Depends on what sort of PvP. Be a little more specific please.

You can PvP pretty much in any ship except for maybe industrial Very Happy
Tristan is not the best choice, but you can use it in a fleet as support ship.

Basic setup:
low: 2 x capacitor power relay, 1 x nanofiber internal structure 1
mid: 1 x MWD (a must), 1x Webfier or Warp Disruptor (both if you have enough cpu/power)
high: whatever

Well, there's the problem- I'm not sure which particular role the Tristan fits- it's a little slow to be a good anti-frigate ship, doesn't really deal enough damage out over time to trouble a BS, which leaves it as an anti-cruiser frig- unless anyone has a better idea. Tristan *seems* to be a very flexible frigate, but with the penalty of not being outstanding at any one thing.
Cheers Xinth- was trying to make my mind up between reactor controls & cap relays...

Iv used a tristan on several occasions in pvp, the role i filled was warp scrambling in a fleet/gate camping session. I held 2 apoc's while they got bashed by a bunch of other bs's.

I used: 2x Small nosferu's (even tho they dont work :E) 1x standard launcher (defenders) 1x mwd 1x warp scrambler 1x warp disruptor.

I only took damage once, and that was from a friendly cruise missile after the ships were dead :(

You CAN PvP in an indy

I've never tried to PvP in a tristan but the abouve setup would work well. For 1v1 just fit a smartbomb and maybe even armor plates if it doesnt slow you down too much. I'd fit small blasters, as good as you can find for the highs. The smartbomb is always a good idea, micros don't work but small is fine then you can fight any frig, crow included. You'll need alot of cap to run mwd, guns, web and warp srambler so cap relays are your friend.

Any frigate with 3 mid slots makes a good support ship for the bigger guys, imo. I like the vigil and the tristan both because of that.

Rifters make better anti-frigate dogfighters, but that lack of a third mid really sucks.

Tristan is a very good PvP ship....in fleet engaments frigates are essential for tackelin i.e scrambling and webing the tristan has 3 med slots making it one of the best frigates in the game for this role. It lacks fire power comapred to the rifter/breacher/merlin etc however it is better setup for a support role then the heavyier hitters.

I swear by the Tristan i refuse to use any other frigate unless its an interceptor in PvP as there tackling ability is pricless in PvP.

Also although the Tristan is alittle slow 3 overdirves in the low slot can sought the problem out no problems. Also the Tristan is more durable then a rifter. A rifter can only handel 1 cruise missle the second will kill it the Tristan can hadel 2....it takes 3 to kill it. So Rifters have ther role as heavy hitters where Tristan's are support ships but they also have 1 launcher slot and 100 drone space alowing them to dish out a moderate level of damge compared to the other ships.
