I want this class!

If I keep playing after my 14 day trial (highly likely) I will find a way to get the 5 mil.

I made a ton in just the first 2 days of trial (got that lucky 1.6mil mission reward item and saved the rest).

I want/need to be pvp ready. The feedback on this course, and the look I took at their website tells me it will be worth it.

That is most generous of you! I can only play a bit on weekends (Husband and Father ya know...) so it may be a bit, if I can't come up with it when I am ready I will Evemail you with the understanding that once I have a more sufficient cash flow you will be repaid.

Hi guys,
What time does the class start? I work weekends, and am in a weird time zone ;)
Thanks!

I think you guys are doing great for those wanting to learn PvP. Some people bag on you saying "take your guys to my <insert whatever slang name for a bathroom here>, I'll show them a real threat.". I say sure, there's always a bigger fish, and there's always "bad days". But, the fact or possibility the MC could organize an engagement and take out a class of PvP newbies doesn't belittle the benefit and intent of your goals. Such complaints would be like saying Drivers Ed is a waste of time becuase after they finish they still can't qualify in NASCAR.

Also, your movie is very well put together... inspirational even. Very good marketing if you ask me.

You guys keep this up. Personally, I think 5 mil is a bit scant, but I haven't taken your course so I can only speculate the value. But, it certainly seems your intent and aim are comendable. Should any noobs in 1.0 ask me about PvP, I'll direct them to you guys.

They normally start at 18:00 Eve, but we have instructors on both European and US timezones now, so we're a little more flexible. Check out our website for specific dates and times.

I'm really interested in this course. I'm having trouble registering at your forums though; the error message 'You are not authorized to carry out this operation' appears when I try to create a new account.

Edit: Figured it out and now I'm registered.

Also, do you only run this courses on Saturdays/Sundays? I have obligations most weekends that would be hard to get away from. Thanks.

As someone who's mostly been on the industrial side of EVE since he started who is now getting excited about PvPing I took this class and I can highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get into PVPing.

I wasn't a complete noob in PVP but haven't had much luck winning, especially without any organization involved. After taking this class and seeing a few T1 Frigates take out battleships and T2 ships with absolute minimum losses to the class it's inspiring.

In fact, I'm so pleased with the class I'm going to sponsor a needy character. If there is a player that really wants to take the class and doesn't have the cash to burn send me an EVE Mail. I'd prefer newer characters cause most the ones who've been around a while should have some money :) The first one in my inbox will get a sponsorship from me direct to Agony (No, I'm not going to just send you 5 million ISK and then you not take the class).

It's been a little over a month since I joined Agony and nearly two months since I took PVP Basic, so I thought I would just provide a small update of my "impressions" concerning the course; you can see my original post on the first page of this thread.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Since I joined, I've since taken the PVP Wolfpacks course which focuses on more advanced concepts as well as the use of destroyers. But the bottom-line is, I'm still learning new things with every pack I run with. Admittedly I'm not comfortable leading a pack, the terrain is still a bit fuzzy, the knowledge of ship capabilities is a real drawback, but still learning ;-)

I'm MUCH more comfortable scooting about 0.0 systems, I know how to avoid gatecamps, warp bubbles on the gate, I can make insta's, mid-safes and tacticals on the fly. Frankly, passing through Jita makes me more nervous than sitting on the gate in VV-VCR waiting for "goonies".

My defensive and offensive skills are much more formidable than they where just a few short weeks ago, flying Assault frigs and just started working on Interceptors. I was bullied into training Minmatar frigs by my assigned mentor, and now, while I still love my Kessies, the rifter is becoming a fast favorite. I think the most important thing I've learned about fitting is don't be afraid to try something inconventional.. occassionally it kicks ass.

Whats the point of all of this .. well, it boils down to this, the PVP Basic class is just that, BASIC, an introduction .. a crossroad on your path and decisions to be made. Your not going to learn to be an uber PVP pilot in 5-8 hours, and you should expect nothing more.

What is great is that Agony encourages all students to continue to fly with their wolfpacks and future classes on a space available basis after the fact and without asking for any extra ISK. But it IS addictive!! I will guarantee you this, you will learn MORE flying in a wolfpack after the class than you will during the class!

As a footnote, I finally got my first ever solo kill, it wasn't anything spectacular, but it is another crossroad, I find that I'm better able; almost two months later, to make a tactical decision and act on it. I might also add that I've also been killed for the first time while attempting a solo kill, my lil' Rocket Kessie vs. a cruiser .. had him well into structure before I went poof .. lesson learned .. Kessis is a slow-assed boat .. do not try to tack 24km into a target solo ;-)

P.S. I guess I'm Agony's ultimate carebear, or so I've been accused, my primary "occupation" before taking PVP Basic was miner, researcher, manufacturer. And my combat skills where definately backburner priority so much so, I still have more skill points in industry and science than I do in any other skill.

ok I would like to sign up for this but want to make sure I am converting the time correctly. Also I have been unalbe to post on the forums to sign up or to register for a forum account. Am I doing something wrong? 18:00 Eve time is 13:00 EST since EVE time is currently EST time +5 correct? So this starts at 1:00 eve time?

Also is it possible to get the 5mil back if I am unable to show up or get the skills trained in time (this should not be a problem I only have 2 or so level 1's I'm missing)? I have five mill and the potential to make more so I don't want to take anyones money but it would be all the money I have currently saved (which is fine it will be worth it I am sure)

Thanks!

I will be showing up as Maldon Pierra not the character I posted as sorry about that.

As a recent PVP-BASIC graduate, I'd also vouch for the effectiveness and fun of this class. I came into the class knowing little about PvP in EVE, and left with an aresenal of basic skills, knowledge, and some firsthand experience at putting that information to use.

The thing that stood out most for me about the course is how professional and organized the whole experience was. This isn't a bunch of players who decided to open up their TS server for anyone and everyone to jump into. It's planned, organized, and executed extremely well. Despite the length of the course (I played EVE for nearly 12 hours the day of the session), it never felt confused or disorganized.

I would recommend the course to anyone interested in playing EVE, regardless if you're an industrial character or a full-time PvPer. You might just learn something that you didn't know before, and will have a great time doing!

There are two links to make an account. The one on top is busted for reasons I have not been able to determine. Use the one on the right instead. As for the conversion from Eve time I dont know. Just look at the eve clock when you are logged on (lower left corner) and you will have your time differential.

If you have real life issues that prevent you from attending the class, just post on the thread before the class starts and we will credit you so that you can take the next class that you have time for. However, those that fail to show up without informing us beforehand lose their fee. This is only fair since that student would be taking the spot from someone else.

Training the skills should take less than a week.

ok I tried the one on the right as well and I got the same response. You are not authorized to perform this action. Got the page asking me if I was over 13 and clicked the box saying I was willing to abide by the procedures of the website. Still got you are not authorized to perform this action. Do I need to allow the site to put cookies on my computer? Tried it both in mozzilla and internet explorer. Thanks!

Cookies are required and dont use the back button in registering as there is a bug in postnuke with that.

If you tried the busted one on the left first, make sure that you create a new account with the link on the right using a different name. After filling out the information and hitting submit, you may be taken to a blank screen saying "You are not authorized to perform this action" Thats ok, don't pay any attention to it. It should have registered the account. Now go to the home page and try logging in on the right with the user name and password of the account you just created anyway. Should work.
