So last night I nearly snapped from the boredom and traded in my probe for a rifter, armed her with a couple of launchers an duel 200mm auto cannons.

Now, I know if I attempt anysort of PvP in this early of a stage of my character's development I'll get WTFpwn3d. But after doing a little huning last night, I have decided this is the path I want to pursue.

Now, my questions are:

1. If I am in a corp that doesn't pirate; should I leave? I don't want to, they have been a big help.

2. Once I head down the "dark path", is it possible for one to redeem a character at a later point should they wish to change thier way's?

3. I guess my last question is to the pirates, is it as fun as you make it seem? I don't want to get rich. Just blow stuff up and maybe get a hate convo.

I used to play E&B, but that game was crap, so I played planetside untill I heard about this game.

What you need to do is contact a pirate corporation first. Promise them phat lewtz in trade for even "thinking" about trusting you... you sound like you are prepping to stomp on some pirates rather than be one.

Then once you find the right people, fly protection for your friend in 0.x and when the pirates jump in, you lay the warp distrupter hardcore on your old corp buddy and help blast him to pieces. Then you pod your old corp pal and bail your old corporation.

Even then... I'd still keep my eye on you for a while. Not everyone is cut out to be a pirate. If you can pod your CEO as proof, then perhaps...

k first of all hommie, calling someone a fake just because you dont see it is the same thing as calling a fine femme a witch just because she turns you on.

Clearly she is casting lvl 30 eroticism.

I will try to answere your questions a bit seriusly.

1. If you want to be a pirate and your corp not pirate, yes switch corp.

2. Yes it is possible. But you need a month work for that, Killing npc etc.

3. Yes its more fun then it seems :D

Good luck out there.

That goes in top 5 list for most overreacting to a post. If you got offended by that, I don't know if you can handle the smack that'll be coming your way if you follow the dark path.

If you pirate, and your corp doesn't, chances are you'll either get kicked out or they'll kill you until you leave. That's what my corp would do.

Some advice: since you don't have a portrait yet, you should probably wait to approach a pirate corp. You're too young for most of them to take you; they'll just think you're an alt and pod you for your trouble. Get some experience fighting NPCs so you know how to use your ship properly. Then you can go after real players in low sec space to get some experience against players. When you've done that you may be able to get into a pirate corp, but the chances of them taking an inexperienced noob are slim to none.

1.) Yes.
2.) Yes, but quite difficult to do so.
3.) Yes, it is a lot of fun. Some of the smacktalk that I have witnessed is just hilarious, and that adrenaline rush; whoa, boy. Nothing in EVE is more fun than PvP.

Convo or mail me ingame sometime and I can help you out, maybe even introduce my CEO and pirate together. Have fun!

Piracy is hard. I would suggust learning the depth of PVP with a corp based in 0.0 first, and then graduating to piracy after a month or so.

It is fun (if unprofitable).

And you can repair your sec status if you have a battleship and access to 0.0 BS spawns. Otherwise you cant. Few corps will take in pirates, even reformed ones though, reguardless of your sec status.

I'm not sure which is worse, smack talking in a forum like a little boy, or actually admitting to doing it and being proud of it. Also, it's a pretty sad attempt at smack IMO. Who says "homie"?

Anyway, looks like you'll be right at home as a pirate (no, that's not a compliment).

1. You're in an NPC starter corp, and none of their members can be held responsible for the actions of others. I suggest you stay where you are so you're safe from wars for the moment.


2. Once you fly a BS, 6-7 months from now you can go from -10.0 to 0.0 in the space of 8-9 days. It does take quite a bit of NPC hunting, but not 'months' as some have claimed.

3. For me, piracy is fun.. It can be very the****utically to ransom or podkill someone after a long day at school/work. Just don't expect to make any ISK from it however. You'd be lucky to cover your ammo costs.

To be a pirate you need to:

1) Be able to sit and gank people in low sec systems Razz
2) Log off at the first sign of trouble
3) Smacktalk endlessly

you can pirate as soon as you like... just head out to a 0.1-0.4 system, find a 'deserted mining outpost' or similar spawn/mission location, and pick your targets carefully.

obviously you wont last long atacking 18m skillpoint chracters in battleships, but you will find plenty of characters at your own level to gank

hmm, well heres what i think you should do.
find another n00b (no offence) and start a little pirate corp... its not as hard as it sounds...
thats how i started my pirate career, me and another guy knew nothing about pvp or pirating and had mostly done missions and mining, but we decided to make new chars and start a pirate corp and then we just went with trial and error :D

and YES it is fun ;)
but dont expect your victim to pay avery time, and prepare to get your ass kicked a few times

I applaud your honesty about your career choice. Nothing beats the rush of combat in Eve.

As a pirate you will: make very little money; lose ships; probably die; get smacked by victims. However, IMHO the fun outweighs the risk.

Have fun out there and don't take the game too seriouslyVery Happy

get urself an alt for shopping in empire, as soon as you sec status will drop ya wont be able to enter high security rating systems( at -2.5 you cant enter 1.0, at -5.0 you cant enter 0.5 and above, and at -5.0 sentries no longer will protect you so any player can attack ya anywhere)

ps: this is a shopping alt
