When starting out, any reason why we shouldnt be able to pick a pirate faction?

might be due to the fact you start in the space of your chosen faction. 1 day noobs starting out in 0.0....pretty effective way to see people quit in less than 1 hour. New players have issues learning the eve way of pve...crash course in pvp would be real fun. be fun in the noob chat channel:

Umm, I just jumped a gate and landed in this big blue sphere and something called a rapier is targetting me. What do I do do...

You die, :( lol

Also the fact that pirate ships don't have much in the way of ship selections (you know the low level frigs your get like reapers if you start minny. You gonna have day 1 players in drams and DD's? Like that wouldn't be abused by players biomassing alts daily lol.

ahh, yea, great point about the selection of ships...

WRT starting out in 0.0... in some instances that would be desireable, if its your alt, and you want to grind standings with a pirate faction, starting out in 0.0 can be an advantage, but yes, it would cause issues for the complete noob who doesnt have a corp to go stright into...
