Looking forward to your possible next projects. You mentioned ‘old d-scan classes’ a few times, probably from your pre-dev days, combat probing, tactical bookmarking or other advanced grid tactics come to mind as well.

In any case, your explanation on how to travel in nullsec and w-space, how to deal with bubbles and camps (gate burning, mwd/cloak trick, bouncing off celestials, use of d-scan) should be mandatory viewing for any new player (and some seasoned ones) :aura:. It is quite valuable of seeing it demonstrated.

I’m open for suggestions on topics. It’s tricky to try and hit that sweet spot of useful new player information that a lot of experienced players may not have a full understanding of to please both audiences.

In that case I would recommend a class on d-scanning, a very basic tool that somehow escapes the attention it deserves. The interplay of camera tracking, overview presets and the d-scanner itself eludes quite a few experienced players :smiley:. I believe that would grab attention (and be a ship/pod saver too :wink:). And it was never covered in any of the ‘old’ official training videos.

That’s a good one. Perhaps I’d wrap it into a larger ‘hunting’ class and talk about combat scanning as well.

Is this linked to the NPE in any way? (It should) Also, it’s listed under Events/In game events. I don’t think this the thd for them to be linked in to get the attn of new players? In fact, (just looked) there is no thd for NPE in the forums? :confounded:

Is there a reason the NPE should not have it’s own Category? There are a lot of good thd’s/links out there…

Anyway, thanks! I’ll binge watch what’s available when I get the chance. You never know what new tricks you can learn! :wink:
