i know there is level 1-5
and among them there is easy and hard ones
and it also depends on the ship

but still.. is there a page where the missions gets rated by us players how hard the mission is ?
i guess that most of us is aggroing all and then tank it out while taking ships down 1 by 1 ?

but yeah.. ratings like 1 to 5 ? in how difficult the specific mission is

hope you understand what i mean : )

As a loose guide, you can use the time allowed for getting the time bonus. A mission giving you 2 hours to get the time bonus will normally be easier than one that gives you 6 hours.

I would have thought that the very thorough descriptions of the missions listed in EVE-survival would be more than enough, for anyone with half an ounce of common sense, to help work out how difficult they are going to be.

Lots and lots of BS and tackler ships in a level 4 mission = difficult

3 frigates and 2 cruisers in a level 2 mission = walk in the park

Doesn't common sense exist anymore?

And if you click the comments people made.. you get a pretty good idea of how difficult it is. But yes common sense is everything but common sadly.

You can also look at what ships people flew the missions in, generally commented on the top of the mission, right under what to tank for. Those are generally a bit over the top but it gives you an idea. Golems/paladins for Gone berserk?

That is also the beauty of missions, you don't know what to expect until you try. Everyone has different skills, tactics and ships (well, mostly...I'm looking at you, Tengu-pilots).

If you are starting out with lv4s, I would suggest you head right or left as soon as you warp in, never in the other (backwards) direction cause the ships will be at acceleration gate incase you have to warp out. This is assuming you can move without getting additional aggro. So first move to the side and then move backwards...most NPCs can't hit for much as long as they are 50-60km from you. Keep moving away from them.

Then it becomes a priority game. Cruisers do decent amount of damage but die fast. Battleships do the most damage but die slow. Take out 2-3 cruisers or 1 battleship? Which option benefits you the most? Cruisers getting under your guns is generally bad (you can't track them, you can't hurt them). Of course web/scramblers should be top priority.

eve survival also lists what type of ship one should use to complete the mission. if it says cruiser or frig, chances are its pretty easy. if it says marauder you may want to stay clear.

but another consideration is that difficulty is dependent on what skills you have trained up. so you couldn't expect to get an *accurate* rating system regardless. just the generalities the site already provides.

well i can sit and tank in my dominix with tech 2 fittings so its not a major problem for me :)

it was more because i was curious about what to expect instead of starting to read those comments every time =)
