1. noob moment was asking 15 times in noob npc corp to confirm that I wasnt going to die/ be killed when jumping through my first stargate. Ah that warm up sound was awesome for the first time.

2. Thinking my ceo was bad ass cose he jumped 20 odd jumps down to Metropolis. That was out of the Gallentee Feds borders- that was Minnie Downtown baby Rolling Eyes

I remeber my most noobish moment, it was during my trial period

I had just bought a new ship, finally got rid my old Velator...little did I know.

The chat went as follows

Dareef: OMG guys! I just got a new ship! Can't wait to fight some stuff in it!
Friend1: Cool, what is it?
Dareef: I don't know its name but it's really fast!!!
Friend1: Fast? How fast?
Dareef: Like 500m/s
Friend1: How much cargo?
Dareef: Not a lot, just 10m^3
Friend1: LOL!
Friend2: LOLOLOL!
Entirechatroom: LOLOLOLOLO!L!O!L!O
Dareef: :(

Looking back at it, I laugh hard

I remember in the first couple of weeks of joining there was a pirate corp (was it Zombies?) sitting at a gate in Yulai, ganking all the noobs and tanking all Concord's attempts to destroy them. All the buzz in local and in the systems surrounding Yulai was quite amusing.

Sadly almost that entire corp got banned for their fun, which I think is somewhat harsh even to this day as they weren't using any exploits.

they were right to be banned, i had a run in with zombie inc, thats the corp that did the yulai massacre and some of the talk was absolutely horrific, they were saying they wanted to do things to my relatives and all sorts of aggressive threats, they were an evil bunch of players that brought nothing good to the game, good riddance.

haha, these are great.

I remember when I was new, a few things:

1.) Not understanding how SHIELD BOOSTERS work (!!!). I would turn on my 3 or 4 civilian shield boosters before a fight even started, because I thought I needed to activate them ahead of time. Not even sure what it was I thought they did.

2.) Running out into low sec once I could afford my first Badger II, and finding a system in the upper reaches of Caldari space where Silicon (NPC good) was bought and sold on the NPC market in the same system. This is while I was training my learning skills, someone told me the earlier I do it, the better, so I did it before I could get in a cruiser (and almost quit the game because of it, I was so bored). The only thing I did other than logging in to change skills was to buy silicon at X per unit from one station, and then ferry it in my badger II with 3x Civilian cargo expanders to another station in the same system to sell for (X * 1.2) per unit, after which the market would reset, but I'd be 1M richer PER DAY!!!!

Wow.

Man, I love this game.

Back when I was the single most incompetent pirate in Decisive Outcomes, I was very proud of my nice Incursus fit with all the clever ewar strategy that I'd designed, and merrily pursued another frigate through 4 jumps. It was then that I discovered that he was flying an assault frigate, and that he was truly a gentleman, for he allowed me to scurry away.

In the process of doing so, I discovered an industrial on afk autopilot. At last! An opportunity to make a kill! I chased him through the gate, locked him, activated my warp scrambler... and learned a rather important lesson about PVP in lowsec.

(Imagine my embarassment when the assault frigate pilot arrived, moments later.)

Had that one, too.

My RL friend who got me into eve said "We gotta teach you how to kill people before we bring you out to 0.0" so he hopped into his buzzard, and I hopped into my just-able-to-fly brand new ferox, and we went and shot a miner in 0.4.

I was at work at the time, and I was ... in awe of the rush. The rush of me killing a mining cruiser in my pvp fitted ferox, which was a very one sided fight, still left me reeling.

It's like being in love, or doing ******[1]. Every time after the first time is just trying to recapture that feeling. But when you do, the cosmos align, and you know why you love internet spaceships so much.

Neither is bastard.
But to **** is, that is to urinate, sprinkle the golden yellow so to speak. Yet ingame agents think nothing of explaining how we "don't want to **** them off".

lol I wasn't in Yulai at the time and so can't comment on their smacktalking antics, I can say though that if CCP ever decide to ban all smack talkers then they'll only be 12 of us left :)

I outfitted my first pirating frig two days into the game.

It had a scram, a web, and a nos, all of which seemed very piratey, it also had a small shield booster for tank.

So I set my autopilot to a nearby low sec system, so far so good.

Once there I spot a hauler in a belt, so I lock, get the aggression warning, click OK and start firing / nossing / jamming / webbing.

I'm chewing through his shields and then suddenly...


LAG!!!!!!!!!!!


And I'm in a pod, surrounded by concord. Turns out I was in an 0.5 system which I thought was the beginning of low sec, being yellow. Oops.

I then talk with the guy I shot who informs me I now have killrights on him for stealing from my wreck and explains that I am now free to attack him.

Determined to get revenge I go back into 0.6 where I had my destroyer docked, undock and... lag again. I was still flagged.

Two valuable lessons in five minutes.

I still am a noob but the biggest mistake I've made so far is training up repair drone operations and shield emission systems because I wanted to use medium shield maintenance bots on myself. After all the training I took them out and found out the hard way you just cant target yourself. *sigh*

I thought I had found a way to get the shield back on my armor tanking Domi in between mission phases. Oh well, at least I have a head start on some support skills.

WAY back in the day, top named stuff was really expensive. And by expensive I mean 7-8 mill for a good tech1 named damage mod.

I tried to sell a Magnetic Vortex Stabilizer for top prices and got called a scammer...

Because I failed to notice that it did not have a "I" on the end of it.


And then there was the day I found out that Angel cruisers would warp-scramble while ninja-mining Ark in Ennur. I had no idea.

Flying my Stabber and running into Lord Zap sitting at the gate in a Domie with a BB and Rifter as support.

I turned and ran so fast I left half the ship at the gate lol.
