While PvP is not a foreign concept to me, I have no idea where to begin with it in EVE. I’ve listened to numerous fleet ops on Mumble, and often can’t make sense of the terminology they use.
Just this morning I learned “logi” refers to ships that are essentially “healers” of a sort. When I mentioned to my alliance mate I tend to prefer straightforward combat–I played a paladin in WoW and took a “rush in and stab it 'til it’s dead” approach–he suggested something I believe is called a “Ferox.”
One reason I haven’t been interested in EVE PvP is because they say not to fly what you can’t afford to lose, and intentionally flying toward something intent on destroying me seems counterproductive to the goal of keeping my ship and my implants.
Unfortunately, the game does inevitably involve PvP at some point, so I suppose I’ll have to learn. The questions are, where do I begin and what questions do I need to answer for myself before I’ll know what direction I want to go?
