How can I find out who killed me? I was one-shotted after jumping through a gate. I was pretty beat up after a mission and should have taken a few minutes to repair and recharge before jumping in lowsec.

Also, I think he was able to lock and kill me all in the time that I started to warp. How is that possible?

Thanks,
Inurmail

Open your Character Sheet from sidebar, then click the Combat Log in the menu on the left, and go to the Losses tab. A record of all ships you've lost (except those which you selfdestructed) is shown here, and you can double-click on one for details of the kill.

Time it takes for someone to lock you up can be under 0.7 seconds. With sufficient number of people you can be dead within a second.
Even if it took longer you might have experienced lag and it seems instant.

Time it takes for something that doesn't need lock (like the thing that probably killed you - smartbombs) is instant. :)

Welcome to EVE and being one shotted is a commonplace for new players until you have 3 years of Time Points on your character.......good luck waiting :)

So how does this game attract new players and manage to keep them? Masochism at work?

^^ This, not everyone gives up on things because they can't do something the first/second/third time they try it.
Unfortunately myself I usually learn things from being an idiot, e.g really don't fly a pimped Tengu when ****ed (twice) s h i t shappens and you just learn not to drink so much Leffe next time Laughing

Wrong. HP for a 1month player to a 3year player is only about 20% if that...

Anyways you know how to check the kill mail now. And some ships are set up to lock fast and have a high alpha damage.

For example a sabre/thrasher can fit a lot of artilaries that do a lot of dmg per shot but do not shoot very often. This large hit is called alpha. Artilaries have high alpha but low DPS.

The sabre/thrasher fits 8 artialry specifically designed to kill frigates, a sensor booster to target you fast, and damage mods in the lows.

A well fit thrasher/saber can one or two shot most untanked t1 frigates.

You can stop this by fitting a bigger tank, or aligning faster with skills and nano fiber's in thelows. Lots of options.

PS
the thrasher/saber doing this is very squishy.

To the OP:

It is possible to boost your scan resolution high enough to target another ship in less than half of a second by flying an interceptor and/or using sensor boosters. Because low sec gates can't have 'bubbles' on them (Prevents warping within a sphere), gate campers rely on being able to target people as fast as possible to get targets.

Since you don't know the proper name for skill points, I doubt you know much about when one-shotting drops off.

It doesn't. If you are flying a ship that can be suicide ganked, then you might be suicide ganked. I've been in on a freighter gank. We sacrificed 20 battleships to insta-pop a freighter. Why would we do that?

So many delicious faction towers within (we got them all, too!).

I don't know the details of your gank OP, but it happens. Mark it down as a lesson learned, and you'll gain some respect from everyone. Throw in the towel and leave, and you'll never know how much you threw away.
