Level 4 missions are supposed to be played in a small fleet. Try it, they take very little time, you earn more / hour, and have more fun. Eve is a MULTIplayer game. Rolling Eyes

I agree that level four missions take too long, but if you're really taking that long, you're doing something horribly wrong. You need to work on your skills and maybe your ship fittings.

If you expect to be able to jump in and race straight to high-end content within a week then, as someone else in this thread has said, GB2WoW.

Akita quite obviously works for CCP, I mean, how else is it possible to get a drake with good DPS? Razz

LOL I see now. But wouldn't Akita have to be working for EFT since it's EFT that's showing all that DPS? And whom do I work for if my Drake DPS is higher than Akita's?

You'd be working for CCCP Laughing

I created a 3 month old Raven pilot, who can do level 4's with a little bit of warping in out /afterburner use.

Wow, a tinfoil hat convention rolled into a single individual. I stand amazed.

People here will support CCP on some issues, while opposing their choices in other areas... this does not indicate any kind of covert affiliation.

tip:

ballistic controls

failing that:

stop using a drake, get a battleship.

failing that:

team up with someone who can do more than 200dps while you tank.


How you know I fly a drake?

That's a croc. If you can't solo a Level IV go back to III's while you train up decent skills. I can see where some complexes are designed for small fleets, and W-Space for sure, but Level IV's? Gimme a break.

Level IV's are what you do to earn Isk until you get your buddies together for some serious pew-pew. I wouldn't waste another player's time asking him/her to do missions with me. Unless they're a complete noob and don't know an Ibis from a Megathron.

problem lies in you not the mission, a good skilled and fitted mission runner will kill a bs every 20-25 seconds.
personally i would love for the bs's to be double as strong or double the amount of them.

make lvl 3's if your not skilled enough for lvl 4's or lack the equipment for them

Wave after wave after wave after wave after wave after wave after wave of battleships, each battleship taking about 10 mins to destroy. What's the point of making people spend 4 hours on mind numbing, boring, boring meaningless tasks?

Make the damn things shorter, CCP.

1. read a book
2. watch TV
3. download ****
4. talk to your pet (dog, cat, rabbit, gerbil, whatever)
5. mow the lawn if it's a nice day
6. do homework
7. improve yourself in some way so you do better a work
8. Are you just playing with us?
9. post with your main
10. you live in a basement
11. you live in your Dads basement cause your Mom rents hers out
12. I like ice cream
13. and pie
14. with maybe some cake after
15. and always remember to post after just reading the OP and no other

Need I go on?

10 mins for 1 bs......... fail


QFT.

10 Minutes per BS? What is this? Train your character and you will be better. Do not come to the forums and complain because you are inept at doing something.


I trained all the social skills because I'm a social butterfly. amidoin it rite?!?

do you ****ign realise how big the skill trainings are?, you need a reality check i think.

He might not get to THAT point I listed above too fast, but he can increase his skills to pretty damned close in a relatively short while.
Weapon Upgrades 4, Battlecruisers 4, Heavy Missiles 5, Heavy Missile Spec 3, Rapid Launch 4, Missile Launcher Operation 5, Warhead Upgrades 3-4, Combat Drone Operation 4, Drone Interfacing 3-4, Scout Drone Operation 5, <racial> drone specialisation 2-3, Electronics 5, Engineering 5, Shield/Energy systems operation/management to 4, maybe operations to 5.
That's all he REALLY needs, and it should take like what, 2 months tops ? If not less ?



heavy missiles is for lvl 2,3 missions not lvl 4, lvl 4 is bs weaponry that is needed.

it's like complaining lvl 3 missions take too long because you are using a t1 frig to do them..

This is totally off track here but I just looked how long it would take to train a new character for the type of ship mission running character fly for level 4's with the equipment I have on it:
165 days (with 8 of those days for learning skills)

I thought I would share. I am a sharing person. No, you can not have my stuff.

If the OP thinks that lvl 4s are long, I should send him into The Maze the next time I find it. Not only is it long as all hell, but there's no good payout half the time.

Short answer: you're making the most isk/per hour in virtually no risk space, stop whining.
