Greetings, good ladies and gentlemen of EvE.
After reading about EvE for so long, I’ve decided to give it a go. As I don’t have a whole lot of free time - usually 2 hours on weekdays -, my goal is to focus on PvP (the fun stuff). The harshness of it (losing all your stuff when you die et cetera) seems awesome. Reminds me of the old days of Ultima Online.
I’m very much interested in doing FW PvP as an alpha clone (cheap hulls & fits) as the PvE content doesn’t really interest me very much (except maybe for fueling ISK to my PvP activities through an alt via semi-AFK mission running). Or that’s the plan, at least.
To clarify it further: I’m not interested in flying expensive ships, not interested in making huge amounts of ISK, not interested in becoming a space mogul. Couldn’t care less about ISK/hr. I just want to PvP tech 1 ships in Faction Warfare. I was told Nullsec is boring, and I’m not interested in their politics / becoming a peon, either.
After doing a bit of research (watching Youtube hahaha–), it has become clear to me that FW PvP is a viable option for an Alpha Clone (what’s the fun of always losing fights?) and grinding level 3 missions in a battlecruiser should be enough to keep me fighting every day of the week. Hurrah!
TL;DR: Perma Alpha looking for constant self-sustained cheap PvP action in Faction Warfare.
Having said all that - sorry for the long introduction, by the way -, I was hoping you guys could help me understand / figure out a few issues I haven’t yet found answers on my own:
If somebody who is NOT in the opposing milita waltz into a complex (assuming I’m already inside the complex), can I shoot them first without losing security status? I ask this 'cause the whole security status mechanics seems boring as f* and I’d rather not go negative if at all possible.
IF I can’t avoid losing security status - ie: shooting neutrals inside complexes - and turn “red”, how can I supply my character with his much needed hulls and modules? Overly expensive solutions won’t work. The goal is to keep it dirty cheap and the action flowing.
Why is the Minmatar is such a horrible position right now? Is it normal (as in, the tiers fluctuate a lot) or is something else going on with Faction Warfare? I’d love to meet up with other Minmatar militia players and fleet up. Why Minmatar? The ships look cooler (do I need a better reason?).
Once again, sorry for the long post. Thank you for your time. I hope to see you either as friend or foe soon enough.
