Just a bit of a boasting post from a noob so if that'll annoy you. Can stop reading now.

Anyway just started playing Eve a few days ago. 312k SP and most of those in learning skills and the bare minimum to fly around in my rifter. Have been trying pvp since I joined. The ISK I have was all made from what I think is called 'can flipping'. Been getting popped left and right. From gatecamps to everything cruiser+ sized. Though Amusingly enough I still make more then I lose from it.

Down in low sec and got bored after scanning up all of the asteroid belts for targets. Decided to just kill some of the rats I saw. Of course thats when a Rupture decides to warp in with its red blinking icon and everything. Of course I freak and immediately warp out. Though on the way I'm thinking 'what the hell am I doing' and soon as I hit the end of the warp I go back to land almost directly on top of him. Scram and AB going. We both start to open up on eachother. I died enough times to cruisers now that I've learned I need to take those drones out first. At the start it looks bad but each time one of his drones go down my armor drops slower. Just as I get to the last one I'm already starting to lose hull but his damage has slowed until my armor is going back up.

So here I am with my crappy transversal (I've never tested it to find out whats the best orbit for my poor skills), no cap as I used half my batteries on the rats and the remaining few tanking his drones and he's running a nos or something, like 30 ammo in each autocannon and my rocket launcher already out as I underestimated just how much ammo it takes to pop things (again i've only ever met fast deaths). But he isn't hurting me either. In fact my shields were starting to go up with how little he was hitting me. So I peg him with my autocannons and open up a conversation just as his shields went down. Praying it would scare him some. "5mil and I'll warp out." he of course then counters with "10mil from you and I'll leave". Which is of course silly as I'm in a rifter with all T1 stuff. I almost make money from the insurance I get if I pop. So I do what anyone would do out of ammo, webbed, scrammed, and up against a bigger ship thats actually in a corp that he could call on. I lie. "You want me to pay YOU 10 mil? Fine i'll just peg you until the gang gets here." my last few rounds in the autocannons start to make his armor dip down. Its only like 10% gone. "You aren't even beating my passive shield regen and all your drones are dead. You've got til they get here." and to my surprise I see my wallet window light up making me 5mil richer. Scram off and I let him warp out then limp out of the system to repair and refuel.

Man does it feel good. YARRRR!!
My first real win and that coming with a bluff after so many mistakes. He was of course a noob as well though he had 2 months on me. Just figured I'd share my first win.

Don't use terms like transversal in correct context, try "I need to upgrade my transversals but I don't see the skill on market"

Remember: all noobs must be completely inept morons irl because they haven't got phat isk, skillpoints or experience.

Hai guys, so like my guild told me to go to a dungeon in some place called low sec? I went there and traveled to an asteroid belt, there is no areana in this game but i heard that you could PvP in these belt things?

so like i got there and i activated my warpy thing, then like i engage all my AoE's im not skilled enough to have DoT's yet, maybe when i level up i will be able to go buy some from the skill trainer.

So the other player was like a lvl 60+ and im like a lvl 10, but it was like he was afk because he want hitting me? anyway my autocannons (this is like a wizards staff as it does damage from a distance, but yeah i wasnt doing much and he seemed to come back to the kb, so anyway i demanded 50 gold to no kill him and the stupid noob gave it to me, i then bragged in guild chat and it was awesome.

NOOB POWER

lol I suppose I'll try harder at being a noob. But yes this is my only character. Actually pretty cool people think I'm a vet or something. Maybe it'll help me get into a good Corp. Wink

All slang and such was gathered from reading all the guides set up on the boards from making ISK to using the directional scanner properly though i'm still working on that one. More often then not I just put the angle low and aim it at specific locations instead of really scanning around. Not sure how people do it with how many control towers and ships sitting at them just fill the scanner. I ofcourse did try for several hours to steal some of those abandoned ships. Even halted my learning skills to get basic skills for probing. Who knew there were these big bubble bases with sentry guns set up everywhere. But thats another story.

Anyway thanks for the replies, be they congradulations or calling me a pro. Very Happy

Make sure you check the box on your directional scan that says "Use overview settings", then just take everything off your overview that you don't want to see (right click, remove from overview). If you click that arrow/triangle thing on the top of your overview you'll see a bunch more options as well. I'd reccomend setting up your overview settings as well.

Good story and congrats. When you get rich send me some isk. Very Happy
