Anyone else ever take a look at the "Eve Online Revelations" Pictures on the home page? Ever see the one with an Apoc shooting 8 lasers at what appears to be a frigate... Can you imagine how misleading that could be to a newer player?

If everyone knows the "lets see how many things wrong with this picture" game, I'll begin.

1. Wheres the nos?

2. There's only one ship on each side.

Might as well show an Avatar firing on a frigate with weapons if they're going for looks.

4. The apoc is near a moon, and thus not in a deadspace mission.

You need to lock to use nos. A small pack of frigates can make it pretty much impossible for a battleship to do anything but release its drones and hope they will attack on their own.

Of course, if it's firing it is already locked though.

The picture of the moas. Seeing a single Moa is already rare enough, now to see a pack flying in formation?

I'd love some more realistic pictures to really let people know what pvp is like in eve. Bring on the 20 man gate camps firing on a single target in a bubble. Or how about a picture of a titan bumping ships out of a POS force field (all the pictures are pre rev II anyway).

That apoc is not shooting the frigate, those are really Miner II's attempting to reprocess the ship in space. That is the most logical explanation, because we all know an Apoc will not be hitting a frigate that close with those guns, unless he gets a lucky shot after about 10 minutes :) .

On Pratiken's note..

6. Frigate is supposed to be a roid and mining lasers are mis-colored red.

Yea or show pictures of attempting to scan someones wrecks or drones while they are in a deadspace mission only to have them warp and cloak or WTZ and dock

7. The apoc is not cloaked waiting for the frigate tackler to pass by so he can rat/mission some more
