Where are you flying?
One of the easiest ways to get pvp is to head to faction warfare space and just fly in a couple of systems, making sure you hang in or on the outside of plexes.
It’s tempting to jump into a system, see nothing on d-scan and then fly to the next system.
Jump into a plex and hang there for some time. You won’t be the only person roaming around looking for pvp; and if you are all just moving through systems, the chances of running into each other is small.
Just stop and pause and the others will come to you.
If you are in a kiting ship, then you have the advantage in a plex of setting up ideal range; and if something comes on close scan that you can’t engage, then you’ll have the time to warp off.
