Is anyone ever not scared in null-sec?

It's a paranoids nightmare.

I am scared sh*tless every time I have to enter highsec or lowsec in anything that's not a cloaky or a shuttle. Especially highsec. All the reds around, itchy trigger finger, even if my brain knows they won't shoot at me, my insticts tell me GTFOT.

I try to stay in safe space where I always know who's a friend and who's not, I have intel channels telling me what's going on around me and an infrastructure of Jump Bridges giving me multiple paths from A to B in case one is hostile. I leave our space only when absolutely necessary.

CONCORD provides punishment.
Only other people can provide protection.

Addendum: No, two months into the game is not too soon to be in 0.0. The thing that matters is not your amount of skillpoints. It's your attitude, the people around you, and your will to be a part of something bigger.

It's not paranoia, they really are out to get you...

Paranoia is a very reassuring state of mind.

If you think they're out to get you, it means you think you matter.

I'm just about as new as you, so I'll share some of my thoughts here as a fellow newbie.

The advice to get into a good corp is excellent. I started playing this game with a few guys from work that've been playing for awhile to find that they were hanging out in hi-sec and running missions. Based on what I had read about Eve, that life didn't appeal to me, so as the new guy I started looking around for a corp to join. Luckily I stumbled on a corp that filled a niche(covert ops) in the game that I found entertaining and learned that they are willing to take in fresh blood. Being in the corp has improved my time in game by leaps and bounds and I'm learning more every day.

Get yourself into a cheap, tanky ship(I'm using a drake) and fit it out with t1 mods and take advantage of the opportunities that your corp presents you with. The lessons are plentiful out in 0.0 and you'll have a good time, even when you do stupid stuff that gets you killed.

Simple belt ratting in a corp controled system will be more than enough to keep you in cheap bc's and let you steadily build up your bankroll.

I'll also echo the sentiment of making yourself good in waht you're able to fly rather than striving to get to just the base skill reqs of a bigger ship type. I'm focusing on filling out my bc and cov ops frigate skills before even thinking of going for something bigger. The biggest problem that I had as a newbie(which I still very much am) was finding focus. Primarilly focusing on the ship type needed to fit into my corp's fleet comp strat and also on becoming the best I can in the ship in my non-op time has helped that. Those support skills that make you better in one ship will also help you in similar fit ships of a larger size when you're ready to progress to them.

It takes balls of Megacyte to go against the killers out there. You'll be terrorizing others in no time.

Thank you so much, I have wanted to create a corporation for a while but haven't been able to name it properly.. until now. Much love <3

Thanks for the replies everyone. I've gotten a small fund back for some basic frigs and decided to hold off on the bigger badder ships now and just stick with the cheap stuff. Loads of fun, still useful and economic. I will not however give up on staying in null with my corp, too much excitement out there :P

Also just to state the only reason I have been caring about killmail k/d is to gauge my progression. I joined a group of people I like and don't want to fall behind and be the weak link is all. In fact even though im usually the hunted not the hunter as of late (soloing, low skill and sp) and getting killed/podded is extremely frustrating, I can't help but coming back for the future revenge >:)

Its also good to know I'm not the only one who fears 0.0 :P
