Hey all, i've been playing eve collectively for probably around a month now, and one thing i just cant figure out is what meta levels are. whats so special about them? i know they go from 1-4 and the meta 4's usually have better stats than the lower meta levels. but is there anything else special about them? Because some of the Tech-2 gear is worse than some of the tech-1 gear except for the meta level. if anyone could explain this to me that would be great

meta indicates someway the "quality" of an item. but as u said, the higher meta doesn't always means the better stats. sometimes named t1 has the same stats like t2, but using less grid or cpu.

higher meta really is for invention purposes, you can generally say the higher the named items meta level the better the item but not always gallente navy mining laser for example.

If you have an alt, and your alt has an a alt, that's meta level 2.

If I have an alt then my alt does have an alt, me.
That means the actual me is also the meta me.
