Bringing Solo Back is a podcast produced by Kovorix and I about our favorite part of Eve Online: Solo and Small gang PVP. We wanted to make a product which is rich in content, entertaining, and hopefully helpful to new and old players alike.

Please give it a shot, and drop us feedback here on eveo.

pretty cool not podcast thing.

can definately see how this would benefit people who are less experianced with pvp.

i'd like to hear your views on target calling, and how you prioritise at the start and during a fight. (i know this was touched on in the fight example, but as a subject in itself)

anywho a good start hope it continues

Thanks!

That is definitely something we plan on talking about in depth, and it will also come in virtually every fight we talk about... it certainly is a complex topic that deserves time.

i really enjoyed hearing about the small gang pvp in general, it doesn't get enough recognition in conversations with other players sometimes and with the patch updates it is never the real focus.

Excellent :-) Very helpful indeed!
The two of you work well together, great synergy.

Obsession with survival is exactly why sometimes its so hard to get good fights. People fear fair even fights. The less of that obsession people have, the better Eve gets.

The part about range was insightful. (24k points, Heavy Neuts, etc...)
I enjoyed the battle analysis as well.

Thanks you.
Looking forward to more in the future :-)

I have a question perhaps you could talk a bit about in one of the next episodes.
In solo situations, when do you take out enemy drones, rather than the enemy ship. When do you switch damage, and how much, just use your drones? maybe add a web?

Because I see in many videos, people have like 10-15 drones on them, and ignore them completely. And say even in active shield booster fits, with a smartbomb fitted, and 20 enemy drones working on your tank, they still don't activate the smartbomb (because its not worth the cap it would take?)

And I'd also love to hear about target calling in depth!

A podcast by two of my favourite video makers?! Yes please!

I really liked it. Even though I already know most of the stuff you guys covered in your first episode, it was still a really interesting listen and I eagerly anticipate the next one.

Personally I think it would be really cool if you got some other well known solo pvpers on to interview them about their tactics and thought process when they are out soloing. Garmon and Willl Adama are two obvious choices that come to mind.

Also one topic that is of high interest to me is the process you guys go through to find regular good fights. Is it just pure luck or is there a certain amount of careful planning of routes and roaming times that you both find are more inducive to good fights against small gangs as opposed to blobs or empty space.

it's good

kovorix seems a little less used to talking spontaniously, you don't need to like be all stressed and stuff, relax and just go m8 you are very competent

Nice!! Looking forward to more podcasts!!Smile

It's hard to find podcasts from anyone that actually knows what they are talking about so I really hope you make more. This is a solid start so I hope you continue.

I can't quite express into words how happy I am with you guys doing a non-podcast like this! I hope you enjoy it and keep it up (but don't burn out and don't let it take away from pew pew time!).

I'll second Aldap's request in hearing about taking out drones + heavy neut vs smartbomb or possibly both, sacrificing a gun even (OMG blasphemy!).

I'd also like to hear in depth about how you guys go about getting people to engage you and make mistakes + consciously and unconsciously splitting their own gang up not just by burning around on grid.

Anyway, this definitely gave me some more motivation to go solo and try out some new tactics, hopefully it did the same for others!

Yeah, have just got to the end. Good stuff actually. Keep it up.

You definitely can never expect to voice all new and unique things for each and every man listening to you, so don't take it way too serious :)

I know some might have had a subconscious feeling of the stuff you guys are talking about, but I guess not all of them can summarize it even for themselves. I mean, there are certain things I for one tend to perform mostly intuitively without paying much attention to why they worked out for me or why they didn't. You kind of address some of these things. Getting it sorted out in one's head surely helps Smile

As said, awesome remark on the Falcon. I still can't stop giggling.

I really enjoyed the "raw" aspect of the podcast. Straight to the juicey stuff and the presentation/discussion was clear and laid back!

Great start. I really hope more of it will follow.
