I'd just like to ask, does anyone else still shake uncontrollably from adrenaline when they go into PvP?

I can't seem to make it stop, even when I want to :)


I actually created a thread about this in the Crime & Punishment forum.... When does the rush wear off? Go check it out. And yep, I still get a rush from it. Wink

And my biggest YES was definently my first kill... it made me want to become a pirate.

My best moment was when I got my harpy. (I flew Catalyst before that).
I went to pick it up and I had to fly 15 jumps back to where I live, during the flight i couldnt stop looking at it from all angles, seeing the moving parts, admiring the engine structure etc...

Damn that was cool!

Never was in so much awe again, not even when I got my vulture...

One other moment was cool though: My corp owned a T2 BPO that we had bought for 3B, after a few months we decided to sell it. I made an auction with buyout of 4B, and within the hour it was sold.

I had 4M in my wallet before, and 4B after. I counted the zeros from my wallet several times to make sure I hadnt put the escrow up for 0 isk by accident, thats how surprised I was it sold so high so fast Smile

Only in solo PVP -- in groups a lot less :) But that's what makes solo PVP so much fun, the pure rush :D

There's been so many over the past months that I can't really recall them. All the ones I do remember have been corp wide affairs, moments where we all just sit around thinking, "Holycrap, did we really just pull that off?" and the many times that make me jump out of my chair screaming, "Hell yeah, Goonfleet Mother****ers!!!"

My neighbors must think I'm insane.

I remember being really proud the day I got my first battleship. Saved up refined minerals from rat loot for weeks to build it... of course I relized later that I hate flying battleships.

A few weeks into the game when I took the Agony Unleashed PvP class and saw how awesome the PvP in this game is. =) Going from totally green to taking down a battleship in one evening, that's the good stuff.

I don't shake, really, but I can definately feel the adrenaline, especially when soloing or in small groups.

First big YES was saving my first 50m ISK to buy my first battleship, an Armageddon.
First big NOOOOOOOO was learning I'd been scammed buying said Armageddon.
Biggest YES was getting an Evemail from my research agent saying she had a patentable blueprint for a Sacrilege.
Last YES was for reaching 40m skillpoints.
Next YES will be obtaining level 5 in all the appropriate missile skills for my Nighthawk. Soon™!

I think I speak for a lot of people within Goonswarm when I say that today has been one of those days for many of us.
While the battle rages on, and who knows when it will end or where we'll end up, seeing the following was a 'Yes!' moment.

LOL! Reminds me of the time I was to be the tackler for the very first time. We knew the bad guys were in local, but didn't know where they were. So, the corp leader says "Nert, just let us know when you find them." I was, well if you see something like "alkjdfadksflasdfj" in the corp chat, you will know I found them!

Ahhh, got a huge stress headache right after that... ugh

I get that just entering lowsec even when there's nobody there.Smile

My first milestone was finally getting my Covops skill trained so I could fly the ship I had in my hangar for months and make some BM's for places that I'd been wanting to go for ages.

My enthusiasm was soon dampened when I realised I needed to train 2 further levels before I could even fit a Covops cloak.ugh

My first kill after beta.

Warped into belt found my mark with a friend and attacked. Killed my mark his pod warped and I started taking too much dmg from his friend so I warped off to a random moon to heal up. Warped back to belt to see the guy I shot in his pod checking his container. (which I forgot to scoop.) So I poped the pod and got his friend as well. (missed that pod somehow tho.) Anyway was a blast and made me realize that PVP is the only way to go in this game.

First solo PvP kill.
After lots of scanning and baiting, both in a Cruiser, both about the same (Eve)age, clean fight, friendly "gf"s in Local afterwards.

Had a smile on my face the whole day. :)

My first duel: we were on a pvp trip through syndicate with Euphoria released on small ships, when we suddenly see this retribution (tech 2 gear as i later found out) jump to us, and i yell: dont fire plz and ask the guy for a duel, which shortly commenced and resulted in my victory (surprisingly, as it was also my first 1 on 1 fight).

The adrenaline rush was unbelievable.CoolRazz First time i felt like a real pvp'er in eve.

My first really big 'Yes!' was my first PvP kill, I was annoying an amarr battleship of some kind and a thorax in an incursus, and the thorax pilot went and got a rifter to fight me in.
But I didn't realise he had changed ships he did it so fast, so when he approached I just went straight at him kamikaze style, then realised I actually had a chance of winning and panicked, so it was guns and web and scram and rep and orbit and cross fingers and ohnoes I'm approaching structure and omgz he is too and he's in his pod and I won yay.
Though TBH I would have rather lost through fighting calmly than won through luck. Fitting > Skill I suppose Rolling Eyes

Another good one was when I discovered I had gotten a module worth 30 million in loot, back before I had reached the 10 million mark for the first time. I've lived off that captial for a while now.... Very Happy

1. My first PvP kill: Apocalypse in 0.0 close range using a thorax and a mate in a cyclone (before RMR)
2. When my megathron popped Ikvar's Zealot when we had 7 and 38 mil skillpoints respectively. (Okay, amon helped in structure, killmail hoarder!)

There were 3 BIG moments for me personally...

1st was a long time ago now, my first proper pvp battle against Vatos Locos in Misaba, ended up pod killed but it was still an experience.

2nd was flying my crusader for the first time. Since then there has been very little else I've flown.

3rd was getting a small t2 ammo bpo. While this may not sound like much it was basically the perfect ammo type for my frig setups.
