help - which fit the purpose of the group.

So with the character that I have, my questions are:

1. What's the quickest path for me to build a ship setup that is fun in solo pvp?
2. What's the best setup for a drake for small gang pvp?
3. How do I go about finding a PVP orientated aussie corp (don't mind if it's 0.0 or pirating - have exp doing both)?
4. What should I train for long term - what's my training goal for a pvp setup - do i go minmatar and train guns or do i stick to caldari?

Thanks in advance for your responses - really confused about state of the game atm (galante were so OP when I last played and apparently now they are weak in pvp...).

3. Recruitment forum.

4. Caldari get the Drake and ECM. Not much else is really liked in PvP these days. The raven is a very good DPS dealer but its not an armor tank, so its not really popular. I'd suggest cross training to Amarr/Minmatar so you can get a larger variety of ships to fly in different situations.

Thanks kindly for your reply...I will apply and go out looking for some 1v1 tonight (and loose a few drakes while I learn no doubt :D).

I would also be interested in feedback regarding HAM vs HML - from what I've read overnight HAM is more dps... Would appreciate an opinion or two.

Also, what type of targets are fair game for a drake these days?
